The Daily Zeitgeist

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 and co-host Miles Gray 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....

In episode 472, Jack and Miles are joined by comedian Closure: The Podcast That Never Ends host Eli Olsberg to discuss the new Apple releases, Elizabeth Warren scaring Wall Street executives, the 2020 election polls, Fox New's trying to figure out if we need another 9/11, John Bolton refusing to leave quietly, Hasbro's Ms. Monopoly, Trump administration going after vaping, the Caroline Calloway essay, KFC's sexy Colonel Sanders, and more!
