Tonight it is back to fundamentals.

Dr Jane Goodall has visited Adelaide this week and shared her story and her call to action for the world on behalf of her Jane Goodall Institute and Zoos SA.

We were there to capture some of the stirring moments of insight shared by the internationally-renowned primatologist about:

  • Her instinctive love for animals
  • Her initial work living with chimpanzees
  • Her struggles to be ‘heard’ by academia
  • Her empowering vision for all of us

We also commemorate 50 years to the day since The Beatles arrived in Adelaide and performed a sold out concert.

We talk with MC, Bob Francis, and delve into some lesser explored territory, and we chat with avid Beatles fan, Sandra Matz, who was not only there at the original concert but also at a commemorative concert held to mark a previous anniversary of the big event.

Douglas Adams, late author of The Hitchhikers’ Guide To The Galaxy, gets a nod, given this is episode 42.

That number is deified in the series as the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe and everything.

We have some warm follow up to our Janine Hardy story from episode 41, enjoy a blinded wine tasting and discover a softer side to local band, The Shambolics.

We uncover the rudeness of a certain Australia’s Got Talent semi finalist while egging on a local participant in The Voice.

Oh, and Adelaide newsreader and radio presenter, Jane Doyle, might be pleased to discover she has been dubbed an honorary Nigel for our podcasts, Nigel 6, thanks to her appearance in our Jane Goodall story.

Jane would you like a separate dressing room next time you appear on our show?

01:04:05 Stories from the street We received a contribution from Julie Shinnick about the Janine Hardy interview last week, using the audio recorder on our website. Steve also noted that Janine sent her thanks, saying: You’re a rare interviewer- you’ve done your research, asked great questions, relaxed the interviewee! That shouldn’t be a rare thing in a radio or tv host but it is! Every single person who has contacted me has commented on that fact. And that they learned a lot about my disease, about how the drug treats it etc, so I’m so thankful for the opportunity to be able to help people to understand.
I’ve heard nothing but positive reactions, I think you’ve gained some new listeners, myself included, you do a wonderful job.
Thank you again for giving me such a great opportunity,
