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.

Nicky Urban returns to talk with us about a new robotic implant for heart patients, how to turn on a mouse’s killer instinct with lasers and why GOP legislators in Wyoming are trying to outlaw clean energy.
