It's another wet Wednesday on Morning Brew and what better way to celebrate than by talking Monster Fish, but only after we start at 9.05 with another musical journey. Our first song today was chosen yesterday by Jarrod Watt. All you have to do is see if you can connect it in any way at all to another song of your choosing. And so on. At 10.10 we meet Zeb Hogan, one of the world’s most famous ecologists and marine photographers. Zeb also stars in the National Geographic TV show Monster Fish. At 11.10 from somewhere in darkest America, we catch up with our USA politics guy (and author of the Custom Maid series) Peter Dekrassel. After The Don’s successful stand-up tour to the UK, there now seems so be a lot of quoting of Section 3 of the US constitution going on. You know, the bit about treason. Philippe Dova can't be with us today. He'll be back next week. At 12.10 the one and only Pilates Athlete Jason Clark returns after his holiday. 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.
