Area 45 is a Hoover Institution podcast devoted to the Trump administration and the policy avenues available to America’s forty-fifth president. It is hosted by Hoover fellow, Bill Whalen.

Just as area 45 is a medical term for a frontal portion of the human brain, we intend to take a cerebral approach to governing in this toxic political climate. There will be no rancor, no partisanship, but instead Hoover fellows’ keen insights on such thorny matters as taxation and economic growth, health care reform, national security, government entitlements, and improving schools.

Podcasts will be released weekly, with topics and fellows changing from broadcast to broadcast.

For the thoughtful

Chew on interviews more substantial than merely entertaining.

Another Excellent Hoover Inst. Podcast

I always looked forward to Bill Whalen’s insightful political analysis every Monday night on the John Batchelor Show. So, I was thrilled when I found out about Area 45 - and, needless to say, I have not been disappointed. Mr. Whalen is as terrific an interviewer as he is an analyst, and his choice of guests and topics are brilliant.

Substantive, not sensational

Whalen interviews guests really well and gets into the meat of whatever issue in a fun manner that does not ignore gravity of the issue.
