We introduced a new segment on The Justin Brady Show on Saturday, called “Letters To Elon.” Every week, I’ll write a new letter to Elon Musk about how impressed and proud I am of his accomplishments and I’ll post them all to this page along with the audio segments. I’m a huge Elon Musk, Tesla and Space X fan.
I’ll just keep doing this until I get Elon Musk for an interview, get a cease and desists letter, or I sacrifice all my pride and become a laughing stock.

Letters To Elon, 1st Edition (4/27/19)
In case you didn’t know, Musk recently came to an agreement with the SEC on his Twitter usage, and in the same week, he launched full autonomous capability in Tesla cars, with the added goal of allowing Tesla owners to have their cars rideshare autonomously, picking up passengers while they aren’t using their car.
He’s been mocked by so-called “automation experts” for his ambitious goals, which is not unusual for him. “Experts” have been constantly telling Musk he can’t do things. He does them anyway. Because he certainly has his haters out there, hopefully, this will lift his spirits. The letter reads as follows:
Congratulations on launching the full autonomous capability on your Tesla electric cars. I’m so proud of what you have been able to achieve. I realize it’s been hard work and people haven’t been easy to work with, especially those horrid SEC folks, and those holier than thou automation experts, but… they’re just jealous. I’m writing to let you know we are proud, and we are pulling for you.
PS: Can you come to Des Moines for an interview? Ok-thanks.

Letters To Elon, 2nd Edition (5/4/19)
This weeks letter reads:
I hear you are asking your friends for money to keep Tesla growing strong. I know you’ve taken a lot of flack for this, but I believe it’s a decision that had to be done, and I’m proud you exhibited the confidence to make it. I hope others will see what I see in you, and give you the money you need to make your company big and strong. I’ve included $5 to help out. Please don’t spend it on candy.
PS – Can you come to DSM for an interview? Thanks

Letters To Elon, 3rd Edition (5/11/19)
This weeks letter reads:
Dear Elon, I heard that you are finally down to working 80 hours a week instead of previously working 100 hours per week. I’m really concerned about your health after working so much and I hope you are getting rest and eating enough. I support you, and hope your workload will taper off soon in the very near future.
PS – Can you come to DSM for an interview, I’ll even book you a quiet hotel room for a night of sleep? Thanks

Letters To Elon, 4th Edition (5/18/19)
This weeks letter to Elon reads:
Dear Elon, it sounds like unless you make some drastic changes, Tesla will be out of money in 10 months. You should be encouraged to know I don’t believe that will happen. You are a go-getter, you made the worlds first practical electric car, the fastest production car on the market and I know you will find a way to press on. BTW, Is there any way you can retrieve that Tesla Roadster you launched into space? It would look nice in my garage.
PS – Can you come to DSM for an interview in 10 months?

Letters To Elon, 5th Edition (5/25/19)
This weeks letter to Elon reads.
I must say I’m impressed by Tesla being on track to surpass your vehicle delivery record of 90,700, which was just set in the fourth quarter of 2018. It looks like you’re on track to make the most Tesla cars you ever have in a quarter and I encourage you to keep pushing! Also, I am excited to see you get close to your goal of making 1000 model 3 cars per day and am looking forward to a record quarter.
PS – Should you awkwardly make 1001 cars per day, I am more than happy to take one so you can hit that an even number. You can bring it up to Des Moines when you visit for your interview with me. Thanks

Letters To Elon, 6th Edition (6/1/19)
This week’s letter to Elon reads:
I’m so glad tours of your facility are once again available to your loyal fans and customers. Hopefully, in the very near future, I can come down and check it out for myself. It would also be nice to build that Iron Man Suit that some Twitter users have requested.
PS – Can you fly iron man style to Des Moines for your interview? At top speed, it would likely only take about an hour to get here. Ok Thanks

Letters To Elon, 7th Edition (6/8/19)
This weeks letter to Elon reads:
I’m blown away by your plans for the electric pickup truck. The 400 to 500 miles range is impressive and I’m also stoked about the Dual Motor All-wheel-drive powertrain with dynamic suspension. The 300,000 lbs of towing capacity is sheer madness. Best of all, I think you can really use it to haul, and get rid of, all the BS the gasoline truck people will throw at you.
PS – When you come to Des Moines for an interview, can you bring one with you? We can take it to an Iowa farm and put it to a real test.
