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.

Comedy Producer Gil Baron (@gjbaron) joins us to discuss the first ever image of dark matter in the universe, tracking down the source of random bursts of energy from deep space and the X-prize winner for a device that can diagnose diseases in humans, plus a time-travel question sets us on a long tangent about human nature.
