Over the six episodes, Mr Turnbull spoke to leaders across the globe and at home.  

This is the podcast that I actually have done myself, after being on lots of other podcasts. I think it’s a really interesting medium, and it’s extraordinarily diverse,”

When talking to Theresa May about democracy in the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Mr Turnbull commented on the character of Vladimir Putin, the president of Russia. 

I cannot reconcile the very rational, cold, analytical, calculating guy I had got to know before and while I was prime minister to the reckless person who launched this invasion. Leaving aside the criminality and brutality of it, it was just so misconceived.”
