A London Men’s Club Of 1783 (Podcast)

Men’s clubs used to be places where like-minded individuals could congregate and discuss topics of mutual interest. As society has changed, this is becoming an increasingly rare tradition. To see just what a gentleman’s club was like in London in 1783, we go to the original sources and read the club’s by-laws. Nothing better illustrates how different that era was from today.

  1. QC,

    You deliver again with another fascinating podcast.

    I first was introduced to English Men’s Clubs through the Dan Simmons novel, “Drood.” Although a fictionalized drama of Dickens’ life, the author showed the importance of the ‘Club’ for Dickens and his dear friend, Wilkie Collins. Details of dues were irrelevant to the narrative arc, but the consistency in the frequency of their dining, cigar smoking and bourbon drinking, accompanied with meetings of great minds without a doubt had an everlasting impact on the literary world as we now know it.

    Men Clubs still exist but mostly in the digital realm, as evidenced by the auto-played podcast on SoundCloud between you and Roosh V that followed this one in my playlist. Is it the same? Well, no but it is an attempt at keeping male comradery alive with some measure of accountability.

    Take care,

    RR
