Our RPCVHI group was first organized in the late 1980s. After more than a decade of informal activities, we became a registered non-profit organization in 2004. We are now a 501 c(3) non-profit organization. We are actively trying to reconnect to RPCVs living in Hawaii through our local RPCV group. Currently, our database maintains more than 600 RPCV contacts and our email list maintains more than 350 local contacts.

At the buttcrack before the buttcrack of dawn, your host sat down with RPCV Robin Fowles to flesh out Jamaica in full: the good, the bad, the ugly, and the consistently disorienting aspects of its culture.

In one fell swoop, delightful RPCV Ninu Sidhu breaks the internet-based radio show's longstanding glass ceiling and completely transmogrifies the host's perception of Liberia: a land of great hospitality, of reasonable stability, and perhaps even of some measure of hope. This episode is a slow burner. Put on a cup of coffee. Drop some acid. Go ...…
 
RPCV Joseph "Joe" Franz makes his metaphysical pilgrimage to our host's basement studio in Omahemia to discuss the current state of America 2.0: Liberia. After a brief and somewhat antiquated-sounding trip back to blogspot.com circa 2009, Mr. Franz details the good that he did, the bad that he saw, and escorts his befuddled host through the fin ...…

Hailey and I chatted one afternoon in May about her Peace Corps experiences in Niger and Senegal. Listening to her story, it struck me that having served in a rural community in Niger, and then serving in Dakar during her third year, Hailey got to have the best of both worlds in terms of Peace Corps experiences. She was able to have that rural ...…
 
I really enjoyed talking with Yoomie and hearing her story. Coming to the US as a refugee from Vietnam, it was interesting to hear about her experiences growing up as an immigrant in the mid-West. I liked how determined and driven she was, and her story really epitomizes the idea of the “American Dream.” For Yoomie, joining the Peace Corps was ...…

Steve and I had an enjoyable conversation in early March, talking about his experiences as a volunteer in the Marshall Islands back in the '80s, as well as life after coming back from the Peace Corps. One thing I liked about his story was that music played a big part in his experience in the Peace Corps. But when he returned to the states, it s ...…
 
Ryan and I chatted via Skype earlier this month about his time in Kenya, where he served as a health volunteer with his wife. I was intrigued by his descriptions of his site, being both very removed from everyone yet connected at the same time. Although he and his wife were placed in a remote community, their house was in close proximity to a c ...…
 
I recently spoke with Alan Toth, a South Africa RPCV, who has just completed a documentary called "Posh Corps."

Doug and I had a fascinating conversation about the early years of Peace Corps. It was also quite interesting to hear him talk about life in the 60's during the Civil Rights era. As a person who was born decades after the Civil Rights movement, most of what I know of that time period was what I read in books. This was really the first time I sp ...…
 
When I first heard about the upcoming documentary, 27 Months, I knew that we had to get someone from the film on our show.

At first glance, Byron and Denise seem to have it easy. They are able to serve in the Peace Corps with their significant other.

However, after talking with them, it ...…
 
I was quite impressed with all the things Travis has done in the Peace Corps and in the years after. But what struck me most was his desire to do something meaningful with his Peace Corps experience. I think every returned volunteer has that desire in some form or another, and it manifests itself in various forms, whether it be pursuing an inte ...…
 
I had a great time talking with Sara in early October. We really hit it off, and I enjoyed listening to her stories about Madagascar.

Justin was really easy to talk to, and I enjoyed listening to his stories of his time in the Peace Corps. Listening to him, it made me realize how the Peace Corps experience often pushes people to step out of their comfort zones. Though we may be skeptical or hesitant at first, the results of that step are often quite spectacular. Another thing ...…
 
Brian was a fascinating man to talk to. From listening to his story, I could tell that he definitely faced some tough challenges during his first Peace Corps service in Morocco, and even during his second Peace Corps service in Jordan. What impressed me most about Brian, though, was his insistence on standing up for what he believed was right. ...…
 
Evelyn and I spoke in late June about her experiences as a volunteer in the Philippines. Having traveled to the Philippines myself, I was keen to exchange stories with her about life over there.

I really enjoyed talking with Nicole about her life as a volunteer in Togo. Since we both served in the same village, it was good to share and compare some of our experiences with each other. And at the same time, it was great to hear about some of the projects she did with the community, many of which I never would have thought to do. It's cle ...…
 
Tim and I spoke in early June about his Peace Corps experience in Jamaica in the early 1990's. It was interesting to hear about his work with the Boys and Girls club in Montego Bay, and also his insights about life in that country, which was far different than what a typical tourist would see. I also enjoyed hearing about his work after the Pea ...…

It was a blast catching up with Laraine and hearing about her post-Peace Corps experiences.

Laraine is such a free spirit, and you can see that in the experiences she's had sin ...…
 
George and I spoke in the spring in his home in Seattle, WA.

I ...…
