Our Editor's Take


What happens when immersive audio beats blend with first-person storytelling? Will the combination hold a captive audience? Public Radio Exchange's podcast Snap Judgment attempts this bold experiment. This is a musical brand of storytelling. Each tale unfolds with cinematic musical beats and dramatic narration. This, in the words of the podcast itself, is “Storytelling... with a beat.”

Listeners can expect a buffet of stories from all walks of life. The podcast shares perspectives from every facet imaginable. The series plucks its content from unexpected and unimaginable sources. In each episode, Snap Judgment delivers an original tale accompanied by climatic music. Every account offers an authentic human perspective, from survival stories to strange experiments. Listeners should know many of the podcast episodes contain sensitive topics.

Listeners get to cruise with Mary Gidley and ten others in the strangest group experiment of all time. They also get to discover the origins of white gold fever. These are but a taste of the flavor of adventures to come with Snap Judgment.

Award-winning media personality and host Glynn Washington anchors the Snap Judgment podcast. Producer Annie Nguyen joins the crew with score composer Leon Morimoto and designer Teo Ducot.
