This man had been drinking since six in the morning before reaching out for help. Glenn gave him the same advice that had saved his own life

Things got very serious and emotional on radio this morning when a caller reached out looking for answers. Ed, a listener from Massachusetts, called into the show looking for help and guidance in his struggle with alcoholism. Ed had just quit his job as a bus driver because his withdrawal symptoms had endangered the kids. Glenn, a recovering alcoholic himself, did his best to put Ed on the right path, discussing how faith helped save his life and asking Ed to get himself to an Alcoholic Anonymous meeting as soon as possible.


"Well, yesterday I lost my job because I promised myself that I would never jeopardize the kids. I'm a school bus driver. So I told them that I was quitting," Ed said. "Because of my shakes, and I was withdrawing really bad."

Ed admitted he had been drinking since the early morning, and was already quite drunk when he called into the show.

"Do you want to be sober?" Glenn asked.

"God yeah. Oh, God, yes."

"Well, you won't make it without two things. You won't make it without God, and you won't make it without AA," Glenn said.

"Here's the thing, the whole God thing, that's what I was calling about. I don't know that I believe in God," Ed said.

"Neither did I. Neither did I," Glenn said. "In fact, when I was in exactly your same shoes where I was trying to hold my sobriety, I couldn't. And I read a letter from Thomas Jefferson to his nephew Peter Carr, and it got to religion. And he said to Peter: If you're going to be a man, these are the things you have to know. And when it comes to religion, above all things, fix reason firmly in her seat, and question with boldness even the very existence of God. For if there be a God, he must surely rather honest questioning over blindfolded fear."

What Jefferson was trying to tell Peter was that if there is a God, you will find him but you have to want to find him and be willing to look for him everywhere. Glenn asked Ed to look at the seeming coincidences that led to Ed making it on to the air to have a conversation.

"Ed, do you know how few calls I take? How long have you listened to this program?" Glenn said. "Don't appreciate the phone screener. Don't appreciate me. Don't appreciate anything. It's not a coincidence. Out of all the phone calls that come in, out of all of the times, out of all of the days, your phone call comes in today, and I decide today I'm going to take phone calls, and you're on the air. That's not a coincidence."

"Everything in your life, Ed, is a message, and here's what the message is: God is your father, whether you recognize him or not. He's your father. You can dress him any way you want. You can make him look any way you want, but it doesn't change him, it only changes our access to him, if you will, but it doesn't change him. He is our dad, and he always will be our dad. And he loves us no matter what we do. And there's nothing in your life that has happened to you that he hasn't been there the whole time. No matter what -- no matter what it has been. No matter how bad it's been to you or no matter what how bad it was that you did, he was there. So he already knows. There's no hiding from him."

"I wish I was as strong as you," Ed said.

"Well, you will be, Ed, if you choose to be, one day you will be," Glenn said. "I love you. Get to an AA meeting today. Would you hang up the phone and get to an AA meeting today. Would you do that?"

"I will do that. Yes, I will," Ed said.

After Ed hung up to go get help, Glenn took a minute to talk to the audience about the struggles we all face everyday.

"You're struggling with whatever you're struggling with. And you're looking at everybody else and saying, how do they do it? The answer: They don't. We can't judge people because we don't know what's going on in their lives.

We don't know what others are struggling with. But the best thing that we can do is just admit to ourselves, I can't make it. I can't make it on my own. I can't make it on my own. I'm going to find a way, but I can't compare myself to others, and I'm not going to be perfect. And I need others. And I'm not going to look at everybody else and say, oh, wow, they're so perfect because they're not. Nobody is. They're all struggling. Every single one of us is struggling with something deep and powerful and we don't even know it. We just need to be there for each other."

"Life is a hospital. We are all patients. There is only one doctor."


Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."

Glenn Beck has had enough of exposing scandal after scandal, just to have everyone look the other way: Benghazi, Hillary Clinton's emails, Joe and Hunter Biden's dealings in Ukraine and China … the list goes on, but no consequences are paid. Now, the media have called the election for Joe Biden and insist no one can question it. But for many of the more than 71 million people who voted for President Trump, our search for the truth isn't over yet.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn called out the left's long list of alleged corruption that has gone unchecked and stressed that Donald Trump's legal team must be allowed to go through the process of investigating the multiple allegations of election fraud to ensure our voting systems are fair.

"I don't know about you, but I'm tired. I am worn out. I am fed up!" Glenn said during his opening monologue. "I've had enough. I am tired of exposing corruption, doing our homework, even going overseas and having documents translated to make sure they're exactly right, [and] presenting the evidence ... except, once we expose it, nothing happens. Nobody goes to jail. Nobody pays for a damn thing any more!"
