Q With A View

Every Tuesday night at 9pm Eastern/8pm Central on FTRRadio.com, SmoosieQ and her co-hosts, Mark “Dainty RINO” Warner and Jason “The Voice” Dibler, bring you sass, snark, silliness and occasional serious discourse from a right-of-center vantage point.

Q With A View #151 -

– It’s Episode 151 of “Q With A View,” and Jason is still off galavanting around Africa, so Duke once again rides shotgun with Susie. They cover a little bit of everything, from Jason’s stomach bug (which ISN’T Ebola) to the weather, to baseball, to MiniQ’s new adventures in driving, to dirt track racing, to Duke getting buried in GIF’s by his fellow Fraserites. Then they move onto the heavier stuff. Like The Mooch. And all the intrigue at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. Susie also shares her recent RedState piece about how Charlie Gard WILL make a difference. The show covers lots of ground. It’s worth the listen, so click the link and check it out!

Q With A View #150 -

For Episode 150, and while Jason is off on safari, “Q With A View” host Susie Moore is joined by very special co-host David Stephens a/k/a “The Beau.” They cover a lot of ground – from the recent record-setting heat in STL, to the fizzling Cardinals, to the promise of football on the horizon (including a detailed discussion on the whole “Color Rush” concept.) They discuss David’s upcoming elk hunting trip in Colorado, and they review two very different films: “Dunkirk” and “Office Christmas Party.” On the politics front, they discuss Jeff Sessions’ impending doom, and why Susie’s reluctantly feeling compelled to defend him. They also cover an interesting — and very thorough — piece about Russian oligarchs, money laundering, and some of the red flags surrounding Donald Trump. There’s the recent (though somewhat questionable) poll suggesting Kid Rock could give Debbie Stabenow a run for the money over her Senate seat. And they wrap things up with a fun look at the many cliches of HGTV. It’s a fun show and worth the listen, so click the link!

Q With A View #149 -

– Now it’s Jason’s turn for vacation! While Mr. Dibler is off on Safari, Executive Producer Thomas LaDuke commandeers the co-pilot chair and he and Susie are off to the races. They talk weather, baseball (of course), the All-Star Game, and tip their hats to Martin Landeau and George Romero who both passed over the weekend. Then they move on to cars, and sinkholes, and why going to the gym is bad for your health — or, at least, your property’s health. Speaking of sinkholes, Duke’s fair city of Fraser, MI, had its own this past December, and that prompts a very lively discussion of all the goings-on in Fraser. It’s local politics at its finest! (Not every day you hear detailed discussions of Mayor Bubblebutt!) They also have some thoughts on the rumors that Caitlynn Jenner is considering a run for the US Senate from California. Susie shares her latest piece from RedState, noting the GOP contenders lining up to challenge Claire McCaskill for her Senate seat. Duke’s amped up for this show and you’ll be, too – click the link and give it a listen. Then share it!

Q With A View #148 -

Episode 148 of “Q With A View,” in which Susie waxes poetic about her recent adventures in Colorado, which included white water rafting, paddle boarding, a concert (featuring her favorite band – “The Avett Brothers”) at Red Rocks, and plenty of other “ooo’s” and “ahhh’s” over an undeniably beautiful part of the country. They ponder the fact that we remain one nation with 50 distinct states, each with their own identity. Susie shares her latest article from RedState which points out the double standards employed by those who are barking about the dress code in the Speaker’s Lobby at the Capitol. Basically, it’s a fun “back from vacation” episode and one we think you’ll enjoy. Click it and share it!

Q With A View #146 -

Episode 146 of “Q With a View” features hosts Susie Moore and Jason Dibler celebrating the Summer Solstice, and Susie bemoaning her beleaguered Cardinals. They move beyond baseball to golf, with some discussion about the US Open, the scary blimp crash, and the awkward moment following Brooks Koepka’s win in which Joe Buck stuck his foot in his mouth. They ponder the intelligence levels of those Americans who believe chocolate milk comes from brown cows, and Susie expounds upon the “Scandalizing Pants of the FNC Sisterhood.” They switch gears a bit to reflect upon the recent, horrific shooting of Congressman Steve Scalise and several of his companions while they practiced for the annual Congressional Baseball game, just how much of a role rhetoric plays in violent acts such as that. They also mull whether two wrongs do, indeed, make a right and justify the recent protesting/interruption of a play in Central Park by “alt-right” Trump supporters objecting to its portrayal of Caesar as Trump. All this and more can be YOURS if you’ll just click the link! Oh – and be sure to share it, too!

In Episode 145 of “Q with a View,” Jason is back and – not only that – he and Susie are doing the show together, as in sitting right next to each other! Yes, Jason stopped off for a visit on his way back from his college reunion. He and Susie chat about his travels and their visit. Susie recounts her recent harrowing float trip. They congratulate the Penguins on their Stanley Cup, and lament the sorry state of the National League Central – where NO team seems to want to take the lead. And Susie gives her review of David McCullough’s “1776.” They’re joined by special guest Congressman Trey Hollingsworth, who represents Indiana’s 9th District. Congressman Hollingsworth shares the reasons he wanted to go to Washington, what he’s found since he’s arrived, why he supports term limits and the positive steps Congress is taking via the CHOICE Act and the POLICE Act. Susie and Jason then discuss the fallout from James Comey’s testimony last week and look forward to Jeff Sessions’ testimony. It’s a great show – be sure to listen and then share the link!!

Q With A View #144 -

Episode 144 of “Q with a View” features Susie Moore and her Executive Producer, Thomas LaDuke, trading witty banter…or, at least, banter. They talk graduations, summer weather, sick doggies, baseball and Wonder Woman and also give a shout out to their pal Jay Caruso, who made an appearance on “Morning Joe” to kick off the week. On a more somber note, they reflect on Memorial Day and Duke’s recent RedState piece which pointedly asks if it still matters. (Yes it does!) They discuss the recent spate of terror attacks in England (and elsewhere). Then they shift back to happier talk, as Susie notes the amazing recovery of a friend’s son, from devastating spinal cord injury to walking across the stage at his high school graduation. They wrap up the show with a nod to U2’s recent appearance on Jimmy Kimmel – which included not only a moving performance of “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” and Bono’s explanation to Kimmel of why they truly love America and what it stands for. It’s a great show, so be sure to give it a listen and share it with friends!

Q With A View #143 -

Jason’s back for Episode 143 of “Q with a View” and shares a bit of history in honor of the 40th Anniversary of the performing and visual arts school where he teaches (including some of its notable graduates.) Jason and Susie chat about their upcoming plans because summer is almost upon us! Sadly, they note the recent passing of Soundgarden’s Chris Cornell and of Roger Ailes. Susie’s “Q with a Review” is of “Guardians of the Galaxy – 2” – a fun, enjoyable romp, and one with ties to Missouri. On a somber note, they cover the heartbreaking news out of Manchester of the explosion at the Ariana Grande concert. Then they lighten a mood a bit with special guest Brad Slager (a/k/a “MartiniShark”) who covers the Hollywood and entertainment beat for Red State and has some great drink recipes to share, as well. They talk about Hollywood’s utter lack of tolerance for even the faintest whiff of non-progressive thought. And wonder how awful SNL would be this season had Hillary won. It’s a good show – give it a listen and see what you think!

Q With A View #142 -

Episode 142 of “Q with a View” features guest host Josh Gillespie subbing in for Jason Dibler. He and Susie have much to talk about! Josh recounts his latest adventures in running. They talk Mother’s Day, some baseball, including Jeter, and a little Hollywood, with a nod to Powers Boothe in light of his recent passing. Susie recounts her for Ray onto terrestrial radio. Then they get down to the nitty-gritty. Comey’s firing, and the struggles this administration seems to have with messaging. And the big bombshell of the day: reports of Trump’s loose lips while meeting with the Russians and the difficulty in ferreting out the truth when all sources are suspect. It’s a great show.

Q With A View 141 -

In Episode 141 of “Q with a View,” Jason continues his battle with the Bronchasaurus…er…bronchitis. Susie recounts the day the lights went out – power outages in large office buildings aren’t conducive to productive work days. Susie mourns the elimination of her Blues from the NHL Playoffs, and the crew ponders the unintended double-header between the Cubs and Yankees. “Q with a Review” covers “Logan’s Run,” a 70’s “classic,” that leaves Susie scratching her head. Susie also shares her take on a recent foreign policy/national security event sponsored by Heritage featuring James Carafano and former Senator Jim Talent, and why, Trumpskeptic though she may be, she’s a little more at ease with the Trump administration in the FP realm. They also cover Clarence Thomas’ recent turn as keynote speaker at the STL Bar Association Law Day. And the sharp (though not surprising) decline in enrollment at MIZZOU following all the hubbub emanating from the November 2015, hunger strike. They mull the Macron victory in France, Monday’s Senate hearings, including the testimony of Sally Yates and James Clapper. And Susie explains why she’s pleased with Trump’s pick for the 6th Circuit – a former classmate of hers. Be sure to click the link and give it a listen. Then share!
