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 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 575, Jack and special guest host Jamie Loftus are joined by Get Rich Nicks and Deckheads podcast co-host Nick Turner to discuss Trump clouding the Russian election meddling discussion, Mike Bloomberg's Instagram meme campaign, how the REAL ID is connected to Trump's border wall, the 2020 White House Correspondents Dinner, a study about dog owners, the coronavirus, and more!
