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!
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!
Real Radio, Real Honest....its the Q!
Well another show dawns on us and we grab Tony Kozina and Jeremy Bailey to jump on the old train for our weekly jaunt through life. After being silent on it for over a week (cause unlike conservatives, we try to wait until more facts are in about a specific topic or "conspiracy") Mark and the boys dive head first into the NSA surveillence situation. Discussing the "who's and what's" of whether the PATRIOT ACT is a good or bad thing (The LIBS tried tellign Bush it was a bad thing when he passed it during his presidency)....and all the good stuff associated with you losing your freedoms of privacy to keep you a littel safer.
Then the gears get switched when the men bring on Grae Drake from Rotten Tomatoes to discuss the huge movies of the summer and what is not being talked about. Grae answers a past show question and they all discuss the validity of M. Night Shyamalan as a director...and Mark beats Grae to the punch and teaches her something about a certain movie she didn't even realize. Definitely a heads up for great stuff coming out.
And finally the lover doctors are back as Tony Kozina decides to help out a young lady with a relationship problem and they all realize really fast that Tony truly is the love doctor or extremely versed in horrible relationships.
Well the world is full of scumbags and douches and there are three men in the St. Louis, MO area ready to take on all of them. Two are your wonderful hosts Mark Bland and Justin Deming.... the other just happens to be KMOV (St. Louis CBS Affiliate) Investigative reporter Chris Nagus . The hometown kid made good, joins the guys to discuss coming up in the journalism business over the past decade and some of his more glorious trimphs of defeating idiots.
Then the guys are joined by none other than Jerome Cusson of PWPonderings.com to discuss the fallout of mass proportions on the heels of a twitter message goen crazy from ROH World Heavyweight Champ Jay Briscoe. It all comes from the Delaware House choosing to support Gay Marriage. Well lets say Mr. Briscoe went a little overboard in his thoughts and opinions. They talk in depth with Jerome to get to the bottom and figure out what should be done.
Plus there were three girls that were found in Cleveland this past week after 10 years of being kidnapped by some derranged men (Boston Bombing what???). They discuss the event and the unlikely hero Charles Ramsey.
Its time for the Q....taking talk radio and turning it up to 11! And don't miss the Overtime 121 cause it was the most hotly contested discussion that Mark and Justin ever get in to.
We are in the mood to teach you about giving to good causes and on this episode of The Q, Mark and Jeremy interview Aaron Rice of Lance's Brewery Tour to discuss his uncles Autism and their attempt to facilitate a tour and writing a book about Breweries of the World through their KickStarter campaign.
After that, Mark and Jeremy decide to discuss whether Guantanamo Bay prison should be shut down as the POTUS promised a few years back...this of course leads to a heated discussion and difference of opinion. Finally the guys are joined by Unhappy Bill who blesses them with his gay movie review of The Hobbit. Plus a little talk about upcoming summer movies. All this and so much more on the only midwestern show that is REAL RADIO, REAL HONEST! Its the Q!
On this special episode of the Q, Mark and Justin are blessed with the opportunity to talk to one of Mark's childhood heroes...Lou Ferrigno. Lou is most known for putting on the green paint and playing the Incredible Hulk on television. But he has also been in movies, King of Queens and many other projects.
But that is just the half of it. The show starts off with a horrible Pizza Hut/Taco Bell experience that Mark has and must share and then its on to talking about some pretty gruesome stuff when the topic gets swtiched to Faces of Death and weird videos on the internet. And they finish off with a healthy dose of good ole political talk when Mark brings up some questions that the conservatives have been wanting to ask the "leftist" (Lol) for quite sometime. So who better to take the reigns and discuss these finer points than these two guys.
Its time for the Q....REAL RADIO, REAL HONEST!

On this ruckus episode of The Q, Mark and Justin discuss the State of the Union Address and the hated (by Mark at least) REBUTTAL speeches that Marco Rubio gave the people of the USA for no apparent reason! Then it was on the crazy discussion about our country and where we are at when a coherent man goes on a rampage and starts to dispatch people cause life sucks....don't understand...well we are talking about Chris Dorner and his attempt to right the wrongs of the LAPD through a nasty manhunt. Mark has a very unique take on the situation and it is definitely an eye opener.
But after all that fun, Mark and Justin settle in to some questions where the discussion of stealing in their youths breaks into an all out nostalgia trip discussing video arcades, some of their favorite games and life in the past. Its a fun trip down memory lane that you definitely don't want to miss! Plus the show welcomes a new affiliate that is syndicating the boradcast....1420 AM WINI in Southern Illinois....welcome to the TEAM!
On this episode of the show Mark and Justin welcome professional wrestler Tony Kozina to the program to talk wrestling and life. The men discuss being on the road, the day to day grind of the sport and the background of where Tony originates from.
Then we jump to ROBB DAVIS, the CBG, who joins the guys to break down the 3 big sports stories of the week: Manti Te'o, Lance Armstrong and the passing of Stan Musial.
But then the show really kicks into high gear as Tony decides to break his silence on the controversial situation he was involved in regarding a show in the Midwest and the flack that he caught for his handling of it. This is a interview and discussion that NO ONE should miss and Tony chooses The Q to be the place to break that long awaited silence.
Real RADIO, Real HONEST! Its the Q!
HE'S BACKKKKKKKK!!!!!!! Mark's former MMA co-host and always controversial individual Andy Echele jumps in for Justin and fireworks eventually ensue. First off the guys make a run to the sports side of the world to catch up with the CBG (cracker behind the glass) Robb Davis to discuss Alabama winning the BCS Championship game, Hockey making its triumphant return (blah!) and the snubbing of great Baseball players in regards to the Hall of Fame 2013. Then Mark and Andy jump into their old forms to talk a little MMA and the current status of it in 2013, mind you Andy ain't having it DANA WHITE. After all that settles, Andy and Mark graciously discuss the Pussification of the USA via gun laws and everything that Andy can find to throw at the idea. Also the two gents break down some listener emails where a question regarding weird or horrifying happenings from the past jogs Andy's memory on a very graphic situation a "cop friend" once told him about. Its a story to not be missed.
So all that and much more awaits you on the next episode of THE Q....Taking talk radio and turning it up to 11!
Mike Parsons and Robb Davis decide to join Mark for this shortened (due to compromise) final episode of 2012. The guys look back on the year including the death of Whitney Houston, Bounty Gate, face eating zombies in Florida and school shootings in CT. Also, let us not forget that it was also the the first year of Mark and Mike being a part of the Too Heavy to Skydive fantasy podcast league. Mark finally releases his feelings on beating out two other podcasts (hopefully they won't try in 2013 or the same results might ensue). And finally, the guys pick their story of the year for you all to remember. So take a trip with them back down memory lane as THE Q breaks down 2012!
