The Daily Zeitgeist

There’s more news and less comprehension today than any historical period that didn’t involve literal witch trials, and trying to stay on top of it all can feel like playing a game of telephone with 30 people, except everyone’s speaking at the same time and like a third of them are openly racist for some reason. From Cracked co-founder Jack O’Brien, THE DAILY ZEITGEIST is stepping into that fray with some of the funniest and smartest comedic and journalistic minds around. Jack and co-host Miles Gray spend up to an hour every weekday sorting through the events and stories driving the headlines, to help you find the signal in the noise, with a few laughs thrown in for free....

In episode 340, Jack and Miles are joined by comedian Hana Michels to discuss Instagram flexer Lil Tay breaking her silence, CPAC being a conservative open mic, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry choosing to raise their child with fluid approach, the man Trump hired to bid on his portrait, Sean Hannity denying any working relationship with Michael Cohen, Amazon selling many conspiracy theory literature, fake Amazon reviews, fast food being as unhealthy as ever, and more!
