~On Tuesday Mark talked to Jules Serkin, a BBC presenter stricken by the vaccine, plus Natalie Winters on Chinese investments in social media and Peter Hitchens on Ireland - with a few personal reflections on being disdained as a Canadian gaslighter:

Later on Tuesday the old EIB band - Snerdley & Steyn - got together on 77 WABC to ponder the leftist intimidation of judges and the death of Californian landscaping.

~On Wednesday The Mark Steyn Show began with Mark talking to Martin Brighty about his NHS walking stick ...and huge bills for everything else:

Later, the show covered the Big Shut-Up, the coming collapse and the Islamo-leftist alliance. You can watch the full show here.

Thanks, Mark, and Happy Club Birthday to all!

If you'd like to join Jan in our ranks, we'd love to have you. We thank all our First Week Founding Members from May 2017 who've decided to re-up for a sixth year, and we hope our First Fortnight Founding Members will want to do the same in the days ahead. And, if you have a chum who's partial to classic poems on video or classic fiction in audio, we also offer a special gift membership.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, May 2-8

Happy Mother's Day to our readers in many parts of the world, and Happy Fifth Birthday to Mark Steyn Club members in almost all parts of the world. For the former we have our annual musical salute to mothers everywhere. For the latter we have a special edition of the Steyn audio show looking back at our first year.

Meanwhile, in case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Mark:

~The se'nnight started with a song that, unlike US judges, UK politicians and Australian civil servants, has no doubt what a woman is.

~On Monday a new week of The Mark Steyn Show began with Mark and Maxime Bernier, a former Canadian foreign minister and thus the man who, on behalf of the Queen, issued Canadians with the passports. As he has now discovered, if you're unvaccinated, a Canadian passport is now entirely worthless. Click below to watch:

Also on Monday's show were Eva Vlaardingerbroek, talking "disinformation"; statistician Jamie Jenkins on vaccine efficacy; and former Kabul cabinet minister Nargis Nehan on Afghanistan after the west. You can watch the full hour here.

~On Tuesday America was agog at an unprecedented leak of a pending judicial decision from the US Supreme Court, and on the most fiercely partisan of issues - abortion. Steyn chewed it over with two women on different sides of the issue, Naomi Wolf and Ann McElhinney. Later on the show, Jasmine Birtles talked about the causes of the cost of living and Gordon Chang tried to figure out what's going on in Shanghai:

Later on Tuesday there was more on abortion and the Supreme Court from Snerdley & Steyn on New York's 77 WABC.

~On Wednesday The Mark Steyn Show began with Mark's take on the economic crisis:

;

Later, he was joined by Sir Christopher Chope, lone Parliamentary campaigner for the rights of vaccine victims, followed by Kathy Gyngell uncensored, Alexandra Marshall on touchy totalitarians, and Thane Gustafson on oil and gas. You can watch the full show here.

~Thursday's Steyn Show was a powerful edition beginning with two young widows abandoned by the British state after losing their husbands to the Covid vaccine. Later Natalie Winters joined Mark to look at the disgraceful Washington-Wuhan relationship continuing as if nothing had happened. We rounded out the hour with rock colossus Ted Nugent on the American campfire and much more:

Also on Thursday Laura's Links rounded up the Internet from the Ministry of Truth to crimes against humanity.

~Friday marked the fifth birthday of The Mark Steyn Club. We thank especially all those First Weekend Founding Members who've re-upped for a sixth year. Mark hosted a special edition of his Clubland Q&A revisiting members' questions from the first months of the Club. You can listen to the full show here.

~This weekend also marks the first anniversary of Rick's Flicks: We are honoured to publish one of the best movie essayists on the planet. This Saturday Rick McGinnis picked Jimmy Stewart and June Allyson in Strategic Air Command.

The Mark Steyn Show and Clubland Q&A are special productions for The Mark Steyn Club, now beginning its sixth year. First Week Founding Member John Frey writes:

I dilly-dallied for a few days, and I asked my Minister of Social Affairs if it was OK to re-enlist with The Mark Steyn Club. 'Oh, absolutely,' she said. Even though I cannot possibly consume all the Global Content Provider's output, the MSC is still the best deal on earth. We've been informed by the news, entertained and taught by the Tales, and Laura's Links are always a treasure. We salute and support Mark and team - and all the commenters are essential elements of the team. Go Team!

If you'd like to join John in our ranks, we'd love to have you. And, if you have a chum who's partial to classic poems on video or classic fiction in audio, we also offer a special gift membership.

A new week at SteynOnline begins later this morning with a brand new edition of The Hundred Years Ago Show.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, April 25-May 1

In case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Mark:

~On Monday a new week of The Mark Steyn Show began with Mark inviting on a statistician who strongly disagrees with Steyn on the efficacy of the third Covid shot. Click below to watch:

~On Tuesday Mark began with yet more "unforeseeable" consequences:

Dr Ros Jones followed with a paediatrician's view of what's happening. Next up was China, further pushback on Steyn's claims about the efficacy of the booster, and Baroness Hoey on the Northern Ireland Protocol. You can see the full show here.

Later on Tuesday Snerdley & Steyn got the old EIB band back together at New York's legendary 77 WABC to muse on the ever lengthening LGBTQWERTY parade and being harried on Harry.

~On Thursday, Steyn talked to Rotherham survivor Sammy Woodhouse about the latest absurd indignity by a state that refuses to tell the truth about what's happening with so-called "grooming gangs", followed by David Starkey on the west's descent into benevolent dictatorship and Leilani Dowding on free speech:

Also on Thursday Laura's Links rounded up the Internet from the death of the mask mandate to population replacement.

~On Friday Mark hosted another Clubland Q&A with questions from Steyn Club members live around the planet mainly on the US Department of Homeland Security's new Ministry of Truth. You can listen to the full show here.

~For his Saturday movie date Rick McGinnis picked Humphrey Bogart in the oddly familiar tale of Beat the Devil.

~Our marquee presentation was the conclusion of Steyn's latest Tale for Our Time: an unlikely venture into dystopic fiction by Anthony Trollope, The Fixed Period. Click for Part Twenty-Two, Part Twenty-Three, Part Twenty-Four, Twenty-Five, the penultimate episode and the grand finale - or go here for a big old binge-listen. A brand new Tale for Our Time begins this month.

~This past week kicked off as usual with a brand new Song of the Week – this time spotlighting Jimmie Davis' "You Are My Sunshine".

~Mark joined his GB News chum Colin Brazier on Wednesday from a Ukrainian coffee shop to chat about the situation as he saw it on the ground, and to assess what appear to be the glimmerings of a fifteen-point "peace plan" from Moscow and Kiev.

~The Mark Steyn Show's Ukrainian spectacular continued Wednesday evening with Lieutenant-General Jonathon Riley on the Russian performance so far, Conrad Black on American weakness and sham sanctions, and the hardworking Mariia, who had to find time for the interview in what are already 20-hour days full of every task imaginable.

~On Friday, SteynOnline's deputy senior assistant vice-president of Canadian affairs, Andrew Lawton, picked the lock on Mark's studio door and sat in for a substitute-guest-guest hosted edition of our Clubland Q&A, fielding questions on Trudeau's trucker crackdown, Putin's Russian invasion, the global elites and the hierarchy of alarmism.
