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!
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.
With Great Power, does come responsibility that some people are just not willing to take up. Such is a case with a nurse in California who lets a patient die because company policy and red tape (read as CONTRACTS) do not allow them to perform such task. Mark and Justing start the show off with a BANG discussing the rights and wrongs of this horrible situation. But then, COMIC CON is coming to St. Louis and The Q was incredibly excited to grab Jerry Milani to discuss some of the finer aspects of comic conventions and what to expect from the St. Louis one coming March 22-24th.
We also welcome Robb Davis to talk a little sports, but are overcome to find out how interested he was in discussing the death of William Moody (aka Paul Bearer) from the WWE. When we forgot to mention it in the sports segment, Robb goes out of his way to call back in and have us report on the famed wrestling managers career. Which, of course, leads to a discussion about favorite moments in Wrestling and everything else.
Plus don't forget that there is a little extra content in the OVERTIME, exclusive to the web show!
Well we made it to EPISODE 100 and we had a lot of fun things planned for the show....but then LIFE happened. A killer went into the elementary school in Newtown, CT and killed 26 people including 20 kindergarteners. I was a heart wrenching thing to see and hear about as it unfolded and by virtue of Mark's position on KYRO 1280am, it was necessary to put all the fanfare behind themselves and try to help a nation as it coped with unbelievable loss. Listen as camedian Matt Conty and Justin Deming join Mark in a very entertaining and interesting discussion surrounding the events that took place. If you have any questions or want to add your point of view, goto www.facebook.com/theqnow and post there.
On this episode of the Q, Mark has been trying for 2 years to get anyone from Breitbart.com on his show to talk politics. Well finally, one of them (and at this point, still the only one) decided to grace the Q listners with their style...That man is KURT SCHLICHTER. Mr. Schlichter is a noted contributor to the conservative think tank called Breitbart.com and Townhall.com. He is also a soon to be three time author and 2 time #1 Amazon.com best seller. And this show doesn't disappoint. Mark, Justin and Kurt go back and forth on many subjects. But did our guys get Mr. Schlichter to say that he took something in a moderate stance (GASP!). You'll have to listen to find out. And by the way....HE'S NOT REASONABLE!
Also, Robb Davis jumps on the show to talk about sports including Manny Pacquiao, the Dodgers and much more. All this for the low low price of FREE! It's the Q, Real Radio...Real Honest!
