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 434, Jack and Miles are joined by Lady to Lady podcast co-host Tess Barker to discuss Emmy nominations, Trump doubling down on his racism, Trump's connection to Jeffrey Epstein, what Julian Assange was up to at the Ecuadorian Embassy, Jeremy Renner dropping some Jeep ads, Bastille Day going hard, shows we thought we made up as kids, and more!
