On this episode of The Q, Mark and Justin are joined by rival radio political host Tony Katz of rival St. Louis radio station 97.1 FM. Tony is a self proclaimed member of the Tea Party. A sensationalist to the extreme, it doesn't take long before the cats out the bag and Justin is verbally going TOE to TOE with Mr. Katz . So was there any common ground to be had? Listen in and find out!
In the second half of the show, Mark decides to take some Listener Emails, but that doesn't last long before him and riled up Justin start to discuss the virtues of being Homosexual and whether or not they are a bigger burden to themselves than they should be.
Its definitely a show to not miss and once again THE Q proves to be the only stomping ground where and ANY and ALL individuals (regardless of politics) can come to square up and throw down on the topics that influence our country! Real Radio, Real Honest.....its THE Q!
Mike Parsons and Robb Davis decide to join Mark for this shortened (due to compromise) final episode of 2012. The guys look back on the year including the death of Whitney Houston, Bounty Gate, face eating zombies in Florida and school shootings in CT. Also, let us not forget that it was also the the first year of Mark and Mike being a part of the Too Heavy to Skydive fantasy podcast league. Mark finally releases his feelings on beating out two other podcasts (hopefully they won't try in 2013 or the same results might ensue). And finally, the guys pick their story of the year for you all to remember. So take a trip with them back down memory lane as THE Q breaks down 2012!
Taking talk radio and turning it up to 11!
Suns out, Guns out! On this episode of the Q, Its Christmas time 2012 and the boys are still handling discussions about gun laws and the Sandy Hook elementary shooting. Plus Mark brings up some letters from the listeners to Justin, including a saucy tale about two brothers that you don't want to miss at all. Mark reiterates his past disgust for hipsters and their coffee habits. And the last live show of the year couldn't happen without a Ben Affleck story. All this and the sweet Chritmas music that you have come to love. This is the 2012 Christmas edition of The Q...Real radio , Real Honest.
Well we made it to EPISODE 100 and we had a lot of fun things planned for the show....but then LIFE happened. A killer went into the elementary school in Newtown, CT and killed 26 people including 20 kindergarteners. I was a heart wrenching thing to see and hear about as it unfolded and by virtue of Mark's position on KYRO 1280am, it was necessary to put all the fanfare behind themselves and try to help a nation as it coped with unbelievable loss. Listen as camedian Matt Conty and Justin Deming join Mark in a very entertaining and interesting discussion surrounding the events that took place.

Aaron Perlut of RallyStl.Org joins Mark to discuss the new crowdsourcing platform that he and his fellow partners are implementing . But then the topic switches a bit when Aaron brings up his American Mustache Institute and their plight to keep the Mustaches ALIVE!
Also, a big announcement for the show. Mark is trying out a new co-host in the form of Justin Deming . Although he was under the weather, Justin brings another feel of moderate/liberal love to the show that can not be described in words. Throughout the show, Mark and Justin discuss the horrible Hostess situation and then Mark rants on Unions for a bit (mod/lib...weird). Also the impeachment talk has started and the two wax on the ideas of why the Regressives would even argue this as a point. This is the Q and we are taking talk radio and turning it to 11!
Well the ELECTION 2012 is OVER! Butt Hurt Wednesday, as Mark promised, also came and went. But we wanted to really get a good look at the Conservatives during the post election time and we do not fail to deliver. Mark is joined by Drew Ishmael and Travis Cook to get their opinion on the conservative movement and where they think this country is going. But alas, the conversation quickly devolves into a discussion on how much race played a part. Mark explains a story where a radio host showed his true colors upon finding out Obama won and Mark & Drew take jabs back and forth at each other...but like men do....face to face. All this and Robb Davis joins us again for some sports talk. The Q....REAL RADIO, REAL HONEST!
It's ELECTION TIME and a few days before the BIG ONE for 2012, Mark invites in Paranormal Researcher and Conservative Adam Jackson to break down the view points of the Elections sides and the respective Candidates, all before giving their Last Ditch Attempts to sway your votes to their sides.
But before all that can happen, Mark decides he's gonna do some ranting. And he has no clue where he is going but he gonna just put it all out there. Calling out other STL media professionals and conservatives. It is quite the site to behold. But then, in a shocking twist, that has never happened before....our Conservative Adam throws us for a loop and LIES! NO WAY...find out why, how and how petty the lie. All this and much more on this edition of the Q. Taking talk radio and turning it up to 11!
