Heard Lena Headey (aka Cersei) made $1 million per episode this season, drinking wine while staring out of a window. In light of that, please consider this as my audition for the next GOT spin-off. I’m very versatile and can drink wine in many different scenarios and locations. Have your people contact my people, HBO. In all seriousness, last week was city-burning-down-in-flames sh*tty for women, so don’t forget to take care of yourself, talk about your emotions, and oh yeah, donate to @plannedparenthood and @yellowfund.

Early Life, Education, and Online Beginnings
Hannah grew up with a younger sister in Los Angeles, though apart from that, very little has been shared about her family. The reasons for her later pursuing an online career isn’t known, but likely influenced by her childhood experiences; according to her, she developed a love for the sciences at a young age and had a relatively normal childhood, being a part of a middle class family.
She didn’t initially envision a career online, as she was very interested in the ocean and marine life. She wanted to become a marine biologist an focuses on a study of the ocean and all living organisms within, and is one of the largest fields in science considering the vast expanse of the oceans along with the numerous resources contained within. After matriculating from high school, she then moved to Durham, North Carolina and enrolled at Duke University. However, she didn’t pursue a course in marine biology, instead opting for a course in Psychology with a minor in Economics. During her time in the university, she started gaining experience through working on YouTube content, which began her road towards her eventual online career.
Prior to completing her education, Cranston started working for the YouTube channel called The Young Turks, which would become her regular job after school. She mainly did hosting work, but was also responsible for production duties with the company. The Young Turks is a news program based on the platform YouTube, which would later find success and evolve into a multi-channel network called TYT. The company is known to take an anti-establishment stance, and its popularity has also led it to deals with digital cable networks.
In 2010, a subsidiary channel was created called TYT University which was created to focus on university life and a university audience. She began working as an intern for TYT University before being promoted to a host alongside John Iadarola. However, the offshoot channel eventually figured that staying within the realms of university life limited their scope, and wanting to expand their reach more, they became the channel ThinkTank. Hannah became a fulltime co-host of the channel, and also an executive producer. Thanks to her contributions and the rebranding of the channel, it experienced a sharp rise in subscriptions.
Thanks to ThinkTank’s association with The Young Turks, Hannah eventually found her way towards the main channel, doing production work for them as well as for other subsidiaries of the network. She’s guest hosted shows such as “TYT Sports” and “The Point” while also making guest appearances in “What The Flick?”, primarily centered on the film industry. She also became known for her work on the lifestyle and fashion channel of TYT called “Stylogue”.
Aside from her YouTube experiences, she started expanding her reach as well to other platforms; she began working with “The Huffington Post”, and became a regular contributor to the online publication. She’s become known as a writer who’s very critical of the Trump presidency, which in turn would lead her to be invited onto television, making her debut as a host of the FOX TV program entitled “Top 30”, intended as a test, with her hosting alongside Kevin Moezzi and Cynthia Luciette.
In 2018, as a part of budget cuts and layoffs, the Young Turks removed a lot of their current staff in favor of hiring more employees and expanding their network. Hannah was not spared and was also laid off. Since then, she’s moved to podcasting, hosting the program “Too Much to Handle”.
