With the end of the year in sight, it's time for YOU to choose the most important person of the year here in Latvia who made a difference for better or worse. Join Otto and Joe as they reveal the top 10 nominations from listeners like you, and cover the week's most important news stories such as strict new anti-drunk driving measures, new regulations designed to protect journalists, a "zero waste" experiment in Viļani, and major updates about the ongoing crises in Rīga and Ventspils. Kris Akenfelds joins in from Liepāja at the end to discuss the holiday season on the amber coast as well as the depressingly slim prospects of a white Christmas.
