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 651, Jack and Miles are joined by comedian and Flagrant Ones co-host Carl Tart to discuss how we still have a lot of work to do for the Black Lives Matter movement, an economic catastrophe, QAnon becoming more mainstream, the new Dave Chappelle special, the film 365 DNI, and more!
