Snap Judgment is heard weekly on over 365 public radio stations, including Iowa Public Radio, and downloaded over two million times a month. The Atlantic magazine hailed Snap's Glynn Washington as "the first African American (NPR) host to swing a big cultural stick, the first who seems likely to become a public-radio superstar on the order of [Ira] Glass..." 

Before 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.
