http://online.itp.ucsb.edu/online/kitp25/weinberg/

Steven Weinberg gave an interesting talk about the current situation in particle physics yesterday (7 October) calledWhere Do We Stand?

Audio is available----as well as slides and video. Around minute 18 into the audio he starts talking about the cosmological constant and dark energy. Uses the image of a bone stuck in the throat.

the whole 25th Anniv. of Kavli Institute Santa Barbara ("The Future of Physics") is overwhelmingly dominated by Particle Physics perspective but, given that reservation, looks like it will have some fascinating talks.
