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 Writer Bryan Musil joins us to talk about new ways of modeling drugs on the molecular level, why the last few dozen vaquitas (mexican porpoises) may soon be gone, and a new shock treatment that might be helping coma patients.
