The Mark Steyn Show
We're proud to present a brand new edition of The Mark Steyn Show. These programs, along with SteynPosts, Tales for Our Time and much else at SteynOnline, are made possible through the support of members of The Mark Steyn Club, for which we are extremely grateful.
In this episode, Mark talks to Douglas Murray, with whom he last appeared on the tenth anniversary of the Mohammed cartoons in the Danish Parliament. Douglas was much in the news this last week. In the wake of the attack on the Finsbury Park mosque, he was denounced on the BBC as a "hate preacher" - an outrageous defamation which the broadcaster has now walked back. You can see Reeta Chakrabarti's apology on behalf of the Corporation here.
Steyn does not regard Murray as a "hate preacher" but as a humane and clear-eyed observer of the existential tragedy unfolding across the west. In this program, Douglas discusses his new book The Strange Death of Europe: Immigration, Identity, Islam, published in America this week and which Mark describes as "profound". Steyn and Murray survey a continent in unprecedented demographic transformation, and roam far and wide in their analysis from the East End of London to the Mediterranean refugee camps, from far northern Sweden to the tomb of Charles Martel. We think you'll find this show worth your time. Click below to watch:

This edition was recorded before the bloodbath in Manchester, but we think you'll find tthe conversation interesting and timely. Mark talks to Muslim activist Raheel Raza about the possibilities of reforming Islam - though, at the end of another grim week, what may resonate most is his question about whether, for westerners, Islam, reformed or not, is worth the effort:
Continuing our series of interviews with Conservative Party leadership candidates, in this latest episode Steyn talks to Lisa Raitt, Minister for Transport and Labour in Stephen Harper's cabinet. For Tory members nervous about taking a chance on Maxime Bernier or Kevin O'Leary, Ms Raitt is said to be the safe pair of hands they're looking for:
In this brand new edition of The Mark Steyn Show, Mark talks to Canadian Conservative Party leadership candidate Maxime Bernier. M Bernier was the country's Foreign Minister under Stephen Harper until his rising star somewhat spectacularly self-detonated. But, after biding his time, he returned as Mad Max, hero of the libertarian right. Steyn and Bernier talk about what it means to be a conservative francophone:

In this episode of The Mark Steyn Show, Mark explores what Daffy Duck used to call "pronoun trouble". His guest is Jordan Peterson, a professor whose entire career is now imperiled by his opposition to the new "non-binary" gender pronouns.
Steyn and Peterson discuss the Orwellian perversion of language and the totalitarian impulses of social engineering. And Mark asks the big question: Is the jig up for western civilization?
The hundredth day of a presidency is an arbitrary and meaningless yardstick, but everybody seems to be going to town on this one. So we thought it might be fun to revisit this edition of The Mark Steyn Show from Inauguration Week and see how his preview of forthcoming attractions holds up.
First up is Mark's opening monologue, looking at the Democrats' rejection of President Trump's legitimacy - something which has only intensified in the last three months. Next, former presidential candidate Michele Bachmann talks about what she hopes to see from the Trump Administration - and you might enjoy seeing how her priorities have fared a hundred days on. Finally, Steyn takes us on a tour of some famously disastrous starts to presidential terms of the last two centuries. Click below to watch:
