Mailbag: From China to California, Jane Answers Hopecaster Messages About Perseverance and the Indomitable Human Spirit
Play • 17 min

For this Mailbag episode, Dr. Goodall is joined by Hopecaster and podcast executive producer Michelle Khouri as they hear from Hopecasters from around the world. Jane and Michelle listen to a heartwarming and encouraging call from an 8-year-old Hopecaster in China who shares her dream of being an astronaut, and whose love of animals and nature was inspired by Jane. In another message, a courageous young Hopecaster shares her difficult journey of immigration from Iran to the U.S. and her ongoing difficulties with this issue, and tells Jane that her reason for hope comes from the story of the anemone, a beautiful, delicate flower that grows in the most inhospitable areas. Jane shares with this Hopecaster that this flower is like the indomitable human spirit “that enables us to have hope, even in the darkest times.”
