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.

Great show, but it troubles me to see how misinformed almost everyone is about the use of masks... with the exception of custom-fitted respirators, masks are wholly and completely ineffective at stopping covid! They may even make people more susceptible to it because their use tends to increase the number of times people touch their faces while using them. Why do so few people know this?!? It is even printed very clearly, in bold print, on the boxes they come in!

i'm new, and I like the commentary for the actual news but the fricken intro. is killing me. Not digging the whole wasted mentality (whether you actually are or not). Personal take you don't have to agree with me, just finding the intros annoying and drawn out. at least give me a time log when the actual news segments pf the podcasts start.
