Morning Brew: James Ross in today, Phil's back tomorrow. Comedy this morning as the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow @ Fringe Club returns to HK tonight. Billed as one of the most exciting voices in Australian Comedy, Becky Lucas joins us on the show after 11.30. Before that, it's rugby after 10 and Robbie McRobbie, big wig at Hong Kong Rugby Union will update us on the Asian Sevens, the Women's Premiership, and a throw forward to the Rugby World Cup which kicks off on Friday in Tokyo. After 11 we're off to the races with William Nader, Director of Racing at the Jockey Club - HKJC Racing. We round it all off with Paddington Bear! On Saturday 28th the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra are putting a great new concert for kids wrapped around Michael Bond's famous stories of the bear from Peru. Eric Monson is the narrator, and he'll join us after 12 to tell us more! (9:30am-1pm, email firstname.lastname@example.org )
Welcome to a new week on Morning Brew. We start the week as usual with all the latest news from the local and Asian gentleman's game, courtesy of International Man of Rugby (and mystery), Robbie McRobbie. At 11.10 (for this week) Dr. Merrin Pearse reports live from deepest New Zealand, with all the eco-benefits of chronic jet lag. After 12 we catch up with Canadian adventurer and film maker Markus Pukonen (Routes of Change), who's really making progress in his quest to travel the world without the use of power. He's just overcome what seemed to be a little stumbling block last time we spoke, kayaking across the Malacca Strait. He's also now going full steam ahead on his documentary.
