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 706, Jack and guest host Scam Goddess Laci Mosley are joined by comedian Blair Socci to discuss the VMAs, Trump praising supporters amid deadly clashes with anti-racism protestors, a video game making BLM protestors the villain, the passings of Chadwick Boseman and John Thompson, the power of crowds, and more!
