“As Musk was dealing with fallout from the Unsworth attack and his short-lived effort to take Tesla private, [Juleanna] Glover and Musk exchanged more emails about arranging an on-the-record media interview to clear the air.
“‘We just need to kill this nonsense speculation around your mental state,’ Glover wrote. They arranged for Musk to go on a popular podcast hosted by Joe Rogan, a California-based comedian.
“Glover advised Musk to decide in advance what he would say if Rogan asked about the Securities and Exchange Commission’s securities-fraud lawsuit, which Musk later settled. If Unsworth came up during the interview, Glover advised Musk to say that he had ‘gotten into enough trouble on that already’ and wouldn’t say anything more.”
