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 442, Jack and Miles are joined by comedian Ellory Smith to discuss how to get your settlement money from Equifax, the dropping of the Epstein files, Ilhan Omar's biggest competitor (not really), an update on the Cuba sonic attacks, how food delivery companies screw over their workers, a Woodstock 50 update, and more!
