Today, Monday, I started the week sitting in for Rush on America's Number One radio show. This listener enjoyed it:
Go jerk off a Maple tree.
Thanks for taking the trouble to write, Daryll! You can find a few moments from the show here, including my view that Trump's "unpresidential" manner was as nothing compared to the unpresidential actions taken by Obama in the last months of his administration. You can also hear my interviews with Steve Scalise and Jim Jordan. Congressman Jordan breaks down the corruption at the highest levels of the FBI, and Majority Whip Scalise talks very movingly about what happened to him at that baseball game last year, the contrast in behavior between the police on that field and the Broward County officers, and why he is still a big believer in the Second Amendment.
~If you like me in non-visual formats, I'll be back on the radio north of the border with the great John Oakley, live at 5pm Eastern on Toronto's AM640. If you're one of that brave band who can stand me in vision, I'll be keeping my Monday date with Tucker Carlson, coast to coast across America at 8pm Eastern/5pm Pacific.
~We opened The Mark Steyn Club last year, and I'm thrilled by all those SteynOnline supporters across the globe - from Fargo to Fiji, Vancouver to Vanuatu, Surrey to the Solomon Islands - who've signed up to be a part of it. As I said at the time, membership isn't for everyone, but it is a way of ensuring that all our content remains available for everyone - all my columns, audio interviews, video content, all our movie features and songs of the week. None of it's going behind a paywall, because we want it out there in the world, being read and being heard and being viewed, and maybe changing an occasional mind somewhere along the way. And, as it happens, we're providing more free daily content at this website than ever before.
That said, we are introducing members to a few bonus features, and some other benefits, including:
~Our series of monthly audio adventures, Tales for Our Time, in which I read classic fiction by Conan Doyle, H G Wells, the above-mentioned John Buchan and others. Our newest tale starts later this month;
~Exclusive Steyn Store member pricing on over 40 books, mugs, T-shirts, and other products;
~The opportunity to engage in live Clubland Q&A sessions with yours truly. Our latest airs live around the planet next week;
~Transcript and audio versions of The Mark Steyn Show, SteynPosts, and our other video content;
~My quarterly newsletter The Clubbable Steyn;
~Our new video series of classic poetry;
~Advance booking for my live appearances around the world;
~Customized email alerts for new content in your areas of interest;
~and the chance to support our print, audio and video ventures as they wing their way around the planet.
~We had a busy weekend at SteynOnline, starting with Calypso Louie Farrakhan and culminating with a non-calypso Song of the Week: "Ghost Riders in the Sky." In between came a centenary celebration of Mickey Spillane, author ...and actor. If you were too busy with weekend leisure diversions, we hope you'll start your week by checking out one or more of the above. See you on the telly in a couple of hours.
