Well Vitaly has been in the country since December and its time for him and his wife to make that fateful trip back to the USSR here in a week. But before he goes, Mark decides to bring him onto the show one more time to talk about Donald Trump, The Brussel's Attacks and the value of living in 2016. But he forced us to have Proucer Bobby on the show too if he came on...begrudgingly we said OK.
First up is a fun filled rant from Mark. Being a father and family man, Mark understands the value of a Family LockerRoom at a local pool. Evidently the people at the new complex in a local STL municipality do not appreciate the value of said family sized things and spent all their money not making proper accomodations in Mark's opinion.
Next up Mark discusses the Brussels Attack and how he feels that it might have been deterred if two things happen:
1. focus on why they are choosing these french speaking areas to attack
2. Start being more judgmental of the people in their country and start using a little profiling to tighten up the ranks. Not negative stereotyping, but focusing on similarities that lead to dangerous situations.
Finally Mark, Bobby and Vitaly discuss the Donald Trump phenomenon and how our society in the USA kinda created this vitriolic rheotric and attitude. Explaining why Trump seems to reasonate with the base of voters that love him. And also discussing the potential for the convention to be contested.

Well it was a rough week for the St. Louis area as they lost their NFL franchise, but fret not....Mark decided it was time to bring an old friend of the show back from obscurity. Vitaly jumped on a plane in mother Russia and cruised over here to the US of A to sit down with Mark and Producer Bobby to discuss the Stan Kroenke NFL decision. Mark discusses how this type of decision making applies to the Donald Trump lovers of the world and how he doesn't think it should be so painful for the STL fans. Producer Bobby has a differing opinion and the two discuss.
Then the Bundy guys in Oregon are just unravelling and the people around the situation ain't helping. They are allowing them too much freedom to do what they want. Mark discusses this mentality and Vitaly chimes in with what he thinks Putin would do in the same situation.
Finally the guys take some letters from the listeners in Overtime and some questions live on the air. And Sean Penn got a chance to interview El Chapo and it lead to his capture by the Mexican Government. Now Chapo is not happy with the Penn and the guys discuss the value of his threats.

The Q is a worldwide leader in opinionated talk/discussion and it is proven again when we welcome a fan of the show and guest from Russia, Vitaly (and his wife) to the show to discuss the differences in Russia and the USA. Vitaly is quite timid at first hoping to not sway the boat and say anything that might make Putin hate him....but before you know it, he calms down and spits that beautiful Russian Language.
And there is irregularity afoot when Mark walks in on Bobby doing food prep for his Rollin Around Egg Rolls and realizes that he puts onions in the Chicken Teryaki??? No one puts onions in Chicken Teriyaki except Producer Bobby! This becomes a running theme on the show as Mark asks Vitaly to back him up....but it doesn't go well.
Finally, its been a while, but the guys are ready for the next Tournament of Pop Culture. This time around they break down 32 GUY MOVIES to find the absolute best Guy movie of all time. Could it br Rocky, Predator, Goonies, Godfather or one of the others...we don't know, but we guarantee if you listen you won't turn it off as you see why the tournament breaks down the way it does. Eventually the guys crown the best guy movie and its a weird twist!
