Welcome to Monday on Morning Brew. Robbie McRobbie will get things rolling at 10.10 with his weekly rugby update. After that, New York correspondent Tracy Quan will join us from The Big Apple for this week’s news, books, and that shocking Hollywood mishap a few days ago. After 11.30 we’ll catch up with the Westbound Rower, Erden Eruc. He’s now ten days and five hundred miles out of Hawaii after a little stop-over, continuing his solo journey to Hong Kong. Join him, and Ocean Recovery Alliance's Doug Woodring, who is running the Hong Kong end of the project. At 12.40 our man in Vietnam, Neil Runcieman, will be with us live from Ho Chi Minh City. Neil, Erden, and Doug will be on Facebook live.
Welcome to Wednesday on Morning Brew. Tracy Quan puts her movie hat on at 10.10 as we find out about the New York film Festival, from where she's just returned. At 10.40 some interesting stuff and advice from a guy who's an expert in Hong Kong's best known Autumn friends...snakes. William Sargent is HK's snake man. He's an outdoor events organiser with a passion, and the skills, to handle and capture (and re release somewhere safer) these creatures...over 2000 of them actually. At 11.10 the other side of the events in Central over the past week; way cleaner air, due to traffic free streets. This really is unheard of, and MB's Green Giant Dr. Merrin Pearse, will jump up and down a bit about it. After 11, a brand new poetry anthology called "Desde (from) Hong Kong". In the studio, editors Germán Muñoz and Juan José Morales. The fabulous soul songstress Sybil Thomas joins us after 12 for some fun and music. (9:30am - 1:00pm, , email firstname.lastname@example.org)
