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!
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!
Well when the powers that be decide that its okay to have a BLACK ONLY historical college, Mark and Justin discuss the ability for a WHITE ONLY college or school is an option. And all this because a fan decided to write a question that they thought would be good to ask...sheesh!
But before they get there, Mark and Justin welcome SAL WOODS on to the show to discuss his upcoming MMA Match for the MMA Federation in St. Louis on June 22nd.
Also, the guys welcome Bill Delaney again to talk about the new Star Trek: Into the Darkness movie that he just watched. Mark is excited to hear about this, but they never quite get there since the talk turns to remakes and re-imaginings in Hollywood. They guys all talk abou their favorite and least favorite remakes of all time. So do you think yours was mentioned...listen and find out.
Real Radio, Real Honest.....its the Q! Taking talk radio and turning it up to 11!
Mark had to quiet the nattering nabob that was Justing Deming from a past Overtime show where the two argued about the 1st amendment of the constitution and separation of church and state. So to put a nail in the coffin once and for all, Mark called to talk with Constituional Attorney BRIAN VANYO to answer some of the questions that popped up in the best Overtime Episode EVER!
After that, Mark, Jeremy, Greg T and Joe Licious settle in for three segments discussing intenet meme fame and how it can be deadly. Facebook and how people interact relationship wise on the show. A little about the past and how this generation is different through communication than prior ones, and then....
The guys get into a discussion about Toronto Mayor Rob Ford and how there is an Indiegogo page setup in the attempt to get money together to pay off a guy to release a video of the Mayor smoking crack. Its extortion with no winners and guy that has no recourse...especially when 10,000 people are donating money to watch him get his ass handed to him. Is this right, or proper. Should the intentions be as clear as they are? And will this lead to a new style of paparrazi or extortion for the coming years... We discuss it all!
REAL RADIO, REAL HONEST.....ITS THE Q!
Well the proverbial sh-t hit the fan this week as the Benghazi situation released some emails and they seemed...at first...to show a coverup of mass proportions. But it was bascially a scam by Regressives trying to hate on the POTUS. But then the game changed when the IRS decided to release information regarding their outright refusal to accept applications from conservative based groups. Self admission is a pain way to go, but they went there and so did Mark, Justin and Jeremy when they took on the discussion this epsidoe.
Next who better to join them and make his return to the show than the gloating and spotlight hungry Travis Cook. Travis comes on to explain how one conspiracy theory (they didn't even knew existed) makes them all valid.
Finally, Rolling Stone recently took a readers poll of the worst bands of the 1990's...and some surprising names showed up on the list. The guys discuss. Its the Q.....Real Radio, Real Honest!
We are in the mood to teach you about giving to good causes and on this episode of The Q, Mark and Jeremy interview Aaron Rice of Lance's Brewery Tour to discuss his uncles Autism and their attempt to facilitate a tour and writing a book about Breweries of the World through their KickStarter campaign.
After that, Mark and Jeremy decide to discuss whether Guantanamo Bay prison should be shut down as the POTUS promised a few years back...this of course leads to a heated discussion and difference of opinion. Finally the guys are joined by Unhappy Bill who blesses them with his gay movie review of The Hobbit. Plus a little talk about upcoming summer movies. All this and so much more on the only midwestern show that is REAL RADIO, REAL HONEST! Its the Q!
LADIES AND GENTLEMAN...Lets get ready to Rumble! On this episode of the show, Jeremy Bailey and Travis Cook square off in the First of what will become a set of discussions about many debate-able topics. After going toe to toe online through social media, Mark's favorite Tea Party guy and military veteran will take on current events and topics with differing viewpoints. Travis had one condition that made Mark bite the bullet: I will leave immediately and storm out of the room if I am interrupted AT ALL. That's all. Well did it happen? Did Travis make it to the end of the debate or was this doomed from the start. Find out on this latest episode of The Q....real radio, real honest!
Mark and Justin are starting this weeks show off with the breakdown of the new budget plan proposed by the POTUS. Including raising the minimum wage to $9. All sound good and the guys discuss why Obama is so willing to work across the aisle since the way he was treated in the 2012 election by the vitriolic TEA PARTY and CONSERVATIVE members of Capitol Hill. This leads to discussion on the generational gap between the people that are hurting and the ones that have money. This leads to a letter from a listener about the whole "It takes a village mentality" that seems to be missing in 2013.
Then the discussion switches to new things that Mark Learned in the past week regarding everything from Mt. Everest to Mr. Rogers. And the two touch on the fact that Jeremy's challenge from Travis Cook was accepted.
Finally the show is rounded out by a discussion of Narcissism and Racism. The borderline vernacular people use to skirt their racist tendencies and where the line between a word that was once racist becomes desensitized to the population and becomes part of the common everyday speech.
Its time for THE Q....Taking talk radio and turning it up to 11!
On this edition of the Q, Mark , Justin and Jeremy are joined by Chris Orndoff of HeadMetal Comics to discuss his upbringing in Hawaii, how comics have affected his life and where the idea for HeadMetal.
But before that entertaining slice of heaven with Chris, the guys break down this North Korea thing a little deeper since the rhetoric is heating up and creating a very vitriolic state of mind in SouthEast Asia.
And the guys finish up with their Wrestlemania 29 predictions as they do every single year. And for some reason, Justin decides to lay his new found love on the line...will it be accepted? Listen and find out!
*and do not miss this weeks OVERTIME...probably one of the most entertaining pieces of content we have ever released.
