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 firstname.lastname@example.org )
Welcome to Morning Brew. Phil’s back with you today, and despite Morris Miselowski being away in the air somewhere, we still have the requisite Tuesday antipodean flavour. After 10.30 Jarrod Watt is with us for his weekly report from home. He has a couple a great Aussie tracks for you too. At 11.10 Dr. Merrin Pearse is back for this week’s eco bit. After 11.30 our second guest of the week from the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow, a brilliant annual event run by the guys at the Hong Kong Fringe Club. We meet comic Brennan Reece. Actually from the UK, he won the “English Comedian of the Year” title in 2015, and best newcomer at the Edinburgh Comedy Awards in 2015. Morris will be back with us next week for more business futurism...and stuff.
