Author Ben Mezrich Talks Gamestop Short Squeeze and Day Trading in the Age of Reddit

Ben Mezrich, author of The Antisocial Network: The Gamestop Short Squeeze and the Ragtag Group of Amateur Traders That Brought Wall Street to Its Knees, joined Cheddar to discuss his new book, which details the Gamestop/Reddit day trading saga at the height of the pandemic.
