"Politics, Politics, Politics....I like it when you mix it up or even ignore politics all together."
The amount of times Mark has heard that regarding the show is absolutely mind blowing, but still a potentially fair assessment. Well this is a show that will not disappoint at all.
Chris McQuillen, aka The Toy man, jumps in with Mark Bland and Gary Weed to discuss pop culture and nostalgia. Chris runs the ToyMan Toy Shows in the St. Louis Area and has been doing it since the 1980s/90s. Bringing in thousands a year to fawn over toys and all artifacts from the world of pop culture, Chris and his team have consistently put on multiple shows a year giving collectors all the opportunities that they could need within the area.
First up the gentlemen discuss how social media has impacted a traditionally offline thing. What new collectible toys and nostalgia has grown out of it and what have been some of the benefits of the internet on toys and Chris' toy show directly.
Next Mark talks about his recent trip to the Lake of the Ozarks (in Missouri) and how he found an old school arcade that has tons of the games that were throwbacks to the 50's-70's. It brought Mark back down memory lane, take a listen and see what grabs you.
Finally, Gary brings up the name of some shows on netflix and around currently that people need to check out and discuss. Gary throws the list at Mark and Chris and they break down what they like and what they obviously haven't seen.
A unique trip through pop culture and fun on this episode of the Q!
