Are you a current or returned Peace Corps Volunteer? Are you thinking about joining the Peace Corps? Do you have an adventurous and curious spirit? Peace Corps Revisited is a podcast that explores everything it means to be a Peace Corps Volunteer, leaving familiar life to live and work in a foreign and unfamiliar place. The Peace Corps is a U.S. government-run agency established in 1961 to spread peace and friendship around the world. Approximately 200,000 volunteers have served in 141 countries in the Peace Corps since its inception. During 27 months of service abroad, each volunteer is shaped by their experiences and has a fascinating story to tell. As a returned Peace Corps Volunteer who served in Suriname, South America from 2010-2012, Megan Donohue speaks with volunteers who have served around the world since Peace Corps was first founded. Megan and her guests discuss the incredible highs and the devastating lows that come with service. She discusses the application process and how it has changed in recent years. She talks about successful and not-so-successful projects. She delves into dating and romantic relationships in the Peace Corps. She discusses how the politics of the U.S. and the politics of the host country have shaped service. Amongst many other topics, she also talks about the challenges of assimilating to a volunteer’s new culture, as well as adjusting back to life in the U.S. after returning from service. Megan speaks with volunteers about all that makes Peace Corps the most challenging job you’ll ever love. Whether you’ve served in Peace Corps, are a Peace Corps applicant, or simply have a curious and adventurous spirit, this podcast will appeal to anyone who has a hunger for learning about the various people and cultures that make up our incredible planet.

The perfect Peace Corps podcast!

Love this podcast! I’m interested in joining the peace corps and this podcast really gives the inside perspective. Overall production of the show is very professional- audio and all! Megan, the host, always brings on interesting folks with great stories of their service! Cant wait for more episodes!

Life is Calling....

I closed service almost fourteen years ago, but I so enjoy hearing these stories. A flood of memories comes back to me and I find a special kinship with these folks that, although they service in different parts of the world, many of the experiences are so familiar. Great work! I look forward to hearing more.

So helpful!

I am days away from my Peace Corps interview, trying to do my research to figure out if PC is right for me. This podcast has been so helpful through the process. Thank you for doing this!
