@Trevtab22 I was thinking the same thing. I think she's saying "Okay"

Some people don't know what to do when there is a pause or an end to a sentence. One of my professors would always say "right" during a pause or an sentence ending i.e. "Sociology is the scientific study right, of human social behavior, right, and its origins development, organizations, right, and institutions, right." Drove me up the wall all the time.

Anyone who's interested in the societal effects of income inequality should read this book; The Spirit Level, why more equal societies almost always do better, by Richard Wilkinson and Kate Pickett, it's brilliant.
