It's been a while in the making but two influential guys from the STL finally got a chance to sit down and talk some politics and pop culture. First things first, Gary Weed returns to the show to help Mark welcome their guest, Wes Hoffman. Wes is a social media influencer and all around positivity person on the streets of St. Louis. Wes is the founder of Treehouse Network and runs his own career counseling business named Stay Connected STL (www.stayconnectedstl.com). Wes joins in to follow the leader as discus some current events of our time.
First up is Mark, before getting sidetracked, discussing with Wes what he does for a living and how he got to where he is in life. This leads to Mark realizing there are catch phrases and cliche words used often within the business world. The guys discuss the value of of these words and why the word "Preneur" was attached to so many things a few years ago.
Next up, It's Mueller Time! That's right...Robert Mueller finally testified in front of Congress about his report and investigation regarding Donald Trump and Russian Collusion in 2015/2016. But was it a good move or not? How about the the timing of everything? The guys talk about what they liked and how they thought it looks to everyone else around the world and in the USA. Did the DEM's get the win they needed? Was Mueller the final nail in the coffin of Donald Trump....the discussion is on!
Finally, Mark and Gary have to put Wes through the HOTSEAT since he is a first time guest on the show. But first, Mark wants to give the people a taste of what working with Wes would be like. How are the questions phrased? What kind of thoughts and focus does Wes put into his work. Find out what his Hotseat answers were, as well as how Wes handles clients on this amazing episode of the Q!
Sometimes, it takes time for things to pass before you can come back around and reconnect. Sometimes it's as if no time has passed at all. Well we get the best of both worlds on this weeks episode of the Q.
Bj "The No Limit Honkey" Lange joins Mark, Gary and Jason as he travels back to the STL where he called home for many years. Mark and BJ were co-hosts on a weekly music video show called "Mega Music" back in 2001. Since those days, they have kept in contact and decided to re-connect for an episode. Which is great since it's the final episode of 2018!
First up, BJ discusses where he has been the past 15 solid years. From moving to LA, to acting, to improv and even into his cancer diagnosis which he has fought TWICE now and succeeded.
But don't think we stepped away from our core for another episode. No way. Donald Trump kept up his ridiculousness all the way through the holidays and up to the last days of the 2018. From asking a 7 yr old girl if Santa is real, all the way to throwing a temper tantrum and refusing to leave the white house for Christmas break when everyone else did. Finally he did something nice that no one on the Q can fault him for....he visited the troops in Iraq for Christmas...but only because he was shamed into it again. 1 Step forward, 2 steps back is his M.O.
From there, the show hits a lot of notes from the year 2018. A list of things you might have forgot happened in 2018 (weak list). As well as discussion on Oscar worthy performances and if Heath Ledger would have won for the Dark Knight had he not passed away.
This leads to the Final HOTSEAT of the Year with BJ and a discussion on what song gets you all emotional. Which one is the one that catches you off guard every time and you start to get the feels deep in your gut.
And Finally the guys discuss BJ's cancer diagnosis and how he fought it and some of the stories and people he works with to this day trying to help and better during their fight against prostate cancer. All this and much more on this episode of The Q!
