On the heels of their big 4:20 show, Jonathan May and Mark Bland welcome Comedian and co-conspirator Jon Maddy to the show. Jon a welcomed guest from the past gets a real taste of what being around Mark and Jonathan May is like. And by the looks on his face, it was interesting to say the least.
First up the guys discuss Robert Kraft and his need to get hot prostitutes to so sexual things for him. Mark ask's if guys like Kraft are too Famous and well known, to the point that their fame overshadows their misdeeds. This leads to the craziest thing Mark has ever heard come out of Jonathan's mouth, "Olympus has Fallen is a great film". Mark argues that nothing about it is good and Maddy plays referee to the situation. Mark even feels so horribly about the movie that he confuses it with another movie claiming the sequel had different people...he was wrong it did not.
Then the show everyone is talking about is Game of Thrones. Mark and May decide to discuss the first episode of the new season with the blessing of Maddy. SPOILERS FOR THE SHOW are in this episode so I would recommend skipping 5-7 minutes of you don't want it ruined for you.
Finally, Mark brings up a discussion with Jonathan and Jon about a conversation discussing why other cultures than Black culture are not allowed to say the N-word. Mark argues that it's kept alive by Black culture using it so frequently in slang and if they stopped the word would probably be viewed much more negatively as whole. Jonathan argues the right to say it because history dictates the culture taking the word back and not allowing others to use it. the convo gets deep and intense...take a listen and see where they finally come to a conclusion.
http://traffic.libsyn.com/theqnow/Episode_255_-_St._Maddys_Day.mp3Oh its the 255th ep. of the show and there are so many things going on, its impossible to figure them all out.
First up, Marco Rubio has dropped out of the Primaries (for now) and is watiing till the convention comes along to see who walks out of the convention as the Republican nominee.
Next up, St. Louis Comedian Jon Maddy joins to wax poetic about the STL comedy scene. He and Mark discuss how actors like the Rock and Johhny Knoxville should be viewed within the world of Stand up comedy. They also talk about Louis CK and others within the business and whether they have comedy writers working with them at this point to help them stay on top.
Next the guys breakdown how this election will go down and how there is need for the GOP to unify or else they will split the vote and walk Hillary right into the presidency. A lot of this is from the fact that people think Trump is polarizing and originally thought that Obama was the "most polarizing person of all time". Mark feels this stems from the super sensitive nature and emotional inability of many conservative voters in the country.
Fianlly, Mark and Jon do the HOT SEAT for Jon and they do a little Over Time where they take on the famous Moral Dilemmas.
