The geneveMonde.ch podcast produced by Véronique Stenger and David Glaser is devoted to the history of the European Organization for Nuclear Research, better known by its acronym CERN.
If CERN is the subject of our thematic file on geneveMonde.ch available at the end of November, it is because the creation of CERN, the role played by physicists - many of whom were involved in research on the atomic bomb during the Second World War - and the very strong links between the CERN project and international Geneva are eminently important. This second episode of the geneveMonde.ch podcast focuses on other characteristic aspects of CERN's history: the criticism, fears and social protest that have surrounded CERN over the decades. We rely on archival audio from the archives of Radio Télévision Suisse, the Archives Contestaires de Carouge (Geneva) and the CERN Archives.
Sounds of History is prepared and hosted by Véronique Stenger and David Glaser, recorded by Cyril Delemer, the translations provided by Amy Mosher-Araya.
