It is February and that means its time for our yearly jaunt into celebrating black culture and the things that make them unique. And no better a person to bring on the show to entertain and discuss cultural things with, other than Jonathan May. 

Back again for some thrilling discussion, first up the guys discuss the layout for the democrats and some of Mark's opinions on the current crop of people vying for that DNC nomination. Mark explains how strong the Obama presidency was and how that affected Trump. 

Then the guys switch gears to discussing how rapper G-Eazy put up a social media thing with him kissing on a black female rapper named Megan the Stallion....this set the internet off and many black females were pissed she did this, but also a few men. Mark discusses how black men in their culture always go for white women and they are chastised for it but not a lot...why is this different for Megan? This leads to discussing Black History Month.

Finally, The Purge is just a movie, but it seems that the mentality of this country is starting to go down that road. Mark and Jonathan discuss the black culture and how they view history versus other ways to view it. Your perspective is not the only one and it's not always the right one. Mark and Jonathan go back and forth discussing cultural differences and what we can do as people. What can we do? Listen and find out.

Gary Weed joins for this new episode of the Q. And the Impeachment is hitting full stride moving to the Senate for the Trial, and eventual closing statements for both sides. With them voting down the witnesses. it's obvious that the only way to potentially take Trump off the perch will be through the 2020 election. 

First up, Mark and Gary breakdown the horrific and unbelievable loss of Professional Basketball Player Kobe Bryant and his daughter, along with 7 other people in a helicopter in Los Angeles. Kobe was an inspiration to many and even our own Gary Weed has a relationship close to this tragedy. We discuss everything regarding this story and shocking twist of events in life.

Next up, The story related to Kobe regarding a news lady for MSNBC who is being lambasted over the fact that she stumbled over some words and inadvertently said something that sounded racist when talking about the breaking news of Kobe Bryants death. We discuss our cultures sensitivity at this point and how everyone is LOOKING for issues everyday.

Finally, Mark and Gary touch on the impeachment and where things are at. Currently, Mark thinks this has stepped outside of a political discussion and the impeachment has become a blood feud because Trump made it that way. "Tit for tat" handling of those standings in life. If you do this, I'll do that. But is this gonna to help us as a country? All this and much more on the new Q!

Local St. Louis music artist Coljac YSD joins the show with Patrick Wilson on this fine day. 

First up, Coljac introduces himself and discusses his background in the music business and teaches us all about his years growing up in rural Illinois and being an EMO DADDY. Coljac explains how he became a saxophone player and drummer. Recording music in his HS years, which weren't that long ago.

Next, Mark gets into discussing the most recent impeachment hearings happening in the Senate, as well as Trump going after General Soleimani. There doesn't seem to be a connection between Soleimani and anything going on in the world at the time Trump attacks Iran and kills him....so was it necessary at the time. Also why didn't Trump kill him earlier? Two years of dead americans that didn't have to die if Trump would have made this move years ago. All this and much more.

Finally Coljac hits the Hotseat and has to answer the 5 questions he doesn't know is coming. Which leads to an interesting discussion about ghosts and demons and an experience he had on a dark night out in the woods. 

Enjoy this amazing episode of The Q!

Mark Bland is bringing this into the 2nd decade of it's existence and now we have a new group of years and experiences to take a trip together on and learn about! 

It's 2020 and things are starting off hot in the world of President'ing. First up, joining Mark on the show for this first episode of the decade is none other than Gary Weed and St. Louis Hip Hop artist Marzo!  Marzo has slowly been working his game up and performing all over the midwest, but decides to grace the Q microphone for this show. 

First up, Mark wants to discuss with the guys the good, the bad and the ugly from the past decade. Race immediately gets brought up as the guys discuss the Ferguson and Trayvon Martin situations, Trump being elected as well as some fun things that happened in that decade. This also goes down a road where Gary thinks some words should be as bad to hear as the N-word and everyone discusses.

Next the show switches gears to discuss the current affairs in the USA and what is going on. The President is still dealing with Impeachment and it's not getting better at all. Mark explains how the democrats dropped the ball on this impeachment and how it's not looking like it will work out well for them. This turns to Mark asking "Could Civil War happen at this point?"  Will it or won't it. Country is definitely divided and wanting to tussle it up a bit, but will it happen.

Finally all new guests on the show have to go through our little obstacle course that we like to call "The Hot Seat". Marzo is on for the first time, so he is fielding random questions he did not know about. You get a chance to break down that artist facade and learn a little bit about the guy behind the magic. And we learn Marzo needs to watch more TV...he's horribly lacking in knowledge of popular shows...LOL. 

All this and much more on the Q!
