Snap Judgment

Snap Judgment is “a storytelling show with a beat…about decisions that change everything” according to host and executive producer, Glynn Washington. It’s not just the stories, it’s the way they’re told – that will keep you coming back. Each vignette is its own, wee performance, and each week, Snap Judgment focuses on a theme then takes listeners on a rollercoaster audio ride through real life stories. These are not your Grandmother’s tales of life!

Schedule:

Saturday 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM on WUSF 89.7

Glynn Washington

Before creating the Snap Judgment radio show, Glynn worked as an educator, diplomat, community activist, actor, political strategist, fist-shaker, mountain-hollerer, and foot stomper. Glynn composed music for the Kunst Stoff dance performances in San Francisco, rocked live spoken word poetry in Detroit, joined a band in Indonesia, wrote several screenplays, painted a daring series of self portraits, released a blues album, and thinks his stories are best served with cocktails.
