They're bearded, they're brainy, and they've got a taste for adventure. Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman, the San Francisco-based co-hosts of the popular Discovery Channel show "MythBusters," join us in-studio to talk about swimming in syrup, dipping their hands in molten lead and paddling a canoe made of duct tape, all in the name of science.

Host: Michael Krasny

Guests:

  • Adam Savage, co-host of "MythBusters"
  • Jamie Hyneman, co-host of "MythBusters" and owner of M5 Industries, the special effects workshop where the show is filmed
