Thirty years after its Islamic revolution, Iran is still in flux: Its economy is hurting; the struggle between social and economic reforms and the status quo endures; and a new U.S. administration is rethinking its approach to the Middle East country.

Steve Inskeep, who is completing a series of reports about Iran, took your questions and chatted about what Iranians think about their country, the revolution and the United States.
