News. Pop Culture. Politics. Weird stories. EVERYTHING that happened during the last week. Comedian Ben Gleib catches you up on it all, while making fun of basically everything. Some people tell him this podcast is the way they prefer to get the news. He thinks these people are geniuses. Sometimes he's joined by celebrity guests like comedians, actors, politicians, Four-Star Generals, and his parents. But mostly he talks to himself. If you've been in a coma for the last 7 days, this podcast should not be high on your list of things to tackle.

These episodes are keeping me entertained during this pandemic. Keep it up Ben.
Future Daily Show Host!!!
The only funny show left in politics in the Trump era. Can’t wait to see Ben Gleib host The Daily Show one day!!!!
Doesn’t support his friends or stand up for women. Thinks sexist jokes are okay for men to make in the workplace.
On top of it all he’s not funny in the least bit. My kids started to watch idiot test and I had to make them change it. His voice is grating on the ears and his “one-liners” are moronic.
