Welcome to Tuesday on Morning Brew. Firstly today we’ll find out all about “HKFC Rugby to Hanoi”. It’s a virtual fund raising drive initiated by the club’s mini section, but one star adult player has decided to match their 869km goal by actually running and biking to Vietnam. How does it all work? We’ll find out from the man himself, John McCormick-Houston, at 10.10. After 10.30 Jarrod Watt will be back with all the latest from Down Under, plus music from King Stingray, Chris Wilson and Horns of Leroy. Dr. Merrin Pearse joins us at 11:10 to talk about stag beetles in Hong Kong with Calvin Leung, an enthusiast who has been studying them as part of his Masters degree. And after 12, some more biz futurism with Morris Miselowski. Today: Cracking down on robo-calls, and more great click-bait about Elon Musk selling... your thoughts.

James Ross in for Phil this week and next, and this morning we find out about the citywide clap which is planned for tonight at 8pm. The event by the Hong Kong Community Foundation mirrors similar claps around the world, including the UK, as we salute heroes who've been working tirelessly to keep Hong Kong safe during the coronavirus crisis. Sally Lo is the founder of the Hong Kong Cancer Fund, which is supporting the event, and she'll tell us more at 10.15. After 11 we'll have the final part of Music of My Life with LEEE JOHN of 80's supergroup Imagination, and his music choices, and then after 11.30 author Christopher Dillon joins us to talk about the state of the property market here. Chris is the author of the "Landed" series of books about property, such as Landed Hong Kong and Landed Japan. After 12 James Marsh is on the show with our Friday movie and streaming extravaganza, and today he's focused on Tiger King and Freud.
