Voices of Exchange is a brand-new podcast from the Office of Alumni Affairs in the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA). It launched March 31, 2021. This podcast features the voices of exchange participants from the millions-strong international exchange alumni network.
The first season brings you stories of 10 different alumni, including a scientist turned "Disinformation Warrior," a disability rights advocate/future Marshall Scholar, an illustrator who helps us find art hiding in plain sight, a paratriathlete/entrepreneur, and an immigrant turned U.S. diplomat.
“Our alumni have incredible stories that we hope will inspire others to build resilience and strive for diversity, equity, and inclusion in their communities.” said Matthew Lussenhop, career diplomat and ECA’s Acting Assistant Secretary. “Voices of Exchange provides a platform for our exchange alumni to share their stories and knowledge with those wanting to make a difference globally.”
If you want stories of growth, unexpected friendship, and career inspiration from all around the world, directly from the voices of international exchange alumni, then Voices of Exchange is the podcast for you.
Voices of Exchange is a successor to the 22.33 podcast. New episodes of Voices of Exchange will be released every two weeks on iTunes and wherever else you get your podcasts. You can also listen to Voices of Exchange right here on our website.
