as most of you know by now, this website is dedicated to my experiences that i garner through my time in the peace corps. what some of you probably don’t know is how the peace corps works or what the application process is like.
i most recently listened to a terrific podcast on the matter, and though they cut out about half of what the volunteers go through in the application process, it does give an idea of how the program works and how it is changing.
i would like to note that this podcast is done by the guys over at “how stuff works,” and is not a mouthpiece for the peace corps, but only gives their interpretations of how the program works. it also re-attests the answer that so many volunteers hear so often when asking questions about what experiences they are to expect: “it depends.”
you can listen to the podcast here.
