This weekend, the hosts of "Mythbusters" will make a stop at East Lansing's Wharton Center as part of their "Behind the Myths" tour. For ten years, the Discovery Channel show has entertained skeptics, science buffs and ordinary folk alike with a lighthearted and creative approach to science.

Co-host Adam Savage spoke with WKAR's Melissa Benmark about special effects, the complications of translating the often messy show to stage and just how many times something has exploded on the show (hint: it's in the thousands).
