Today on Morning Brew, a slight change as Digger Watt is still on his travels. Instead at 10.10 we catch up with adventurer Markus Pukonen, the Canadian guy who's traveling the world without the use of power. He may however have hit a temporary stumbling block courtesy of some good old bureaucracy. We'll see. At 10.40, Dr. Merrin Pearse makes his weekly eco-call to talk about ocean observations over this past weekend, from Aberdeen and Po Toi Island. After 11.30 we welcome back Jason Curran from HK's top diddly-diddly band The Privateers to talk about this Saturday's Sai Kung Live #2. At 12.10 Business Futurist Morris Miselowski joins us on the line from Melbourne to talk about what "just might" be. Today we go retro. As Nintendo releases its "classic" SNES game console we talk about the seemingly natural reversion to times gone by in tech.(9:30am-1pm, email firstname.lastname@example.org )
On Morning Brew today we head down under with Aussie correspondent Digger Watt at 10.10. Today East Timor celebrates its first election without the need for peacekeepers - but did you know their independence movement in 1999 was fueled by a couple of Aussie punks singing songs in the East Timorese language? Today is also the International Day for Elimination of Racial Discrimination - or Harmony Day - so the Australian Government will be debating whether it should remove race hate laws. In other news the immigration minister is outraged that CEOs from Australia’s largest corporations have publicly stated the Government should get on with it and legalise same sex marriage. We've lent Dr. Merrin Pearse to Backchat today, so he'll be back with us next week. After 11, all the latest from the world of cricket with CEO of Cricket HK, Tim Cutler. At 11.40 today, we meet a guy who's one of the handful of virtuoso musicians who DIDN'T throw away his school recorder at the age of 11. Quite the opposite for Piers Adams, who's in town this week as soloist with the City Chamber Orchestra of Hong Kong. After 12, Business Futurist Morris Miselowski joins us on the line from Melbourne to talk about the future of banking, especially at the customer level. (9:30am-1pm, ,email email@example.com )
