Anarchy was a dear and poignant wrestling organization based just outside of St. Louis, MO.  The fanbase was like no other and probably won't be duplicated anytime soon.  But as so many things in life, a good thing must come to an end....but it's not totally the end.  Pierre Abernathy and Evan Gelistico come back on the show to discuss their folding of St. Louis Anarchy Wrestling and the beginning of their new venture NWL (aka National Wrassling League).

Pierre and Evan discuss their favorite memories with the league they took over a few years ago, while also explaining the benefits and hype around the new wrestling league based out of KC/STL.  Mark and the guys also focus on the last event they held recently and all the feelings and emotions that come with putting your heart into something, watching it grow up and become something else.  The guys also discuss wrestling as a business and how it should be handled at all times and the ups and downs of indie wrestling.

Also. Mark still throws in some politics discussing the Trump Transition more and if the extreme attitutdes of some of the picks will bode well being implemented in such a fast fashion.

Mark Bland and Jason Kull discuss the transition and some of the aura around the picks and moves that Donald Trump, the President-Elect, is making.  A ton of work goes into making good choices and his choices seem very controversial in the long idealistic stances that many of them have.  It's blatantly obvious that Trump fell into this presidency aloof and is also trying to fit in as much as he can before the inauguration.

Next Mark switches up the topic and reads some questions from the listeners. One is a truly moral dilemma in the fact that you have to make a long term decision on an extreme gray area regarding Aids. Plus the two gentlemen also discuss Trumps recent "60 Minutes" episode where he backpedalled on almost every major campaign promise he made.

Well the jokes and folly that is the candidate for President, Donald Tump, took a turn for the real with his VICTORY in the 2016 presidential election.  His off color remarks and personality that is bloviating, antagonistic, in your face, direct, brazenly honest and everything else....wasn't enough to make people go "you shouldn't run my country."  In fact, it presented the opposite result. A majority of the people said "I like that Guy! i like him so much that I want him to run the country for 4 years".  

Mark is joined on this historic episode by Jason Kull and Andy Echele.  Andy the more conservative and Jason, the more democratic, weigh in with Mark on what this election means for the country.  But Mark explains in great detail the three things that lead to Hillary's defeat.  These aren't easy to swallow thoughts for most liberals and moderates, but it's literally what happened and gave Donald Trump the win.

Jason Kull and Mark Bland are back with some audio goodness for you ears.  First up is the reason why Hell Froze Over....The Chicago Cubs won the WORLD SERIES! As a St. Louis based show, we do enjoy and like our Cardinals, but their rivals winning the World Series is definitely a sore point for many.  Kull is a huge Cubs fan and he is here to discuss the win and his personal feelings.

Next up, The Election 2016....Either its getting ready to happen, is happening or just ended recently when you are listening to this and we probably have a new president elect.  This is the last attempt to discuss this election season and the two candidates.  Has this helped Trump at all....Is Clinton sitting pretty.  It's all over the place and we try to make some sense of it.

He's BACK and this time he's stumping for the people.  It's been a wild week in the realm of politics and no better than Curtis Wylde to jump back on the show and discuss all the goods and bads of this electoral season.  

Curtis is running for state rep in Missouri and he jumps on the Q to discuss his platform and his opponent (not much). He weighs in on the Trump/Clinton campaigns and these emails, plus Mark and him break down the Clinton Foundation situation a little.  Should you vote for Trump? Should you vote for Clinton?  With a week left until the voting tsunami happens, the two make their case.

Finally Curtis is hype on conspiracy theories and Mark has something up his alley.  A list of conspiracy theories that were supposed to come true in 2016.  Mark and  Curtis discuss these theories and whether they hold any weight at all or not.  A fun episode of the show for you.
