Welcome to Part Thirty-One of our latest audio entertainment: The Prisoner of Windsor, my contemporary inversion of Anthony Hope's Ruritanian runaway hit of 1894.
Marc Swerdloff, a First Day Founding Member of The Mark Steyn Club from Florida, has been enjoying recent episodes - such as Rudy Elphberg's decision to give a pro-imperialism speech to a teachers' conference:
That was some speech! A tour de comedic force!
And Marc enjoyed the following night's episode, with some of the unintended consequences of the speech:
Laugh out loud funny!
Thank you, Marc. Unfortunately for poor Rudy Elphberg, that speech was the final straw for the various forces ranged against him - which is how in tonight's episode he comes to find himself being beaten up by a police commissioner and a transgender field marshal in the Round Tower of Windsor Castle.
