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.

Standup Riley Silverman (@ryesilverman) joins us to talk about some weird signals from deep space, is it aliens? Plus has insomnia evolved in humans for a reason? And can anything kill Tardigrades, a.k.a. Water Bears?

ALIENS!? IT’S ALIENS, ISN’T IT?!

INSOMNIA IS A GOOD THING?

Did we evolve insomnia as a way to survive?

TARDIGRADES!
