It's been a hectic week in the good ole US of A and the social media/Internet is buzzing with the verdict of George Zimmerman in the death of Trayvon Martin. So what does Mark go and do? He brings in two of his more verbally astute guests to break down one of the most talk about trials in the past 20 years. First up is the FORMER MILITARY VETERAN (the joke never gets old) Jeremy Bailey to temper the blade of the next guest....Travis Cook. That's right!
Travis and Jeremy return for the first time together since their infamous Cook/Bailey debates. And Travis doesn't disappoint his Tea Party beliefs and backing regarding the trial of Zimmerman. The gentlemen discuss the ins and outs of the surrounding information and eventual NOT GUILTY verdict.
But why stop there, the state of Arizona has a nice little Solar Panel fiasco that has decided to rear its ugly head and it has Mark in a tizzy trying to figure out where this country is going when they allow people to save money, but when they save too much money, they start charging them again to offset the savings. Its capitalism at its worst and the discussion slowly transforms from that into Travis' discussion regarding his latest AEG episode called affectionately "SCREW THE POOR". Jeremy takes the bait and Travis/Jeremy begin a class war discussion for the history books.
Not a slow minute in this great episode of the show, plus all the typical favorite sections are here, albeit truncated for your listening pleasure. It's the Q...Real Radio, Real Honest!
On this episode, the prodigal son, Matt Krueger returns from a long hiatus to jump in with Justin and Mark to talk about .....Pro-Wrestling???? Well I guess you can take the fan away from wrestling, but you can't take the wrestling out of the fan. This leads to Mark ranting about people that are on the internet all the time and think they have it all figured out (which they don't). This then leads to a discussion about how media, locally and nationally, only want to promote stories and information regarding people with bad pasts and nefarious associations.
Eventually the talk switches over to Paula Deen who has decided that black people should run around dressed like a slave wait staff from Django Unchained. The talk quickly derails into a thing about whether certain words in our society still have the same feeling and sting that they did many years ago. And what if the words we consider "deragatory" in our culture had a law change them to be okay to use. How would people react?
All this fun, plus a new game called "Who'd you rather hang with", some letters from the listeners and questions for the DOCTOR of LOVE to anwer outright. A very fast paced and fun show!
Real Radio, Real Honest....its the Q!
Well another show dawns on us and we grab Tony Kozina and Jeremy Bailey to jump on the old train for our weekly jaunt through life. After being silent on it for over a week (cause unlike conservatives, we try to wait until more facts are in about a specific topic or "conspiracy") Mark and the boys dive head first into the NSA surveillence situation. Discussing the "who's and what's" of whether the PATRIOT ACT is a good or bad thing (The LIBS tried tellign Bush it was a bad thing when he passed it during his presidency)....and all the good stuff associated with you losing your freedoms of privacy to keep you a littel safer.
Then the gears get switched when the men bring on Grae Drake from Rotten Tomatoes to discuss the huge movies of the summer and what is not being talked about. Grae answers a past show question and they all discuss the validity of M. Night Shyamalan as a director...and Mark beats Grae to the punch and teaches her something about a certain movie she didn't even realize. Definitely a heads up for great stuff coming out.
And finally the lover doctors are back as Tony Kozina decides to help out a young lady with a relationship problem and they all realize really fast that Tony truly is the love doctor or extremely versed in horrible relationships.
On this episode of The Q. Mark and Jeremy decide to fly the whole show by themselves discussing everything from what its like to be in the NAVY as well as the two guys horrible weeks. Car crashes and thunderstorms plagued the Midwest and these two were square in the middle of it as Tornadoes took out Mark's power and a wreck (without air bags deploying) almost took out Jeremy.
And the ranting doesn't stop there cause a Scripps National Spelling Bee champion was crowned and Mark doesn't like their introvert styles. Then it becomes a show about Hitlers when they talk about a Father of the Year candidate trying to get his custody rights back and a problem that JC Penny's is currently dealing with.
At this point Mark starts to take some Letters from the Listeners and one question in particular puts the show over the edge when Jeremy starts divulging a story from his military past. And a discussion regarding the recession puts Mark over the edge as he tries to explain how far we are from the economy being good again for the middle class and lower people.
Taking talk radio and turning it up to 11....its THE Q!
