A Se’nnight of Steyn, July 26-August 1

Programming Note: 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.

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

~The week began with an Afghan incursion and a ChiCom pleasure cruise on The Hundred Years Ago Show …and a one-hundred-year-old song whose excitement is in tents.

~Mark’s Monday Notebook mourned the death of Jackie Mason …and celebrated another court defeat for Michael E Mann: it was our most read piece of the week.

Later on Monday Steyn guest-hosted America’s Number One cable show, Tucker Carlson Tonight. Among other guests he talked to radio host Clay Travis about care packages for Democrat super-spreaders:

You can see more from Monday’s show here.

~On Tuesday Laura’s Links rounded up the Internet from the childless ChiComs to shopping in San Franfeces.

~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 Your Brit Wanker Copper of the Day. Mark took questions from Steyn Club members live around the planet on on a multitude of topics from open borders to Chinese aspirins. You can listen to the full show here.

~On Thursday, Tucker and Mark mulled the latest glimpse of Joe Biden’s rich fantasy life:

~On Friday, in his ongoing series, Tal Bachman dug deeper into the strange tale of the New Zealand researcher who abolished biological sex.

~On Saturday, our continuing audio serialization of Mark Steyn’s Passing Parade looked at the dictator who turned an obscure Soviet republic into a one-man stan, and the lawyer who persuaded the courts that it was no longer necessary to be married to get a great divorce settlement.

Later, for our weekend movie date, Rick McGinnis looked at Los Angeles up on the big screen.

~Our marquee presentation was Mark’s latest 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, with this week a perilous detour to Lower Manhattan. Click for Part Fifteen, Part Sixteen, Part Seventeen, Eighteen, Nineteen, Twenty and Part Twenty-One. Part Twenty-Two 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 second of our summer Sunday poetry-and-music specials and continues with Steyn’s Song of the Week.
