The pod is bedecked with festive streamers and the cheap champagne is flowing in copious amounts as we reach the landmark of 20 podcasts.
Therefore we go back to our roots with academic think-tanker Daunis Auers, who joined us for the very first podcast last September.
Minutes from Latvia podcast 20: The return of Daunis AuersMike Collier/LSM
This time around we talk about Latvia's demographic challenges, comparisons with Ireland's experience, diaspora policy and the likely knock-on effects of 'Brexit' among other topics.
You can read Daunis' research in English for the Certus thinktank HERE and you can follow him on Twitter HERE.
We hope you find the podcast of passing interest.
