#190 - Elon Musk makes an offer

18 mins | Apr 18, 2022

Today's episode from 18th April 2022. Elon Musk has made an offer of over $40-billion to buy Twitter. We'll be looking at this potential hostile takeover, his criticism of Twitter's free speech policy and how this is the latest example of his defiance of customary business norms. Then later, whilst it is Easter Monday it's also the middle of Ramadan. We explore how fasting can give you a "high" and have a "powerful" impact on the brain. As his wealth grows and power solidifies, Twitter analysts predict a potential quarrel with the world’s richest man. For The Wall Street Journal, Salvador Rodriguez and Tim Higgins discuss how Elon Musk could emerge as unshackled wild card for company. There’s a well-established link between fasting and religious enlightenment, as documented through history. But the real reason behind this could be neurochemical, as Mary Elizabeth Williams learns for Salon. Wake up with Curio is a different kind of morning show that gives you the context behind the news and gets you motivated for the day ahead, every Monday - Friday.
