The AC360 411: Jodi Arias answers jurors' questions

Editor’s note: Tune in at 8 and 10 p.m. ET for all the latest twists and turns in the Jodi Arias trial from Randi Kaye, and analysis from Jeffrey Toobin, Nancy Grace, and Mark Geragos.

It’s a momentous day in the Jodi Arias trial. Arias is answering questions from the jurors - the men and women who will decide if she lives or dies for the 2008 death of her ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander. The questions were written on pieces of paper and given to Judge Sherry Stephens, who’s reading them to the defendant. The topics cover everything from her relationship with her parents to what happened the night she says she killed Alexander in self-defense. Here’s the AC360 411 break down of the trial:

  • 150+ questions submitted by Arias trial jurors
  • 18 jurors hearing evidence in Arizona vs. Jodi Arias
  • 6 jurors will be indentified as alternates after closing arguments
  • 11 male jurors
  • 7 female jurors FULL POST

AC361: Anderson answers your questions

Thanks to everyone who posted a question(s) on our Facebook and Google+ pages! Because of your brilliant curiosity, we learned more about Anderson's interests and got to the bottom of that "feud" with Wolf Blitzer. And yes, there was a fair amount of giggling involved in this interview. Watch the video we recorded a few weeks ago, hosted by 360 producer Jack Gray, and inspired by your submissions. Then, check out the recap:


Anderson's reaction to Jack's follow up question:

Hangout with Anderson! What do you want to ask?

We had so much fun during our last Hangout that we decided to spin it off into a semi-regular web series. Because, let’s be honest, there just aren’t enough ways for you to distract yourself on the Internet. We’re calling it the AC360° Afternoon Interruption.

Anderson will be joined by a rotation of CNN personalities for a 15 minute chat (or shorter if people start cursing and arguing, which we’re not ruling out). AC360° producer Jack Gray will moderate the discussion, which will include your questions – so post them here, Facebook, Google+ or tweet @AC360.

At 4 p.m. ET on Wednesday, September 26, Anderson and Jack will be joined by Dana Bash and Jeff Toobin. What do you want to ask them?

It’s going to be a departure from what you see on CNN. No news analysis, no politics. We want it to be a fun, relaxed show where your favorite CNN folks can let down their guard, kick back, and talk about everything from the crazy stuff that happened during the day to good books and movies to Wolf Blitzer’s new eyeglasses. You know, important things.

So submit your questions and interrupt your afternoon with us on Wednesday at 4 p.m. ET, right here on AC360.com.

Behind the scenes: Anderson's birthday surprise

When your boss is Anderson Cooper, what do you give him for his 45th birthday? Can you surprise a man who’s innately observant and passionate about finding the truth around him? Yes. If you’re sneaky and determined, then yes you can.

360 staffers Ben Finley and Devna Shukla worked with reality TV stars Ernie Brown, aka Turtleman, and Mauro Castano from “Cake Boss” to deliver a memorable birthday party live on-air.

There were a few close calls when the surprise was almost spoiled, but thanks to some quick thinking, fast door slams, and the speed (and grace) at which Ben can wheel an event cake, the plans were kept hush hush.

I’m taking you behind the scenes so you can get a taste of what happened before and after the birthday ambush. This is a web exclusive, everyone.

You may not get a sense for the distinctive smell of our reptilian guests, but you’ll see how they try to bite the hand that holds them (initials A.C.). Special thanks to Turtleman for bringing the two snapping turtles, one weighing in at 50 lbs., and for teaching us that his “yiyiyi” call is more than just a gimmick – it makes his “soul feel better.”

Anderson’s birthday surprise

It’s tough for our staff to surprise Anderson for his birthday. First, he knows it’s coming. And, he’s traveled the world, met the most fascinating people and lives a pretty exciting life.

We had to beat last year’s dog and pony show. One idea jumped out at us: Turtleman. And Cake Boss. Together. Check out a few behind-the-scenes pictures and come back to the blog for more on Monday!

See what happened during the show when Ernie and Mauro delivered their birthday gifts. After you watch, wish Anderson a Happy Birthday on twitter @AndersonCooper!
