During the roughly 2½-hour podcast based in Los Angeles, Rogan zeroed in on Musk’s seemingly limitless energy for projects, including digging a tunnel under Los Angeles to ease congestion on freeways.
“When I watch you doing all these things, I’m like how does this m———– have all this time and all this energy and all these ideas, and then people just let him do these things?” Rogan asked.
“Because I’m an alien,” Musk replied.
Musk, however, revealed his human side when asked by Rogan what keeps him up at night.
“Well, it’s quite hard to run companies, especially car companies. SpaceX is no walk in the park, but it’s very difficult to keep a car company alive,” Musk said, referring to the private aerospace manufacturer and space transportation services company he founded in 2002.”
At one point Rogan even convinced Elon to smoke a joint with him.
“Is that a joint? Or is it a cigar?” Musk asked Rogan before being told it was a cigarette containing marijuana, which is legal in California, and tobacco.
Asked whether he had tried it before, the entrepreneur said: “Yeah, I think I tried one once.”
“You probably can’t because of stockholders,” Rogan said, to which Musk retorted: “I mean it’s legal, right?”
