Comedian and friend of the show Jake Ashlock stops by for the first time in almost 2 years. Jake gets a special time to drop by since it is Republican National Convention time and we love talking politics on the Q. First up is a situation where Melania Trump, the Donald's wife, decided to step on stage at the RNC and give a speech. The only problem is that it wasn't completely her speech. Pieces of the speech were ripped from Michelle Obama's 2008 DNC speech. Of course this doesn't go over well with anyone because it seems that Donald, his party and their attitude is all about walking all over people, taking what they want and being generally dismissive and disrespectful people. Mark and Jake discuss.
Then the guy jump into Mark's past wrestling life to discuss a new lawsuit the WWE is being hit with by former wrestlers and employees claiming that the WWE allowed them to be put in harms way regarding CTE and other brain injuries. But whose really in the wrong here and whose being thrown under the bus?
Producer Bobby is back and the game sweeping the nation is Pokemon Go. It has kids and adults tripping over themsleves all over the world to get to places to Catch them All. But whats the hype and some crazy things have happened because of the game...we will discuss.
Also, more chaos in the streets of the USA where retalliation seems to be the dinenr for some. Officers killed in Dallas and Baton Rouge on the heels of the two police shootings in Baton Rouge and Minneapolis. Is it a Summer thing? Mike Brown happened in Summer and now these happen in the summer too. But don't people get shot at other times of the year. Also, what is the end game for everyone in this situation. We discuss and in depth about this and much more.
This episode deals with two types of problems in the world. First up is the first world problem of Mark and Little Caesars. Mark handles some marketing on the side for fireworks tents in the St. Louis area and had a great idea for a viral video. Unfortunately, Little Caesars (the hopeful ally) didn't want to play along and their employee's made some very bad decisions when dealing with Mark...so Mark tells guest Justin "Deyemofo" Deming the premise and you tell us if you side with Mark or Little Caesars in this.
And Second, its been a turbulent week in the US of A with police getting shot at and two men getting killed by police officers. All of this re-ups the Black Lives Matters discussion that came about from good ole St. Louis, MO a few years back with the Mike Brown/Ferguson situation. We discuss the new one.
Well the people of Britain and the UK spoke and decided to LEAVE the European Union. They termed it "Brexit" and eveidently everyone in the USA immediately became a professional speaker on the topic. The internet was inundated with opinions about Brexit and whether it was smart or not. And everyone includes the guy at the Donut shop that makes donuts for a living, the guy that changes oil for a living and even the receptionist at the lawyers office became a expert in the situation. This pissed off Mark again and he goes on a rant discussing Brexit, what it means for the US and World...as well as his opinions on the people that do that. But not to be outspoken alone, DJ BIG SNOW (aka...Prodcuer Bobby) joins to discuss and give his two cents.
