Matters of Policy & Politics is a Hoover Institution podcast devoted to matters of governance and balance of power at home and abroad. It is hosted by Hoover fellow Bill Whalen.
As the successor to Hoover’s Area 45 podcast, which focused on Trump-era issues and controversies, Matters of Policy & Politics will examine the direction of federal, state, and local leadership and elections, with an occasional examination of national security and geopolitical concerns, all featuring insightful analysis provided by Hoover Institution scholars and guests.
Podcasts will be released weekly, with engaging topics and fellows.

1 episode review
While I expected a US policy based podcast from the Hoover Institution to have a US bias, the host loses credibility when he phrases US intervention into North Korea as offering "sunshine and goodness".
Otherwise the North Korea episode was informative with the length allowing for an in depth discussion.
