Good morning and welcome to Monday. We’ll kick off Morning Brew at 10.10 with our weekly rugby report from Robbie McRobbie, the boss of HK Rugby. Our New York correspondent, columnist and best selling author, Tracy Quan will be with us at 10.40. At 11.40 we’ll find out how music is helping endangered wildlife species through a wonderful competition (ahead of Endangered Species Day next week) called “Voices for the Planet”. Dr. Ying Ying Liu, who heads the organisation Lumivoce, and is a fab singer herself, will be with us to tell you all about it. After 12, another visit to Ho Chi Minh City to catch up with MB’s Bureau Chief-at-large, Niel Runcieman. When we spoke a couple of weeks ago the authorities had just ramped their COVID restrictions back up to max. We’ll find out the latest today with Neil.

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.
