In honor of the 24th anniversary of Microcosm, we solicited true stories from people who have known founder and publisher Joe Biel from the company's teenage beginnings to the present day. A touching tribute and document of a scrappy organization's evolution, from punk shows in Cleveland and long tours in packed, tiny cars to professional sales conferences and long meetings over iced teas. A slice of life, taken lengthwise through a long, storied, and still evolving career.
