features editor, The Onion
Joe Garden is the features editor for *The Onion*. *The Onion* is a comedy publication founded by Tim Keck and Christopher Johnson in 1988 when the two were juniors at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. As it broke through to the mass market in 2000, Comedy Central approached it for a buyout that would take the satirical tabloid to New York City and broaden its reach into other forms of media–books, blogs, tweets, and now an iPhone app. In April 2007, The Onion launched “The Onion News Network,” a web video sendup of 24-hour TV news which won a Peabody award in 2009. *The Onion* is read by more than 3 million people a week in print and online.
