Slovenia, aka Katy's favourite country, is increasingly drawing comparisons with Hungary and Poland when it comes to the state of its democracy. Can this worrying direction of travel be reversed?

You can follow Aljaž on Twitter here and read his blog here.

This episode was produced as part of Sphera, a collective of independent European media. Find out more at sphera-hub.com.
