Welcome to the 181st episode of the Inc. Uncensored podcast, hosted by Inc. senior writer Christine Lagorio-Chafkin.

This week, Inc.'s editors and writers talk about the increasingly complicated dance social media companies are performing when it comes to dealing with hate speech and conspiracy theories on their sites. San Francisco bureau chief Jeff Bercovici discusses the latest lines being drawn--and how users are navigating them. That's also the subject of his first column in a new series on Inc.com. Check it out--it's called Command Shift.

Also: With the resignation of Pepsi CEO Indra Nooyi, what's the state of female leadership at America's largest companies? Editor-at-large Maria Aspan takes a look at the numbers and proposes some not-so-far-out solutions.

Finally: After a calm week for Elon Musk, one tweet changed everything. The Tesla CEO claimed he's interested in taking his company private, causing commotion on Wall Street and in Silicon Valley. And as staff writer Kevin Ryan explains, it does not appear to have been a joke.

As always, you can listen to individual episodes of the Inc. Uncensored podcast on the Panoply Network or on Apple Podcasts, where you can also subscribe.
