@HannahCranston Hey Hannah, thanks for joining us! Curious how you first got involved with @TheYoungTurks, and what did you and @jiadarola do to celebrate when reaching 1 million YouTube subscribers on Think Tank? (wow) 👏👏
Hannah Cranston
Hannah Cranston@hannahcranston · Hannah Cranston
@nivo0o0 I actually started at TYT as an intern and eventually transitioned into my role as host and EP of ThinkTank in January of 2015...we just celebrated our 1 million subscriber mark a little over a year later with champagne and a big party at YouTube Space LA!

Hey Hannah, big fan of TYT. It's been fascinating (and very concerning) to see the role that media is playing in the presidential election. What effects do you think this presidential election will have on the media industry?
Hannah Cranston
Hannah Cranston@hannahcranston · Hannah Cranston
@dleesta Depending on the outcome of this election... freedom of speech and net neutrality could greatly affect the media industry.

Hey Hannah, I have two questions/suggestions. Firstly have you considered a possible ThinkTank integration with SnapChat?. Second question, what do you think of the idea of having a ThinkTank post game show, so members can get to know you and John a little more. It doesn't have to be called a post game show but the idea is for members to learn from your day-to-day experiences. I would like to end by reminding you, that your work on ThinkTank & TYTLive has made an impact on me, but also on a global audience which is so so important. You create a discussion on various issues, and I find myself constantly looking at things from a different point of view, which i love. Unfortunately sometimes people are caught up in a bubble, they simply don't consider looking at things differently. So your show helps alleviate that and I greatly appreciate your input, so thank you Hannah Cranston.

Johan Jigsved@johanjig
@major_moody Agree with you, but what i found most interesting is when "fan bases" turn into communities. Whould LOVE to see some kind of effort towards that. Matt Lieberman as an exmple had an amazing "fan comunity" for as long as he regulary put up videos on his personal channel.
Hannah Cranston
Hannah Cranston@hannahcranston · Hannah Cranston
@major_moody Wow thanks for the kind words!! Just put a smile on my face :) And I'm glad you brought that up!!! John and I will actually be doing Facebook Live videos on facebook.com/thinktankfeed every single day, for BTS sneak peeks and to show what we do when we're not in front of the camera...ironically we'll be doing that, in front of a camera.
Mahmood Abdul
Mahmood Abdul@major_moody · Pharmacologist
@hannahcranston Well Hannah, if i can put a smile on your face just once, it's worth it, considering all the countless times you have on ThinkTank. I'll be tuning into facebook.com/thinktankfeed to see you and John do your thang 😂 ✌

Hey @HannahCranston! Big fan! I would love to know your take on where you see platforms like Snapchat coming into the video entertainment world. Are you a fan/user? Do you see it being heavily implemented in any of your series? 😊
Hannah Cranston
Hannah Cranston@hannahcranston · Hannah Cranston
@as_austin Hey! Thanks! I enjoy Snapchat... (han.cran) and use it sporadically. I think Facebook and it's new live video feature is the future of video though and see ThinkTank and myself using that a lot more.

Hannah Cranston

Hannah Cranston
Hannah Cranston@hannahcranston · Hannah Cranston
@ems_hodge The best advice I've ever gotten is to do things that scare you... if your dreams don't scare you, they're not big enough. The worst advice I've ever gotten is that "good things come to those who wait"....WRONG!!! good things come to those who WORK.

Adam Philip@adammphilip · Content Creator
Hey Hannah, love thinktank, especially when it's you and John, the guests are great but it's not the same without both of you. The other stuff you've both been doing on TYT has been really good too, you'll be running the show before long! I saw your tip about being authentic which is really good advice, what would be your number 1 tip for gaining an audience for content that is important to you?
Hannah Cranston
Hannah Cranston@hannahcranston · Hannah Cranston
@adammphilip Be passionate about it. Your love for what you're talking about will come through on camera and people will get excited about it and want to watch just because you're so into it.

Alex Nagy
Alex Nagy@alex_nagy
Hey Hannah! :D How many times did you switch majors before finally settling things the way they are now?
Hannah Cranston
Hannah Cranston@hannahcranston · Hannah Cranston
@alex_nagy 3X!! I was a bio major, then an education major, and then finally a psych major.
Alex Nagy
Alex Nagy@alex_nagy
@hannahcranston Looks like not everything is lost then... One more question: does your major have anything to do with your current job? No offense, I'm just curious how much my degree determines my future, and I don't rly know what a psych. degree means, or what they do :D
Hannah Cranston
Hannah Cranston@hannahcranston · Hannah Cranston
@alex_nagy Psych stands for psychology. So I think a basic understanding of how the human mind works and how humans interact is important for my job as a PERSON and also as the host of ThinkTank. But I don't think majors necessarily dictate the job you will eventually have.
Alex Nagy
Alex Nagy@alex_nagy
@hannahcranston Thank you for your answers! :D You said once in a video, not knowing what to do about the age of 18-20 happens to most of us, and things would eventually work out. So for the time being, I'll try to stop worrying about the future, and start hoping you were right :P ;)

soo... this might be super corny to say but i started watching think tank with you and john way before i ever got into the young turks and so i've become quite the fan... actually i'd go as far as admitting that for the past year i've been crushing on ya :) ANYWAYS my question is this, i've been known to procrastinate so so much and i know you've been pretty good bout staying active and motivated to achieve your goals, my question is how do you do it?! why is it when i know i gotta do something i push it off almost automatically. Not only are ya beautiful and a success in your field but it shows, organization and preparedness, idk just gimme some advice for getting off my ass lmao
Hannah Cranston
Hannah Cranston@hannahcranston · Hannah Cranston
@ezequiel_canizalez Aw thank you!! Make a to-do list...I find that when things are on paper, I feel more compelled to get them done so that I can cross them off. Also, create incentives for yourself, I won't allow myself to watch TV or relax, until I finish everything that I have to do for that day.
Johan Jigsved
Johan Jigsved@johanjig
Maybe i shouldn't come with a topic suggestion for think tank here, but something with long and short perspective and some kind of video with that topic, would in my opinion fit the show? Ethier how media is 99% short term, or just a general comparison.
