Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia celebrate 30 years since the legendary "Baltic Way" protest against Soviet occupation while Rīga inaugurates its third(!) mayor of 2019, PNB Bank's owner sues to stay open, and the Kariņš government tepidly supports Minister of Education Ilga Šuplinska (JKP) in her ongoing conflict with the University of Latvia. Otto and Joe not only discuss these stories and more, but also check in with correspondent Kris Akenfelds to see how his first month living in Liepāja has gone.
