In this episode of the Happy Rant Ted, Ronnie, and Barnabas rant about the following:

  • What in the world is wrong with people? The college students in this video are incapable of declaring obvious truths for the fear of offending people. Of course, we might be afraid of offending them by airing our true opinions too. 
  • What are we supposed to do with big-platform ministries that seem, pretty obviously, to be ruining pastors? Is the platform sinful? Is it just a good ol' boys club? What should our response be?
  • Big announcement, or rather, big tease - we are planning to have a LIVE HAPPY RANT in October in Louisville. We discuss some details and more are to come.

In this episode of the Happy Rant podcast Ted and Barnabas rant about the following while Ronnie is off fretting for his life and hoping to survive a week from conference hell.

  • Barnabas offers an on-site recap of Together for the Gospel, sartorial stylings and all.
  • The humor and awkwardness of singles ministries, not to mention some fantastically awful names for them
  • What is each host working on now? A book? A screenplay? A new album?

In this episode of the Happy Rant Ted, Ronnie, and Barnabas rant about the following:

  • D'Angelo Russell, a Los Angeles Lakers rookie, has been blasted in the media for breaking "bro code" by recording a video of a team mate admitting to cheating on his fiancee. But which is the real brach of code - filming or cheating or both?
  • In recent years pregnancy announcements and gender reveal parties have become a cottage industry. What is this insanity?
  • Why do churches - especially mega churches - feel the need to come up with pithy sermon titles and clever promotional plans?

In this episode of the Happy Rant Ted, Ronnie, and Barnabas rant about the following:

  • What's the deal with church doing huge, expensive "helicopter drops" and Easter egg hunts in celebration of Easter? Do they actually work for getting people to attend? 
  • DRISKY BUSINESS - John MacArthur claimed that Mark Driscoll paved the way for Donald Trump? Is this crazy or crazy like a fox?
  • Can Christian comedians really be funny or does the need to be edgy and controversial rule them out?
