Q & A with the Mythbusters

The Freakonomics Blog has a great interview with Mythbusters stars Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage.

Question include:

Q: Do you have a set budget for each myth, or does it depend on the size of the myth? How often do producers tell you that an experiment will be too expensive?

Q: You mention often on the show that many viewers point out flaws in your methodologies. Which myth has created the most controversy?

Q: When testing a myth, how often are you sure of the results beforehand, but perform the test anyway just to show it on TV?

Q: What percent of the time are you actually trying to get an answer to a question, and what percent of the time are you just blowing up stuff for grins?

The full interview is here.

Enjoy!
