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.

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!

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!

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!
