- produced for Premier Radio in partnership with the London District of the Methodist Church

Travellers’ Tales is a half hour interview between Leo Devine and Christians from different denominations - perhaps well known, perhaps not - about their life/faith journey, and how they’ve experienced God working and moving through all of its twists and turns. It’s a chance for listeners to get an insight into how someone else does their faith, and be inspired by hearing stories of love, dedication, doubt, grace, courage, sacrifice, and hope.
