Well all good things, or in this case bad things, should come to an end. Mark, our host, is not happy with his recent visit to the Sprint Store by his house in North STL county. He had a very bad discussion with one of their reps that is supposed to do everything to maintain customer engagement and representing the company in a positive light...and that didin't happen. So theres that story.
The rest of the crew discusses the release of the CIA torture documents and Dan Walsh brings his security clearance to the table to discuss the story and whether there is or isn't a ton of truth to the release of the documents. Then the guys take on some letters from the listeners where they discuss their favorite Christmas gifts that they ever got (and their worst). Plus people want to know what movie the guys have walked out on in the past
Finally the guys hammer out a good ol GAME ON/GAME OFF. Producer Bobby just seems to never learn and presents one that he has presented in the past (almost a year ago at this time). Mark brings a very interesting game off on the heels of the Victoria Secret fashion show and he doesn't disappoint people that like the lottery in his game on. Dan discusses a TV show you should all get locked into and then is not happy about a certain type of person in the world. Find out all of this and more on this episode of The Q.

Oh does the Q have a treat for all of you! On this amazing episode Mark and the crew are get a visit from Julia Gordon-Bramer the Tarot reader that has been blazing trails in psychic ability for many years! Mark orginally tells Producer Bobby that he is interested in getting someone with psychic ability to come on the show and do future readings for the cast...and without fail, Bobby finds Julia that fast!
Julia is from Washington, DC and the crew gets into discussing her background and a little bit about some psychic ability within Mark's family. From there, the show is joined by a familiar caller to Julia who jumps on to get a reading about her relationship she is involved in. It might not have been the best place since Mark, Bobby, Dan and the returning Lucy Mendez jump in to offer up funny insights of how she should interpret the reading that Julia gives to her.
Next up its time for the Q crew to get their readings and it is freakily spot on. Dan is told he is all about making his own way in the world and he authenticates that. Then Lucy is poised for some business changes in her world. Bobby is going to be taking a trip and Mark seems to be hitting his stride in his career. But all of that was unknown to Julia and with Lucy showing up last minute, there is no way for Julia or the show to know she was coming (so they definitely cold readings). Very entertaining and fun episode with a hint of Business Ethics at the beginning!

TLC has been taking the time out of their normal TV stylings the past few years to try some unique programming....well one of those programs is called The Next Great Baker and we welcomed St. Louis natives Al Watson and Lia Weber who are representing on the newest season of the show. They discuss what its like to film a reality show and our Dan Walsh gives great insight from his years on MTV's Road Rules and the Challenges. Plus they talk with the two about working with the cake boss himself, Buddy Valastro.
Then we switch gears a little bit, because finally our guy Corey of Strange Donuts decides to join us and talk about what its like to have a successful donut company that also garners national attention on TV. We find out where his love of donuts comes from, how he found his partners to build the business and some of the less than stellar attempts at companies prior to the donuts taking off. Corey discusses his background in marketing and eventually Mark and Dan (with Producer Bobby against it) present him with their new sister company to the Donut shop. Find out what they call it.
Mark also decides that he has had enough with Cecil Whittakers Pizzeria in the St. Louis area and throws the gauntlet down. Have you ever been hit with a delivery charge from one of these delivery companies for a restaraunt? You would think that they are giving the delivery charge to the driver, but NOPE....and Cecil Whittakers is brazen about explaining their delivery charge is completely a bonus charge the drivers don't touch. Listen in to find out the stance and what everyone else thinks.
Finally a little bit of Dr. Dan on the main show and OVERTIME, when we decide to do a letter from the listener and discuss many other topics on this edition of the Q. Real RADIO, Real HONEST!

On this episode of the show, popular guest Andy Echele makes his long awaited return to the show after spending 5 months on a island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean with the equivalent of 1978 life going on. Andy returns to talk with Mark and Producer Bobby about the island and what are some of the things he will miss and what it was like being put into self imposed exile.
Also, its 2014 and Coloradians have the ability to purchase marijuana legally without any repercussions. Andy takes exception with this when he brings up the legal ramifications regarding the national law that still has it as illegal. Mark, Bobby and Andy discuss the the two sides to this and why it will or won't work.
Also also Marks first rant of the year has to do with social media and how people tend to choose their ways of unfriending or even blocking people online. This comes on the heels of a story where a old good friend of Marks, that he never talks too anymore, decided without explanation to unfriend him on facebook and block him.
Plus....Overtime, GAME OFF/GAME ON and much more! Real Radio, Real Honest....its the Q!

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!
Well the world is full of scumbags and douches and there are three men in the St. Louis, MO area ready to take on all of them. Two are your wonderful hosts Mark Bland and Justin Deming.... the other just happens to be KMOV (St. Louis CBS Affiliate) Investigative reporter Chris Nagus . The hometown kid made good, joins the guys to discuss coming up in the journalism business over the past decade and some of his more glorious trimphs of defeating idiots.
Then the guys are joined by none other than Jerome Cusson of PWPonderings.com to discuss the fallout of mass proportions on the heels of a twitter message goen crazy from ROH World Heavyweight Champ Jay Briscoe. It all comes from the Delaware House choosing to support Gay Marriage. Well lets say Mr. Briscoe went a little overboard in his thoughts and opinions. They talk in depth with Jerome to get to the bottom and figure out what should be done.
Plus there were three girls that were found in Cleveland this past week after 10 years of being kidnapped by some derranged men (Boston Bombing what???). They discuss the event and the unlikely hero Charles Ramsey.
Its time for the Q....taking talk radio and turning it up to 11! And don't miss the Overtime 121 cause it was the most hotly contested discussion that Mark and Justin ever get in to.
