The Weekly Show with Alex and Dahlia, Ep. 4: UO increases tuition, student protests



Going to the University of Oregon just became a little more expensive.

This week on The Weekly Show with Alex and Dahlia, co-hosts and head news correspondents Alexandra Wallachy and Dahlia Bazzaz discuss Thursday’s Board of Trustees meeting – during which trustees voted to raise the cost of tuition – and the student protests that followed.

Also this week: Yik Yak users have been congregating to anonymously discuss Eugene’s pleasant weather. An 82-year-old Swede named Kerstin Wolgers used the Internet for the first time. Alex and Dahlia ponder the important questions: Is she a Mac or a PC? Has she discovered World Star Hip-Hop? Has she listened to The Weekly Show yet?

This – and plenty more – on The Weekly Show. It’ll be on iTunes soon, but for now, you can stream and download it on SoundCloud below.
