Where does rain come from?

We fly up into a fluffy cumulus cloud with Ayesha Tandon, and learn about where clouds come from - and what they’re made from. The rhythm of the rain on the window leads us into our song of the week.

This episode is the fourth in our series Imagine Equity: Six New Stories About Race, Identity, and Making Things Right. ** This week in The Imagine Neighborhood™, Macho Supreme and Count Vacula are using their imaginations to turn a cardboard box into the spaceship from their favorite movie, Nebula Trek! But every time Vac tries to jump in and help Macho save the galaxy, Macho won’t let him play. ** Macho thinks that Vac can’t play as his favorite characters from Nebula Trek—because in the movie, those characters are white, and Vac is Asian. Scotty explains to Macho that he has excluded Vac, and that is not okay. To exclude means to leave someone out, or tell them they can’t play. ** When you exclude, you get stuck: the game is less fun, the story is less interesting, and people’s feelings are hurt. Instead, the kind thing to do is to use your imagination to make room in the story for everyone. Make it okay for everyone to play! ** If you want even more of The Imagine Neighborhood™, sign up for our newsletter. Each week, you’ll get additional discussion questions and activity ideas for kids and grown-ups. Keep sharing your ideas, drawings, and creations with us—we love seeing what you come up with, and you might see it featured on our Infinite Refrigerator! ** This show is supported by a generous grant from The Allstate Foundation.

22 - Leonardo da Vinci The Waiter, Chef & Party Planner
For many of history’s most famous characters, we all know, at the very least, the basics of what makes these men and women famous to begin with. And of history's most famous people, outside of religious figures, one of the most well known, revered and mysterious is the Renaissance Man himself, Leonardo Da Vinci. Today, we’re going to look at one of the lesser-known sides to a man most famous for his artistic works that include but are in no way limited to The Mona Lisa and the famous image of The Last Supper, which incidentally may have been inspired by one of the stories in today's episode. That’s right, today, we’re going to be looking at Leonardo Da Vinci, the waiter, chef and party planner. ------------------- Please support me on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/foodhistorypod and get early access to episodes, bonus content and even free merch!
