Welcome to Fryday on Morning Brew. Today after 10 Chef Big Mick Van Warmelo will be back in our virtual kitchen (ok, dump of a studio) with the antidote to all your fungal cravings, as we talk mushrooms 'n' stuff. Join us on Facebook Live with your comments and questions. At 11.40 we meet superstar piano duo Alessio Bax and Lucille Chung who are here with a host of world class players as part of the 10th anniversary celebrations of PPHK, the organisers of the Hong Kong International Chamber Music Festival. No movie reviews today, as James Marsh is on tour at a festival in the states. But he will tell us what's happening there . (9:30am-1pm, email firstname.lastname@example.org )
On Morning Brew today we head down under with Aussie correspondent Digger Watt at 10.10. Today East Timor celebrates its first election without the need for peacekeepers - but did you know their independence movement in 1999 was fueled by a couple of Aussie punks singing songs in the East Timorese language? Today is also the International Day for Elimination of Racial Discrimination - or Harmony Day - so the Australian Government will be debating whether it should remove race hate laws. In other news the immigration minister is outraged that CEOs from Australia’s largest corporations have publicly stated the Government should get on with it and legalise same sex marriage. We've lent Dr. Merrin Pearse to Backchat today, so he'll be back with us next week. After 11, all the latest from the world of cricket with CEO of Cricket HK, Tim Cutler. At 11.40 today, we meet a guy who's one of the handful of virtuoso musicians who DIDN'T throw away his school recorder at the age of 11. Quite the opposite for Piers Adams, who's in town this week as soloist with the City Chamber Orchestra of Hong Kong. After 12, Business Futurist Morris Miselowski joins us on the line from Melbourne to talk about the future of banking, especially at the customer level. (9:30am-1pm, ,email email@example.com )
