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 podcast Ted, Barnabas, and Ronnie respond to some listener feedback and answer a couple pressing questions.

  • Are we simply "mean girls, except reformed guys" as one disgruntled former listener said?
  • Why do people feel compelled to announce their departure from a free source of entertainment?
  • What does "calling mean" and why do people use it so frequently?
  • Tim Tebow won an award . . . for being an author. So of course we ranted about it.
