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.

Filmmaker Peter Hyoguchi (peterhyoguchi.com) joins us to get into the new oldest human bones ever found, a technique for reading human facial representations in the brains of monkeys and how electrical stimulation to the head might increase creativity. Plus we talk about climate science and get deep into some conspiracy theories.
