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.

Hector Navarro (Geek & Sundry, @Hectorisfunny) joins us to talk about the new effort to genetically engineer Mammoths from Elephants, why eating meat from young animals might be healthier and 50,000 year-old bacteria found in a cave.
