Organisers Ed Bean and Michael Denmark will join us to tell us more, along with Paul Thompson from The Red Stripes who'll also be playing. After 10.30 our occasional columnist Neil Newman will be examining some alternatives to the much-discussed Lantau Tomorrow project. After 11 Sports and All with Danny Hicks, and a focus today on Football and F1. After 11.30 we look at the ever-growing Hong Kong Coffee Culture - writer Jen Paolini from Localiiz has been tracking how independent coffee shops are popping up literally everywhere! We round it all off with Marsh at the Movies, and today James looks at Seobok, Stray, Love & Monsters, and Night in Paradise. (9:30am-1pm, email firstname.lastname@example.org and Facebook)
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.
