Another rousing week of Trump and the stupid was so high Mark couldn't bare to talk too much Trump and his first 100 days in office. Eventually Mark gets around to discussing it but not before his guest Dan Buffa, a known St. Louis sports writer and movie reviewer, jumps in to lighten the mood.
First up is discussions on the St. Louis Blues and the predictions of how deep into the playoffs these guys are gonna go. Then Mark gets into Dan's background and what other sports Dan enjoys...but outside of the USA.
Then Mark and Dan shift into Trump talk which leads into movie talk. Mark originally made a snide comment on Twitter to Dan trying to goad a discussion...Dan retorted and stated he would be willing to come on the Q and discuss movies. So now Dan is here and he's no slouch when it comes the the movie game. Mark tells Dan about this game regarding picking a movie from every year that you were alive. Well that doesn't last long and these two movie fans really get into discussing sequels and everything else about movies.
What happens when you bring Jason Kull and Brandon Travis together in a room??? Well you get this episode of the Q. The two guys join Mark to discuss the current situation with North Korea, but more from the point of view of Europe.
Currently France, one of the main tenants of European power, is in the middle of an hotly contested election....and....it's starting to look like another "Trump-esque" victor in Marie Le Pen is on her way to overall victory. What does this mean for the region and the United States regarding the new tone set? Well that all gets discussed.
Finally Mark and his guests take a letter from a listener regarding Mark's tendency to have tournaments of pop culture and put unlikely things against each other. A listen named John sends in his 4 Disaster movies and wants us to match em up. Find out what movies are on the list and see if you agree with our choices and eventual winner.

School Shootings, Bombing Syria and Governors giving up their seats of power, it's all in a normal week for one Donald J. Trump and for the Q staff to dissect.
First up, Jason Kull and Producer Bobby slip back into the seats of producer and co-host to help Mark break down all the fun. But it's the school shooting that opens the eyes of Mark and the team to where they are eventually gonna go with the show. A Murder-Suicide takes the life of a teacher and 8 year old student in San Bernadino and this raises the the good ole 2nd Amendment question in the eyes of everyone on the show. Everyone but Bobby, which triggers the most morbid episode of the Q possible. Bobby brings up the validity of the school shootings before he breaks down the door of crazy things that happen on the internet. This leads to a discussion of death and suicides on the internet that are filmed and the guys discuss all of it.
After that, it's Super Syria time as the boys discuss our friend of the show, Donald J .Trump decided to throw down the proverbial gauntlet and let the world know that after he tells people in need they aren't welcome, he'll be the first to kill their eventual killers...but only after those people are already dead and can't benefit from Trump at all.
All this and much more on the Q!

Paris was attacked. It was horrible and horrible people need to be punished for it. But there is more to it than that. Andy Echele joins again to discuss the Paris attacks, it's implications and everything surrounding it. Should we fear ISIS? This is a major question brought up in the show and discussed at length. Is Obama to blame for any of it? This is discussed in detail to.
This all leads to a focus on the Syrian refugees that seem to be a focal point of the hate at this point. Mark and Andy discuss if there is a need for the refugees in the USA. Also, should the US citizens view them in a worried way. Should this wave of terrorism be thrown on the souls of people fleeing Syria just looking for another place to live and not die.
Finally, Mark and Andy get down and dirty cause Mark has been seeing some memes regarding the country's lack of Veteran care in the way of their 50-60,000 homeless former military people. Mark has a serious problem with this cause these stats are being used to promote anti-Refugee vibes and nothing more. Mark finds his muse by reading a piece by Jim Wright (@stonekettle on twitter) regarding his views on this homeless veteran situation. Jim is a former military man himself and veteran.
All this and much more on this episode of the Q!

Its another swing around the old Pro-Wrestling game again for Mark and his guest Jovan Bibbs! The two men, along with producer Bobby, welcome Impact Wrestling Superstar AUSTIN ARIES to the Q to discuss his career inside and outside the ring. Discussing Austin's eventual plans after the wrestling business to hopefully break into the music business. Plus a little tug of war trying to get Austin to discuss potentially winning a title in another company and the unique answer he gives to that plight. Plus the men talk about their favorite tag teams growing up and memorable moments from their wrestling childhoods.
Then it is full stream ahead with The Q. Syria decides in a weird turn of events to just turn over Sarin gas weapons to Russia after a couple weeks of the USA explaining that they are thinking of a military strike. Then a discussion on a new show making some noise on the boob tube called "Under the Dome" and a chit chat about Jovan, Mark and Bobby's favorite TV shows ensues, including a show called Doomsday Preppers..
Mark and Jovan talk about playing in a charity basketball a few months back and how Mark completely dominated the competition (sigh). 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!
