I just saw this public lecture and I really enjoyed it (the lecture begins at about 18 minutes into the video). He is an engaging and rather funny speaker. At the end there is a Q&A in which he for instance goes into some of the misconceptions about quantum mechanics.
David Kaplan is also one of the coproducers of the documentary Particle Fever, which I also very much enjoyed.

A crash course on particle physics, collider experiments, and quantum field theory. The speaker explained the significance of detecting the Higgs Boson particle, its impact on the field, and the justification for featuring it in a documentary film."
