Book Vs. Movie Podcast

“The Social Network”

Which version of Zuckerberg is the real one? 

The Margos are back to regular episodes!

In this episode they discuss the Ben Mezrich book “The Accidental Billionaire” that was published in 2009 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! 🙂

In this episode they discuss:

  • The interesting non-writing life of author Ben Mezrich
  • The true importance of Harvard clubs
  • Mark Zuckerberg’s multiple lawsuits
  • The amazing cast in the film
  • The music of Trent Reznor
  • How Facebook has changed over the years.
  • The BIG differences between book, movie and real life
