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 400, Jack and Miles are joined by comedian and activist Derrick Lemos to discuss the Sonic the Hedgehog film being pushed back, the new Between Two Ferns film, more on Tony Robbins shady behavior, Trump and his team coming for Nancy Pelosi, William Barr investigating the investigators, what the dudes having been enjoying, the new National Enquirer museum, and more!
