February 6th, 2021 is the day that Sean Turnell's world got flipped upside down. After receiving an anonymous tip off that military leadership in Myanmar were coming for him, Sean went to check out of his hotel, and was arrested.

The 58 year old Economist from Australia would go on to spend 650 days behind bars. Sean shares the horrors of that period with Ant - how he survived Yangon's notorious Insein Prison, what it was like to face spy charges and his bizarre story of release.
