It's always a pleasure when a new guest walks into the hallowed studios for the Q show. And this episode is special cause Jordan/Sam Lacey joins the show to partake in many discussions!
First up we talk with Sam about his background in wrestling and what he does currently for a living. Sam discusses being a part of the Carpenters union and how the company he works for came to be. Mark asks about politics and Sam's position in regards to where he stands in the world of it.
Mark then goes on a rant about doctors. It starts with his trip to the ENT and being levied an extra bill over the top of what he had already paid. Marks argument is whats the point of a co-pay if there is always going to be more money needed to be paid? Also, the way this was charged out was ridiculous in comparison to what services he actually had. Mark believes we have a country of shysters and frauds that are going out of their way to use medical billing as a back drop to gouge all of us. Mark and Sam discuss this in a deep manner.
Then Mark does an extended "Hotseat" with Sam. They talk about Star Wars and wierd feelings and ofcourse the haunted scary tunnel from our childhoods that we all dealt with at one point or another.
All this and some OVERTIME too. It's the Q, Real Radio, Real Honest!

First we had Evan Gelistico and now his Tag Partner Pierre Abernathy decides to sit down with Mark Bland and discuss the world around us.
Pierre breaks down how he got into wrestling and the people that he met along the way. Which eventually leads to his owning and running Anarchy Wrestling. It definitely was not a easy transition for the wrestler whose been performing for 10+ years, but a necessary move that tested him in ways he didn't realize it would.
Then Mark starts to discuss politics and the unbelievable staying power of Donald Trump. Pierre jumps in and discusses his beliefs on the Donald and whether he thinks there is value to him as a President or not. This Leads Mark to beg people across the great nation to not support or vote for Donald Trump.
Next up Mark and Pierre tackle the controversy that is Hulk Hogans junk. Well techinically it's not Terry's junk, cause he said that on the stand. Hulk Hogan is embroiled in a sex tape trial and recently brought up his theory on his penis and who it belongs to or not. Mark and Pierre ruin their childhoods through discussing this weird stance Mr. Bollea takes.
Finally Mark and Pierre discuss a little NBA basketball and Pierre makes a absolutely cruical mistake by choosing Michael Jordan as a better all around player than Lebron James. This leads to a discussion of how he can assume this. Also Pierre jumps on the HOT SEAT for a few questions and Evan Gelistico joins in Overtime while discussing Pierres unique Ghostbuster and TMNT movie/character theories.
Antonin Scalia has passed away and the candidates and the conservatives are just besides themselves with fury and anger over Obama possibly appointing a successor.
Mark is joined on the jaunt to discuss this issue with none other than former Q co-host and visitor Justin Deming! Justin also has a couple choice words for the conservatives of america that have decided to become a obstacle for the Leader of the Free World. Mark and Justin discuss the death, the conspiracies and finally the layout of what this means. Remember the 2000 Election and the need for the Supreme Court to step in and decide that Bush would be the president? Well that couldn't happen this year and the Republican Senate leaders have gone out of their way to explain that they will not allow Barack Obama to do the job he was elected for and pick a new replacement for Scalia.
This is a politics heavy episode as we are starting to see the primaries shake out and now with the successor needing to be chosen, this episode of the Q is very important for you to listen to.

Dj Gelner a well known STL lawyer/author jumps back on to the show to break down the arrogance and attitude of bicycle riders. Their constant need to cut people off, tell you that you are #1 and many other things that get under the skin of both Mark and DJ. This also leads to a discussion about people with the "Please Watch for Motorcycles" stickers on the back of their cars. All of them tend to have attitude that is misplaced especially considering the show down between a 2500 lb car and a 30 lbs bike.
Next up Mark and DJ break down the Democratic debate and talk about some of the highlights...but this brings Mark around to talk with DJ about who he's backing in the election and of course The Donald comes up. Mark takes it to DJ about Trump and why republicans tend to favor this man. DJ brings up Obama and some of his decisions versus the type that Trump could make. Will it be better for nation?

The Q is a worldwide leader in opinionated talk/discussion and it is proven again when we welcome a fan of the show and guest from Russia, Vitaly (and his wife) to the show to discuss the differences in Russia and the USA. Vitaly is quite timid at first hoping to not sway the boat and say anything that might make Putin hate him....but before you know it, he calms down and spits that beautiful Russian Language.
And there is irregularity afoot when Mark walks in on Bobby doing food prep for his Rollin Around Egg Rolls and realizes that he puts onions in the Chicken Teryaki??? No one puts onions in Chicken Teriyaki except Producer Bobby! This becomes a running theme on the show as Mark asks Vitaly to back him up....but it doesn't go well.
Finally, its been a while, but the guys are ready for the next Tournament of Pop Culture. This time around they break down 32 GUY MOVIES to find the absolute best Guy movie of all time. Could it br Rocky, Predator, Goonies, Godfather or one of the others...we don't know, but we guarantee if you listen you won't turn it off as you see why the tournament breaks down the way it does. Eventually the guys crown the best guy movie and its a weird twist!

First up is Nick Bryant joining us to discuss his co-authored book, Confessions of a DC Madam. His Co-Author Henry Vinson was the head of high powered and connected gay liason service which was the front for the government to get info to blakcmail people. In the book many notable individuals play a part in this cover-up and amazing story. Mark and Justin throw Nick for a loop when Mark brings up he doesn't feel there is value in blackmailing people with the homosexual card anymore....this leads to discussion about the value of people and power players in 2015 Washington DC.
Then our periscope becomes more offline than online when Sally Periscope calls in to discuss our opinions on the Donald Trump and the 2016 presidential situation as it lines up today. Mark explains just how out of touch the caller is with their belief that Trump will win the nomination and how disconnected the conservative people are to understanding the general malaise of the country at this point.
Finally the guys tackle pro sports and discuss the fact that the Cardinals got booed at the AllStar Game and that Pete Rose was given then good ole welcome back to the fold by MLB. All in all a very entertaining show and you will be happy you listened.

Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter and Sean Hannity....what do these people all have in common? Well according to this weeks episode they are all hardcore BlowHards. Mark Bland gets back to his moderate/liberal roots on this episode of the show by taking Limbaugh and his co-horts to task for attacking liberals and claiming they are siding with islam and extremists against the USA. The statement holds no merit and Mark and Bobby (who somewhat agrees with Limbaugh) discuss the value of what is being said and the people themselves stating it.
Also, Marks been holding on to a few letters from the listeners due to recent topics on the show. So he decides to get some out of the mail bag and the two hosts dig deep to help some deserving listeners with their personal and private issues.
Short episode, but still worth the price of admission. It's THE Q....Real Radio Real Honest!
