Behind the Scenes: Nobody Expected Glenn's New Chalkboard to Be Like This

When Glenn called a brief meeting to go over the upcoming chalkboard show he's launching later this month, nobody expected anything unusual to happen. After all, plans had been set and the purpose of this meeting was simply to get everyone on the same page, right?

Wrong.

As staff members filed into Stage 33, where the new show will be filmed, Glenn's executive producer Stu Burgiere could be heard going over the features of the new chalkboard.

Everything seemed normal at first. Glenn was listening to Stu and quietly nodding. Stu explained how Glenn would be able to interact with the new three-paneled expandable chalkboard, being careful not to touch the panels --- still drying from a fresh coat of chalkboard paint.

If there's anything predictable about Glenn, it's his that he's unpredictable.

Glenn paused. Then innocently asked if someone could hand him a piece of chalk.

Stu immediately suggested nobody get him a piece of chalk, perhaps realizing what was going to happen before Glenn even did anything. Someone handed Glenn a piece of chalk and the rest is history.

Glenn began scribbling rapidly.

"What if we put a timeline here, from the Tower of Babel until now, so we could show people exactly at what point in history we're talking about," Glenn said. "And if I draw a picture of someone here, can we make it talk?"

He was talking about bringing the chalkboard to life using movie magic.

"We may run into issues with the animation," Stu said. "There's a zillion things we can do here, we just really need to be methodical about what we're doing."

Glenn said he wants the new show to have a classic style that's familiar to people who enjoyed his past chalkboard episodes, while also appealing to families and young people.

"Let's think of this as a magic chalkboard time-machine," Glenn said to one of the designers in the room. "Give me some pens and I can start working on these right now."

The creative juices flowing freely, Glenn grabbed a couple of colored Sharpie markers, stretched out on the rug and got to work constructing the script for the first show.

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.
