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.
Welcome to Wednesday. It's a bookish Morning Brew today. After 10 we catch up with NYC Correspondent Tracy Quan. Today: Writer and NYU Prof Christian Parenti's take on why millions of people voted for the incoming US President, and how if you are going to be in the Apple, you should visit a stunning exhibition called "Broken Beauty: Ruins of the Ancient World". At 10.40 we meet "The Sheriff of Wanchai". Former roughty-toughty copper Peter Mann joins us to talk about his recently published memoir, which recounts his adventures in the final decades of Colonial rule in Hong Kong. After 11.40 the first of two looks at the 2016 International Writers' Workshop, which is hosted by the HK Baptist University. Once a year several international and local authors come together here for talks and discussion about their work. Today we meet American poet, Professor Brian Kim Stefans. At 12.10 The Pilates Athlete Jason Clark will do pelvic floor exercises for your delectation and Facebook Live viewing pleasure (on our MB Facebook Page). (9:30am-1pm, ,email email@example.com )
