John Scheper makes his return to the podcast, just to play hero and have to leave in the middle of it!
First up, Scheper joins Mark and Jason Kull to discuss the newest things in the world of FOX NEWS which is a huge lawsuit and Tucker Carlson getting fired for being an a-hole. Fox News gets fines for being liars and finally, Don Lemon also gets let go from CNN for being an A-hole too. What is it with all these A-holes in broadcasting!
Next up, Mark and Jason discuss Elon Musk losing his mind and de-verifying all the accounts on his platform so he can try and grift idiots to give him (a BILLIONAIRE) more money to pretend he is some sort of fake god in the online world. Instead we talk about his extremely creepy meeting of his wife Grimes with a 17 year age diffence, meaning in when she was 17....Elon was a lustful 34 and well outside the "dating" age appropriate in the 2000's. But we let those weird things go and discuss rockets that blow up! Plus Ted Cruz gets caught talking insurrection on a phone days before Jan 6th. Nothing will happen because everyone wants CIVIL WAR and death to happen so they keep allowing the fascism.
And finally, we do a Ranker Review game of The Best TV Characters of the 1980's. Like the Disney one, we learn what time period we live in and what makes it way to 2023 versus what was legit the top TV characters of the 1980s. But the final push proves we had the right ones at the top of the list in Hindsight...but the ommissions list was deafening. Great people that didn't even get a shot.
All this and more on this epsiode of The Qnow!
Well Well Well, it seems FOX NEWS is in some hot water. They were accused of lying to the public and defrauding american viewers with regards to the 2020 election....LIKE THE QNOW told you in the first place. Then it was gonna go to trial and they decided to quickly settle all the BS before going to Trial. But it gets worse....there are more lawsuits coming down the pipe and the other players have stated they are not going to settle and will make sure all the dirty laundry from FOX gets aired out in court! So that is the big news of the Week on this episode of the Qnow. FOX/FAUX news got in a ton of trouble for lying like Mark and Jason told you it would.
Also on this episode, Mark is joined by Marcus Boston and Jason Kull, but they also welcome Christopher Miles a ref with MMWA wrestling to the show to discuss his show Issues with Wrestling...his podcast where each week they delve into the world of Pro-wrestling to discuss specific themes that people may or may not be paying attention to in the world of Wrestling. Coming up on the next show, Mark, our host, is joining Chris to discuss politics in the world of wrestling and how the two worlds co-exist with the advent of social media and the internet!
Finally, it's time for another Tournament of Pop Culture: Best Snack Foods! So yeah, do you ever wonder if Snickers can stack up to Potatoe Chips? What about Trail mix...can it take on a Nutri-Grain bar? Well you are about ready to find out as the squad pulls up a seat to the proverbial table and breaks down 32 snack foods and which one becomes to almighty king of all snacks! People this might surprise you and then again it may not....find out all of this on the newest episode of the show!
What an exciting week with a lot going on and ton to get to. On this episode we are joined by Jason Kull as well as our friend of the show, Emil Jay!
First up, Elon has been working overtime to make things worse and worse for Twitter. It seems like he is doing it to devalue and eventually bankrupt the company in some form or fashion and turn it into a write off. But before he gets there he wants to change the company marquee in San Fran to read as "Titter" and he changed his name to "Harry Bolz". All this comes on the heels of another Trump interview with Tucker Carlson where he blames the USA for the Nord Stream, as if we are the problem in the world...yet he wants to run the country again? Seems like conflicting interests at this point.
Next up, Game Changer Wrestling is coming to St. Louis and we are blessed to have the voice of GCW on the show with us Emil Jay! Emil jumps on to discuss a little about the recent popularity of GCW since and during Covid. Plus Emil gives us a little background into his rise within the business and what drew him to it! And if that wasn't enough, they got some heavy hitters and classic memebers of the roster they are bringing to St. Louis to tear down the house at POPS!
Finally, We do another Ranker Review Game! This time we are focused on the Best Martial Arts Actors/Actresses of ALL TIME! So of course you know Bruce Lee, Chuck Norris and Jet Li are going to be there...or are they? There are a ton of great martial artists in the world and there are even some people you might not be thinking about like Wesley Snipes (think Blade). We break down the list as it stands and figure out if this list truly holds water!
Welp it happened. So many people knew it would and so did the Qnow. Donald Trump was arrested and arraigned this past week for his corruption. Is it the large sword that democrats and anti-trump people alike expected to take him down, no, it's just the Southern district of NY. But it's a start. Now a former president of the USA is a arrested criminal and has to deal with the legal system he so went out of his way with for the SCOTUS to try and change the world for everyone. Oh well, too bad...we will discuss!
Bud light has done more to help cut down alcoholism with their newest campaign than AA has done in decades of work! Dylan Mulvaney, a trans activist and influencer, was the focus of a new campaign on inclusiveness for Anheuser Busch. They put Dylan on the front of a Bud Light can...and that sent MAGA/Trump Criminals/Conservatives into a tizzy because they refuse to drink Bud Light now! They hate that there is inclusiveness with Bud Light, some random company, and that also made famed rapper Kid Rock take to social media to shoot some cases up. Well that brought more attention to it and it's just not working out for the red staters. We discuss.
Finally we do another Ranker Review Game...this time it is Best Disney Animated movie. Now the rules state we must take the list as it stands and break it down. It is whatever the current standings are for that category. We noticed some huge admissions were not on the list. They were ranked lower...but in 2023, the way people view movies and their own nostalgia is taking a part in this. Join us to find out the best disney animated movie and if it should be #1!
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH....another shooting in Nashville and this times more elementary school children are dead. Republicans and Liberals alike are looking for answers and wanting to blame people they can get to, and not people that are guilty of anything.
Matt Krueger and Jason Kull join Mark Bland as they discuss and break down this idea of school shootings and what can be done at this point to stop things. It seems to everyone like they have tried the "no new laws, don't make gun people unhappy about the constitution" thing and here we are again with more dead babies and families torn apart by the inconsiderate attitudes of those unwilling to look at other countries that have made the step, well before today. The guys talk about everything with regard to the Nashville shooting. But how far is too far?
This week the gents try a new game called the Ranker Review Game. They go to ranker page and based off the current standings, figure out if people/place/things and pop culture are on the edge of being 100% correct or if their margins and rankings are not on the same page. This first episode of the Ranker game focuses on the The Coolest Movie Star in Acting currently in 2023! Who stands out overall as the coolest actor/actress in the business of making movies! Where does the Rock rank? Is Brad Pitt on the list or not? All this and more will be discussed on this first show playing the game!
Finally Elon Musk is slowly bringing all of his businesses down and many have lost value over the last year. Twitter started at $44 Billion and now Musk himself valuates it at $20 Billion and people feel that is too high. He has a ton on his plate, and companies that have typically done well in his portfolio (Tesla) are also feeling the pain. SO what gvies...well the guys discuss. And also there is some bullying issues at the middle and high school levels in America and the guys try to figure out what is the determining factor for how these things are handled.
