Snap Judgment tells intriguing stories about extraordinary and defining events in people’s lives. The program’s raw, intimate, and musical brand of storytelling dares listeners to see a sliver of the world through another's eye.
Snap Judgment host Glynn Washington takes listeners on a narrative journey - leaping from one person's frying pan into another person's fire. Deejay-driven musical delivery, paired with lush sound design, drops listeners into the very heart of what matters. Snap Judgment's fast-paced (sometimes dark, sometimes playful) narrative highlights people from across the globe who put everything on the line.
Glynn Washington explains, "It's storytelling... with a beat."
"It's the Robert Frost thing: the roads diverge, and you have to make a choice," Washington said. "You always wonder what your life would have been if you'd gone the other way."
On the dynamic SnapJudgment.org site, listeners are encouraged to share their own stories through audio, video, photos, text - whichever medium they choose. They can then post their stories (and other people's) via Facebook, Twitter or any other social media directly from SnapJudgment.org. "But of course," Washington notes, "people can always just pick up a phone and call me at the Snap Judgment hotline, 1-888-304-SNAP."
