Good morning and welcome to Monday. At 10.10 Morning Brew’s week begins, as usual, with Robbie McRobbie’s medium level rugby report. At 10.40 we’ll catch up with columnist, author, and New York correspondent, Tracy Quan. At 11.40 we welcome classical guitar virtuoso Xuefei Yang back to the The Brew. She’s in Hong Kong again for a recital, tomorrow night, of Spanish, Chinese, and Latin music. At 12.40 we’ll return to Tai Tam Country Park to catch up with adventurer Paul Niel and the team from Project Avenger. As their hunt for the remains of a downed Second World War American plane draws to a close, we’ll see what they have uncovered since we spoke last week.
Welcome to Monday on Morning Brew. Robbie McRobbie will get things rolling at 10.10 with his weekly rugby update. After that, New York correspondent Tracy Quan will join us from The Big Apple for this week’s news, books, and that shocking Hollywood mishap a few days ago. After 11.30 we’ll catch up with the Westbound Rower, Erden Eruc. He’s now ten days and five hundred miles out of Hawaii after a little stop-over, continuing his solo journey to Hong Kong. Join him, and Ocean Recovery Alliance's Doug Woodring, who is running the Hong Kong end of the project. At 12.40 our man in Vietnam, Neil Runcieman, will be with us live from Ho Chi Minh City. Neil, Erden, and Doug will be on Facebook live.
