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 and actor Elyssa Phillips (@elyssamp) joins us to discuss Elon Musk’s plan to start a civilization on Mars, a new way to possibly induce long-term sleep, and why some kids in Africa have more willpower than kids in the western world. Plus we take a look into nuclear power and the water in New York.
