Australian comedian/writer/performer Celia Pacquola and American comedian/writer/performer TJ Chambers join Matt and Andy this week to dig into the listener mailbag and, for the most part, avoid discussing Gallagher while delving into 3D-printed guns, mainlining oxygen, body farms and the reasons for studying duck genitalia.
Mr. Show’s Karen Kilgariff and Chelsea Lately’s April Richardson both performed at last week’s Bridgetown Comedy Festival, and they also happened to be in attendance for the debacle that was the Serafinowicz/Gallagher episode.

British comedy icon and Look Around You co-creator Peter Serafinowicz and stand-up legend Gallagher join Matt Kirshen and Andy Wood for a live taping of Probably Science at Portland’s Bridgetown Comedy Festival, where things get really uncomfortable as topics range from lower-fat chocolate to stressed-out red squirrels to Gallagher’s strong opinions on height and race in Mexican culture.
Hosts of the hilarious sports/comedy podcast Sklarbro Country Randy and Jason Sklar join Matt and Andy on this week’s episode to talk about the coping mechanisms of Michigan fans, the Lebron James of antimatter, spending $100 million to drag an asteroid, new strategies in the fight against bedbugs and whether we need to be concerned about reaching Peak Penis.

The head of Nerdist Industries himself, comedian/podcaster/actor/musician/host Chris Hardwick makes his first Probably Science appearance on this week’s episode, joining Matt, Andy, and ProbSci prodigal son Brooks Wheelan to discuss using iPhones to detect intestinal worms, parodying Trace Adkins in the name of science, making transplant livers chillax just a little longer, Neanderthals and their too-big eyes, and a completely horrifying bat-eating spider.
It’s a packed house on this week’s Probably Science, with guests Glenn Wool and Lady Carol joining Auggie Smith, Matt and Andy to discuss Mike Tyson’s one-man show, Screamin’ Jay Hawkins and his 75 offspring, whale mouth penises, HIV-curing bee venom and incompetent people who are unaware of their own incompetence.
