Big Bobby jumps back into the co-hosting seat for another jaunt into the MOD/LIB (swing voter) political world. And boy do the guys have a little bit to talk about.
Seems as though Barack Obama wants to take some missiles, point them at Syria and launch. This all comes on the heels of Syria deciding to use sarin gas against their own people (allegedly). Obama clearly drew the red line a year ago and now he is implementing that aspect and being a man of his word (something the Conservatives hate). Mark and Bobby decide to take on the entire Syria discussion and flush out whether this is a good idea or not. Will it lead to potential World War with Russia chomping at the bit behind the scenes? We will have to see.
Also, Bill Delaney joins the guys to discuss the list of movies coming out this fall and the fact that one of Hollywood's greatest legends is deciding to quietly hang up saddle and retire from acting.
Also there are letters from the Listeners and a strange story regarding a man and his need to use feces while sorting things out with his significant other. Plus Mark and Bobby delve into a discussion about their children and things parents should and shouldn't focus on as they get bigger. Including a couple stories about the first time their children ever got hurt (accidentally of course).
Taking talk radio and turning it up to 11, this is the Q!
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!
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!
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!
After the most exciting start to any Q show in the history of the program, Mark and Justin delve into a discussion, or Mark's observation, that Barack Obama falls into that so tender and lofty position of HISTORICAL FIGURE (Conservative heads are spinning on that one). Also, Justin (being the new NEWS guy for the show)brings up the death of Larry Hagman and starts a discussion of the most watched TV programs in history. Whats on the list, listen to find out.
Also, Robb Davis once again joins the foray to bring the weekly sports talk to a head and the two discuss that yearly MLB Hall of Fame balloting and who should be included...or not.
All this and a return of the LETTERS FROM THE LISTNERS! Its the Q...Real Radio, Real Honest!
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!
TAKE OUT BIG BIRD! Wow the sh-t hit the fan this past show when Mark is joined by Matt Krueger and noted conservative John Scheper to discuss the recent presidential debates and how Mitt Romney decided to fire off a few rounds in the direction of PBS and their figureheads (one being the BIG YELLOW BIRD!). But the fun didn't only come from there! Mark was joined early in the show by Fred Slow of Too Heavy to Skydive to discuss the upcoming Krista Roberson benefit in Alton and Mark breaks down sports...much to Fred's dismay! Taking talk radio and turning it up to 11! Real Radio, Real Honest...its the Q!
