Glenn and Dr. Keith Ablow gave their reactions on radio today about their Today’s Show interview. Glenn was pretty optimistic going in, saying that he expected to be put through the “buzz saw”. How did he think it went?

Glenn started off by playing some audio from Natalie Morales. She said, “You say you compare the liberals to fascists?” She added, “And since the Tucson shooting, though, where so many have been outspoken and criticize you in particular, Sarah Palin as well among many others and they've said it's exactly that tone and the political vitriol. That is fueling the fires.”

Ablow was quick to jump to Glenn’s defense. “That's so crazy.  I mean, I'm sorry to interrupt, I mean, I know he's the bigger guy on the planet but really we have so much work to do to repair the mental healthcare system in America, a system that would literally send Jared Loughner home from college and say don't come back here.  Can you imagine if he had diabetes and he was collapsing all over campus?  What doctor would say go home and never come back?”

On air, Ablow said of the question, “It's a distraction.  Glenn, we talked this morning.  I think it was really important.  We were walking to the Today Show and we both agreed that a lot of what you are doing for the country is very much like what a therapist does for a patient.  Patients may not want to hear that they're addicted to alcohol.  The country may not want to hear that the debt is out of control.  There are lots of things that people may not want to hear but they need to from somebody who really cares about them.”

Glenn asked Dr. Ablow, “Do you think the media really doesn't know or they don't want to hear the answer?”

“I think that people, media people included, want to dance around anything complicated and painful that takes tremendous effort to fix.  Isn't it easier to call people names and say that political rhetoric causes chaos or violence instead of looking at a shattered mental healthcare system, rolling up your sleeves and saying let's get to work here?” Dr. Ablow said.

Glenn also addressed the fact that the main example they used was a comedy bit that he used in one segment before he was nationally syndicated. Since he was only on one station at the time, its unlikely many people would have heard it. Glenn wondered why the media never focuses on his message of self-empowerment or faith, hope and charity. Glenn wondered how much E4, Wilmington, and 8.28 have changed the world if the media focuses on one joke from years ago.

“ This is about changing the country one person at a time.  That's what this is about.  You want to solve this violent nut job?  I don't know how to do that.  You want to make sure we don't go into violence, we don't go into revolution?  Change people at the core,” Glenn concluded.

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."
