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.

Happy Birthday Gray!

I’ve only been listening for a few months and the Venn diagram of my interested and key aspects of my life. I’m a Virgo Hoya who loves to improv freestyle. Oh and as a black male millennial raised in the south I love how this show gives me a glimpse into other areas of the country during the 2000!

Zeitgang for life

Been a listener since 2018. Jack and Miles are the perfect balance. The show is funny, real, informative, and interesting. A great source of news, politics and pop culture because the hosts and guests are experts in the topics. News can be very depressing but there’s just something about the way the TDZ delivers it that makes it a lot more comforting.
