Two former executive producers of Adventures in Odyssey enter the studio

April 27th, 2016

Kurt Bruner, Al Janssen, and Bob Smithouser in the studio

Kurt Bruner, Al Janssen, and Bob Smithouser in the studio

Kurt Bruner and Al Janssen both worked with Adventures in Odyssey in the late 1990s and early 2000s. Now, they work with Open Doors, this month’s featured ministry in the Odyssey Adventure Club. Kurt and Al told us about working at Whit’s End, whether “Sunset Bowlawater” fits in Adventures in Odyssey, and a soon-to-be-fan-favorite bailiff character. Plus, they tell us what Open Doors is doing around the world and how the Club episode “When One Door Closes” fits into that mission.
