Listen: Adam Savage interviews Rick Baker

Sep 5, 2017

The SYFY25: Origin Stories Podcast, hosted by Adam Savage (editor-in-chief, and former co-host of Mythbusters), is a nostalgic celebration of all things science fiction. In this podcast series Adam sits down with creators, thought-leaders, and celebrity fans to discuss the moments, people, and milestones that have changed the genre universe forever. From revealing personal anecdotes to deep philosophical discussions.

Rick Baker, legendary special effects wizard for films like Men In Black, Star Wars, and Batman, joins Adam to talk about confusing Godzilla for King Kong; being taken under the wing of a monster-making legend; and how he fit a 12-foot-tall alien into a 6-foot-tall man.
