Welcome to a new week on Morning Brew. Robbie McRobbie will be with us at 10.10 with this week’s local and (of course) World Cup rugby news. We’re off to Japan after 11, but for a slightly different reason. For a few months now we’ve been keeping up with cyclist James Owens, whose challenge was to cycle with a friend from the UK to Japan, while raising money for the charity ChildFund Pass It Back. Needless to say he made it, and we’ll have one last chat today. After 12 another MB traveller, Markus Pukonen, who is going around the world without the use of power, will join us from...well, we’ll find out. (9:30am-1pm, email email@example.com )
It’s Tuesday on Morning Brew. We start just after the 9 news today, and for the next few weeks. We’ll use the extra few minutes to play your requests and dedications. Just email, or post a note on our Facebook page. After 10.30 Aus Boy Jarrod Watt returns with the latest from Down Under and a couple of great homegrown songs. At 11.10 Dr. Merrin Pearse makes his weekly eco-stop on The Brew. And, after 12 more tech tea leaves with Morris Miselowski. Plenty to talk about today, as yesterday marked the anniversary of the birth of Twitter and the death of Netscape. Also, today is the 50th anniversary of the launch of Apollo 11, which was the first mission to land astronauts on the Moon.
