Chris breaks down how people who attend schools in wealthier areas get better food and educations than people who attend schools in poorer areas and how any school teaching state-sanctioned curriculum is essentially teaching lies.
Chris also explains what it’s like to grow up in a society where you’re constantly lied to your entire life, and how jarring it can be once you begin to open your eyes to some of the lies we are told.
Chris tells the “Wombat” story and the “Gluing Stuff to Lunch Trays” story, then discusses what “mechanically-separated chicken” is and why it is so gross.
At the top of the show, Indianapolis local “Lil’ Mama” Deshay Day’s courageous story is highlighted: “Lil’ Mama” was born legally blind and diagnosed with cancer. She recently finished her first week of chemotherapy and is back at home from the hospital. Please keep Deshay Day and her family in your prayers as she continues her chemotherapy and fight against cancer. You can also like and share the “Prayers for Lil’ Mama” page on Facebook to help spread the word.
