LENN: All right, I don't know who scheduled this, but this is not the day to do this because it's April 1st and I want to be very clear. This is not an April Fool -- because when I tell you what the announcement is, you are going to go, uh-huh, sure. And tomorrow may be too late for me to verify. Nope, now it's April 2nd and I can tell you that it is no joke. But we have an announcement.

Last -- in fact, let me bring -- can we bring Brad up, please? Is Brad on the phone? Brad?

PELO: I'm with you, Glenn. How are you?

GLENN: Very good.

PELO: Great to be with you.

GLENN: You are the -- what are you? The senior executive producer?

PELO: That's what they call me.

GLENN: Of America's Freedom Foundation and the Stadium of Fire.

PELO: The Stadium of Fire specifically, yes.

GLENN: You asked me last year if I would host the Stadium of Fire. It is the largest stadium fireworks show in the country.

PELO: Correct.

GLENN: And it is -- I have never seen anything like it. I have never been that close to fireworks, I have -- I've never seen anything like it. It is absolutely amazing, and it's on July 4th in Provo, Utah at the BYU stadium.

PELO: That's right. And it's taken 28 years to make the fireworks that close but they're there.

GLENN: I thought there were times that I was going to be set on fire. I really did. And there were a lot of people in the stadium that probably was hoping for that, but -- and fortunately didn't happen. So you asked me again to host it this year, which I'm just thrilled and honored to be a part of it. Last year you had Brooks and Dunn performing, correct? Was that --

PELO: That is right, yeah, Brooks and Dunn.

GLENN: Brooks and Dunn.

PELO: Great show.

GLENN: This year, and we're going to announce right now who is coming to the Stadium of Fire. Tickets -- well, the last time that this individual did a show, the performance last month had 72,000 seats at Reliant Stadium in Houston and it was sold out in a couple of minutes. This year you probably have the hardest ticket to get. You now have how many seats available for this particular performer? How many seats?

PELO: Well, we're going to try and make maybe up to 50,000. Right now we can verify 48,000 seats that we'll have available.

GLENN: Okay. And the tickets go on sail Friday?

PELO: Friday at 5:00.

GLENN: And the performer at the Stadium of Fire this year is Miley Cyrus. She plays Hannah Montana on -- I don't need to tell you. If you know who she is, then you are going, oh, my gosh. And if you know who she is, it's because you know your children are going to say, "Oh, my gosh" and you're going to have to get tickets and they sell out within a couple of minutes. So that's who's going to be performing on Fourth of July at the Stadium of Fire.

You also have the Blue Man Group that are performing, and they're fantastic. And then me. So --

PELO: And you are the best part, Glenn.

GLENN: (Laughing). Yeah. Well, actually, you know what? It's really cool. Because of Fourth of July it is -- I have been to the Fourth of July fireworks at the National Mall in Washington, D.C., I've seen the fireworks in Philadelphia, I've seen them in New York, I've seen them in Boston. I have never seen fireworks like this before. And more importantly, I have never been in a place that is not afraid to say, man, it's great to be in America and it's great to be an American and this is what it's all about. And actually the theme this year is what, Brad?

PELO: I am an American.

GLENN: It doesn't go any deeper than that. "I am an American." And do you want to reveal at all anything that you're planning?

PELO: Well, let me say this, and this is really an important element to our show and that is that our event, Stadium of Fire, is broadcast to the military throughout the world, at all the military bases, ships at sea. This is our sixth year having been invited to be a part of every military men and women's Independence Day celebration, and it's very special to us because we're honoring not just the sacrifices of our forefathers who on July 4th put it on the line but we're honoring the sacrifice and the men and women who are doing it for us every single day, and we bring them in via satellite, they are watching us live, we're actually watching them live. We have uplinks around the world, we have an opportunity to talk to them, perform for them and it just brings a special moment into the stadium.

GLENN: It is the most spine-tingling American thing I have ever seen or been a part of. It is absolutely amazing and so proud to be a part of it again, Brad. And again the Miley Cyrus tickets for the Stadium of Fire, this is July 4th, Provo, Utah. They go on sale this Friday. They will be sold out quickly.

STU: Tomorrow we find out -- obviously just a prank. It's April Fool's. Why is Miley Cyrus going to appear somewhere with you? That's crazy.

GLENN: Glenn Beck, Miley Cyrus and the Blue Man Group. Come on.

STU: You hosted this last year. It was a huge event. I've never seen you come back from something that impressed.

GLENN: I've never been that impressed. I've never, ever been that impressed. And it is -- it sits right in the canyon. It sits right by the mountains and so you're in this bowl, you know, where they play football and you're in the stadium and the mountains are all around you and then the fireworks kick off at the end after this amazing concert. Last year it was Brooks and Dunn. Then the fireworks kick off and I'm telling you, I mean, you can ask Adam. Because he was standing backstage with me. We actually had to stand underneath the rigging of the stage because the stuff was coming down on top of us. It's -- the fireworks are so close and so amazing and they go on -- they did, I think it was -- I don't want to quote the number. I think it was like 10 minutes, maybe 13 minutes and I said, this is amazing. And he said, yeah, but now they really kick in. I said, what? He said, yeah, this is the first half of the fireworks. The second half Disney paid for. And he said, so now the Disney part kicks in. And it was -- I mean, it was nonstop. It was incredible.

STU: You are the guy, you used to go -- you go to all the big cities' fireworks and everything else. And New York, I remember you --

GLENN: Never seen anything like this.

STU: That's amazing.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."
