Episode #54: Johnny Reilly

Johnny Reilly took me deep into his experience growing up as an abused kid in a working poor family.  Filled with rage, he was prone to violence as a mode of survival. Despite making waves in the UK dance battle scene, he eventually found alcohol and crack as a means to cope with what life had given him.  Having traveled a difficult road, along which he sharpened his survival skills, had 16 children, and blossomed artistically, Johnny has found peace.  His greatest triumph is that he still has love to give, and does so as he shares his experience with the world around him.
