New York Times best-selling author Paul French returns to the airwaves with another of his specially adapted (for Morning Brew) short stories. Listen here to our new four part podcast of 'Carry On Kidnapping', which takes us back to northern China in 1932. To a chaotic time when poverty, war, and desperation led to an epidemic of kidnappings by local bandits, eager to secure large ransoms. It was often pretty good business for them. That is, until the snatching of 19 year old English woman, Muriel ’Tinko’ Pawley. This was a big mistake for the bandit leader who thought she’d be easy money, as she was to become his worst nightmare.
This Saturday's All Being Well is the last in this series, and were signing off the season with quite a show!

Breakdancing, which became massive in the 1970s (but can trace its roots back to the 1890s!), is the newest official Olympic sport. We will be joined by the HK Dance Sport Association - Breaking Division, to talk about our local scene and how they are gearing up for the Paris Olympics. Plus, they will stage an unmissable live performance.

On Friday's Backchat, we’ll look at job scams, as the government said eight Hongkongers are currently being held captive in Myanmar after being lured overseas with fake job offers.
The Security Bureau said it had received 20 trafficking reports involving Hong Kong residents since the beginning of the year, with 12 of the suspected victims now safe. Ten of them have since returned to the SAR.
A cross-department task force is now set up to rescue kidnapped residents across Southeast Asia.
What do you think? How serious is the cross-border scam situation?
After 9:15, we’ll look into the government’s plan to upgrade and widen Lion Rock Tunnel, in a bid to reduce traffic jams in peak hours.
