PODCAST EXTRA: Melissa Feito, Loretto Volunteer at Interfaith Voices November 03, 2017
Long time listeners may have noticed that Interfaith Voices gets a new, full-time associate producer every year. They come to us from the Loretto Volunteer Program, a faith-based service program connected to The Loretto Community, the order of nuns our own Maureen hails from. Around the office, we call them simply "Lorettos," and our newest is Melissa Feito. She made this audio diary to give listeners the inside scoop on a day in the life of an Interfaith Voices producer, and a Loretto Volunteer.
