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.
