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 Tuesday on Morning Brew. A big thanks to Pete King for sitting in yesterday. We start at 10.10 with a weekly chat with Harvey Stockwin. It's 25 years since the fall of the Berlin Wall, and by an interesting coincidence, special guest former Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev predicts a renewed Cold War. North Korea is stomping its feet again, and APEC in Beijing seems to have created way more inconvenience to the people than OC apparently has. At 11.40, as part of the HKBU's International Writer's Workshop, we'll meet Irish novelist and short story writer Philip Ó Ceallaigh. After 12, the first piece of English theatre to handle the Umbrella Movement: "Tear Gas". We meet playwright Maryjane Alejo, and fellow members of Brave Heart Theatre.(9:30am-1pm, , email firstname.lastname@example.org )
