Welcome to another edition of The Hundred Years Ago Show. It's November 2020, and France is speaking to the Pope again. A West Virginia village has a meteoric rise to fame, and the "postage meter" stamps out stamps. Also: A masked man is the most famous face in America - and Mr Ponzi's scheme ends in a prison sentence. Plus all the other headlines from Anchorage to abortion - and the sounds of the era from baby songs to lumbering airs. Click above to listen.

The Hundred Years Ago Show began in the first few weeks of lockdown as an occasional feature on the audio edition of The Mark Steyn Show. It proved so popular that we're now making it a full stand-alone show every Sunday at around this time. We hope you'll make a date.

As with our audio adventures, video poetry and musical specials, we've created a special Hundred Years Ago home page in handy Netflix-style tile format to enable you to set your time machine for the precise week or month you're in the mood for. We also have a tile-format page for The Mark Steyn Show, lest you should miss it on your telly every Monday to Thursday in primetime.

The Hundred Years Ago Show is a special production of The Mark Steyn Club. As we always say, Club membership isn't for everyone, but, if you're interested, you can find more information here.
