Catch it live:
Monday to Friday 9.30am - 1pm
Welcome to Monday on Morning Brew. At 10.10 today Phil’s joined by the CEO of HK Rugby, Robbie McRobbie, for his weekly report. It’s not good news, as you probably know. After 10.40, NYC correspondent Tracy Quan is back with news of her week in The Big Apple. As the issue of statues, why they are there, and what they have come to represent, gets even more complex, at 11.10 we welcome much published architectural historian Francis Morrone. Francis will talk on the line from New York, where he also teaches at New York University. At 12.10 our man in Switzerland joins us. Neil Runcieman will be on Facebook live from Lucerne to talk about how his country of residence is reacting to a possible “2.0”.
Welcome to Friday on Morning Brew. For a little change today, no chefs. Instead at 10.10 we’ll meet runner Rob Naylor, who’s going to run around the very flat Peak loop, and then do it again, and again...oh, and again, until he’s clocked up 100km. Rob has done some gruelling top-end runs in his time, but he doesn’t mind the boredom of this one, as he’s raising money for a wonderful cause. He’ll explain all. After 11 Danny Hicks will be with us for this week’s Sports and All. He’ll be joining us on Facebook live (via video) with news of the gradual resumption of sport, including Aussie rugby league and golf’s European Tour. At 11.40 today, the final part of James Ross’ mini-series “Music of My Life”, featuring Steve Norman from Spandau Ballet. At 12.10 we’re off to the movies with MB critic James Marsh. Join us on Facebook live throughout. (9:30am-1pm, email firstname.lastname@example.org and Facebook)
