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.
