Host Adam Conover uses a smart combo of comedy, history and science to dispel widespread misconceptions about everything we take for granted in his fast-paced and highly acclaimed tru TV series. Adam is like that friend who knows a little bit too much about everything and is going to tell you about it…whether you like it or not…
Adam takes on a new theme in each episode, ruining various topics for viewers, including Security, Cars, Elections, Childhood, Sex, Nutrition, Work, and Death. Adam has shown viewers why the TSA doesn’t keep us safe; how donating shoes to Africa does more harm than good; and why you may not want to order seafood out again.
And here’s the thing: HE’S NOT MAKING IT UP! His mind blowing facts and science call the Myth Busters to mind.
