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!

A much welcome surprise joins the Q today when Deyemofo (Justin Deming) decides to show up and play radio host with us.  And what a great show to be a part of...so much in store!

First up is Nick Bryant joining us to discuss his co-authored book, Confessions of a DC Madam. His Co-Author Henry Vinson was the head of high powered and connected gay liason service which was the front for the government to get info to blakcmail people. In the book many notable individuals play a part in this cover-up and amazing story.  Mark and Justin throw Nick for a loop when Mark brings up he doesn't feel there is value in blackmailing people with the homosexual card anymore....this leads to discussion about the value of people and power players in 2015 Washington DC.

Then our periscope becomes more offline than online when Sally Periscope calls in to discuss our opinions on the Donald Trump and the 2016 presidential situation as it lines up today. Mark explains just how out of touch the caller is with their belief that Trump will win the nomination and how disconnected the conservative people are to understanding the general malaise of the country at this point.

Finally the guys tackle pro sports and discuss the fact that the Cardinals got booed at the AllStar Game and that Pete Rose was given then good ole welcome back to the fold by MLB.  All in all a very entertaining show and you will be happy you listened.

For the first time in a while, HD Reeves steps back into the fold and onto the Q as our esteemed guest.  The comedian brings his strong wit and comedy but he ain't prepared for the ranting that Mark goes on. And all done live once again for the Periscope on Twitter an worldwide.

Mark recieves a letter from someone chastizing him for talking about his Twitter verification and how he thinks he's "Hot Sh-t" now talking about it on the radio show.  Mark decides to put everyone on point with the help of Producer Bobby and HD, and he lets the masses know that he is better than them (he kids...or does he).  And, this individual who calls Mark out is a Podcaster....not a broadcaster, which just opens back up that can of worms that has been discussed on the show before.

Next up, Mark decides to broach the subject of body odor with two heavy set males and discuss the finer points of grooming when you are a bigger person. This leads to the national story of Jared Fogle of Subway Sandwich fame getting his house raided by FBI on the heals of a potential child pornography charge.   The guys discuss the seriousness of the charges and whether they believe that Jared could do it at all. HD is merciless in his attack of the subway spokesman.

Finally, HD came in with questions. On the backside of recent stories in the media about flags and racial tension, HD wants to know where Mark and Bobby stand on the issues and give his two cents about them too.  Mark brings up his grief poaching argument and the need for minorities to gravitate towards making a bigger deal out of past transgressions than the people that were affected in past did.

All this and much much more on this episode of the Q!

Well Justin Deyemofo Deming makes his long return to the Q and graces us with his witty charm and neverending puns.  Plus the show is being broadcast on Periscope.

Mark and Bobby start off discussing Donald Trumps recent comments about minorities and Mexicans. This prompted Univision and NBC to cut ties with the mouthy republican presidential candidate and the guys discuss if this was a good idea for those compaines to do that.  But then everything goes to hell live on the show when Bobby is unprepared for techincal difficulties and things stop working correctly.

Then Mark and Bobby discuss 4th of July and the Q sponsor Crazy Cheap Fireworks.  They both get nostalgic talking about their favorite fireworks to shoot off and then the man that everyone loves entered the room....Deyemofo!

Justin comes back on for the forst time since the 200th episode to vent about conservatives that hate gay marriage and to let everyone know he hates the confederate flag.  Then Bobby decides to pull a card that hasn't been pulled in months on the show and goes for a atheism discussion.  The guys decide the value of atheism versus other belief systems and Bobby tangles toe to toe with Justin on how Atheism and Religion have similar principles.

Finally, Justin is thrown on the Kenny Kind HotSeat to discuss his soon to be departure from the St. Louis area for his new home in one of the Original 13 Colonies (Eg. Rhode Island).  He talks about what he's going to miss and what he looks forward to in his new chapter of life.  But not before he makes Mark discuss his recent FIRING from Dyanmo Pro Wrestling as Executive director.
