Jane the Virgin, a comedy on the CW network, is making people laugh with its unique quirky style and Latino cast. Find out what everyone's raving about.
Jane the Virgin: A comedy-drama following a chaste young woman who is accidentally impregnated via artificial insemination as she struggles to inform her devoutly religious family and make the right choices concerning the child. Based on the telenovela "Juana la virgen."
Jesus was sent by the Greys. He was the result of the artificial insemination of Mary. He was sent by his Father The One. His teachings were alien-given. He was not the son of a human. He was the offspring of a female, known as Mary. He was God in the flesh. He was a prophet sent by The One to bring you the WORD OF GOD. He did not die for your sins. He died from them. God did not kill him. YOUR ANCESTORS DID! The religion that you have come to call Christianity has little to do with what Jesus stood for, and the message he tried to teach you.
This show takes a look at how some of the people we live with in society are as lazy as lazy can get. The type of person who could fall into a fireplace and be too lazy to get out. What causes that? Why do people think that they're entitled to sucking up oxygen and that's it?
Are the parents at fault? (Short answer: yes)
What role does society play?
How do we fix it?

Wow. It's a long, long way from Episode 1 back in February of 2011. What started as a 15 minute rant about Rush Limbaugh has turned into a 90 minute show that has recorded roughly 150,000 listens. All I can do is say "thank you" to all of you who made it possible.
I've interviewed 40 people since show #300 and all of them were special in their own way. Whether it was a reality TV star or a star the interviews were a lot of fun. It makes me feel really good about the show to not only know that everyday people listen, but that celebrities want to be a part of T2Q as well. It's always great to have stars on now and then.
However, I cannot neglect my real stars. I could not have made it this far without my Show Legends. Each of them bring something special to the table and for that I'm extremely grateful. My Original 3: Buck, Ray, and M&M have been with me for somewhere between 350 and 375 episodes.
Tonight, the show is all about them. In what way? You'll find out once you tune into the 400th Talk 2 Q Radio Show!
Still "No experts. Just opinions."
