Nostalgia, mindless reading, and untapped holidays

It’s a podcast crossover! Ronnie Martin of The Happy Rant joins us in-studio in exotic Indianapolis to talk nostalgia, Christmas and romance novels, and trying to read theology.

And by “in-studio” I mean “in the hallway outside the exhibit hall at TGC.”

Listen in as we discuss:

  • Why Ronnie enjoys romance and Christmas novels
  • What’s really nice about writing for kids
  • If the name “Joseph” is cult-y
  • What are the boundaries of Ronnie’s Christmas season?
  • Is there a mindlessness to Christian living and theology books?
  • Can you reach a saturation point with a type of book?
  • Why Ronnie is anti-self-publishing
