Catch it live:
Monday to Friday 9.30am - 1pm
Good morning and welcome to Monday. The Morning Brew week starts at 10.10, as usual, with Robbie McRobbie’s high level rugby report. After that we’re off to New York to catch up with correspondent, author, and columnist Tracy Quan. She has more about the ongoing pro-choice protests happening in the States, some fashion oddness that’s caught her eye, and, some 'Gods Behaving Badly'. At 11.40 we’ll join Ocean Recovery Alliance’s Doug Woodring, live from San Francisco, as he prepares for this weekend’s ‘Rising Blood’ eclipse. This past weekend you may have seen some very creepy looking ‘ghost bikes’ around Hong Kong. These all-white, luminescent, and mostly wrecked objects which appeared by several roadsides were not an artistic statement. Much more than that. Transport writer and broadcaster James Ockenden will explain, at 12.10.
James Ross is in for Phil today on Morning Brew. We kick off after 10 by getting out on the trails. Our guests are Janet Ng and Steve Brammar, the co-founders of the Hong Kong 100 Ultra Marathon. Janet is also President of the ITRA - International Trail Running Association. This year's normal HKG100 has been cancelled, but there's a special version happening at the moment. We'll find out all about that. After 11.30 we've all things French with RTL France's Philippe Dova. And after 12 we dive into the world of property. Author Christopher Dillon who wrote the 'Landed' series of property books including 'Landed Hong Kong', 'Landed Japan', and so on, joins us to take a view on the market for 2022. All that and the best in music until 1pm.
