Meaningful Words

We hear from the historian who taught US President Ronald Reagan the Russian proverb, “Trust, but verify,” and about the role it played in helping to end the Cold War. Also on the program, why Russians can’t give a simple response to the question, “How are you?” How China’s “Green Fence” is cleaning up America’s dirty recycling. We meet the New York man who’s searching for the perfect pizza box. Europeans respond to a controversial American luxury car advertisement that mocks their work ethic. And, we explore Crimea’s rich cultural and historic beauty.
