Finding Happiness & Failing to Finish Sentences


It’s been a week. Read into that whatever you wish, and you’re probably going to be correct. We could all use a little bit of happiness (I know I could), so this week, Scarlet, Dave, and I are joined once again by our good friend Barnabas Piper, to celebrate the official release of his brand-new book, Hoping for Happiness, available now wherever books are sold. Listen in as we discuss:

  • Barnabas’ release day announcement
  • Where my copy of Barnabas’ book is (and why they all got sent to Scarlet)
  • Canned interview questions
  • Dave repeatedly violating the Nashville Rule*
  • Why we feel bad about being happy and enjoying things
  • Books that make us happy
  • Why I can’t keep it together long enough to complete a sentence
  • Why this episode probably should have been called, “Sorry vegans, this one’s not for you.”

And for those who missed it, here’s the way Barnabas announced the book’s release:

Hoping for Happiness by Barnabas Piper is available now, so go get a copy!
