Welcome to a new week on Morning Brew. We're off to New York at 9.40 today for our weekly catch up with correspondent Tracy Quan. Yesterday, comedy legend Jerry Lewis died at the age of 91. A role model for many both in and out of the industry, Jim Carey wrote "I am because he was". Says it all. Tracy tell us why he was so important to her, and she has her own insights into Jerry's 1963 comedy classic "The Nutty Professor". At 10.10 the boss of HK Rugby, Robbie McRobbie will be back to talk about the Women's World Cup in Ireland and all the latest in the local and Asian game. At 11.10 we catch up with adventurer Markus Pukonen, the Canadian guy who's traveling the world without the use of power. With a lot of trials and tribulations already, this morning he'll be somewhere in North Vietnam, on his Routes of Change expedition. We'll find out where. After 12, live music. Ryan Harling of The Folk Ups will be here to perform and tell you about their upcoming gig this Friday. Join us on Facebook Live.
On Thursday's Morning Brew, we slip a little deeper into the twilight zone with ccommentator and bar room Svengali, Steve Vines, at his usual time of 10.10. Amid another week of being assimilated by The Borg, two container ships collided some days ago spilling a massive amount of (the very controversial substance) palm oil into the sea. A crack environmental official has said that there are only sporadic patches of the oil left in Hong Kong''s waters. Stamp! Next! The reason for that, however (as all the brilliant people who've been on their hands and knees cleaning up will tell you), is because most of it is caked all over beaches and inside ex-living sea creatures. Quite rightly though the Government's priority is to keep a tight record of how much it spends cleaning up...its gazetted beaches. Meanwhile, on Lamma...At 11.30 our MB vet, Dr. David Gething will be here to talk about plastic surgery for pets, and marijuana (Scooby Dooby Doo). At 12.10 we welcome back author Paul French on the line from Holland. Paul wrote the tantalising best seller "Midnight in Peking", and today we'll find out about his latest work "Bloody Saturday" which chronicles what he calls "Shanghai's darkest day". We wrap up today at 12.40 with some live music of a most eclectic kind from JUNK!. Join is on Facebook Live.
