The Brilliant Minds Podcast

An intimate, fun talk with Kimbal and Maye Musk.

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.

This week we sit down with Maye and Kimbal Musk. The mother and son duo joined me in the Spotify Studio in Stockholm to talk about their shared passion to stop the epidemic of unhealthy food that threatens both humanity and the planet. They also give us a look into their journey from South Africa to Canada, from a poor working family to hard working entrepreneurs. Maye is not only the mother of three successful children but also a strong entrepreneur herself, working as a nutrition expert for over 45 years. Although working in the field, she hasn’t got the love of cooking, and this is where Kimbal has taken charge. From prepping dinner for the whole family, Kimbal is today the co-founder of The Kitchen – a restaurant business giving everyone in America the possibility to eat “real” food from local farms. Produced in collaboration with ABC Radio.
