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.
Good morning and welcome to Monday. The Morning Brew week starts at 10.10 with Robbie McRobbie’s executive rugby report. After that we’re off to New York to catch up with correspondent Tracy Quan. At 11.40, live from Mumbai, we'll meet Indian author, columnist, and editor, Amrita Shah. An authority on India’s media history, Amrita published 'Telly-Guillotined: How Television Changed India' in 2019. Her biography of Ahmedabad, India's seventh largest city, is regarded as essential reading for its insights into contemporary India. She was also founding editor of ELLE India, and that's the area we'll get into today; the future of the 'glossy mag'. And, at 12.10, author and former Marine Police commander Les Bird will be with us, live from Los Angeles, where he's currently on a book tour promoting his second very successful book, 'Along the Southern Boundary'. It documents, in great detail, his frontline experiences dealing with the Vietnamese boatpoeple who arrived in Hong Kong at the end of the Vietnam war. There's one very notable success story that came out of one of his 'meetings' back in the day, which he'll undoubtedly talk about today.
