Voices of Exchange Podcast: Jumping Out of Water
Voices of Exchange is a new podcast by the Office of Alumni Affairs in the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs that features the voices of alumni of U.S. government exchange programs, cultural and sports envoys, exchange visitors, and more.
