Everyone knows the MythBusters so the hosts/creators of this YouTube channel, social media outlet, blog and podcast shouldn’t be new to you. Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman started this as an outlet for his enthusiasm for the DIY world of movie and comic props, it also features tech, science and really anything else that could interest Adam and his team at the time.
A little from the website about TESTED:

Through the course of his 25 years of work in the effects industry, Jamie has had his hand in producing effects for over 800 commercials, dozens of feature films, and has built hundreds of prototypes. Adam has multiple hobbies and is passionate about restoring his vintage four-wheel drive vehicle, and researching and accruing new pieces for his movie prop collection. When not shooting shows or working on pet projects, Adam and Jamie travel the country to corporate events, museums, and colleges, for groups as small as 20 and as large as 20,000, telling tales of experiments, explosions, and hijinks. Tested is their home on the web.
