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 Friday on Morning Brew. At 10.10 producer Mark Rawson will be back with us for our weekly 'made in Hong Kong' music session. All the tracks in this half hour will be from local artists and bands. Today it’s mostly ‘covers’, and they’re excellent! At 11.10 AFP's Danny Hicks brings you more sports comment, and a look ahead to the weekend, in... 'Sports and All'. Today we’ve got tennis, as Wimbledon starts on Monday, with no Russians, no ranking points, but with Serena Williams and Rafa Nadal. Also, he’ll talk about Football, cricket, and a dramatic rescue at the World Swimming Championships. At 12.10 It’s Marshy Movie Time. Join critic James Marsh for this week’s on-screen hits and misses. Marshy, and Danny, will also be on Facebook live, where we’d love to hear from you in real time as well.
