The questions. Answers here.

1. Do you think you have the ability to put yourselves in the mindset of someone who’s black in this country? I understand that each of you isn’t black, but you seem like smart progressive writers so do you try to truly empathize with the plight of black America when you talk about it? Do you feel like your work suffers if you can’t?
– Alice

2. Twitter says they’re going to do more to stop trolls after what happened to Robin Williams’ daughter. Do you think anything can be done at this point or is internet ugliness just beyond anyone’s control? How do you personally deal with trolls?
– Kristy

3. What’s the big announcement?
