Well the business of media in the US has become quite the convoluted and dirty pool. With that comes the potential for miscommunication and things to show up in multiple places. After hearing a morning show in STL read some very similar (almost exact same wording and sentences) letters as Mark & Bobby presented 3 weeks earlier on this here show called the Q, the two decide to sit down and discuss the unwritten rules of radio/media and how you shouldn't do that.
Also, Aaron Hernandez, the former Patriot football player, has been brought up on a Life sentence for a murder he was involved with/did in 2013. This brings about a discussion of sports and some of the more interesting topics such as the famous Back to the Future 2 forecasting of Cubs vs. Miami in the World Series of 2015.
Finally Mark and Bobby are prompte by a tweet from Ricky Gervais to take on and discuss the world of Big Game hunting. Recently a female names Rebecca Francis posted some unflattering pics of her laying next to dead giraffes that she hunted. When it was brought to attention by Gervais in a tweet, it create a firestorm of controversy with Francis getting death threats and being ostracized by people in her own community and throughout the world. But the only thing getting publicity is the hate coming from animal activists towars Francis...there is another gun loving side to this that is now being equally as hateful and Mark illuminates that with this Discussion.

On this episode of The Q, Mark and Justin are phoning it in (literally) this week since they are not broadcasting live on the syndicated feed. And the first order of business is to discuss the new television show "The Bible" and how with the THOUSANDS of actors in hollywood and around the world, they were able to find the ONE guy that looked like POTUS Obama and cast him as SATAN in the Television show (claiming it was sheer coincidence).
Plus those companies are at it again and Mark points out that some of them are going to punish financially people that do not go along with wellness testing for insurance. Then the show gets into discussing the music business in 2013 and whether distribution in the early days comparable to today. Are we better off without the strong hand of major record labels running the business, or are we now left with the shell of a music business where its easy to get everything and there is no intrinsic value to the content any further.
Finally there is no overtime, so the boys decide to do the next round of the IO9 March TV Madness Tournament of SCi-Fi shows. We are into the 32 and the competition is getting a bit harder.
All this and much more on THE Q! Taking Talk Radio and turning it up to 11.
On this ruckus episode of The Q, Mark and Justin discuss the State of the Union Address and the hated (by Mark at least) REBUTTAL speeches that Marco Rubio gave the people of the USA for no apparent reason! Then it was on the crazy discussion about our country and where we are at when a coherent man goes on a rampage and starts to dispatch people cause life sucks....don't understand...well we are talking about Chris Dorner and his attempt to right the wrongs of the LAPD through a nasty manhunt. Mark has a very unique take on the situation and it is definitely an eye opener.
But after all that fun, Mark and Justin settle in to some questions where the discussion of stealing in their youths breaks into an all out nostalgia trip discussing video arcades, some of their favorite games and life in the past. Its a fun trip down memory lane that you definitely don't want to miss! Plus the show welcomes a new affiliate that is syndicating the boradcast....1420 AM WINI in Southern Illinois....welcome to the TEAM!
