Ginny Tonic

I am a Cincinnati native and proud of it. Bourbon is my drink of choice and where I geek out the most but I honestly enjoy all aspects of drinking. The way it brings people together, the way it combines art, science, and culture, the way a nice drink at the end of the day can make the world seem so much better than it did a few minutes before. I am curious about the world around me, read avidly, and love a good heated discussion. When I’m not podcasting I write for Bourbon & Banter and occasionally other outlets. I am also the Southern Ohio Sales Manager for Middle West Spirits and a tour guide for New Riff Distilling. You can follow me on twitter via @ginnytoniccincy and on Instagram via @ginnyntonic.


I grew up in southern Ohio. I owned seven comic shops called Chuck’s Comics in the ’80s. I moved to Lexington, KY in 1988. I ran WRFL 88.1 FM and did an alternative music show in the ’90s. I traveled and did press work for the unlimited hydroplane racing series in the ’00s. In 2004, I started Comic Related. In 2008, I started podcasting doing 300 episodes of the Related Recap podcast for Comic Related. In late 2011, I moved to Cincinnati, OH putting on small conventions and music events. In 2012, I began co-hosting the Charlie Tonic Hour podcast which has produced over 300 episodes to date. That same year I purchased Derby City Comic Con. In 2013, I began working with Tonic Tours and put on my first full comic convention eventually spawning a second spin-off event. In 2015, I sold the show, closed Comic Related and quieted down my life for a couple years helping a company called CompleteSet. In 2016 I joined friends in a new adventure projecting wonder as an event manager for Gorilla Cinema, The Overlook Lodge, The Video Archive and, in time, Tokyo Kitty. What’s next? Only time will tell but I promise it will be a fun ride. Just you wait and see! Follow me twitter, Instagram and almost all other forms of social media via @charlierambles.
