How It All Started


The Bill Walton Show is a forum for in-depth and thought-provoking conversations with leaders, thinkers, artists, entrepreneurs and activists. Smart, original and interesting people. All lovers of freedom and the American idea.


We talk about pretty much everything: money, culture, politics, national security, history … whatever is important and interesting. We dig into about what’s behind the curtain, explore “complicated” things and how they matter to our day-to-day lives.


Life’s best insights can come from in-depth honest conversations with smart and interesting people sharing fresh perspectives, enlightening facts and compelling personal stories.


The perspective I bring is many years of experience as an CEO, investor and entrepreneur where I have been involved with starting, leading and financing established businesses, start-ups, arts, film, music, education and theater organizations and policy and political action groups.

With a career in the arena working to build and bring things about, I have a strong bias towards solutions that will work for people in the real world.

The show aims to sync in real time with what people are feeling, thinking, experiencing and questioning.


Unfortunately right now most of us don’t feel things are going that well and are in fact, feeling pretty lousy about it.


But there are also plenty of reasons for hope.


We know what works, what’s moral, and what makes people happy: the principles of limited government, faith, free enterprise, freedom of speech, opportunity, human agency, robust civil society, the rule of law and simple bourgeois virtues that have proved themselves over the centuries.

And we have leaders emerging who understand this.


Moreover, there are many ways to thrive in our personal sphere, even during a time of lousy public leadership. Going forward we’ll be producing more episodes about human agency, entrepreneurship, financial independence, sports and the arts.


“You can learn more from in-depth conversations with knowledgeable experts and people-in-the-arena, than from hours spent with a book.”


What’s true. What works. What’s right. What’s next.
