Elon Musk Talks on the ‘Getting Stoned’ Podcast: Tesla, SpaceX and More



Tesla, SpaceX CEO Elon Musk’s interview on an episode of Getting Stoned, a podcast hosted by CleanTechnica‘s Johnna Crider (@JohnnaCrider1), is available now. Crider conducted the interview with Musk last week at Tesla’s Gigafactory in Austin, Texas.

According to the episode’s synopsis, the pair talked about:

SpaceX and the light of consciousness, Starlink and helping with disasters, his work with the Musk Foundation, the declining birthrate and the role poverty plays in it, one critical solution that would lift people out of poverty, Tesla, Tesla’s new justice and legal department, Tesla Energy and the work it’s doing in Texas to help the grid and we also touched upon AI.

Crider expressed her respect for the relief Starlink, SpaceX’s satellite internet service, is able to help provide in disaster-stricken areas. What SpaceX has managed to achieve with Starlink in Ukraine since Russia invaded the country earlier this year is undoubtedly impressive.

Today, Starlink has more than 150,000 daily active users in Ukraine.

However, SpaceX has also deployed Starlink to several areas hit by natural disasters like hurricanes and volcanic eruptions, including Crider’s home state of Lousiana.

The globally declining birth rate is a problem Musk is particularly passionate about. He has touched upon the issue (and possible solutions) during several interviews and appearances, this one included.

This is also not the last we’ll see (hear, technically) of Musk with Crider. “Elon invited me to come back since I didn’t get to ask all of my questions,” Crider wrote on the Getting Stoned website. “There will, eventually, be a Part 2 to this episode.”

Getting Stoned is also available on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.
