Chris and Jason celebrate the "Friend of the Lab" title and lament the pain involved in repeatedly delivering a poor punch line (or watching someone else do so). Chris quizzes Jason over the five most full democracies and the five most authoritarian regimes based on five criteria. Then the two interview New York City mayoral candidate, Art Chang.
