Adam Savage, the host of “MythBusters” on the Discovery Channel, is a longtime special-effects artist and a minor obsessive. He has spent his life gathering skills that allow him to take what’s in his brain and make it real. He has worked as a special-effects artist, fabricator, model maker and general dreamer-upper for a decade and a half, working on films such as Galaxy Quest and The Matrix sequels, as well as Episodes I and II of the Star Wars series. In 2002, he and his fellow movie-industry veteran Jamie Hyneman became the hosts of “MythBusters,” a Discovery Channel show that puts urban myths and rules of thumb to test in hilarious ways. Behind the sheer awesomeness of their rocket cars and flaming projectiles, the MythBusters are a force for science education. Join us Tuesday morning to enjoy what’s sure to be an extremely entertaining hour!
