Free Speech at Sea

We're proud to present a brand new edition of The Mark Steyn Show. These programs, along with SteynPosts, Tales for Our Time, On the Town and much else at SteynOnline, are made possible through the support of members of The Mark Steyn Club from every corner of the earth, for which we are extremely grateful.

This edition of The Mark Steyn Show was recorded live at sea on the inaugural Mark Steyn Cruise with an audience from the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong and elsewhere. Mark talks free speech with three of his compatriots - author and blogger Kathy Shaidle, singer-songwriter Tal Bachman, and broadcaster and parliamentary candidate Andrew Lawton. They also take questions from Mark Steyn Club members on free-speech issues in North America, Europe and elsewhere. Click below to watch:

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 prefer the show in non-visual form, please log-in to our Audio & Transcripts department. To listen to the above show, simply click here.

As we said above, The Mark Steyn Show is made possible through the support of members of The Mark Steyn Club. We appreciate that membership is not for everyone, and we're proud to say that, thanks to the Steyn Club, this website now provides more free content than at any time in our fifteen-year history. But, if you're minded to join us, we'd love to have you. What is The Mark Steyn Club? Well, it's a discussion group of lively people on the great questions of our time (the latest will air this Tuesday). It's also an audio Book of the Month Club (we'll have another launching next Friday), and a video poetry circle (the latest poem airs a week on Sunday), and a live music club (see Tal getting his kicks on Route 66 here, and enjoy some more live Bobby Troup songs here). We don't (yet) have a clubhouse, but we do have other benefits. And, if you've got some kith or kin who might like the sound of all that and more, we do have a special limited-time Steyn Club Gift Membership. More details here.

There'll be more from the Mark Steyn cruise later this month.
