This episode contains strong language.

Chana has traced the history of the school from its founding and come to the present. But now: One unexpected last chapter. Last year, the school district for BHS mandated a change in the zoning process to ensure all of middle schools will be racially integrated. No longer can white families hoard resources in a few select schools. Black and Latino parents have been demanding this change since the late 1950s. The courts have mandated it. Chana asks: How did this happen? And is this a blueprint for real, systemic change?

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: and get early access to episodes, bonus content and even free merch!
