New Happy Rant: Commencement Walkouts, Dissatisfaction, and F Everything

In this episode of the Happy Rant Ted, Ronnie and Barnabas actually explore some rather unhappy topics.

  • The rising trend of college students walking out of their own commencement.
  • When America is as healthy and wealthy as it has ever been why are there SO many books and messages being offered about fighting dissatisfaction? What are people so dissatisfied with?
  • What’s with the rising trend of people responding “F*** _____” to anything or anyone they don’t like – cancer, politicians, terrorists, etc.?

It would be so nice if you would provide transcripts of your happy rants. I am often interested in your topics, but I rarely listen to podcasts, yours or anyone else’s, because 30 to 45 minutes is more than I am willing to give to most any audio content other than a sermon. Think about the number of podcasts that are potentially worthwhile and how many hours that would consume; it seems that a podcaster is elevating himself significantly by asking people to give him that time when he could offer the same content to be read in a fraction of the time. Granted, some people are listeners, not readers, but for people who want to maximize intake, reading is far preferable. For example, Barnabas, I never listen to “Ask Pastor John,” because the transcript is right there. I can skim or read closely. I can even back up and reread.
I have no idea of the technology or expense involved in making transcriptions. Maybe that is the barrier. But if it’s just a matter of not having considered it, please do.
