Thank you for all your questions. If you missed the live broadcast, the action replay can be heard in full here.
UPPERDATE! We're live now, so let's have at it!
UPDATE! We'll be going live in about fifteen minutes, so do get ready to fire off your questions via the comment form below. See you at the top of the hour. And to listen simply click the livestream feed.
It's Friday, and that means another edition of our Clubland Q&A live around the planet. Listeners in the Americas should please note the slightly later hour due to the US and Canada's somewhat premature springing into summer: 6pm North American Eastern time, which is for this brief period 10pm Greenwich Mean Time, and even later where I happen to be right now. We'll try to pin down the rest of the time zones below, but do, as they say, check local listings.
As you now, I've been on a Ukrainian jaunt all week. So on today's show I'm happy to take questions on that or any of the other subjects we've talked about in recent days, plus anything we haven't gotten around to - with our regular caveat that certain subjects bore me stiff, and you know what they are by now.
Whether or not you're a member of The Mark Steyn Club, you can listen to our Clubland Q&A live as it happens wherever you chance to be on this turbulent earth: Club membership is required only to ask a question. We love to hear from brand new members, so if you've joined this week, either for a full year or a see-how-it-goes experimental quarter, do shoot me a head-scratcher for today's show. But, if you're not interested in joining, no worries, as they say in Oz: We seek no unwilling members - and as always the show is free to listen to, so we hope you'll want to tune in.
As soon as we go live, members should log-in and submit their queries via our comment form below - and I'll answer them as-it-happens on the audio livestream that should magically appear above (or possibly below - I forget which). And, if you disagree with my response, then let rip in the comments, and I'll endeavour to address a couple of the objections as we go along.
Clubland Q&A is a special production for The Mark Steyn Club. We're not paywalling off SteynOnline or any of that nonsense - and in fact this site now offers more free content than ever before in our nineteen-year history. But Club membership does confer a few benefits, including not only participation in our Q&As but also access to Tales for Our Time, our Sunday Poems and much more.
So see you back here live this afternoon at 6pm North American Eastern Time. That's 7pm in the Canadian Maritimes, half-past-seven in Newfoundland - and, beyond the Americas, 10pm in London and Dublin; 11pm in Paris and Berlin; midnight in Odessa and Kyiv, as we now have to spell it; 1am in Moscow, where Putin is running out of generals; half-past-one in Tehran, for all you Newfoundlanders who move to Iran for the half-hour time zone; 3.45am in Kathmandu, for all you Iranians who move to Nepal to check out the quarter-hour time zone; 6am in Singapore, Honkers and Western Australia (sorry about that); 9am in Sydney and Melbourne, and an even more civilised hour for the kippers and kedgeree in Auckland and beyond.
But, whatever hour it is where you are, we do hope you'll be able to join us. To listen to the livestream, simply click the "play" icon on the audio player (in certain browsers, the audio will start auto-playing). And to pose a question simply use the comment form below.
