First up is Nick Bryant joining us to discuss his co-authored book, Confessions of a DC Madam.

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.

But the train don't stop there. Producer Bobby, Dan Walsh and Mark then announce the formation of TEAM Q for the upcoming Rollercoaster 5k being put on by Six Flags the first weekend in May.

Also, with the Fort Hood massacre is fresh in peoples minds, a discussion on the base issues and what can be done ensues.
Finally its time for the NEXT Tournament of Pop Culture on the show. This time around, the guys tackle music and specifically 1990's music artists.

Fast food places have a penchant for putting vegetables on their burgers...unfortunately, Mark is here to save the day regarding whether or not this is a practice that needs to be handled in this way, especially lettuce. Find out where you stand on this priority of national importance!
Next, Barack Obama has been getting blindsided by former secretary Donald Rumsfeld when "Donny" starts complaing about the Afghan wars and how the POTUS and his white house administration handled them. This leads to a war of words between Mark and Dan Walsh (being a former military man). Does Barack deserve the lashing that everyone gives him....the team discusses.
Then Producer Bobby brings up a local St. Louis story about a principal at an elementary school that oversteps their bounds in everyones opinion when handling policy with a parent of an autistic child. Needless to say the police get involved and Mark thinks its just a power play by people that are constantly trying to insert their will and force on others for no reason. Take a listen and see if you think that the school, police or Mark is in the right on this situation.

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.
Also Game ON/Game OFF and an Overtime with more of those amazing advice stories you've come to love and admire. This is an episode of the Q you don't want to miss!

First the guys.....well lets just say.... things quickly fall to bad as Mark and Travis start discussing his cheating attempts with Dynamo Pro to win the tag team titles. This eventually devolves into a yelling fit between Mark and Travis regarding his political positioning and his hatred for President Obama.
After a cool down period...Mark, producer Bobby, Dan Walsh and Travis get back into the swing of the show. The Olympics are going on and Mark wants to know if the winter or summer olympics is everyone's forte. This leads to some talk about what sports can be killed off from the events.
Next the topic of federal rights verse states right comes up regarding guns and an attempt at a law in Missouri to override federal laws regulating them. This starts off a discussion of whether states rights or federal rights came first and a little history lesson from Dan Walsh....booyah!

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.

Jensen Karp are you READY? This is tagline from the opening of every single episode of GET UP ON THIS! on the Smodcast Network. Mark has never been a fan of podcasters cause of how loosely the term gets bantered around by "hobbyist" trying to portray themselves as real talents. BUT....no longer is that totally the case.
JENSEN KARP decided to join our team of Mark, Justin Deming and Producer Bobby to discuss his fantastic podcast and his interesting career in Hip Hop as a signed Million Dollar artist with Interscope Records to his friendship with music icon in 2013. Not to be outdone at any moment, Jensen talks about his decision to open his art gallery and how he has a special place in his heart for achievement in video games that he was able to solidify back in 2003. But the fun doesn't stop there!
Mark and guys decide to do their own impromptu version of Get up on This so that the fans and listeners can get a taste of what him and his cohost, Matt Robinson, do each week entertaining the thousands that listen. Each of the parties involved pick a "Get up On" (something in Pop culture and in general that you need to KNOW ABOUT) and one "get up off" (something that is popular but its time has passed). And by far one of the most fun segments ever done on the Q. So tune in to learn a little about things, Jensen and the Get up on This podcast.
Then we switch gears to discuss the recent fake/real trucker rally for Washington DC that seems to have a lot of "conservatives" involved with it. And they seem to have some interesting reps for TV. Also Producer Bobby brings some more BNN (Bobby News Network) to the table and a letter from a listener that is a difficult position for any person to be in.
On this Episode of the Q, Matt Krueger joins Mark and Producer Bobby to discuss the Government shutdown and the implications that it has. Of course during the discussion, the purpose for the shutdown comes into focus and the republicans need to kill off ObamaCare becomes the new discussion on the show.
Mark tries to explain to Matt, Bobby and the listeners that there is a lot of bad information floating around the water coolers nationally and tries to set the table for some of the things that people believe but are just not true. Including where to go and battling the conservative nature of Matt to look unfavorably on everything that the President of the US attempts.
Then with the finale of Breaking Bad in the books, Mark and Bobby try to hip you to some other shows you can look into, to occupy your time while waiting for the Walking Dead or some of the other heavy hitters to come back into season. The guys discuss some of the newer and better old shows that are available via Netflix and other streaming/traditional distribution styles.
All this plus a couple letters from the listeners and Bobby with his new News segment, its a packed show guaranteed to keep you happy. So take a listen to the Q!.
On this AMAZING episode of the Q, the St. Louis Radio Morning show legend DC Chymes decides to stop by and discuss the "Steve and DC: Morning Show" in its hey day! From top to bottom, including some behind the scenes stuff no one has talked about or ever discussed on the radio. From some of his favorite characters on the show, to some of their most talked about Halloween Episodes, DC delivers it all. If you haven't heard the show in a while and wondered what happened to those guys after almost 2 decades of hosting mornings in STL, then this is the interview you don't wanna miss.
Then Mark decides, with Justin Deming's urging, to rant about whats on his mind. Well the RFT 2013 Best AM radio personality award is on his mind and he doesn't understand how he got shafted. He congratulates Frank O. Pinion on wining the award (cause he is honestly a big fan), but lets the STL newspaper know just how wrong they were.
Finally former NWA World Champion, Scrap Iron Adam Pearce joins the guys on the show to discuss his new DVD "7 Levels of Hate"! The Documentary chronicles the 7 match series across the USA between Adam and Colt Cabana in the world of independent wrestling. The back story to how the events were set up, some of the executives that were involved and all the politics that go in to creating professional wrestling. It is a great documentary and Mark/Justin discuss the documentary and some of the less talked about things behind the scenes of Adam Pearces career, including the day he sent the NWA belt back to the executives.
