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.

Comedian Miles Roberts (@milesboberts) joins us talk about NASA’s job posting for a Planetary Protection Officer, why American runners have been getting slower and cockroaches that farm mushrooms. Plus we take a close look at sexuality in space.

 

PLANETARY PROTECTION OFFICER IS PROBABLY NOT THE JOB YOU THINK IT IS

AMERICANS ARE GETTING SLOWER (AT RUNNING)

COCKROACH FARMERS
