Recording in the Earth Touch studio, Jason chats with wildlife filmmaker Ben Hewett. Find out what it's like making films about wild animals, how Ben navigates the line between accuracy and entertainment, and why you should never (ever!) take a selfie with a grizzly bear. To see Ben's work, look up showtimes for "Crazy Monster Frogs" and "Great White Code Red", which air on the Smithsonian Channel in the US.
