Richard is the Deputy Leader of the Opposition and Labor’s Shadow Minister for Defence.
Misha Zelinsky caught up with Richard Marles for a chinwag about how COVID-19 has accelerated history’s timeline, the rising tensions in the Indo-Pacific, why the US is still a force for a good in the world, how Australia’s record defence procurement program can rebuild our manufacturing sector, the choices facing Australia as it seeks to carve out an independent foreign policy, why sovereign capability is the new black, how Australia must do more with its key pacific partners, and why - in order to figure out our place in the world - Australia must play big.
It's a big episode and we hope you enjoy it!
