Ben Mezrich is the author of Bringing Down The House, The Accidental Billionaires, and the brand new book The Antisocial Network. Anyone who follows this podcast will know that I have been writing my own book on the GameStop Saga, so before I spoke to Ben and read his book I was a little nervous that he may have beaten me to the punch. Thankfully his book is written like a thriller designed for adaptation to a movie, it’s prose is gripping and packed full of interesting tidbits and great information. This book focuses on what we in the community have come to know as the baby squeeze (or January squeeze). I asked about DFV, whether he believes the shorts have covered, and if he thinks the story is truly over.
