About The John Riley Project

A Podcast Exploring Big Ideas

John Riley interviews politicians, community leaders, athletes, coaches, authors and influencers covering a wide range of topics including free market economics, entrepreneurism, politics, leadership, current events, sports and self-improvement.


Your life belongs to you.  What greater wealth is there than to own your life and spend it on growing?  We discuss decisions you make to live a flourishing life.


In order to live a life of self ownership, we need the liberty to make choices that are in our own rational self interest.  We explore political topics and current events through the lens of liberty.

Pursuit of Happiness

Are you doing what you love?  Are you living your life according to your own values?  We discuss topics and interview guests about giving their life meaning and joy.
