This was on Tuesday’s show but I watched it on Hulu last night. Anyways, Elon Musk is billionaire genius spaceship builder who wants to inspire mankind to innovate. No Big Deal. One of his goals is to make humans a multi-planetary species, but he does have selfish motives for that: he wants to retire on Mars.

The whole thing is great, but part 3 touches on health care and is really quite special.
