We premiered episode number one of hiSTORY about Tesla and Edison. It's a two-part episode, and you can watch the first one for free, in its entirety, at GlennBeck.com. We're giving you this free sneak peek for the next day or two. Part two is really remarkable as well, and it will air next Tuesday. These will all available as free podcasts as well.
I'm really trying to concentrate on history and tell the stories that connect us to our principles. And, quite honestly, correct some of the mistakes of history. One of those mistakes, I think, is the battle of the currents between Edison and Tesla. It's different from the story most people tell.
The central character that drives this story, really, is a murderer. And while our history books make it seem as if Edison won, it was really Tesla. Edison was a very bad guy. He was a guy that colluded with the government, colluded with big business, colluded with Wall Street and stomped out the competition. Tesla is the real hero, and I think we have a perspective on Tesla that is unlike anything I've ever heard before.
Also, I want to thank you. I was so happy to read the reviews yesterday from TheBlaze subscribers. Here are just a few:
Glenn, the show was great. I watched the Think Tank show yesterday on demand. Finally, the shows I've been waiting for you to do for so long. I can't wait to see what else you have in store for us with The Vault.
Mr. Beck, brilliant. You're a master storyteller. Thank you. Thank you. And, again, thank you. This is by far a favorite for me.
Glenn, loved the show. Fantastic storyteller. I already knew that. But this was outstanding. Can't wait for the next show.
Glenn, that first episode was fantastic. Can't wait for number two. I was in the hotel electrical supply business for 30 years. I've been interested in George Westinghouse, as he was instrumental in the modern electrical systems. Thanks so much.
Glenn, loved the show tonight. His Story. I don't think I can wait till next week to hear the conclusion. You're killing me. Keep these shows coming.
Glenn, it was awesome. Can't wait to see what TheBlaze has in store. The new shows are amazing.
Glenn, loved tonight's episode. History is so much more interesting when it's told as a story. Can't wait until next week.
Glenn, my daughter and I curled up on the couch and we watched it. We can't wait for the next week to get here. Thanks for making history interesting for me and my daughter.
This new season takes things in a whole new direction, and I'm so pleased you're coming with us on this journey.
One person on Facebook said, Glenn, I see light in your eyes. There were several people that said this is the Glenn we've been waiting for. They saw it again in my face, and that is true. I love history. And I love learning history to be able to do these stories.
I hope you also enjoy our new show called Vault. We recently taped an episode, and I am so excited. Ellen, who is head of content, was on the set with us and I asked, Is this all making sense? because I just tell the stories. She said, Your excitement to learn about this is infectious. We're all learning together, and it's fantastic.
If you want to learn about history -- but more importantly, the principles behind the stories and what they teach us --- join us for our new season featuring hiSTORY and Vault, available on The Blaze TV.
