Monday to Friday 9.30am - 1pm
Good morning and welcome to Thursday. At 11.10 today our friendly neighbourhood vet Dr. David Gething will be with us once again. Today he’ll talk about the “anatomy” of furry infections, and answer any pet questions you may have as well. At 11.40 New York Times best-selling author Paul French reads the fourth and final newly recorded story (especially for Morning Brew) from his latest book “Destination Peking”. Today: “The Man Who Dreamt Up The Shanghai Express”. It is nearly time for this year’s Adventure Clean-up Challenge. In fact, it begins next Saturday. As we told you last year, this is no ordinary spring clean. Participants need several fairly specialised skills. But this year those skills will be slightly different, as the 2021 edition deals with Hong Kong’s trails. At 12.10 organiser Sole Riestra will be with us for that last minute briefing, and invitation to take part. (9:30am-1pm, email firstname.lastname@example.org and Facebook)
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.
