In 2007, Public Radio Exchange and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting held The Public Radio Talent Quest, an “American Idol” type contest for storytellers. The contest drew over 1,400 participants.What the world, didn't know was that from these participants. a master mind by the name Glynn Washington would be born. Three months earlier he had submitted a story about a young man that was walking toward a friend’s house where he slept on a couch. He had just gotten out of jail and had promised himself that he’d never go back to prison. After passing by a check-cashing place, he suddenly felt a gun barrel against the back of his neck. A voice said, “I saw you just get the money out. Give me the money and maybe I won’t pull the trigger.” What would he do? Would he give away all the money he had in the world or would he fight? This was the pitch for a radio story the Oakland resident had submitted and completely forgotten about. The story became and instant success and would eventually carry him to the final round of the competition. He eventually became one of the three finalists who received $10,000 from the contest’s organizers to develop pilot versions of their shows.
