A Se’nnight of Steyn, July 19-25

Programming Note: Tomorrow, Monday, Mark returns to the anchor chair for a full hour on America’s Number One cable show, Tucker Carlson Tonight.

If you prefer him in non-visual formats, Steyn’s Song of the Week airs today on Serenade Radio in the UK at 5.30pm London time – that’s 12.30pm North American Eastern. You can listen to the show from anywhere on earth by clicking in the top right-hand corner here. And, if you’d like a sample of the series, here’s Mark celebrating one of the most beloved movie songs.

Meanwhile, in case you missed it, here’s how the last seven days looked to Steyn:

~The week began with the first of Mark’s summer poetry-and-music specials, surveying the scene from the Wall Street Crash to the dancing eunuchs.

~Steyn’s Monday column mourned the loss of a truly heroic man, Danish Mohammed cartoonist Kurt Westergaard: it was our most read piece of the week.

Later he swung by “Tucker Carlson Tonight” for the latest innovation from our dynamic society: the Pregnant Man emoji – which Mark seemed to think was Prince Harry:

~On Tuesday Laura’s Links rounded up the Internet from Ben & Jerry’s foreign policy to the mass exodus from the Chicago PD.

~The live Wednesday edition of The Mark Steyn Show was another double-Covid mutation variant combining our Clubland Q&A with favorite Steyn Show features such as Last Call. Mark took questions from Steyn Club members live around the planet on on a multitude of topics from Fauci’s “gain of function” to Kurt Vonnegut’s prescience – and paid tribute to the last Dam Buster. You can listen to the full show here.

~On Thursday, in his ongoing series, Tal Bachman traced a lot of today’s madness back to a strangely influential Kiwi you’ve never heard of.

~On Friday Steyn guest-hosted America’s Number One cable show, Tucker Carlson Tonight. This was his opening monologue:

You can see more from Friday’s show here. Mark will be back in the anchor chair on Monday.

~On Saturday, our audio serialization of Mark Steyn’s Passing Parade looked at the Swedes’ swingingest swinger – and the South Carolina variation thereof.

Later, for our weekend movie date, Rick McGinnis considered Douglas Sirk and two magnificent melodramas.

~Our marquee presentation was Mark’s brand new Tale for Our TimeBurning Daylight, Jack London’s full-length novel sweeping down from the Yukon in the Gold Rush to San Francisco in the Gilded Age. Click for Part Eight, Part Nine, Part Ten, Eleven, Twelve, Thirteen and Part Fourteen. Part Fifteen airs tonight.

Mark has written the introduction for Marc Morano’s invaluable new book, Green Fraud: Why the Green New Deal Is Even Worse Than You Think. It’s available (personally autographed by Steyn) direct from the Steyn bookstore, and also as part of a dynamite denialist double-bill.

Tales for Our Time and Mark Steyn’s Passing Parade are special productions for 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 later today with the July edition of The Hundred Years Ago Show and continues with Steyn’s Song of the Week.
