Catch it live:
Monday to Friday 9.30am - 1pm
Welcome to Friday on Morning Brew. Producer and musician Mark Rawson will be back with us at 10.10, as we continue to feature and talk about music created over the last couple of years by Hong Kong’s wonderfully talented singers and artists. At 11.10 it’s this week’s serving (geddit?) of ‘Sports and All’ with Danny Hicks. Danny is knee deep in reporting the Australian Open for AFP today, so we may or may not be able to unleash him on Facebook live. And, after 12 it’s Marshy Movie Time, or at least it would be if the cinemas were open. Narshy Netflix Time?! He'll be reviewing new streaming releases The Tender Bar, Copshop, Peacemaker, Brazen, and Archive 81. Join James on Facebook live as usual, with your impeccable insight. (9:30am-1pm, email firstname.lastname@example.org and Facebook).
Welcome to Morning Brew. It’s Friday, and today at 10.10 we’ll have another chat with Singapore based urban designer and architect Jacky Cheng from JERDE. Last time we discussed ‘place making’, a way of repurposing old buildings and giving them a ‘place’ in modern society. Today, another design quandary brought about by COVID; how to design shopping areas based on recent human inclination. In short, human habits have changed, and people like Jacky have no choice but to accommodate them. But how? At 11.10 it’s the sporting highlight of the week you didn’t know you needed. Danny Hicks will be with us for another ‘Sports and All’. And, after 12 we’re off to the movies once again for Marshy Movie Time, with reviews of House of Gucci, Tick Tick Boom, Encanto, and The Beatles: Get Back. Join James, Danny, and Jacky on Facebook live.
