Sound is our first and primal sense and we live our lives bombarded with news, yet the stories we are missing – stories that not only entertain and inform, but feed and transform us- are harder to come by in today's fast media. Story Traveler is a weekly 5 minute story series, produced and broadcast by Gioia Timpanelli, one of the founders of the world wide storytelling revival, telling contemporary stories and world folk tales with local diversity and universal humanity. These radio programs are the here and now of the unscripted storytelling art, with stories from everywhere in the world - stories for the heart to hear and the mind to imagine.
