Elon Musk: The Evening Rocket

Elon Musk: The Evening Rocket

Pushkin Industries and BBC Radio 4

Elon Musk's visions of the future all stem from the same place: the science-fiction he grew up on. To understand where Musk wants to take the rest of us - with his electric cars, his rockets to Mars, his meme stocks, and tunnels deep beneath the earth — Harvard professor and New Yorker writer Jill Lepore looks at those science fiction stories and helps us understand what Musk missed about them. The Evening Rocket explores Musk's strange new kind of extravagant, extreme capitalism — call it Muskism — where stock prices are driven by earnings, and also by fantasies. Follow along on Twitter @ElonMuskPodcast. From Pushkin Industries and BBC Radio 4. Pushkin Industries may use this feed in the future to debut new podcasts from our catalog. If you'd like to hear more from Jill Lepore, check out her podcast The Last Archive.

Sharing a preview from Car Show!, a new podcast from Pushkin. Longtime Car and Driver editor Eddie Alterman tells the stories of the vital cars—the ones that have changed how we drive and live, whose significance lies outside the scope of horsepower or miles per gallon. In this episode, Eddie investigates the Lunar Rover. Why did we send a car to the moon? How did we design something for an environment we knew nothing about? How did we get it up there? Plus, you’ll get a behind-the-scenes peek at GM’s current lunar rover project. You can find more episodes of Car Show! with Eddie Alterman at https://link.chtbl.com/eveningrocketcarshow.
