  1. Hey there everyone. This was a wild one to work on. there's so much more i want to tell about the global economy and the realities of international business. Lots more to come.
    It's rare that a sponsor specifically wants to be a part of a deep dive video like this. so I'm grateful for Fully. Also super grateful for all of you who come to these videos with a desire to LEARN. this is heavy stuff. Not always easy to understand. But you are here, watching a 19 minute video on YouTube. It's super awesome that you care about this. Thanks for being here.

  2. Dude u are truly awesome storyteller! I watch u maybe a week back and now ur all I watch man. U have a GOD talent. Please kids spreading ur educational side of things.

  3. It is so heartbreaking and horrible that companies are able to work in this way without any consequences. Charles Taylor should not be the only man getting prosecuted for human rights violations for this atrocity.

  4. Dude, ngl you’re videos are cool and the editing style makes it interesting but holy shit are they saturated with sponsorships and products placements. This really takes a toll at your credibility. Out of 19 minutes, only 14 include relevant content.

  5. I can understand not wanting to say his name, but you gotta call him out by name. "This guy" isn't very journalistic.

  6. Hey Johnny, someone is writing a biography on me and you have a video about Halliburton making 36 billion dollars off of the war in Iraq. We want to reference your journalism in the book. Can you send me the link to your video that discusses this?

  7. Johnny that boat where u said was clearly chinese was in korean. Ive seen u mess that up a couple times in ur videos. I love what u do and im also in northern va. Just wanted to lyk
