We started off talking about the film Hidden Figures and how NASA has dedicated the street outside of their headquarters to these amazing women! Check out the tweet:
For years, Adam Savage was part of one of our favorite shows on TV: Mythbusters. The creativity that went into their builds was simply fantastic! After Mythbusters went off the air many of us had a hole in our hearts but Adam is back! On his new Discovery show Savage Builds, Adam builds a replica of the Iron Man Mark II armor.. that flies! Now, this isn’t the first time that Adam has replicated an Iron Man suit. Back in 2012, he created the Mark I suit (that helped Tony get ou of that cave he was trapped in). Below you’ll find 3 videos, the new Iron Man suit and a test flight, a video that Adam posted from his shop where he set out to build a stand for his new creation and the video of the original Mark I build.
In this episode Gavin also mentioned a fantastic educational film from 1958 called 4 Artists Paint 1 Tree: A Walt Disney ‘Adventure in Art’ where Marc Davis, Eyvind Earle, Joshua Meador, and Walt Peregoy all paint the same tree in their own mediums. At some point we think the film will be on Disney+ but until then, here it is if you’ve never had a chance to see it:
