"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?"

All Good Things [Episode 9]
Charlotte presents the new evidence to Devin, convinced of what it proves. Though he is not, that does not sway Charlotte’s opinions. She realizes that this story was not about time travel, it was about understanding where we are today: an intersection of data, human capabilities, and technology that has the chance to change the world. As fate has it, Charlotte is granted one final interview with Jack. They have a chance to clear the air and discuss what comes next. Jack’s work isn’t done; he was able to leave a surprise behind for Charlotte, only to be uncovered by her own storytelling.
Renaissance Claims [Episode 8]
Armed with evidence of Jack’s adoption, Charlotte drives back up to Michigan to confront Sheriff Audrey Finney. The Sheriff comes clean and explains how she came to find Jack in the woods and the curiosities that arose as she raised him. She explains Jack’s mental instabilities that followed him from youth into adulthood, and hands Charlotte evidence in support of his time travel claims. This conversation changes Charlotte’s perspective and she begins to worry, was she too harsh on Jack when they last spoke? Will she ever see him again?
Present Compatible [Episode 7]
Charlotte introduces her listeners to famous Charlatan’s from history, insinuating that Jack’s lies slotted him into that category. She confronts Jack in an angry phone call disclosing what Sheriff Finney had explained. When she regains her cool and attempts to reach back out, Jack is nowhere to be found. Not even Matthew knows where or how to reach him. Devin calls Charlotte with new information, and she realizes that Jack may not have been the person who was lying about the past after all. Devin has found adoption records from the 90’s. It seems Sheriff Finney wasn’t Jack’s biological mother.

"This is such a fun adventure! It´s about history, timetravel and science, but it´s also a story of an interesting man and a quest to find out who he really is. Charlotte as the investigative podcaster is believable, relatable and well acted. I really enjoyed this show."

"This was commissioned by tech companies SAP and Column 5 as part of their marketing strategy, and so it pitches a rather utopian view of information technology, drawing parallels between the current digital age and the Renaissance period. My cynicism aside, it's a fun ride as Warburton tries to figure out if she can trust this guy whom she finds herself strongly drawn to. Also, I did a double take when I realized that Nicole Pacent was the actress."
