Snap Judgment on KRCC 1
Saturdays, 3:00 - 4:00 PM
Glynn Washington - Host & Executive Producer
Before creating the Snap Judgment radio show, 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.
Mark Ristich - Executive Producer
Mark Ristich founded Snap Judgment with Glynn. Mark records, writes, edits and produces for Snap Judgment and has no other interests.
Anna Sussman - Producer
Anna Sussman has been trying to report serious stories but really reporting on frivolity for the past nine years. She earned two masters degrees from the University of California at Berkeley, in Journalism and Human Rights, and founded Backpackjournalist.org with her husband, reporting stories on U.S military debacles, international war tribunals and man-eating crocodiles from 21 countries.
Anna comes to Snap Judgment from the wilds of the freelance jungle where she reported for CNN, Current TV, PRI and the San Francisco Chronicle. She also plays the banjo and can be spotted in a Thai sports drink commercial.
Stephanie Foo - Producer and Music Editor
Stephanie Foo's high school yearbook named her "Most Craziest," which explains a lot--mostly about the state of grammar instruction within our school system. She asks a lot of questions, cuts tape, curates music and gets rock stars on the show. She graduated hella cum laude from the University of California, Santa Cruz. When she's not hustlin' for Snap, she produces her own music podcast, Stagedive, which features musicans telling their stories. Sometimes she tweets and stuff too.
Pat Mesiti-Miller - Radio Show Sound Design / Producer
Pat Mesiti-Miller produces that signature Snap Judgment sound. He is a phonetic fanatic, sonic sensationalist, and vinyl visionary.
As a freelance Sound Engineer and artist, Pat has produced audio content for commercials, films, music records, and engineered a live comedy show for multiple seasons. Bringing the boom bap to snap, Pat produces and engineers with a beat. He heads his own hip hop production studio where he writes, records, and mixes original music. He makes beats, makes jokes, and makes a mean eggplant parmesan.
Renzo Gorrio - Producer
Growing up in the suburbs of Miami, Renzo Gorrio had nothing to do but make music and rollerblade. His passion for creating music grew along with his home studio.
After graduating from SAE Miami, recording bands in basements, garages and living rooms and scoring short films and cartoons filled the time between touring with his own band. After living in Portland, OR for 2 years, he moved to the Bay Area to further his involvement in music and media art.
Will Urbina - Video Producer and Graphics Designer
Will Urbina doesn't produce radio... but he does do just about everything else. Whether it be Photoshoping Glynn into something presentable for a new episode cover, directing a team of cameramen at one of our live shows, or running wires through walls to install Snap Studios new “On Air” light, Will’s the one working behind the scenes to make sure Snap Judgment looks as good as it sounds.
Beyond Snap Judgments Will’s much more self centered and arrogant. He has a website and Youtube channel that features nothing in particular other than “Stuff he does.” A seamless weave of circuit boards, cinematography, and raw steel - his work has been blogged about by the likes of Engadget, Make Magazine, Apartment Therapy, and more.
Check out his greatness at WilluDesign.com.
Nick van der Kolk - Producer
Nick van der Kolk is a radio producer and sound designer whose work has aired on numerous radio outlets worldwide. He's the host of WBEZ's Love + Radio and the co-founder of Megapolis -- an audio art and leftfield radio documentary festival. His radio career began in 2001 as a DJ and later station manager of his college student-run station (slogan: "Radio stations with listeners have sold out"). He won the top prize at the 2011 Third Coast International Audio Festival and is a 2012 USA Artists Collins Fellow. He joined the Snap Judgment staff in 2012.
Julia DeWitt - Producer
Before Snap Judgment, Julia DeWitt studied reintegration of combat-related PTSD in veterans. After college she received a National Geographic Young Explorer grant to cover the cultural revival happening in the remote northwest of British Columbia, Canada. Tending bar in Boston she served many a storyteller at her local pub (and can make a tasty Sidecar). Trained in radio by the Kitchen Sisters and acculturated as editorial staff of Pop-Up magazine, Julia signed up with Snap to be part of the "new wave of public radio" (-Ira Glass). When she's not riding the wave, Julia likes to hike, bike, climb, and shred the gnar.
