Mark Steyn on Rap

The great Mark Steyn discussed rap “music” (a symbol of the decline of the West if ever there was one) as well as roof building, the dollar as reserve currency, and Queen Victoria’s diamond jubilee with Jay and me on this week’s episode of “Need to Know,” recorded at the National Review Summit. Wish we could have talked for another hour at least. We also spoke with Amity Shlaes (author of The Forgotten Man) about her new book on Calvin Coolidge, and heard from my son Ben Parker. Jay’s mike was malfunctioning throughout due to hotel equipment. You can still hear his pungent commentary, you just have to listen a little harder than usual. But it’s always worth doing that when Jay speaks.
