Episode 9

“The Alyona Show,” Episode 9, features a discussion of healthcare reform with Peter and Mat Slutsky. Would Americans ever be willing to pay higher taxes for a European-like system?

Then, in celebrating 20 years since the fall of the Berlin Wall, U2 held a concert, but with an ironic set up. Alyona then speaks with RT Correspondent Priya Sridhar about an inter-racial couple whom one judge in Louisiana refused to marry.

Alyona also takes a look at the new film, “The Men Who Stare at Goats,” a humorous representation of wasteful military spending. This leads to a discussion of a new Pentagon program that sends social scientists to Afghanistan. Also, Alyona compares American defense advertisements with those from abroad.

And then, RT viewers get a sneak peak at the brand new studio that is in the works in the Washington, DC bureau.
