MUST WATCH: Radio guests explain amazing story of tragedy and forgiveness

There are few things more powerful than forgiveness, and on today's radio show Glenn invited two men on to share their inspiring and almost unbelievable story. In 2007, Chris Williams and his family were driving home when they were struck by a drunk driver, Cameron White. In the accident, Williams lost his wife, two young children, and his unborn son. In the moments after the accident, Williams knew that rather than harbor anger at the driver, he would forgive him. Today

"The story of these two men is absolutely incredible. It is a story of forgiveness and forgiveness of yourself and a willingness to let it go. And what a powerful story it is," Glenn said.

" So right after I'm aware of what's going on. I mean, certainly there's got to be an element of shock. I'm not dealing the injuries I had sustained, but I was aware enough to desperately check for a pulse on my wife's wrist and there was none. And I could see that she had an injury on her elbow that wasn't bleeding and so it just started ‑‑ things started to add up that she was gone. I just ‑‑ that no amount of CPR or emergency assistance would bring her back," Williams said of the accident.

"I look back and I see my son Benjamin just kind of leaning against the door and he looked so very peaceful as if he was asleep and I could see a huge gash on his head that once again wasn't bleeding and if you've cut your head at all, you know that those things bleed a lot and so just once again this thought that he too was absolutely gone. And then as I looked to see my daughter, she's actually leaning forward with her hair draped over her eyes, her face and, you know, I couldn't see any physical injury. But once again I just had this thought that she too was gone. And that was the extent of it."

"How did you just tell me that story? My gosh, I'm sitting here as a dad and Jeffy's doing the same thing. How did you just tell me that story?" Glenn asked after hearing him describe it with such calm.

"I have a ‑‑ I have a core belief that they live on. I mean, this is a moment where I'm dealing with, you know, looking at their bodies that they've left here, but in a sense they've ‑‑ they're entering a place that I would ‑‑ I call Paradise, right, just a place of peace. And as I've reflected on that moment so many times and the peace that came when I decided in that car to let it go, it has just, it has created this foundation in my life that I can ‑‑ that I can talk about it and reflect on it and remember my wife and my kids in a way that reinforces that they're not gone, that they live on," Williams said.

White, who was seventeen at the time, described what he experienced to Glenn: "In high school, Skyline High School and I was just a normal kid who liked to rebel, and I was at an acquaintance's house. I had some alcohol. I had some friends I was going to meet up with and they called me, let them ‑‑ let me know that they were going to be at a Baskin Robbins. So I went there in hopes to find them. They weren't there. So I called them and asked where they were. They were somewhere else. So they said come over and meet us. And I just felt tipsy at the time, but the last thing I remember is pulling out of the Baskin Robbins, and the next thing I know I'm walking away from my overturned vehicle and I'm looking back and trying to figure out what happened. All I know is something terrible happened."

Again, Glenn could not believe that this story was being told with such calm and how, shockingly, the two had a close relationship.

Williams said their relationship was fantastic, and that together they are spreading a message of redemption with their book "Let It Go: A True Story of Tragedy and Forgiveness".

I see the same thing in Cameron and so being with him, it's ‑‑ there's a wonderful expectation for the future. It's almost like I get to kind of watch him fulfill I think the expectation that the judge saw as well, is that he has an incredibly bright future, he's an incredibly talented individual and I think that's really this message of redemption and had I not let that go, I would have missed out on this opportunity to do that.

Fox News host Greg Gutfeld joined Glenn on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to talk about his new book, "The Plus: Self-Help for People Who Hate Self-Help."

Greg admits he is probably the last person who should write a self-help book. Nevertheless, he offers his offbeat advice on how to save America during what has become one of the most tumultuous times in history, as well as drinking while tweeting (spoiler: don't do it).

He also shares his "evolution" on President Donald Trump, his prediction for the election, and what it means to be an agnostic-atheist.

In this clip, Greg shares what he calls his "first great epiphany" on how dangerous cancel culture has become.

"I believe that cancel culture is the first successful work-around of the First Amendment," he said. "Because freedom of speech doesn't protect me from my career being ruined, my livelihood being destroyed, or me getting so depressed I commit suicide. Cancel culture is the first successful work-around of freedom of speech. It can oppress your speech with the scepter of destruction. We don't have freedom of speech anymore."

Dr. Simone Gold joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to set the record straight about hydroxychloroquine -- what it is, how it works, and the real reason for all the current controversy surrounding a centuries-old medication.

Dr. Gold is a board certified emergency physician. She graduated from Chicago Medical School before attending Stanford University Law School. She completed her residency in emergency medicine at Stony Brook University Hospital in New York, and worked in Washington D.C. for the Surgeon General, as well for the chairman of the Committee on Labor and Human Resources. She works as an emergency physician on the front lines, whether or not there is a pandemic, and her clinical work serves all Americans from urban inner city to suburban and the Native American population. Her legal practice focuses on policy issues relating to law and medicine.

She is also the founder of America's frontline doctors, a group of doctors who have been under attack this week for speaking out about hydroxychloroquine during a news conference held outside the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington D.C.

On the program, Dr. Gold emphasized that the controversy over hydroxychloroquine is a "complete myth."

"Hydroxychloroquine is an analogue or a derivative of quinine, which is found in tree bark. It's the most noncontroversial of medications that there is," she explained.

"It's been around for centuries and it's been FDA-approved in the modern version, called hydroxychloroquine, for 65 years. In all of that time, [doctors] used it for breast-feeding women, pregnant women, elderly, children, and immune compromised. The typical use is for years or even decades because we give it mostly to RA, rheumatoid arthritis patients and lupus patients who need to be on it, essentially, all of their life. So, we have extensive experience with it ... it's one of the most commonly used medications throughout the world."

Dr. Gold told Glenn she was surprised when the media suddenly "vomited all over hydroxychloroquine", but initially chalked it up to the left's predictable hatred for anything President Donald Trump endorses. However, when the media gave the drug Remdesivir glowing reviews, despite disappointing clinical trial results, she decided to do some research.

"[Remdesivir] certainly wasn't a fabulous drug, but the media coverage was all about how fabulous it was. At that moment, I thought that was really weird. Because it's one thing to hate hydroxychloroquine because the president [endorsed] it. But it's another thing to give a free pass to another medicine that doesn't seem that great. I thought that was really weird, so I started looking into it. And let me tell you, what I discovered was absolutely shocking," she said.

According to the mainstream media's COVID-19 narrative, the president is "ignoring" the crisis.

On tonight's "Glenn TV" special, Glenn Beck exposes the media's last four months of political theater that has helped shape America's confusion and fear over coronavirus. And now, with a new school year looming on the horizon, the ongoing hysteria has enormous ramifications for our children, but the media is working overtime to paint the Trump administration as anti-science Neanderthals who want to send children and teachers off to die by reopening schools.

Glenn fights back with the facts and interviews the medical doctor Big Tech fears the most. Dr. Simone Gold, founder of America's Frontline Doctors, stands up to the media's smear campaign and explains why she could no longer stay silent in her fight against coronavirus fear.

It's high time to leave the partisan politics behind and focus on the facts about face masks and whether or not they really work against COVID-19.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck spoke with Drs. Scott Jensen and George Rutherford about the scientific evidence that proves or disproves the effectiveness of mask wearing to stop the spread of the coronavirus. Then, Dr. Karyln Borysenko joined to break down where the massive political divide over masks came from in the first place.

"I think if we were to talk about this a couple months ago, I might have said, 'Well, there's the science of masks, and there's the emotions of masks.' But, unfortunately, there's something in between," Jensen said. "I would have thought that the science of masks would have to do with the physics of masks, so I did a video a couple months ago where I talked about the pore side of a cotton mask or a surgical mask."

He explained that properly worn masks can help reduce the spread of virus particles, but cautioned against a false-sense of security when wearing a mask because they are far from providing complete protection.

"If you have a triple-ply mask, the pore size will end up being effectively five microns. And five microns, to a COVID-19 virus particle, is 50 times larger. That's approximately the same differential between the two-inch separation between the wires of a chain-link fence, and a gnat," Jensen explained.

"But now what we're seeing is if we have some collision of COVID-19 viral particles with the latticework of any mask ... if you're breathing out or breathing in and the viral particles collide with the actual latticework of a mask, I think intuitively, yes, we can reduce the amount of virus particles that are going back and forth."

Dr. Rutherford said masks are essential tools for fighting COVID-19, as long as you wear them correctly. He laid out the three main reasons he believes we should all be wearing masks.

"So, we're trying to do three things," he said. "First of all, we're trying to protect the people around you, in case you are one of the 60% of people who have asymptomatic infection and don't know it. The second thing we're trying to do is to protect you. The third thing we're trying to do is, if you get infected, you'll get infected at a lower dose, and then you're less likely to develop symptoms. That's the threefer."
