In this episode of The Happy Rant podcast Barnabas, Ted, and Ronnie do the usual: tackle pressing, urgent, annoying, amusing, and timely topics.

  • Christmas parades - predictably Barnabas despises them, but what about Ronnie, the Christmas Elf?
  • The awkwardness of Erectile Dysfunction ads, especially with kids in the room
  • The pressure people feel to represent themselves as something online - not falsely, but the expectations to respond, like, follow, etc. in certain ways in order to be seen a certain way.

  • Steven Furtick's microphone - game show host or rapper?
  • Introducing Ronnie to Friday Night Lights
