Glynn Washington is the host of SNAP Judgement, the storytelling program set to a beat.

Washington and SNAP came to Detroit this fall with their live stage show. He stopped by Detroit Today to join host Stephen Henderson for conversation about his life, and what brought him to public radio. 

Washington and Henderson talk about; why Glynn’s family moved from Detroit to a rural farm in the thumb region of Michigan, growing up in a white supremacist Christian cult, leaving the cult and travelling the world… all before heading off to law school and stumbling into storytelling with SNAP.

It’s a conversation you won’t want to miss.
