Diatribe Media is an independent cooperative based out of Chicago. Since 2003, we’ve featured and created content in forms ranging from zines to panel discussions and podcasts highlighting independent voices and interests.
Diatribe Media is primarily Aaron Cynic and Natalie Solidarity today, but has also partnered with several other people in other efforts, including Kate Sandler and Billy Roberts of Loop Distro. In addition, we’ve featured several fantastic writers. If you want to be one of them, check out the Submissions page. For a full list of past contributors, please check out the Contributors section.
Aaron produces zines called Diatribe and This Is The End and also contributes to the Chicagoist. Kate writes The Black Lake, a fanzine devoted to Harry Potter as well as Brainiac Zine. Both Aaron and Kate were involved in the creation of ZineWiki, the most comprehensive living encyclopedia of zines. Billy Roberts writes a zine called Proof I Exist and formerly ran Loop Distro.
