Its edging on Memorial Day 2015 and Mark/Bobby decide to lighten up on the politics for a bit.  Not much really going on in it and Mark gets side tracked when Producer Bobby starts to break down his family tree and teach Mark about his heritage.  Bobby hasn't had the easiest life as Mark and everyone will come to find out.  And all of this because he explained he had a birthday party for his daughter that Mark and his family were in attendance at. 

Then Mark decides to breakdown his own personal car story that he has been dealing with for the past week.  Mark bought a part, thought he didn't need it and then ended up needing more.  Typical trial and error type car fix that goes awry fast.  Of course this brings up some famour car stories from Bobby and Mark, including some stuff with lemon laws.

Finally one of our co-hosts made a decision regarding his career and it bring about some discussion of things Mark and Bobby gave up when they were forced too.  Basically unpleasant decisions and how they affected their lives.

Audio issues aside, we are rolling forward with the Q each week! On this epsiode of the show, Mark and Producer Bobby discuss the current situation of the shows syndication and why they are having problems finding a new home in STL. 

From there the two radio veterans delve into the idea behind the United States and the education system as it stands after a story about a college student suing the school cause her testing situation was a little unfair...in her opinion.  This of course leads to a much deeper discussion about schooling and standardized testing.  Whay are so many other countries ahead of us.

Then a story about an oil company out of control as they try to sweeten land deals with teen prostitutes.  Multiple times! Eventually the topic turns to the skyline of major cities in the United States and why other countries have some amazing city skylines and how we are behind the times in so many things in the USA. 

 

Finally DUBSMASH is the new app everyone is infatuated with and Bobby is becoming a Dub smash superstar.  After that discussion, the two sit down for a game called most awesomest thing in the universe...its a website that compares two things and you decide which is more awesome.  Find out the matchups and play along at home to find out what wins!

Ever been in a fight?  Ever thought, hey I could do this and win this fight?  Well that's exactly what happened when an off duty police officer got into a back alley fight with another guy and decided to get a mouth full.  This story leads to a huge discussion between Mark and Producer Bobby about what is and is not fair in a fight between men.  Which side will you stand on in this discussion.

Next the two host didn't get a chance to explain out their experience at this years Roller Coaster Race.  So Mark and Bobby talk about the return of the Polar Vortex Dan Walsh as well as some unique aspects of the event itself.  Mark just can't understand how two people running can hear each other through their music and headphones, but refused/couldn't hear Mark asking them rudimentary questions while they were running.  This plus all the fun stories of the event.

Finally Mark and Bobby go back to the topic of technology and how it can help people in 2015.  The discussion is based off what Mark and Bobby would do as CO-PRESIDENTS of the USA.  Find out all the fun things they would implement as the leaders of the free world and how far they would go to make your living experience in the USA the best it possibly could be! 

Plus....Dorian Johnson, the Ferguson Police department and many other topics.

It's been a wild week in the world and Mark and Bobby are here to break it all down as best they can for you. 

First off, if you didn't notice the city of Baltimore is going nuts and rioting over the death of Freddie Grey, a young man that had his neck broke and spine fractured by police as he was being arrested.  The Mayor of the city if saying things on tape and then turning around and stating it didn't happen...but it did.  Plus you have people starting fires and mothers beating their kids butts on national TV trying to stop them from rioting.  It is an amazing thing to watch and Mark & Bobby put their opinions out there about the entire fiasco and where they see it going from here.

Next it seems someone is always trying to kill off the status quo and car companies are no different. The Big Boys have decided to envoke DMCA rules cause your car has a computer and Bobby thinks this is ridiculous.  Mark plays devils advocate (as only he can) and discusses if making it illegal to tinker/work on your car will fly in the long run.

Finally, Mark has a letter from a listen but not before he plays a game of Sex Statistics he found earlier on the interwebz. It gets deep and interesting as Bobby is grilled about the average times Women have had sex in their lives vs. Men...and many other questions.  Play along as you listen and see where you sex knowledge lies.
