Other topics Season 1 addressed included "War," "Guns," "The Stock Market," "Climate Change," "The Media" and "Racism." The "War" episode also addressed veterans affairs, an issue with which Stewart has been involved outside of his television shows.

Stewart advocated for a bill providing medical funds for 9/11 first responders, which passed in 2019. This year, Stewart spoke out on behalf of the PACT Act.

The Problem marked Stewart's return to hosting a TV series after retiring from The Daily Show in 2015. Stewart directed two movies, Rosewater and Irresistible in between.
