On this episode of the Q, we walk back into the pro-wrestling world for a episode and it doesn't disappoint. First up, Lucy Mendez the Queen of Sass, comes back on to join in for the pro-wrestling talk. But not to be outdone, fresh off his ROH Debut, midwest Pro-Wrestler Dirty Jake Dirden joins us live in studio to discuss: being a Dynamo Pro Champion, What wrestling in ROH was like and his life before Wrestling.
Then we kick the show into high gear discussing wrestling with our guest, former WWE 3 Time Tag Team Champion, Trevor Murdoch.

Find out what happened!
Finally Vaughn Johnson of Philly.com wrestling taps into us to discuss his recent attendance of WWE 2015 Royal Rumble in Philadelphia. Producer Bobby, Lucy, Mark and Jake break down their opinion of the best PPV of the year for the company (next to Wrestlemania) and where the eventual road leads to Wrestlemania 31 in just a few months.

On this Episode of the Q, Peter Van Lunen of STL E-Z Ticket joins the boys to discuss what he's been up to and how things have changed since the last appearance on the program in 2011.
First up is Mark's undying hatred for the stupidity of most conservative voters in the USA. Mark decides that he will take his anger out on the PBS TV show Caillou. But, no, truthfully Mark turns his attention to Local ST. LOUIS radio hosts that have decided to talk about politics without having a clue what they are talking about. Much less that, they don't even know the names of the world leaders as they crap all over the President of the United States and promote how awesome they think Putin is in comparison to Obama. Dan tries to interject and explain that these men are right to have the feelings they have and that turns into DAN WALSH vs. MARK BLAND live on the show.
Next Bobby is unhappy with the way people treat St. Louis, and he decides to let the people of the Gateway to the West have a piece of his mind! Then the guys switch gears and get into talking about moral dilemmas. They are those situations you are put into in life where you have to choose between two extremely difficult decisions that are predicated on your morals and ideals. And Mark brought in some doozies for the show. In fact the first one is so heavy that PRODUCER BOBBY will probably be at odds with his wife for many years, since Bobby threw her under the bus. Listen and watch a marriage implode in one sentence.
Finally the guys do a little GAME ON/GAME OFF on the live show and Bobby brings in a homerun for his game on. And we finish off strong with some OVERTIME and a new HATE MAIL you have to hear to believe. All this and much more on the Q!

On this episode of the show, Mark, Bobby and Dan Walsh ask the question...Do you crossfit? Unbeknownst to Mark, there is a world of crossfit and attitude associated with the exercising style that Mark and Bobby are not hip to....until Dan Walsh opens their eyes to the entire background of the sport.
This comes on the heels of Mark doing some housekeeping at the front of the show to discuss some social media issues he was having as well discussing the fact that the Benghazi conspiracy should be finished after their last attempt was flushed out by a special senate committee that came back and said it was simply miscommunication and a lack of forethought from the everyone involved...there was no STAND DOWN call ever attempted. On top of that Mark, Dan and Producer Bobby discuss the constant that St. Louis is always making the top "don't be on this list ever" lists and why this keeps happening.
Finally Dan opens up about his military service when the guys start talking about guns in reference to the story of a retired sheriff out of Tampa that killed a man in a movie theater cause the victim threw popcorn at him. The sheriff is claiming the Stand Your Ground defense and the guys discuss whether that is proper that the law be used in this matter as well as the whole pro-gun/anti-gun national debate.

On this AMAZING episode of the Q, the St. Louis Radio Morning show legend DC Chymes decides to stop by and discuss the "Steve and DC: Morning Show" in its hey day! From top to bottom, including some behind the scenes stuff no one has talked about or ever discussed on the radio.

If you haven't heard the show in a while and wondered what happened to those guys after almost 2 decades of hosting mornings in STL, then this is the interview you don't wanna miss.
Then Mark decides, with Justin Deming's urging, to rant about whats on his mind. Well the RFT 2013 Best AM radio personality award is on his mind and he doesn't understand how he got shafted. He congratulates Frank O. Pinion on wining the award (cause he is honestly a big fan), but lets the STL newspaper know just how wrong they were.
Finally former NWA World Champion, Scrap Iron Adam Pearce joins the guys on the show to discuss his new DVD "7 Levels of Hate"! The Documentary chronicles the 7 match series across the USA between Adam and Colt Cabana in the world of independent wrestling. The back story to how the events were set up, some of the executives that were involved and all the politics that go in to creating professional wrestling. It is a great documentary and Mark/Justin discuss the documentary and some of the less talked about things behind the scenes of Adam Pearces career, including the day he sent the NWA belt back to the executives.
This is the Q! Real Radio, Real Honest!
We've made it to 115 of these and the train just keeps barreling through life. On this episode Justin is taking a little vacation and Mark is joined by Tony Kozina and Jeremy Bailey to ponder those things which we don't speak of when Jeremy lets on early that he's having a weird day. This leads to a discussion about baptism and religion....and DRIVER ETTIQUETTE? After that, the conversation turns to the STL Comic Con that just came to town and Mark gives his review.
But the goodness doesn't end there, since the guys take on the #1 topic of the week in regards to the Supreme Court deciding on the Gay Marriage policy. This leads to a discussion about conservatives that hate the entire idea of gay marriage.

HE'S BACKKKKKKKK!!!!!!! Mark's former MMA co-host and always controversial individual Andy Echele jumps in for Justin and fireworks eventually ensue. First off the guys make a run to the sports side of the world to catch up with the CBG (cracker behind the glass) Robb Davis to discuss Alabama winning the BCS Championship game, Hockey making its triumphant return (blah!) and the snubbing of great Baseball players in regards to the Hall of Fame 2013. Then Mark and Andy jump into their old forms to talk a little MMA and the current status of it in 2013, mind you Andy ain't having it DANA WHITE. After all that settles, Andy and Mark graciously discuss the Pussification of the USA via gun laws and everything that Andy can find to throw at the idea. Also the two gents break down some listener emails where a question regarding weird or horrifying happenings from the past jogs Andy's memory on a very graphic situation a "cop friend" once told him about. Its a story to not be missed.

After the most exciting start to any Q show in the history of the program, Mark and Justin delve into a discussion, or Mark's observation, that Barack Obama falls into that so tender and lofty position of HISTORICAL FIGURE (Conservative heads are spinning on that one). Also, Justin (being the new NEWS guy for the show)brings up the death of Larry Hagman and starts a discussion of the most watched TV programs in history. Whats on the list, listen to find out.

Also, a big announcement for the show. Mark is trying out a new co-host in the form of Justin Deming . Although he was under the weather, Justin brings another feel of moderate/liberal love to the show that can not be described in words. Throughout the show, Mark and Justin discuss the horrible Hostess situation and then Mark rants on Unions for a bit (mod/lib...weird). Also the impeachment talk has started and the two wax on the ideas of why the Regressives would even argue this as a point. This is the Q and we are taking talk radio and turning it to 11!
