The Daily Zeitgeist

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 381, Jack and Miles are joined by comedian Kim Behpoornia to discuss Avengers: Endgame and the Marvel's love of China, Lindsay Graham's shameless when it comes to the impeaching Republicans, Beto's climate change plan, Moby rubbing his dick on Trump, how long to wait to spoil a show or movie, Game of Thrones, and more!
