    I am amazed at myself… I guessed the secret word 2 days before the episode came out… *chuckles to self* That was a cool interview! Too bad there weren’t more questions…

  • lydia on August 1st, 2009 - 11:29am


    It was really funny. I would have liked a deleted episode though. How long is this secret word contest? Just wondering.

    Chris is so funny! By the way, The Gift of Madge and Guy is one of my favorite episodes!

  • elisa on August 1st, 2009 - 9:59pm


    Super Awesome vidio! I love it! May God bless all the hard working actors an actress’s!!

  • Grace on August 1st, 2009 - 10:22pm


    Funny. I love Chris! She has been such an anchor for AIO. To me she is just as important as Whit, Connie, and the rest of the gang… in some ways more so.

  • Karen on August 2nd, 2009 - 7:23am


    “Sigh” still sooooo good. Hey i just got the LIVE episode yesterday! Loved the video slide show! Can’t what till next week to find out the next word!!!

    It was o.k. I guess. I enjoy the episodes way better.

  • Adri on August 2nd, 2009 - 10:41am


    Very funny! more questions would have nice!

  • jasmine on August 2nd, 2009 - 2:43pm


    Hey Bob and Jesse, I was wondering if AIO would ever make short, half-hour movies based on the AIO episodes. I know AIO made a couple a long time ago ( e.g. Go West Young Man) in video form, but since then they haven’t made anymore. On your podcast a couple months ago, you guys showed a clip of the movie based on AIO they did in India. That was really cool! It would be so awesome if you guys made movies out of the episodes!

  • jaguar j on August 2nd, 2009 - 3:10pm


    That was really good–and really short. I s that normal?

  • christian on August 2nd, 2009 - 3:32pm


    cool and to see Chris! I really enjoyed it – very funny!

  • Kate on August 2nd, 2009 - 4:33pm


    It was short but okay.

  • luke on August 2nd, 2009 - 4:53pm


    how did you guess?

  • Ian on August 3rd, 2009 - 5:44am

  • Jenneniah on August 3rd, 2009 - 8:13am

  • k4 on August 3rd, 2009 - 9:17am

  • realMarizona on August 3rd, 2009 - 8:52pm


    I wonder when the contest will be over? :-)

  • AIO fan on August 3rd, 2009 - 9:29pm


    Do you think that in the end you’ll have to unscramble all the secret words to make a sentence and unlock the grand prize? Right now it seems that way

  • C.r on August 4th, 2009 - 8:59am


    Hi Hadassah I liked that podcast with Chris wish it had more questions we should have a interview with bernard or whit that would be kewl and how do you get those smilie faces!

  • Original joe on August 4th, 2009 - 12:03pm


    Lindsey S., where do you get all your Odyssey information?

  • crystal on August 4th, 2009 - 2:55pm


    I really liked the ‘Business of Busyness’. Now I a suggestion for you. I think you should produce an album that is all about Jared DeWhite and his conspiracy theories.

  • Eugene on August 4th, 2009 - 3:10pm


    Hadessah….. You arent suppossed to ask personal questions like that…..

  • Eugene on August 4th, 2009 - 3:11pm

    ME!! ME!! ME!! I DO!! I DO!! I DO!!

  • Lindsey S. on August 5th, 2009 - 2:57pm


    Original Joe,
    I get my AIO information from several different sources.
    This website, “The Official Guide”, Odyssey episodes, other websites, AIO books, and my years of AIO listening. Let me tell you, it pays off to be a huge fan of Odyssey for years. You come to know almost everything there is to know about this show!

    Your fellow fan,
    Lindsey S.

  • h on August 6th, 2009 - 5:14pm


    What is passages?

  • Ann on August 7th, 2009 - 11:21am


    I love the Gifts for Madge and Guy episode!! I bought it off of iTunes and listen to it every once in awhile for a good laugh!!

  • Lindsey S. on August 7th, 2009 - 1:01pm


    It’s a book series about two kids that go to Marus (a land that can’t be found on any map), and have adventures based off of Bible stories. The first Passages was based off of the story of Gideon in the Bible. The newest Passages I think is based off of either the story of David or Saul. I’m not sure, but I can’t wait to hear it!

  • josh on August 7th, 2009 - 3:46pm


    thank you Lindsey S.!!!!!

  • h on August 7th, 2009 - 4:27pm


    Thanks Lindsey s.

  • Leah kathryn on August 22nd, 2009 - 12:00pm


    The Business of Busyness is a pretty good episode, but Sunday Morning Scramble’s more humorous in my oppinion. :-)

    The Original L.K.
    (BTW, why am I not getting any more “Civil War interegations?” And yeah, I know my spelin’s teribul. :-)
