New Happy Rant: Gospel-Centered Laws, Whiney White Guy Music, and Why Coaches Won’t take Risks

Well, Stephen is gone, but we soldier on. In this episode we introduce our new co-host, RONNIE J.MARTIN! Will he be with us for all eternity or for only a few weeks? That is as much up to Stephen’s whims as it is anything else. But in the mean time we will continue spitting hot takes like it’s our job. In this episode we rant (in a slightly less home school manner) about the following.

  • Why do “gospel-centered” people make so many laws about their gospel?
  • As a 30-something white guy, why am I expected to like whiney depressive music by guys like Ryan Adams?
  • What’s with professional sports coaches refusing to try new things or take risks?

And, of course, we want to highlight our sponsor – Lemon Street Mobile. Lemon Street Mobile is a local business run by an awesome guy named Brian who takes fantastic care of customers and also uses his business as an opportunity to reach his community for Jesus. Now he’s taking the business national and wants you to be part of it. He offers a sweet protection plan for phones (including repair and/or replacement options) for just $5/month and a $69 deductible. That’s less than 1/2 the price of the ones offered by service providers. AND for podcast listeners Brian is offering a 10% discount of that killer price All you have to do is use promo code HAPPYRANT at checkout. Visit Lemstreet.com. Not only this he does trade-ins. Use the same code at checkout to get a 10% increase on your phone’s trade-in value.

We also want to thank Resonate Recordings, the fine folks who make us sound listenable.
