October 1, 2022

In this episode of The Happy Rant Ted, Ronnie, and Barnabas wander to and fro through a variety of topics:

1. How do professors choose how much to assign?
2. What makes a good professor?
3. Syllabus flexes
4. How do we break writing slumps?
5. Romanticism about writing: where did we lose it and where do we still have it?
