An excerpt from the new edition of my book Blood Gun Money, released today
Ioan!! LOVE your s**t amigo! Saw you on Rogan years ago, then on the compa Shadow's channel a couple yrs back. Hooked!!! You really do bring some intense and increadible content to all of us vanilla USA civilians and, most importantly, you most definitely understand what the hell is REALLY going on in Mexico, a staggeringly beautiful country with a population of 99.99% incredibly warm and wonderful peoplenand culture. As you know, here in the states you can't trust the legacy media or the folks in the casa blanca feeding them the BS "news" to "report" on.
Anyways brother, I and many others like me only have one big problem with you, and its this: You don't write or publish enough stuff for all of us narco-news watchers to read/watch/listen to online dude!! You gotta write more, or record or film more easily accessible, free and addictive content...please Ioan!! On the daily! I can see it now.... "Ioan Grillo's Nacro News Daily" or "Ioan's Daily Drugs Dish" or "Ioan's Dope: Uncut & Frequent" or "Ioan Grillo...On Dope Today". So many choices, eh guey? 😂
All jokes aside dude, we all really enjoy your work and look forward to many more years of it. Just please, in the name of Christ man, be f**king carefull down there!! I sure as hell don't want to ever hear Shadow doing a report on you disappearing, or ending up as some hungry lion's fresh Welsh-grown dinner on a ranch in Michoacan or Tamaulipas somewhere. That would suuuuck. Hell Ioan, I'm not even sure if you are Welsh; hopefully you were born in the north, as I hear lion's especially don't care to dine on the Scots. Or the Irish. I guess we have far too much peat, malt and Haggis in our bloodlines and they can taste it. They do however, allegedly, love the occasional taste of the Wanker's from London (apologies dude if you are orig from London🤣!! Just jokes!). So, with all the constant, crazy and murderous madness taking place south of the border on a daily basis....FFsakes Ioan, be careful and continue to stay safe compa!! And eat more Haggis🥳🥳🥳, as a deterent I mean.
All the best Ioan, with much appreciation, professional admiration and personal gratitude.

If guns were legal in Mexico they wouldn't have a smuggling problem.
It would take care of many problems.
Great book, Ioan. Thank you! It's an excellent resource for me as I race to the finish line of my own book on global displacement and migration and the hardening of borders. I'd love to interview you for my book, if possible. Let me know how to DM you. Best and muchisimas gracias again!
