Glynn Washington is host and executive producer of Snap Judgment, heard on NPR stations nationwide. Snap delivers a raw, musical brand of storytelling, daring listeners to see the world through the eyes of another.

In this interview with NTEN’s Content Manager, Steph Routh, Glynn talks about his origins as a radio show and podcast producer, describes why storytelling matters in the pursuit of social justice, and offers advice for nonprofit organizations within the world of storytelling.

Before creating Snap Judgment, 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.
