Meltdown is a zine made by Ben "Ditch" Taylor from Northern Calif.
The first issue was originally titled Social Meltdown but the name was shorten by the second issue. The content early on had coffee inspired stories and insight, touching on both politics and personal topics. The zine is also tied to the Bay Area Punk music scene. Much of the layout, headlines and text is done by hand from the editor Ben Ditch. Five issues have been printed. By 2013 Ben contemplates making a new issue with the original "Social" in the name.
