Have you ever been to Reddit and looked around on the subreddits out of interest? Well Mark has and talks with Jason Kull and Producer Bobby about the justice porn subreddit. Mark discusses how the video and ideals on the subreddit are interchangeable with certain blog stories from Conservative blog websites. There is a ton of correlation and Mark explains how they use it in regards to keeping their fan bases close by and primed for anger.
Also, Trump doesn't really care for Puerto Rico's mayor or the people of the country. He has tweeted out many times since the hurricane disasters to other locales but not until a week later did Trump finally get around to helping the people of Puerto Rico...then he called them lazy and wanted everything done for them. The guys discuss a little about this because honestly it's difficult to keep up with Trump constantly starting issue and fist fights with everyone daily.
Finally, the guys stumble upon a game when they try and guess the User rating score for a Fast and Furious movie.
A much welcome surprise joins the Q today when Deyemofo (Justin Deming) decides to show up and play radio host with us. And what a great show to be a part of...so much in store!
First up is Nick Bryant joining us to discuss his co-authored book, Confessions of a DC Madam. His Co-Author Henry Vinson was the head of high powered and connected gay liason service which was the front for the government to get info to blakcmail people. In the book many notable individuals play a part in this cover-up and amazing story. Mark and Justin throw Nick for a loop when Mark brings up he doesn't feel there is value in blackmailing people with the homosexual card anymore....this leads to discussion about the value of people and power players in 2015 Washington DC.
Then our periscope becomes more offline than online when Sally Periscope calls in to discuss our opinions on the Donald Trump and the 2016 presidential situation as it lines up today. Mark explains just how out of touch the caller is with their belief that Trump will win the nomination and how disconnected the conservative people are to understanding the general malaise of the country at this point.
Finally the guys tackle pro sports and discuss the fact that the Cardinals got booed at the AllStar Game and that Pete Rose was given then good ole welcome back to the fold by MLB. All in all a very entertaining show and you will be happy you listened.

Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter and Sean Hannity....what do these people all have in common? Well according to this weeks episode they are all hardcore BlowHards. Mark Bland gets back to his moderate/liberal roots on this episode of the show by taking Limbaugh and his co-horts to task for attacking liberals and claiming they are siding with islam and extremists against the USA. The statement holds no merit and Mark and Bobby (who somewhat agrees with Limbaugh) discuss the value of what is being said and the people themselves stating it.
Also, Marks been holding on to a few letters from the listeners due to recent topics on the show. So he decides to get some out of the mail bag and the two hosts dig deep to help some deserving listeners with their personal and private issues.

Short episode this week. Mark and Bobby are once again Walsh-less, as Dan is taking some time off for personal reasons. But that doesn't stop the train from rolling on.
Mark starts off with a rant about kids and how they treat their neighborhoods and neighbors a like after watching them trash the street in front of his house. But this leads to a bigger picture in the end.
It's also Prom season and of course every year there is a new story about some prom going awry or people picketing a school for certain beliefs. Well this time around is no different and we have a young lady that was asked to leave her prom cause her dress was causing some oggling from the chaperons.
From there its on to a couple stories that are unique in a babysitter that lets things get way out of hand and finally some gun talk and discussion about Chipotle and their new decision to ask gun owners to not bring their firearms into the restaurants. Evidently the prank and decision in a Texas Chipotle was too muck for people and they needed to fix potential future attempts.

Well the results are in and it seems that 12 Years a Slave is the best picture in the land...but that deosn't stop the Conservatives and right wingers from claiming that the only reason it won was because of White Guilt. Really...white guilt?
Andy Echele, one of the Q show all stars, joins Producer Bobby, Dan Walsh and Mark Bland in their quest to discuss and figure out if there is this overbearing feeling of white guilt still alive in 2014 or if this was just the best movie of the lot.
This leads to a discussion about stereotypes when Andy brings up the recent tweets of long standing St. Louis Broadcaster Charles Jaco and if his belief about motorcycle riders was a "joke" that went too far or if there is truth to the background of certain stereotypes that Mr. Jaco's social statement was making.
Next the guys attack te recent decisions of Vladimir Putin and his Russian Army's steadfast decision to push forward on the Ukraine and their fleet in Crimea. Does Putin have a foot to stand on? Will this lead to another potential Cold War or even a new World War? And what should be the U.S. position on this? Should Obama have a say in this or should the U.S. position be one of isolation in regards to protecting itself? The guys look through all the options and discuss it all.

Mark and the guys start by discussing the superbowl bet and Andy's unwillingness to be in a fantasy football league with Mark.

On this episode of the show, Mark receives a few letters from the listeners explaining that they love the show but feel its getting away from its roots of talking politics lately. So with that Mark and Bobby decide to RESET the show and bring it back to some political talk and their first order of business is to answer the call of a piece written on WND.com about Obama being a horrible President.
Then its time for a jump out to the Sundance Film Festival for the 7th year in a row to talk with Anthony Cabral regarding the hustle and bustle of young Hollywood films. And for some reason it seems as though Ben Affleck and Matt Damon have a ton of places to be since we can hear them. This all leads to a discussion about KICKSTARTER films projects and how Mark thinks that eventually the movie industry will attempt something nefarious with them....listen in to find out.
Finally Mark takes some time out to discuss professional football and the Richard Sherman post NFC Championhsip comments.

Its Christmas time and in a rare change of events, the one with the rant is Producer Bobby! Although he loves his family and the people around him, he is a little jaded with what is the attitude he deals with from others during the joyous season. We will let Bobby explain it himself on the show.
But before any of that, a listen calls into the show to discuss the plan for Boeing to potentially bring their 777 line to the St. Louis area. It could mean big jobs and long term plans for the company in Missouri, but the listener doesn't see it that way. Listen to find out why he thinks it will be the worst move for the area.
Of course during the Boeing discussion the guys find out that the listener is a avid sports and baseball fan. This perks up the ears of Mark who decides to chime in on his mild opinion of certain players and athletes within the St. Louis Cardinals and around the league. Its obvious Mark excels at Pro-Wrestling and MMA talk , but its always interesting to hear his invaluable (and wrong) opinions of other sports.
And finally Mark finds out that the POPE is Time Magazines MAN OF THE YEAR. Once finding that out, he wants to know who also made the list and if the past years made sense in hindsight. Find out who some of the more prolific people were and where they landed on the charts in Mark and Bobby's opinion.
Also on the card is SELFIE-GATE with Obama, the return of BNN with Producer Bobby, another round of GAME ON/GAME OFF and OVERTIME (for the online listeners)
