Morning Brew: Good Morning. It's Fryday. After 10 we'll catch up with old friend Chef Jason Black on the line from South Africa, with all his news and of course his foodie know-how. At 10.40 RJ Asher joins us in the studio. It was Pi (3.142 blah blah) Day earlier this week, but every day is Pie Day for RJ so we'll get some great tips from him too. If you are a Sci-Fi fan, listen after 11 as we meet one of the world's best known speculative fiction writers and multi award winning author of "Coyote Rising", Allen Steele. He's in town for the Melon Sci-Fi & Beyond Conference. Allen will be joined by the founder of the event, Fritz Demopoulos. At 11.40 some more great live music from awesome US blues man Doc White, who's back in town for just a couple of days. We're off to the movies as usual after 12 with reviewer James Marsh. Join us on Facebook Live throughout the morning. (9:30am-1pm, email email@example.com )
It's a new week on Morning Brew and to get things going at 9.40 we catch up with New York Correspondent Tracy Quan. Last week she went to the Brooklyn Academy of Music to see cult filmmaker Lizzie Borden presenting her 1983 classic "Born In flames", a gritty female-driven scifi set in a socialist America during the ten-year anniversary of the "war of liberation." Many of today's established players (such as Hollywood director Kathryn Bigelow) appeared in it during their early years. At 10.40 (just this once) its all about rugby with the CEO of HK Rugby, Robbie McRobbie. He'll give us all the latest in the local and Asian game, and possibly give us another exciting piece of Sevens news. At 12.10 we welcome author Nigel Collett with his new book "A Death in Hong Kong". It deals in a very sensitive and in depth manner with one of the most high profile and (still) puzzling Hong Kong "scandals" in many years; the 1980 death of policeman John MacLennan. After 12.40 we'll 'find out about the upcoming Hong Kong debut of US "shoegaze" band The Beach Fossils, with guitarist Tommy Davidson. (9:30am-1pm, email firstname.lastname@example.org )
