Tonight, TheBlaze kicks off its month of holiday programming with the premiere of the two-night special: Believe Again. On radio this morning, Glenn opened up about what it has been like to film these specials and what he hopes the audience will take from them.

“I am so excited for you to see the special tonight: Believe Again. If you happen to have TheBlaze on TV or if you're a subscriber, make sure you watch it tonight at 8:00pm ET,” Glenn said. “Watch it with your family. There's a whole week of specials this week and next week. This week is Believe Again tonight and tomorrow night, two-night special.”

Believe Again chronicles the journey of nine artists from diverse musical and religious backgrounds as they come together to produce and record an album of Christmas classics and originals. You can purchase the Believe Again album and learn more about the musicians HERE.

“I wrote to the staff last night after I watched it and I said, ‘Finally a reality show that actually has reality in it,’” Glenn said of Believe Again. “It captures the moment of: Can these people actually do this? Can they pull this off? And who are they? Who are they to think that they can do it? And the spirit that they come to this with is really remarkable.”

On Thursday, join Glenn and his family at their Idaho ranch as they rediscover the true spirit of Christmas in Searching for Grandpa’s Christmas.

“[On Thursday is] my family special from the house in the mountains. And we invite you for the first time to our house in the mountains,” Glenn said. “And it's a very different experience.”

The feel of the program is quite different from anything Glenn has ever done before, and it shows a side of Glenn and his family that is rarely captured in public. Glenn’s executive producer Tiffany, who has been with him since his time at CNN, wrote Glenn last night to express how special this particular project has been for her.

“I wrote [to Tiffany] because I saw a part of it last night, and there's a portion where Raphe and I go out in the morning, and we're milking cow and there were some really funny exchanges in there,” Glenn explained. “And I wrote, you know, ‘How come you took out all the funny parts because the cow was funny.’ You know, in a 12-year-old boy sort of way, it was funny. And she said, ‘Well, I suppose we could add some out takes, but there's something so peaceful about you and Raphe out there together.”

“This special feels so organic to me. I feel like I'm experiencing all of this with your family,” Tiffany wrote to Glenn. “Call me crazy, but there is a simple beauty to all of this that makes me understand the spirit of Christmas. And growing up Jewish, I have never felt that before. It's raw, honest, and beautiful all at the same time. I could be biased, but I can't help tearing up every time I've watched it.”

Next week, follow brothers Brett and Brandon Stewart of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra as they transform 800 ordinary vocalists and musicians into a multi-faith choir. Get an inside look at the entire process from auditions to rehearsals to their final two-part performance.

In addition, you won’t want to miss the Liberty Treehouse and Wonderful World of Stu Christmas specials.

“Probably the biggest one, obviously I would think, [is Wonderful World of Stu],

Stu joked.

“I would think it was the biggest one because you had this entire studio… nobody had moved for four days. The studio is closed. Nothing is happening,” Glenn explained. “And all of a sudden I'm getting phone calls from people and they are like, ‘Stu needs a ski lift.’ And, ‘We've already airlifted three of the people because they were in car accidents trying to get to the studio to film his Christmas special.’”

“I don't care about your car accidents,” Stu quipped. “Get to the studio for the Wonderful World of Stu Christmas special.”

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.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.
