A Caliph Departs

Audio Recording

Welcome to this week's Hundred Years Ago Show. If you enjoy this weekly presentation, please note that I'll be doing The Hundred Years Ago Show live during the 2023 Mark Steyn Cruise - along with many other favorite features from SteynOnline and The Mark Steyn Show. More details here.

November 1922 continues with the Royal Navy escorting the ex-Sultan of the Ottoman Empire into exile. But is he also an ex-Caliph?

Also on today's show:

~Election irregularities in Michigan?

~Germany tries government by experts.

~And are the Japanese entitled to white privilege?

Plus all the other headlines from Broadway to the Bosphorus - and the sounds of the era from Nora Bayes to George M Cohan. Click above to listen.

Thank you for your kind comments on The Hundred Years Ago Show. Simon Arnold, a Steyn Clubber from Scotland, writes of last week's arsenic-laden confectionary edition:

If I could find a Walnut Whip it would probably cost around $1 or more, not as tasty...

Great show, as always.

Somewhere along the way they did ever so slightly change the formula of a Walnut Whip, Simon. But not as much as they've changed the formula of, say, the British Conservative Party or the Church of England. So in that sense the Walnut Whip has survived the last century better than most British icons.

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.

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.

Programming note: Tomorrow morning at SteynOnline please join us for a special edition of The Mark Steyn Show. That will be followed by a brand new edition of Steyn's Song of the Week on Serenade Radio at 5.30pm Greenwich Mean Time - 12.30pm Eastern. Wherever you are on the planet, you can listen live by clicking the button at top right here.

Details of all Mark's regularly scheduled TV and radio shows each week can be found on this page in the right-hand sidebar.
