"Atlaist" is our first ever "Latvian word of the week," with growing movements to dismiss both Saeima (parliament) and Rīga City Council. Join Otto and Joe as they discuss these ongoing situations along with a new plan for medical workers' salary raises proposed by Health Minister Ilze Viņķele, major legal troubles for Rīga Central Market, yet another diplomatic row with Moscow, a bold proposal to solve traffic problems caused by electric scooters, and a major battle in Jelgava that was commemorated during the week. International Meet-up coordinator Zane Reiter also joins via phone to discuss life and weather in Ķekava, and the process of moving away from Rīga to the suburbs.
