Listen - Sage and Savant, Episode 110: The Accidental Tourist, Sage and Savant have grown complacent with their travels, taking the miracle of transmigration for granted, the doorways to other times and places as a given. The universe has a way of humbling those that do not show proper regard for these things.

Listen - Sage and Savant, Episode 111: A Far Future Universe, Being forced to dress for dinner has a rather deleterious effect on our Doctor’s sense of caution. Is it that her corset is too tight? The rustling silk of her skirts too heavy? The kid leather of her gloves to constricting? Whatever the cause, the result is a champagne-fueled flight into the far future under the shadow of the mysterious Charges du Faire.

Listen - Sage and Savant, Episode 112 part 1: Wracked and Ruin, Dr Sage intends on only taking a short trip, traveling specifically to a war-torn period of time to help ensure her demise. What she ends up facing is horrors beyond her imagining. Abigail says, “human actions in extremis are worthy of study,” but these memories may be more than Dr Sage can swallow.

Listen - Sage and Savant, Episode 112 part 2: Wracked and Ruin, From the treacherous sea to the hard sands of the desert, Professor Savant faces his own trials as he makes his way back to civilization.

Listen - Sage and Savant, Episode 201: The Prodigal Professor, Professor Savant remains in the desert, but will he survive?

The Charges d’ affairs is pleased with Dr Sage’s progress, but are aware that additional steps will need to be taken to ensure her ‘research’ remains undetected.
