Gerald, Rammy, and Anais tackle David Foster Wallace’s short story “Good People” which centers around a young religious couple who are debating whether or not to have an abortion. Rammy gets into a strong discussion with Anais about morals. Meanwhile Maya disagrees with everyone else about the theme of the story, which challenges Anais to read some extracts to clarify character’s motives. A heated debate ensues! Come for the bickering, stay for the strangest Which Would You Rather quiz you’ve ever heard.
