How did Glenn and his team pull off The Man in the Moon?

TheBlaze TV subscribers can watch the full special on demand to get an unprecedented behind-the-scenes look at the origins of The Man in the Moon, the challenges faced by the production team, the practice of the flag raising, and an up close and personal look at Glenn's life for the past year.  

By now, you've probably heard the story of how The Man in the Moon faced tremendous challenges leading up to the big premiere on July 6th. Unpredictable weather and technological difficulties plagued the show during rehearsals, and as a result no one - including Glenn - had ever seen the The Man in the Moon performed live prior to the event. And then just hours before the premiere, storms almost meant that Glenn's company would have to financially guarantee the $600,000 projectors that could have been damaged due to the rain. But what happened just a few feet behind the giant inflated moon as these decisions were being made?

Mark Mabry, one of the producers of The Man in the Moon, documented the events as part of a special that aired on TheBlaze TV on Friday. In the special, he spent a lot of time  focusing on the relationship between Glenn and his business partner, Chris Balfe.

Glenn has often compared their relationship to that of Walt and Roy Disney. While Walt was always the creative genius churning out idea after idea, Roy was the one who made sure the company was financially stable. For TheBlaze and Mercury Radio Arts, Glenn and Chris certainly fill those roles.

In candid interviews with Mabry months before The Man in the Moon, Glenn said that his Roy (Balfe) would tell him he needed to "focus on the movies", i.e. the divisions that generated revenue for the company and kept it stable, and not spend his time on his wild ideas that many might view as impractical. But Glenn also knew that Chris would do what Roy always did for Walt when Walt had a big, wild idea: find a way to make it a success.

And that's exactly what happened at The Man in the Moon.

Chris and Glenn decided to go on "God Insurance" and risk the $600,000 projectors to give the audience the best experience possible, and their gamble paid off with a nearly flawless performance.

As soon as Glenn announced to the audience they would be going on with the show, the skies cleared and a rainbow appeared over the USANA Amphitheater. Glenn soon welcomed them to the opening and "first dress rehearsal", and soon the sold-out crowd witnessed Glenn and his companies first big move into entertainment.

The Man in the Moon was dedicated to Patricia Balfe, Chris's mom, who passed away a few weeks before the show. Chris, alongside his brothers Kevin and Colin, had no idea that Glenn dedicated to the show to their mom until they saw the tribute at the end of the show's premiere.

 

 

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.
