The recording indicates Giuliani hopes to have four or five episodes "to analyze the impeachment in every aspect." CNN reports that it appears he intends to have four episodes done before the Senate trial to tell his side of the story as the public testimony begins on Wednesday following weeks of closed-door hearings.

Giuliani’s spokeswoman Christianné Allen confirmed to CNN the former mayor talked about the podcast idea at lunch Saturday. 

"Many Americans want to hear directly from Rudy Giuliani," Allen said. "He is considering several options, in consultation with Jay SekulowJay Alan SekulowOn The Money: Stocks tumble on Trump China trade remarks | Trump says deal could come after 2020 | Why Wall Street freaked | Trump loses appeal over Deutsche Bank subpoena Appeals court rules Deutsche Bank must turn over Trump financial records to House Justice Dept releases another round of summaries from Mueller probe MORE and the legal team, regarding the best way to move forward.

Witnesses for the initial impeachment hearings behind closed doors have named Giuliani as a central figure in the controversial dealings between the White House and Ukraine that started the impeachment inquiry.
