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.

Erika Curry (@gillygal) returns to help us figure out New Zealand’s plan to get rid of all non-native species, evidence that shows neanderthals and early humans were also mostly right-handed and why The Milky Way galaxy is being accused of theft.
