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 will 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.... Show More

In episode 254, Jack and Miles are joined by comedian Nick Vatterott to discuss Google trends with Amy Winehouse, Tara Reid, Lady Gaga's fiancé Christian Carino, and Nathan Fillion, a culture wars report, Tucker Carlson crying, the right believing in black magic, the push for a civil war, the NYPD covering for Proud Boys, Lindsay Graham's racist jokes, and more!
