On this episode of the podcast we talked with Ben DiNapoli, a Peace Corps Volunteer serving in Cambodia. We discussed Buddhism and its impact on Cambodian culture, how Cambodian kids grow up a lot quicker than American kids, and weighing babies. Ben also told some really funny stories about poop, shared his “Welcome to Peace Corps” moment, and described what it was like having to leave all his bags in South Korea on his way to Cambodia for the first time.
