Producer Bobby is off for the week, so what was a three-way turns into a two way but that other member is a doozy. Andy Echele, former co-host, joins the show to talk with Mark about whats been up in his life.
This leads to Mark and Andy breaking down the St. Louis area for the people listening around the country and throughout the world. Mark brings up the fact that STL people tend to be riddled with bad attitude and the guys try to figure out where this attitude comes from. Is it upbringing? Maybe? Is it the water? Maybe?
Then the two tackle a special story out of the STL area about a mother and father sticking up for their kid at a local park...by pulling a gun. Mark poses this to Andy to find out who was in the wrong in his mind. Was the mother being overly protective or just out right lawless?
Finally, the discussion turns to Kim Davis. Kim Davis, the Kentucky County Court clerk who has persistently refused to issue gay marriage licenses, has asked the Supreme Court to hear her case. Mark and Andy break down the ill will she is throwing out there and figure if she is a worthless idiot or making a strong case for others. This in a weird way leads to a discussion about Motorcycle Riding clubs and their backgrounds, as well as their ranking system amongst each other.
In Overtime, Andy brings up Umar Lee and his mild dislike for people within the STL community in the past year taking sides on racial inequality. They discuss the value of racial inequality in the area and a recent story regarding neighbors not getting along because of loud dogs (go figure in STL).

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!
