Dave Matthews: Hope Is Taking Action and Inspiring Those Around You
Dave Matthews and Dr. Jane Goodall’s kindred passion for wildlife and shared dedication to the planet has forged a close friendship between the two icons. In this intimate conversation, Dave talks about his childhood split between South Africa and the U.S. and explains how his scientist father and early experiences inspired much of his appreciation for nature and wildlife. Now an internationally acclaimed musician for over two decades, Dave uses his platform to spread awareness for environmental and conservation issues and to support organizations creating powerful impact, including the Jane Goodall Institute. The vibrancy and passion of their conversation is sparked by many difficult questions including: What are some of the biggest challenges we face in saving life on Earth and what can we each do about it?

Jane Goodall: You Are Reason for Hope
In the premiere episode of the Hopecast, Dr. Jane Goodall records from her childhood home in Bournemouth, England, where her journey of curiosity and passion for the natural world began. This is the first time Jane has been in one place for longer than two weeks in nearly three decades, and the urgency to share her message is greater than ever. In a fireside style chat, Jane shares intimate stories from her childhood, including how growing up during World War II taught her to take nothing for granted, and why she believes hope is essential to fuel positive action, individually and together, for a better world. While Jane doesn’t shy away from the adversity we face - the Sixth Great Extinction and the Climate Crisis in particular - she shares the importance and power of making space for hope, as it spurs the indomitable human spirit to take action, even in the most grim situations. Now through the Jane Goodall Hopecast, she will share stories of hope and resilience, encouraging listeners to embrace the power of every individual to make a difference for people, other animals, and the rich tapestry of life with whom we share this precious planetary home.
At the End of the Rainbow: Stay to the end of the episode to hear a rare archival clip of Jane speaking at the 'Understanding Chimpanzees' conference in Chicago, Illinois, in 1986, which was the catalyst moment that transformed Jane from a scientist to activist.
