Welcome to Wednesday on Morning Brew. We’re off to the sunny (even at night) Caribbean at 9.40 today to catch up with our friend Janice Jensen from Nevis Animal Speak. Do you find learning languages difficult? After 10.30 we’re going to meet visiting author polyglot Elisa Polese. She speaks 13 languages: Italian, German, Russian, English, French, Spanish, Catalan, Dutch, Greek, Arabic, Hindi, Esperanto, and Brazilian Portuguese. In her book ‘Multilingual learning: how to become fluent in multiple languages’ she maintains it’s really not that difficult (riiiiiight!). Philippe Dova from RTL France will be with us at his usual time of 11.40 today with more stories and Frenchness. No Pilates today, as Jason is busy, so instead our friend Chris Watts joins us for some health chat. (9:30am-1pm, email email@example.com )
Welcome to a new week on Morning Brew. We begin as usual with our regular rugby update from CEO of HK Rugby, Robbie McRobbie. He’s got all the latest in the local and Asian game for you. At 11.10 we’ll find out about his year’s Darkness into Light Hong Kong walk. Hong Kong’s Irish community is once again organising this huge event to show support for those who’ve been bereaved by suicide. It’s happening this coming Saturday, and we’ll find out more from two of the organisers, Brigit Mullane and Clarence Tsang (from Samaritan Befrienders HK). Join us on Facebook Live for this. After 12, we catch up with Canadian adventurer and film maker Markus Pukonen who’s travelling the world using only human power. Last time we talked he was trying to find a way across a large expanse of water. Seems he may have finally done it, but was it plain sailing ? Check out his page Routes of Change for more.
