Bestselling author and TheOnion.com founder Scott Dikkers' new book is a parody of Elon Musk’s imagined ambitions. “Welcome to the Future Which is Mine,” depicts a fictional-Musk’s dream to save the world — before leaving it entirely in favor of Mars.

Dikkers joins us to discuss his new book, his experience with TheOnion.com, and how to balance the offensive versus the funny when covering the news cycle.
