Jefferey Wilson is an accomplished SAG actor and the producer of the newest TV show in the STL called THE HOT SEAT w/ Mark Bland! So Jeff decides to jump on the show today and promote the Hot Seat while also taking on the barrage of HOT SEAT questions he gets later in the program.
But that is just the start. Mark and Producer Bobby bring up and start discussing the police/citizen interaction video from Texas where a man was dressed in the Kilt with a AR-15 over their shoulder and camera rolling. Mark and Jeff are at odds behind proper etiquette in 2015 as a person vs. the right to bare arms. This leads to another producer named Hoop joining the conversation via phone to defend the 2nd Amendment.
Next the Dept of Justice released their final findings in the Ferguson situation from August of 2014 regarding the shooting of Mike Brown. They state Darren Wilson has no case that can be brought against him and that their are dirty things in the water at the Ferguson PD. Producer Bobby, Jeff and Mark tackle the more egregious claims from the DOJ report and discuss them in full...
Finally all the constitution talk from the main show carries on over into the OVERTIME. Does our constitution need an update? Everyone discusses in the overtime section this week!
On this Episode of the Q, Peter Van Lunen of STL E-Z Ticket joins the boys to discuss what he's been up to and how things have changed since the last appearance on the program in 2011.
First up is Mark's undying hatred for the stupidity of most conservative voters in the USA. Mark decides that he will take his anger out on the PBS TV show Caillou. But, no, truthfully Mark turns his attention to Local ST. LOUIS radio hosts that have decided to talk about politics without having a clue what they are talking about. Much less that, they don't even know the names of the world leaders as they crap all over the President of the United States and promote how awesome they think Putin is in comparison to Obama. Dan tries to interject and explain that these men are right to have the feelings they have and that turns into DAN WALSH vs. MARK BLAND live on the show.
Next Bobby is unhappy with the way people treat St. Louis, and he decides to let the people of the Gateway to the West have a piece of his mind! Then the guys switch gears and get into talking about moral dilemmas. They are those situations you are put into in life where you have to choose between two extremely difficult decisions that are predicated on your morals and ideals. And Mark brought in some doozies for the show. In fact the first one is so heavy that PRODUCER BOBBY will probably be at odds with his wife for many years, since Bobby threw her under the bus. Listen and watch a marriage implode in one sentence.
Finally the guys do a little GAME ON/GAME OFF on the live show and Bobby brings in a homerun for his game on. And we finish off strong with some OVERTIME and a new HATE MAIL you have to hear to believe. All this and much more on the Q!

It's been a hectic week in the good ole US of A and the social media/Internet is buzzing with the verdict of George Zimmerman in the death of Trayvon Martin. So what does Mark go and do? He brings in two of his more verbally astute guests to break down one of the most talk about trials in the past 20 years. First up is the FORMER MILITARY VETERAN (the joke never gets old) Jeremy Bailey to temper the blade of the next guest....Travis Cook. That's right!
Travis and Jeremy return for the first time together since their infamous Cook/Bailey debates. And Travis doesn't disappoint his Tea Party beliefs and backing regarding the trial of Zimmerman. The gentlemen discuss the ins and outs of the surrounding information and eventual NOT GUILTY verdict.
But why stop there, the state of Arizona has a nice little Solar Panel fiasco that has decided to rear its ugly head and it has Mark in a tizzy trying to figure out where this country is going when they allow people to save money, but when they save too much money, they start charging them again to offset the savings. Its capitalism at its worst and the discussion slowly transforms from that into Travis' discussion regarding his latest AEG episode called affectionately "SCREW THE POOR". Jeremy takes the bait and Travis/Jeremy begin a class war discussion for the history books.
Not a slow minute in this great episode of the show, plus all the typical favorite sections are here, albeit truncated for your listening pleasure. It's the Q...Real Radio, Real Honest!
Mark had to quiet the nattering nabob that was Justing Deming from a past Overtime show where the two argued about the 1st amendment of the constitution and separation of church and state. So to put a nail in the coffin once and for all, Mark called to talk with Constituional Attorney BRIAN VANYO to answer some of the questions that popped up in the best Overtime Episode EVER!
After that, Mark, Jeremy, Greg T and Joe Licious settle in for three segments discussing intenet meme fame and how it can be deadly. Facebook and how people interact relationship wise on the show. A little about the past and how this generation is different through communication than prior ones, and then....
The guys get into a discussion about Toronto Mayor Rob Ford and how there is an Indiegogo page setup in the attempt to get money together to pay off a guy to release a video of the Mayor smoking crack. Its extortion with no winners and guy that has no recourse...especially when 10,000 people are donating money to watch him get his ass handed to him. Is this right, or proper. Should the intentions be as clear as they are? And will this lead to a new style of paparrazi or extortion for the coming years... We discuss it all!
REAL RADIO, REAL HONEST.....ITS THE Q!
