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 founded Snap Judgment with Glynn. Mark records, writes, edits and produces for Snap Judgment and has no other interests.
Anna Sussman has been trying to report serious stories but really has been 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.
