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, Ronnie, and Barnabas get more serious. They talk about Josh Harris's recent announcement that he and his wife are getting a divorce. In this episode the guys discuss:

  • The risk and foolishness of attaching public message and persona to private life
  • The tone (or tone deafness) of public announcements like this
  • The stupid, cruel comments people make about tragic announcements
  • What information do public figures owe to whom?
  • Purity culture and public vitriol
