Today on Morning Brew we're off down under at 10.10 with our favourite radio bogan Jarrod Watt, for our weekly look at what’s occurring in Australia. This week: The High Court ponders the citizenship of 7 members of Parliament, the same sex marriage debate continues to bring hilarious headlines, and there's a high powered bunch of Aussie sports people in China today hoping to start a new era in sport. At 10.40 we catch up with MB’s tame environator Dr. Merrin Pearse. After 11.30 it's Russian opera time. As you do. From St. Petersburg's Elena Obratzova Academy we meet Mezzo Soprano Diana El, and Bass Lev Voronow who are performing here tomorrow. After 12 it’s movies of a different kind, as today in 1888, Thomas Edison filed a patent for the Optical Phonograph. Business Futurist Morris Miselowski will take that wherever he will.

Today on Morning Brew, it's our Thursday thing with Steve Vines at 10.10. In the funny pages this week: Two days ago, with an excitement level that would make your average stamp collecting society AGM look like July the 4th at the Playboy Mansion, HK's Chief Executive hopefuls engaged in a televised debate. Long story short, John asked Carrie if she was aware of all the dislike emojis on her Facebook page, Carrie said "What's Facebook", and the Judge looked out the window a couple of times, hoping they would be serving chocolate biscuits in the interval. Also, like that rather embarrassing social disease that keeps coming back, the issue of National Education seems to have reared its paranoid head again. But, parents have "nothing to worry about", possibly other than whether or not they can afford to get their kids into an international school PDQ! At 11.40 our tame MB vet Dr. David Gething will be in the studio to answer any of your furry questions and tell you about a goldfish that got shipped overseas in an Evian bottle. After 12.30, we'll find out all about pro level...beer pong...here in Hong Kong. We meet the founder of the Beer Pong World Series, Billy Gains, who's here this week from The States.
