Welcome to Thursday on Morning Brew. Today Steve Vines is back with his weekly bag of newsy goodness. Join him with your advanced level comments via email at 10.10. At 11.10 the final part of Paul French’s short story of wartime survival in Macau and beyond; Strangers on The Praia. Originally published in Cha: An Asian Literary Journal in 2016, Paul has expanded and recorded it especially for Morning Brew. Today we find out the answer to the obvious question...”Did she make it?”. Our vet Dr. David Gething is busy this week, so he’ll return next Thursday. At 12.10 another wine whine with Maestro JC Viens, who’s also very happy to answer any of your questions. (9:30am-1pm, email firstname.lastname@example.org )
On today’s Morning Brew, normal Aussie service will be resumed with Jarrod Watt at 10.40. Dr. Merrin Pearse joins us after 11 for his weekly eco-bit. Today we talk about feeding pigs and monkeys, and the new discerning brand of shopper on Lantau Island. At 11.40 we meet four-time Grammy nominated comedian, actor, writer, and producer, Jim Gaffigan. Known as The King of Sundance (we’ll find out why), Jim is set to bring his comedy magic to Hong Kong. Today is Charles Darwin’s birthday (1809), so at 12.10 Business Futurist Morris Miselowski ponders how long it will take before humans are born with naturally huge thumbs and a downward curvature of the upper spine...essentially.
