Welcome to Fryday on Morning Brew. We’re off to San Francisco at 10.10 to talk to Chef Matt Dolan, live from his restaurant Twenty Five Lusk. He’s a world class chef by night and secret dumpling fiend by day, so that’s what’s on the menu today. After 11 it’s all about Hong Kong’s one and only science fiction conference, Melon 2019: Aliens on the Galactic Silk Road. We welcome the founder Fritz Demopoulos and special guest Robbie Stamp, who is the Executive Producer of the movie version of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. At 11.40 we find out about an upcoming dance performance with quite a difference. “Sidestepped: A Dance for Selective Amnesia” is a collaboration between Butoh choreographer Masami Yurabe and renowned British cellist Oliver Coates. Both of them join us in the studio this morning. After 12 James Marsh is back again with this week’s movie review. Joining James today will be film maker Alexandre Philippe, whose new documentary "Memory: The Origins of Alien" plays tonight at the Hong Kong International Film Festival. We'll be on Facebook Live.

It's Thursday on Morning Brew and your server today will be Judd Boaz. As we said the other day, there will be a few games of musical chairs this month between him, James Ross, and Phil. We kick off at 9.05 with some good ole fashioned requests. Musical dot joining will be back tomorrow with Phil. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org with your favourite songs. After 10 our regular Thursday visit from Steve Vines, who'll be here to chew over the week's weird and wonderful going's on in the ivory towers of Hong Kong. After 11.30 vet and animal physiotherapist Dr. Jane McNae will be with us. She'll also answer any questions you may have. ( Monday-Friday, 9am-1pm, email@example.com)
