In this episode, the Margos discuss the Ben Mezrich book "The Accidental Billionaire" that was published in 2001 and compare it to the 2010 classic film directed by David Fincher (our third Fincher adaptation!)
There is SO much to uncover here between what the world was like when Facebook was created, the state it was in at the time of the film's release in 2010 and how the world uses Facebook now.
Trigger warning--we may get a little political here! :)
