Having grown up in the movie business, I still find the changes that have occurred since our last theater was sold in 1985 to be of interest. I therefore had to laugh when I found out that movies don’t come to the theaters on reels anymore, but are sent digitally. The job of projectionist, the person who ran the huge projectors in every theater, has disappeared.

PODCAST #1: THE HON. TEVI TROY, PHD

The first guest is Tevi Troy, an Orthodox Jewish influencer, who has been in the political world for the last two decades.

Tevi Troy is the CEO of the American Health Policy Institute and the author of the new book Shall We Wake the President? Two Centuries of Disaster Management from the Oval Office, (Lyons, 2016), as well as the best-selling book, What Jefferson Read, Ike Watched, and Obama Tweeted: 200 Years of Popular Culture in the White House, (Regnery, 2013).

From 2007 to 2009, Dr. Troy was the Deputy Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services – the second in command and chief operating officer of the largest civilian department in the federal government, with a $716 billion annual budget and 67,000 employees. Dr. Troy has led U.S. government delegations around the world, including two health delegations to Israel while serving as Deputy Secretary of HHS.

After receiving his Ph.D. in American Civilization from the University of Texas, Dr. Troy dedicated a dozen years to public service, working at senior levels in the U.S. House of Representatives, the U.S. Senate, executive agencies, and the White House. Before coming to HHS, Dr. Troy served as Deputy Assistant to the President for domestic policy. He also served as the White House Jewish Liaison, acting as President Bush’s main adviser on Jewish issues and the administration’s point person with the Jewish Community. After leaving government service, Dr. Troy became a Senior Fellow at Hudson Institute, where he remains an Adjunct Fellow.

Dr. Troy’s first book, Intellectuals and the American Presidency: Philosophers, Jesters, or Technicians, was a study of the impact intellectuals have had on presidential administrations. He is also the author of over 250 published articles.

Dr. Troy appears frequently on television and radio to discuss health care, presidential history, and other issues, and is a contributing editor at Washingtonian.

When he’s not busy with his day jobs, Dr. Troy and his wife, Kami, are plenty busy at home with four children under the age of 16.
