CERN - Large Hadron Collider Podcast
Summary: Particle Physicist Dr Brian Cox invites a series of unlikely guests around the biggest experiment in the history of the universe (well this one) ever. Is it a chat show? Is it an introduction to particle physics? Is it just a jolly day out in Gevena? Maybe all three.
Ed Vaizey is a UK Conservative member of Parliament and a keen supporter of funding in science. Brian invited him to CERN to look at the LHC from a politcal standpoint.
It's Chris Morris, British satirist, comedy writer, actor and director and all. Here he is at CERN visiting ATLAS and CMS with Brian and chums.
The Bad Astronomer AKA Phil Plait came to visit the LHC and with Brian Cox discusses life as a skeptic.

The Very Revd Victor Stock visited CERN and in a fascinating conversation with Dr Brian Cox centring the Religion v Science debate, both found there was more common ground than is generally accepted.
Quentin Willson of Top Gear and Fifth Gear fame is a fan of engineering on a massive scale, so where better to go than to the LHC.
Kevin Eldon and Simon Munnery explore CERN's Computer Centre and then go 100 metres underground into the heart of the LHC itself.
Comedy writers and performers Kevin Eldon and Simon Munnery explore CERN's biggest detector, ALTAS.
Dr Brian Cox talks to CERN's head of Theoretical Physics Professor John Ellis about Super Symmetry, Super Strings, and a Super picture of Higgs in a bathing suit.
Everything (well lots anyway) you wanted to know about CERN in the time it takes to boil an egg.
Charles Jencks, landscape designer extraordinaire, talks to Dr Brian Cox about how he presents and represents the Universe in his work as one of the world's leading architects and is inspired by the ATLAS detector in the LHC.
John Barrowman AKA Captain Jack from Torchwood and Dr Who talks to Particle Physicist Dr Brian Cox at CERN. They visit the Large Hadron Collider - the biggest experiment in science ever ever in the Universe. But first they have lunch.
