Producer Bobby and Mark announce that they are currently looking for a new co-host of The Q. They take on the newest controversy hitting the 2016 campaign trail… HILLARY’S HEALTH! Is it something to worry about or just banter from the right? Bobby then takes on the well-known rules of survival regarding animals and life. The two get into a deep discussion about the applicable ones and the ones they thought were right, when actually they were wrong.
Colin Kaepernick decides to not stand for the national anthem and the USA goes into shock. Was it a good idea or bad one? Producer Bobby is here and he has a lot of pent up NFL aggression to take out, see what he has to say. Finally Mark discusses the aftermath and value of Donald Trump visiting Mexico right before he throws the Mexicans under a US bus with his Arizona Immigration speech.
Darian Wigfall is the head of a local hip hop and entertainment collective called The Far Fetched Collective. He also had the pleasure, or lack of pleasure, of being front row for multiple days in 2014 during the Ferguson Riots. Darian comes in to sit down and discuss if black and white people have made strides in the two years since Ferguson. Also, with the out of control reaction Milwaukee had to a situation that was clearly not what they thought, where does fake outrage for the sake of being angry play into all of this in the current climate?
Matt Krueger joins the show to discuss his upcoming wedding, but it takes a weird twist when Mark starts asking some personal questions regarding their relationship. To be honest, Matt only came on the show to get his hat back. Then the guys switch gears and discuss the fresh Milwaukee Riot situation that was spurred on by the fact that an armed suspect was shot and killed by a black police officer… even though the entire riot was based on the belief that the cop was white and the subject was black and unarmed. Find out where our host and guest fall regarding their opinions on this situation.
Mark is joined by St. Louis entrepreneur Alex Elias to discuss his upbringing and thoughts on the local entrepreneurial community. But the main story is about the $20m lawsuit filed by the Arch Defenders against Ferguson, regarding the arrest of 4 people during the 2014 rioting. The rioters claim it was an injustice and unfair attack on their rights, but they were let off in the end… so does the lawsuit have merit? Plus a little Trump/Clinton talk with Alex defending his claims that Hillary is polarising.
‘The Donald’ (Trump) is not doing well in the polls… the controversial presidential candidate is losing by 10-15 points behind Hillary Clinton. Mark and Producer Bobby talk about the point spread and why it mirrors the actual vibe and feel of the USA currently. Also, Trump decided to be mean to a young mother this week and the two discuss whether he was in the right or wrong.
Sean Vincent is a professional wrestler and he jumps in to discuss politics, the Democratic National Convention, his upbringing and how it has affected his adulthood and some of his views on it. Sean also talks about his recent Facebook live video, where he decided to tackle the topic of race relations in the US and grabbed a good friend to sit down and talk about the issue in a very open manner. Mark and Sean touch on some of these subjects and talk about their value in 2016.
Comedian and friend of the show Jake Ashlock stops by to talk politics. Melania Trump, the Donald’s wife, decided to step on stage at the RNC and give a speech. The only problem is that it wasn’t completely her speech. It seems that Donald, his party and their attitude is all about walking all over people, taking what they want and being generally dismissive and disrespectful. Mark and Jake discuss.
Producer Bobby is back and the game sweeping the nation is Pokemon Go. It has kids and adults tripping over themselves all over the world. More chaos in the streets of the USA as officers are killed in Dallas and Baton Rouge on the heels of the two police shootings in Baton Rouge and Minneapolis. Is it a summer thing? What is the end game for everyone in this situation?
It’s been a turbulent week in the USA with police getting shot at and two men getting killed by police officers. The Black Lives Matters discussion resurfaces, which came about from good ole St. Louis, MO a few years back with the Mike Brown/Ferguson situation. Guest Justin ‘Deyemofo’ Deming joins as they also look at the first world problem of Mark and Little Caesars.
