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.

Slanted

Kounalakis glosses over the Socialist dictatorship reality faster than a Democrat on his way to a pot dispensary. What’s blowhard. If all podcasts here at Area 45 are this lame I’m gone.

Keep your finger on the volume

Great show, insightful, well thought.

RECORDED BY AN 8 YEAR OLD WITH ATTENTION DEFICIT DISORDER.

Seriously, is mix placement that difficult? Can Hoover afford a second mic??

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.
