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.

In episode 306, Jack and Miles are joined by comedian and writer Carmen Angelica to discuss Woodstock 2019, Paul Manafort and the Trump Administration's collusion with Russia, the stuff discussed in Trump's press conference this week, Angela Davis losing a civil rights award for boycotting Israel, the current surplus of cheese in the United States, a nudest restaurant closing down in France, and more!
