Snap Judgment is a themed, weekly NPR storytelling show. We take listeners on a narrative journey to explore the decisions that define lives. We focus on mixing killer beats with real drama to produce cinematic, dramatic radio.
Expect to go somewhere you have never been. Expect magic. Expect to put on someone else’s skin. Expect to feel. Snap storytellers don’t just tell you a tale; they drop you into THEIR world.
Campaign Ends THIS Friday:
Stretching for New $200,000 Goal
Snap ain't free. If you want the biggest, baddest, Season Six of Snap -- complete with Storytellers, Sound Designers, Writers, Musicians, Fire-eaters, Raconteurs, and Regular Folk -- We are offering great gifts along with the stories that rock your world.
Let 'em know you live your story . . . with a BEAT.
Now, we're stretching for $200,000 in order to make some much-needed upgrades for our tiny team.
We hear you! Snappas want MORE cities for Snap LIVE, DEEPER stories, and more KILLER beats -- and we aim to please!
Additional support will allow us to create "Snap BEATBox," letting listeners inside the mix -- to know exactly what songs you're hearing. It will also allow us to send you original music mixes!
We also want to hire a fiction editor, to bring you more of the stories you dig.
And I wanna send Snap Producers after the story -- no matter where the story goes. Your support makes it possible for Snap's "Little Engine That Could" to find and craft stories that no one thought were possible.
Let's make our mark in Kickstarter history to grab the attention of those traditional radio stations to make even more magic happen.
Snap in the News:
“Snap Judgment, Washington’s fast-paced, music-heavy, ethnically variegated take on the public-radio story hour, has spread like left-end-of-the-dial kudzu” - The Atlantic
"Stories that make you laugh. Stories that make you cry. Stories that refuse to tell you what they mean, but linger, the emotional bells they ring echoing long after Washington’s voice closes out the show, the individuals they introduce populating a new American landscape like a raucous band of ghosts, insisting that their stories, even if they aren’t mainstream stories or white stories or manicured to fit the expectations of NPR listeners, matter just the same. - The Daily Beast

Snap Judgment Touches Lives
"Snap is something my teenager and I can enjoy together -- thanks for giving us something to share in the car!" - Judith Ratcliffe
"During college through today this show has kept me going through so many late nights and grueling projects. I honestly don't know how I'd do it without y'all." - Magenna Brink
"You have made me laugh, cry, and experience the whole gamut of emotions since the inception of the show. I adore you guys and the hard work you put in to create this experience. Happy to be a snapper and a backer!!!" - Stephanie Epstein
"Fantastic show. I'm a relatively new dad (he's 14 months now), and I can tell you when you spend 5 - 10 hours a week pushing strollers, hauling bike trailers, and playing in sand boxes you need a Glynn Washington shouting in your ear to keep you in it to win it :) Thanks Glynn!" - Greg Austic

Risks and challenges
Snap was born of love, and we have balanced on a razor's edge since the very beginning. Your contribution goes directly toward making the most amazing season of Snap the world has ever known. Together, we've surmounted the obstacles before, and created the first five seasons of Snap. Let's do it again.
Reward fulfillment is always a tough challenge for a small group that specializes in making radio, not shipping t-shirts, but we're going to be completely transparent about getting the swag all the way to your door.
