With Glenn on vacation for the holidays, we're counting down the top Glenn moments of 2013. What were this year's highlights? Stay tuned to the Glenn Beck Newsletter to find out!
2013's most fascinating conversations
In his quest to focus on what unites us instead of what divides us, Glenn has shared the stage with some pretty remarkable and insightful individuals this year. From the future of libertarianism to the art of being unmistakable, the truth about David and Goliath to the singularity, no topic was off limits as Glenn sought to find common ground and learn from some of this nation's most fascinating thinkers. Check out some of our favorite moments below:
In November, illusionist, author, and actor Penn Jillette joined Glenn to discuss how new technology has allowed people to explore and create outside of the established system. Check out highlights from the interview HERE. Earlier this year, Glenn sat down with Penn, who is an atheist, and Rabbi Daniel Lapin to debate morality, faith, and religion. Watch the conversation unfold HERE.
Glenn has been long been a fan of Judge Andrew Napolitano, and he joined Glenn in September to talk about the future of the libertarian movement in the United States. Small government, personal responsibility, and individual liberty is not partisan – it's principle. WATCH
Glenn and author Srinivas Rao probably would never have crossed paths had it not been for his book, The Art of Being Unmistakable. In fact, it's probably safe to say they would not run in the same circles. But that is not a barrier to sharing and promoting similar ideals. In October, Srinivas sat down with Glenn to discuss why living an unmistakable life is as much about making things different as it is making things better. See highlights of the interview HERE.
Best selling author Malcolm Gladwell joined Glenn in November to discuss the importance of out-of-the-box thinking and "the art of taking down giants". Malcolm surprised Glenn with his insightful interpretation of the story of David and Goliath. Watch their conversation HERE. Plus, Malcolm shares the one question he would ask God HERE.
BONUS from 2012: Glenn sat down with well-known futurist Ray Kurzweil for a wide-ranging interview. WATCH

Will 2014 be the year America says enough is enough?
TheBlaze's national security editor Buck Sexton opened Monday's Glenn Beck Program with a simple question: Will 2014 be the year America says enough is enough?

With the midterm elections just around the corner, will Americans finally be ready say enough is enough? WATCH
