David Wolinsky is an internationally published writer, critic, and the co-author of a book from The Onion's A.V. Club, the straight journalism side of one of the nation's biggest and most respected satire publications. He's also part of the management editorial teams at NBC Chicago and adultswim.com and has nabbed all these positions without taking a single journalism class. His degree is in music business from Middle Tennessee State, which is why he also thinks anyone who wants to write for a living can, if they're determined enough. He's also working on another book, writing a handful of scripts (including an hour-long pilot about 9/11), and co-hosting the iTunes-featured "new and noteworthy" podcast Snackerdoodle! about made-up junk foods. In between all that, he freelances for publications as far-flung as Wired and Maxim to Funny or Die and Topless Robot. You can follow David on Twitter @davidwolinsky.
