Today, we have an exclusive interview in the free Glenn Beck e-mail newsletter with best selling author and friend of the show Brad Meltzer.

In the interview, Meltzer talks about being part of the Red Cell program, where he and other out of the box thinkers were asked by the Department of Homeland Security to brainstorm how to destroy a city.

“Within a half hour we would find a way in or we would find a way to destroy it. It’s not one of those days where you go home feeling good. You go home feeling terrified because you see how easy it is to kill us,” Meltzer said.

Meltzer also opens up about working in different media, from TV to novels to comic books, and the research and inspiration behind his stories.

You can read the full interview by signing up for the FREE Glenn Beck Daily newsletter.

It will run today (sign up by 1pm ET) and early next week.
