Minnesota Public Radio Stories

  • Follow the health care dollar
    We know we spend a lot of dollars on health care, but where does all that money actually go? That lack of detailed knowledge about one of our biggest expenses seems to not even trouble many consumers of health care, until they have to pay for it themselves.9:06 a.m.
    Uwe Reinhardt: Professor of Economics and Public Affairs at the Woodrow Wilson School at Princeton University.
    Elizabeth McGlynn: associate director at RAND Health. She directs the COMPARE initiative which looks at the costs of health care proposals.
  • Images of the flag here and abroad
    You could call the U.S. Stars and Stripes an artistic obsession for Lauri Lyons. The photographer asked people she met on the street to pose with the flag and then talk about what the national symbol meant to them. And then she took the project abroad, with some surprising results.10:06 a.m.
    Lauri Lyons: photographer and multimedia artist. Her photographs are collected in Flag International (2008) and Flag: An American Story (2001).
