We are knee deep in the Coronavirus and the Q couldn't think of a better person to have on than Christopher Ave (pronounce AH-VAY) a political correspondent formerly of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch here in St. Louis, MO.

First up Chirstopher and Mark discuss the current vibe of situations in their lives. How they are personally handling things and how their families are holding up. This leads to the two men discussing Trumps response to the coronavirus and how it should be viewed too.

Next up, Music. Mark finds out about Christopher being a huge Beatles and music fan, so the two men decided to go down that road and talk about their favorite groups and what about music makes them tick.

Finally Mark puts Christopher Ave on the Hot Seat to ask himn 5 questions out of the blue so we can all learn more about what makes a guy like him go. I promise, if you are a Christopher Ave fan or friend, you have to hear some of these questions and learn about Christopher in ways you weren't expecting. 

A fun show and so much more in it...all this and much more with our guest on this episode of The Q!
