Episode 57 "Part 2: Money Greed and God with Jay Richards"
Economics as a discipline suffers from “physics envy” when it tries and fails to build mathematical models of the economy and society. Instead, it should be studying human behavior and focus on the intersection of health, morality, philosophy, wealth creation and how to bring people out of poverty, Jay Richards says on The Bill Walton Show.
Episode 57 "Part 1: Money Greed and God with Jay Richards"
We know from history and evidence all around us, which economic system works, and which one makes people the happiest. It’s the economic system of free enterprise. But is it the most moral? Bill Walton explores the question with Jay Richards, author of the newly reissued book “Money, Greed and God.”
Episode 55 "Chen Guangcheng and Reggie Littlejohn on Human Rights in China, with Huchen Zhang"

Episode 21 "What Acting Teaches You about You with Leigh Wilson Smiley"
It was the 21st episode of The Bill Walton Show, but there were a lot of firsts. For the first time, we warmed up for a show. It was not the cacophony of listening to an orchestra prepare to perform, although the difference between the sounds made during the warmup and the actual performance were almost as dramatic. Instead, there was deep breathing, sighs big enough to be felt in every bone in the body, and burbling. Yes, burbling.
