Today, Glen & Brian jump right into it and talk about Glen's recent divorce and other catastrophic changes in his life (4:00), writing songs about these difficult moments in life (11:30), and how hope makes its way into his music (25:00). Plus, Glen takes a look at his career and how he's now in the business of reaching less people more deeply (35:00). Also, Brian talks about a letter he sent to Glen when he was having complicated feelings about his success (45:00) and asks Glen about the advice he would give his talented daughter about entering the music business (56:00). Glen ends the show by playing an incredible rendition of a song off the new album, "Criminal Career."
