Ahh yes, the spirit is in the air for the Christmas season of 2017. It has been a long year and this final show of 2017 brings light to that fact. Mark Bland is joined by Jason Kull and Andy Echele to discuss the big things that we as a country had to deal with in Trump's MERICA this year.
First up the guys discuss Doug Jones beating out Republican Roy Moore which was easily the biggest political race of the entire year. Trump had put his name behind a few different people and they all lost. What does this mean for the 2018 elections and how will this affect the way the republican party is viewed?
Finally the guys discuss about Christmas traditions within their house and discuss a few movies from the Christmas season. This leads into the discuss regarding the biggest issue of the year that was overturned by the FCC. The guys jump in and discuss all the good and potentially bad things about net neutrality. Did the guys agree with the FCC or are they against it...download and listen!
Politics, politics, politics...The show get's the complaint all the time from the fans because they hammer on the same topics all the time. NOT THIS TIME! Mark took the cue and decided to bring in famed St. Louis Chef Rob Connoley of St. Louis' own Squatters Cafe/Bulrush to come in and discuss the culinary arts. They discuss how he made the jump from his previous job into being a chef, plus what living in New Orleans and New Mexico taught him about life and food. Rob is also quite the politically motivated individual and this brings around a conversation about Roy Moore, the embattled Alabama senate hopeful, who is dealing with allegations about dating and molesting underage girls back in his earlier career. But that doesn't stop President Donald Trump from sticking his foot in his mouth again and deciding to team up with Moore to try and help him ensure victory. Should the President do this? What can Rob infuse with Salmon to make a delicious winter treat taste amazing? All this and more is discussed on the new Q!
One of the best things about poker is the flop and the cards that get turned over during the game. Well this Trump situation seems to have a lot of people around it that could change everything at every turn. Michael Flynn is definitely one of those people and he is currently set to turn on Trump and explain all the Russia stuff he has knowledge of. we don't know how damning the evidence could be but he was one of the highest ranking officials at the White House and was privy to many convo's and plans for the Trump presidency. So Jason Kull decides to jump in and discuss the Tweets from Trump, the Michael Flynn debacle and everything flying through the political atmosphere of today. All this and much more on this episode of The Q!

Andy Echele and Jason Kull join to discuss the Lavar Ball, LiAngelo Ball, UCLA and Donald Trump story. Lavar Ball is not happy about Trump stating he helped get his kid out of China...even though Trump probably did help somewhat. Jason thinks one way about the events and Andy has a completely different stance on what was and should have been done. Listen to find out what happens.
Also, Mark decides to dust off the old "F My Life" website and look through some of the raunchier things on it. In what becomes one of the best ending to a show all year, Mark, Andy and Jason breka down the F MY LIFE stories and figure out who really has a bad life or who deserved the comeuppance.
Whether holding up guns at campaign rally's or just touching a 14 year old girl inappropriately, we all know that the republicans and conservatives are going to defend Roy Moore from Alabama. Why? Well that seems to be the issues we are having but it's still happening.
Jason Kull joins this week to discuss the Roy Moore situation and how we got here. Also discussed is the first of a few of Donald Trump's trips to asia. Trips where he goes out of his way to trash an asian nation to others. A Trip where he chooses to try and joke about climate change and the US stance on it. A trip where he hob nobbed and hung out with dignitaries while getting absolutely nothing accomplished to better the USA. Oh don't forget the speech where he basically told all the press in every country that whatever country he was currently in was screwing the USA on trade.
Plus Mark discusses the hit TV show Stranger Things...find out if you agree with him.
