It's Friday on Morning Brew, and the perfect chance to at least attempt to talk about cooking with Chefs Big Mick Van Warmelo and Chris Wayne" Kerr. Join us on Facebook Live after 10 for the usual nonsense. At 11.10 we're off to the races. There are two huge horse races happening this coming week at Sha Tin. Two big time racing commentators Rob Burnet from Aus, and Robert Kieckhefer from the USA will join us in the studio for more. After 11.30, MB's tame quack Dr. Paul Murray will be here with his bag of tricks and a nice bit of on-air proctology. It's movie time as usual after 12, but as James Marsh is away for three weeks, we welcome back the Rabbi Of Reel, Howard Elias. Today: "Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol.2", and the Dutch WW2 story of treachery and betrayal, "Riphagen". (9:30am-1pm, email email@example.com )
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.
