Gary Weed guests with Mark Bland and Jason Kull as another shooting takes place in a HS in Florida. It seems unfortunate for the guest whose booked because gun talk and laws isn't a fun thing to discuss. Neither is dead children because others don't want their "rights" trampled on.
First up, the guys focus on the Olympics and Mark decides that there needs to be a change in the broadcast team for ice skating. Then it's right into the Parkland Florida shooting. Why can't we change gun laws? How many times does Mark have to come on his show and address stupidity from the conservatives as they dance and try to downplay the real issue with people in the country...they are becoming emboldened to not care about others anymore because of attitudes like Trump.
Finally Gary hits the HOTSEAT, created for the Q 6 years ago, to test his meddle on random questions that helps learn a little more about our guest.
Tony Cabral makes his triumphant return to the Q after a bit of a hiatus. Living in Chicago doesn't afford him the opportunity to be on the greatest show ever...but we make do.
First up, Mark is dealing with a ton of censoring from the social media lately because of his show regarding black and white culture and the movie Black Panther. He has weened it down to specific people trying to censor him directly cause they are quite angry about the message getting out which doesn't play to these peoples narratives. Mark and Tony discuss what happened and why it seems over the top.
Mark and Tony also discuss the ability to "swat" people who you are mad at from far away and how this is becoming a very dangerous trend in the USA. This leads into a discussion about allegiance to the USA and allegiance to Trump. Where is the allegiance to our country and not your political party?
All this and more available on this episode of the Q.
The new Black Panther movie seems to be getting a lot of attention from the Black Community. This has brought up certain feelings within the white community and they have not been quiet about this. So Mark Bland, being the devils advocate he is, decides to bring in comedian Jonathan May to discuss Black culture, racism and this heightened care for a movie that hasn't even been released yet.
Oh but the train don't stop there....This discussion goes into racism and the true backbone that black people think White people don't respect or care about them in 2018.
Joined by Jason kull, this is an exciting episode of the Q that really delves deep into the manners and ideals of our cultures and how they should truly be viewed in our current times. Ain't no hiding in this episode...all the words and feelings are put on the table.
Jason Kull and Andy Echele jump in to discuss many a topic on this show. The guys start out discussing the State of the Union address by President Trump and the argument that Democrats didn't clap. Well Mark points out this is quite normal and there are tons of examples from the past where other Presidents got shut down with the clap.
Then the story moves to Tom Brady and the Patriots going to their next Superbowl. Mark is a fan and Andy not so much. But his success begs the question, is he the greatest sports athlete of all time? Possibly...listen to the discussion and you make your decision.
Finally Mark had a run in with a Flat Earth believer recently and discusses the points brought to his attention and whether anyone else in the country believes the Flat Earth things. This leads to discussion about conspiracy and the theories people hold. Plus a reminder from Mark about conspiracy theorist.
