This world is absent of common sense in 2019. Gary Weed and Travis Corley of Agitate the Airwaves join Mark to discuss these moments of lapse in common sense across our great nation.
First up, Mark talks to Travis about being a promoter and how good he is at what he does on a weekly basis. This quickly switches to Marks new section of the show called "What dumb thing has Trump done this week!"
Donald Trump decided to take the Emoluments Clause of the US Constitution and explain that it is PHONY and FAKE. Which is weird since the clause was put into the document by Republican President James Madison. So even Trump doesn't like republican rules in the constitution. Trump also made a comment about Colorado getting a "Big Beautiful New Wall" to protect it's borders. Trump is so out of it that he doesn't realize that Colorado is not a border state. Mark explains that this is just gonna get worse...and Mark's pre-election claim of early onset Dementia is becoming a little more accurate as we get deeper into this presidency.
Finally the guys discuss a little Halloween stuff and talk about their favorite horror movies from the past 5 years. Find out who they recommend you watch to scare yourself!
Donald Trump went on a Houston stage at a rally and decided to let the world know that "I'm a Nationalist". Unfortunately for Trump, he meant to say "I'm a Patriot". Now a bunch of supporters are going around trying to make it okay to be white and call yourself a nationalist. Being a white skinned nationalist is not a good thing. The nationlism movement is ripe with men and women that are heavily prejudice and antagonistic in their handling of day to day decisions.
So Mark grabbed Producer Bobby and Jonathan May to sit down and discuss these things. But Producer Bobby doesnt' see the issue with a person running around calling themselves a nationalist. Mark and Jon have a one on one with Bobby trying to decipher between nationalism and patriotism....see where this convo goes.
But also on the the heels of the nationalism situation, we had random pipe bomb's being mailed to Hillary Clinton, Robert Deniro and many others that ave spoken out against Trump. Plus a migrant caravan is slowly approaching the USA on foot and we have to decide what to do when they get here...should we let them in and start the naturalization process, or do we draw a line in the sand? We discuss this at length!
Finally, Dr. Susan Shumsky is a paranormal investigator and self described Ghost Buster. She joins Mark on this 2018 Halloween show to discuss ghosts and spirits. Why do ghost exists and why don't ghost just go to heaven and stick around here on earth. Dr. Susan touches on exorcisms and a few stories of things that she has had happen while out and about helping people with their ghost issues.
All this and much much more on this episode of The Q!
Similar to the walls of Jericho, the trump administration might have their walls start crumbling in. Mark Bland, Jason Kull and Producer Bobby discuss why they waited so long for this episode. Well, Robert Mueller who has been following Trump and investigating him decided to arrest Paul Manafort, Trumps former campaign manager, for conspiracy against the United States. The guys discuss this.
Plus, Producer Bobby attempts to change the Halloween game before Mark stops him...AND there are a ton of weird conspiracy theories out there. The guys decide to read through a list of 20 and figure out which ones might or might not have merit.
Halloween is just around the corner and Jason Kull joins Mark to discuss some of the greatest horror films of all times. The guys read through a list of the greatest horror movies you should know about and add in those films they think you should see.
Plus, Trump is on a tear again and it's discussed about his need to repeal and replace healthcare. Signing executive orders just like Obama did (and all the presidents before him), Trump takes away the ability to have pre-existing conditions guarded from disclosure while signing up. So having one means that they can drop you from coverage or deny you coverage at a new company. It's a dagger into the heart of many and the guys discuss it in glorious detail and explain how we got to this problem in our country.
Finally, Taxes are a hot issue and should we pay them? Are they too high? Mark and Jason discuss why we have them and how people should look at taxing in 2017.
Mark, Producer Bobby and Jason bring you the yearly Halloween show. But with so much election still up in the air, the guys decide to discuss the Thrid Debate and all the crazy things happening around this election currently. Women are coming forward and accusing Trump of sexual misconduct. Hillary is getting daily barrages of her staffs email discussing battle plans and some sensitive things...and we have a Solar Eclipse that is going to cover the USA next year.
But the guys didn't forget you on this Halloween show. Mark puts it to Jason and Bobby to join him in discussing their 3 favorite Halloween time horror movies to watch. Have you seen them? Find out on this new episode of the Q!

On this episode of the Q, Mark, Bobby and Dan are joined by Jeremy Hellwig of the "Sorry Please Continue" comedy show. Jeremy joins the show to discuss the show, his life behind the scenes and his time he spent in China teaching English. Of course, when the chinese fans of the Q find out, they want to interact with Jeremy and discuss some chinese things. Then Mark talks about a situation at a Haunted house where the clowns decided that it was sexy time when it clearly wasn't.
Then the show moves on to discussing Veterans and whether they earn the rights and "extras" that they get in society after returning. Mark and Dan get into a discussion of parking spaces and the veterans that don't necessarily do the work that garners that true "veteran" status. This is all because Dan brings up a story about how Michael Savage verbally destroyed veterans on his show recently. Also Producer Bobby doesn't agree with Marks thoughts on waiting till late in your 20's to get married, so that turns into something too!
Finally there is some discussion regarding the special Halloween show (next episode) and then there are also some oddities that happen through the broadcast. Mark hears them but the others don't. This freaks out Bobby who tells a story from earlier in the day regarding a suspicious individuals going around the station. All this and much more on The Q!

Another week and another great episode of the Q is here for the pleasure of the world. And this weeks guest is no slouch when it comes to radio, being a former on air talent with the DC and the Family morning show...so welcome Jesse Barban.
This weeks show starts up on a down note with the news of WWE Ultimate Warrior, who was recently inducted in the WWE Hall of Fame, passing away in a very weird and unseen fashion. The guys discuss the history of the Ultimate Warrior. How he was influential to their careers in wrestling (Mark and Dan Walsh) and how eerie the final speech he gave on Monday Night Raw was in regards to the timing of his death.
Next the guys jump in and discuss the history of Jesse and his work in radio. Jesse worked with DC and the Family as an on air talent and has since taken a position with Apple. Jesse lets everyone know that his history with DC and radio date back to an old Steve and DC Halloween show where some land that his family owns was used for the show that year. This brings up a early part in Mark's career and how he was involved with the said radio show the night it emulated from the McPike Mansion in Alton, IL.
From there the men go down two separate paths. Mark received a letter from a listener complaining about the economic recovery and how long it has taken. Mark and Dan Walsh tear into the listener for being overly focused on the wrong things and how they play no part in the recovery in 2014. Next they discuss the decision of a foreign man to get a McDonald's receipt tattooed on his arm and whether this is a good/bad thing. Plus Bobby makes HUGE GUEST announcement for the next show.
Finally some GAME/GAME OFF and of course OVERTIME* that comes on after the show goes off the air. This is what you been waiting for...another episode of the Q!
*OVERTIME HAS EXPLICIT CONTENT, PLEASE USE PARENTAL GUIDANCE
KOBA is back in the US of A after 5 years and he has a lot of things to talk about including the ridiculous idea of people in the USA being against Obamacare and a few other pieces of wisdom. Plus Mark brings up the difference between saying the word "Socialism" like a catch phrase (which is a go to for all conservatives) and true "SOCIALISM" and what it means and really is....guess what....we are NO WHERE CLOSE to Stalin and socialism in this country. And KOBA lived it! So tune in to learn a little something about your neighbor that always says certain things they find on Google and really don't understand the meaning.
Also, Mark decides to take it to Burger King and teach everyone about his new favorite TV show on HBO called VICE. Vice is a documentary style investigative show where the journalist come from famed underground street magazine called VICE. Vice has always been on the cutting edge of journalism but this new show breaks down that attempted veil and really shows you how strong the staff is and how far they will go to get the story. A great thing to learn about.
Finally a little background on the Halloween party the guys went to and eventually a discussion of how dumb it might be for EA Sports to drop Tiger Woods as an endorser of their famed golf game. All this and so, so, so much more. Its time for the Q!
(Also, OVERTIME is now included in the main download for after the show is done. This way you get one smooth download and all the goodness!)

Matthew Krueger decides to jump in and work out a great show with Mark and Producer Bobby as the men talk about Politics to start off. Matt wonders why LEFT and RIGHT wing are designated that way as Mark tries to help him understand. This leads to discussion about a disagreement on Facebook that Mark and Matt had regarding politics and the situation with everyone throwing a fit about the new Miss America being of Indian descent.
Then with Halloween being the next major holiday to pop up for our nation, it seems as some people got a stick up their butts about a Walmart Halloween prop that seems to emulate animal cruelty....what is our country coming to! Mark and Matt then Wax poetic about their time working together at a Spirit Halloween store and how Matt would scare the bejezus out of people while dressed as Freddy!
Mark then gets serious for bit discussing some new rules that senator Diane Feinstein is trying put in place regarding journalism and media in the US. Its called the Media Shield Law and its purpose is to set the parameters in some sort of fashion regarding real journalism and hobbyist. Something Mark has talked about on his show many times, but never to the extent that this law is about to be imposed. Everyone has an opinion on this and its interesting to hear to say the least.
Then in a final topic swing, everyone tries to tackle the new California minimum wage decision to raise the minimum wage to the highest in the USA. All having come from various backgrounds in life, everyone has their own ideas of whether this is a good or bad idea. And then of course it's time for Letters and Questions from the Listeners.
Its time for the Q....taking talk radio and turning it up to 11!
Matt Krueger decides to sit in with Mark again to talk politics! Specifically Mark has a problem with a conservative whom owns a company and has stated that if his employees don't vote Mitt Romney, they will all be fired. Also, Olive Garden is going to start sucking to work at since they are going to cap your hours to 28 total in response to inflated healthcare cost from the Health Care Reform Act. We will discuss... and finally we finish out the show with a discussion about the most haunted and scariest places on earth. Who made the list and who didn't....findout on this edition of THE Q! Taking Talk radio and turning it up to 11!
