This episode of The Happy Rant brings about a significant first - the first time Ted and Barnabas have ever set foot in the same room and at the Baptist Mecca itself - LifeWay Christian Resources. The chemistry is astounding, like Woodward and Bernstein or the showtime Lakers. They cover such wide ranging topics as the following:

  • Barnabas's baby face and/or aging gracefully
  • Ronnie's trip to a hipster craft fair
  • Was the booing of Mike Pence at Hamilton really a big deal?
  • Who likes musicals any how and if Ronnie could star in one what would his role be?
  • The trend of leaving evangelicalism - what does it mean and does it make any sense?

In this, the first episode, we discuss the downfall of America, the end of the world, and whose fault it is. Or rather, the election of Donald Trump as president.
