Welcome to Fryday on Morning Brew. You may have started hearing "that bird" over the past few days. The really noisey one who whistles at you at this time of the year. He's actually called the Asian Koel, and only kicks off when the yearly humidity blanket decends. Actually, if you can spot him you'll see he has blood red eyes, but his call denotes your clothes growing furry coats of their own, and your food going floppy and "off". So, today after 10, Chef Neil Tomes will tell you how to combat the slime in your kitchen, and he'll likely be halfway through baking some sourdough as well. After 11 it's Sports and All with Danny Hicks. Join him for football, cricket, and F1. And, after 12 we're off to the movies with critic James Marsh. Join us on Facebook live, throughout.
Good morning and welcome to Tuesday. On Morning Brew today we welcome RTL France’s man in Hong Kong, Philippe Dova, at 10.10. Tomorrow is budget day so he’s with us this morning instead. Not a lot is known about the inner workings of The Vatican, including the fact that it has its own radio station. Philippe files stories for them, and today he’ll be chatting with Marie Duhamel from Radio Vatican, who will tell us the station’s story. After 10.30 it’s all things Aussie, including some great Down Under tracks, with Jarrod Watt. At 11.10 Dr. Merrin Pearse brings us another mini nature doco. This week: Jellyfish, with John Terenzini from the Hong Kong Jellyfish Project, a citizen science based project to record jellyfish sightings. There are actually lots of different varieties in Hong Kong, and if you join us on Facebook live you can see a few. After 12 we’re off to Melbourne to catch up with biz futurist Morris Miselowski. Tomorrow being budget day, we thought we’d talk about the future of money and payment.
