Kevin Rudd came from humble beginnings in country Queensland to become the 26th Prime Minister of Australia in 2007. He is author of the books ‘Kevin Rudd – The PM Years’ and ‘Not for the Faint Hearted’.
Mr Rudd is currently the President of the Asia Society Policy Institute and is living in New York. On his most recent return visit to Australia, we were able to sit down and have a chat.
In this episode we talk about:
- why young people (including us) are disengaged with politics
