Trump can't stop himself. He is a detriment to our country and himself at times. On this episode we break down the NEXT (the guys refuse to say newest because it seems 2-3 things happen NEW each day) big situation with him...Supposedly Obama (former not involved in World politics right now at ALL) wire tapped Trump Towers to spy on Trump during the 2016 election and campaign. Everyone in the world knows its a desprate plea to get any news fodder off himself cause he is just not a good person. The guys decide to break it all down and discuss the potential end game for Obama if any existed at all or not.

The guys tangle it up about whether Obama has created more divisiveness or not during the 8 years that he was President. Matt throws out a laundry list of things against Obama that Mark and the team discuss and bat down in a rapid fire session of political talk. Definitely one of the best discussions we have had on the show.
But that's not all. Rob Schamberger from the WWE joins to talk about his early interests in being an artist. Rob explains where and why it came to him and what some of his favorite paintings are. From his time working in KC's indie wrestling scenes to his first WWE opportunity, we discuss it all with him.

Antonin Scalia has passed away and the candidates and the conservatives are just besides themselves with fury and anger over Obama possibly appointing a successor.
Mark is joined on the jaunt to discuss this issue with none other than former Q co-host and visitor Justin Deming! Justin also has a couple choice words for the conservatives of america that have decided to become a obstacle for the Leader of the Free World. Mark and Justin discuss the death, the conspiracies and finally the layout of what this means. Remember the 2000 Election and the need for the Supreme Court to step in and decide that Bush would be the president? Well that couldn't happen this year and the Republican Senate leaders have gone out of their way to explain that they will not allow Barack Obama to do the job he was elected for and pick a new replacement for Scalia.
This is a politics heavy episode as we are starting to see the primaries shake out and now with the successor needing to be chosen, this episode of the Q is very important for you to listen to.

Right off the bat, Mark sits down with Videogame professional and legend TriForce Johnson to discuss his career in gaming.

Triforce discusses his early days in the industry and his multiple Guiness World Records. Plus Mark goes for it all by really delving into why videogame players really don't have a crossover mainstream rockstar to put them on the map. They delve into stereotypes and discuss some of the games Triforce loves and hates.
Then Mark and Mr. Thomas break into discussion about the topic on everyones mind, mass shootings. Fresh off the San Bernadino shooting and all the mystery surrounding it, the two guys dsicuss the value of guns in America. Plus why violence runs so deep throughout our culture.

On this episode of the Q, Producer Bobby begins his sabbatical so Mark has to dig deep and bring back Justin Deming (@deyemofo) and Andy Echele to resume hosting duties while the producer is away.
This is an interesting mix because Mark immediately takes ire with something that Andy and another social friend posted regarding POTUS and misinformation. Andy being the Former military guy has an issue with Barack Obama not properly saluting marines as he disembarks from Marine 1. Mark and Justin then dig deeper and the discussion goes past the video and into how good of a job POTUS has been doing the past 7 years. Ofcourse everyone has a say and no one is backing down which makes this a intense half hour you don't want to miss.
Then the guys get back on format and talk about a school that refused an inhaler to a choking student simply cause they didn't know it had been prescribed and the school has a protocol to adhere to. Then its on to Edward Snowden whose in the news again cause he joined twitter and immediately started right back up influencing people via his new page. This pisses Mark off cause he believes that Snowden doesn't deserve popularity for what he did.
All this and Overtime where we discuss Retro Gaming! If you like video games and talking about old NES, the the Overtime is what you want to listen to.

Another week and another great episode of the Q is here for the pleasure of the world. And this weeks guest is no slouch when it comes to radio, being a former on air talent with the DC and the Family morning show...so welcome Jesse Barban.
This weeks show starts up on a down note with the news of WWE Ultimate Warrior, who was recently inducted in the WWE Hall of Fame, passing away in a very weird and unseen fashion. The guys discuss the history of the Ultimate Warrior. How he was influential to their careers in wrestling (Mark and Dan Walsh) and how eerie the final speech he gave on Monday Night Raw was in regards to the timing of his death.
Next the guys jump in and discuss the history of Jesse and his work in radio. Jesse worked with DC and the Family as an on air talent and has since taken a position with Apple. Jesse lets everyone know that his history with DC and radio date back to an old Steve and DC Halloween show where some land that his family owns was used for the show that year. This brings up a early part in Mark's career and how he was involved with the said radio show the night it emulated from the McPike Mansion in Alton, IL.
From there the men go down two separate paths. Mark received a letter from a listener complaining about the economic recovery and how long it has taken. Mark and Dan Walsh tear into the listener for being overly focused on the wrong things and how they play no part in the recovery in 2014. Next they discuss the decision of a foreign man to get a McDonald's receipt tattooed on his arm and whether this is a good/bad thing. Plus Bobby makes HUGE GUEST announcement for the next show.
Finally some GAME/GAME OFF and of course OVERTIME* that comes on after the show goes off the air. This is what you been waiting for...another episode of the Q!
*OVERTIME HAS EXPLICIT CONTENT, PLEASE USE PARENTAL GUIDANCE
Fast food places have a penchant for putting vegetables on their burgers...unfortunately, Mark is here to save the day regarding whether or not this is a practice that needs to be handled in this way, especially lettuce. Find out where you stand on this priority of national importance!
Next, Barack Obama has been getting blindsided by former secretary Donald Rumsfeld when "Donny" starts complaing about the Afghan wars and how the POTUS and his white house administration handled them. This leads to a war of words between Mark and Dan Walsh (being a former military man). Does Barack deserve the lashing that everyone gives him....the team discusses.
Then Producer Bobby brings up a local St. Louis story about a principal at an elementary school that oversteps their bounds in everyones opinion when handling policy with a parent of an autistic child. Needless to say the police get involved and Mark thinks its just a power play by people that are constantly trying to insert their will and force on others for no reason. Take a listen and see if you think that the school, police or Mark is in the right on this situation.
Finally, another week and another GAME ON/GAME OFF plus a small discussion about the most CONTROVERSIAL movies of all time. How many have you seen? How Controversial are they? Find out on the Q....real radio, real honest.
