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.

In episode 433, Jack and Miles are joined by comedian Matt Lieb to discuss the Chambong, Fox & Friends laughing at Trump's racists tweets, the Trump administration defending Trump's racism, Russian intel planting the Seth Rich conspiracy theory, Scarlett Johansson addressing the backlash against her, the backlash from a black woman playing 007, and more!
