Life has a way of kicking you in the pants sometimes and we've had a few of those events in recent weeks. The silver linings in times like these are gaining a greater appreciation for your family and friends. Family isn't only blood. Family includes all those that have an impact on your heart and help you foster love and make the world a better place.

As a staff and as an audience, we can all say Glenn and Stu are our family. They work tirelessly to bring information to you but it's not for the paycheck. Their hearts are so full of love for you that they put in the long hours needed to be what you need them to be because of the love that has been fostered with you.

Stu a.k.a Steven Burguiere celebrated his birthday on February 9th with his daughter Ainslee with whom he shares a birthday.


Sunday the 10th is when the "Big Guy" celebrated his birthday. If you've been following the show as of late, Glenn has been whining about his new diet.

Glenn hasn't mentioned what he had planned for his birthday, but an educated guess might conclude it did not involve cake.

As this childhood birthday photograph attests, nobody loves Glenn more than his big sister, Michelle.

Watch Michelle's birthday message to her little brother, Glenn, below:

We all love Glenn and Stu and feel like they're family, so we thought we'd let you write in with your birthday wishes. We had messages pour in from California to Florida and even Scotland. Here are just a few of the many birthday wishes from listeners:

Glenn and Steve, thank you for being lights in the storm, voices of reason in a crazy world and the perfect combination of broadcasters. Wishing you both another healthy, happy and successful year. May God bless you and your families. After losing Doc this week, it really made me realize how much y'all impact my day. I invite you into my home 3-4 hours a day. That is more than any other guest. I know it is a one way relationship, but that relationship has changed my life. So thank you. HAPPY BIRTHDAY fellas! 🎊 — Shelley
Happy birthday Glenn and Stu ! Love you both and appreciate everyday what you do. I was with you in DC, Israel, Dallas, Salt Lake City and Birmingham . Thanks for the wonderful memories. — Diana from Rose Hill, Kansas
Glenn Beck, it's my joy to celebrate another year of your life! Who would have known that a sick twisted freak from the Pacific northwest would be one of the impactful men of our time. I thank God in heaven for the gift of you, and I pray we get to celebrate you for many, many more outrageous years! Happy Birthday from Dory Ann in Buffalo, N.Y.. [no relation to those jholes downstate] xoxo
Happy birthday Glenn and happy belated birthday Stu! Ya'll are like family to me and to so many others. Thank you for not just talking the talk but for always walking the walk as well, with dignity and grace. You work so hard to keep us informed and to seek truth. I have learned so much from both of you over the last 10 years through laughter and tears. You have helped to open my mind, spirit and heart over the years, a truly priceless gift. Thank you for fighting for we the people and for empowering us to seek truth and love. ♡ Big hugs to you both!!!! Love, Holly from Raleigh, NC
Dear Stu and Glenn, you and The Blaze bring quality information into our homes and lives everyday, but you do more than that. You also exhibit a Christ driven example of leadership for all of us to mirror. Not 'I am your leader', more of a 'this is how I think He wants us to be'. This is how we may save our America and those who depend on her, if it is in His will. Huge thanks to you and your staff for the true journalism and fact finding, and showing us the path for our own truth quest. Aaaaannnd.......you share a birthday with my lovely first born daughter. February 9th is really 'gift' day to us all, isn't it? — Caterina from Los Lunas, New Mexico
Happy Birthday, Glenn and Stu 🎁🎂 I have learned so much from you over the years, I have learned to grow my thinking, and I have even changed my views after reading and studying what you've said. Thank you for your hard work, diligence, commitment to our great nation, and for teaching and leading those of us who listen and follow. God bless you and keep you❣️— Amy from Waco, Texas
Happy birthday (February 9th for Steve "Stu" Burguiere and February 10th for Glenn Beck)! May we stand with you to assist others to join "Outrage Anonymous" so that we may all recover from our irrational addiction to thinking that getting upset and angry will solve our problems rather than employ the cool-headed and evenhanded critical thinking that you espouse every single day that is the only way to bring us all together and ensure a world and country that we can all be proud of for generations to come. — Zagros from Winston-Salem, North Carolina
Happy Birthday Stu! Happy Birthday Glenn! Thank you for all you do! I learn something new everyday! God Bless!!! — Teresa from Rock Valley, Iowa
Happy Birthday Glenn and Stu! Thank you for being voices of reason. Our Captain, and First Mate on this ship that feels rickety at times, charting the turbulent seas that our country has become. Your words often echo what we are already feeling, and many times you provide a measured approach to discourse that we have with friends and family. We appreciate all your work. All the 'news' you watch so we don't have to! We are all trying to ring the bell, show the way. You help us find each other and feel less alone. Only God knows how this will progress. But along the way, because of you and all of your team at the Blaze, Mercury One, O.U.R., we have met wonderful fellow travelers and learned the true meaning of charity. — Jean from West Palm Beach, Florida

Longtime listeners know that Glenn and Pat exchange the same pair of pants as a gift each year and have done so for decades. They may be the ugliest pair of pants ever designed, but they will live on in infamy on the Glenn Beck Program. That's all fun and games but have you ever wondered what Glenn gives Stu as a gift?

This year at least, he spared the only conservative vegetarian and did not send a meat basket.

We couldn't include all the messages sent in but thank you to all who did. Words cannot express how much this audience is connected and how much love we've shared over the years. You never know how long you've got and you never know how much we mean to each other so now is the time to express just how much we care about one another.

God bless and happy birthday Glenn and Stu!

Fox News host Greg Gutfeld joined Glenn on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to talk about his new book, "The Plus: Self-Help for People Who Hate Self-Help."

Greg admits he is probably the last person who should write a self-help book. Nevertheless, he offers his offbeat advice on how to save America during what has become one of the most tumultuous times in history, as well as drinking while tweeting (spoiler: don't do it).

He also shares his "evolution" on President Donald Trump, his prediction for the election, and what it means to be an agnostic-atheist.

In this clip, Greg shares what he calls his "first great epiphany" on how dangerous cancel culture has become.

"I believe that cancel culture is the first successful work-around of the First Amendment," he said. "Because freedom of speech doesn't protect me from my career being ruined, my livelihood being destroyed, or me getting so depressed I commit suicide. Cancel culture is the first successful work-around of freedom of speech. It can oppress your speech with the scepter of destruction. We don't have freedom of speech anymore."

Dr. Simone Gold joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to set the record straight about hydroxychloroquine -- what it is, how it works, and the real reason for all the current controversy surrounding a centuries-old medication.

Dr. Gold is a board certified emergency physician. She graduated from Chicago Medical School before attending Stanford University Law School. She completed her residency in emergency medicine at Stony Brook University Hospital in New York, and worked in Washington D.C. for the Surgeon General, as well for the chairman of the Committee on Labor and Human Resources. She works as an emergency physician on the front lines, whether or not there is a pandemic, and her clinical work serves all Americans from urban inner city to suburban and the Native American population. Her legal practice focuses on policy issues relating to law and medicine.

She is also the founder of America's frontline doctors, a group of doctors who have been under attack this week for speaking out about hydroxychloroquine during a news conference held outside the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington D.C.

On the program, Dr. Gold emphasized that the controversy over hydroxychloroquine is a "complete myth."

"Hydroxychloroquine is an analogue or a derivative of quinine, which is found in tree bark. It's the most noncontroversial of medications that there is," she explained.

"It's been around for centuries and it's been FDA-approved in the modern version, called hydroxychloroquine, for 65 years. In all of that time, [doctors] used it for breast-feeding women, pregnant women, elderly, children, and immune compromised. The typical use is for years or even decades because we give it mostly to RA, rheumatoid arthritis patients and lupus patients who need to be on it, essentially, all of their life. So, we have extensive experience with it ... it's one of the most commonly used medications throughout the world."

Dr. Gold told Glenn she was surprised when the media suddenly "vomited all over hydroxychloroquine", but initially chalked it up to the left's predictable hatred for anything President Donald Trump endorses. However, when the media gave the drug Remdesivir glowing reviews, despite disappointing clinical trial results, she decided to do some research.

"[Remdesivir] certainly wasn't a fabulous drug, but the media coverage was all about how fabulous it was. At that moment, I thought that was really weird. Because it's one thing to hate hydroxychloroquine because the president [endorsed] it. But it's another thing to give a free pass to another medicine that doesn't seem that great. I thought that was really weird, so I started looking into it. And let me tell you, what I discovered was absolutely shocking," she said.

According to the mainstream media's COVID-19 narrative, the president is "ignoring" the crisis.

On tonight's "Glenn TV" special, Glenn Beck exposes the media's last four months of political theater that has helped shape America's confusion and fear over coronavirus. And now, with a new school year looming on the horizon, the ongoing hysteria has enormous ramifications for our children, but the media is working overtime to paint the Trump administration as anti-science Neanderthals who want to send children and teachers off to die by reopening schools.

Glenn fights back with the facts and interviews the medical doctor Big Tech fears the most. Dr. Simone Gold, founder of America's Frontline Doctors, stands up to the media's smear campaign and explains why she could no longer stay silent in her fight against coronavirus fear.

It's high time to leave the partisan politics behind and focus on the facts about face masks and whether or not they really work against COVID-19.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck spoke with Drs. Scott Jensen and George Rutherford about the scientific evidence that proves or disproves the effectiveness of mask wearing to stop the spread of the coronavirus. Then, Dr. Karyln Borysenko joined to break down where the massive political divide over masks came from in the first place.

"I think if we were to talk about this a couple months ago, I might have said, 'Well, there's the science of masks, and there's the emotions of masks.' But, unfortunately, there's something in between," Jensen said. "I would have thought that the science of masks would have to do with the physics of masks, so I did a video a couple months ago where I talked about the pore side of a cotton mask or a surgical mask."

He explained that properly worn masks can help reduce the spread of virus particles, but cautioned against a false-sense of security when wearing a mask because they are far from providing complete protection.

"If you have a triple-ply mask, the pore size will end up being effectively five microns. And five microns, to a COVID-19 virus particle, is 50 times larger. That's approximately the same differential between the two-inch separation between the wires of a chain-link fence, and a gnat," Jensen explained.

"But now what we're seeing is if we have some collision of COVID-19 viral particles with the latticework of any mask ... if you're breathing out or breathing in and the viral particles collide with the actual latticework of a mask, I think intuitively, yes, we can reduce the amount of virus particles that are going back and forth."

Dr. Rutherford said masks are essential tools for fighting COVID-19, as long as you wear them correctly. He laid out the three main reasons he believes we should all be wearing masks.

"So, we're trying to do three things," he said. "First of all, we're trying to protect the people around you, in case you are one of the 60% of people who have asymptomatic infection and don't know it. The second thing we're trying to do is to protect you. The third thing we're trying to do is, if you get infected, you'll get infected at a lower dose, and then you're less likely to develop symptoms. That's the threefer."
