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.

Mr.ÅB ,

Best daily

Funny and informative, a daily must listen. Always great guests. Keeps this geriatric millenial up to date w the trends. And lots of heart. Don’t know how they do it everyday, but don’t stop. I ❤️ you guys. Start listening!!!

I really love this show

The chemistry of the hosts extends to their daily third guest. I have often found myself following more and more of their guests and their podcasts thanks to this show.

Serious and funny, pop culture and political are all well balanced here. I’m 40, but my 16 year old son sometimes hears snippets of this show when I drive him to school, and he really likes it as much as I do.

Love you guys!

Long Time Listener, First Time Reviewer

This was one of the first podcasts I discovered when I started listening to podcasts. Miles and Jack are hilarious and so smart on a myriad of topics. I feel so informed after listening to their daily shows. And their guests are top tier for a second-rate podcast.
