Latvia Weekly Podcast: Episode 15

Although the ice sculptures might have melted at the international festival in Jelgava this weekend, support for Rīga's Mayor Nils Ušakovs among his voter base certainly hasn't, with thousands appearing at a rally in Rīga on Saturday to show their support for the embattled leader. Otto and Joe discuss the implications of the rally along with other key stories that include the increasingly messy divorce of Aldis Gobzems and the KPV LV party, millions misspent on public transit in Rīga, a funding threat to public media, and much more! Segments include "This week in sports," "Deal or no deal," and "this week in Latvian history," and a look at international stories that could affect things here in Latvia.
