Latvia Weekly Podcast #64: Railway Reductions and News from January 15 - 21st, 2020

"Samazināt" is unfortunately our Latvian word of the week, as Latvijas dzelzceļš announces major workforce reductions as well as a decrease in the amount of rail cargo over the last few years. Otto
and Olevs join Joe in Jelgava to discuss the fallout from this news as well as the importance of constitutional changes in neighboring Russia, a mixed economic outlook for 2020, irresponsible visitors to Latvia's forests, and more bobsleigh glory for the legendary Mārtiņš Dukurs.
