What was feared to be a COVID-19 spike here in Latvia seems to have been more of a bump or a blip, with reported daily cases back down to the low single digits after a worrisome few days of double digit positive cases. Otto and Joe discuss the ongoing situation and its effects on the economy and society, as well as a wide range of other stories including a potential year-round toll for visitors of Jūrmala, radars to trap drivers blowing red lights, a steep discount for people looking to buy a German manor, the first female colonel in Latvian history, and someone in a whole lot of trouble for illegally felling oak trees.
