About Adam Savage:
One of the most highly regarded and watched series on Discovery Channel, “MythBusters” ran for 14 earth-shattering years.Â Co-executive produced and Co-hosted by Savage, the show mixed scientific method with problem-solving gleeful curiosity and plain old-fashioned ingenuity to confirm or bust myths, popular misconceptions and creating its own signature style of explosive experimentation. Today, inÂ addition to creating content for his website Tested.com,Â Adam has become a proponent for making, working with the White House to encourage kids and adults alike to get their hands dirty.Â He’s also a regular at conventions across the country, where his elaborate and handmade costumes (such as Totoro at New York Comic Con) attract much attention … and hugs.
