Amazing interview. Allowing Johnny to express himself at his own pace made it engaging and his story is sad yet uplifting and inspiring at the same time. I didn’t know who he was until now. I didn’t know what to expect, but was compelled to write a review of how touching the story about his survival is and how great this interview was. I’m now researching more of his stuff on YouTube. A+++

Wow! A serious conversation. Thank you 🙂


Great soul. Never heard of the man before but his quality shines through all of the pain he suffered from people consumed by ignorance. Can relate to much that was said, very inspiring. Found peace in the dhamma truth and understanding of experience and the self. Much peace, love and happiness.


wow. The final words are in a way “finally profound” .. I learned a great deal tonight.

Very interesting interview…you are really the sum of all your experiences!


“I’ve gotta make it up on the back end.” ~Regarding taking advantage of a better life. Agreed – whew~


I love the line about muggin’ a bumble bee. Now that’s nutrition dedication. Good intel on how he became “stuck” in a good life to survive. I can relate.


I thought this one looked scary [MMA/UFC is a lot for me] but I went for it and pressed play. I identified with the racial concepts as an infant, mother situation, anger & the anger management.

Amazing, I like coming to London Real and getting my expectations shattered, Interviews where I didn’t think I’d get anything are sometimes the most rewarding.

Seems that there are some privacy settings that are not disclosed, nor corrected, maybe not aware of? Would you advise, please, none of your communicated videos are available to be viewed, and show “because of its privacy settings…”
Thanks in advance
