Some podcasts featuring Ben Mezrich - listen if you are interested in writing, Hollywood scripts, entrepreneurship, start ups, bitcoin, the Winklevii, Facebook, Zuckerberg, Vegas!

Then buy and read the books!


Brief biography

Ben Mezrich seems a fascinating character; he's the writer of the books Bringing Down: The Inside Story of Six MIT Students Who Took Vegas for Millions which became the movie 21 with Kevin Spacey and Laurence Fishburne and, of course, The Accidental Billionaires: The Founding of Facebook, A Tale of Sex, Money, Genius, and Betrayal, which became, yeah, you guessed it, the Social Network.

Last year a kind of follow up was released, Bitcoin Billionaires: A True Story of Genius, Betrayal, and Redemption. Don't know if there are any movie making plans for this one but wouldn't surprise me!

So he's been the guest on numerous podcasts which are fascinating listens, simply for the story, or maybe you're interested in the writing process, gambling, start ups, entrepreneurship and, of course, bitcoin.
