Cvetin and Jason bring listeners up to date on the latest scandal in Macedonia – Racket 2 – in which the Minister of Health, Venko Filipce, and the Director of the Health Fund, Dan Doncev, are accused by a Macedonian dialysis firm of…extortion. They explain all of the details on this new scandal before diving back into the ongoing, slow-going, and where is it going scandal involving Boki 13, Katica Janeva – the former Charlie’s Angel and Special Prosecutor of Macedonia – and others. That scandal – Racket – continues with the questioning of the main culprits in the coming week while the government of Zoran Zaev tries to ignore it and move on (hint: they are not doing a good job of that as more information comes out). The possible opening of accession talks with the EU is discussed and why that may not happen in October (France and the Netherlands object and Bulgaria demands that Macedonia say that Goce Delcev was a “Bulgarian”). They talk about the EU project, Zaev’s new draft “media plan” for fighting “fake news,” the truth (and the problem for the West with rejecting truth), NATO membership, the cannabis industry in Macedonia, “Ukraine” Joe Biden, and more. All of that plus our Farmer’s Picks!
