Do any of the cast fall into these locations… find out on the last Q of 2016!

Mark Bland and Jason Kull discuss the transition and some of the aura around the picks and moves that Donald Trump, the President-Elect, is making.

Mark explains in great detail the three things that led to Hillary’s defeat – and they aren’t easy to swallow thoughts for most liberals and moderates.
Jason Kull and Mark Bland are back with some audio goodness for your ears. First up is the reason why Hell Froze Over… the Chicago Cubs won the WORLD SERIES!

Producer Bobby and Jason Kull sit in to discuss this election that has become a complete carnival with the latest Billy Bush/Donald Trump pervert tape that was released.
