About The Show

Scientifically speaking the funniest podcast on the internet [citation needed]. On every episode of The Science Jerks, co-hosts Ciaccio and Chan bring in a guest comedian to help them take a deep look at the cutting-edge world of science and technology. They analyze current science news with barely-researched, gleeful abandon, often diving recklessly off the philosophical deep end, but more often than not devolving into tangents about sci-fi, film, politics, comics, culture and music.

Dave Christenson joins us to figure out how they can turn skin cells into egg cells and then into babies, how the reports of the Great Barrier Reef’s demise has been greatly exaggerated, and why the placebo effect works, even if you know it’s the placebo effect working!
