    Getting Stoned with Om Crystals

    Getting Stoned with Om Crystals

    In this episode of Getting Stoned, I interviewed Nikita and Moji, a married couple who moved from Houston to San Diego to embark on a new life. They got into the crystal business and have had quite the adventure. The two bought their first Tesla with crystal sales, have had a child, and are awaiting their third Tesla. 

    We talked about crystals, the business and the stones, Elon Musk and my recent interview with him, Tesla, and more.

    Getting Stoned: Interview With Elon Musk

    Getting Stoned: Interview With Elon Musk

    This is a uniquely special episode where I was invited down to Giga Texas to interview Elon Musk. I don't think we need an introduction, here--we all know who he is. 

    The audio was edited by one of my best friends, Hart Deer (lead singer of Soulfire, an Atlanta-based rock group) and @TeslaHerbert 

    Elon opened the fudge I'd brought him from Bucc-ees, and a few horns honked in the background as we were in a factory. So I apologize in 

    Elon invited me to come back since I didn't get to ask all of my questions--he was incredibly focused on working in the factory and I'm grateful for the time he took with me. So there will, eventually, be a Part 2 to this episode. 

    In this episode, we talk about:

    SpaceX and the light of consciousness, Starlink and helping with disasters, his work with the Musk Foundation, the declining birthrate and the role poverty plays in it, one critical solution that would lift people out of poverty, Tesla, Tesla's new justice and legal department, Tesla Energy and the work it's doing in Texas to help the grid and we also touched upon AI.

    Getting Stoned: The Tesla Ring

    Getting Stoned: The Tesla Ring

    Today I have a special guest, Davit Kvitsiani, Founder & CEO of CNICK, a company that makes jewelry tech that can unlock car doors and more.

    Davit has some neat announcements including an NFT, a new bracelet as well as what I’ve heard of, the Tesla Ring. In this episode, Davit shares what inspired him to create the ring and how the Tesla community helped him with feedback and support.

    You don’t have to be a Tesla owner to have the ring as it is used for many things other than locking or unlocking a Tesla.

    The Baton Rouge Gem and Mineral Society held a fun gem and mineral show at the Blue Bonnet Nature Reserve. The theme was 'Rockin in the Swamp.' I went and had a blast, added gems and minerals to my collection, and bought some for my small jewelry business.

    Getting Stoned: My New Troll

    This episode is a shout-out to Tiff Trolls. I bought a troll from her and love how she used crystals in her creations. She’s also helping the environment by upcycling old trolls and making them into art. Note, I mistakenly said her Etsy in the audio but I have her website in the links below.
