The Peace Corps Nicaragua Project Brainstorm

“Our philosophy is that a project works better the more collaboration it sees.”

On the 2nd episode of season I chatted with Michael Lifschutz, a Peace Corps Volunteer wrapping up his service in Nicaragua. We talked a bit about his service, the differences between Nicaragua and Costa Rica, and his plans after Peace Corps with Project Brainstorm ( to sign up). We wrapped up by touching on his life before Peace Corps, which included his brief stint as a stand-up comedy in New York City!
