Matt Kibbe is joined by Logan Albright, head writer at Free the People and author of Conform or Be Cast Out, to discuss the numerous and varied evils of the nation’s least favorite tradition: Daylight Savings Time. Bad for your health and unjustified by any objective metric, the process of springing forward and falling back also demonstrates man’s hubris in trying to put a whole nation out of sync with the natural rhythms of the Earth and sun. Meanwhile, a new bill being ushered through Congress, The Sunshine Protection Act, would apparently rid us of this blight once and for all, yet, in typical government fashion, might actually make things even worse.
