On this Episode of the Q, Mark welcomes back Producer Bobby along with Gary Weed and Jason Kull to do a Round Table of topics.
First up, Mark has some questions regarding the Trump/Putin Summit in Helsinki and how these fine men view Trump as their President here in mid 2018. Does He fair well, or is all this fake news becoming too much to handle?
Also this brings Mark to one of his newest points...Trump has hurt his brand more than help it. How will people view Trump when the presidency is over? Will he get opportunities or will he fade into the past without much fanfare?
Eventually the name Maxine Waters comes up and Mark is not sure if Bobby knows who she is and or whether she has touched his life. But this should put to bed the notion that democrats tend to take advice from people like Nancy Pelosi and Maxine Waters.
Finally Bobby brings around the new game called "This or That" where he grills the panel to find out a little more about the guys.
Fun episode that you'll be listening to a lot!
Donald Trump recently went to the G20 and in our opinion did not represent our country as well as he could. Jason Kull joins Mark to discuss Ivanka sitting in on G20 meeting on behalf her dad, and his awkward and lonely vibe he gave off.
This leads to a report from an Australian journalist covering the G20 that reported on Trump in the most scathing way possible. The guys play the clip and proceed to discuss all the points and merits the journalist brings up in the video. From the vibe that world leaders are working around him, to their decision to just ignore him. All of this leading to what is now called the G19, not 20.
Finally Mark and Jason focus on the Donald Trump Jr. Saga regarding campaigning and meeting with Russia. He's stated a bunch of times that the Russia thing has been a Witch hunt until now. They have proof and DT Jr. is back pedaling a ton on this one. Will it seal the fate of Trump Sr....it will be discussed.

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!

Brittany Maynard is 29 years old and has a terminal brain disease. She has decided that on November 1, 2014 she will end her life in Oregon with a pill that is allowed to be taken in the state as a part of self euthanasia. No doctor can help her, but they are allowed to be present during the moment. Maynard moved her entire family from San Francisco up to Oregon to take advantage of the law that allows her to proceed with such a decision. Well on the heels of this situation, the discussion about people being allowed to take their own life as long as the decision is made by them of sound mind, is now back in the national spotlight and The Q crew takes it on directly. Where do you stand on people taking their own life? Listen and hear the emotional discussion that accompanies this story.
Also the team talks about Marks unbelievable WALMART trip that ended with him yelling at a store manager....listen and find out how badly (legitimately) a store employee stepped over the line of decency and couthe. Plus this leads to a discussion about other cast members bad experiences in places of business. See who has had it bad in the past!
Finally we get a visit from our favorite world leader (who also tends to be drunk) Vallory Putin [sic], Bobby has another game of "When was this" and the guys/lady discuss some of the urban legends and unsolved mysteries that have enthralled them over the years. And don't forget OverTime!

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!
