Adam Savage Interview from Reason Magazine – Why people watch

“We don’t pander to kids and we never set out to make a show that is educational, if we had, we would have failed.”

That line is from Adam Savage of Mythbusters. Yes, I have written about them before, but this line speaks directly to my ideas on how to create great stuff that people want to watch.  Don’t pander. Remember to include a narrative arc.  All great advice.

Watch the entire interview, with Matt Welch, it’s about eight minutes long from Reason.TV

Perhaps the most useful data point from the interview, there are actually no ill effects from double dipping. Take that Timmy!
