"Yeah. I think we're gonna stayed for a little while. I mean. I would imagine to even just after looking at what's happened this year. The united states probably doesn't look like a desirable destination for from overseas. I would. I would imagine because for us here. Man don't know. I tell you i tell you something. I was having a coffee with the gentleman of color. Danish and We were talking about that and he was saying the same thing what i love about living in europe i love a lot of things in terms of quality life and quality food and quality. I liked it. You don't have to fight so hard for all of that in. Us if you want the best for your family you want good education. You want to live in a nice place you want. You know you know fresh vegetables and and all of this sort of things and good health care and everything absolutely you can get it. But for i'd say the majority of americans you gotta fight for that. You had a fighting your education. You've gotta fighting your job. You gotta fight and work hard. Be the one who who stays late in all of that kind of stuff to provide that for your family and one of the things that i've deftly found that i enjoy is that they don't roll like that here they don't roll like that you know. They don't denmark is a proud welfare state. they call themselves that it blew my mind house like like. That's not you're not insulting yourself like. That's an insult and for them. They are fiercely proud about that. America is a messy country. But we've always been a messy country. What does success look like for you now. And just so you know it's been intermittently dropping out like every three or four minutes so i'm gonna be curious to see how the final product sounds making a lot of notes that i'm glad that you keep talking. 'cause my hope. Is that skype records. That even though i'm not hearing it go back and listen once. We've we've wrapped. And everything's i'll just i'll ask that again. We're kinda right near the end just so you know so with everything that you've accomplished and you know with where you're at in your life right now. What does success look like for you. Success would look like my studio business doing well. I've been blessed to do a lot of incredible work. When i was at sarraf ski and in doing design seed and other things and i would really love to have that sort of success with my my own collections. And with the work that i do for my clients. So that's definitely what success would look like for me to really build a strong studio business and have that a a studio business of someone of color and to share what i've learned and to employ a diverse team that would be amazing especially to employ a diverse team. One question that. I'm asking every guest this year and i ask you this same question is how are you using your skills to help create a more equitable future honestly. I think just try to do what. I'm doing with my studio. There's so many studios. So many creatives out there creative studios out there that i admire but very very very very very very very few from people of color and black people and for i think a lot of different reasons. We often don't get a lot of exposure. We don't get a lot of credit for the work that we've done. I think there's often a lot of cultural bias. That people are not aware of maybe even themselves or they think well. Unless i'm doing tennis shoes or something. Let's say call it. Stereotypical fits within the black or african american culture or something like that then. I don't need that voice. And so i think having a successful studio and using that success to be able to employ a diverse team and having that be successful would definitely build abby at a lot of equality and be a great symbol so to speak of of a more equitable future. Where it's possible to be a designer. I not a black designer but to be a designer and to be valued based off the body of your work and what that brings and your in how you think and i think that that day has not come yet. So where do you see yourself in the next five years hopefully do my studio business and working with coming into work and greeting my team and and everything like that would be fantastic aside from that. I try to make too many plants. Like i said before i try to listen and i try to listen to to our life is taking me and to make the most of the opportunities that i'm given and to and to honor that into to work hard. Yeah so just to kind of wrap things up here. Where can our audience find out more about you and about your work on line. The best place is definitely my website. Www dot studio mark smith all sort of one word no gaps studio mark smith america s t h dot com. I would say that's the best place on linked you can find me there in a few of the platforms like that but definitely say they can come to my website and just contact and send hello or something.

I'm glad that you were able to kinda share your journey from small town in georgia slash alabama to working in europe and really kind of all the steps along the way. I think it's important to show that there is no one set discreet path to success in this industry that you can sort of bounce around and figure things out and kind of come up with your own plan. Which is what you've been able to do and what you're continuing to do through your studio so thank you so much for coming on the show. I appreciate it thank you. Maria said it was really a pleasure.

"Of came out of nowhere. Sounds like honestly it was. I think it's really interesting. I wish it could be one of those sort of stories where i would say you know. It was my big break and i knew it was my big break. I absolutely did not taking the job with sarraf. Ski was that was my big break. It was like was like a rocket ship just from day one it was like just absolutely transformative in the scope of the work. Sean what. I could do learning what i do at never forget. It was literally within the first week on the job. And i'd gone at six in the morning because it was so overwhelming that i thought i just need to kind of like catch up a little bit and as soon as everyone gets into the office like i don't have a chance to breathe. The general manager of the company was there by the coffee machine at six in the morning and he was like mark. Wow so great that you're in early. That's perfect come onto my office. And i was like oh come on like come in at six. I need to come in at five in the morning. Just so that i can get some peace and i go in and and all the heads of the departments are there and he said yeah we were just sitting here thinking that mark should be on this call but you just started so we just didn't think too. We had just hadn't thought to invite you but it's perfect that you're here so we're all here because this is a phone call with china jing and we're discussing designing the largest crystal dragon in the world and you're going to design that so here we go and i was like i'm sitting there like in shock designing the largest crystal dragon in the world for china and it was just. It was like that. I mean just really incredible incredible projects incredible opportunities in incredible growth. Now i know that you know you're not at swarovski anymore. But i'm curious about something particularly. I guess you know as we're hearing this pandemic because so much of consumer spending has changed right now like i don't know if people are really spending money certainly not on travel and entertainment like they used to and i would imagine that probably is the same way for luxury items to how do you see a brand like swarovski. I would even say kind of a brand of what you're doing because you're making custom jewelry. How do you sort of adapt to these times. When there's now probably a new definition around luxury items. I think i. The jury is still a bit out in regards to what's going to happen with the luxury industry as sort of we going forward so when i took the job at serov ski you have to think that i got hired november two thousand ten so it would still very much the recession that time the housing bubble had burst. And and if you had asked me is just sort of a regular person. Would it be the time to sort of build up a department dealing with luxury installations and luxury products. I would have said no. But i would have been wrong. I mean the luxury industry was booming during that period of time. So it's going to be interesting. I don't know. I mean this is a different circumstance. And there's always those who have means and and wanna buy it now with the work that you're doing even the work that you did was rosca you're you know you're designing for an international audience. What are some of the challenges with that. There's a lot of challenges designing for international audience. A lot and i think it took me a long time of development in a long time of training to be able to to design for a truly international audience. And i do say that. In a way where i mean truly international audience. A lot of that has to do. I think the great thing is that. I think once you sort of get to understanding the the difference of the process. It's a lot about understanding what we have in common and we have a lot. It's been said. And i think it always bears repeating. There's only one race in that human race period. You have different body types. Different colors different hair texture different features all of that but at the end of the day there was only one race and that's the human race is dead so designing internationally has something to do with in terms of different body types in different features physical features but i think largely it has to do with thinking more culturally in a more cultural global mindset. So for instance. When i when i draw my inspiration from nature there's not a culture on this planet that does not respond to a beautiful sunset. There's not a cultural. This planet that doesn't stare into a fire and tell stories is not a cultural on this planet. Dad doesn't love kids. Don't want wants to swim in it and play and all of that so i think you know when you think you know sort of pull back you know if we could fly into space pullback and you see this wonderful blue marble that we all share designing internationally is not as problematic as you might think i would say there's more like not over thinking it and yeah i mean they're just really seeing. Everybody is human. I really can't just can't emphasize that enough to seeing everyone. I see it at myself. Every time i traveled to a new place. I you know you go to asia and they love watermelon. And there's no stereotype. There's no stereotype like you know i would is in. Us in the south. You know all black people truth. Is everybody watermelon. Fried chicken fried chicken too and so much of this stuff is contracts. But yeah if you just think about just people who are like you culturally physically then yes than then designing internationally might be challenge so now you're in denmark. You have your family there. Your studio is there in general like what's life like for you there. Do you think there would be something that would prompt you to move back to the states one day. Just curious can hear the honest with you. I really like it wasn't like it wasn't the plan at pride myself in a man of faith and i really tried to more. Listen to what. God is telling me. In where god wants me to go than my own plan. Because i feel like when. I've made plans. That really didn't work out. But i really like living in europe if you talk to me like if you went back fifteen twenty year mark whatever and you. Ask them that he would say. Never two million years. But i love it so and in copenhagen. The people are wonderful. I mean absolutely to some of the swedish people. I've lost my phone on a city bus three times three times. I've lost my sorry once. I lost a twice of loss on a bus once. A loss it on the street i was biking and it just fell out of my pocket and each time someone returned to me. Wow it's a wonderful city and we just bought a house. So i think.

"At auburn and my roommate my former roommate at pratt my i remain He'd been industrial design. Major and i just had such admiration for that work and what the industrial honors did. And so i went to check it out and thank goodness. I met the head of the program and he convinced me to go there. I would say the second best decision one of my second best decision of my life at that time to do that. The first number one best decision of my life at that time was to go back home because it was really what i needed an grounded me and it put me in the right frame of mind to turn around yeah. There's something that that you touched on here. That i want to kind of draw out a little bit because i feel i personally relate to it which is being from the south from a small town particularly in alabama going off elsewhere to a bigger city to try to make a name for yourself and then this sort of silence. I guess. Fear that motivates you to do well so you don't have to go back like the way you said that you sort of characterized going back home or you saw it. I guess as a failure but it ended up being this reset. And i mean i'm thinking to myself i guessing it's probably this for other people that are from like small towns. You wanna try to grow out of your situation and sometimes going back to that can feel like you're sort of like regressing or. You're like taking a step back absolutely. I mean i know people who are still in new york. And i think new york city i think most big cities are full of people who you know the quality of their life the quality of their careers the quality of of what they achieve is not really greater. Because they're in that city is city just becomes a great place to hide. It's like yeah you know someone. So yeah there's in new york. I don't know they're doing something. And you and. I knew people like that. Who were just there. Yeah you know. Like i said i i. I think i'm very thankful to my family. They really framed it like we need to hear we want you here and we think it's also good for you to it. Takes courage to leave. And for sure it takes equal to greater courage to come back especially when you haven't achieved what you thought you want achieve. Yeah yeah the only thing i had when i got back was my that piece of paper from pratt which not to diminish it not to say that that was a small thing but the best thing that that paper did was get me into the industrial design program at auburn. Yeah and so. You're back home here at auburn. You founded something at auburn. Call design seed. I believe yes. Yes yes what was designed seed so the concept of design seed is that you have this huge like band that goes through the center of the state of alabama through selma selma's at the heart of it called the black belt and the black belt is basically where all the sort of rich black soil geologically swept down from the mississippi river through the center. This big band through the center of the state and because of the rich black soil there. It was the the most intense center off. Agribusiness slavery plantation in alabama arguably in the entire south. So you had just this concentrated concentrated amount of slaves in this region called the black belt and when slavery ended the blacks of that region were just left to poverty and it hasn't changed at all and so the idea of design seed. Was that the problem with the regions that you really can't make money with right with farming. You can't make enough money to live and the real money is in manufacturing and industrialized employment and an industrialized products. And so the idea was to design products that could be manufactured. Profitably in this region and to cede that region or these micro manufacturing businesses back could start and create jobs and then the idea is that designed seed would use all of the leverage all of the intellectual leverage of auburn university university of alabama funding from both state and federal levels. And all of the sort of concerted effort to create these micro manufacturing businesses. That would then grow up in that area and employ more people employ more people employ more people so that was the concept of design seat. I proposed it. I think literally within the first month of my graduate school and within the first month it got funded from the college of architecture by the end of that semester was funded by the university. And by the time i graduated like a lightning rod for all sorts of federal funding for the university so i actually graduated got a job designing barbecue grills and turkey fryers in columbus georgia at a place called masterbuilt manufacturing so I had gotten that job. I was doing that work. And then i got a call back from my old thesis adviser and who is also my partner to sign do and taiwanese guy. He's now the head of design at north carolina state university and side was like. Hey can you come back. And i was like. What do you mean to visit. He was like no. We need you to come back because we got all this funding after you left and we need you to come back to to run this and so i did. That and everything was going phenomenal. Incredible in two thousand and ten we won we like the longest project to win the southern growth policies innovation award out of kentucky and everything was going great and then the financial crisis hit their two thousand nine. Two thousand ten are all the funding just dried up. We never got a chance to launch even a single business what ended up prompting the move to europe. So i'm imagine that i'm fighting the good fight. I'm driving up to washington. Dc in presenting to congressman and of this sort of stuff to keep my project alive. And i get a phone call from a recruiter from a design that i had done that they saw and they wanted me to interview for serov ski and the krystal company and the first time i said no actually and i told him all the reasons why i didn't wanna do it and i said yeah you know the money's not enough and you're not thinking about it correctly like this. This was a really interesting thing because is never happened to me before since i said all the reasons why they were thinking about the job incorrectly. I did all the things you really not supposed to do. Would you interested in job. Because i wasn't interested in the job and they call me two months later and say we fixed everything which is still be willing to interview for the job. And so i did and i got the job. And that's how it began with ski. Which is headquartered in austria and switzerland. There's two headquarters. One involves austrian. The other ones men endorse switzerland. And i started in their us office in upstate. New york in a small town called plattsburgh our south of montreal. I was there for three and a half years and then.

"January nineteen ninety three with only enough money to be there for one semester. Wow so you really like took a leap of faith. Absolutely just pure like i just felt i mean it was just i made. I made this sort of tears in my eye. Impassioned plea to my parents and i just felt like if i didn't do that i would just regret it for the rest of my life now. I imagine it had to be a pretty big shift going from auburn alabama to new york city in the winter in ninety three. Like what are you remember about that. First year i remember being utterly unprepared in every sense of the word at never been far from home ever in my life from my were. My parents live to auburn. Had only like a forty five minute car drive. And i never forget my first night there. I realized that i didn't pack sheets. Ono thanks sheets for the bed. So i was on this bear mattress in the dormitory curled up in this winter coat. You know it was. All i had to keep with it and i didn't even know where to buy sheets. I was just completely terrified of everything. I remember putting some backup money in my deodorant can is like the add in all this crazy stuff. I got lost. I mean every like country. Hick boy goes to new york city story. You can imagine happen to me. Wow i realized that while i had the skill for drawing that art is this really complex mental ex. I mean you. You have to be extremely smart. And it's just like an engineering or any of science. The visuals science form science. All sorts of things designed is in practice like one of the top schools in the world for that. So i was completely i was in the bottom of my classes just like in business school but now i cared you now. I was like be the case. What is happening. How is it that. I'm failing this class. And i'm giving my everything to it but sort of took about a year but went from the bottom to top. I was was in the top of my classes. Nice and i really thought that i was in the right place so once you you graduated from pratt and we've actually had a few pratt. Alums here on the show once you graduated from there. Were some of those kind of first design gigs. I'm assuming you probably stuck around in new york for a while once you got the hang of it right. If i had a lot of different gigs. I worked at leather new leather jackets. I remember seeing that in like vibe magazine. Those brands yeah exactly exactly so. I was designed junior designers system. Eva rex i were just doing textile design looking back on it. I did a lot of work within the sort of fashion sector their new york round forty seventh street. But yeah and then i started being a teaching artist which is basically partnering with these sort of foundations. Where they the idea is that you have creative problem solving in creative process. And so you. They would partner a creative with the traditional teacher in underprivileged classrooms in schools like south. Bronx and i was working in East harlem and that and they were party with the teacher who might teach math or science. And you guys would get together and come up with basically more creative way to teach math or more creative way to teach science or history or whatever whatever the the subject was okay. Yeah well that is. That's so working those gigs being a teacher and everything. What changed because of from what i can tell from doing my research. Eventually you did end up going back to auburn. But then what sort of prompted that. Move to go back where you're trying to prove something to yourself. I was just lost. Like i was just lost. You know i went pratt. Mike i said on a wing and a prayer. I guess i thought that doing something like sort of climbing that mountain that on the other side it was like you know the land of milk and honey and i was lost. I mean i didn't really know what i was supposed to do. I was working going from sort of hand to mouth in regards to working in jobs in life. And i thought i was going to be. This fine artists in part of my apartment was like a studio but at a certain point i wasn't even painting or and i didn't like what i was painting and and my parents have to say the most incredible parents you know my dad came up and he had stay with me for a little while and he was just like you know. Come on. what are you doing you just. You're spinning your wheels. And just hoping that one day something's going to be different or you know some break or something or whatever and come home. And i was like what would i do. He's like i don't know teach or whatever but it's better than what you're doing so that's what i did felt i gotta say it mean it was probably the lowest point in my life like i felt like i had done the impossible which was sort of breaking the gravity of the south and going to the big city and going to win best art schools in the world and graduating in doing well and but returned to the south was like really as sort of a failure and With no plan no had all of these skills. I love comic books and i. I used to tell my my parents. My brother like when i was there at pratt. Like i'm getting all these superpowers like. I can do this now at never could have done that before it. Now i can do this. And now i felt like you know like all these superpowers. And it's like what do you remember that you see captain. America did so all he wanted to do was fighting the war right then he gets the syrup and he's like massive guy right superpowers and he's like dancing on a stage like not doing the very thing that he went through all of that to do. That's exactly where i was. So i went back and a friend of my parents had said. Yeah he should go over there and look at the industrial design program.

"Than i initially thought it was going be now one of course go more into your design career like i mentioned. I wanna talk about us. But i i wanna go back to the very beginning. You know you. And i have spoken about where you grew up. Let's let's talk about it You're from here in the states from the country absolutely as we were talking before from the country to copenhagen. But i was telling you that. I think that's a perfect title for a book or something. So where did you grow up. So i was born in columbus georgia which is right next to the chattahoochee river and part of my childhood was there in atlanta and the rest was there in alabama. We moved back to alabama. And i was living in alabama when i graduated. I have two degrees from auburn university. One bachelor environmental design and masters of industrial design from their college of architecture programs and yeah just a ghetto. Southern boy were you exposed to like designed art like this early on like do you remember that. Not per se now per se. My mom i mean both my parents were really fantastic. But my mom. She saw that. I was always into drawing and so they were always buying like the. You know those like how to draw books. I don't know if people do that. You know but it's like how to draw cartoons so how to draw horses or how to draw face and she would give me those books and i was just. I was always drawing. I was the one that the teacher in class asked to help with the posters and decorate the bulletin board. And all that kind of stuff but aside from that. I didn't have any sort of remotely formal exposure to it until i would say i think it was like my junior year in high school and then eventually from there. You ended up going i to to auburn university. Is that right like you said yes so. I went to auburn university. When i went to auburn i was a business. Major okay. yeah. It was a business major majoring in marketing and back. Then you know because they didn't of start any sort of formal work in art into my junior in high school. It was always just sort of a side thing and my parents were like. Yeah you know. That's a nice thing. And maybe you can paint on the weekends but you gotta go to school and do a real career and a real job and so back then. I thought it was going to be corporate attorney a whole plan. I was gonna major in business and minor. In pre law. And then go to law school at emory university. Because my mom she her masters at emory In atlanta in nursing. That was the master plan. And then i know it was sort of funny but Kind of the genie in the bottle is like an open. I took a class my junior year through myself into it. Our winning all this sort of art competitions and and everything and and so for my last two years of high school and i was miserable. I mean i was miserable. I tried so hard to just like buckle down and focus and and everything but before you know what i got a part time job designing t shirts at a little t shirt company called massa graphics and i started doing all sorts of artwork like getting paid for it all over campus. It was a pivotal moment. I was painting a wall. Mural restaurant in that was twenty one years old. So i should have been graduating that year. I know it was going should have been my senior year. And i basically dropped out and i got offered a job with blue cross. Blue shield in birmingham alabama to work in our communications department. At all i needed to do was to finish my year. They didn't care what my grades were. They just love the they were having lunch in the restaurant where i was doing the wall mural and they were just like just finish and calm. I realized i don't want that i just. I should've been a static. Horrible business major by gpa. Was not was was was in the toilet. I could graduate. But just you know. And so to get an offer from bluecross blueshield in birmingham and had vessel guaranteed job. And they want me to intern. That summer should have been like. Just you know a gift from god. And and in that moment and i told the recruiter the director of human resources. I said i would love to take the job. But i'm going to be going to new york at that time idea if i could actually go to new york to art school but in that moment it just. It was clear that i had to leave. And that's what i did. I went to pratt institute. winter.

"Their goals and what inspires them as creative individuals. Here's your host maurice cherry. Hello everybody welcome to revision path. Thank you so much for tuning in. I'm your host mariz cherry and this week. I'm talking with mark smith and industrial designer and copenhagen denmark and the head of design studio mark smith. Let's start the show all right so tell us who you are and what you do. My name is mark. Smith and i am an industrial designer based in copenhagen denmark with studio business call studio mark. Smith here in copenhagen denmark. Nice now i've been asking everyone on the show you know because of this pandemic how they're holding up how are you doing. How is sort of the corona virus and everything being handled in denmark. Right now. it's pretty good. It's pretty good. I think except for public transportation or like maybe going into a restaurant or something like that. You really wouldn't even see people with masks. Yeah i mean. We had the same tough time. I think the world had you know especially in the spring early summer with confinement but now things are are pretty. Good okay yeah over here. It's it's the ghetto man died. It is not great. I mean i don't know how much worse it's going to devolve by the time. This interview comes out but as of this interview. There's you know over two hundred thousand americans dead. No sign of stimulus in the future. And it's still so dicey and tricky from even from city to city let alone from state to state. Just how masks and everything or being enforced so it's wild and of course the economy is just like we gotta keep going so people are out and about like it's no big deal. It's a really tricky tom over here. We feel it a bit less here in copenhagen. I mean it's a much smaller country. I think it's five point. Eight million in the entire country of denmark. But yeah i talked to my friends in states new york atlanta where you are throughout the south end. It's a horrible horrible time. In twenty twenty is definitely been the worst year of my career. So you know so. It's tough. we'll speak enough career. Let's talk about some highlights. At least then. Let's talk about studio mark smith. When did you decide to strike out on your own. I decided it was sort of the last days when i was at Roszke for eight years and we knew my wife and i we knew we wanted to sort of make a move and it had always been in the back of my mind to sort of test. My theories do some work create some products some experiences and yeah. I think it was back in two thousand nineteen. I made the decision to do it. It's been really an exciting journey. That's really fantastic. And i have a whole bunch of collections that keep getting postponed. Because of corona too in terms of launch. There was supposed to launch a twenty twenty but it looks like we. We launched them in the spring of twenty twenty one for sure. Well i want to dive more into your time at swarovski later. But let's kind of a regular day like for you now then the trial on your own a regular day for me is i would say mainly working on my collection stuff. My collection work right now. I'm doing a collection of jewelry. So i have a collection call hidden and hidden began as a collection for lighting and home products. Like a a planter would have around the home home decor type of products. And i was asked if i could bring that in. Translate that story into jewelry. And so i've done that and now we will be launching that in dubai in twenty twenty one exciting. I mean aside from kind of exhibition part. Are there any parts of your work. Third different now. Because of the pandemic different i would say it's funny because the hidden story. The story of hidden is basically beauty in a broken moment. So all of the pieces are like breaking open. An inside there is sort of in for the lighting and for the home decor products. The sort of sort geodesy of crystal and for the jewelry. It's a fine jewelry collection. So it's breaking open and you're seeing some diamonds or you're seeing gold or saying white gold in. It's this idea that when things break inside that there's treasure. If you have the is to see it and i had four wild than really i love the look of like cliffs of dover in england or the grand canyon just that ruggedness in that sort of broken edge for longtime. I've loved that. I see it as something that is beautiful because it's imperfect and i would say that working on my collection during the this pandemic has actually made it clear to me. How important story is in and how important it is to sort of see that silver lining. Yeah i would definitely say the pandemic and everything sort of slowing down has helped me really center and and that has added to the. I think the quality of the collection. How do you approach a new project. Where does the idea. I guess i come into play and how you put that into action. I would say my ideas often are combination. My inspirations always coming from nature and nature is a few see some of my work. It's i have a lot of work that's relates to water a lot of installations architectural installations that relate to water. I think that was a lot of what. I how i worked when i work with iraqi was like doing a lot of water. Things in using the crystal to reflect refracted reflect light. It's coming from nature within on the other side. There's always looking for a job to be done. You know what is something that people need that the it's not being addressed so with these works that you're doing through through the all. These are just your personal creations. You're not like taking on client work anything. Are you know no also taking on client work.

"mark smith" Discussed on The Wild
"This is Chris Morgan people out in the wild for all kinds of reasons was my water that's a real Okay Good Chris Morgan impersonations so are we ready to go. I think we're ready to go all right so we wanted to do something yes I am the editor of the wild and who are you and I'm Martin I'm the producer right we got that out of the way all right so anyway Chris interviewed two documentary film-makers about filming penguins in Antarctica Jeff Wilson Mark Smith and we wanted to play an uncut version of this interview just to give you a sense of how the podcast sausages made Yeah penguin sausage if you will anyway so in that same spirit we wanted to Kinda share how this interview came to be on the morning of the taping we had a bit of an issue yeah a little bit of an issue in the Tulsa about that Matt so this was a real logistical nightmare to get this interview put together because Mark Smith and Jeff Wilson they live in the UK and so we had to find a studio there for them to talk to us here in America and you'll get wants schedules together and we finally got it set and triple and quadruple check the time difference we're going to have to be early in the morning for their afternoon we had it all set and we are ready for early the next morning so everything sets perfect you're good to go good to go right and then I wake up in the morning brushing my teeth and then I get ding I'm on my phone and it's a message from Mark Smith and he's saying hey we're in the studio waiting for you guys to connect so there there an hour early so there an hour early and I go into panic mode I'm freaking out 'cause I don't know if we miss this opportunity I don't know if we're GONNA have another one to get both of these guys into a studio again to do this interview so I start making phone calls I call you I call Chris tell him to wake up the engineer and I'm running down to the studio and Jeff and mark great that just went and got some coffee and waited for us to get our game together and then about forty five minutes later everyone's in the studio we get a going and luckily we got a really good conversation and you know what the problem was jim what damn daylight savings the UK which is their clocks and a week before we do America that's just wrong it is wrong backwards yeah so my takeaway is that we just need to get rid of daylight savings across the globe I'm I'm with you on that but it was a little stressed for that morning it's kind of like a duck come on a pond but underneath the water's just frantically paddling away yeah and so that's what we wanted with his bonus episode we wanted to give you guys a little example you get this nice polished podcast episode but there's a lot happening behind the scenes to make that work so this is kind of like the behind the scenes interview with me Mark Smith and Jeff Wilson so we'll start the interview right where Chris got connected to market Jeff in the UK could you increase the volume a little bit of their end or who's WHO's controlling the three studios involved here juggle in it we should probably hello yeah yeah they go it's great that that's much better thanks guys yeah everything good with you guys were just talking about how we really don't WanNa talk about bad so let's get that out the way so uh-huh anyhow introduction was going to be funny she say that Jeff because my first line has we I I remember the first time you're right on the beach there at Camp Mayan Solos Best Jeff that you it is one of those moments isn't it when you see that for the first thing isn't it you know we have such a small industries wildlife filmmakers and thirdly everybody who comes back from Caddo that part of the world says it's going to be one of the up three wildlife experiences and then we'll we'll kind of brushed it off because we've all had amazing wildlife experiences and then then you arrive and you you you get it it's amazing you know that kind of proximity animals and just the world of the places is is mind blowing and it's still it sits at the to this day I think yeah it does doesn't it and I've got so much I saw a clip the other day mark of you with a bear that bear walking right behind you along the riverbank there I remember you filmed right up to the last minute and then just turned around in your eyes like sources kind of thing is a startling place to be is it was it was really good to to meet with you guys but you know the one thing on you know no road no no road access to the area floatplane access only you know but but some of the places you guys have been an and worked it makes that place it seemed like a city park almost you know I just wanted to touch on a very famous clips that that almost everyone is seen at the sequence in planet earth of the Snow Leopard Jason it's prey down that vertical cliff and and that was you guys that captured that and you know just one example of one of extreme places that you've worked what you came away with that was an amazing thing to say well it was an incredible one of those boyzone adventures that you you you never really forget and comes down and we would ways Nestle who is the guy who helped us with that whole the logistics we just having lunch with him just before this so yeah we were just reminiscent about the whole thing and it really is one of those one of those trips which you know Kinda visit is a major landmark in your life really because everything just together with a lot of luck and a lot of planning but a lot of luck as well a you often the that was such a cliche in our industry for things to happen at the last minute Ah that was genuinely one of the times when we were failing miserably right up until the last minute and then and then this amazing amazing mother and popped out of the out of the cliff Ason to offer themselves to us which is just an extraordinary situation I think that genuinely is that sequence started whole thing of an on the last day we got lucky because I actually genuinely that day we've been filming for for weeks with a lot of luck with the snow leopard but still hadn't gotten to you know a hunt sequence which we we'd been dreaming of all these scenarios where it might happen literally was supposed to be flying out not lost day didn't President President Musharraf kind of conduct our our helicopter things what we were told writings there was a helicopter Geeta coming Surroi Pakistan decided that he needed to use it and so we had nowhere to go so we just went back to where we saw this lepers Larsen mark got the magic after but it was completely oh that's a great story so experiences like that sort of sort of ready do for the next extreme thing that you had to take on another one of my favourite behind the scenes clips ever as you guys in the frozen in frozen monnet narrated by Said David Umbro where where you're describing how you film this sequence in this colony of Adelie Pa- Deli Penguins where will you can you set that scene for us you know an and why this species Adelie penguins just kind of bring us into that spot with these oh so we were obviously making a series about the the polar regions and really fortunate access to American Antarctica which really means flying into McMurdo Base from New Zealand and what Mcmurdo Base gives you inability to to sort of shotgun out from their base of logistics into some amazing wildlife experiences and we had teams who were going off and foaming penguins and teams who are going off and filming underwater and mark and I think probably drew the short Straw because no one else wanted to do it and they sent us to the Adelie Penguin Colony which is you know everybody it was an extraordinary if you remember but people would would look at us when we told them that will to this place called Coke Kate Crozier fantastic famous place in polar expedition kind of literature because Scott had sent a team of scientists that collect some eggs member penguin eggs and and that formed part of a story called the worst journey in the world so in literature it's a very famous place but when you arrive in Mcmurdo people look at you and they go you're crazy okay good luck with that and like we might not think that people volunteer to go and then US we kind of naively did and paid the price and you were there for on that project four months was filmed well no full months we had a break in the middle but yeah we were there for a long long time and and mock what were the what were the conditions like that how can you describe what life is like for Penguin or film microfilming penguins in a place like is pretty bleak I mean the reason that the people were laughing about Cape Crozier was go reputation for the strongest winds and the reason the the colonies are is because the winds are so strong they blow all snow and ice off off the ground so at least the penguins have bayrock to to nest on so it's not surprising that it's not surprising the very windy place and so we we've got there and it was aroma very well it was beautiful day we got everything on packed and sold is going to be a total literally within twenty four hours we went out and the winds start to get up and we go into one of the biggest stole well the big storm I've been in winds up to one hundred fifty one was an hour and we were stuck in his cabin for three four days and it was just you know we're literally sitting in nothing can this the roof is going to come off this thing we're GonNa die all equipment is going to be blown away and and it was just extraordinary experience and we can have the penguins going off to a fairly positive list of things you know we would literally have been thrown in the defend at that point so these kind of an extra and I am an assistant field assistant who who is so and the scientists who who joined us came we spent our first month kind of exploring the whole thing on our own having obviously we talked with the scientists at length before we'd gone on the shoot when I remember one of the things that someone had failed to explain to us is that we intentionally arrived before the daily had come back to the continent of Antarctica and someone had failed to Clinton the entire and the deadly Connie is basically built on thousands and thousands of thousands of years of decaying dead penguins and so I remember walking in to the colony that first time and all you see for as far as the I can see is basically penguin carcasses and and I can read distinctly remember thinking body.

"Ninety seven seven the numbers are still coming in but we're starting to see the picture develop following. Tuesday's primary elections across the country but might all need university of Washington political science professor Mark Smith spoke with komo's, Charlie harder Mark I was reading, today an analysis on CNN saying at least in Washington state Democrats have reason to be hopeful for the November election do you agree with? That assessment yeah definitely in that if you look at various legislative. Districts around the states you find, Democrats running from several points stops. Montana's fifteen points higher. Than they normally do so. If you're say a traditionally somewhat leaning Republican district of five to ten points. Those kind of districts are now up for grabs and could potentially flip democratic come the general election In two districts which caught my attention were the eighth district, in which Dino Rossi is going, to be facing off against a democratic challenger and then the sec I. Believe it's the, second day with, Spokane where you have Cathy McMorris, Rogers he's, a member of house leadership, facing. A strong challenge from a former, member of the state Senate yeah that's right so those those two congressional districts are, certainly in play we expected the eighth district one. To be in play less so the second, but. In the in the eight often you can do, at least a back of, the envelope projection of the general election it you take. The two party vote in the? Primary, benefits split up, between different candidates you assume most Democrats who voted for, one of the democratic cancer probably gonna be for, whoever won over the Republican candidate and. Vice versa and when you when you do that for the eighth district I think, Rossi was at forty seven percent and the three democratic candidates combined where where it. Over fifty so Right now Kim, shires barely in the. Lead but assuming she stays. In the league she's, likely to consolidate the democratic support and she at least starts with an advantage in the in the general election and that's the district that if. Remember correctly I don't think has ever elected, a democrat for our Republican friends. The as we take a look at the broad picture here is there anywhere particularly in the country. Particular, race perhaps. This just the US Senate where they might be able. To hold a little hope that their party is going to perhaps do welcome. November I think they have a lot, of hope for for two main reasons one is the map especially in the US Senate. We're only a third of the seats are up so even if you know the. Country had a certain desire to flip some of those seats it just can't happen because they're not they're not up and if you look. At the ones that are up there disproportionately in in red, states and you've got some democratic, senators in those states they're facing tough challenges so that's true in Indiana. And In. Montana in West Virginia in Florida so the US Senate even if there's a Blue Wave a, democratic wave Republicans are pretty likely to. Hang onto this.
