It's Friday on Morning Brew, and all of our chefs are busy cooking this morning. Although frankly that's rather hard to believe, but it seems to be true. So, we'll give the food bit a rest today and play music, then chat after 10.30, to our US politics guy (and author) Peter De Krassel. What exactly does "America first" mean, and is it actually happening? At 11.40, puppy loving crooner David Wright returns with his guitar for some music and news of a furry fundraiser he's host hosting tomorrow with a bunch of comedians. After 12, movie maestro James Marsh returns to the studio after his 3 week freebie tour of the world, to talk about the new Christopher Nolan blockbuster, Dunkirk. In a similar vein he'll also talk about another awfully English film, Their Finest. (9:00am-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 )
