Welcome to Tuesday on Morning Brew. After a Covid-inspired break from proceedings, Jarrod Watt has risen, and he will be back with us this morning, live from Melbourne. In the words of a random Australian wag, “we are not here to… erm, ‘associate romantically’ with spiders!”. Wise words indeed, as today he’ll be talking about some very nasty ones that are set to invade Sydney homes. That at 10.40, plus all the rest of the Aussie news that’s fit to broadcast, and three great new tracks. At 11.40 Dr. Merrin Pearse will be with us once again, live from Wellington, New Zealand. Today he’s joined by Shaun Martin, who runs the Hong Kong end of the wonderful City Nature Challenge. After 12 it's back to Melbourne to meet up with biz futurist Morris Miselowski. The English travel industry pioneer Thomas Cook organised his first package tour today in...1841. Incredible, since most of us probably didn't realise he actually existed, much less in the mid 19th century. Morris will be talking about all sorts things to do with the future of holidays and travel today.
Welcome to Tuesday on Morning Brew. Ahead of a huge week Down Under, Jarrod Watt will bring you this week's Aussieness at 10.10, with more great tracks and his pick of the news. At 11.40 Dr. Merrin Pearse will be live from New Zealand, discussing how art can help share environmental messages. He'll be joined by Michelle Fung, an artist who works on an environmental art project set in the year 2084. Join them on Facebook live. At 12.10 we're off to Melbourne to talk with biz futurist Morris Miselowski. Kind of carrying on from last week, Morris will talk about 'synbio', or synthetic biology, which is his current muse. It sounds amazing, but needless to say there are many 'cons', as it can involve things like embryo editing, and use in bioweaponry. Once again... horrible humans!
