This week’s Political WorldView podcast looks at tough-guy leader Vladimir Putin and the man who wants to join him, Donald Trump.

The panel — Adam Quinn, Christalla Yakinthou, and Scott Lucas of the University of Birmingham — start with Trump’s self-inflicted difficulties in the campaign for the US Presidency and then takes on the question of what to do about Putin’s offensive approach to areas from the Crimea to the Middle East, as well as his possible intervention in Trump’s Presidential race.

In between we have Numbers of the Week moving from Australia to Syria to the UK.
