The My Peace Corps Story Podcast showcases some of the many diverse and vibrant stories of Peace Corps Volunteers, in their own words. Hear the varied experiences had by generations of Americans when they devoted two or more years of their life to national service abroad.



While often cited as a positive, life-changing experience, service in the Peace Corps is not easy. This show portrays Peace Corps service as it is, both the good and the bad. The host of the show, Tyler Lloyd, served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Burkina Faso and would “gladly and proudly do it all again.” The difficulties and risks of serving abroad, however, should not be understated or taken lightly.



My Peace Corps Story Podcast will captivate you with the personal stories of Americans working and living abroad. Each episode, we explore the cultures, communities, and people that make the Peace Corps an unparalleled experience, filled with stories worth telling.

Fantastic Resource for Future Volunteers

I’m a current PCV in the Kingdom of Tonga, and this podcast helped me prepare for my service in a really big way! Listening to stories from around the world helps me feel connected to a community much larger than myself. Can’t recommend it enough!

Hopeful Future PCV

I love listening to this podcast and to all the RPCVs experiences. It’s really inspired me to become a PCV and has given me insight to the various highs and lows of service. I recently interviewed for PC Kyrgyzstan and hope to become part of the Peace Corps family soon! I find myself looking forward to listening to new episodes during my gym sessions and day dreaming about the possibilities for my future service! Can’t wait to hear from a volunteer who has served or is currently serving in Kyrgyzstan :)

Future PCV serving in Guatemala

Tyler, listening to your channel and all of your interviews back to back have been amazingly informational for me! Especially not personally knowing many volunteers myself, this has been my format for learning different perspectives and aspects of service from so many people. I love that you have this as an outlet for people to tune in on and it helps me feel connected and in the loop!!
