Conrad Black

No stranger to controversy, Conrad Black is an iconic Canadian lighting rod and “walking thesaurus”.

He once controlled the world’s third largest English-language newspaper empire, faced prosecution in the USA for fraud and obstruction of justice – and has seen the world of business, politics and justice like no one else.

Conrad Black regularly shares his unique take on Canada and the world with John Oakley on Talk Radio AM640.

Mark Steyn

Born in Toronto, educated in England and now stirring up crap across North America and the world from his home in new Hampshire, Mark Steyn is the author of such controversial books as “America Alone”, “The End Of The World As We Know It”, and “After America: Get ready For Armageddon”.

He regularly shares his acerbic wit and razor sharp mind – which have made him a popular contributor to such major publications as The Chicago Sun-Times, The New York Sun, The Australian, Maclean’s, The Irish Times, and The National Post – on The John Oakley Show.
