Elon Musk above a fire pit, "We Roasted Elon Musk"

We Roasted Elon Musk, Raising the Curiosity of Thousands

We made it VERY clear that Musk’s worries about population collapse are ill-founded, and that attracted thousands more listeners than usual to our podcast. How did that happen? What kind of comments did we get? Find out in this episode. And get important truths about overshoot and overpopulation.


Elon Musk above a fire pit, "We Roasted Elon Musk" Plus, learn how we’ll give YOU the mic for an episode of the GrowthBusters podcast. We explain the long wait for this episode, and share our offer to listeners to “adopt” a future episode to discuss an aspect of limits to growth important to you.

 If you do want to guest-host an episode, email us your proposal. Include a paragraph or two about you, and a paragraph or two about your proposed topic, guest, approach, etc.

The GrowthBusters theme song was written and produced by Jake Fader and sung by Carlos Jones.

On the GrowthBusters podcast, we come to terms with the limits to growth, explore the joy of sustainable living, and provide a recovery program from our society’s growth addiction (economic/consumption and population). This podcast is part of the GrowthBusters project to raise awareness of overshoot and end our culture’s obsession with, and pursuit of, growth.

Dave Gardner directed the documentary GrowthBusters: Hooked on Growth, which Stanford Biologist Paul Ehrlich declared “could be the most important film ever made.” Co-host Stephanie Gardner has degrees in Environmental Studies and Environmental Law & Policy.

    Thank you for helping educate people about this man. Half of his “fame” comes from the greed of his stock holders. Them other half is media-driven, perhaps paid for. Certainly early on it was. I would also love a platform for a future podcast as possible guest or whatever. Been facing resource and growth issues since birth. As someone born into a family of too many kids, unable to afford another and before the onslaught of easy abortion as a way out. Being put up for adoption was the best thing I experienced at the time. But I see so many families wanting 5,6 or more kids. A lot of time, they can afford it but not all. Especially in emerging markets.
