Escalating Everything

Programming note: On Friday our Clubland Q&A live around the planet will air at 3pm North American Eastern - that's 7pm GMT/8pm British Summer Time.

Thank you again for dialing up The Mark Steyn Show through the week. We had a very good night on Wednesday, beating not just the big guns at Sky but also trouncing Rupert Murdoch's damp squib of a Piers Morgan vanity show five-to-one. GB News is also doing great on radio: we're one of the few UK stations to be increasing audience at the moment. Mark is grateful to everyone who tuned in.

Thursday's Steyn Show began with Kamala in Korea - and Mark's speculation that this may, in fact, explain everything. His first guest was Leilani Dowding on the breezy escalation of the Nato-Russian not-so-proxy war.

Next up was Dr Joseph Fraiman with some truly astonishing numbers on the Covid vaccines from his new, impeccably peer-reviewed paper. Marc Morano, bestselling author of The Great Reset, followed with some thoughts on the big picture. And we rounded out the hour with Toby Young, closing out a story we broke on the show with a happy ending - and a victory over the totalitarian goons at PayPal.

All that plus your comments live as it happens. Click below to view the full show:

If you've missed a Mark Steyn Show in recent weeks or recent years, you can find all our shows from the year to date and many highlights from the archives in a handy Netflix-style tile format here. Make the most of them while you can because, as Mark mentions every other night, he's still under investigation from OffComm.
