We’re the filmmakers behind “Breaking the News,” a documentary about the early days of The 19th, an independent, nonprofit newsroom reporting on gender, politics and policy. Ask us anything!

“Breaking The News” premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in 2023 and just had its national premiere on PBS last week, which is now free to stream on the Independent Lens Youtube channel via the PBS App.

The film, made independently by a crew of Emmy- and Academy Award-nominated directors and producers (Heather Courtney, Chelsea Hernandez, Princess A. Hairston and Diane Quon), follows the 19th team through the trials and tribulations of its early start-up days. It focuses on a few key members of our team, including co-founder and CEO Emily Ramshaw, LGBTQ+ reporter Kate Sosin, economy reporter Chabeli Carrazana and editor-at-large Errin Haines.

Ask us anything about the documentary and how it came together, our work, or anything else about “Breaking the News!”

I’m a Forbes reporter who wrote about the wealth of U.S. Supreme Court Justices. Ask me anything!

(I'm signing off for now. Thanks everyone for your questions. You can keep up with reporting on money in politics at forbes.com.)

I am Kyle Mullins, a reporter covering money in politics at u/forbes.

With the help of my colleague Zach Everson, we have estimated the wealth of each of the justices on the Supreme Court. You can find that reporting here on Forbes.com. What questions do you have?

Here’s how the nine justices stack up financially:

This reporting follows increased scrutiny of the high court after reports that some justices have taken lavish gifts, vacations and benefitted from real estate deals from people with business before the court, among other ethically questionable activities.

I am Wendy Wong, and I wrote a book about human rights in the digital age. Ask me anything!

Hello! I am Wendy Wong, Professor of Political Science and Principal's Research Chair at the University of British Columbia, Okanagan. I recently published We, the Data, a powerful case for putting human rights at the center of our public conversations about datafication, big data, and AI. Here's proof it's me! We live in a data-intensive world, so pervasive that to safeguard ourselves and our future, we must extend human rights beyond our physical selves. We need to become data stakeholders, to understand what it means to be a data source, how important this role is, and why, even in a sea of data sources, we don’t have to lose to powerful data collectors like Google, Amazon, Microsoft, Apple, and Meta. For a taste of what I cover in my book, here’s an excerpt on our digital afterlives. We, the Data was recently shortlisted for the Gelber Prize for the best book in international affairs written in English, and was included in the Journal of Democracy’s 2023 “Favorite Books” list.

Please feel free to ask me anything, including data collection and tracking; big data; data literacy; being a dog mom; balancing family life with work life; nonprofits and NGOs; and what it’s like have a career as an academic.

You can get the hardcover of We, the Data through your local bookstore or wherever books are sold!

THANKS ALL FOR YOUR THOUGHT-PROVOKING QUESTIONS. Signing off, for now!

IAmA Expedition Guide, primarily concentrating in Polar regions, AMA

As the headline states, I work as a guide mainly in Svalbard, Greenland and Antarctica. I work South America sometimes and I'll be working in the South Pacific this year, also. I'm on an expedition ship that has the ability to go through 1-2 year sea ice, which gives us some cool opportunities in polar regions. Most of my time, I'm driving a rubber Zodiac boat with guests. This can be cruising with interpretation, landing on a remote beach (or ice!), ect.

AMA!

In 2015, I built a wild treasure/scavenger hunt for my Reddit Secret Santa Giftee and created a business! Now I travel around the world building intricate scavenger hunts for clients! I’m The Architect! I'm back for another AMA!

I’m Chris! But I go by “The Architect!”

(Started off as a joke and now it’s on my business card)

Proof

I have a business called Constructed Adventures. People hire me to build out seemingly serendipitous perfect days and wild treasure/Scavenger hunts for special occasions.

It all started Accidentally and then completely blew up thanks to the Reddit Secret Santa holiday exchange (RIP). After the first one in 2015, I proceeded to fly out to my giftee’s location every December to send them on an Adventure. Here they are:

2015 - The Royal Scotsman 2016 - The Great Sock Adventure 2017 - The Wolf and the Owl go Bird Hunting 2018 - The Archer Princess and the Cactus pin 2019 - The Queen of the Norse 2020 - The Tavern Restored 2021 - The Arbiter of Benevolence 2022 - The Regal Rumble; Return of the Scotsman

(Note: 2022 was the first year that Reddit didn’t have secret santa. But since I’d run 99 Adventures up to that point, it felt natural that Adventure 100 would be for the original giftee. I Reached out to his wife and hatched a plan!

Let me help you build a fun Adventure for a loved one. I can also steer you in the right direction to make sure you avoid many of the common mistakes. If you hop over to my subreddit r/ConstructedAdventures you can see some of the awesome Adventures that others have created! There’s also a great Discord community dedicated to the puzzly side of things! (Not all Adventures need puzzles, but they can certainly add some depth!)

Here is my starting guide to building an Adventure

Feel free to ask me about how to build an Adventure yourself, business-y things, travel-y things, awesome moments, big mishaps, and anything in between!

As tradition, I promise to answer every single question.
