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.
