Grant Imahara, "The White Rabbit Project"

I was a big fan of "Mythbusters," watching all the episodes in its 14 seasons with Adam Savage, Jamie Hyneman, Kari Byron, Tory Belleci, and Grant Imahara. That show went off the air this year and Adam and Jamie went their separate ways, but Kari, Tory, and Grant are still working together on a new show, “The White Rabbit Project,” for Netflix (which released all ten episodes for streaming Friday). When Grant appeared on my show, we discussed:
  • Whether he had a robot pop the question to his girlfriend when they got engaged this week.
  • What happened to Geoff Peterson, the skeleton sidekick he created for Craig Ferguson's "Late Late Show."
  • Why the new show is called “The White Rabbit Project." 
  • The stories he, Kari, and Tory tell on the new show and devices he created (like the "cryo-gun").
  • Whether Tory hurts himself in the new show as much as he did on the old one.
  • The frustration of the "Speed" bus jump he tried to recreate on "Mythbusters" in 2009.
  • What are Adam and Jamie are up to post-"Mythbusters."
