Couple Sank Boat They Sold Everything to Buy. The Internet Wants to Give Them a Second Chance.

It’s a story that could only happen in 2018.

Nikki Walsh, 24, and her boyfriend, Tanner Broadwell, 26, dreamed of leaving behind a normal life and sailing the Caribbean. They sold everything they could and bought a 28-foot sailboat for $5,000.

Unfortunately, the couple didn’t have sailing experience prior to buying the boat, and they didn’t buy insurance. Broadwell’s father taught the pair to sail, but it wasn’t enough to help them navigate the foggy night when the sailboat hit something in the water and capsized.

Walsh and Broadwell aren’t ready to “give up on their dreams,” and apparently, people don’t mind helping them. The couple’s GoFundMe page has raised more than $14,800 so far to finance the couple’s sailing dream, surpassing their $10K goal.

Glenn and Stu talked about this unbelievable millennial story on today’s show.

GLENN: So tonight you don't want to miss TV. There is something really wrong. (?) and we're going to use just the facts from the New York Times. Of course not yesterday's New York Times. We're going to tie a few stories together for the New York Times because they refuse to tie them together for themselves. So we will show you that tonight at 5 o'clock with the rest of the media, would like to pretend this isn't the article you're looking for.

STU: And then at 5:30, the news and why it matters. The brand-new (?) please check that out. (?) Sarah Gonzalez.

GLENN: So some millennials got into a boat.

STU: They did. This is a very sad show today.

GLENN: Sounds like a joke.

STU: First of all, we sound (?) disappointed by the experience.

GLENN: That was a really sad --

STU: That was -- (?)

GLENN: They did -- you know, meanwhile, stuff. They weren't beheading people.

STU: Some millennials decided they wanted to leave the world behind. Because how can we live our lives when we're working most of the day and you have to pay so much just to live.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh.

STU: So purchase (?) a boat that is 50 years old. They sold all their possessions. Bought this boat. Decided to embark on their journey. There was one problem. Neither of them had learned how to sail. They also didn't buy insurance.

GLENN: Okay. All right.

STU: Perhaps, (?)

GLENN: The nice thing about boats, Stu. Once you buy it, you don't have to (?)

STU: No maintenance costs. There's no effort at all.

GLENN: Those are easy. Those are great.

STU: Well, they capsized (?) to Key West. They were pulled into a channel. Ran aground on a sandbar. Either were hurt. They did save their dog. And they tried to get the internet to pay for their new boat. They needed $10,000 to salvage their boat. And they still don't know how to sail. They still have not (?) 13,108 I couldn't even dollars because the rest of society is so stupid.

GLENN: Misses me off. Oh, my gosh. Oh, my gosh. We'll see you tonight at 5:00.

Biden's Big Speech: The Glenn Beck & Mark Levin Rebuttal

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.

THE GLENN BECK PODCAST

Is 2022 Our Last Chance to Save America? | Victor Davis Hanson | Ep 105

Do you know where your water comes from? Renowned historian and conservative commentator Victor Davis Hanson gets his water from a well on his family farm. He pumps it himself. And he believes that's what more Americans need — to be grounded and stop taking so much for granted. Hanson joins Glenn to point out that this needs to happen soon, because as he describes in his new article, "The 10 Radical New Rules That Are Changing America," things are getting ... bleak. The Left is subverting the Constitution more every day. The value of the dollar is dropping. The media has fused with the radical Left. Corporations, Hollywood, Silicon Valley are all working together to increase their power and their wokeness. And academia isn't any better — as a senior fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution, Hanson has watched for himself the deterioration of constitutional rights on campus. And as a historian, he knows how all of this usually ends — and what we must do to prevent it.

Dollar Decimation: How Biden’s Spending Spree Will End Our Currency

If it feels like the U.S. government is spending money like it's going out of style, it's because it is.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes the TRUE state of our economy that the Biden administration doesn't want you to see. Obama kicked off a spending spree that was continued under the Trump administration, and now President Joe Biden will finally push us over the ledge with the $2.3 TRILLION "infrastructure" deal.

All signs point to a major economic disaster. And the perfect storm is brewing to convert the greenback into a new digital currency. Think Bitcoin, but with CENTRAL bank control, where we could see the end of private savings and private spending and your finances are tracked. Every time our money gets converted, your wallet will take the losses.

WATCH: Glenn on Tucker: After Chauvin Verdict we CAN come together

Emotions are high and regardless of how you interpret what happened that day between Derek Chauvin and George Floyd, the wounds are deep. Politics swooped in and took an event that horrified everyone and turned it into a team sport, only deepening the divide.

Glenn joined Tucker Carlson on Tuesday night to discuss a less political way forward.
