Producer Bobby makes his return to catch up and discuss all that is right and wrong with the world.  Mark is immediately set to making the record straight regarding some things he said in the previous show because many angry conservatives (its always just angry conservatives) were mad he didn't detail the SCOTUS situation regarding the 2000 election out enough for their liking.  Not that what he said was incorrect, it just seemed incorrect without the extra detailing...yet Mark is an honorable person so he brings it to the table to discuss and apologize.

Then TRIFORCE JOHNSON is back to talk ESports and a sort of revolution taking place currently. Triforce discusses the current situation with players and teams getting tons of money thrown into a major mainstream video gaming attempt to take Esports and make it a major player in the sports world.  This comes on the heels of the #1 Street Fighter player in the world taking a a hardcore loss to a rapper by the name of Lupe Fiasco.  Fiasco winning the match he shouldn't have won has TriForce taken aback quite a bit and OPENL CHALLENGES LUPE FIASCO to Street Fighter match! Also he talks about Daigo and what he thinks happened in that match.

All this and OVERTIME available on this episode of the Q.

Antonin Scalia has passed away and the candidates and the conservatives are just besides themselves with fury and anger over Obama possibly appointing a successor.

Mark is joined on the jaunt to discuss this issue with none other than former Q co-host and visitor Justin Deming!  Justin also has a couple choice words for the conservatives of america that have decided to become a obstacle for the Leader of the Free World. Mark and Justin discuss the death, the conspiracies and finally the layout of what this means.  Remember the 2000 Election and the need for the Supreme Court to step in and decide that Bush would be the president?  Well that couldn't happen this year and the Republican Senate leaders have gone out of their way to explain that they will not allow Barack Obama to do the job he was elected for and pick a new replacement for Scalia.  

This is a politics heavy episode as we are starting to see the primaries shake out and now with the successor needing to be chosen, this episode of the Q is very important for you to listen to.

Producer Bobby is back and chocked full of NFL talk since the SuperBowl just happened.  But lets not get ahead of ourselves.

First up is Phillip Andrew Morton, the director of Spanish Lake, a documentary on Netflix about White flight and re-zoning in a blighted area of St. Louis County that used to be a typical area for people to raise their families in. But after the Pruett-Igoe housing projects was closed, those people that were displaced found themsleves in Spanish Lake, MO and the dichotomy of area changed.  Some say for the worse. Crime increased and Real Estate agents came in to make money off fear.  All of this as well as how Ferguson changed the view/or didn't, is discussed between Mark and Mr. Morton.

Then its back to the old grind with Bobby coming in to discuss some antics and decisions by Super Bowl players prior to the big game.  Also, Mark breaks down a list of the Best Oscar winners and who should have won those years instead! It's a solid epsiode of the Q and there is much much more beyond what you see here. Enjoy
