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.

Stacy Rumaker (@StacyRumaker, The Night Cap With Stacy Rumaker, The Dick and The Dame) joins us to discuss The Black Mirror episode that is memory implant research, how baleen whales lost their teeth and why tornados are multiplying.
