Travis Cook, the Q resident Tea Party expert and extremist, joins the show to discuss the State of the Union. Ofcourse, Travis can't hold back and once again this leads to an egregious claim and extreme viewpoint shared by almost no one. But then again that is why they call him America's EVIL Genius....or maybe in this case just Evil.
Then Tim Padgett, the General Manager of the Midwest Professional Basketball Association, comes on the program to talk about thier new League and to find out that he shares a little bit of history out of Arkansas State University with Mark.
Finally DeflateGATE is the word of the week and Mark, Producer Bobby, Dan Walsh, Travis Cook and Tim Padgett discuss the scandal that is swirling around the 2015 Super Bowl. Are the New England Patriots cheaters or is this another situation getting blown out of proportion. Plus Padgett offers up a opportunity that Mark and the crew can't pass up. All this and much more on this episode of the Q.
He's BACK! Travis Cook and his ultra conservativeness decide to grace the Q with its presence once again. After months of being banned from the show for claiming he wants to hang the president from a tree.....he's shows back up to start where he left off.
First the guys.....well lets just say.... things quickly fall to bad as Mark and Travis start discussing his cheating attempts with Dynamo Pro to win the tag team titles. This eventually devolves into a yelling fit between Mark and Travis regarding his political positioning and his hatred for President Obama.
After a cool down period...Mark, producer Bobby, Dan Walsh and Travis get back into the swing of the show. The Olympics are going on and Mark wants to know if the winter or summer olympics is everyone's forte. This leads to some talk about what sports can be killed off from the events.
Next the topic of federal rights verse states right comes up regarding guns and an attempt at a law in Missouri to override federal laws regulating them. This starts off a discussion of whether states rights or federal rights came first and a little history lesson from Dan Walsh....booyah!
From there it is a hodge podge of conspiracy discussion (as it always is every time a conservative is allowed to talk) and current event stories to talk about amongst equals. Also a great round of GAME ON/GAME OFF with Travis Cook actually supplying one of the more interesting Game Off's we have ever had!
Finally a little Overtime where we have the best advice story we have ever read on air and the newest Tournament of Pop Culture: Best Will Ferrell Performance. A must listen to overtime if you are a fan of Will Ferrell.

It's been a hectic week in the good ole US of A and the social media/Internet is buzzing with the verdict of George Zimmerman in the death of Trayvon Martin. So what does Mark go and do? He brings in two of his more verbally astute guests to break down one of the most talk about trials in the past 20 years. First up is the FORMER MILITARY VETERAN (the joke never gets old) Jeremy Bailey to temper the blade of the next guest....Travis Cook. That's right!
Travis and Jeremy return for the first time together since their infamous Cook/Bailey debates. And Travis doesn't disappoint his Tea Party beliefs and backing regarding the trial of Zimmerman. The gentlemen discuss the ins and outs of the surrounding information and eventual NOT GUILTY verdict.
But why stop there, the state of Arizona has a nice little Solar Panel fiasco that has decided to rear its ugly head and it has Mark in a tizzy trying to figure out where this country is going when they allow people to save money, but when they save too much money, they start charging them again to offset the savings. Its capitalism at its worst and the discussion slowly transforms from that into Travis' discussion regarding his latest AEG episode called affectionately "SCREW THE POOR". Jeremy takes the bait and Travis/Jeremy begin a class war discussion for the history books.
Not a slow minute in this great episode of the show, plus all the typical favorite sections are here, albeit truncated for your listening pleasure. It's the Q...Real Radio, Real Honest!
Well the proverbial sh-t hit the fan this week as the Benghazi situation released some emails and they seemed...at first...to show a coverup of mass proportions. But it was bascially a scam by Regressives trying to hate on the POTUS. But then the game changed when the IRS decided to release information regarding their outright refusal to accept applications from conservative based groups. Self admission is a pain way to go, but they went there and so did Mark, Justin and Jeremy when they took on the discussion this epsidoe.
Next who better to join them and make his return to the show than the gloating and spotlight hungry Travis Cook. Travis comes on to explain how one conspiracy theory (they didn't even knew existed) makes them all valid.
Finally, Rolling Stone recently took a readers poll of the worst bands of the 1990's...and some surprising names showed up on the list. The guys discuss. Its the Q.....Real Radio, Real Honest!
LADIES AND GENTLEMAN...Lets get ready to Rumble! On this episode of the show, Jeremy Bailey and Travis Cook square off in the First of what will become a set of discussions about many debate-able topics. After going toe to toe online through social media, Mark's favorite Tea Party guy and military veteran will take on current events and topics with differing viewpoints. Travis had one condition that made Mark bite the bullet: I will leave immediately and storm out of the room if I am interrupted AT ALL. That's all. Well did it happen? Did Travis make it to the end of the debate or was this doomed from the start. Find out on this latest episode of The Q....real radio, real honest!
Mark and Justin are starting this weeks show off with the breakdown of the new budget plan proposed by the POTUS. Including raising the minimum wage to $9. All sound good and the guys discuss why Obama is so willing to work across the aisle since the way he was treated in the 2012 election by the vitriolic TEA PARTY and CONSERVATIVE members of Capitol Hill. This leads to discussion on the generational gap between the people that are hurting and the ones that have money. This leads to a letter from a listener about the whole "It takes a village mentality" that seems to be missing in 2013.
Then the discussion switches to new things that Mark Learned in the past week regarding everything from Mt. Everest to Mr. Rogers. And the two touch on the fact that Jeremy's challenge from Travis Cook was accepted.
Finally the show is rounded out by a discussion of Narcissism and Racism. The borderline vernacular people use to skirt their racist tendencies and where the line between a word that was once racist becomes desensitized to the population and becomes part of the common everyday speech.
Its time for THE Q....Taking talk radio and turning it up to 11!
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.
Also an interesting discussion about Internet policing and social media rules combined with law regarding emails rounds out the show.

Well the ELECTION 2012 is OVER! Butt Hurt Wednesday, as Mark promised, also came and went. But we wanted to really get a good look at the Conservatives during the post election time and we do not fail to deliver. Mark is joined by Drew Ishmael and Travis Cook to get their opinion on the conservative movement and where they think this country is going. But alas, the conversation quickly devolves into a discussion on how much race played a part. Mark explains a story where a radio host showed his true colors upon finding out Obama won and Mark & Drew take jabs back and forth at each other...but like men do....face to face. All this and Robb Davis joins us again for some sports talk. The Q....REAL RADIO, REAL HONEST!
