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 298, Jack and Miles are joined by Stuff You Should Know co-host and The End Of The World host Josh Clark to discuss Twitter trends including Will Smith as the Genie, the Carlton dance coming from Bruce Springsteen,  Paul Ryan's final speech, James Harden, some more absurd Rudy Giuliani comments about Trump's Russia connections, Trumps disdain for Christmas, Tucker Carlson losing sponsors, Steph Curry's response to his moon landing comments, and more!
