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.

These short stories examine how life in India is changing rapidly, through the lens of how women are dressing. With the massive influx of Information Technology and its presence in the subcontinent, India is at a crossroads of old-world and modernity; this is expressed and often evident through physical adornment. Women, especially, are important to observe and document since they are often the leaders in ornamental customs. Women have strong traditions of adornment practices, and their stories, passed from mother to daughter, are changing in the process. Their stories, some centuries old, are told in this series.
