Ahhh the business of being in media. It sounds cool to a lot of people but that one hour seems to be the toughest in the world to fill even with people driven to do it. 

Welcome to the new Q. Mark Bland sits down and goes solo on this newest of episodes. 

Mark discusses the Derek Chauvin trial coming to an end...The Daunte Wright situation....the Adam Toledo shooting....Police brutality.....Media company "Questions of the Day".....Maxine Waters....and much much more! 

Check out this new Q and let us know what you think. 

Apr 14, 2021

"No Reasonable Person would ever believe what we were telling them."...This is what Sydney Powell said after she was sued for 1.3 billion dollars by Dominion Voting Systems after she falsified information in a public manner leading to the tarnishment and defamation of their brand.  She only said these things in the hopes of making Donald Trump happy. And he is never happy. 

On this episode we are greeted and welcome Jason Kull back to the show to discuss the George Floyd trial that is currently happening in Minneapolis.  We also touch on the Sydney Powell lawsuit a smidge.

But this show is a rundown of the current events and we start with the death of rapper DMX and the Queen's husband Prince Phillip, who passed at 99 years old! 

On the heels of this is the new political story of Matt Gaetz and his need to date and take underage women (aka children) across state lines to hang out and pay them with Venmo...a digital footprint of unbelievable magnitude. This is craziness! And these are the same people reaching out to Trump for support in their down times. Guess what Trump did....listen and find out!

Finally, Mark and Jason take some interesting things and breka them down for the people out there...plus at what point does the political party and the legislature follow through on these treasonous things done on Jan 6th? Is it okay for Trump and lawmakers to get away with starting this issue.  There are people that supported Trump heavily that have their lives turned upside down now because they followed trumps orders....but Trump is just fine in his palace in Mar-A-Lago...

On this newest episode of the Q, things get switched up a little! Our guest is none other than Jason "DIRTY" Spurgeon, BattleHawks point man and Wrestling lover. But Dirty comes with his own plan in mind. Jason decides he wants to interview host Mark Bland about himself, on his own show. Never being one to turn down someone's hopes, Mark obliges and the show gets off to a fast placed start!

This leads to a discussion about the infamous Q Anon. Dirty has been watching some documentaries about weird bad people and this leads to a discussion of if the Q Anon people are as bad and scary as some serial killers like John Wayne Gacy? Should we be watching them closely so they don't also go down these more horrific paths after January 6th? This and much more in our discussion about the crazies of the USA! 

Finally Mark and Dirty get into a discussion about Tucker Carlson and if he is a good person. This leads to a discussion about "wokeness" in 2021. Have we gone too far too fast with wokeness...is it a bad thing to constantly be attacking everything we disagree with? Also is wokeness being weaponized for the wrong reasons because people are eager to correct the worlds bad habits? Is the pendulum swinging too far back against other cultures in the hopes of pointing out things to be unhappy about?

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

Mar 25, 2021

DJ Gelner is a friend of the Q and hasn't been on in quite some time. But that all changes with this new episode. DJ is back and we are rearing for some more fun on the Q. 

Right off the bat it couldn't be contained, DJ and Mark jump into Biden and the job he's been doing since Trump left office. The guys discuss the effectiveness of Biden in the first few months and praise him for the stimulus and deterrents to the COVID virus that he fast tracked. 

This leads to another discussion about the treatment of Asian Americans on the heels of a mass shooting in Atlanta, where a man went to multiple spa's and killed 8 people 6 being Asian American. Is there true Asian American hate, or is the story bigger than the argument? But the best part is that he blamed a special thing for why he did it....something you won't believe...find out what! 

Finally, This all leads to a discussion on Conspiracy and how it warps the minds of the people that believe it. Mark and DJ discuss the QAnon people, the alien people, the Lizard people, and even the religious fanatics that act the same exact way as the rest of them. All this and much more on this episode of The Q! 

Mar 12, 2021

Jason Kull comes and goes, but when he is back, he is in the house for one of the more fun discussions...So what's on the agenda for this epsiode....well...

First up, It's nice to have a president that focuses on the country and trying to fix the problems within the country as opposed to ignoring things and letting them get out of control. Mark and Jason discuss the effects of Joe Biden on the country and where Trump failed along the way to help everyone out during the pandemic. This all comes on the heels a of new 1.9 Trillion dollar stimulus package for COVID

Next up, It seems gas prices are starting to become noticeable again, but the reasons are all over the place for why they are necessary (because they are not necessary ever). Mark breaks down how this can affect us as a country over the next few years and we learn from our past mistakes. Plus we pin the blame on who is really to blame, and their name hasn't been uddered in a little while.

Finally, would you sleep fully clothed every night of the week? It sounds weird but there are people that sleep in their everyday clothes. It's part of who they are...But would you do it? We find out this and much more on this episode of the Q! 

Feb 22, 2021

Gary Weed is fresh off his trip from California where he went home for his birthday, but that didn't stop the news of the world from happening.

First up Mark wants to discuss the student loan forgiveness program that Joe Biden has presented. Mark and Gary weigh out the good and bad of the program with Gary benefitting from paying off those student loans. Will this be a big win for everyone or is this going to divide each other even further in this country? 

Next up Rush Limbaugh has died. This is no secret to the rest of the world, but he was a divider of people up till the end. We all knew he was sick and failing slowly so it was no surprise to anyone. But here we sit with the career and life in hindsight and man Rush is not coming off too glowing. Mark and Gary talk about the career and the meaning to their own broadcasting careers.

Finally...Mark and Gary's final debate on Iron Maiden and the Rock n Roll HOF is here. Iron Maiden is nominated and Mark takes on Gary in a discussion of the merit of their nomination. Listen to these two music guys argue and debate the reasoning for Iron Maiden to be in the Hall of Fame...who do you side with? This is the final debate between these two juggernauts on this subject.

Feb 15, 2021

Diplomacy seems to be the thing most needed after one Mr. Don Trump left office. For a long time diplomacy was out the window, but with the change in guard also comes a change in perspective and people are looking for that softer vibe for a while. 

WELL THAT'S NOT THIS SHOW, sorta...! On this weeks episode, Dirty (aka Jason) joins us on the show to discuss all kinds of stories with Pro-wrestling in the St. Louis Area...as well a deep dive into some politics and other assorted things throughout this 2 hour+ mega show. It was as if the content gods couldn't stop these two from playing in the sandbox when they got together. But that's all for your enjoyment. 

First Up Mark and Dirty table some beef right off the bat that really wasn't beef as you will find out (mostly cause Mark is getting old, lol) and this leads to some background on Dirty as he rises in the ranks of St. Louis media and starts to produce different styles of shows. This also leads to a discussion about Dirty and his teams early days on Riverfront Radio where Mark also had a past background dealing with that media company too.

This leads to a discussion about the newest inductees of The Independent St. Louis Wrestling Hall of Fame and contemporaries of St. Louis Wrestling that were involved with Mark when he was coming up in the business in late 1990's. This leads to a discussion about the different Hall of Fames and how people go about becoming eligible for induction. 

But this show doesn't stop, next up is the Political section of the show. And Mark and Dirty do not hold back one little bit when discussing politics. It's almost as if Dirty was released from political discussion jail because he doesn't hold back explaining what he thinks about the current state of politics and the stories within it. Mark picks up that Dirty went down some weird rabbit holes in the search for political truth and this lead to QAnon! Mark and Dirty discuss some of the weirder beliefs that Dirty came across during his time dipping through these rabbit holes. 

So much on this show we can't even tag because the show has so much in it. Trust us when we say this is definitely worth checking out! 

Feb 8, 2021

This week on the show Jonathan May brings his comedic style to the airwaves to discuss more life with Mark Bland. 

First up the gentlemen discuss their backgrounds in Social Media and Mark reconnecting with a gentleman named Mike Wilkerson and some of their discussions regarding politics and some of the past stuff from their lives. This leads to a discussion about how Trump is now pouting because he doesn't have a outlet to bent his dislike and is talking about starting his own social media network. 

Next up the gents discuss Marjorie Taylor Greene and he recent situation regarding the Capitol Riots and her stances outside of the political spectrum. Mrs. Greene has been seen going around for years antagonizing and attacking people on public streets smearing their names and defaming them. Why? Because she feel she was lead down the wrong path by the people in charge of her party. Nope she's just a racist rural Gerogia lady and Atlanta is too black for her to be happy. So why not be a racist and an ass.

Finally...Mark and Jonathan dig into the past and Jonathan gets thrown on the hot seat for the first time in a long time. He answers the questions but this leads to a discussion about Mark and some Bitcoin he received in 2009. He then sold them off for a little bit of money. Jonathan loses it and boom...the show has another golden moment! 

Feb 1, 2021

Gary Weed and Producer Robert Hickman join the show today to discuss some major sports world discussions! 

First up Tom Brady (Mark's secret love) has made it back to the Superbowl for another shot at a 7th ring! Will he do it, or maybe not....Also Aaron Rogers is in the news for losing and people wondering what happens with his team and his position. The guys also find out that Deshaun Watson is leaving Houston for greener pastures and the guy try and figure out what is going to be the best spot for him in the NFL. 

Mark then talks about the pendulum swing of politics and how the world keeps swinging back and forth from extremes. Whether it's from Bush to Obama or from Obama to Trump...it seems the cancel culture is now coming offline and making decisions on the world. Mark and the guys discuss.

Finally we got the world on it's side dealing with Kelly Anne Conway using social media for revenge porn against her own daughter...AND... It seems the online stock guys figured out that they can control the stock market and make a company like GameStop ("GME" on the ticker) worth a ton of cash. Mark and the guys discuss all this and much more! 

Jan 25, 2021

Well, they set 1000 drop dates between November 3rd and Jan 21, 2021. On this date it was going to be proven that Joe lost and Trump won. Then it was December 14th....then it was Jan 6th (they tried)...then it was January 20th...but you don't get it. The country is bigger than your political ideology. WW2 happened and the NAZI's were the bad guys for forcing people against their will. But January 2oth came and went, Trump left after causing more problems than the world cared for. 

Oh well. Times move one and so does the Q. On this amazing episode, Mark welcomes EJ Carter and music artist Z-Major to the show to discuss this new President and their administration, but not before discussing the old administration and their last ditch efforts to be the worst humans on earth.

But before all that, Mark gives a history lesson on BBS systems, the original internet and how some of the Gen X viewed different times and what came out of them. This leads to a discussion about Social media and how it has become the focus of new generations, but there is a cut off app/platform for every generation where the people choose to stop on their own.

This leads to a flub by Mark regarding an old post by EJ Carter coming back but pure radio/podcast gold comes from the tiniest mistake! Listen as the guys prognosticate about the future based off EJ carter getting his record label...in 2019.

Finally the guys discuss the stupidity of the Trump supporters and their attempts at the Capitol building. How many came up off their high horse to denounce Trump while others picked up the reigns and tried to defend Donald. It was all for nothing as they were told from moment one on. But there decision to lay their fate out. But alas, it comes back to normal as Z-Major (aka Zach) must hit the hotseat and answer the tough questions so people can learn about him! 

All this to entertain you and inform you! Please RT and Share with your friends! 

Jan 20, 2021

Well the insurrection is over and the Trump supporters did not succeed at all. They have become the butt of many jokes, but is it the end of Trump? 

Mike Eise and Gary Weed joined to do a show and discuss the Capitol Riot fallout and other stuff. 

The Guys discuss what is going to happen now. We know there will be a peaceful transfer of power, but will Trump be there or not. The guys discuss the potential for future rioting and insurrection in the US. 

People are online and around the world feeling like patriotism wasn't upheld. Do you feel patriotic right now? Or do you feel like your patriotism is gone. We discuss all of this and more on this episode of the Q show!

Jan 11, 2021

It's January 6th and Mark Bland, with Jason Kull, did not expect to be doing a show focused around this at all. 

See for years Mark has been dealing with a rogue element of politics which is this behind the scenes 4 Chan, QAnon, Trump Supporter conspiracy talk that others aren't researching or needing to watch. Through out the years, Mark has come on the Q and explained that there are rumblings that Trump can do this, or would do this other thing. But those are usually "theory" more than anything that would ever play out....until January 6th, 2021.

Mark and Jason have watched Donald Trump and Guiliani stand at a podium in front of Trump supporters and promote open insurrection against the US Capitol Building where VP Mike Pence is doing the electoral count. Off the well wishes of the US President and others, the seditious FEW have decided to invade the Capitol Building and killing 5 people (at the time of taping only 1/2 were known to have perished) in their wake. Destorying chambers, the rotunda and stealing things while breaking into computers and offices breaking federal laws.

In the wildest of events, Jason Kull and Mark Bland try to makes sense of what is happening and what should be happening from here on out. It's a historic, scary and damaging day for the Republic but many saw this coming....Also, how is a Capitol Building so under-guarded for the amount spent on Social media a day? 

Also this and more on this newest episode of The Q.

Jan 4, 2021

10 years in and out. It started with Tony Cabral and Ed Reggie being guests...10 yrs later, we got a sitting American President trying to actively plot a coup against the will of the citizens of the USA. And YouTube and Social Media run the world. Which is a great transition for us, because Comedian Steve Hofstetter who made a name on social media joins us as out 10th anniversary guest. 

It's been 10 years and we've had a few incarnations of the show through the years (podcast, to broadcast, to syndicated and back to a hybrid syndication/podcast). On this Anniversary we are joined by Jonathan May, Gary Weed and Jason Kull to discuss the past year of 2020 and a little about the past 10 years on the show. Due to Covid, we couldn't have a big party and live show for the 10th anniversay, but we can get a show together for all of you. So much to discuss and too much to type in here, so you just settle in and listen to our current thoughts on Trump and his moves, plus the past and a little telling of the future too!

Finally, Comedian Steve Hofstetter joins the Q as a guest to discuss his new book that he has been working on, plus he talks about how he gained notoriety in the world of social media and comedy. From his early days in Brooklyn until his new future in Pittsburgh, PA...Steve sits down to discuss some of his political views and to make sure you all know that this is just the beginning, buckle in and enjoy the ride! 

It's been 10 yrs and the Q Show just keeps bringing it. 

Dec 22, 2020

Producer Bobby and Jonathan May join to discuss the Holiday season, or in this case the coming future and the end of 2020. This isn't the year end show, but we are there. Close enough.

First up Bobby brings some beef to the table to discuss with Mark. It seems because of Bobby's past relationship with the show, he's been cold shouldered by other media. Mark has claimed for years on the show that people he's never worked with use their "make believe timeline and thoughts" as a way to lie to others. Here is a situation where people, who have no relationship with Mark (and never did) use Mark as a scapegoat for things. It's intellectually dishonest. And makes those people flat out liars. But this ends on a special message from Bobby that the Q and Mark approve!

Next it seems the VACCINES COMETH! As the year ends and Xmas is upon us, the world is getting the new Covid vaccines. Both Pfizer and Moderna have gotten FDA approval to roll them out and people are mixed on using them. Mark and the boys break down what a vaccine really is and what it's doing in layman's terms (the guys are not doctors) to your body when it gets it. Maybe you knew and maybe you didn't. But check this out and learn a little something new.

Finally, Defunding the police has been discussed a few times on the show, but Bobby and Jonathan break it down and get to the nitty gritty of how it's supposed to work and how people should be viewing these things. Interesting grey area that people discuss some aspects of but not the aspects we discuss on the Q.  After all this, the guys answer a pertinent Christmas question from a listener...Should it be okay to tell family and friends you are not getting them anything because you just don't have the money right now? With 2020 being rough and money being tight, is this okay to do. Find out what the answer is on this new episode of the Q! 

Dec 7, 2020

Do we have authenticated Election results...not as long as republicans are involved with the government process in 2020. We are learning they tend to be very toxic people on a national stage and just as bad offline and in normal life. Does that mean they are bad people, well you be the judge of their actions. As far as the election goes...we are STILL WAITING.

Mike Eise comes back on to finally talk a bit about his poker playing and discuss his thoughts on where we are at with this world in 2020. The World Series of Poker champion talks about his run to his bracelet in 2009 and some of the finer points into playing against some of the best players on earth. 

Mark and Mike also talk about the Tyson vs. Jones exhibition fight and some of the rules put in place before the fight happens. How did the fight come off to you? Find out where our guys heads were at prior to the two men battling each other. 

Finally, based on their interactions living in St. Louis, MO and seeing it first hand, Mark and Mike breakdown the current stance of Republicans and how they are viewing them. With no election results certified and Trump rushing to Pardon everyone he knows or hired in the WH, It makes sense they would discuss this in detail and try to get to the bottom of the issues. 

Nov 24, 2020

Travis Corley and Mike Eise are back to talk about this weird period in American politics and even weirder year. 

But where do these things formulate? How did we get to this point with Donald Trump and the antics he is pulling. Well on this episode of the Q we delve into that aspect of life. Travis brings up that the Stone Cold character from the 1990's of wrestling seems to be what Trump feels like. The crowd responds to it and everything. Problem is Mark knows this from his wrestling past and has touched on it before on the Q, but the guys go deeper this time. How do these two equate in the minds of many rural conservative? The guys discuss! 

Also COVID is rearing it's ugly head in the USA again and being a promoter, Travis Corley is constantly dealing with this city of STL and surrounding areas to try and put on shows. He has one coming up at Red Flag on Nov. 28th but it's all still up in the air on the protocols and how things will be received. The guys discuss the current re-emerging of COVID and if this time the US can stomp it out...this leads to a convo about Trumps Million MAGA march and how he views the "voters" and "supporters" of his situation. 

All this and much more on this episode of The Q.

Nov 16, 2020

Voter Fraud is the number thing on the "holdouts" mind currently. The Holdout being Donald Trump and his inability to get any lawsuits or things to go his way regarding the frivolous claims about the 2020 election being rigged or having fraudulent voting. 

Gary Weed joins on this down week to discuss the presidents claims to Voter Fraud, and lines out with Mark Bland how Trump is actually responsible for all his problems he has had regarding this election. It's a classic example of a guy shooting himself in the foot and blaming others. 

Also Mark and Gary discuss some sports and specifically how the Houston Astros former manager and the Red Sox former manager were able to get jobs in the MLB after the massive cheating scandal that they got caught in. 

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

Nov 9, 2020

So the 2020 election happened and so many things are still uncertain. Mark is joined by Jason Kull, Gary Weed and Jonathan May to discuss everything that happened on 11/3/2020 and throughout the entire election process...yet here we are an do we know who won for sure? 

Finally, the guys start to go down some more entertaining but x-rated alleys in the later half of the show. Make sure if you are listening with younger people to watch for the language. 

Nov 2, 2020

It's time....Biden or Trump? Who you got. We are gonna find out if the country becomes worse or better Election night 2020. But the Q is here to talk about all of it. 

First up Mike Eise is our guest on this show. He's a bracelet winning World Series of Poker champion based here in St. Louis, MO.  He's also a fellow broadcaster with some background being on other shows in the St. Louis area discussing poker. But we aren't discussing poker this time. We talking politics and life. To do this we also welcome back to the show, our favorite LIBERAL Andy Echele (we kid, we kid).

It's been a very long road to this time period. For 4 years it's been rough and the guys sit back and discuss Biden and Trump. The good and the bad....who will win this, we aren't sure. But for the third time in Q show history the guys will choose who they think will win and how it end up afterwards. Are they gonna be as accurate as Mark was in 2010, 2012, 2014 and 2018? 4 out of 5 ain't too shabby. 

First up Andy decides to let everyone know he's way way way more liberal than Mark is. Which is weird since Andy forgot that this is recorded audio for posterity and people can go back and listen to any show he's been on. But Mark play's along to keep the natives from being restless. 

Mark and the boys discuss old things others might have forgotten from our past. Andy brings up Biden and complaining about the republicans were the reason he couldn't do anything. Mark reminds everyone of the republican decree after the 2012 election and how in 2013/2014 the country ended up being shut down for a month because of republicans stomping their foot and whining about the budget.  Mark also reminds everyone of the deficit and how nobody has talked about it for 4 years, but if Biden wins, it's time to break that old argument out. 

There is so much discussion in this show and we are the precipice of a historic situation. Not because of the winner or loser. But simply because of the anger of the republicans and there need and want to be like Kenosha Kyle and hurt others purposefully. It's become their bell to ring. Will it happen....we don't know but we talk a lot in this final episode of the Q before/after the National Election of 2020!

Oct 27, 2020

A week or so out from the election and Ricky Cruz joins the show to discuss prowrestling and politics...but mostly wrestling! WE know it's been a long 4 years and we felt it only necessary to discuss something other than politics which we will be talking about for weeks on end coming up!

First up the guys discuss a little politics hitting on the Puerto Rican history of Ricky and how Trump came through after the hurricane a few years back and threw paper towel rolls at the people. This obviously was panned by many including Ricky, but still another blight on the republican name. Mark and Ricky discuss the current situation.

Next up Ricky and Mark talk about Ricky and some of his pointed shots in the business. There is always method to the madness and Mark reaches into the social media world to ask Ricky his opinion on certain business dealings end even joins in discussing what is needed and not needed from their points of view. 

Finally, Mark decides to get to know Ricky a little more. A little background into the man and the myth. Mark rattles off some questions until they get to who the best pound for pound worker in the Prowrestling industry is. Could be Keith Lee or Omega. Could be Cesaro or Styles....who did these two men bring to the table as the best workers in the business today? Tune in and find out! 

Oct 19, 2020

Jonathan May jumps on the show to discuss the VP debates and everything that is going on around the campaigns leading into this last few weeks of the Elections. 

First up the guys discuss the VP Debate with Kamala Harris and VP Mike Pence. It seems pretty one sided as the gentleman touch on the ease of Kamala to tell the sitting VP "Sir I am speaking, I'm Talking Sir"...and things of that nature. Mark and Jonathan break those things down.

Next up, People are worried that regardless of the outcome of the election, things will get more violent. Should it be this way, we are not sure. This leads to Mark discussing how the President is currently in power but spends too much time complaining about the current status of the country...should he fix it or not....the guys discuss.

Finally, Jonathan has come on the show before and claimed Werewolves are real and this leads Mark to ask about things like Bloody Mary in the dark mirror and other things of the supernatural. Being Halloween things are getting spooky and Mark wants to know how deep Jonathan gets on these beliefs. Fun episode to listen to!

Oct 1, 2020

Donald Trump and Joe Biden dived in head first on the first Presidential Debate of 2020. Moderated by Chris Wallace, there is literally too much to unpack in a description. Sit back and enjoy Mark Bland and Gary Weed as they discuss all the aspects of this first debate and the craziness that ensued! 

Sep 23, 2020

The show starts off with a bang when Producer Bobby comes out of nowhere to come back to the show and have some fun with Gary Weed and Mark Bland.

First up, Mark discusses tacos and their taste with both gentlemen when Gary starts to promote a local Mexican restaurant and Mark has to correct him. Some places are just better than others and it is subjective...but good is good. 

Next the guys discuss Whats been going on with Trump and the administration. Mark explains that it's not about politics anymore. It's about attitudes and just being a A-hole if you are calling yourself a republican. And they are being that way, which is why it was brought up. Mark has talked up staereotypes on the show before and in this case he tries to bring the topic to a head with both guests.

This leads to a discussion about the new book called RAGE from Bob Woodward. Trump announces he didn't care about the pandemic and played it down, tried not to let it out. An interesting discussion, to say the least, follows this topic.

Finally a little discussion about St. Louis County (where the show hales from) and their decision to not allow Fall Sports to happen and most schools are in virtual learning. Are you happy about this and being safe...or are you against it like most STL people and just don't care about your safety or others. Once again the proximity argument arises and the guys figure it out. 

Sep 9, 2020

We are back in the saddle and taking a harder look at the Republican National Convention and Democratic National Convention take-aways....

Joining us on this fun adventure is none other than Gary Weed, who makes his return after a few weeks. And then later we turn to a discussion about ARCH DEV OPS and one of their founders named Michael Fritzius aka Fritz! 

First up Mark and Gary break down relationships and how people should end them with each other. Both gentlemen have been dealing with people who are getting broken up during coronavirus and this goes into a bigger discussion of what is the proper way to break up when you're older. Or anytime for that matter.

Next, Mark and Gary breakdown and discuss the RNC and DNC conventions independently. This leads into a discussion about the midwest and what different sections of the country are depending on where you live and how you view them. This of course runs down the path of voting and Mark and Gary start talking about the election itself and how it should be handled in 2020.

Finally Gary is back into his I LOVE THE XFL and anything MARK SAYS is just WRONG! Well Mark and Gary discuss the XFL and it's new owner but more importantly mark calling that the XFL reboot would fail (doesn't matter how, because other sports are still going).

Next up is Michael Fritzius and he comes by to discuss his company Arch Dev Ops and the kind of things that they are involved with and how they can help businesses during the Coronavirus Pandemic. 

Mark asks Fritz about the Kenosha Killer named Kyle Rittenhouse and then explains the entire story to Fritz who is none the wiser. This is because Fritz is a self admitted NERD. So Mark had to investigate.

Mark and Fritz start talking about Nerd things and his homelife. Mark wants to break down what Fritz is working with and starts discussing his children and his relationship with his wife. 

Finally the guys nerd out and Mark puts Fritz through the Hot Seat and allows his inner nerd to join with Fritz as they argue and discuss Buck Rogers, Mark meeting a Dr. Who and Fritz's favorite TV shows and movies. 

So worth the wait. 

Aug 28, 2020

Things are getting edgy. People are on edge. Trump and the republicans choose to keep ignoring the Black Live Matter people and eventually someone gonna have to draw a line and play the "don't step over that line or else game". 

Trump feels protected by the military, but BLM is deeper than some punk kids causing issues on the street and the liberals are gonna have to stand up to this man and his promoting of LEO in the face of what is happening in the country.

Jonathan May joins us on this show to discuss the Jacob Blake and Kyle Rittenhouse situations. Jacob Blake was shot in the back by Kenosha police after they were called to a disturbance that Blake was involved with in Kenosha Wisconsin.  Jonathan and Mark discuss the situation and surrounding reasons. 

This leads to the discussion about Kyle Rittenhouse. A 17 yr old boy that drove with an AR-15 to Kenosha where people are protesting the Blake shooting. When he arrives he links up with people he knew from a FACEBOOK group and they were there to Protect the people and businesses. It was his "job" he told someone before the shooting started.  Rittenhouse then gets into his own melee with people where he shoots and kills 2 people and wounds another one badly. 

Conservatives have been GLEEFUL with Rittenhouse and have claimed Self Defense. He was arrested for Intentional Homicide which is not "self defense". 

Mark and Jonathan discuss all of this in glorious detail on this new episode of The Q!

(understand this was recorded before other pieces of info came out so the guys went with what they knew at the time)
