The Happy Rant podcast is a conversation which Barnabas Piper, Ted Kluck, and Ronnie Martin cheerfully (if sardonically) rant about all the things that don’t matter all that much and some things that do. Too much Christian interaction with culture is angry and vitriolic, so these three bring the humor, pith, and occasional irreverence to bear on it. They rant about church, culture, sports, the arts, entertainment, and occasional nonsense in a manner listeners enjoy and wish they could be part of too.

In this episode of The Happy Rant Ted, Barnabas, and Ronnie go a different direction with the podcast than normal. This episode is more serious and somber and reflective than normal. They discuss the following:

  • The suicides of Anthony Bourdain and Kate Spade and the outpouring of response, especially by Christians
  • Mental illness and spiritual darkness
  • What success and satisfaction really is and the ways we pursue it vainly
  • High expectations, large appetites, and how they lead to disappointment
