Play • 46 min

Today marks the one-year anniversary of GameStop climaxing at its stock price all-time high. New York Times Best Selling Author Ben Mezrich went to some of the alleged heroes and villains behind this saga with an important question: “what really drove this merry bunch of self-proclaimed apes to take on – and take down – Wall Street"?

Hear Ben’s Views On: 

  • Recognizing how the GameStop short squeeze marked the start of a revolution. 
  • Fixated on the idea of rational markets, what some Wall Street investors still fail to see.
  • Following up with the WallStreetBets crowd: where are they now?
  • Introducing The Ben Mezrich NFT Project: GameStop, Billionaires and Bitcoin, and Vegas. 
  • Accepting that we are entering the metaverse, like it or not.  
  • Separating successes from scams in the age of crypto.  

Check out Ben’s latest book, The Midnight Ride, available at bookstores on 2/22/22.
