GLENN: We've been talking about, you know, this nationalization of things that are too big to fail and, what was it, about a week ago or two weeks ago I mentioned, I saw some I saw some story in some newspaper that Coldstone Creamery was closing a couple of stores and I said, they are too yummy to fail. And I used Coldstone Creamery as, if you're going to bail somebody out, these are the people I want you to bail out! Let's socialize Coldstone Creamery, free ice cream for everybody. I'll give you my copay of a buck: I'm sorry, I need a gallon of that, please. That's who we bail out. Freddie and Fannie who? What? I don't think so. Go save the ice cream people.

Well, I did this whole thing on it and almost immediately we got an e mail from the big wigs at Coldstone Creamery appreciating our support but reminding me that they don't need a bailout and I just wrote back, if you ever do, you are going to need a fat friend like me.

So Dan Beem, what are you? Are you the are you the ice cream president?

BEEM: I am the president of Coldstone Creamery, Glenn.

GLENN: Where do you live?

BEEM: We're out of Scottsdale, Arizona.

GLENN: Perfect place to have ice cream.

BEEM: Nice and hot, good for eaters.

GLENN: So Dan, you are not closing down?

BEEM: We are not closing down.

GLENN: Because this will be I'm telling you I will rally the troops, and I mean literal troops. If we have to use the National Guard to keep those doors open, we will.

BEEM: Well, we definitely appreciate your support, that's for sure.

GLENN: I just want you to know that. So I just got a, just like a I don't even know, freezerful of ice cream here and you have asked if we wanted to make our own flavor.

BEEM: We did.

GLENN: Yeah. Now, is this just some is this just some thing just so I will eat ice cream and then and just be happy? Because I am. Or is this really something that you're saying, no, really, we'll have you make a flavor and then people can come in and ask for it?

BEEM: I think it's actually we're going to have you make a flavor and people can come in and ask for it.

GLENN: That's fantastic. That's fantastic. Okay. Stu, you tried the flavor. What do you think?

STU: The flavor's excellent.

GLENN: Okay.

STU: This is a good decision by you.

GLENN: Now, Dan, how do you work out the flavors, like the percentages of stuff?

BEEM: Well, we're fortunate that we have a full time taste master here

GLENN: Wait, wait, how do I apply? How do you apply? No, seriously if I ever want to change jobs like this afternoon, how do I apply?

BEEM: Give me a call. We'll see if we can get you in.

GLENN: Oh, I'd be your best taste tester, I would. I would. Do you have to work out for that or anything?

BEEM: No. I think you just have to have a pretty good chemistry degree to figure it all out.

GLENN: What?

BEEM: Just a good chemistry degree.

GLENN: Let's say that I had one from the University of Antigua.

BEEM: As long as you provide me a certificate, we're good to go.

GLENN: Do you check into the authenticity of the certificate?

BEEM: Absolutely not.

GLENN: I will talk to you this afternoon.

So here's what it is. Cake batter and then Graham cracker crust, you know, Graham crackers.

BEEM: Yep.

GLENN: And then just a whole buttload of blueberries. I don't know if that's that's the way we used to talk about it in chemistry class in the University of Antigua.

BEEM: I like it.

GLENN: Then marshmallows. You mix it all together but the balance has to be right. Because it's got to have that real blueberry flavor in the cake batter. You know what I mean?

BEEM: I do.

GLENN: And it has to have the really good it's very heavy on the ingredients.

BEEM: We like that indulgence.

GLENN: You see what I mean?

BEEM: Yep.

GLENN: Oh, that's a good word, indulgence.

STU: Glenn, are you going to accept my gang of one compromise on your flavor?

GLENN: Nope.

STU: In which like, you know when you have macaroni and cheese and they sprinkle the breadcrumbs on top? I support sprinkling some dry Graham cracker crust on top as well.

GLENN: I'll give you that. That's good.

STU: Thank you.

GLENN: What do you think?

BEEM: I tell you you know you pick the cake batter ice cream as the flavor, did you know that was invented by a franchisee?

GLENN: Was it really?

BEEM: It was. We get some of our best ideas from franchisees.

GLENN: Is it like, well, we just called up Dow and said, can you make Clorox taste like cake? I don't want to know if it's like something you just add in that's all chemicals.

BEEM: No, they are just incredibly creative, they kind of experiment at the store level and they pass their best ideas on to us here. We have our taste master look at it and if we think it's a good idea, we put it into play.

GLENN: What's the most popular combo?

BEEM: As far as a creation?

GLENN: Yeah.

BEEM: I think it's probably that Oreo Overload, Oreo, some fudge and some chocolate chips.

GLENN: When you're in, like, a meeting, okay?

BEEM: Yeah.

GLENN: Do you have these ice cream meetings?

BEEM: Every meeting, Glenn. In fact, we start off usually with some research and development meetings in the morning at 7:30, we start off our day by eating ice cream.

GLENN: What time are you available to talk today about that opening? Seriously.

BEEM: Anytime you'd like.

GLENN: 1:00 ish? Anytime you'd like.

BEEM: Sure.

GLENN: This is the best job ever. You realize that, right? Oh, don't tell me that you get sick of it. Are you sick of ice cream?

BEEM: No, Glenn. I do have the best job in the world. I mean, I work with talented people. But a funny story is I used to work with NASCAR on the East Coast and we got the job offer to come out here and I told my son that I was going to come to work for Coldstone Creamery. Well, he went and told all of his teachers and his friends that we were moving to Arizona because I was going to drive an ice cream truck. So although it's not the ice cream truck job, pretty fantastic.

GLENN: Yeah, tell your son you can't eat NASCARs.

BEEM: True.

GLENN: Just saying. So have you ever sat in the meeting, you know, with all the ice cream experts like me and somebody says, "Okay, guys, I had an idea last night, your mouth ever just water? Do you guys have spittoons or anything just so you can get the spit out of your because your mouth is watering so much? Because you were describing the thing, the best seller? My mouth started to water. I'm just saying. These are the questions that I ask that everybody else is afraid of or... no, don't do a lot of interviews on this program which is strange. But anyway, go ahead, Dan.

BEEM: No, that's a great point. I think that's how we got something if we know's going to be a home run. If we look around the table and our mouths are watering, we immediately start to do the research on it.

GLENN: Yes. Have you ever heard an idea and then you tried it and you went, you know, on second thought somebody at the table we all looked at each other and somebody should have just said, "I don't think that one's going to work."

BEEM: We had a promotion a couple of years ago called Red Pan where we put a different flavor ice cream into our dipping cabinet every month and we got pretty creative back there, everything from Red Hot to Wasabi Ginger. The Wasabi Ginger is one that probably shouldn't have Mead it through the table.

GLENN: Have you ever thought of bean ice cream, like baked bean, baked bean ice cream?

BEEM: I haven't, but I'll write it down for everybody to try out.

GLENN: I wouldn't. I'd give that one to friendlies. Do you ever is there an Slugworth kind of character in the ice cream, you know, kind of that espionage, kind of Willy Wonka and the chocolate factory, that's Slugworth trying to get your everlasting Gobstopper recipe? Does that go on in the ice cream world?

BEEM: I'm sure there's a setup but our security's pretty good.

GLENN: Really? What is ice cream security really like? Dan, that's another, "I'm here to protect the ice cream! I'm going down with the ice cream!" Dan, so we give you this recipe and how do you you'll just come up with the right mixture of it and then when would it be available?

BEEM: Well, what I think we probably need to do is we'll take this, let our taste master play with it, get the proportions correct. We'll actually send it back to you to make sure that it's good and if you like the proportion, then I think we just put it on your website, people can print it out and bring it in to the stores.

GLENN: I may, I may not like the first draft. I'm just saying.

BEEM: Well, we like to get it right. So we'll go through as many drafts as you need.

GLENN: I'm a stickler on perfection, Dan. I just might have to try a few. Okay, Dan, thanks a lot, man, appreciate it.

BEEM: Thanks, Glenn.

GLENN: All right. Bye bye.

BEEM: Bye.

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."
