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.

Period.

Love y’all

Found this podcast because Laci Mosley aka SCAM GODDESS was a guest host but now I’m addicted. One of the only ways I can bear to consume news.

F... Bomb

9 F... bombs in the first 30 seconds of the podcast. If that is humor, guess I don’t get it. Might be some sort of Guinness world record for F... bombs to introduce a podcast though. I imagine they could do better with a little practice. Best of luck to y’all. I’m probably going to miss all of your future episodes. But would love to hear if you raise the F... bomb record.
