Big Picture Science for August 07, 2017 - Skeptic Check: Busting Myths with Adam Savage

Big Picture Science - Skeptic Check: Busting Myths with Adam Savage

ENCORE: Can an opera singer’s voice really shatter glass?  Can you give your car a rocket-assisted boost, and survive the test drive?  How do you protect yourself from a shark attack?  Those are among the many intriguing questions and urban legends tested by the MythBusters team in front of the camera.

Now that the series has ended after a 16 year run, co-host Adam Savage tells us how it all began, how he and Jamie Hyneman walked the line between science and entertainment, and why he considers himself a scientist but not a “skeptic.”

Also, he reveals the location of the episode, “Duct Tape Island.”

  • Adam Savage - Former co-host and executive producer of MythBusters
