Mark Steyn

From Covid to Canceled

WhatsApp Telegram

Welcome to a special edition of The Mark Steyn Show, marking our fiftieth programme since we launched this series as the world lurched into lockdown for two weeks to "flatten the curve", and then staggered on to an unchurched Easter, a parade-less Memorial Day, a Canada Day with trigger warnings on the Canadian flag and a not so Glorious Fourth with Columbus, Washington and Francis Scott Key being toppled from their pedestals. In today's edition Mark presents an audio kaleidoscope of the spring and summer of this very weird year culled from all fifty shows, with pertinent vignettes from America, Canada, Britain, Australia, France, Turkey and above all China. From lockdown to looting, it's all here, including Basement Joe, Moistly Justin, ...

A Clubman's Notes

Chuter cum Shooter

WhatsApp Telegram

Welcome to Part Twenty-Two of our current Tale for Our Time - my contemporary inversion of Anthony Hope's 1894 classic The Prisoner of Zenda. John Wilson, a Colorado member of The Mark Steyn Club, has been enjoying it: This tale is picking up speed like Joe Biden's dementia. Can't wait for more. Does the author have any idea where it's heading, or can we compare its trajectory to Joe Biden again? Well, the final episodes are not yet written, so in theory our hero could end up getting on a flight to Delaware and settling down happily ever after in Joe's basement. Just ahead of that thrilling denouement, in tonight's episode of The Prisoner of Windsor, Britain's second-longest-serving Home Secretary finds the job is getting to her: "There ...
