In this episode Ted Kluck, Ronnie Martin, and Barnabas Piper rant about pressing and sundry topics such as:

  • Bourbon, Beards, and Bibles - i.e. the Sojourn pastor's conference and Ronnie's hipster festivities there.
  • Casting Ronnie as a small town mayor in the newly minted show Designated Person. The listener suggestions are myriad and amusing.
  • Fit pastors: those who insist on sharing their entire workout routine via photo and video and sometimes whole staffs that workout together.
  • Coining the term "Evangelifriends" and putting it to good use.

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

  • Is Wayne Grudem the Brett Favre of politics?
  • In the spirit of the previously popular #FirstSevenJobs, what were our early jobs?
  • Church Networks vs. Denominations
  • What exactly is an Evangelical Free church?

In this episode of The Happy Rant Ted, Barnabas, and Ronnie go a different direction than usual. Instead of bouncing from topic to topic they hone in on this debacle of an election America is facing. 

  • Trump: The worst candidate ever
  • How in the name of all that is good can anyone defend Donald Trump?
  • How "Locker room talk" is an absurd euphemism for misogyny and sexual abuse talk.
  • Is there a way to vote in this election?

In this episode of The Happy Rant Ronnie returns from his pilgrimages and quests to hoping Ted and Barnabas for a riveting discussion of important and timely topics.

  • Should we be our children's friends and buddies? Should parents be a "parent, not a friend"? Is there middle ground?
  • It's Halloween season (yes, it now has a season) and things bout to get crazy with some trunk or treat, some slutty costumes, and some weird reformation stuff.
  • Clowns. Clowns everywhere. Clowns haunting our dreams and stealing children.

In this episode of The Happy Rant Ted and Barnabas discuss a number of pressing topics while Ronnie tries to find himself in the Alleghenies or some such place.

  • We received some rather scathing criticism via email this week. What is the best way to respond to such shots fired?
  • Tim Tebow is playing baseball which means the Tebowites have a savior to worship once again. Yippee.
  • What do we think of the Marvel Universe and phenomenon? Which super heroes are best and which would we want to be if we were super heroes?
