A Se’nnight of Steyn, January 11-17

In case you missed it, here’s how the last seven days looked to Mark:

~The week began with the healing balm of a lovely composition by a guy who enjoyed punching your lights out: “Try a Little Tenderness.

~~Mark’s marquee presentation this week was his latest Tale for Our Time – the ever timelier Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell. Steyn Clubbers can click for the opening episode, and then for Part Two, Part Three, Part Four, Five, Six, and Part Seven – or go straight for a good old binge-listen. Part Eight airs tonight.

Tales for Our Time is made possible by members of The Mark Steyn Club. For more on the Club, see below.

~On Monday, in memory of our late friend Kathy Shaidle, Mark presented a video compilation of her appearances on The Mark Steyn Show. Her observations on free speech and the profoundly damaged footsoldiers of the left are especially relevant.

~On Tuesday’s Mark Steyn Show Mark addressed the Wokestapo’s accelerating crackdown on all dissent, and the rise of a weak hegemon. There was also another edition of The Hundred Years Ago Show, plus a song for the times.

~On Wednesday, as Congress voted to reimpeach the President, Steyn returned to the Golden EIB Microphone to guest-host America’s Number One radio show. Click below to listen:

Later, on “Tucker Carlson Tonight”, Mark and Tucker reflected on Nancy Pelosi’s “most diverse impeachment team in American history“. Click below to watch:

~On Thursday Laura’s Links rounded up the Internet, and paid tribute to Laura’s fearless comrade Kathy Shaidle.

~The week ended with the latest edition of The Mark Steyn Show, in which Mark considered the elimination of opposition and the rise of political violence. Plus: Percy Bysshe Shelley with a poem to stir the blood, and a Song of the Week that’s just what the doctor ordered.

~Our Saturday movie column presented an anthology of Kathy Shaidle’s perceptive insights into Hollywood stars across the decades.

The Mark Steyn Show and Tales for Our Time are made with the support of members of The Mark Steyn Club. The Mark Steyn Club is not to everyone’s taste, but we do have members in every corner of the world from Virginia to Vanuatu, and, if you have a chum who’s a fan of classic poems on video or classic fiction in audio, we also offer a special gift membership.

A new week at SteynOnline begins tonight with our Song of the Week – and continues with the latest episode of Nineteen Eighty-Four.
