Episode Notes

The boys discuss the ongoing political drama in Kosovo between (Acting) Prime Minister Albin Kurti and President Hashim Thaçi, and their respective supporters. Why did Kurti's government fall and what has been the role of the international community in these events, in particular as concerns the U.S.' Amb. Richard Grenell? Most excitingly, hear clips from Albin Kurti's recent press conference for foreign media - including his views on Thaçi, Grenell, and the famed "land swap". All this and Star Wars on this week's episode of Sarajevo Calling.
