Good morning and welcome to Tuesday on Morning Brew. It’s our Aussie day of the week again, which will be kicked off in style with our in house fangin’ hoon, Jarrod Watt. He’ll have all this week’s news from Down Under plus some great Australian tunes. At 11.40, a little later than normal, Dr. Merrin Pearse will be talking with Cesar Jung-Harada, who is the artist researcher behind ‘The Ocean Imagineer’, a floating oyster hatchery and solar hydrogen production plant in North Point. After 12 biz futurist Morris Miselowski joins us live from Melbourne. Today we have a little on the future of transport, as it’s the anniversary of the opening of the Erie Canal, and the launch of Pan American Airlines. Oh, and a hyper-sonic space plane called “Sexbomb”. Also he wants to mention the post COVID ‘employment churn’.
James Ross in with a holiday version of the show, and we'll kick off with a look at some of the things going on around town today, and over the weekend. Vicky Huffey from Sassy Hong Kong will join us to make some suggestions as to what we can do. After 11 it's our regular Thursday morning date with Morning Brew vet Dr David Gething, and we'll talk about the effect of thunderstorms on our pets plus your animal questions... pls post them here or email firstname.lastname@example.org. After 12 we'll preview the Horse Racing calendar ahead with William Nader, Director of Racing at the HKJC Hong Kong Jockey Club, and after 1 we'll look at the fast-growing revival of audio cassettes, with Nick Langford (photo), and play one or two of the new local releases out on that funny, forgotten, but somehow familiar audio format - the cassette. Plus the best in music until 2pm.
