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.

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.
