Cogitate, an original audio broadcast produced at Cogswell Polytechnical College, was inspired by the work of one Bay Area storyteller in particular: Glynn Washington, host of NPR/PRI’s Snap Judgment.


We heart Snap Judgment. So a thousand thanks to Glynn, who permitted us to interview him.


This issue we will hear from "defenseless poet" Maceo Montoya and controversial artist Ana Teresa Fernandez, who once erased a national border.
