Programming note: Mark will be back for Tuesday's Steyn Show at 8pm BST - that's 3pm North American Eastern. Immediately afterwards, Mark and Mister Snerdley, James Golden, will be live on New York radio powerhouse 77 WABC at 4pm Eastern.
~Welcome to a brand new week of The Mark Steyn Show. Today's episode features the return of three favourite guests from around the globe, with different angles on the fast fracturing "free world":
First up is Mark's old boss - and a man who knows what it's like to attract the attention of the dirty stinkin' rotten corrupt US Department of Justice. Conrad Black talks about the latest criminal indictment of his friend Donald Trump, and what it tells us about the health - and, indeed, stability - of the American republic.
Next up is Mark Steyn Cruisemate Eva Vlaardingerbroek on a horror story out of France that hit rather close to home for Mark. He and Eva discuss the underlying dynamics, and what it portends for some of the oldest nations on earth.
Finally our Stats Man Jamie Jenkins is back to look at the ongoing toll taken by the Covid years on British free speech.
All that plus Mark's Mailbox and a salute to Justin's recreation of the War of 1812 in cloud cover. To watch the show, simply click above.
~As Mark mentioned on the air, he has a new book out, The Prisoner of Windsor., which is picking up a lot of five-star reviews around the planet. From the UK:
Mark Steyn's The Prisoner of Windsor is such an enjoyable read, you'll be laughing your socks off too!
And what a tale of our time it is. I can't rate this book highly enough, it's just bloody brilliant!
Thank you, sir. If you're willing to pay list price, you can get a personally autographed copy over at the SteynOnline Bookstore. But, if you can live without Mark's inscription, you may procure a handsome hardback at a lower price with cheaper shipping from Amazon. It's also at Amazon Canada, if not yet (for some mysterious reason) in print form at Indigo Canada, although they are selling it digitally.
Aside from buying his book, there are multiple ways of supporting Mark's important lawsuit against the censors of 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, the aforementioned Eva Vlaardingerbroek and many more special guests on this summer's Steyn Cruise.
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.
