Moving on to segment number two, they tackle another crazy belief that Christopher had growing up; Karma. Discussions around his old cognitive biases could not be more delectable and surely will have you laughing.

And we wrap up with Christopher’s rant on The Working Poor as some people on his Facebook page have suggested that those on food stamps and unemployment should have to do community service to gain eligibility.
