Good morning and welcome to Monday. Off we go at 10.10 for another week on Morning Brew, when Robbie McRobbie will give you his weekly rugby news. After 10.30 best selling author and New York correspondent Tracy Quan returns with more life and books, from the Big Apple. For a handful of years now, on and off, we’ve welcomed “The Park Island Pilgrim” Steve Hackman to MB, when he has reported in from various stages of some of the world’s great ancient trails, such as the Via Francigena. His audio reports and videos were fascinating, and in a logical progression, he’s just finished a book. We’ll find out all about it at 11.40. We catch up with our man in Switzerland at 12.10. Neil Runcieman joins us live from Lucerne, on air and on Facebook Live.

It’s Thursday on Morning Brew. Good morning. At 10.10 today we welcome back our man in Sai Kung, Steve Vines, live on video from his country hideout. As Hong Kong and the rest of the world are somewhat preoccupied right now, it seems that some very interesting things (mostly to do with some very slick “in-out” arrests of various people) have also been happening here. Perfect cover? Pure coincidence? More from Steve. After 11.30 we’re off to visit our MB vet, Dr. David Gething. As usual these days, it’s our weekly wine class with JC Viens at 12.10. We wrap up at 12.40 with best selling author and broadcaster Paul French who joins us on the line from the UK with a fascinating tale of how a wartime artist drew America’s attention to China’s plight under the Japanese occupation in 1941.
