Pushing Forward Like It's Working with Chris Santiago

Chris Santiago is a hilarious, odd, and one-of-a-kind comedian and an exceptional visual artist. He cares so deeply about creativity he taught high school art for 20 years. Is it true "those who can't do, teach"? Hell no, dude! What are you even talking about? Listen to wise, sweet Chris.

Content warning: stability, space, binge-watching humanity 'til its end, dreams falling through and changing, working at the mall.
