CC 25: Writers and Songwriters | Steve Latin-Kasper, Clela Reed, and Ryan Weber

To commemorate our one year anniversary of this podcast, I wanted to showcase the writing and music created by RPCVs and inspired by their Peace Corps experience.  I invited past podcast guests, Steve Latin-Kasper and Ryan Weber to share with us songs that that they wrote.  I also invited poet and Romania RPCV, Clela Reed, who shared her poetry that she wrote during her time in Romania.  I had a lot of fun putting this episode together, and it really highlighted for me how Peace Corps is more than just service and cultural exchange.  It can also be a very deep and personal journey.
