On this amazing episode of the Q, its Christmas time and Mark/Bobby love nothing more than to give the gift of audio gold....they succeeded this week! Mark and Producer Bobby welcomed living comic book superhero BOLT BRADY (Professional Wrestler) on the show and he brought along his friend JORDYNNE GRACE (also a Pro-Wrestler). Brady, Grace, Bobby and Mark get into a discussion of their wrestling backgrounds and that turns into a discussion about Austin, TX and what life is like growing up in that part of the country.
Then it is on to a game of GAME ON/GAME OFF where each week Mark, Bobby and the guests discuss things that are potentially unknown to the populace and they try to inform and let you know what to be on the look out for, or something that they feel is important to tell you. And in this case JORDYNNE nails it from downtown. The boys try to match up with their picks, but unfortunately, Ms. Grace pulls the trigger and lets the honesty fly....especially in the GAME OFF!
After a amazing visit with those two, Mark and Bobby switch gears to discuss the conspiracy theories that surround the 1 yr anniversary of the Sandy Hook shootings. Unbeknownst to Mark, Bobby is one of the theorist and he sits back to listen and discuss the value of a conspiracy theory and whether they are relevant. Finally, Mark is unhappy with the year end album lists from all the big music players and thinks he has it better (don't they all). He breaks down the Top 10 albums of 2013...find out if your is on the list! Plus a little OVERTIME after the credits roll on the show.

Matthew Krueger decides to jump in and work out a great show with Mark and Producer Bobby as the men talk about Politics to start off. Matt wonders why LEFT and RIGHT wing are designated that way as Mark tries to help him understand. This leads to discussion about a disagreement on Facebook that Mark and Matt had regarding politics and the situation with everyone throwing a fit about the new Miss America being of Indian descent.
Then with Halloween being the next major holiday to pop up for our nation, it seems as some people got a stick up their butts about a Walmart Halloween prop that seems to emulate animal cruelty....what is our country coming to! Mark and Matt then Wax poetic about their time working together at a Spirit Halloween store and how Matt would scare the bejezus out of people while dressed as Freddy!
Mark then gets serious for bit discussing some new rules that senator Diane Feinstein is trying put in place regarding journalism and media in the US. Its called the Media Shield Law and its purpose is to set the parameters in some sort of fashion regarding real journalism and hobbyist. Something Mark has talked about on his show many times, but never to the extent that this law is about to be imposed. Everyone has an opinion on this and its interesting to hear to say the least.
Then in a final topic swing, everyone tries to tackle the new California minimum wage decision to raise the minimum wage to the highest in the USA. All having come from various backgrounds in life, everyone has their own ideas of whether this is a good or bad idea. And then of course it's time for Letters and Questions from the Listeners.
Its time for the Q....taking talk radio and turning it up to 11!
Its another swing around the old Pro-Wrestling game again for Mark and his guest Jovan Bibbs! The two men, along with producer Bobby, welcome Impact Wrestling Superstar AUSTIN ARIES to the Q to discuss his career inside and outside the ring. Discussing Austin's eventual plans after the wrestling business to hopefully break into the music business. Plus a little tug of war trying to get Austin to discuss potentially winning a title in another company and the unique answer he gives to that plight. Plus the men talk about their favorite tag teams growing up and memorable moments from their wrestling childhoods.
Then it is full stream ahead with The Q. Syria decides in a weird turn of events to just turn over Sarin gas weapons to Russia after a couple weeks of the USA explaining that they are thinking of a military strike. Then a discussion on a new show making some noise on the boob tube called "Under the Dome" and a chit chat about Jovan, Mark and Bobby's favorite TV shows ensues, including a show called Doomsday Preppers..
Mark and Jovan talk about playing in a charity basketball a few months back and how Mark completely dominated the competition (sigh). Finally they talk about Jovan's career as a comic and some of the perils of being in the comedy business. Also, some discussions on questions that white people have for black people and vice versa. Throw in a smidge of Letters and questions from the listeners and you have yourself an action paced show. Sit back and enjoy the new episode of The Q!
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!

All this and so much more on the only midwestern show that is REAL RADIO, REAL HONEST! Its the Q!
We've made it to 115 of these and the train just keeps barreling through life. On this episode Justin is taking a little vacation and Mark is joined by Tony Kozina and Jeremy Bailey to ponder those things which we don't speak of when Jeremy lets on early that he's having a weird day. This leads to a discussion about baptism and religion....and DRIVER ETTIQUETTE? After that, the conversation turns to the STL Comic Con that just came to town and Mark gives his review.
But the goodness doesn't end there, since the guys take on the #1 topic of the week in regards to the Supreme Court deciding on the Gay Marriage policy. This leads to a discussion about conservatives that hate the entire idea of gay marriage.
