Here’s one we’ve been looking forward to since Chris Doyle let it out that he was working on an interview with Stew Johnson for the Palaver Podcast. Today is the day that the interview dropped where it turned into over 2 hours of amazing stories and conversations covering Stew’s history in the industry and his film work, along with a lot of other things he gets into like making the “Real BMX” videos happen for the X Games. Stew isn’t a guy who likes to get in front of the camera much, but he did a great job with this. Hit play and take it all in!
“For this interview, I sit down with legendary BMX video maker, Stew Johnson. Stew is responsible for some to the most influential BMX videos of all time and has a career that has spanned nearly 25 years. On a personal level, Stew’s videos had a direct impact on my riding, the way I dressed, and the music that I listened to. I think the same could be said by countless riders from my generation. Stew still continues to push BMX in a positive direction through video; he produces X Games “Real BMX” on ESPN; a show that highlights street riders and filmers and shows what goes into filming a street video part. Watch/listen and find out more!” – Chris Doyle
