Richard Fidler is taking his gift for storytelling back in time. He has traipsed through Istanbul uncovering legendary Constantinople with his son, and journeyed to the sites of the beautiful and bloody Icelandic sagas with his friend Kári Gíslason. Now he takes the UWRF stage to talk about his love of history and travel, and the stories where the two meet.

Richard Fidler memilih untuk bercerita kembali mengenai masa lalu. Ia telah berjalan di Istanbul menjelajahi Konstantinopel yang legendaris bersama anak lelakinya, dan melakukan perjalanan ke situs-situs Islandia yang indah dan bersejarah kelam bersama temannya Kári Gíslason. Sekarang ia hadir dalam panggung UWRF untuk berbincang tentang kecintaannya pada sejarah dan perjalanan, dan kisah-kisah di mana keduanya bertemu.
