Online video creator Dylan Marron calls some of the folks who wrote him hateful messages to ask one simple question: why? The results are sometimes awkward, often political, and always fascinating. In new episodes starting April 2nd, Dylan will moderate conversations between people who exchanged their own negative messages online.

I want it!
From the teaser alone, I can tell that this is going to be a wonderful podcast full of people working through internet hate and maybe getting better for it, or at least realizing that we're all human :)
(Plus, I really love Dylan Marron's voice ever since I first heard him in Welcome to Night Vale)
I'm so excited about this!
Keep it up Dylan. I remember the first video you did, chatting with someone who sent you an aggressive, angry message. I'm looking forward to seeing the productive conversations that come from this ~ LaToya from SheNomads
Oh, I Am So Ready For This!
Boy, is it time!
