John Scheper joins Mark to discuss the Robb elementary school shooting. Plus gun control and the Ukraine war. 

We would write more, but this weeks tragedy is too much to discuss. It really hit hard like Sandy Hook and many are very angry! 

So all this and much moire this week on the Q!

Tough week for many. On the heels of two mass killings, Mark Bland, Jason Kull & Mike Eise have to sit down and discuss the world when it's just not pleasureable. 

First up Mark joined the Recounts (social media page) new Twitch game show called Chatterbrain and brought the KYRO name to the country! Did he win or lose, you'll have to watch the game show to find out technically. 

Next up is the Buffalo shooting since it was first on the minds of people. But Mark is sick of discussing and giving creedence to bad people that kill others. Brings about a discussion on suicide and being a killer. Should they or shouldn't they. Well the men discuss. 

During the show, Jason decides to join Truth Social to see what recent primary loser Madison Cawthorn had to say. But this unravelled a lot of baggage that the new social media network is not telling people. Like they force you to follow and "like" two conservatives  to juice their numbers. Which is dishonest right off the bat. But old people making young people social media, you are gonna have mistake that are glaring.

Finally the guys sit down and discuss some unpopular things said to Mark throughout the week on social media and in direct discussions. Do you agree or is it too much. You tell all of us!

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!
