Diffuser's Senior Editor, Tim Karan is an award-winning journalist but far less decorated in all other aspects of life. Formerly associate editor of Alternative Press and web editor for Altpress.com, he's written for the A.V. Club, Newser, Bleacher Report, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle and more. He hosted the semi-popular 'AP&R Podcast' and was editorial director for several installments of the official program for the Vans Warped Tour. He's appeared on Fuse TV, done countless radio and podcast guest spots and has interviewed musicians from hundreds of bands ranging from the Doors and Green Day to Queens of the Stone Age and 30 Seconds to Mars. Only one (a Beastie Boy) ever hung up on him.
