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.

John Conroy (@juanitoelgato) returns to talk to us about satellite evidence of underground caverns on the moon and a giant frozen lake on Mars, why having a big brain is a privilege that not every animal can afford and what’s killing off the world’s reindeer population, is it Christmas? Plus we answer a yahoo question: “Would a horse age differently on the moon?” and a Chan question: “What do horse pants look like?”
