Ever lost your marbles as a human being? Well the president of the USA has just done that.
Jonathan May and Gary Weed, join Mark Bland to discuss the 36 hour period where Trump went looney and will probably define the majority of his presidency.
First up, Donald Trump took the world this past week and let everyone know that he is indeed "The Chosen One" as he even looked up at heaven to drive the point home. But this was just one of the many things that happened in this 36 hour period. Trump also retweeted that he was the "King of the Jews" which a radio host called him on their show. Also Trump decided it was a good idea to pull out of the new gun restrictions and heightened background checks bill he was on top of...and he also decided to let all Jewish people know that any who vote liberal are disloyal to their god and bad people in general. So yeah, DONALD TRUMP LOST HIS MARBLES.
On top of that, MTV has decided that the success of Catfish determines that a new show in the same vein needs to happen. Do you know what "ghosting" is? Well the guys break it down and discuss their opinions that MTV is doing a show bringing back people who've been ghosted.
Finally a listener writes a letter explaining that he thinks there should be a secondary Olympics for people who want to use steroids. Like an "all inclusive" Olympics. Mark doesn't seem to have an issue, but it all gets lost in translation because Jonathan takes the position of the parent in life and breaks down why it's a bad idea.
Well things are getting back to normal around the Q show, Lucy and Producer Bobby are back and then all of a sudden, Hurricane Rai Rai blows in. Rai Evans from the Lifetime TV show BAPs jumps in to talk about the tragic decision by Lifetime to cancel the TV series. But now that the show is technically "off", she pulls off the proverbial gloves and discusses her dislike for certain members of the cast.
This leads to Mark and Rai Rai having a very brazen and direct discussion about the MTV Video awards and the horrible performance and song decision by Beyonce on her lifetime achievment award. Rai Rai becomes the ultimate defender of Beyonce and things definitely get heated in the Studios of 1380 in STL. Rai Rai goes on the offensive and decides to challenge Mark's music taste.
Then for the 3rd week in a row, the town of Ferguson, MO rears its ugly head on the show as Mark, Bobby, Lucy and Rai Rai discuss Rai's involvement down in the riot area during the hottest moments of the sitaution. It's alright though, they don't beat the horse to death and just talk about race issues. Mark goes on a rant about "citizen journalist" and people claiming to be "indie journalist" when they aren't.
Finally, the show calms down a bit but they do letters from the listeners and Mark reads another awesome hate mail sent to him because of show 182. All this and much more on the Q!

On this Episode of the Q, Peter Van Lunen of STL E-Z Ticket joins the boys to discuss what he's been up to and how things have changed since the last appearance on the program in 2011.
First up is Mark's undying hatred for the stupidity of most conservative voters in the USA. Mark decides that he will take his anger out on the PBS TV show Caillou. But, no, truthfully Mark turns his attention to Local ST. LOUIS radio hosts that have decided to talk about politics without having a clue what they are talking about. Much less that, they don't even know the names of the world leaders as they crap all over the President of the United States and promote how awesome they think Putin is in comparison to Obama. Dan tries to interject and explain that these men are right to have the feelings they have and that turns into DAN WALSH vs. MARK BLAND live on the show.
Next Bobby is unhappy with the way people treat St. Louis, and he decides to let the people of the Gateway to the West have a piece of his mind! Then the guys switch gears and get into talking about moral dilemmas. They are those situations you are put into in life where you have to choose between two extremely difficult decisions that are predicated on your morals and ideals. And Mark brought in some doozies for the show. In fact the first one is so heavy that PRODUCER BOBBY will probably be at odds with his wife for many years, since Bobby threw her under the bus. Listen and watch a marriage implode in one sentence.
Finally the guys do a little GAME ON/GAME OFF on the live show and Bobby brings in a homerun for his game on. And we finish off strong with some OVERTIME and a new HATE MAIL you have to hear to believe. All this and much more on the Q!

Corey discusses his background in marketing and eventually Mark and Dan (with Producer Bobby against it) present him with their new sister company to the Donut shop. Find out what they call it.
Mark also decides that he has had enough with Cecil Whittakers Pizzeria in the St. Louis area and throws the gauntlet down. Have you ever been hit with a delivery charge from one of these delivery companies for a restaraunt? You would think that they are giving the delivery charge to the driver, but NOPE....and Cecil Whittakers is brazen about explaining their delivery charge is completely a bonus charge the drivers don't touch. Listen in to find out the stance and what everyone else thinks.

Next up, the guys take some letters from the listeners and try to has through some of their more pressing issues. Things like: What if a neighbors fruit falls into my yard and I use it, do I have to ask their permission to have it? Or something like.....I got a girlfriend who is sure we are going to get pregnant and have a baby soon, she feels she deserves a mothers day gift, should I get her one? Think deep and hard about those and the other questions presented on the show.
Finally, Mark has decided to jump in feet first and discuss the value of country music in 2014. Find out what he is ranting about in regards to their constant need to sing about things in the most simplistic terms and from time periods they never lived in.
