Can you tell your quarks from your elbow? If not, never fear,
because these episodes will be your guide to particle physics, and,
specifically, what’s called the Standard Model. Has absolutely
nothing to do with the catwalk, but instead the fundamental
building blocks that make up all of visible matter and energy in
