    Welcome To History Worth Saving! Season 4 Preview

    HISTORY WORTH SAVING - Welcome to Season 4 of the HWS Podcast. Here's the story, and what's in store.
    Overview: Matt Jolley’s “History Worth Saving” tells great American stories. The premise is to introduce Americans to their neighbors, and reveal the incredible things folks are doing across the USA.
    Background: While living in the Middle East with his family (accompanying his wife on a military assignment) Matt read a Pew Research Study that said, now, more than ever, Americans don’t know their neighbors. “History Worth Saving” is his small part to reverse the trend.
    “We can’t be the United States of America if we’re not united, and we can’t be united if we don’t know and appreciate each other.” ~Matt Jolley
    Season 4 Episodes “Masters of Their Arts”
    This season focuses on Americans who have mastered their craft, and highlights their journey. Season 4 starts off with someone who’s made it and is now looking back, several stories of those with success, one who just received validation, one on the way, and finally, one deciding whether or not to jump.
    David Hartman - retired journalist living in Durham, North Carolina. During his career David was the first host of “Good Morning America” on ABC. Now he’s helping tell the stories of veterans.
    Dallen Lambson - wildlife artist and landscape painter living in Utah. Dallen has become one of the highest selling wildlife painters in America, and is now featured in Cabalas and Bass Pro Shops nationwide.
    Helene Bernhard Little - water color artist in Houston. Helene developed her popular style because of a medical condition during childhood, and today it’s been popularized by artists around the USA.
    Craig Tinder - Fortune 500 marketing executive, turned digital painter. Craig left the corporate life to pursue his passion as an artist, and now paints the stories of WWII as his full time job.
    Ernie LaPointe - Vietnam Veteran, Native American, and survivor of PTSD living in South Dakota. Through his suffering, Ernie rediscovered his Lakota culture and healing methods. In 2021, after a lengthy battle, Ernie proved through DNA testing that he’s the great grandson of Sitting Bull, and the last living direct blood relative. Today he’s working with anyone who will listen about personal healing.
    Chris Adams - naturalist living in the Okefenokee Swamp of Georgia. Still in his 20’s, Chris has devoted his life to preserving the ways of the pioneers, and redeveloping the abundant natural foods prevalent in the “forgotten frontier” of the Wire Grass Region.
    Mark Ware - musician who turned down a record deal at 30 to remain a firefighter. After the tragic death of his daughter, Mark is pursuing his music career and gaining traction with a manager in Nashville, and a tour. He’s once again faced with the challenge of leaving his stable career, now as a Fire Chief, or living the life of a country music singer-songwriter on the road.
