This podcast is a labor of love in many aspects. For those of you who don’t know, the writer Eddie Louise and I (Chip Michael) are married and been together for a long time. We started Sage and Savant as a way to do something creatively together. Next month’s episode, Of Trainwrecks and Heartaches, is a nod to Valentine’s Day–a chance to explore romance. Again, for those who don’t know us, we are enthusiastically romantic. While we don’t need a specific day to show affection for each other, we aren’t going to pass up on a chance to be particularly mushy. Without giving away too much, the upcoming episode is a fine example of that.

These days, her focus is on speculative fiction, aka fantasy and science fiction.

Donna Glee Williams”
At the age of sixteen, the Dreamer has given up her own life to act as the conduit for the divine dreams that must be interpreted for the survival of the village. Love and relationships are forbidden. Even though her needs are provided for, she longs to be free. The cost of being the Dreamer is not just freedom. When her dreams begin to wane beneath the weight of duty, she is to be killed, quietly replaced by the next Dreamer. Hers is a fate that is kept as quiet as the sacred Garden that is her prison and her place of dreams; guarded night and day against the wayward trill of even the most well-meaning songbird.

Every year we do a special episode as a live performance. This year Sage and Savant travel to the San Francisco Earthquake. While many of our episodes are science fiction with bits of history tossed in, we want to cover as much about the earthquake as possible (in a 30 minute show). So, our live show this year is filled with pieces drawn from historical accounts.
Here are the resources we used to detail the events of April 18, 1906.
