Welcome to a new week on Morning Brew. Robbie McRobbie will give you all of this week’s rugby news at 10.10. After 10.30 NYC correspondent Tracy Quan wants to tell you about how a recent walk around town examining the outdoor restaurant scene led to thoughts of New York in 1969, when when Norman Mailer ran for mayor. At 11.10 we’ll meet authors (of The Silver Way) Peter Gordon and Juan José Morales, with their new book “Painter and Patron: The Maritime Silk Road in the Códice Casanatense”. Put very simply, it explores some of the hidden stories behind a set of 16th century illustrations depicting life on the ancient trade route. After 12, we’re off to the UK for two reasons. One is to listen to some music by one of the country’s foremost contemporary ensembles, but we’ll also chat to the Delta Saxophone Quartet’s baritone player, Chris Caldwell, about musical life post-Brexit and during COVID.

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 )
