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 527, Jack and special guest host Caitlin Durante are joined by comedian Tamer Kattan to discuss the weekend box office, what impeachment polls mean, some Democratic candidates no one had heard of dropping out of the 2020 race, Jared Kushner taking over the border wall project, who will take over when Queen Elizabeth retires or passes on, more shady behavior from NBC after firing Gabrielle Union, inappropriate Christmas tree ornaments on Amazon, and more!
