GeekSugar Interviews Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman From MythBusters

GeekSugar Talks to Jamie and Adam From MythBusters

When I moved to San Francisco, I instantly became hooked on a popular show called MythBusters. Now in its seventh season, the show is filmed right here in the city (bigger stunts are filmed in the Bay Area) and is hosted by the original MythBusters themselves — Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage. By using scientific technique and incorporating carefully-planned stunts, props, special effects (which usually involves something being blown up) and other elements into the show, the entire team — which also includes Tory Belleci , Grant Imahara and Kari Byron — investigates myths or "urban legends" to see whether they are "busted," "plausible," or "confirmed." They test out all sorts of cool myths including putting your hard drive in the freezer to bring it back to life (which was actually confirmed!). Saying the show is your ninth grade science class on steroids is an understatement.

I got the chance to geek-out with Jamie and Adam this week at the Mythbusters studio where we talked tech and where I toured the grounds and saw where it all goes down! MythBusters new season premieres next Wednesday at 9 p.m. on the Discovery Channel.

Looks like so much fun! It's neat to see inside this studio. I learned there's no need to run in the rain from this show. You get more wet!
