School Shootings, Bombing Syria and Governors giving up their seats of power, it's all in a normal week for one Donald J. Trump and for the Q staff to dissect.
First up, Jason Kull and Producer Bobby slip back into the seats of producer and co-host to help Mark break down all the fun. But it's the school shooting that opens the eyes of Mark and the team to where they are eventually gonna go with the show. A Murder-Suicide takes the life of a teacher and 8 year old student in San Bernadino and this raises the the good ole 2nd Amendment question in the eyes of everyone on the show. Everyone but Bobby, which triggers the most morbid episode of the Q possible. Bobby brings up the validity of the school shootings before he breaks down the door of crazy things that happen on the internet. This leads to a discussion of death and suicides on the internet that are filmed and the guys discuss all of it.
After that, it's Super Syria time as the boys discuss our friend of the show, Donald J .Trump decided to throw down the proverbial gauntlet and let the world know that after he tells people in need they aren't welcome, he'll be the first to kill their eventual killers...but only after those people are already dead and can't benefit from Trump at all.
All this and much more on the Q!

Fake outrage is the thing on the interwebz today and unfortunately Mark, Bobby, Lucy and Dan deal with it a lot on the Q. In fact if it weren't for fake outrage from the political spectrum, the chances of the Q being successful are slim to none. But it exists and Mark has had it up to here with it on social media, the web and in the media. Mark discusses how there is a constant stream of it and how this played into the current situation in Ferguson, with ISIS and many other aspects of life in 2014.
Also on the show, an actress from the movie Django Unchained, Daniele Watts, was acosted by the police in outside a hollywood soundstage and once again the video went viral of the interaction with the police. But thats not the only one...a Fire Fighter from Oakland was also involved in a officer called situation that made the news and it was stated that it was "racially motivated". These two incidents have audio and video the team breaks down on the show to discuss whether the current rash of "against the police" feelings are justified. Are the police out of control or is it just a situation of fake outrage playing into the heads of people since the Ferguson situation.
Finally Producer Bobby and Mark bring up a movie they recently watched called "Gods Not Dead". Mark, Dan and Lucy discuss with Bobby the virtues of Christian based movies. This leads to a much deeper and longer discussion about the virtues of Religion in 2014 and where some of the stories come from within the bible and then it takes a turn for the serious. Mark decides to present a somewhat controversial view from a religious aspect in regards to some of the bigger stories of the year. This leads to very in depth talk about religious values and how religion should view certain things based off the general beliefs taught in church. Definitely a interesting thing to hear and very thought provoking.

So there is a group of terrorist in the world and they are letting themselves be known in grand fashion. They are known as Islamic State but the media calls them ISIS. They aren't taking prisoners and playing fair...they are playing for keeps. After beheading two journalist from the USA, the Q decideds to finally jump in and discuss this group and their reasons.
But the Q couldn't have this discussion without having someone of credible backing. And with that being said, the Polar Vortex Dan Walsh made his return after a month or two off to discuss being over in that part of the world and how ISIS should be viewed and what he thinks should be done.
And finally, after missing it on the last show, Mark decides to bring up the fact that Missouri has been ranked as one of the worst states to live in. Making the top 5, Mark, Lucy Mendez and Producer Bobby discuss why they think the state made the list this high. Specifically based off the attitude and actions of people in the St. Louis area as a whole. Then everyone breaksdown the 127 yr old lady from Meixco who is the oldest living person on earth. Amazing the things she has seen and lived through. The Q crew waxes the possible things.

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.

On this episode of the Q, you gotta strap in (on) cause we are gonna get sexual in nature. Professional counselor and sex therapist Lindsay Walden joins the guys for a romp through the world of mental disorders, sexual orientation and a little fun.
Walden is originally from Louisiana but has setup shop in the St. Louis area with her website and practice, Lindsaywalden.com . Lindsay discusses with Mark, Dan and Producer Bobby about the different names for sexual orientation and how valid they are in our culture today.
Also, the guys discuss the situation in Philadelphia where a Ku Klux Clan member is stripped of his neighborhood watch title because of his affiliation with the nefarious group as a Grand Dragon. This sends Mark and Dan on a discussion of whether the US military veteran deserved the decision and how he would react to a counselling session with Lindsay Walden. Hillarity ensues and Lindsay gets to the crux of his "issues".
Also Mark discusses the way police and public pools choose how and who they want to reprimand versus the common rules that they are supposed to play by on a day to day basis. And a major discussion of peanut allergies and their over the top application to everything now is really just a bunch of BS.
Finally in Overtime, Lindsay decides (upon his request), to give our Dan Walsh a little analysis of his problems with women and whether they are superficial or not. Download and hear what she says.

The guys are back in full forma after taking time off for Producer Bobby to have a baby and Mark to take a much needed vacation.
They also start back with a bang by adding a new home station, 1380 The X in St. Louis as their base of operations. And new times for the show. 1380= 1-3pm CST (Sundays) and 1420= 9-11am CST (Saturdays). Plus they are joined on this little by none other than their favorite 5 ft tall man with 15 ft tall words, Charles "TalkofSTL" Anderson.
First the guys decide to recap something that happened since the hiatus, the Roller Coaster Race 5k. Even though Bobby and Mark touched on it, Dan Walsh never got his say and it doesn't take much time for him to hit his stride regarding it.
Then the guys are joined by inventor Dan Nietzel from Fighting Chance Solutions. He is a working middle school teacher that doesn't like the fear of gun fire on a daily basis and decided to do some thing about it. So he created "The Sleeve" which is a manual metal sleeving system to go over door arms in class rooms, or any room, and quickly dead bolt a door from being entered. The guys jump on and talk with Dan about his career and the invention that could save thousands of lives some day.
Finally the guys discuss the infamous Bowe Bergdahl case from the past few weeks. The former military man is part of a 1 for 5 trade with the Taliban just to get him out of POW status....But the world of conservatives is up in arms because they claim that Bergdahl, and so do some of his military crew, is anti-USA and a known flake when it comes to situations like this. They all claim he deserted his post and is working with the enemy...so we break it down with our military mind Dan Walsh and get to the truth (or whatever that might look like).

Another week and another great episode of the Q is here for the pleasure of the world. And this weeks guest is no slouch when it comes to radio, being a former on air talent with the DC and the Family morning show...so welcome Jesse Barban.
This weeks show starts up on a down note with the news of WWE Ultimate Warrior, who was recently inducted in the WWE Hall of Fame, passing away in a very weird and unseen fashion. The guys discuss the history of the Ultimate Warrior. How he was influential to their careers in wrestling (Mark and Dan Walsh) and how eerie the final speech he gave on Monday Night Raw was in regards to the timing of his death.
Next the guys jump in and discuss the history of Jesse and his work in radio. Jesse worked with DC and the Family as an on air talent and has since taken a position with Apple.

Mark and Dan Walsh tear into the listener for being overly focused on the wrong things and how they play no part in the recovery in 2014. Next they discuss the decision of a foreign man to get a McDonald's receipt tattooed on his arm and whether this is a good/bad thing. Plus Bobby makes HUGE GUEST announcement for the next show.
