Dirty of the XFL/ST....wait a second...nope! You can't say that anymore. Jason Spurgeon of the The XFans show which discusses the XFL and their league is joining us on this episode to discuss a few things that we have on the Table.
First up Dirty drops the bomb that they are no longer the XFLSTL talk show anymore. They are now the Xfans show and the XFL called him directly to ask him to change the name of his program. And he and his co-host did do that. So from here on out, they are the Xfans!
Next up Trump has been sued again. This time Letitia James of the SDNY has sued trump and his children for the fraud they committed with his charities and vouching from pricing on his properties that were lets say less than valuable as stated. So once again Trump in hot water for literally everything he ever does, which is always pretty shztty.
Then the guys discuss a local issue that happened with their sister radio station and a local news anchor. This then leads to disussions on Valdamir Putin and his decision to call up draftee's for his Ukranian war. Only problem is that if you are forcing your citizens to fight and fill in the gaps, you aren't as big and tough as you have pretended. It's all coming undone and the guys are here to let you know!
Finally what starts as some opinions that are not as popular as people think, Mark and the boys start discussing the Homerun chase going on in the MLB. At one time we had Bonds breaking records, but those days are tarnished...but should they be. Mark brings up the need for history to show that McGwire and them weren't using banned substances in the late 90's when they hit for those records. So Judge in NY might get there/did get there but he still has others to catch.
All this and much more on this episode of the Q!
Drew Pinson and Jason Kull join Mark Bland on this episode where the gentlemen decide to remember the Queen of England who just died in the past week. After decades of reign, the most recognizable person in a Monarchy has passed to the other side. It's such a big deal that they released a press release that states Trump is not invited to the funeral at all. Crazy to think....
Also, Mark is becoming really beaten down about how every time something happens in the music or movie business, it immediately is brought down a notch or two by people being too woke. The latest craziness is people using AI to make the trailer for Disney's new Little Mermaid with a white girl instead of a black lead. Mark thinks this is way way over the top, but also questions why there is a need to constantly play with things on purpose to create division.
Mark and the guys talk about homophobia, racism and many other issues that pop up quite often even though in practice there really isn't much that "happens" regarding those topics. And Mark believes those topics are only a focus for a launching point. Everyone doesn't need to complain and whine about everything all the time. Not every Joke is an attack on a whole culture. Some things are just funny in thought and the moment. The world is insensitive and now people are being too sensitive to everything all the time. Now Trump threatening people and the libs are all for it...but it's sensitivity again!
The gentle touch on this topic multiple times in the show.
Finally Mark has Drew and Jason faceoff in a game of Trivia to see who is the trivia master of the Q. Who won? Who knew more? Which person seemed to guess too much? All this and more will be answered in this weeks finale!

MMWA has a Sept. 10th event coming up and they sent over their guy, the South Broadway Savior....JSO... to be our guest on this new episode.
First up Mark wants to find out about the wrestler and his background. Hailing from STL, Mark and his co-host Jason Kull find out that there is a former Junior Blues Player who had a shot at a major university that historical in our great country and it ain't Harvard. This leads to convos about Pro-Wrestling and the business and JSO's eventual rise to popularity.
It's not been a good week for Trump. It seems the documents he took were so secret even the FBI had to get clearance to view them for investigating. Which really just whittled the culprits down to Trump and Pence technically. And since the world knows Pence was attacked on Jan 6th, it doesn't seem to point to anyone other than Don. But Mark tries to put the way we look this and other things in perspective throughtout this show.
Finally Mark and the boys discuss AI and how it won a competition for digital art at the Colorado State Fair and how close we are getting to ourselves eradicating ourselves. And then it's time for the one and only JSO to jump on the hotseat and answer some random questions to make himself feel important and to help us learn of the AVATAR OF EXCELLENCE and who he is!
Donald Trump is in serious hot water. He took stuff he shouldn't have and now it comes out that he took A LOT.
On this episode of the show, Mike Eise joins Mark to discuss the brand new student debt relief bill that has everyone talking. The Biden admin has realized keeping the promises seems to help them get notice and keep them in the good graces. The dems have put forth a Debt relief bill for college students, effectively wiping $10,000 in debt off their books. Mark and Mike rip into this amazing development.
Donald Trump seems to have taken 700+ documents including top secret documents from his time in the White house. As Mark explains, everyone thought it was a couple things he shouldn't have when the story broke. Now we realize he was harboring tons of info to selll to terrorists and bad people against the USA. This is a former President and in centuries past...Aaron burr would have already taken out this treasonous person. The guys discuss.
Finally We discuss some of the background in the world of Poker for our friend Mike eise. He answers some questions that Mark has been wondering for a while. All this and much more on this episode of the Q!
Mark Bland and Drew Pinson attack the stories of the week.
First up is Liz cheney and her need to win her primary in Wyoming. Now Wyoming believes anything Donald Trump says. There is no real verification for anything the choose to do and they chose to fire Liz Cheney. So now they are the party of criminals and losers. Mark and Drew discuss how this is different than any other year in the history of ever.
Second, the guys focus on what was being traded and bandied about by Trump during his raid in the past few weeks. It's said that ole Donnie had classified secret nuclear documents he took from the archives...and they FOUND those specific documents. Not easy to get ones either. So this was a decision by a treasonous person against the USA.
Finally the new documentary TrainWreck: Woodstock '99 came out and Mark wants to discuss it a bit and focus on Fred Durst and Limp Bizkit were to blame for the rioting and dangerous atmorsphere...but they were already pissed before Fred Durst and company showed up.
All this and much more on this episode of The Q!
Well well well it seems our friend Donald Trump was busy running around the White house and secret archives grabbing documents he shouldn't have and storing them at Mar-a-Lago. And the FBI figured it out. Then they went and searched and found those exact documents they were looking for. Trump claimed it was a political poloy, except they found the stuff. So how was it politics?
Mike Eise and Jason Kull join to discuss this latest story in the world of the former president. Mark then reminds the world that Alex Jones and his text's ae out there floating around. With all this connecting back to Trump in many ways, we are finding out that the republican voters were the fools the Q always claimed they were.
Next up the guys focus on candidates for the 2024 presidential election because Mike wants some younger blood in the office to focus on pressing issues of 2022. This makes sense and many have claimed Trump, Biden and all of the people of the past few years are just too old to be handling these things.
Finally, Mark Discusses how conspiratorial people tend to take things in the media and alter them to fit their perception and try to lie to people. There are big networks like FOX where they all read the same speech after trump took office...so it is real that people use media to swerve others...but it's usually Trump and conservatives that are doing it.
Do you know what the Mandela Effect is? Well it's this idea that you remember things in a similar but wrong way from the way it was originally presented. Well welcome the Q's version of that! Mark Bland our great host seems to be Mandela'ing himself all over the place on this episode. Drew Pinson and Mike Eise join to discuss a few different things and the episode takes an interesting turn.
First up the gents discuss Drew Pinson and his harrowing adventure at his job the other night. Drew was involved in an active shooter situation and goes into detail discussing his involvement and everything surrounding it! This comes on the heels of what is going to be the most rain to fall in a 24 hour period in St. Louis history. Drew gets caught in this torrential rain storm while trying to calm down from his life flashing before his eyes. All this and more, so check it out!
Next up, there are people in the republican party that think they are going to have a civil war. How many of these people fall into this category? Well the guys discuss the potential for civil war and if the 30% of republicans is indicative of Trump supporters or just an angry amount.
Finally, Mark and Drew get into a debate. Mark is discussing something regarding his background with LGBTQ and makes the comment that the culture tends to bring out and flourish in the world of the arts and other great things. Drew feels mark is stating things in a prejudice way. Mark being older thinks he is fine describing the situation and how people will view what he said. Then comes the challenge for all LGBTQ people to listen to the episode and let Mark and the guys know if it sounds prejudice or if it's Drew overvaluing it too much?
Missouri State Senate candidate joins Mark Bland, Mike Eise and Jason Kull for a few minutes to discuss his senate campaign in a Red State like Missouri and what his plans are for the future of the state and country.
First up, the guys get to know a bit about Mr. Sinclair and his focus for the rest of the campaign. This includes the constituents in the district 2 area for the state of Missouri. Michael is focusing on Term Limits for judges and the SCOTUS, plus he wants to better our infrastructure and women's rights are heavily on his mind. This all gets Mr. Eise amped up to discuss the electoral college and how voting is used in the USA today. All this leads to a discussion about Uvalde and gun reform in the US, and specifically in the state of Missouri.
Then it's time for Michael to jump into the Hot SEAT and do what the others before him did...answer the questions! And he does, while also getting people amped up to change more laws and things in the USA, just off his answers alone. A candidate of merit!
Finally Mark and the guys sit back to discuss some other things that affect adults. Parenting! Mark is at home with the kids while they are summer break and he is realzing that they come to him and say they are bored more than ever before. This ties back into some discussion the guys had with Sinclair earlier in the show and how the kids or ingesting entertainment now compared to the past...will something be worked out...find out on this episode of the Q!
So Eric Greitens decided to put out a commercial in St. Louis stating that he is HUNTING RINO's (Republicans In Name Only). This is kinda crazy since he is openly using language and visuals that are feeding his sycophant lifestyle of wanting to hurt people. Why? Well we discuss this on the newest Q.
Jonathan May and Jason Kull make their way back to the table to discuss the stories in the news. This includes the January 6th hearings that just happened (again) and we found out that the Oath Keepers were aware of the plot a few weeks before as shown through text messages. Plus one of the men there at the inssurection has had a change of heart and testified against Trump and all the conservatives.
Next up is the police video and surveillance video released by the media of UVALDE and their lack of effort trying to save the Robb elementary kids. It's kinda sickening and makes adult very angry when they see this video.
Finally, to get away from those evil and bad stories, Mark lightens it up a bit with a game of Choose you House and What Movie or TV show would you live in. Hilarity ensues and everyone had a blast. check out this new episode of the Q!
Drew Pinson joins on this show with so much going on, it's hard to keep up.
First things first, Mark Bland and Drew Pinson tackle the 4th of July Shooting in Highland Park, IL and the subsequent Jayland Walker shooting over the 4th of July weekend. But it's tough for Mark to keep coming on the show discussing kids getting shot up for no reason, or another unarmed person being shot and killed. It's taking it's toll on everyone and these men discuss.
Next Mark talks a little about the business of wrestling and how the people in the business today come from a different background than others in the past, and with so many differing backgrounds, the needs of the wrestlers over the years have developed behind the scenes assistants and other people that help with their careers. This comes from a story about Buff Bagwell firing his social media person. This then turns to a discussion about outgoing Prime Minister Boris Johnson and how he needs to resign (and did after this show).
Finally Mark and Drew decide to take on soame questions of love and this leads to Drew explaining his background in the world of bartending and working in places where KINK is a thing. Download and find out more! All on this episode of The Q.
Drew Pinson and Mike Eise join Mark Bland fresh off his cruise through carribean!
When Mark left, the country was struggling but moving forward, when he came back, it was as if he landed in 1935 Germany. Authoritarianism swept through the Supreme Court and they decided to overturn Roe v. Wade. Which took rights away from millions of women in one instant and turned the clock back to a time that Donald Trump enjoyed.
Mark talks about his cruise, but then immediately jumps into abortion rights and the SCOTUS decision while he was gone. This leads to a convo about parents trying to indoctrinate other people's kids into their way of thinking. The only ones that do it consistently are weird christian and evangelical children.
Next up there was a special last minute hearing for the Jan 6th testimonies and committee. They brought in former WH aide Cassidy Hutchinson to testify to a bevvy of issue including Trump throwing plates of food and condiments everywhere. How does this affect the committee...the guys discuss.
Finally Mark takes some opinions on the Roe v. Wade decision and then brings up some questions for Drew and Mike to throw around and answer for themselves. Most importantly, What is america good at? What do they do well that others notice? Find out what the guests said on this edition of The Q!
Well Inflation is crippling the US economy. Mike Eise is here to talk with Mark Bland about this and everything else going on in the world.
First up, Mike and Mark need to discuss the J6 (aka January 6th) hearings. A lot of revelations have been coming out and each one more deafening and defeating of that which is the geniusly guy Donald Trump. Everyone in this guys life turned on him the day after the event and even this hearing isn't doing it complete justice. Mark and Mike break down all the major stories and angles from this event!
Next up Hunter Bidens Laptop is sorta a new friend of the Q and when Dirty wanted to hear an interview with the Laptop, Mark said he'd make it happen...and BOOYAH! Hunter Bidens Laptop is hear to answer some questions and let people know what he has stored in and on those hard drives.
Finally Inflation and supply chain issues are going to lead to another recession. But if Gas prices got higher this time than 14 years ago, then the recession might be worse. But who is at fault? when will this hit. Well the two gents take on this discussion and start preparing everyone for the potential worst. Listen and maybe you'll learn something you did not know.
Dirty Jay Spurgeon is back in the studio again, along with Mark Bland and Drew Pinson.
First up, Mark talks to Dirty about ASMR and this new fad of white noising our lives for the sake of calming down. On top of this, it gets deeper to the tune of millions of people. This walks right into Mark and Dirty focusing on the fact that the millennials seemed to have changed the world...but is it for the better or worse.
This becomes a game of Gen X versus the Millennials on The Q. But it doesn't get that far because one of the people in the game is in total agreement with the other one...but which one is it.
Later on the guys focus on conservatives and what the word "conservative" is starting to morph into. People that used to be proud are now having to watch what they associate their beliefs with because that umbrella and stereotype is getting worse not better. Will people in 2040 even identify as Conservative or not...they discuss!
Finally Mark, Drew and Dirty (aka Clean) discuss some moral dilemma's and then finally there is some XFL sweet bonus info that NOBODY knows until now! WE get the secret lowdown on something Battlehawks fans have been waiting to hear...another nugget of what is to come...tune in and find out what!
Man it's been a week for Ted Cruz. He has made the dumbest comments regarding doors and the Uvalde shooting. He has thrown his hat in the ring to give daily quips about gun control...but nobody is telling Ted what he really needs to hear. Well that my friends is why the Q show is here!
First up Mark welcomes Drew Pinson and Jason Kull to show to discuss the newest developments going on with the Uvalde shooting at Robb Elementary last week. It seems the police were less than prepared and then got a little worried about being shot by the killer. Things that we will definitely address on this episode.
Also, Mark has been thinking that this is the beginning of 2022 summer, and right after is the fall and the elections. Which will be the beginning of non stop stupid commericals and people trying to get everyone's attention for 2024 poresidential election...but who truly has a shot on the GOP side with all these bad shootings and things going on...well the men discuss and figure it out!
Finally Mark and the guys were talking off air what the greatest TV sitcom of all time is. So Mark found a list on the internet and figured, lets see who is better at guessing. So Drew and Jason square off in a game of "who knows better" with the Greatest TV Sitcoms of all time!
Pay attention, this show goes by fast!
The Q prides itself on discussing the latest in the news, current affairs and pop culture. But some shows touch on other topics that make us revisit and discuss deeper the way we are as people. This is one of those episodes.
First up our special guests this week are Alfred Konuwa and Drew Pinson. Alfred is the Pro-wrestling writer for Forbes magazine, covering the business on their behalf. Also coming back for another round is Drew Pinson to add his take on what is going on in the world.
The Abortion issue is still rife in the USA with people attacking supreme court justices houses and making a mockery of most of us as Adults. And this is why the episode is named the way it is. Sometimes we need to discuss things deeper and wrestle with our own decision making process to come forward with the best options. It doesn't seem we are there yet and so for that we are Wrestling with Ourselves for the time being. Mark and Drew discuss this aspect of life and the controversy currently.
Alfred Konuwa joins the show to discuss being a wrestling writer, but also to talk about the business. Mark and alfred touch on the internet dirt sheets and their value in 2022, who you should and probably shouldn't listen to to get your news, some new moves with WWE talent and much more. Plus Alfred hits the hotseat to answer a few questions since he is a first timer.
Finally Mark and Drew discuss a letter from a distraught woman that is dealing with heavy 21st century problems because the past is coming to bite her "date" on the butt. Find out what problem is going on that really is going to become an issue for everyone in the world at some point.
Another week and another Q...right? Not so fast...
This week the SCOTUS decided they are gonna overturn Roe V. Wade and make abortion illegal in the USA. This seems weird to be happening now, as if these justices are the ones to make that decision and make it stick. But a document was leaked and then verified by the SCOTUS to be accurate. So here we are!
Drew Pinson is a long time fan of the show and wanted to see how we make the donuts, so him and Jason Kull join us on this weeks episode to discuss ROEvsWADE and all the things that will happen with this decision. So a lot to talk about.
Plus Madison Cawthorn has been caught in a precarious position and his electable future might be in druthers. But it's weird that the conservatives always talking sexual abuse and pedophilia, but also are the ones that hate all that stuff. Well when you see this video, those feelings exit the door.
Finally Drew Pinson is going to take the HotSeat and put in his answers so that he can go down in Q history as one of the real ones!
Mark Bland, Matt Krueger and Andy Echele are back together on the same show for the first time in years. How did it go, well find out!

Next up the state of Florida and Ron Desantis have a problem with Disney being too diverse and they don't want that in their state. It's seems moving the theme park might be a great idea. all this talk leads to discussing about Elon Musk and his purchase of Twitter.
Finally, Mark brings out the Dr. Love in both guest when he decides to bring some personal questions to the table for everyone to delve into. Also Mark brings up some unpopular or weird statements and the gentlemen figure out if they agree or not.

Oh here we are. Took 12 years and hours and hours of talking to get to this point, but we are at 500 Episodes. A Show so big I had to split it into 2 episodes just to get the people involved that we wanted and needed.
First up the show welcomes long time Producer Bobby back. We haven't seen Bobby in a long while and it's nice to have him around for a show. Also making an appearance is our favorite liberal Jason Kull.
From there we venture back to the original guest on the Q. Episode one features our host Mark and long time film producer and director Anthony Cabral. Well even with moving and living in Chicago now, he couldn't be stopped from returning to the airwaves to chop it up with Mark and discuss Russia and a few other news stories.
Then it is on to the main event. For years the Tournament of Pop culture was a mainstay on the show! There is no way an episode goes by without a throwback to the TOPC! This TOPC is perfect and a long time in the coming.
Mark and the boys dive into figuring out the best Animated TV Series/Show of all time. Some true Icons and heavy hitters on the list. Did your show make the cut? Did it Win? Find out on the 500th Episode of The Q....Part 1!
Mark Bland and Jason Kull realize it ihas been a crazy week in the world. We had a man jump on stage on live tv and decide to slap a fellow artist. And this wasn't just anyone, this was WILL SMITH and he slapped comedian CHRIS ROCK...and at the Oscars of all place.
But the breakdown on this goes deeper and Mark discusses with Jason about the implications for the people that were watching at home and the all the intersecting cultures that movies and money touch.
Also Mark and Jason discuss their pasts and some of their experiences in other businesses in regards to over the top situations they have dealt with while working.
Finally the guys decide that they want to see what Ranker has for the top Grunge songs of the 1990's. This doesn't pan out but the guys settle on a list of the best ROCK songs of the 1990's (which inlcuded a ton of grunge). Do the ones that made the list, make your list? Listen and find out!
