Ever been in a fight? Ever thought, hey I could do this and win this fight? Well that's exactly what happened when an off duty police officer got into a back alley fight with another guy and decided to get a mouth full. This story leads to a huge discussion between Mark and Producer Bobby about what is and is not fair in a fight between men. Which side will you stand on in this discussion.
Next the two host didn't get a chance to explain out their experience at this years Roller Coaster Race. So Mark and Bobby talk about the return of the Polar Vortex Dan Walsh as well as some unique aspects of the event itself. Mark just can't understand how two people running can hear each other through their music and headphones, but refused/couldn't hear Mark asking them rudimentary questions while they were running. This plus all the fun stories of the event.
Finally Mark and Bobby go back to the topic of technology and how it can help people in 2015. The discussion is based off what Mark and Bobby would do as CO-PRESIDENTS of the USA. Find out all the fun things they would implement as the leaders of the free world and how far they would go to make your living experience in the USA the best it possibly could be!
Plus....Dorian Johnson, the Ferguson Police department and many other topics.
(we know the audio in the first 23 minutes is bad, its passable but everything after that sounds great...so please bare with us on the show)

It is a sad time in the city of St. Louis and specifically a small section of the county called Ferguson where a young man's run in with the Ferguson police turned into a national story. Mike Brown was supposedly gunned down, unarmed, by a police officer and it set off outrage and rioting in the normally quiet STL suburb. The Q hails from STL and Mark the host is very closely related to the area in question cause that is where he and producer Bobby grew up in a neighboring city. With all that said, it was obvious that Mark, Bobby and Lucy were going to have to discuss this issue at length.
First up, Mark put in a call and got former St. Louis City Police Chief DAN ISOM to join the guys on the show and discuss what it is like to stand at the podium and handle a situation of this magnitude. Dan and the cast discuss the case of Michael Borwn, where it leads and what the potential outcomes are. Also they dive into the underlying problems with the lack of information coming out and how the public is viewing the Police departments at this time and whether that viewpoint is a correct way to view them. Plus the guys talk about race relations and the area of town where this is going on. A very in depth discussion on the show and worth every minute.
Finally....Tyler Crandall came on the show to discuss his new found success with the popularity of his "North County Song". Tyler joins the team to talk about his upbringing in North County (the county where Ferguson in located during this situation), what he likes and doesn't and to play the song live accoustically. And he finds a way to make peace with Producer Bobby who is not happy and tell everyone a story that is painful to hear.
All this and much more on the Q....Real Radio, REAL HONEST! And don't forget overtime after the credits roll for some more fun.
*There is choppy audio in the first 20 minute segment. It is annoying but not impossible to listen to.
