Chris Kresser, the author of Your Personal Paleo Code and Chris Masterjohn the author of Cholesterol-and-health.com had a series of interviews on the topic of cholesterol a few years ago, which I just recently stumbled on.  I found these amazingly insightful and chock full of information that I had never come across before, so I decided to take some detailed notes on the interview.
