Glynn Washington

We all give serious thought to what we look like when we leave the house. If we’re going to a job interview, we’re going to be especially pressed and clean. If we’re going to a sports bar, maybe a 9ers jacket and some tennis shoes. We’re the same person. It’s just that we’re off to do different things, so we’re wearing a different costume.

Even though the setting is mundane, Glynn Washington’s griping story hinges on that idea. And for anyone who’s ever ridden a bus in San Francisco, it’s going to ring true.

Glynn Washington is the host and executive producer of NPR’s Snap Judgment, which Ira Glass called, “Amazing . . . a cousin of This American Life that grew up in a wildly different neighborhood . . . “Glynn has worked as an educator, diplomat, community activist, actor, political strategist, fist-shaker, mountain-hollerer, and foot stomper.
