It's been a minute, but DJ Gelner (author) joins the Q for another round in the world of politics and pop culture. Immediately the show starts ripping and roaring right out the gate with Gelner telling guest Andy Echele about his work with GothamClub.com, a dating site for guys to get tips about women. Andy then lets on about how he is the kink master of all kink and starts describing all his sex capades in an attempt to make Mark and DJ impressed. They seemed like they were!
Then Mark asks the question of the show...Is the country more divided than ever, or is the media trying to make it look like that. Mark, Andy and DJ discuss which leads to what the breakdown divide looks like and some of the components. Do they figure out if it's truly divided or not, find out!
Finally the guys discuss some questions with Gelner since he hasn't been to the newer studio, so he needs to be run through the ringer. This brings up an interesting story that perks Mark back into the idea that there are natural dividers in society and Gelner's topic is one of them.
Dj Gelner a well known STL lawyer/author jumps back on to the show to break down the arrogance and attitude of bicycle riders. Their constant need to cut people off, tell you that you are #1 and many other things that get under the skin of both Mark and DJ. This also leads to a discussion about people with the "Please Watch for Motorcycles" stickers on the back of their cars. All of them tend to have attitude that is misplaced especially considering the show down between a 2500 lb car and a 30 lbs bike.
Next up Mark and DJ break down the Democratic debate and talk about some of the highlights...but this brings Mark around to talk with DJ about who he's backing in the election and of course The Donald comes up. Mark takes it to DJ about Trump and why republicans tend to favor this man. DJ brings up Obama and some of his decisions versus the type that Trump could make. Will it be better for nation? Is Trump a worthy candidate and someone that deserves a solid viable look when it comes election time? All this and more is answered on the newest episode of the Q.
Finally we definitely do some Overtime and welcome our most direct and eye opening Letter from a Listener in quite sometime. Listen in and figure out how you would answer.

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.

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.

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 show, DJ GELNER decides to jump into the foray with Mark and Producer Bobby and talk a little authoring and selling within the literary section of our world. Gelner is the author of "Jesus was a Time Traveler" and "Hack: The Complete Game" . Gelner discusses the process he goes through to sit down and write, where his love came from and what he is working on. Plus Mark creates a new pen-name for him to start suthoring under and without a doubt its going to sell a lot of books.
Then Mark discusses his problem with people in 2013 and their need to constantly think they have eveything figured out. He talks about a conversation he had with someone discussing the Afforcable Care Act and how the person was just uneducated about the helthcare legislation and everything surrounidng it. This leads to a conversation about this same mindset being prevalent in the conservative party and them being "google educated" about all the things they wanna dislike.
Finally, there is a little BNN (Bobby News Network) and a small discussion about the Richie Incognito deal and a New Mexico traffic stop stop that ended with a colonoscopy....A COLONOSCOPY!
