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) returns to talk with us about T-Rex’s newfound lack of feathers, the results of China testing gene editing on humans and a conspiracy-rich hole on Mars. Plus we figure out if it’s possible to talk to squirrels.
