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!
Podcasters everywhere! On this return from hiatus, Mark invites the guys from Wheel Barrow Full of Dicks to come on his show and join the weekly jaunt into the world of current events and politics (though this episode is sparse on Poli-Sci). He also put the vibe out to Matt Krueger to jump in and the men were off on an exciting adventure.
Mike and Nappier from WFOD start off explaining that they love being in the presence of "THE" Mark Bland (making sure that he adds the "THE") but before long Mark tackles a piece of ranting that he has fondness for...Podcasting vs. Broadcasting . But the conversation takes a weird turn when Mark starts to rant on a food choice that a co-host of WFOD has made when going to Jack in the Box.
From there the men tackle another couple news stories including the severe beating a 13 yr old took at the hands of some kids in Florida and the bus driver just sat there. Also there is a update in the Meremec River Shooting case and the dunking canoers might not have been so docile as they let on they were in the original stories. Ramping up the arguement for self defense and property rights that much more.
Then it is on to the next Tournament of Pop Culture! This time around on the 16-team elimination tournament, the BEST SUSUPENSE MOVIE of ALL TIME is tackled. Who made the list and who got cut? And will one of the contestants chime in for a unprecidented 3rd TOPC win over the past 3 years. Its never been done and this is definitely a powerhouse of a suspense movie. Find out if your favorite made the cut!
Taking talk radio and turning it up to 11! Its THE Q!
For the first time since their show together for the FOX affiliate in St. Louis, Mark, Matt K. and Andy E. are back together behind the microphone to take on the biggest stories (and kinda interesting ones) of the week.
With many a person working two jobs in the USA, the US Gov has decided to potentially raise the minimum wage. This has irritated the conservative businessmen of America and they are out in full force against the raise in pay. So our esteemed panel of hosts and guests will talk about the plan increase and what it means to all the hardworking people of the country.
Then, fresh off the heels of the Trayvon Martin case in Florida, a Missouri man decides to put property rights and defending yourself to the test as he shoots and kills a man for peeing on his property during a break on a float trip on the Meremec River. Was the man in his rights to defend his property or was this a case of mistaken machismo that went wrong. Two Conservatives and a Moderate/Liberal will discuss and break down all the angles for you.
Also, our favorite angry homosexual movie critic decides to bring the thunder on Pacific Rim and Warm Bodies. So where does Bill stand on these precious gems from Hollywood...tune in a listen to him take a couple shots at the works of art.
On this episode, the prodigal son, Matt Krueger returns from a long hiatus to jump in with Justin and Mark to talk about .....Pro-Wrestling???? Well I guess you can take the fan away from wrestling, but you can't take the wrestling out of the fan. This leads to Mark ranting about people that are on the internet all the time and think they have it all figured out (which they don't). This then leads to a discussion about how media, locally and nationally, only want to promote stories and information regarding people with bad pasts and nefarious associations.
Eventually the talk switches over to Paula Deen who has decided that black people should run around dressed like a slave wait staff from Django Unchained. The talk quickly derails into a thing about whether certain words in our society still have the same feeling and sting that they did many years ago. And what if the words we consider "deragatory" in our culture had a law change them to be okay to use. How would people react?
All this fun, plus a new game called "Who'd you rather hang with", some letters from the listeners and questions for the DOCTOR of LOVE to anwer outright. A very fast paced and fun show!
