Mark the host of the show has spent the entire decade spilling his heart and thoughts into the Q show and trying to bring some semblance of morals and thought to the political things he says and puts out. With that, we go into the 2020's ending on the most important discussion of the show's history...The impeachment of Donald J. Trump 45th President of the USA.
As this show was ramping up, the House decided to vote and Impeach the 45th president of the USA. This has been talked about for weeks and weeks. Debated for weeks and months. It's a very serious and sensitive subject, but also a huge change to the way the President is viewed worldwide and by other foreign leaders. Mark is joined to discuss all of this by Brandon Travis (our verified high flyer and resident thrill seeker) and Owner of Take A Hike Bike Shop, Joe Russell.
First up, Mark and the guys discuss being thrill seekers and how they connect and become acquainted with each other. This leads directly into impeachment talk. Joe and Brandon not being deeply ingrained in national politics discuss why Trump is in the position he is in. Mark illuminates other aspects and the gentlemen discuss their opinions about Trump and this impeachment that is ACTUALLY happening. Including the way the debates went defending Trump with crazy Pontius Pilot talk and other things.
This leads to discussion of False Flag operations and some conspiracy theories that Brandon wants to discuss. Mark points out to the men that being conspiratorial is technically anti-american in it's normal stance. Mark must defend his remarks but it all comes back to Trump not even having his cabinet full three years into his presidency.
Finally, and on the last one of this decade, Joe Russell of Take a Hike Bike shop jumps on the HOTSEAT to discuss all the questions Mark and Brandon pose to him. This leads down a road discussing the past decade and the favorite moment in the past 10 years for Joe and Brandon. This open another pandora's box and the guys talk about life and the strange places it takes you when viewing such huge chunks of your past.
From everyone at the Q...Joe Russell and Brandon Travis...and to all of you and your families...Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. We are gonna finish off the decade in Style and bring in the New Roaring 20's. Thank you 2010's for being amazing to The Q and all the friends/fans we made in the past decade. We look forward to doing it great for another decade too!
Ahh yes, the spirit is in the air for the Christmas season of 2017. It has been a long year and this final show of 2017 brings light to that fact. Mark Bland is joined by Jason Kull and Andy Echele to discuss the big things that we as a country had to deal with in Trump's MERICA this year.
First up the guys discuss Doug Jones beating out Republican Roy Moore which was easily the biggest political race of the entire year. Trump had put his name behind a few different people and they all lost. What does this mean for the 2018 elections and how will this affect the way the republican party is viewed?
Finally the guys discuss about Christmas traditions within their house and discuss a few movies from the Christmas season.

On this Pre-Xmas episode of the show the guys have a lot on their plate. First up is Danielle Muscato of Athiests.org to discuss all the billboards they put up in 5 major US cities proclaiming the need to skip church this holiday season. Danielle jumps in immediately explaining why the need for the billboards was necessary and the personal reasons of how she came to be atheist himself. But this doesn't sit well with Dan and he decides to chastize and tear into Danielle questioning the purpose for why the billboards are important in the first place. This leads to a longer discussion about homosexuality, racial inequality and atheism as it pertains to peoples feelings and Mark brings it right back around to circular FAKE OUTRAGE.
Next the guys are a big fan of St. Louis author D.J. Gelner and his amazing books of fantasy and sports. Well DJ has a new one called "Quantum Zoo" and comes on to catch up, talk about atheism and many other things that come to his mind...including zoos. He gets into a interesting discussion while on the Kenny Kinds HOTSEAT with Producer Bobby and has an all around good time.

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.

On this amazing episode of the Q, its Christmas time and Mark/Bobby love nothing more than to give the gift of audio gold....they succeeded this week! Mark and Producer Bobby welcomed living comic book superhero BOLT BRADY (Professional Wrestler) on the show and he brought along his friend JORDYNNE GRACE (also a Pro-Wrestler). Brady, Grace, Bobby and Mark get into a discussion of their wrestling backgrounds and that turns into a discussion about Austin, TX and what life is like growing up in that part of the country.
Then it is on to a game of GAME ON/GAME OFF where each week Mark, Bobby and the guests discuss things that are potentially unknown to the populace and they try to inform and let you know what to be on the look out for, or something that they feel is important to tell you. And in this case JORDYNNE nails it from downtown. The boys try to match up with their picks, but unfortunately, Ms. Grace pulls the trigger and lets the honesty fly....especially in the GAME OFF!
After a amazing visit with those two, Mark and Bobby switch gears to discuss the conspiracy theories that surround the 1 yr anniversary of the Sandy Hook shootings. Unbeknownst to Mark, Bobby is one of the theorist and he sits back to listen and discuss the value of a conspiracy theory and whether they are relevant. Finally, Mark is unhappy with the year end album lists from all the big music players and thinks he has it better (don't they all). He breaks down the Top 10 albums of 2013...find out if your is on the list! Plus a little OVERTIME after the credits roll on the show.
