In this episode of The Happy Rant Ted and Barnabas discuss the following while Ronnie galavants around middle America like John Steinbeck:

  • Why is it that so many Christian organizations feel the need to wedge worship into everything from business meetings to sports to wherever?
  • Gut check with Ted covering Pumpkin Spice, NFL penalties, and more
  • We share our guilty displeasures. These are things we don't like but feel like we ought to since so many other people do.

We have a new sponsor this week - Ever Accountable (EverAccountable.com). It is an accountability app for all operating systems and mobile devices that will report any online activity, including that which happens within other apps like Facebook or Twitter. For couples and for parents with teens, tweens, or other kids on mobile devices this is a fantastic tool. It will open the door for conversations that need to be had and help build a sense of trust. And they have an offer that you would be dumb to pass on - 60 days free with no strings attached or small print. Just use the code HAPPYRANT to redeem your trial and get started.

In this episode of The Happy Rant Podcast Ted Kluck, Ronnie Martin, and Barnabas Piper rant about the following:

  • A few weeks ago the question came up "are we jerks?" It wasn't really answered because, well, that's awkward. But now the guys are ready to try to sort it out.
  • Colin Kaepernick, a quarterback in the NFL, made headlines when he refused to stand for the national anthem. The hosts talk through whether this is disrespectful and how we respond to protests in general. 
  • Which worship songs are the worst ever? And why is worship music so lame most of the time these days?

In this episode of The Happy Rant Ted, Barnabas, and Ronnie discuss the following

  • Pourovers: what are they an why are they? Isn't a pourer just a slow version of what a coffee maker does?
  • How does an athlete being a "brother in Christ" effect our feelings towards him? What if the athlete is Sam Bradford, the over-prices substitute for the QB on Barnabas's favorite football team?
  • What is a "thought leader"? What exactly do they lead? Do real leaders of thought call themselves thought leaders?

In this episode of the Happy Rant the hosts are reunited after Ronnie's travels and they rant about the following. 

  • A crazy University of Iowa prof is offended by the facial expression and demeanor of . . . their mascot, a giant stuffed bird.
  • The University of Chicago, on the other hand, has decided there need be no more trigger warnings or safe spaces. 
  • What are things worship pastor's should quit saying? Jared Wilson had suggestions in an article, and it needed some discussing.
