Speaker 1 (00:00):
I need you to have that report on my desk
by Friday, and would you carry my baby?

Speaker 2 (00:03):
It's one more thing.

Speaker 3 (00:05):
I'm strong, and one more thing I liked Katies better,
which is Elon Musk is a whore. Ah that's allegedly
in your opinion.

Speaker 1 (00:19):
Yeah, we'll get into Elon Musk's life here in just
a second, and some troubles. He might be having this
headline from The Babylon Bee that I thought was really good.
The Babylon Bee often just funny. Sometimes it's rueful. I
mean it's like making a serious point about something, but
you know it's also kind of humor at the same time.

Speaker 3 (00:37):
I like this one.

Speaker 1 (00:38):
Palestinian researchers discover startling correlation between holding hostages in your
home and people shooting you. It's got a graph.

Speaker 3 (00:48):
A line going this way for holding hostages in your.

Speaker 2 (00:51):
Home being shot.

Speaker 3 (00:55):
Wow, that is that is a dryly hilarious, a great
political point. You know, other than my wife and children,
I think the thing I love more than anything in
the world. And you know it's not surprising given my
line of work is humor as a persuasive tool, whether
it's H. L. Menkin Hunter Thompson, who I disagreed with

(01:18):
all the time, but he was hilarious, you know, John
Stuart Wayne John Stuart is heyday John Stewart. Yeah, even
when I disagree with him, the dude is hilarious and
moved minds. I just love that stuff so much.

Speaker 1 (01:31):
So Elon Musk, the richest man in the world has
eleven kids.

Speaker 4 (01:35):
Now with.

Speaker 1 (01:36):
Thirteen different women's right, I think nine different women anyway,
a lot of different women. And he's got some female
troubles right now. So one woman who was in consensual
relationship with and the power dynamic blah blah blah. I

(01:58):
don't know if that's a big deal or not. Then
you got one woman who says that he had asked
to bear his shh, he had asked her to bear
his children, which I don't know I worked that in
in conversation.

Speaker 3 (02:08):
But anyways, do you mean like to the park or
what do you mean?

Speaker 4 (02:13):
Could you clarify?

Speaker 1 (02:14):
I would like to impregnate you and then you carry
the child in your womba until delivered. Ah, thank you
for clearing that up, gotcha. But then this, and then
it's got the whole story here in the New York
Post actually quoting the Wall Street Journal. The mogul Elon
Musk also carried on a month long sexual relationship with
a third woman who reported to him directly at SpaceX

(02:35):
before the two cut ties. According to the report, the
third woman in Musk were involved romantically after she was
accused of having an affair with the husband of another
SpaceX executive.

Speaker 2 (02:45):
It was reported, I don't accused by who. I don't know.

Speaker 3 (02:51):
Musk first met Yes, Musk first. How many guys at
work are too many to be having sex with? I
would say anything north of one is probably not going
to be great for your rep.

Speaker 1 (03:05):
Well, it's funny, it's it's almost a pass fail thing.
One is pushing it. Two is clearly too many Yes
to being having sex with.

Speaker 2 (03:13):
At your current workplace.

Speaker 3 (03:14):
It's just greedy.

Speaker 2 (03:19):
For male or female. Yeah.

Speaker 1 (03:22):
One is it happens and it can be survived. Two
is probably really not good idea.

Speaker 3 (03:29):
Well, and I believe in strong, liberated women. But if
there's a woman across the hall who's like, hey, you
hear she's sleeping with Jenny's husband. Oh no, no, no,
that's over. She's sleeping with the boss. Now, I mean,
come on, everybody's the same thing.

Speaker 2 (03:45):
Kate the one woman on the staff. You need to
weigh in on this before I move on.

Speaker 4 (03:49):
Oh, I mean banging around at work is not going
to be good for your your luck.

Speaker 1 (03:54):
Banging around at work, is that Shakespeare?

Speaker 3 (03:57):
Yeah, to quote Santa Claus, ho ho home, that's beautiful.

Speaker 4 (04:03):
I also think, like, have you guys ever dated anybody
at work?

Speaker 3 (04:06):
Of course?

Speaker 1 (04:07):
Uh?

Speaker 3 (04:07):
Yeah? Have everyone broken up?

Speaker 4 (04:09):
Broken up while it was while you're still working together? No?

Speaker 1 (04:12):
I don't think so that's a blast horrid o.

Speaker 4 (04:16):
I dated a coworker when I was working at the
good old grocery store. We broke up and whoa were
those shifts not fun anymore?

Speaker 2 (04:23):
Wow? Yeah, I never had that experience.

Speaker 3 (04:25):
I still have oh no, oh no, oh no, chemicals
going through my brain right now. And this was before
you walk the earth, Katie, or at least you were
very small, you were rolling around in a cradle or something.
So elon.

Speaker 1 (04:41):
I mean, he'd be the ultimate power dynamic with anybody,
right as the richest man in the.

Speaker 2 (04:45):
World, tough to beat.

Speaker 3 (04:46):
Yeah.

Speaker 1 (04:48):
Musk first met the then intern in the early twenty
tens when she was a college student studying engineering.

Speaker 3 (04:55):
So he would wait a minute. Vladimir Putin or or NBS,
the leader out of Arabia. They probably have Elon Musk money.
And would you like to go out for drinks or
would you rather fall out window? Yeah, that's a power dynamic.
Back to Elon Musk, who doesn't push people out of windows.

(05:17):
According to the Journal, Musk in the World.

Speaker 1 (05:20):
According to the journal, Musk and the woman went out
for a meal after she sent him ideas about how
to improve the company. And that's a classic. She thinks, Oh,
my god, the world's richest man, the head of this company,
likes my ideas and wants to talk to me more
about it. He was thinking, you're hot. I'm going to
see if you'll go out to eat with me. And

(05:41):
she doesn't know that that's a that's a classic. But anyway,
Musk and the woman kissed after the two bonded over
their love of Star Wars, according to the report. A
year later, Musk arranged for the woman to be flown
to a resort in Sicily, where the two met. The
journal claim Musk was in Sicily attending a conference sponsored

(06:03):
by Google. That's a flex. Oh do you want to
go out to eat this Friday? I'm in the Bay
Area and you're in Sicily. I'll fly you here in
my jet.

Speaker 2 (06:13):
What are you talking about?

Speaker 4 (06:15):
Right?

Speaker 3 (06:15):
Yeah, come on out. Yeah, what do you like to
sip on? I'll have the pilot get it ready for you. Hello.

Speaker 1 (06:22):
The woman's it goes further as a flex. Actually, it's
probably not in a flex.

Speaker 3 (06:27):
He's so rich.

Speaker 2 (06:27):
It's just he just did it because it's convenient.

Speaker 1 (06:30):
The woman's passport was in another city, so Musk made
arrangements for a friend to bring it to her on
an early morning, different flight. Yeah, my passport's in another
country right now, that's fine, I'll send a plane to
go get it and.

Speaker 2 (06:44):
Bring it to you.

Speaker 3 (06:45):
You know, I'm gonna identify as a woman for the
next ninety seconds, which makes me a real woman according
to well lunatics. If I even like the guy some
I'm gonna have a hard time given that off.

Speaker 1 (07:00):
Oh yeah, in fact, unless I'm repulsed by him. Well
you tell us, Katie. But I'm thinking like it's a woman,
unless I'm just like eh, I don't think I could
do that.

Speaker 3 (07:09):
If I had to.

Speaker 1 (07:11):
You're gonna put me on a jet and take me
to Sicily?

Speaker 3 (07:14):
Okay, yeah, I could.

Speaker 4 (07:16):
I could see how that would look like a real
glamorous thing. But I'm with you, Like, if I'm repulsed
by the guy, I can't.

Speaker 3 (07:24):
Repulsive. Yeah, But the point is, you know, if you
have a like, you've what what what scale do we use?
If you're like a B minus into a guy C
being utter neutrality, or maybe you're a solid B into him,
You're never gonna marry him. You're not quote unquote in love.

(07:46):
But he's a nice guy and you enjoy and and
you know the sex isn't half bad. I don't. I
don't know what lifestyle anybody lives. I'm not here to judge.
But you're gonna stick with Elon Musk a hell of
a lot longer, and you're gonna stick with the assistant
manager of the crow store down the road or whatever.
All right, that is, that's fact. Yeah, the guy who
plays video games a lot. But it's looking really hard

(08:06):
for a job, right. All right, I'm back to being
a dude again. Let the conversation commence.

Speaker 2 (08:12):
Why these details are in this whole story?

Speaker 1 (08:13):
But the woman was bucked, booked on a first class
flight to London and then put on a private jet
to Italy. It was reported in twenty seventeen, Musk offered
the woman a role on his executive staff. Former SpaceX
staffers thought it was odd that someone so young, with
so little experience was offered such a high profile position
close to the boss.

Speaker 2 (08:34):
According to the report.

Speaker 3 (08:36):
On his staff, right, oh, Michael, well, I'll take a
moment to recover great dick jokes?

Speaker 1 (08:52):
Was it?

Speaker 2 (08:52):
Yeah? Thank you?

Speaker 1 (08:53):
Was the last ravage of scoundrels?

Speaker 3 (08:56):
No, that was classy and subtle. Admit it.

Speaker 1 (09:01):
I like the fact that the staffers thought it was
odd that someone so young was put in such a
high position. Really, you didn't pencil out the whole He
flew her to cicily, she's attractive thing.

Speaker 3 (09:14):
This is a real head scratch, he'd be. I can't
come up with a ah.

Speaker 1 (09:25):
After she moved to La from New York, the woman
accepted an invitation from Musk for drinks. Her friends told
the journal that Musk came on to her and touched
her breast. One of her friends said the woman recalled
Musk telling her, Oh, I'm so bad, I shouldn't be
doing this. Elon tried to now I'm quoting the woman.

(09:47):
Elon tried to rekindle our relationship prior to my employment
and I rejected the advance. While there was some initial awkwardness,
it was nothing out of the ordinary after a rejection.
What you were talking about, Katie, It's just a relationship
breaks up and it's going to be uncomfortable in no
matter what. That's what the woman is saying. She's not
claiming anything awful, the woman said in a sworn affidate
had provided to the Journal. According to the Journal, the

(10:07):
woman who denied ever having a romantic relationship with Musk
said she was unhappy at space. You know, one of
the problems with all these kind of stories is it's
not anybody's effing business on either end. It's perfectly okay
for two people to get it to get together for
whatever reason and do their thing and not tell people.

(10:28):
Yeah right, I mean absolutely, In fact, that's the decent
thing to do, unless there was some sort of crime committed.

Speaker 3 (10:34):
Yeah, I think we're back into the area of the
discussion though, that if you're putting the company at risk
and the shareholders at risk because of sexual behavior that
could bring down various consequences, well then that's the problem.

Speaker 1 (10:50):
So she died denied ever having a romantic relationship with
Elon said she was unhappy at SpaceX because she had
no authority, and she also had trouble getting other executives
to take her ideas seriously. That would be frustrating when
you realize nobody's actually listening to me. I don't have
any ability to do anything. I mean, I've got this
position because Elon was into me. Once I made it
clear to him, I'm not interested.

Speaker 2 (11:10):
Now what am I doing?

Speaker 1 (11:12):
The situation got so bad that on several occasions she
would hide in the bathroom on company grounds, The journal reported,
and the affidavit provided that the journal the woman said
her feelings about the job at SpaceX were completely unrelated
to any romantic or personal interaction with Elon Musk. I
came into a very difficult role as a newcomer with
an established company.

Speaker 2 (11:29):
She said.

Speaker 1 (11:32):
She would visit Musk at his home after the boss
frequently texted her. According to a friend come by, Musk
would text her. When she didn't respond, he would continue texting,
Look it's either me or six am exercise, he wrote
on one occasion. On another occasion, Musk texted, just finished
the Model three production call. It's definitely going to be
hell for several more months. Are you coming over? If not,
I will probably trank out too stressed to sleep.

Speaker 3 (11:53):
Naturally, Musk route wow when must text.

Speaker 1 (12:00):
When Musk's text went unanswered, he wrote, probably best if
we don't see each other.

Speaker 4 (12:04):
I can't handle rejection.

Speaker 1 (12:07):
H The next morning, the woman texted back to him, writing,
oh man, I'm sorry, I'd already fallen asleep. I've been
a late night person most of my life, but i'd
been trying to switch over because it seems responsible to
be honest. Sorry, I crashed last night. Later that same day,
the girl confided in a friend that she had mild
social anxiety resulting from imposter syndrome, which makes my job harder.

Speaker 2 (12:28):
I don't know.

Speaker 3 (12:30):
Why do I know any of this? I don't know.

Speaker 1 (12:32):
It doesn't sound like well like you said so if
I'm a stockholder, although I doubt it set back the
company in any way, he put in a nothing position.

Speaker 3 (12:46):
I don't know well, and he could settle for ten
million dollars and not notice it was gone, right.

Speaker 1 (12:51):
But so he flirted with her. He texted, come on by.
She didn't respond. You know, she didn't respond to his advances.
He got the message. At some point nothing happened I
don't know, seems kind of like a no harm, no
foul to me.

Speaker 2 (13:06):
What do you think?

Speaker 4 (13:07):
Well, I don't know. I'm thinking the whole I don't
think we should see each other anymore or talk anymore.
When she didn't respond at his first you know, his
text message, I think that that is kind of maybe
an intimidation tactic. I don't I don't really know.

Speaker 3 (13:24):
That was weird. Yeah, that was either as you commented,
his need to act like he was rejecting her, which
is a psychological foible for sure, or it was a
weird quasi thread. Yeah, I don't know. That's just o odd.

Speaker 2 (13:42):
Things are getting weird, getting weird fast.

Speaker 3 (13:44):
The elon let me let me interject here very briefly. Elon,
that's why sexual behavior is the you know, rules, regulations,
thoughts on, it is uh, presently every single religion, because
that a mankind has known since like Adam and Eve,

(14:05):
that this could get out of hand and get weird
really fast. Things are getting weird, and they're getting weird fast.
The whole sex thing and this, this is just that
playing out the awkwardness.

Speaker 1 (14:17):
Awkwardness with Musk eventually led her to leave Musk's executive staff,
She was reassigned to another role in which she reported
to another engineer, and when her manager was part of
mass layoffs, she left the company. In twenty thirteen, a
different woman who worked for SpaceX left the company and
then reappeared with a lawyer. She alleges that Elon had
asked her on several occasions to have his babies, which

(14:40):
is a big thing to do. That is a big ask.
After the woman declined, Musk's offer to have his children
in the relationship between the two deteriorated.

Speaker 4 (14:50):
But was he was he being serious?

Speaker 2 (14:54):
Hard to say?

Speaker 3 (14:55):
You know?

Speaker 4 (14:55):
I mean, I've I wasn't there. I've had guys joke
around with like, hey, ever, what I have? You know,
it's not I don't know. I guess it's how you
take it or how it's delivered.

Speaker 3 (15:05):
Well, given the number of women with which he has
had kids, I think you have to take that invitation seriously.

Speaker 4 (15:11):
And given their names, he needs to stop. Yeah, all
of these kids are doomed.

Speaker 1 (15:18):
I don't have any idea what's happening with Elan if
it's you know, something awful or not. But can you
imagine how difficult it would be to date as the
world richest man, or any celebrity really, but this world's
richest man. I mean, unless you are going to tell
somebody okay when you first meet them. There's a documentary
filmmaker filming us and listening to us right now, and

(15:39):
they will every second of our entire relationship.

Speaker 2 (15:41):
It's the only way I can protect myself.

Speaker 1 (15:43):
I mean, seriously, what would you do anytime you're alone
where you can't confirm the truth of something. Someone could
claim you did something and you're gonna.

Speaker 3 (15:54):
Have to pay them. Yeah, here's where we introduce our guest,
Trevor Bauer, the picture for the LEDs right, who was
framed up as being some sort of monster predator by
a gold digging evil seductress.

Speaker 1 (16:06):
Who is laying next to him in bed the next
morning and texting your friends about how what his salary was.
He's going to figure out how to get some of it. Yeah,
it would be really difficult to figure out how am
I possibly going to get myself into a doesn't ruin
my life situation here? Although he doesn't seem to, like
you said earlier, he doesn't seem to be real worried
about it.

Speaker 3 (16:27):
Yeah, he's gone with the Mick Jagger method of we're
together for a while, I knock you up, you have
a kid, I support you through the rest of your life,
and I get together with the kid now and again.

Speaker 1 (16:36):
Yeah, I don't dig that at all. No, those kids
would really like to have a regular dad.

Speaker 2 (16:40):
They really would.

Speaker 4 (16:40):
Elon, especially the one that's named x ash A twelve,
that one I feel really needs to dad around.

Speaker 2 (16:47):
Thanks for that.

Speaker 1 (16:49):
Of course, they probably don't make fun of you at
the two hundred thousand dollars year private kindergarten.

Speaker 2 (16:53):
You're going to go to.

Speaker 1 (17:00):
Join us next time when we tell the story of
William Buffett and his sexual harassment of Eva gabor Well,
I guess that's it.

Speaker 2 (17:10):
That was an age joke.
