Adam Savage is, in general, a maker of things. Adam may be best known as the co-host of “MythBusters” on the Discovery Channel, but he is also a longtime special-effects artist, fabricator, model maker and general dreamer-upper who has worked on films such as Galaxy Quest and The Matrix sequels as well as Episodes I and II of the Star Wars series. As a self-described “collector of skills,” Adam has spent his life gathering skills to allow him to take what is in his brain and make it real. He is quite possibly the ultimate combination of artist and scientist and brings that analytical and creative mindset with him wherever his often surprising pursuits take him. Join us Tuesday morning to enjoy what’s sure to be an extremely entertaining hour!
