Episode Notes

Human interactions take place almost every day and sometimes they provide unique lessons. What would you do if an apparently down-on-his-luck stranger asked you for help?

Saki was the pen name of British author Hector Hugh Munro. Munro is renowned for his short stories with a twist and has been favorably compared with American author O. Henry.

Munro was 43 when he was killed by a sniper’s bullet in France during World War One.

His nom de plume, Saki was taken from a character in an ancient Persian book.
