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 250, Jack and Miles are joined by comedian and Reality Bytes co-host Sofiya Alexandra to discuss Hurricane Michael, Melania Trump's comments on the #metoo movement, Trump's mis-leading op-ed on Medicare-For-All, the right fearing for their lives cause of liberals, Trump's behavior leading to the more corrupt behavior across the world, why stocks are dropping, scientists studying the flipping bottle trick, and more!
