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.
All this and much more available on this episode of the award nominated radio show out of St. Louis MO.....The Q!

Oh the holidays are on us for 2013 and its time for us to start getting together and eating. Well nothing makes you feel more holiday oriented than desserts...and especially PIES! Well Mark has the top ten holiday pies of all time and he, along with Tony Kozina and Matt Krueger (and of course Producer Bobby) are going to break down the list and man does it get a little heated!
Also, with two special guests you know that Mark is gonna talk some politics and without fail him and Matt start into each other. Mark discusses the in ability of certain members of society to handle themselves in the new world of social media since they keep taking things and putting them on the internet. Case in point is this weeks "round table rant" as the men discuss the waitress in NY/NJ that lied about a couple not tipping her and leaving a note. How much more often is this happening and what should be our stance as a society is discussed. Plus the USA is not the most powerful nation anymore and Mark tries explaining to Matt how we should not try and force our will upon on other nations that don't respect or care about us anyway.
Finally there is a few more stories, Letters from the Listeners and GAME ON/GAME OFF (a new section of the show that is catching a lot of ears). So tune in and enjoy all the fun plus some extra OVERTIME after the main show where MATT and TONY play Dr. Love's (2 for the price of 1).
Matthew Krueger decides to jump in and work out a great show with Mark and Producer Bobby as the men talk about Politics to start off. Matt wonders why LEFT and RIGHT wing are designated that way as Mark tries to help him understand. This leads to discussion about a disagreement on Facebook that Mark and Matt had regarding politics and the situation with everyone throwing a fit about the new Miss America being of Indian descent.
Then with Halloween being the next major holiday to pop up for our nation, it seems as some people got a stick up their butts about a Walmart Halloween prop that seems to emulate animal cruelty....what is our country coming to! Mark and Matt then Wax poetic about their time working together at a Spirit Halloween store and how Matt would scare the bejezus out of people while dressed as Freddy!
Mark then gets serious for bit discussing some new rules that senator Diane Feinstein is trying put in place regarding journalism and media in the US. Its called the Media Shield Law and its purpose is to set the parameters in some sort of fashion regarding real journalism and hobbyist. Something Mark has talked about on his show many times, but never to the extent that this law is about to be imposed. Everyone has an opinion on this and its interesting to hear to say the least.
Then in a final topic swing, everyone tries to tackle the new California minimum wage decision to raise the minimum wage to the highest in the USA. All having come from various backgrounds in life, everyone has their own ideas of whether this is a good or bad idea. And then of course it's time for Letters and Questions from the Listeners.
Its time for the Q....taking talk radio and turning it up to 11!
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!
Where MSNBC, CNN and many others have failed, the Q delivers. The man that got outted to the national public in the middle of a Missouri Rodeo ring, joins the guys live on this edition of the Q. Tuffy Gessling of the famous rodeo incident with the Obama mask, jumps onto the The Q to answer the tough questions surrounding that day and what/why it happened.
Anthony Cabral, Justin Deming and the return of "PrimeTIme with Mark and Tone" veteran intern Little Bobby jump on for a rollercoaster ride that includes a discussion on why Mark doesn't feel Conservatives should debate/discuss things with him. Also, Tone and Justin get into a great discussion about the decision to have Ben Affleck play Batman in the new "Batman vs. Superman" movie slated to come out in 2015. This leads to a discussion on reboots and whether they are good or bad for the industry and Mark can't seem to get over the name Lex Luger/Luthor.
Finally the guys get to look into some letters from the listeners regarding a babysitting job that might not be all its cracked up to be and a young man worried about dissappointing someone for his "first time". Needless to say, Justin seemed very knowledgable about said "first time" and discussed in a very detailed way what the young man should be looking forward to.
All this and much much more on the this episode of the Q. Real Radio....Real Honest!
Time for the Q and this week Mark is joined by writer and sportscaster Ron Clements who comes in a on whirlwind of a news week.
First up is the discussion nationally about the Rodeo at the Missouri State Fair where a rodeo clown decides to put on a Obama mask as the announcer prods the audience into "seeing the president get run over by a BULL!" Needless to say this delves the nation back into the somewhat racial debate of people not liking Obama cause of "some reasons". The men discuss and figure out where the line should have been drawn and whether this is worthy.
Then the two switch gears and start discussing the their favorite TV shows a their love affair with Breaking Bad now that the series is coming to a conclusion. Not giving up anything but heavily discussing the past seasons as well as some shows that the two should each check out including new NETFLIX only series.
Finally its time for a discussion about a man that finds himself is a horrible predicament when he mistake his house for another spot that might turn out bad. All this and much more on the newest episode of the Q!
Podcasters everywhere! On this return from hiatus, Mark invites the guys from Wheel Barrow Full of Dicks to come on his show and join the weekly jaunt into the world of current events and politics (though this episode is sparse on Poli-Sci). He also put the vibe out to Matt Krueger to jump in and the men were off on an exciting adventure.
Mike and Nappier from WFOD start off explaining that they love being in the presence of "THE" Mark Bland (making sure that he adds the "THE") but before long Mark tackles a piece of ranting that he has fondness for...Podcasting vs. Broadcasting . But the conversation takes a weird turn when Mark starts to rant on a food choice that a co-host of WFOD has made when going to Jack in the Box.
From there the men tackle another couple news stories including the severe beating a 13 yr old took at the hands of some kids in Florida and the bus driver just sat there. Also there is a update in the Meremec River Shooting case and the dunking canoers might not have been so docile as they let on they were in the original stories. Ramping up the arguement for self defense and property rights that much more.
Then it is on to the next Tournament of Pop Culture! This time around on the 16-team elimination tournament, the BEST SUSUPENSE MOVIE of ALL TIME is tackled. Who made the list and who got cut? And will one of the contestants chime in for a unprecidented 3rd TOPC win over the past 3 years. Its never been done and this is definitely a powerhouse of a suspense movie.

Taking talk radio and turning it up to 11! Its THE Q!
For the first time since their show together for the FOX affiliate in St. Louis, Mark, Matt K. and Andy E. are back together behind the microphone to take on the biggest stories (and kinda interesting ones) of the week.
With many a person working two jobs in the USA, the US Gov has decided to potentially raise the minimum wage. This has irritated the conservative businessmen of America and they are out in full force against the raise in pay. So our esteemed panel of hosts and guests will talk about the plan increase and what it means to all the hardworking people of the country.
Then, fresh off the heels of the Trayvon Martin case in Florida, a Missouri man decides to put property rights and defending yourself to the test as he shoots and kills a man for peeing on his property during a break on a float trip on the Meremec River. Was the man in his rights to defend his property or was this a case of mistaken machismo that went wrong. Two Conservatives and a Moderate/Liberal will discuss and break down all the angles for you.
Also, our favorite angry homosexual movie critic decides to bring the thunder on Pacific Rim and Warm Bodies. So where does Bill stand on these precious gems from Hollywood...tune in a listen to him take a couple shots at the works of art.
Well another show dawns on us and we grab Tony Kozina and Jeremy Bailey to jump on the old train for our weekly jaunt through life. After being silent on it for over a week (cause unlike conservatives, we try to wait until more facts are in about a specific topic or "conspiracy") Mark and the boys dive head first into the NSA surveillence situation. Discussing the "who's and what's" of whether the PATRIOT ACT is a good or bad thing (The LIBS tried tellign Bush it was a bad thing when he passed it during his presidency)....and all the good stuff associated with you losing your freedoms of privacy to keep you a littel safer.
Then the gears get switched when the men bring on Grae Drake from Rotten Tomatoes to discuss the huge movies of the summer and what is not being talked about. Grae answers a past show question and they all discuss the validity of M. Night Shyamalan as a director...and Mark beats Grae to the punch and teaches her something about a certain movie she didn't even realize. Definitely a heads up for great stuff coming out.
And finally the lover doctors are back as Tony Kozina decides to help out a young lady with a relationship problem and they all realize really fast that Tony truly is the love doctor or extremely versed in horrible relationships.
On this episode of The Q. Mark and Jeremy decide to fly the whole show by themselves discussing everything from what its like to be in the NAVY as well as the two guys horrible weeks. Car crashes and thunderstorms plagued the Midwest and these two were square in the middle of it as Tornadoes took out Mark's power and a wreck (without air bags deploying) almost took out Jeremy.
And the ranting doesn't stop there cause a Scripps National Spelling Bee champion was crowned and Mark doesn't like their introvert styles. Then it becomes a show about Hitlers when they talk about a Father of the Year candidate trying to get his custody rights back and a problem that JC Penny's is currently dealing with.
At this point Mark starts to take some Letters from the Listeners and one question in particular puts the show over the edge when Jeremy starts divulging a story from his military past. And a discussion regarding the recession puts Mark over the edge as he tries to explain how far we are from the economy being good again for the middle class and lower people.
