"Leonardo da Vinci. A master of his time. A timeless icon. But everything we thought we knew about him is being called into question. A mysterious scholar has emerged, surfacing eerily specific accounts of the great master's life. He claims that he's from the Italian Renaissance, that he was ‒ and is ‒ a long-time pupil and good friend of Leonardo himself. He says we are living in a Digital Renaissance. He claims that he's traveled to this time using blockchain, IoT, and other technology. Searching for Salai is the first fiction podcast brought to you by SAP, thanks to the new Digital Renaissance. Are you ready for it?"

I need more ASAP!
I binged the entire season in a day because I HAD to know how this story would end. This podcast is a very creative and fun take on the renaissance and time travel but also more surprisingly it is produced by the tech company, SAP. Listening to this podcast you would never guessed it was a technology company but it was so addicting and humorous. How they integrate time travel and technology in such a relevant way was very interesting to listen to and I can’t wait for the next season!
I really appreciate what SAP is working to accomplish with this podcast. The idea of reaching out to people through stories is a fundamentally sound one, and the format is excellent. It captured the sort of old-timey radio drama that inspired it, but it doesn't feel outdated. That said, I thought in execution this was a little wordy and has some "show, don't tell" issues, but I'd happily listen to more of its kind.
Push play! Definitely worth a listen.
Honestly wasn’t sure what to expect since I’ve never listened to a podcast that was like a story, but this was super enjoyable! A little bit of a slow start, but as the narrator started to get hooked, so did I. I binged it in a day lol. And I think the best part about it is you’re never really sure of anything, which was nice since it wasn’t predictable. I don’t want to spoil anything, but I thought the ending was handled in a way that worked perfectly. Always satisfying when a good story wraps up well! Overall, a solid listen with high quality production and a great ending.
