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) returns to help us figure out if your gut bacteria can make you a good person, if your health choices can affect your offspring and why poor people look like poor, plus we get deep into genetic engineering, CRISPR, the transporter dilemma and debate the existence of a soul!

Can your guts make you more altruistic?

Epigenetics play a role in embryogenesis

Do I look poor to you?
