Shane Presley of the Rock Paper Podcast decides to sit in with Mark and Producer Bobby to talk about his love of podcasting and the formation of his show. Shane explains his background of what got him involved in the local scene and his love of music and comedians. This sends Mark down the path of bringing up the background of comedians (not all, just many)and how they tend to be people that are broken in some form or fashion on a personal level...and thats what drives them to be successful comedians.
Next Mark runs into a rant hes been holding on to for a while. You ever goto the grocery store and when you are finished checking out, the cashier asks if you wanna donate a dollar to a charity. Well this has set off Mark on an epic rant about our society and how many places have picked this up and run with it over the past few years. Also the guys discuss the story of a man, his tooth and a wedding ring! Only in Merica!
Finally, Mark and Bobby throw Shane on the HOT SEAT to find out a little more about the man that has decided to brave the studios of the Q.

DJ Gelner makes his triumphant return to the Q to discuss his new book "Rogue" and his other one "The Big Book of Hobby Ideas" . Gelner joins the guys to discuss what his favorite hobbies were to investigate, as well as, the hobbies that lived up to his expectations of NOT SO GOOD.
Then its on to discussing the new list of HORRIBLE STATES to live in. Mark has been very up front over the years that he believes St. Louis (the home base of the show) is not a very quality place reagrdless of the things that locals try and say to pump it up....well does the list justfy his beliefs?
Then it is on to dicuss the Susan G. Komen organization and a few others that have some nefarious background to their running. Mark was in a discussion with another friend in media when it was brought to his attention that the charity takes in a certain amount of "donations" per year that go to suing other charities as opposed to being use to fund cancer research (as is their claim). Producer Bobby, Dan Walsh, Mark and DJ discuss the impact this has and what the legal thoughts and policies are on this.
Next its time to talk OSCARS! They are upon us and there are a ton of great movies up for the big one. They break down the categories and pick some winners. And finally it is time for another edition of GAME ON/GAME OFF. With that happening, DAN WALSH is not having it this week. He is extremely unhappy about a section of people that exist in the world and evidently Dan runs in to these people quite often. Plus there is a an OVERTIME where the discussion continues based off emails from last weeks Game On/Game off of Bobby bringing up assisted suicide of terminal children in Belgium. Where do the guys stand on this topic? Check out OVERTIME to find out.

On this episode of the Q, Mark has been trying for 2 years to get anyone from Breitbart.com on his show to talk politics. Well finally, one of them (and at this point, still the only one) decided to grace the Q listners with their style...That man is KURT SCHLICHTER. Mr. Schlichter is a noted contributor to the conservative think tank called Breitbart.com and Townhall.com. He is also a soon to be three time author and 2 time #1 Amazon.com best seller. And this show doesn't disappoint. Mark, Justin and Kurt go back and forth on many subjects. But did our guys get Mr. Schlichter to say that he took something in a moderate stance (GASP!). You'll have to listen to find out. And by the way....HE'S NOT REASONABLE!
Also, Robb Davis jumps on the show to talk about sports including Manny Pacquiao, the Dodgers and much more. All this for the low low price of FREE! It's the Q, Real Radio...Real Honest!
Matt Krueger decides to sit in with Mark again to talk politics! Specifically Mark has a problem with a conservative whom owns a company and has stated that if his employees don't vote Mitt Romney, they will all be fired. Also, Olive Garden is going to start sucking to work at since they are going to cap your hours to 28 total in response to inflated healthcare cost from the Health Care Reform Act. We will discuss... and finally we finish out the show with a discussion about the most haunted and scariest places on earth. Who made the list and who didn't....findout 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!
