Description

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.

I'm a doordash driver and I only accept orders over a certain amount, and under a certain mileage. I didn't realize this was an entire movement. I thought it was just, like, an obvious way to operate. After you dash for a few months, you start to get a sense of what is considered "high pay" in your area, and man I've been at this for years. In some cities, dashers won't accept any order under $15. That amount would be nice but seldom occurs in my area (Dayton, Ohio) -- except during the dinner block. Just like anything else, it's all about timing and location. And, you know, not being stupid. Doordash occasionally tries to send me a $3 order and I'm like, GTFOH with that nonsense, joker. That's not even worth putting on pants.
