Plus: a complete catalog of our injuries.

Kari Byron and Tory Belleci

Kari Byron and Tory Belleci returned to The Big Wakeup Call to talk about their new Netflix series, “The White Rabbit Project.”  We discussed the concept of the show, why Kari repeatedly slapped Tory in the face, whether or not we’ll see Tory going over Niagara Falls in a barrel, and what we could see when they release a “wacky bloopers” reel.

Kari Byron and Tory Belleci on their new show “Thrill Factor”

You know Kari Byron and Tory Belleci from their work on the groundbreaking series “Mythbusters.”  They are now featured in a new Travel Channel show “Thrill Factor,” which explores the science behind thrill rides as they visit amusement parks across the country.  We had a fun chat about fear, monkey brains, screaming and how many times in a row one has to ride a roller coaster when shooting a TV series.
