Episode Info:

Looking at academics in their ivory tower, ordinary people often find them something between eccentric and deranged. As one who viewed them from the inside, I don't totally disagree with that view. The two short stories you will find here in fact reinforce it. The first involves a professor who believes he is the modern day version of Henry VIII. He meets another professor who believes she is the reincarnation of Anne Boleyn. Based on the history of these two, it doesn't sound like a good idea for them to get together, does it? Well, to find out just how bad an idea it was, listen to the story.

The bonus story is about an Englishman who became a professor at an American university and has gone for a vacation on the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. Here this very civilized man encounters something very primitive and doesn't cope with it very well. Incidentally, beyond Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn, both stories are based on real people I've met.

This second episode is comprised of two short stories. The first one is called Living History and bonus story is called Surviving Moriori.
