❤️❤️❤️

I found snap judgement only a few months ago via a friend, but now I have listened to each episode at least once, some more than once. It is really investing and the stories that you bring in are so interesting. My favorite is probably Kismet or The Search for No Name Aporva. The only negative feedback I would give is that you kind of spoil the ending of a story when you have the actual people read it. For example, In The Pink Palace, I knew that they were going to survive because they were telling it. If you are still reading this, I don’t know what you are doing. Go and listen to this amazing podcast.

MULTIFACETED STORYTELLING AT ITS BEST!

In my opinion, Deep Dive episode was one of the best shows ever in podcast journalism! The reporter providing the story about Haenyeos was fascinating on so many levels because of the different situations the reporter found themselves in. I appreciated how they didn’t shy away from sharing their own experiences and how these overlapped and intertwined with the “real” story they were sent out to do; ultimately allowing us a bird’s eye view of the real story in its multifaceted entirety. I felt empowered afterwards to work harder on all of my own projects. ONE HUNDRED SNAPS UP!!!
