The hapless duo of Hadron scientist Dr. Francis “Oppenheimer” Valdini and his somewhat reluctant partner, the kidnapped IT guy Mike Wilkinson, are stranded outside of spacetime in the Hadron Bunker. Alongside the sassy laboratory A.I., a goofy, partially dismbodied maintenance man, and a floating, sentient Higgs-Boson particle, the two struggle ineptly to repair the infamous Hadron Rift. To save the multiverse, Oppenheimer and Mike must visit freaky new alternate timelines, making wacky new friends -- and ridiculous new enemies -- along the way.

I Gotta Brain full of meat!!!
HGH is hilarious smart, and well crafted. I generally describe it to people as Hitchhiker's Guide To The aGalaxy meets MST3K, but this podcast goes effortlessly beyond its influences. Into deeper territory. The Theatre Of The Mind has has never been so cosmic.
Colliding w/ comedy
Take radio serials (like The Shadow and Flash Gordon), variety shows like The Carroll Burnett Show, Your Show of Shows and The Muppet Show), The Young Ones, Hitchhiiker's Guide to the Galaxy - stick it in a blender - and voila you have what the Hadron Gospel Hour could become after this ver promising pilot.
I listen to more than my share of podcasts. Lots of great ideas out there - the problem I usually run into is execution. Not so here - what this crowd does is great. Quality stuff you can really get into and it gets better all the time. Totally entertained, and the production is excellent. Give your brain over to the HGH. You won't regret it.
