Monday to Friday 9.30am - 1pm
Welcome to Friday on Morning Brew. Today is officially the first day of the Summer Olympics, so at 9.40 Danny Hicks will join us live from Tokyo for the first of what will be his daily Morning Brew reports. These games will not be fading from memory anytime soon, but let’s hope it’s more for what happens “on the field” rather than anything else. Danny will be bringing you the latest throughout. After 12 we’re off to the movies with our MB critic James Marsh. As always you can join in with Marshy Movie Time on Facebook live.
Good morning and welcome to Tuesday. On Morning Brew today we welcome RTL France’s man in Hong Kong, Philippe Dova, at 10.10. Tomorrow is budget day so he’s with us this morning instead. Not a lot is known about the inner workings of The Vatican, including the fact that it has its own radio station. Philippe files stories for them, and today he’ll be chatting with Marie Duhamel from Radio Vatican, who will tell us the station’s story. After 10.30 it’s all things Aussie, including some great Down Under tracks, with Jarrod Watt. At 11.10 Dr. Merrin Pearse brings us another mini nature doco. This week: Jellyfish, with John Terenzini from the Hong Kong Jellyfish Project, a citizen science based project to record jellyfish sightings. There are actually lots of different varieties in Hong Kong, and if you join us on Facebook live you can see a few. After 12 we’re off to Melbourne to catch up with biz futurist Morris Miselowski. Tomorrow being budget day, we thought we’d talk about the future of money and payment.
