How have regional leaders responded to the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic to the Western Balkans? Are restrictions on media freedom and public discourse the the way to deal with a viral contagion - or is this another alarming moment of regional democratic backsliding? And what exactly is a "zeljanik"? All this and more on Episode 21.

Sarajevo Calling is a podcast about Southeast European affairs, focusing in particular on the contemporary politics of the Western Balkans. Hosted by journalist Aleksandar Brezar and political scientist Jasmin Mujanović, and with graphics provided by Boris Stapić, Sarajevo Calling posts new episodes every two weeks.

This time we were without the services of our sound editor Esad Rebihić, who usually makes us sound so much better than in real life. Please admire his other work here.
