Latvia Weekly Podcast #115: Five Years for Lembergs and News from February 19th - 24th, 2021

Otto and Joe break down this court decision as well as other stories, including an increasingly worrying bird flu situation, more bumps on the road toward better cycling infrastructure in Rīga, an international basketball heartbreak, and the latest COVID-19 updates.
