Two of the most influential radio personalities of the modern era sat down for an extended and fascinating conversation this morning. Glenn Beck appeared on The Howard Stern Show and discussed a wide range of topics, from the death of Glenn’s mother to why didn’t Glenn score any women while rising to fame (“how dare you” was Stern’s reply).
You can listen to the episode by starting a free trial for Sirius XM HERE (no credit card required) and navigating to Howard 100.
"He's a brilliant interviewer. He really is a brilliant interviewer. And had no idea who I was. I didn't know this, he used to watch me on FOX," Glenn said. "I thought he was very nice. He even corrected his language around me. He was very nice. He threw this word out. It was just stunning to me. You know, people don't talk that way around me. And he just -- and he's Howard Stern. And so he said something. And then he went, sorry. And he changed his language."
You might be surprised to see Glenn Beck and Howard Stern find common ground for over an hour given the very different content their radio shows have. But many fans of Howard's show reacted positively to the interview.

@glennbeck I just heard you on Stern, and read several of your tweets... I'm in awe. Brilliant.— Ray (@raycehamilton) June 17, 2015
Of course, there were a few that fell into the "not so nice category":
Howard Stern is so good at interviewing that he made Glenn Beck come off as likable @sternshow— My book is on Amazon (@sonnie_inkstar) June 17, 2015
