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 #116 -

It’s Episode 116 of Q with a View and hosts Susie Moore and Jason Dibler are back, technology gods be damned! Jason recaps the beginning of the school year. Susie got a year older and got to spend a day volunteering at a charity golf tournament for LoveU2Pieces.org. They talk baseball (as the Cubs battle the Cards) and football – fantasy and fauxragy. And Susie reviews “Sully” the latest Tom Hanks flick which recounts the harrowing water landing and bureaucratic repercussions of US Airways Flight 1549 in January, 2009. Then they move on to “The Parade of Deplorables” and deconstruct Hillary’s 47% of Bitter Clingers can’t Read My Lips Moment. And, of course, they don their stethoscopes in an effort to figure out what’s ailing Hillary. They also discuss the recent earthquake (Oklahoma’s fault.) Lastly, they reflect on 9/11 – 15 years later. Good stuff – be sure to click the link and listen.

Q With A View #115 -

In Episode 115 of Q with a View, hosts Susie Moore & Jason Dibler start out with their usual catching up. Jason recounts his recent (official) move to the Big D. They talk “back to school” and reunions and being old. Susie bemoans her beloved Cards while Jason enjoys his beloved Cubs. They also chat about the Olympics. Eventually they get around to politics – Susie reads and excerpt of Peggy Noonan’s recent column “The Week They Decided He Was Crazy,” they ponder DJT’s repeated unforced errors – including his controversial 2A comment – the weirdness of Sadiq Mateen showing up at a Clinton rally, and, not surprisingly, the fact that the “I Side With” quiz now points to Gary Johnson. And, as it was the two year anniversary of the Michael Brown shooting, they reflected on Ferguson, its aftermath and the haunting question of “Where Do We Go From Here?” It’s another good show, so click the link and give a listen.

Q With A View #113 -

Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night…Q with a View returns! Hosts Susie Moore and Jason Dibler were back in the saddle again, and had some catching up to do! Susie gave an update on Mama Q, who recently underwent quintuple bypass surgery, Jason reflected on his impending move to the Big D, and Susie gave a brief review of her recent jaunts to the Muny to catch The Wizard of Oz, 42nd Street, The Music Man and Young Frankenstein — while keeping the audience apprised of the threatening storm outside. Thankfully, the storm didn’t knock the show off the air, and Susie and Jason were able to ponder the dumpster fire in Cleveland, including the intrigue provided by listening to the police scanners and the ongoing efforts by law enforcement to keep the numerous factions of protesters from maiming one another. Law enforcement was the theme of the evening, as they discussed the recent spate of police shootings, including the one which occurred in Susie’s (metaphorical) back yard. On a brighter note, they shared some of the sweeter moments that have occurred, where protesters and police have found some common ground and focused on letting love win the day. It’s a great show, so please click the link and listen!

Q With A View #112 -

On this special Wednesday Night edition of Q with a View, hosts Susie Moore and Jason Dibler return with a LIVE version of the show. Susie gloated over the Cards’ sweep of the Cubs (natch) and shared why she doesn’t think it’s outright nuts to establish an NHL franchise in Las Vegas (despite Jason’s skepticism). They talk Avett Brothers (and how it’s really not possible to DRIVE to Riviera Maya), “Wizard of the Oz” and Guys and Dolls (and why Marlon Brando was never considered a triple threat.) After the break, they discuss “Little Marco’s” re-entry into the Senate race in Florida, the Democrats’ “sit-in” on the House Floor, the DOJ’s questionable efforts at issuing “redacted” transcripts of the Orlando shooter’s 911 calls, the recent revelation that Trump may not be quite so flush (financially) and the whispered rumors of a convention revolt. Later, Susie resurrects the Susie’s Law segment to explain why both Sonia Sotomayor and Antonin Scalia garnered the ever-coveted blind squirrel designation (compliments of their shared support of the 4th Amendment). Lastly, they discuss how the future is NOW (under the guise of driverless buses roaming the streets of DC.) It’s an action-packed hour of show, so be sure to click the link and listen. And then share it!!

Q With A View #109 -

Episode 109 of “Q with a View” features hosts Susie Moore and Jason Dibler as they talk end-of-school, the Blues’ playoff prospects and musical theater. They’re joined by FTR Host Emeritus Josh “Silk” Gillespie to talk about Indiana and….sigh…Indiana. Susie ribs Josh for the less-than-a-nano-second victory announcement for Trump, and the three of them ponder a GOP with Donald Trump as its effective front man. Josh also dishes on some of the other IN races. Mostly, they just enjoy catching up. It’s a fun show, so be sure to give it a listen!

Q With A View #108 -

Episode 108 of “Q with a View” features hosts Susie Moore and Jason Dibler catching up on the day’s crazy weather, Susie reveling in the Blues’ 1st Round victory over the Blackhawks, a discussion about some good books and reminiscing about Columbo and the glory days of episodic television. They check in on the day’s primary results (no shockers there), and Susie does her impersonation of Trump dogging John Kasich’s eating habits and denouncing the evil colloooooooooooosion between Kasich and Cruz (which is more than a day late and a dollar short – and which Kasich can’t even manage to own.) They note that Millennials have now surpassed the Baby Boomers, applaud Lena Dunham’s announcement to leave the US for Canada, enjoy Harriet Tubman’s anticipated addition to the $20 and mull over Colorado’s booming economy. It’s a show filled with infotainment, so click the link, listen and share!

Q With A View #106 -

Episode 106 of “Q with a View” features hosts Susie Moore and Jason Dibler lamenting the crazy, busy, hectic whirl of life and the burn out of Election 2016, while celebrating the return of Baseball – now that it’s in full swing – and crossing their fingers that the Blues can find their way past the Blackhawks and Round 1 of the playoffs. They note the somewhat delicious irony of two of Donald Trump’s most ardent supporters (namely his son Eric and daughter Ivanka) not being able to vote for him in next week’s New York primary due to their failure to register in time as Republicans, and ponder Paul Ryan’s absolutely, positively definitive averment that he will no-way, no-how, be seeking or accepting the GOP nomination this time around. And they ruminate on the – SURPRISE! – double-standard which affords a pass to Democratic politicians for making inappropriate racially charged jokes which would see Republican politicians run out of town on a rail. It’s an hour (or 54 minutes) chock full of entertaining insight, so be sure to click the link, give it a listen, and share with your friends!

Q With A View #105 -

It’s Episode 105 of “Q with a View” and Susie and Jason are back from a brief hiatus. Susie recounts her adventures in Chi-Town, they revel in the fact that Spring has sprung, and welcome the Boys of Summer back, as Baseball Season has officially returned! They offer up some prayers and best wishes for FTR’s beloved Tom Reynolds who’s been laid up with a bad bug that’s had him hospitalized. Hoping for a speedy recovery for our Beregond!!! Wisconsin primary returns come in throughout the show and there’s some serious discussion re: the ugliness this election cycle seems to have brought out from surprising corners. Susie shares some of the insights she gleaned from her recent attendance at the Talk on Terrorism – at Home and Abroad – given by Jim Carafano of Heritage and Sen. Jim Talent. And they have a little fun at the end of the show discussing all the celebs who are turning 50 this year. It’s a fun show, so be sure to click the linky and give it a listen!

Q With A View #104 -

Episode 104 of “Q with a View” features Co-Host Jason Dibler fresh off Spring Break. He and Susie Moore chat about his relaxing week off and upcoming Easter plans. They chat NCAA basketball (or rather, Jason grumbles about it) and baseball. And Susie reveals her closeted past as a gamer geek. They turn to politics and the current level of rhetoric – which has some people resorting to Pontius Pilate comparisons in order to shame others into voting the way they think they should. A nod is given to Trump for securing the coveted Chachi (or Charles in Charge if you’re under the age of 40) endorsement. And a nod to Bill Clinton for (accidentally?) acknowledging “the awful legacy of the last 8 years.” They also talk about the horrific attacks in Brussels – and the sad realization that this seems to becoming “the new norm.” Meanwhile, President Obama continues on his #WhenBadOpticsAttack tour through Cuba. Lastly, Susie attempts to lighten things up a bit by sharing the story of the tree-dwelling-apple-chucker in Seattle. It’s a jam-packed hour that flies by, so if you missed the initial airing, be sure to click the link and give it a listen – then share it with friends!!

Q With A View 103 -

It’s Episode 103 of “Q with a View,” and with regular co-host Jason Dibler on Spring Break, Red State’s own Jay Caruso subs in as Susie’s co-host. They kick off the show by wishing Susie’s kiddo “Mini-Q” a very Happy 14th Birthday! They chit chat about baseball – with Jay sharing his love of the Yankees – hockey and episodic television. THEN they dig into the mess that was Super-dee-Duper Tuesday Part 3, expressing their disappointment at Rubio’s loss in Florida and dismay at the continued successes of Donald Trump. Susie gives a run down of her experiences at the Trump rally AND the Cruz rally and the electoral lay of the land in Missouri. Jay explains why, as a Rubio supporter, he’s committed to support Cruz from here on it.
