Welcome to Tuesday on Morning Brew. We begin today with news of former Hollywood big gun Harvey Weinstein being convicted of various sexual assaults, which on the surface is a victory for the #MeToo movement. Done and dusted? Well, not according to writer and a former editor of The Nation magazine, JoAnn Wypijewski. She has been following this trial avidly, and along with other close observers feels that "it’s very hard to see how justice won today". We find out why at 10.10. After 10.30 Aus Boy Jarrod Watt returns with all the news from Down Under, plus music from The Barons of Tang and The Putbacks. At 11.10 we travel to Whakatane in New Zealand to catch up with Dr. Merrin Pearse. We’ll attempt a Facebook live video link. After 12, more business futurism with Morris Miselowski, live from Melbourne.

Welcome to Thursday on Morning Brew. Commentator (Commendatore) Steve Vines is back after 10 for his weekly look as Asia’s Weird City. The big news this week does concern airborne particles, but not the kind that come from a canister. Something far worse, and with the traditional Lunar New Year migration about to happen on the mainland, it really is now a force to be reckoned with. After 11 we meet legendary Slovenian music and cross media group Laibach, who performed here last night. The gig was called ‘Sound of Music’, which references their iconic rehash of...The Lonely Goatherd (and other songs from the classic musical...but why?). Dr Dave the vet will be with us at 11.40 today. With a new year around the corner, we’ll probably end up talking about firecrackers and rats at some stage. After 12 it’s our weekly wine class with Maestro JC Viens who’s somewhere in deepest Europe today.
