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.

Comedian and Author Asterios Kokkinos (Toys ‘4’ Cheap, Devastator Press) catches up with us since the last time he was on the show during Episodes 23 and 24 over 3 years ago, and this time we get really tangential talking about how the European Space Agency (ESA) tried to land a rover on Mars, but ended up with a very expensive bomb, more about this theoretical 9th planet on the outskirts of our solar system and why the scrotum frog of Lake Titicaca is dying out in huge numbers.
