Catch it live:
Monday to Friday 9.30am - 1pm
Good morning! It's Friday on Morning Brew. Today, by the magic of radio, we're going to whiz over to San Francisco after 10 and chat with Chef Matt Dolan, live from his restaurant: Twenty-Five Lusk. Danny Hicks will be with us at 11:10 for 'Sports and All', to talk about last week's Italian Grand Prix and a plethora of other events in the realm of sports. After 12, it's Marshy Movie Time, where James Marsh brings us the best and worst of this week's cinema.
On Morning Brew today, a possible blessing in disguise, as four days after the juicy Legco election (and amid many stories of vote rigging and finessing by one side of the fence) Steve Vines has decided to take a two week holiday. So we all get to keep our jobs for the time being. So, this Thursday we remain election free, oh apart from a little chat with our US politics guy Peter de Krassel at 10.10 about today's Trump-Clinton shindig. At 10.40 we're joined by American composer Matt Tommasini who will talk about the Intimacy Of Creativity Festival, which sees some of the world's greatest musicians, and the next generation of young composers coming here to work together. After 11, "has Apple finally blown it?". More from The Wall Street Journal's Technology Editor Yun Hee Kim. To celebrate World Physical Therapy Day, and how the Gluten Free thing may just be cosmetic rather than a medical necessity for some, Chris Watts is back an hour early today at 11.40. Have you ever wondered about the "demarcation problem"? Of course, so has David Young from HK Skeptics, who will be with us at 12.10.(9:30am-1pm, ,email firstname.lastname@example.org )
