Jenna Roberson, Candidate for Missouri State Congress, joins once again to keep these two politicos, Mark Bland and Jason Kull, in check. 

First up, not a week goes by that something stupid doesn't come out the mouth of Donald Trump. This week was no excpetion and along with election deniers having to change their legal tune or end up footing the bill that Trump will never pay...Donald once again pu this foot in his mouth with Sean Hannity. During a live interview on FOX, Trump explained that he would be a dictator for 1 day...closing the borders and drilling for Oil (which we do more now that even during his presidency).  Well this obviously is not sitting well with many because he said he would do the thing everyone is claiming is a bad thing...being a dictator. The exact opposite the beliefs and wishes of the forefathers. So the crew discusses this issue.

Next up is Kevin McCarthy deciding he doesn't want to work in congress anymore. So he is retiring and leaving the other mental geniuses footing the bill. This comes after his disasterous attempts to be a shill for Trump and other election deniers...plus it taking 15 straight votes for his seat as the Speaker of the House. His exit can't come quick enough for the next round of the Tournament of Pop Culture: Biggest Jerk in TV/Movie history....who will join the three others in the final of the ultimate Jerk.

Finally NO STUPID QUESTIONS is a new game that Mark brings to the table for everyone. Some questions are ones that people are typically afraid to ask others simply out of regret or anxiety of how they will be viewed. Well Mark found a place where they love to load up the questions and Mark and team will knock down the answers...and tell everyone...if it is indeed a stupid question or not! 

Nov 30, 2023

We are moving towards  Xmas and with that, there is always room to introduce a new fan of the world of horror...so we are doing that today.

James Dean is fresh off directing his newest film called XXX-mas! Starring one of our own and friend of the show Jonathan May! James is no spring chicken and has been working in and on movies for a while now. A huge horror buff, James joins to talk with Mark Bland and Jason Kull about the production, his costs and address things that Mark brings up regarding other movies in the same vein and how he approached that as he made this movie. 

But before that, Mark and Jason have to talk some politics and this week was great with Hunter Biden stating that he would like to do any depositions or interviews regarding his "crimes" in a public forum. The public aspect made the republicans blush fast and backpedal because everyone can watch and see the things they want to be able to make up and put out there. Instead they now have a person wanting to go public and out them for the bad people they are...and it seems this is becoming the norm. People want to out bad people, especially republicans and their supporters. 

Finally, it is Week three of the TOPC: Biggest TV/Movie Jerks of ALL TIME! We have some heavyweights moving into this weeks bracket, including a recent final four player named George Costanza. What's interesting is that even with a change of topic and focus, the idea of being the lovable jerk is coming through in this competition too. It's what helped get us the Best TV character of All time...and now with some movie charcters in the mix, it's helping us find the people that could move thru. Did Costanza make it through...take a listen and find out! 

Nov 25, 2023

John Kiehne, congressional candidate, joins us for this after Thanksgiving episode. 

First up, it seems that Mark Bland and Jason Kull keep discussing this run up to Trump in 2024. And to do that effectively, they need State house candidate Jenna Roberson to join them and bring a womans touch to so much Trump mansplaining.  And in this case Trump is explaining that he has the bigliest and bestliest rallies and everyone should care about it. Trump keeps stating the lawyers and judges of America are wrong for charging him for doing illegal things and crimes that others go to jail for. 

Next up joins John Kiehne. John is running for congress against Ann Wagner in the St. Louis area. To get the seat in the heavily Red State, John has to get the word out about his policies and politics. John joins to explain that he has a background in Music and tell the guys a littel about his past. Then John sits in for the Hot Seat where people get to know a little better about him and what two foods when put together are just amazing deliciousness in your mouth! Finally, John and crew discuss his policies and politics regarding womens rights and abortions plus much, much more. 

finally the Second week of the Biggest Jerks in TV/Movie history are being run down and this week has some heavyweights that could end up winning the entire tournament. Then again there are a few people that haven't been put into the game yet. Who will reign supreme and who is the biggest jerk of all time...we will all find out! 


Nov 16, 2023

Jonathan May makes his Triumphant return to the QNow and boy do we have some special things to talk about in the world of politics! 

Fresh off making a new horror film for this season coming up, the actor of XXX-mas, joins Mark Bland and Jason Kull to talk about his life, the movie coming up and all the things that go into making Jonathan, well Jonathan! But that is not all...

Markwayne Mullen and Kevin McCarthy finally said the quiet part out loud this week when they went full on mental illness and started trying to physically assault other memebers of congress and even guests to Capitol Hill. First up Markwayne of Oklahoma decided to try and get in the face of a Teamster that was a guest on capitol hill. Evidently the two men had words on SOCIAL MEDIA and the republican just couldn't let Social Media go...so he tried starting a fight in the Senate chamber before being punked by Bernie Sanders and told to act like an adult.  In another section of the Capitol, Kevin McCarthy the whiny former Speaker of the house elbaowed and tried to physically attack another republican because he is mad everyone turned on them. Mark and the guys discuss all of this craziness happening!

Then, for his triumphant return, Mark put together a special Tournament of Pop culture that might become a larger fight. Mark chose 16 people to put up against each other for the title of Biggest/Best Jerk in a movie or TV show. An amazing topic that has a ton of opportunities and people that can be thrown into the mix coming up. Who do you think should be in future tournaments...did your favorite movie/TV jerk make this tournament right here? And we definitely have strong competition in this breakdown. But this is discussed live on the show and worth your time to check out. 

Finally, it's been a while but Fxck My Life has been on the internet for many years. We used to bring it up on the show all the time, but things change and time moves one. With that said, the return of FML comes to the Qnow and boy are their some doozy's to deal with on this Episode! 

Nov 11, 2023

Election 2023 came and went, and we all learned that 2024 could be a bad year for being a republican. But that did not stop candidate Jenna Roberson from joining once again and bringing her female touch to the show! 

With all the players jockeying for position, a few states had 2023 elections! Ohio decided to add Abortion and Marijuana to the rights that their citizens have....very LIBERAL OF THEM. And Kentucky elected a democrat for governor, showing that even red states typically, are changing up their tune a little. Mark Bland and Jason Kull discuss this Jenna and discuss what 2024 truly holds for the libs and cons.

It seems while everyone was not watching, Britney Spears released a tell all book and one of the craziest things that came out of it was her story of dating a young Justin Timberlake and the decisions that they made together many years ago. Dealing with aboriton in this election year, it is only fitting that their story would reverberate with the nation. Plus Mark and Jason went to a Metallica show and Mark dealt with a parking lot nightmare after the show. It's all hands on deck as they breakdown their trip to the dome! 

Finally, The Ranker review is sometimes more difficult to guage based on the topics and this was a week to focus on the topics. With that being said, The Top NFL QB's of All Time is the list our friends here break down and It is truly something. Maybe there are names you aren't thinking of in that top 10...well this is why they break it all down. Plus Mark breaks out a letter or two from the listeners to try and help them fix their lives! 

Nov 4, 2023

Well it has been a hell of a week in the world of politics and everything around it. Jenna Roberson joins back with the show to help Mark Bland and Jason Kull discuss what is going on. 

First up Mark and the peeps discuss his amazing Cracker Barrel moment and how it showcases how the world is starting to fall apart. And why would a company take such a crazy stance that is obviously ludacris...but here we are getting ready for the trash that is gonna be 2024 and things are leading down a certain path. 

Next up, Trump is losing is weekly now about the judges, the lawsuits and this week his family is sitting down and discussing his less than special dealings. But the Party of the GOP is in shambles. Ken Buck is pulling out and telling the world they lost their way. The Qnow and Mark and Jason been stating this since Trump won in 2016 and everyone laughed at them for that.  Here we are, the speaker is crazy. The memebers are nuts...and even red state stalwarts like Ken Buck are denouncing and running away from the party. If Trump loses in 2024, can they even survive? 

Next up, St. Louis Native Cori Bush rode her wave to Capitol hill in 2020. Making a name during the Michael Brown situation, she felt like a fresh breath of air for the STL. But now walking into 2024, Cori recieves news that Wesley Bell, another prominent POC in the STL political scene is coming for her seat. Mark, Jenna and Jason discuss this new challenger and whether Cori can hold on to her seat. Plus what are the people in the area stating when asked about their opinion of Cori and her political moves. 

Finally, Mark has a list of one liners and funny things that are compiled for radio and TV people each week. Zingers to let you know they are the funny ones. Mark gets a list compiled for the show and then the three judge whether these are truly good lines or just taking pot shots for the sake of being mean. You decide as you listen along! 

Oct 28, 2023

We had it wrong all along. It was never gonna be a Civil War. The country is too interconnected and the states are on top of each other. Can't draw a east/west line or any other at this point. So everyone will have to be fair game in the new Trump led war on voters/citizens. Which means it will be the Real American PURGE. That's what they are gearing up for. 

Jenna Roberson returns to hang out with Mark Bland and Jason Kull. Hopefully this time Mark will not butcher the name of this candidate for HD-63 in Missouri! But this time around they have a few things to talk about politically and a ranker review game to show and teach Jenna about! 

First up everyone except Mark is now hip to the name of the new House Speaker, which is a gentleman named Mike Johnson. Problem is that Mike is known for being a nationalistic and trump supporting person. Putting those things together shows that the republicans are now all extremists and looking for ways to attack and hurt people. They can't accept their consequences for their attitudes and actions anymore and it is funny. This new man will be the ruin of the entire party. 

Also, Trump is definitely learning consequences for his actions but it seems he has given up on trying to pretend to campaign anymore and instead has resorted to his old "Don't Vote" message that failed him in the 2020 election. This time around everyone is hip to his dumb moves and Mark calls out that he is setting this up to use as an excuse AGAIN. Everything is an admission of guilt with this man. 

Finally it is Halloween and the guys decided to do a Ranker Review of the Most Terrifying horror figures of all time.  Sure there are the classics like Frankenstein and Dracula, but what about Jason and Freddy? Where does Michael hit the list, or does he at all? Who is weird that you are not thinking about? Tune in and listen as they breakdown and figure out who is the scariest of them all! Happy Halloween! 

Oct 21, 2023

We are not a podcast. We are a real radio show on FOX News Radio and CBS Radio affiliates. We are the best St. Louis political minds, and the best liberal minded show in the entire midwest! 

On this episode of The Qnow we welcome Pyrus Wade to the show to talk about his past, his upbringing in music and for him to play us some of his quality stuff...and he did not disappoint.  

First up, the boys welcome Pyrus to the show and get right into the topics. They are trying for a new speaker of the house but it is failing for Jim Jordan, who thought for sure he was a shoe in...BUT...he found out how painfully unpopular he was. So how did he react? He had some friends send aggresive and taunting texts to fellow republicans that he needed the vote from. He attacked their wives and all of it. It was craziness.

Next up we have Old Donnie Trump and the gag order that he immediately ignored. This man is doing all the wrong things and it is going to land him in jail...as if the treason shouldn't have already. Then guys discuss this trend. Then it is on to Music stylings of Pyrus Wade, a local St. Louis musician. Wade grows up in North St. Louis county but eventually ended up in California! Back in the lou, the man is getting his name out there and we are blessed to have him on our show! 

Finally, we do a tournament of pop culture, the 2023 Sweet 16 of Horror movies. We have 16 new movies battling it out this year for our horror love and the gents really put the time in to make sure the right movie is picked. Was your favorite on this list? How did it fare? All this and much more on this episode of the Qnow! 

Oct 14, 2023

We have made it to the finale of the Best TV Characters of all time!  Four men enter, one man leave! Who will reign supreme? 

Andy Echele shows up to help us decide this Tournament of Pop Culture. Andy is a old warrior at these things, so he should easily be able to help us figure out the winner. First up we discuss Israel and Hamas and the war erupting for the 1000th time in the middle east. This time they are really taking it to each other with 1000's of dead and bombings constant. But is this Bidens fault? Far from it. Mark and the guys discuss and give you a great perspective to view this from. 

Next up Andy brings up that he is not a fan of the $15 minimum wage and this sets Mark and Andy into an amazing discussion about current economics and who to blame for the high prices. Plus Mark figures out that Andy is viewing everything through rose colored glasses.Is food service jobs just for HS students or is it a normal job like Mark says...tune in and listen to this Epic battle.

Finally the TOPC is here. Best TV Character of All time. We are down to the final four! Cartman, Bundy, Powers and Kramer are gonna duke it out to see who really is the best TV character of all time. So who would you pick? Who is going to reign supreme? And if a job was only good 30% of the time....what job would that be? We take some guesses to end the show! 

Oct 7, 2023

Jenna Roberson who is running for Missouri HD-63 based in St. Charles County, MO is the guest on this episode of The QNow. 

First up, Mark and Jason introduce Jenna to the fans of The Qnow and discuss her upbringing in north county St. Louis and we find out that Mark and Jason are going to be going to the Field of nightmares Haunted Attraction at Brookdale farms in Eureka. This leads to Mark and Jay asking and finding out about Jenna's love or dislike of Halloween and the entire autumn vibe! 

Next up the peeps get into the politics and discuss Kevin McCarthy losing his speakership after he went out of his way to be his own worst enemy. Now he is without the power he wanted and others are in command of what is becoming a crazy time on Capitol Hill. This all comes on the heels of the Trump Fraud case in NY that already underway. Mark and the crew discuss Trump getting a gag order in court and being shut down by the judge. But is this really the end of Trump...Mark asks the real question...will Trump still get elected? 

Finally it is time for the final round of the Tournament of Pop Culture: Best TV Character of All TIme.  We have had some real heavyweight contenders in this tournament and this show leads to the final character to join the other 3 in the championship on the next show! So you are gonna wanna tune into that! Also the guys grill Jenna on the HOTSEAT and we find out a little more about this Candidate in Missouri!

Sep 30, 2023

On this episode of the show we are back to our old normal ways and decided to talk some politics. Mark Bland and Jason Kull are noht here to entertain you for a bit. 

First up, Trump is being ordered to dissolve his businesses and he is becoming unhinged it seems. Trump has gon eon record to state that he wants to imprison his rivals and anyone that he doesn't like, while charging them with trreason. Mark and Jay  discuss the likelihood of all of this and the fact that Trump is telling people out loud the mean things he wants to do to people. It's weird coming from a former president. 

Next up is the 3rd bracket round of the Tournament of Pop Culture: Best Tv characters of all time.  This time around we have Big bird entering the fray along with Arthur Spooner who is the chracter from King of Queens, but the guys mess up and think it is the name of the George Costanza's father Frank. So the guys discuss from the point of view of Frank in Seinfeld. Then again it's a simple mistake and people can write them on social media to let the guys know how dumb they are. 

Finally, what is the girlfriend effect? Well Mark and Jason discuss how having a girlfrined makes you more attractive to other females. Plus the guys discuss some local fare and try to fill in the blanks on some country songs! 

Sep 23, 2023

Jason Kull is back and ready to discuss what has been happening in the world. First up we discuss Biden and this impeachment mess that is plaguing the congress in 2023. Next we discuss Trump and how he is his own worst enemy moving forward. Plus we look into how Trump went on Meet the Press and destroyed his only defense in the election fraud cases. 

Then we turn our focus to the Tournament of Pop Culture and the new bracket for week 2 of our Best TV Character of All Time tournament. We have already had some surprises in week one and there are definitely some suprises on this show too! But is your chracter in the tournament yet? Did your favorite already lose? Tune in and find out. 

Finally the guys discuss some RED FLAGS people put out about what they will and won't accept in a person or significant other? Do you agree with these things. All this and more on The QNow. 

Sep 16, 2023

Jason Kull is out sick and Matt Krueger jumps in to co-host the show...and boy is this a huge show! 

First up...Mark has a few topics to discuss and the big one that everyone seems primed to talk about is Civil War and whether this is going to happen or not. But before that, We got an election that might set it off. If Trump wins we riot, if Trump loses they riot!  Sounds like war is going to happen anyway. But would Trump try and become a dictator of the people? Well we discuss that along with MTG and her wanting to have states Secede from the union. And it seems people that don't understand pain, really think they can withstand a bullet...and it mind numbingly dumb! 

Next the gents Take on the next great tournament of pop culture. Mark and company are going to do another 4 week breakdown competition to get to the final four of the BEST TV CHARACTERS of ALL TIME! Who makes the list? George Costanza might feel like a lock to make it. But so would Seinfeld himself! Plus you got Golden Girls and Roseanne and so many others...it's going to be a killer tournament. But we start off with the first bracket of 16 and try to figure out who the big winner is. Join us and see if your favorite makes it. 

Finally the boys discuss this AI created Coca cola flavor and Artificial Intelligence is going to shape the future of foods, and Lauren Boebert had a huge outburst at a Beetlejuice performance in Denver and was escorted out the theater. What is wrong with these congresspeople in America in 2023...it's gonna lead to the Wars of 2024! Tune in and join us on this amazing journey this week!

Sep 9, 2023

Well, well, well...It seems Mark and jason have been working hard and the show is showing the fruits of it's labor. People in other places wanna hear the show on their networks and we are happy to oblige.

Jason Kull and Mark Bland start off discussing about Covid and how people are worried about new lockdowns that just not coming. A Maryland school had a small outbreak of third graders and as usual the idiots took to social media to turn it into the next OUTBREAK scenario and it never comes to fruition. This is all after the men announce they are now SYNDICATED for the second time in history on multiple stations. Sure it's not national synidcation, but the show is moving in the right direction adding 102.5 WIBH to their already powerful 1280/105.3 KYRO! 

Next up the gents discuss the Gerogia Election Fraud Case. The first set of hearings has already begun and it seems the republicans are trying to get out in front of what they are denying is a conspiracy. There is only one problem Mark noticed...they referenced the "conspiracy" underoath in the first discussion, so it was actually a conspiracy. Trump has argued for years that it was never some conspiracy and everyone just over reacted and was lying and/or LIBERAL. Weird stance to take. This also comes with some idiocy from the lawyers of Sidney Powell and Mr. Chesebro. 

Fianlly it's time for another tournament of pop culture so people can get a taste at the new station of the types of fun we bring to the table. This tournament focuses on the upcoming halloween and fall season as we break down the best Horror Movie Sequels Battle Royale. This is not a list we created, but one that we are breaking down and discussing. Which horror movie franchise made the best sequel to date? Was it Halloween and Michael? How bout Freddy and Nightmare on Elm Street. Well join us and help us break these movies down and figure out who the big winner is! 

Sep 2, 2023

Brandon Saffel of the Variety Sports Network joins us on this episode of the The Qnow. Brandon dons his sports hat to discuss mnay topics.

First up, Mark and Jason Kull have to lay the ground work out for the Liberals moving forward in the coming months and year for the 2024 election. Mark has seen some things that he wants the libs to change moving forward on their trek to the next election. He wants less sharing of conservative content and more focus on building up the people that have a chance at the presidency...but who could that be. Tune in and find out. 

Next up, Brandon Saffel of the Variety Sports Network (search on youtube) joins the show to discuss the up coming football season...but that doesn't last long...before you know it the guys are talking baseball, tennis and all kinds of sports stories all over the world. But slowly they reign it in and discuss some of the bigger sports topics and what affects us today like the Pitching Clock in baseball and who will win the SuperBowl potentially.  Finally, as all guests do the first time, Brandon jumps in the HOTSEAT to find out a little more about Mr. Saffel and what makes him tick! 

Finally the gentleman discuss some politics regarding the GOP Debate they missed, Trumps infamous stupid mugshot and Mitch McConnell freezing up again while talking to the press. And then it happened...the guys decide to take on Ranker Review and do the Best Adam Sandler movies. Was the list strong? Was your movie on the list. Tune into the show and find out! 

Aug 21, 2023

Mark and Jason are solo for this show  and because of the Nascar's being popular, the guys have a smaller show this week..but lets get to the goods.

Trump has been indicted for a 4th time! This time in Georgia for Election interferrence in the 2020 election. It seems he did a lot of bad things and it's all falling down around him, Mark is confused at why he is still allowed to run for office in the face of these allegations.  The gents discuss his latest issues with the courts.

Next up, Mark has noticed a ton of energy drinks allowed for sale at local gas stations and grocery stores. There are so many they almost need their own aisle at this point. Mark and Jason discuss the fact that these drinks are being peddled to their kids and other adults that are sucking them up without realizing the potential conflicts and issues that might come from a heavy diet of those drinks. 

Finally, the state of missouri is starting to arrest parents who have their kids out of school too much. But then the guys go on to find out that nationally, 25% of kids who are of school age don't attend enough...and of that 25%,  91% of them don't go at all. This adds up to millions of kids in the Trump era, with all the lies and stupidity aren't even trying to educated themsleves and become better knowledged on ther things they they think or share. This is going to become problematic. 

Aug 12, 2023

On this episode of the The Qnow, the guys are joined by STL radio personality and DJ, Sam Hood. Sam went by DJ Cub for many years in the St. Louis Scene and is now here to talk with Mark and Jason about life and politics in 2023. 

First up, you couldn't escape it. There was a Riverboat Melee that happened in Montgomery, AL between white people and black people. The entire nation is talking about the racial tensions after the events that unfolded. A security guard asked a family of white boaters to move their boat and from there, everything went crazy! People jumping into the fight, people swimming over to help off other boats. It was a wild scene and even CROCS weren't exempt from the issue. But people are misreading this situation. Mark and the gentlemen talk about this issue. 

Next up is the Tournament of Pop culture: Best Breakfast Cereal! Yeah you know all the players, and there might even be some you are not thinking about. But who better to break this down than people that love food! But the real question is how deep does this go? do perrenial favorites like Lucky charms and Cheerio's walk away with the win...or do some overlooked cereals really bring in the taste buds? Take a listen to find out who reigns supreme in this new tournament. 

Finally, Trump has now stated that he doesn't even want to live in America, where he is running for president. So at that point, is Trump running just to be an A-hole and push dumb conspiracies and create as much turmoil as he can? It sure seems like there is no value if you don't even want to live in the country where you are expected to live to be president. 

Aug 5, 2023

Donadl Trump is a problem. Jason Kull and Mark Bland are here to discuss the newest in what is the trend for summer 2023, Trump illegal moves coming back to bite him in the arse. And Mark and Jason are here for every detail that is coming out daily about this. Now the republicans are full out going after Hunter Biden (the son and not the president) because they are mad at him. Let them be. None of the world is worried about people with no power. They are worried about the seditionist that is trying desparately to get back into that seat to create more problems for normal people just living their lives.

But before any of this can be dsicsussed...a blast from the recent past calls into the show phone number and decides he wants to talk with Mark. The commissioner of the MMWA Shaft, calls into the show to discuss the past match with Mr. Bland and Mr. Kull, but to also bare warning for the future of Mark Bland with MMWA. Does this go well or horrible...you listen and let us know.

Finally, Mark has access to a list of the hardest Would you rather questions that could exist. Now are they really the hardest ones on earth to decipher? Possibly, but also possibly not. Mark and Jason go through a group of questions and we find out how hard they can be! 

Jul 29, 2023

Another week and more things to discuss! 

First up, it seems that the complaining about the age of these electors falls on deaf ears. Mitch McConnell who has been the focus of these age ideals found himself in a predicament this past week when he froze up at the podium and people were unsure what to think. Mitch ended up being fine but it was really odd and re-ignited this idea that there migh tneed to be term limits and age limits on some of our older nominees wach election cycle. 

Next, there are some amazing movies that you could pair together, but the best things happen naturally. Well Mark and Jason Kull are here to break down which weekend in movie history had the best two movie tandem release. Maybe it was a weekend in the 1990's during the summer...or maybe a thanksgiving release weekend in the 2000's... we have a Ranker list of the best and we are gonna figure out who reigns supreme for a double movie release in history...

That Ranker review comes on the heal of the release of Barbie and Oppenheimer. Which is the focal point of our last thing. Is the Barbie movie a bad thing to see cause it's about Barbie? Why are so many conservatives worried about going to a movie they can just ignore and not pay to go see? Well in their world you have to have things to complain about, and if everyone is fine with Barbie, then it's not manly or cool enough for republicans. So of course it becomes point of contention, but like many of their things...does it have legs? Nope! 

Jul 22, 2023

Drew Pinson is back to hang out with Mark and Jason and this time he brings some spicy music takes with him...

First up, Mark and Jason welcome Drew back to the show and the gentlmen discuss how things been in the world of music on Drews podcast Notes & Letters. Drew then asks the guys what is the best cover song that they ever heard? And what was the worst cover song they have ever heard, conversely.  Next up Mark realizes that him and Jason are underutilized in the word of politics and that Fox News could use guest appearances from Mark and Jason and it would boost their ratings on a national look. 

Next up the guys discuss some politics and what is going on in the world! Joe Biden and the Biden campaign decided to strike a littel early for campaigning and put out their first video of the 2024 election. It featured MTG just speaking about Joe and Kamala and the things they are doing, then it says they approved the message. Castrating any value in MTG, they used her word sagainst her and it was Amazing! And then Jason Aldean finds himself in a bit of controversy from his song "Try that in a small town" in reference to anything where the rest of the world is having the issues. So in his small towns, everyone knows each other so nobody does anything. In big cities things aren't quaint and easy. Though Jason thinks its because small towns talk tough. The guy figure out, Jason is not from a too small of a town and things are the same everywhere all the time...some people are just more prejudice. 

Finally, another Ranker review comes to pass. This time around there are HUGE movie franchizes that exist and they bring tons of joy to the world. But is your franchise you are bought in on, the same quality as your friends favorite. Well Ranker had them listed 1-10 and we decided to find out which ones matter and which ones just don't.

With summer in full swing, there is no better time to bring on future hopefuls for the Missouri House than now. Ray Reed joins Mark Bland and Jason Kull on this episode of the show! 

Ray Reed is running for 83rd House District in St. Louis after he was accosted and punched in the chest by a police officer in St. Louis County. Reed comes on the show to relay his story to everyone and try to bring about police reform and change.  Ray discusses the situation, what the reprecussions have been and what is the outcome he desires. 

After that it is on to discussing Donald Trump and his interview with Bret Baier. Trump sat down with the former president and rip off a list of his former employees who are considered "the best" by him and his supporters. The list was massive with tons of people fired or let go by the president while he was in office. Baier also shouted the names that Trump gave the people when he would tweet and say bad things about them after their tenure. The guys discuss Trump and how this makes him look. After that another STL discussion with police regarding a officer that already got a $300k payout and now the city of St. Louis wants it back.

Do you like MEME's? What about Star Trek? Well then this episode is designed for you sorta! 

This week on the show, Mark and Jason, welcome Niko Howard from the Andorian Memeing Consortium on Facebook. A group of 23,000 like minded Trekker's that enjoy a great Meme! And great meme's are what they design and sell to the world. We sit down with Niko and find out where this all comes from, and we discuss some Star Trek lore along the way...but it's not all we discuss.

We break into the mind of Niko to find out where he sits on the political spectrum and then we get down and dirty discussing the latest arrest and arraignment of former president Donald Trump. Is he guilty? Why is there always this call to arms for Donald Trump? Maybe Donald is just blind to the reality of his criminal ways. The guys discuss and figure out why these supporters just keep on rocking with him. 

Finally, Niko is a new guest so he has to jump into the Hotseat and answer his 5 questions...but not before we do an impromptu Ranker Review Game of horror since we found out our guest is a Horror buff like Mark and Matt Krueger (also in for the show).  So as a play to our guest, we decided to break down the best Stephen King Novels/Works of all time. Who sits #1? Is Niko...and Jay....and Matt... and Mark all cool with the Ranker order for this topic. Listen in and find out!

Chips and Salsa....Chips and Salsa....we will coe back to that! 

Well it is TIME!!! WE have reached the finale of the BEST TEEN MOVIE of all TIME and bring this Tournament to a close. We had a blast working with everyone on this one and excited to welcome Matt Krueger back to help us choose the winner of the entire bracket! Jason Kull as usual plays the final determining factor but you will see why when you listen to the show. 

Also...Missouri goes full retard (and you never go full retard) like Florida and decides that the 14 people in the entire state that might be affected currently by Trans Care, well they can't have it anymore. And this reminds Mark of the Duggars and the IBLP and how christian fundamentalism works. It's all about controlling minute things to look like you are in power over others. But you really aren't, you are just an A-hole for being trashy people. This also rears it's ugly head in a emplyment discussion Mark and the guys have regarding some information that has come to light.

Finally, Mike Pence has decided he is going to throw his hat in the ring for President of the US and on his way to the pulpit, Pence threw Trump under a bus extra hard....and he deserved it. Then we play the Ranker Review game of Best Snacks between meals. And Chips and Salsa seems to be hang up for these weird dudes. They chose chips and salsa over some crazy delicious snacks...find out who wins out in the end!
