Welcome to Morning Brew. New York Correspondent Tracy Quan is busy today, so we'll start the week after 10 with all the latest from the world of local and Asian Rugby, with the CEO of HK Rugby, Robbie McRobbie. After 11, we meet author David Nunan. Very well known in the world of education, his textbook series ‘Go For It’ is a number one best-seller, with worldwide sales exceeding 4 billion. Today though, he'll tell us about his new collection of stories "Other Eyes, Other Voices", which documents the lives and experiences of a group of Expats in Hong Kong. Why did they come? Why do they stay? (9:30am-1pm, email email@example.com )
Welcome to Friday on Morning Brew. At 10.10, instead of our usual Friday food bit, we're going to find out about the hit West End play The Curious Indecent of the Dog in the Night-Time. It's being performed here by The National Theatre of Great Britain as part of the Hong Kong Arts Festival. We meet one of its stars, Sam Newton. After 11, British Rhythm and Blues legend Georgie Fame will be with us for some music, chat, and a look forward to his weekend gigs at Grappa's Cellar. At 11.40, the music goes on, this time with eclectic Mexican duo Deer Mx, and a brand new Hong Kong inspired EP, Portraits. We'll park the ride for this week after 12 with movie critic James Marsh. Join us on Facebook Live throughout. (9:30am-1pm, email firstname.lastname@example.org )
