Fake outrage is the thing on the interwebz today and unfortunately Mark, Bobby, Lucy and Dan deal with it a lot on the Q. In fact if it weren't for fake outrage from the political spectrum, the chances of the Q being successful are slim to none. But it exists and Mark has had it up to here with it on social media, the web and in the media. Mark discusses how there is a constant stream of it and how this played into the current situation in Ferguson, with ISIS and many other aspects of life in 2014.
Also on the show, an actress from the movie Django Unchained, Daniele Watts, was acosted by the police in outside a hollywood soundstage and once again the video went viral of the interaction with the police. But thats not the only one...a Fire Fighter from Oakland was also involved in a officer called situation that made the news and it was stated that it was "racially motivated". These two incidents have audio and video the team breaks down on the show to discuss whether the current rash of "against the police" feelings are justified. Are the police out of control or is it just a situation of fake outrage playing into the heads of people since the Ferguson situation.
Finally Producer Bobby and Mark bring up a movie they recently watched called "Gods Not Dead". Mark, Dan and Lucy discuss with Bobby the virtues of Christian based movies. This leads to a much deeper and longer discussion about the virtues of Religion in 2014 and where some of the stories come from within the bible and then it takes a turn for the serious. Mark decides to present a somewhat controversial view from a religious aspect in regards to some of the bigger stories of the year. This leads to very in depth talk about religious values and how religion should view certain things based off the general beliefs taught in church. Definitely a interesting thing to hear and very thought provoking.

She's back!!!!! Lucy Mendez of Dynamo Pro Wrestling and Resistance Pro Wrestling is back on the Q and Mark Bland has an issue with her. Lucy is the valet for a wrestler in STL named Ricky Cruz and Mark is in the middle of being at odds with this "piece of sh-t" (according to Mark).
On this weeks rants, Mark is taking it personal that the Hobby Lobby situation went down the way it did because it seems pretty obivous that the fix was in. Do you believe it was a good situation or not, listen and find out where you stand when its over. Plus Dan Walsh decides to speak to our growing asian audience with his "chinglish" and its becoming quite the strongest marketing to this new area that we have ever done.
Producer Bobby brings in a list of RADARONLINES the most controversial music videos of ALL TIME. The team breaks down the nuiansances of the artists and the videos. So who do you think made the list: Madonna, Nelly, R. Kelly or maybe even Michael Jackson? Sit back and enjoy as the guys and lady discuss this very interesting list. Are you with Bjork or against her might be the question of the year.
Finally there is letters from the listeners. Mark asks Lucy and the team what urban legend scares them the most. Some very interesting answers come out. And then there is OVERTIME after the main show. Dan expands on his urban legend answer, a few letters from the listeners and everyone chimes in on the Katy Perry/JOyful Noise lawsuit....we play the two songs back to back and you tell us if there is justifiable cause for a lawsuit.

On this episode of the Q, you gotta strap in (on) cause we are gonna get sexual in nature. Professional counselor and sex therapist Lindsay Walden joins the guys for a romp through the world of mental disorders, sexual orientation and a little fun.
Walden is originally from Louisiana but has setup shop in the St. Louis area with her website and practice, Lindsaywalden.com . Lindsay discusses with Mark, Dan and Producer Bobby about the different names for sexual orientation and how valid they are in our culture today.
Also, the guys discuss the situation in Philadelphia where a Ku Klux Clan member is stripped of his neighborhood watch title because of his affiliation with the nefarious group as a Grand Dragon. This sends Mark and Dan on a discussion of whether the US military veteran deserved the decision and how he would react to a counselling session with Lindsay Walden. Hillarity ensues and Lindsay gets to the crux of his "issues".
Also Mark discusses the way police and public pools choose how and who they want to reprimand versus the common rules that they are supposed to play by on a day to day basis. And a major discussion of peanut allergies and their over the top application to everything now is really just a bunch of BS.
Finally in Overtime, Lindsay decides (upon his request), to give our Dan Walsh a little analysis of his problems with women and whether they are superficial or not. Download and hear what she says.

Another week and another amazing show for all the Q fans out there. And trust us, we don't hold back in the least on this episode of the Q.
Mark, Dan and Bobby start off dicussing a little sports, but mostly a list of 10 stereotypes that people from Missouri apply to. Well this sends Mark and Dan off on their soapbox to discuss the stupidity of many hoosier Missouri people and their need to push that hoosier on others around them.
From there the shows really starts to pick up cause the guys are joined by World War 2 veteran and paratrooper James "Jim" Martin (pictured above). The 93 year old joins the guys to discuss what his beliefs on todays USA are, as well as his background in the military and what it was like during the second World War. Jim doesn't pull any punches and lets the guys know that this country has become "pussified" in his opinion and within a few years will become a weakling in the super powers worldwide. Jim also discusses how tough his wife was when pregnant and that is a story you just do not want to miss. An amazing interview for the ages awaits.
Finally, the guys touch on Rush Limbaugh and discuss how Glenn Beck has decided to let everyone know that Liberals were right about the Iraw War. But not before Dan Walsh, Iraq war veteran himself, defends the Iraq War and the soldiers that were over there/are over there against the change in opinion that Mr. Beck has presented. Does Dan present a strong anough case to make you think it was good/bad? Find out by checking out this episode of The Q!
Plus....Overtime, Casey Kasem and a little Game On/Game Off!

The guys are back in full forma after taking time off for Producer Bobby to have a baby and Mark to take a much needed vacation.
They also start back with a bang by adding a new home station, 1380 The X in St. Louis as their base of operations. And new times for the show. 1380= 1-3pm CST (Sundays) and 1420= 9-11am CST (Saturdays). Plus they are joined on this little by none other than their favorite 5 ft tall man with 15 ft tall words, Charles "TalkofSTL" Anderson.
First the guys decide to recap something that happened since the hiatus, the Roller Coaster Race 5k. Even though Bobby and Mark touched on it, Dan Walsh never got his say and it doesn't take much time for him to hit his stride regarding it.
Then the guys are joined by inventor Dan Nietzel from Fighting Chance Solutions. He is a working middle school teacher that doesn't like the fear of gun fire on a daily basis and decided to do some thing about it. So he created "The Sleeve" which is a manual metal sleeving system to go over door arms in class rooms, or any room, and quickly dead bolt a door from being entered. The guys jump on and talk with Dan about his career and the invention that could save thousands of lives some day.
Finally the guys discuss the infamous Bowe Bergdahl case from the past few weeks. The former military man is part of a 1 for 5 trade with the Taliban just to get him out of POW status....But the world of conservatives is up in arms because they claim that Bergdahl, and so do some of his military crew, is anti-USA and a known flake when it comes to situations like this. They all claim he deserted his post and is working with the enemy...so we break it down with our military mind Dan Walsh and get to the truth (or whatever that might look like).
All this an much more on the THE Q.....Real Radio, Real Honest!
