We setup the round table again and we brought back Producer Bobby to hang out. But with him came friend of the show, Alex Elias, from AE Consulting Solutions as well as Jonathan May to sit down and discuss everything going on.
First up Mark has a conundrum to figure out. Is he CRAZY or is he being logical. Mark and his wife have a broken dryer and the need to wash and dry clothes weekly. Mark discusses bringing up the need to go to a Laundromat which his wife is not keen on. So Mark explains his theories to the crew and then asks, AM I CRAZY? Well is he....listen and find out the verdict
Also, Bobby Brings up something that he saw at LaGuardia airport in NY. A sectioned off desk and piece of ground designed for Free Speech. It's a Free Speech zone. Bobby was amazed and this makes Mark think of pop-up Rage rooms that he has seen online. This get Alex going and excited about a new business venture. But what about that Free Speech zone...can you say Bomb in it? What would happen? The gentlemen discuss.
Finally Mark brings up a new game he wants to play called Top 5. Yo name off the Top 5 of yours without telling anyone the topic...then the people are supposed to guess what your list refers to. An amazing idea that just falls apart but could be brought back in a more permanent way down the road.
It's been a few years since the Mike Brown/Ferguson incident and the family claimed that Mike would never rob a store. But the only evidence that was ever presented was a security tape from the store the morning of the shooting. It showed Mike manhandling a store owner/employee after he was told he couldn't have some cigarillos. So everyone assumed, here is this thug that is trying to knock over a liquor store and that eventually lead to his death.
BUT NOT SO FAST EVERYONE....seems that the St. Louis County PD and Attorney knew of more video from that same store the the night before (technically in the early morning of the day of his death) where Mike Brown came in, made some sort of deal with the employees and then handed the exact same bag of cigarillos over to the employees for safe keeping....until the next morning when he shows back up for them.
Mark and Alex Elias discuss this need video in detail and discuss the ramifications if there are any new points of view to take from this. They discuss the why and how of the case regarding this new info and if the rioting would have still happened or not.

Oh Donald Trump, how you woo the subversive people into believing a single word that comes out of your mouth. And, with Mark being a moderate willing to give anyone a chance, Trump seems to just be doing everything he can to grab ire and anger towards his presidency.
On this episode, Alex Elias and Jason Kull, joined by Board op Stephan, come together with Mark to discuss the newest revelations. Including the continued need to lash out at NBC's Saturday Night Live for parodying him again.
But, the best is when political commentator Jonathan Harris (OAN, Young Turks, MSNBC) jumps on the line with Mark and the crew to discuss where this presidency is going and if there is any light at the end of the tunnel. A big discussion is the way Trump treated Jim Accosta from CNN this past week during Trump's surreal first press conference since winning the November election.
All this and some fun phone calls from the listeners and fans!

First up is the general discussion about the latest movements in the Trump transition and how they don't look like its going to be a smooth trip.
Next Mark touches on the way we as people, if you are unhappy with trump being President, should view and handle news stories from here on out. Do we need to discuss everything that the man does? Does it take away his luster if we choose to ignore? That and many other questions pop up.
Finally the team focuses on how their zodiac signs attract people to them and a discussion about a lady, a guy and their unborn baby. The team is divided on whether the man in the relationship should have as much power and say in the relationship to do what he did. And what did he do??? Well you have to listen to the Q and find out!

Never at a loss for words, Mark Bland your host and friend is joined by local St. Louis entrepeneur Alex Elias to discusss his upbringing and thoughts on the STL entrepeneurial community.
But the main story and one that needs some serious discussion is about the 20 Million Dollar lawsuit filed by the Arch Defenders against Ferguson regarding the arrest of 4 people during the 2014 rioting. The rioters claim it was an injustice and unfair attack on their rights, but they got let off in the end. So where does the lawsuit have merit? The two discuss at length.
Plus a little Trump/Clinton talk with Alex defending his claims that Hillary is polarizing. Is she? See if you agree!
