Happy Columbus Day to our American listeners, and Happy Thanksgiving to our Canadian listeners. Alas, in the United Kingdom, it is no holiday at all, so Mark is hard at work prepping for tonight's regular edition of The Mark Steyn Show, live on GB News at 8pm British Summer Time - that's 3pm North American Eastern. You can watch from almost anywhere on the planet right here.
But, for those North Americans enjoying a long weekend, welcome to the annual broadcast of our hybrid Columbus/Thanksgiving edition of The Mark Steyn Show. We get all the gloomy stuff on Trudeaupian self-loathing and Columbian statue-toppling out of the way upfront, and then move on to a couple of poems for the day, a 101-Years-Ago edition of The Hundred Years Ago Show in which Al Jolson encounters Christopher Columbus, and an extended edition of Mark's Mailbox with contributions from Americans, Canadians and non-holidaying Danes. And we also have an American national anthem and a great song for Canadian Thanksgiving.

That audio edition of Steyn's Song of the Week that Mark mentioned can be heard on Serenade Radio from anywhere on the planet this Thursday at 9pm British Summer Time/4pm Eastern.
The audio edition of The Mark Steyn Show is a special production for The Mark Steyn Club. As Mark always says, Club membership isn't for everyone, but if you're interested you can find more information here.
If you prefer to read your radio shows, Steyn Club members can find the transcripts here.
If you're just catching on to these audio diversions, we've done what we did with Mark's video shows and archived them in a Netflix-style tile format that makes it easy to catch up with ones you've missed. You'll find the audio Steyn Show home page here.
