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 581, Miles and special guest host Jamie Loftus are joined by the Scam Goddess Laci Mosley to discuss the South Carolina primaries, the end of Pete and Amy's campaigns, Mike Bloomberg's apology for his past behavior, how Bloomberg dealt with past emergencies, the passing of James Lipton, Chili's 45th birthday, the truth behind the Corona beer slander, the end of Judge Judy, and more!
