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!
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.

On this Episode of the show we have 1 1/2 hours fun to burn through. In the first half of the show, Mark is joined by Tony Cabral to talk about a father that is refusing to let his sick daughter go to Disneyland....find out why! Plus the two jump into movies and discussing the upcoming Wizard of Oz prequel!
Then it switches gears to the second half where Mark is joined by Fred Slow of Too Heavy to Skydive, Travis Cook "Americas Evil Genius" and the one and only Professional Wrestling SUPERFAN "MATTERIFIC". And things get off to a BANG when Mark, Travis and Matterific start discussing the President Obama speech about Small Business! Mark and Matt claim that its all about money and not about America, Travis agrees but says its about America too. But it gets deeper than that! Take a listen and let us know what you think via the comments section below or through email!
On this episode of the show, we get down and dirty with the political positions that Obama and Romney are going to argue about as they gather new votes for the upcoming elections later this year. But why sis we do this, well it was because Mark was joined by typical partner in crime Matt Krueger and young Tenacious Taryn D. Taryn is going to be voting for the first time this fall and the two wanted him to have a solid base for the decision he was making. But that is secondary to the show starting and ending with a bang! The gusy get right into the story about the internet video of the guy giving his daughters boyfriend an ultimatum that he can't refuse and the show ends with the favorite LETTERS FROM THE LISTENERS! All this and mush more await on this episode of the Q....extended for your pleasure!
Travis Cook stops by to talk with Mark about the re-election of Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, aside from all the protests that broke out in 2011. All that was fine and dandy, until Mark and Travis have a discussion off air and a news story that Mark reads sends Travis off his rocker! Plus Mark decides to talk about some of his Facebook posts in a new segment and of course they end on a high note talking about a Letter from the Listeners! And finally....two things: 1) I do not believe that conservatives are child molesters by trait! (to find out why, listen to the show). 2) Fred Slow from Too Heavy to Skydive is definitely gonna beat on this one!
On this episode of THE Q, Mark and guest Travis Cook decide to probe (pun intended) into a story about a man named Hunter that has a very interesting website called www.ISANYONEUP.com . The site tends to cater to jilted lovers and their NSFW pictures of there "ex's" so others can enjoy them. Mark and Travis discuss the legalities of this site and where it stands for people that are the victims. Also, Mark covers why his show tends to have a controversial feel even though it isn't and lets everyone know what level they need to be on mentally to enjoy the Q. And if that all isn't enough, Mark and Trav (they are cool like that now) do some listener emails and questions at the end of the show. GET YOUR FIX!
