LW #180: A Little Early, Quite Late, and News from December 13th, 2022 - January 4th, 2023
"Agri" and "vēlu" are the words of the week as this first episode of 2022 comes later than expected. Joe and Otto take a look back on some of the biggest happenings of the last month, such as the swearing in of the new cabinet, the lack of support for a proposed civil union law, the acquittal of former Mayor Ušakovs in lower court, the changing of street names related to the Russian occupation, increased minimum wage, a medical workers' strike on the horizon, Latvia's own lying lawmaker, and much more!
