TLC has been taking the time out of their normal TV stylings the past few years to try some unique programming....well one of those programs is called The Next Great Baker and we welcomed St. Louis natives Al Watson and Lia Weber who are representing on the newest season of the show. They discuss what its like to film a reality show and our Dan Walsh gives great insight from his years on MTV's Road Rules and the Challenges. Plus they talk with the two about working with the cake boss himself, Buddy Valastro.
Then we switch gears a little bit, because finally our guy Corey of Strange Donuts decides to join us and talk about what its like to have a successful donut company that also garners national attention on TV. We find out where his love of donuts comes from, how he found his partners to build the business and some of the less than stellar attempts at companies prior to the donuts taking off. 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. Listen in to find out the stance and what everyone else thinks.
Finally a little bit of Dr. Dan on the main show and OVERTIME, when we decide to do a letter from the listener and discuss many other topics on this edition of the Q. Real RADIO, Real HONEST!

On this episode of the show, Mark Bland , Producer Bobby and Dan Walsh take on the mystery that is the missing Malaysian Flight 370. They discuss what might have been the cause of the flight going missing and before you know it they are discussing conspiracy theories and the origins of them. Why they come to fruition and some of the ideas the three guys guy's believe have led to the formulation and beliefs in the heads of the creators.
But then its back to reality and Mark is on the warpath to explain to people in this this world that they should focus on what they know best and not discuss things they are not up-to-date and researched on. Mark's basis for argument is that a lot of people are on social media discussing Russian and the Ukraine, yet they are completely blind to the backgrounds and reasons why these things are happening....BUT THAT DOESN'T STOP THEM FROM TALKING LIKE THEY ARE PART OF THE SITUATION DIRECTLY! Mark feels that people should only take stances on things they are well versed in information. What do the other guys feel about this and do you agree?

Next DC Chymes joins the crew to discuss a story that was released regarding a drug manufacturer that used ever excuse in the book to not help a sick child attain a medicine they control that could save his life.

Finally they talk about Jovan's career as a comic and some of the perils of being in the comedy business. Also, some discussions on questions that white people have for black people and vice versa. Throw in a smidge of Letters and questions from the listeners and you have yourself an action paced show. Sit back and enjoy the new episode of The Q!
Big Bobby jumps back into the co-hosting seat for another jaunt into the MOD/LIB (swing voter) political world. And boy do the guys have a little bit to talk about.
Seems as though Barack Obama wants to take some missiles, point them at Syria and launch. This all comes on the heels of Syria deciding to use sarin gas against their own people (allegedly). Obama clearly drew the red line a year ago and now he is implementing that aspect and being a man of his word (something the Conservatives hate). Mark and Bobby decide to take on the entire Syria discussion and flush out whether this is a good idea or not. Will it lead to potential World War with Russia chomping at the bit behind the scenes? We will have to see.
Also, Bill Delaney joins the guys to discuss the list of movies coming out this fall and the fact that one of Hollywood's greatest legends is deciding to quietly hang up saddle and retire from acting.
Also there are letters from the Listeners and a strange story regarding a man and his need to use feces while sorting things out with his significant other. Plus Mark and Bobby delve into a discussion about their children and things parents should and shouldn't focus on as they get bigger. Including a couple stories about the first time their children ever got hurt (accidentally of course).
Taking talk radio and turning it up to 11, this is the Q!
