Monday to Friday 9.30am - 1pm
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. It’s Friday on Morning Brew, and after 10 we have five more great ‘made-in-Hong Kong’ tracks for you. Mark Rawson is busy today, but he’s very kindly prepared this week’s songs. Do send us any of your work that is simply bursting for some radio play. At 11.10 Danny Hicks is back with this week's 'Sports and All'. Today is all about the Champions League final, F1, and women’s golf. He interviewed the US Open champion Yuka Saso the other day, so we’ll have that as well. And then, after 12, James Marsh will be keeping the high pressure art of sitting, watching a film, and saying something about it… down to standard. Join him, and Danny, on Facebook live.
