It's been a wild week in the world and Mark and Bobby are here to break it all down as best they can for you.
First off, if you didn't notice the city of Baltimore is going nuts and rioting over the death of Freddie Grey, a young man that had his neck broke and spine fractured by police as he was being arrested. The Mayor of the city if saying things on tape and then turning around and stating it didn't happen...but it did. Plus you have people starting fires and mothers beating their kids butts on national TV trying to stop them from rioting. It is an amazing thing to watch and Mark & Bobby put their opinions out there about the entire fiasco and where they see it going from here.
Next it seems someone is always trying to kill off the status quo and car companies are no different. The Big Boys have decided to envoke DMCA rules cause your car has a computer and Bobby thinks this is ridiculous. Mark plays devils advocate (as only he can) and discusses if making it illegal to tinker/work on your car will fly in the long run.
Finally, Mark has a letter from a listen but not before he plays a game of Sex Statistics he found earlier on the interwebz. It gets deep and interesting as Bobby is grilled about the average times Women have had sex in their lives vs. Men...and many other questions. Play along as you listen and see where you sex knowledge lies.

It is a sad time in the city of St. Louis and specifically a small section of the county called Ferguson where a young man's run in with the Ferguson police turned into a national story. Mike Brown was supposedly gunned down, unarmed, by a police officer and it set off outrage and rioting in the normally quiet STL suburb. The Q hails from STL and Mark the host is very closely related to the area in question cause that is where he and producer Bobby grew up in a neighboring city. With all that said, it was obvious that Mark, Bobby and Lucy were going to have to discuss this issue at length.
First up, Mark put in a call and got former St. Louis City Police Chief DAN ISOM to join the guys on the show and discuss what it is like to stand at the podium and handle a situation of this magnitude. Dan and the cast discuss the case of Michael Borwn, where it leads and what the potential outcomes are. Also they dive into the underlying problems with the lack of information coming out and how the public is viewing the Police departments at this time and whether that viewpoint is a correct way to view them. Plus the guys talk about race relations and the area of town where this is going on. A very in depth discussion on the show and worth every minute.
Finally....Tyler Crandall came on the show to discuss his new found success with the popularity of his "North County Song". Tyler joins the team to talk about his upbringing in North County (the county where Ferguson in located during this situation), what he likes and doesn't and to play the song live accoustically. And he finds a way to make peace with Producer Bobby who is not happy and tell everyone a story that is painful to hear.
All this and much more on the Q....Real Radio, REAL HONEST! And don't forget overtime after the credits roll for some more fun.
*There is choppy audio in the first 20 minute segment. It is annoying but not impossible to listen to.
