Ryan Smith

I am the Reader's social media editor. Previously, I was a freelance journalist, critic, and writer for the Onion A.V. Club and RedEye. My work has appeared in The Guardian, PopMatters, and other quality print and online publications. I'm a jack-of-all-trades who has written about everything from politics, sports, books, music, transportation, and video games. I was once a crime reporter at a daily newspaper and a minor character in a true-crime novel, and I've been teargassed in a French labor riot, but I've yet to be shot at.
