Welcome to the Tuesday edition of The Mark Steyn Show. If you're watching us in real time, immediately after today's show, Mark will be back with his old EIB comrade on Bo Snerdley's Rush Hour, live at 4pm US Eastern on New York's legendary radio powerhouse, 77 WABC.
Today's Steyn Show begins with some bad news for mask aficionados. Afterwards, Mark welcomes back one of his most popular guests, and a supposedly controversial one - the subject of his third and still ongoing investigation by the UK state censor Ofcom. In the wake of her memorable appearance at Hillsdale College, Naomi Wolf updates us on where things stand in the unfolding horror of the Pfizer documents.
Mark's Mailbox finds certain similarities in the defenestrations of Steyn and Carlson - and then Norman Fenton joins us to revive the Covid-obliterated concepts of "risk" and "cost-benefit analysis". And we round things out with a tip of the hat to a man who found success somewhat late in life.

~As mentioned on air, Mark has a new book out, The Prisoner of Windsor. Joe Cressotti, a First Week Founding Member of The Mark Steyn Club, writes:
I was delighted to receive my signed copy of The Prisoner of Windsor in the mail. Mark, thanks for taking the time to sign all of those copies. I know it must be a huge chore. It's really appreciated, especially when so many artists and writers today are inclined to use auto-pen. Apparently, Bob Dylan got into trouble doing so on his book, The Philosophy of Modern Song. He apologized for an 'error in judgment.'
No autopen with Mark, Joe: just sweat, blood and elbow grease. If you would like to Joe in the ranks of those with a personally inscribed copy, you can order one over at the SteynOnline Bookstore. But, if you're way beyond physical books, it's also available in digital editions, whether you incline toward Amazon's Kindle or Barnes & Noble's Nook or Indigo's Kobo.
Aside from buying The Prisoner of Windsor, there are multiple ways of supporting Mark's important lawsuit against the grisly Ofcom in the English High Court, including:
a) signing up a friend for a Steyn Club Gift Membership;
b) buying a loved one a SteynOnline gift certificate; or
c) joining Mark, Eva, Leilani, Alexandra and his other special guests on this summer's Steyn Cruise.
GB News will not be standing with Mark in court. Not for the first time, Steyn will be fighting an important free-speech campaign alone. But the "chilling effect" of Ofcom on public discourse is far worse than Canada under Section 13, so battle must be joined.
~Among the benefits of Mark Steyn Club membership is that you can enjoy The Mark Steyn Show in any medium you desire: video, audio or text. So, if you find Steyn and his guests more convivial in non-visual form, please log-in to our Audio and Transcript versions. To listen to the above show, simply click here.
~Eva, Leilani and Alexandra will be back to take the pulse of the planet on a brand new Steyn Show tomorrow, Wednesday, at 8pm UK/3pm North American Eastern.
~And finally, as noted above, The Prisoner of Windsor is also available digitally. For the Kindle edition around the world, please click below:
