About Adam Savage
One of the most highly regarded and watched series on Discovery Channel, "MythBusters" ran for 14 earth-shattering years. 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, in addition to creating content for his website Tested.com, Adam has become a proponent for making, working with the White House to encourage kids and adults alike to get their hands dirty.
