Brandon Travis, Producer Bobby and Gary Weed all join Mark on this Independence Day episode of the The Q. 

First up, Bobby brings sports to table and discusses the death of Tyler Scaggs, a professional baseball player for the Anaheim Angels. Tyler was found in his room unconscious and declared dead later. Nobody knows why this young man passed but the guys break down the situation and this leads to a discussion about his teammate Albert Pujols and his decisions regarding the STL Cardinals when he left for Anaheim.

Next up, Mark is PISSED a the liberal leadership in the congress and their lack of motivation to get things done as well as hold Trump accountable for his bad decisions and character. This leads to a discussion about Trump going to North Korea to do a photo-op while being the first president in decades to step on North Korean soil. But why was it necessary? Mark and the guys discuss.

Finally Mark realizes that people like his stories about people being jerks and discussing whether they should be viewed that way or not. Well this week The Q doesn't disappoint and brings to the table a story regarding a lady that is trying to get her husband to pay for something and whether it should happen at all after a sister in-law shows up and everything changes on the front. Find out what happened and if the person is a jerk or not according to you by listening to this episode of the Q.

Have you ever wondered where we come from? What was here before the big bang and stuff of that level?  All these questions and more get discussed on this episode of the Q. 

Jonathan May makes his return to the airwaves to discuss the William Barr debacle that has been the focus of the nation for a week. William Barr, the Attorney General, didn't want to go to the House Judiciary Committee investigation into the Mueller Report.  So he just didn't show up. Which for anyone else in the country would be contempt of court and a fine/possibly jail time.  But not for Trump's #1 lawyer in the country. Nope, he's allowed to do whatever he wants because in Trumps head it is about fame and popularity. 

Mark then reads some posts from his past and others, just to gauge where their heads are at. One female poses the question about our consciousness and mental where-with-all.  This brings Mark around to having Jonathan help him figure out what happened or existed before the Big Bang. Before the advent of time as we know it, did something physical just appear out of nothing. How did that happen.

This finally leads to Mark and Jonathan reading some letters from the listeners, including one letter that made Mark discuss and question the future of the Q. Seems as though politics has pushed many people away from focusing on it. Mark tries to figure out if the Q needs a change!

All this and much more on this new episode of the Q!

Mark Bland is joined by Producer Bobby and Gary Weed to discuss the upcoming 2018 midterms and voting in general!

First up, Gary and Mark made a bet for the World Series and Mark ended up winning the bet. Discussion of the World series takes us down a sports path once again discussing the value of players within in their respective sports. Who was the best Baseball Pitcher of all time? Is it Greg Maddux or Rollie Fingers? Also who stands out in other sports.  Hockey, Football and all of them. The guys discuss this at length.

Then the gears get switched and it's on the to newest and dumbest thing that Trump could have ever proposed. He wants to use and executive order to remove and override the 14th Amendment to the Constitution. This definitely caught him some hell for even throwing it out there as a potential. All this comes on the backs of the Migrant Caravan making it's way up from Central America with estimates of 10,000+ people looking for asylum.  The guys discuss aspects of this decision and the long term reprecussions that could form from this Trump decision.

The discussion turns to video games on the release of the new Playstation Classic, but does it have the games people want or deserve? Everyone plays referee discussing what is on the machine and what is not. This leads to a convo about playing video games in 2018 on mobile devices and if you ever spend money on the games for yourself.  Mark defends his spending money on a couple mobile games with the most basic of arguments..."I would have done it anyway."  Listen as Mark explains and you see if he makes sense or not.

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.
