  • AIO FANATIC on February 17th, 2011 - 2:50pm


    I’ve listed to episodes 1 through 4. Sorry to say it, but it was pretty weird… Also, I was very shocked to hear an interview with writer Nathan Hoobler as he said that 1% of the content in the Adventures in Odyssey Official Guide was fake.

  • Wooten rocks on February 17th, 2011 - 3:46pm


    what is the ceiling fan?

  • darell on February 18th, 2011 - 8:21am


    lets have an adventure in budapest with Mitch! please?

  • tALIAX177 on February 18th, 2011 - 8:27am


    I’m just seeing what this emote is. :-)

  • tALIAX177 on February 18th, 2011 - 8:28am


    Oh! That’s exactly how I feel about this blog. :-)

  • daniel on February 18th, 2011 - 11:27am


    i have listened to adventures in oddesy for many years and i wish the old voiceswould be back on the air .but otherwise,its a great show!

  • Guineapigman on February 18th, 2011 - 2:14pm


    @ Wooten rocks,

    The Ceiling fan is a funny podcast with this guy named Ethan Daniels. He it a pretty crazy guy. Ethan and his friends have a band called McKalister Park that is on tour right now. The rock music is making fun of real rock and roll. I would highly recommend the Ceiling fan.

  • edeth on February 18th, 2011 - 2:47pm


    i think it is awsome!

  • mael on February 18th, 2011 - 5:41pm


    Aside from being slightly weird, it’s pretty good

  • rj on February 18th, 2011 - 7:26pm


    i love odyssey

  • SCGarrett on February 18th, 2011 - 9:31pm


    Aaron is the coolest character ever! I wish he would come to Odyssy!

  • Wooten fan 2 on February 19th, 2011 - 11:00am


    Cool! =)

  • Stevie on February 19th, 2011 - 1:47pm


    Odysseyfan#1 I also only listen to the Offical Podcast. I do not like the Ceiling Fan. It is a little to um… strange.

  • drew1200 on February 19th, 2011 - 3:58pm


    I’ve heard about the Ceiling Fan (never the name) and have been looking for it, but never found it! Thanks for the link! 😀 😀 It’s great! 😀 I found out about Oddysey the same way Ethan did, BTW. But I did it first. 😛

  • Jenneniah on February 20th, 2011 - 12:43pm


    I have a question that has been on my mind all week, so I thought I might as well post it on here.
    Are the Rathbone’s saved? I know they don’t act like it, but in some of the episodes it seems like they are.

  • mael on February 20th, 2011 - 1:10pm


    I’ve have now listened to all of them and understand it a little better.

  • Sammi-kate on February 20th, 2011 - 4:53pm


    Love the Ceiling Fan Podcast!! =)

  • emi on February 20th, 2011 - 11:02pm


    This may seem kind of random, but I’ve been meaning to ask this…is Dave Madden still on board with the show? I really love B-TV and the character of Bernard—one of my absolute FAVORITE characters. I love interactions between him and Wooton. And Eugene. And Connie. He’s such a deep and diverse character, especially when played off of others.

  • fang on February 21st, 2011 - 7:12am


    hey, I’m just saying AIO team, we’ve been listing to aloha Oy pt.2 sincce friday….it is now monday and its still there please fix it.

  • thankful on February 21st, 2011 - 7:44am


    I would recommend the ceiling fan too.

  • Jesse fan#1 on February 21st, 2011 - 11:07am


    Will Jesse ever be on the show.
    It’s just not fair that Bob gets to be on the show but not Jesse.

  • serena on February 21st, 2011 - 11:32am


    I rilly think Odyssey and the way you did the averies was so funny! Is Mich going to come back?

  • Guineapigman on February 21st, 2011 - 1:28pm


    How come it is taking so long for them to get the next Family Fun Panel page up?!?! I thought they put it up when the Averies were finished. I have been looking foward to when they do get it up.

    Does anyone here have 9 or more siblings? I have 9 siblings.

  • wooten rocks on February 21st, 2011 - 1:59pm


    this time i did not read all the comments… Yet. well, thank you thank you thank you thank you guinea pig man. but, if you’re not gonna read the post i left on Mitch here it is, i think Connie is 18 and i think that she is Mature enough after 49 albums with Mr.Whitaker and Whits End. she’s learned alot. and i will not give up on Mitch!:)

  • ILoveJesus on February 21st, 2011 - 2:21pm


    Go Album 53 you rock

  • wooten rocks on February 21st, 2011 - 2:25pm


    hey you were right, ceiling fan is awesome!

  • hannah on February 21st, 2011 - 4:34pm



  • ftu on February 21st, 2011 - 5:17pm


    Oh, lovely. Here we go again…

  • serena on February 21st, 2011 - 6:38pm


    oh you rilly should bring Mich back! Even if you have to make cats go extinct in Odyssey. You should bring Robert Michle back to Odyssey. Please!

  • Rock-o-ages on February 21st, 2011 - 8:23pm


    @ Drew1200 and TaliaX177:
    So ya’ll have heard of the Celing Fan Podcast before?
    I was listening to one part of one(maybe about a year back or longer) but it sounded too wierd to me so I turned it off. Maybe I should go back and relisten?
    Are they any good? :)

  • thankful on February 21st, 2011 - 9:06pm


    I have 9 siblings but the guinepigman is my brother it dosint count :)

  • thankful on February 21st, 2011 - 9:08pm



    the odysseyscoop is done by the same people

  • MOLLY on February 22nd, 2011 - 9:46am


    I like the ceiling fan :) Although i would agree that it’s not for everyone. You kindof have to have a certain sense of humor to like it :)

  • VAULT EYES on February 22nd, 2011 - 11:26am


    You should bring “The Ceiling Fan” cast onto a show of Odyssey, it would be GREAT!!!!

  • serena on February 22nd, 2011 - 12:09pm


    Thank you for Odyssey! I rilly like it. And I would rilly like it if Mich could come back. PLEASE can he come back? Album 25 is my faveret album. The time has come is my faveret epissode. My faveret part is when Eugene gets in the Imaganation. I rilly like that. PS. Eugene would not make a good father.

  • serena on February 22nd, 2011 - 12:12pm


    Eugene is my favorite!

  • Guineapigman on February 22nd, 2011 - 12:53pm


    @ Rock of Ages. You didn’t ask me but I will answer question anyway.

    The Ceilingfan is kinda, well, Lets just say I don’t really agree with them exactly. There humor can be a little bit edgy at times. The music is funny though. It is like a mock up of real rock. Hope that answeres you question!


  • Guineapigman on February 22nd, 2011 - 3:02pm


    @ Wooton rocks, I don’t know. The producers said that it would never happen so I guess I am just trying to defend their decision.

  • Tanner on February 22nd, 2011 - 3:27pm


    Hey Stevie! I’m back! sorry I waited till today to say something but I had a cold(still do:( ) and was way to tired. By the way, can anybody tell me just HOW weird is the ceiling fan?

  • Supersis on February 22nd, 2011 - 7:42pm


    Are we going to have another Official Adventures in Odyssey podcast soon? It’s been 13 days.

  • KK on February 22nd, 2011 - 9:48pm



  • Olivia :) on February 23rd, 2011 - 3:09pm


    I thought at first this was just a band, but it’s not. At first I thought it was… well, weird, I guess. But It’s actually pretty cool. Are the two teenagers real people? Or are they made up?

  • drew1200 on February 23rd, 2011 - 3:20pm


    @ Rocko I didn’t start listening to until I saw the link here. I couldn’t find it. :( Yeah, you should definatley listen to it, it is weird, but it gets really funny sometimes. It’s normally easy to understand. 😛

  • Wooten rocks on February 23rd, 2011 - 7:33pm


    @ guinea pig man- i understand, maybe he won’t come back, but, maybe the producers are keeping something from us. maybe Connie can marry Wooten. Who knows.

  • ftu on February 24th, 2011 - 7:56am


    Eww, Connie marry Wooten? What an awful idea! Wooten is probably twice Connie’s age! I doubt the AIO people would do that. Besides, Connie would never fall for Wooten, and vice versa.

  • Guineapigman on February 24th, 2011 - 10:18am


    @ Wooten Rocks. Ok. Maybe they are! Yeh Who know. 😉
    @ Olivia:) No the teenagers are fiction. Not real. They are played by adults.

  • Miss america on February 27th, 2011 - 5:07pm


    I’ve always loved this podcast! It’s funny, awesome, weird, and odyssey loving! (Just like me!!)

  • Stevie on February 27th, 2011 - 10:44pm


    Tanner, 3 words, listen to it. Maybe you won’t share my opinion, but myabe you will. Hope you feel better. 😀

  • taliax177 on February 28th, 2011 - 6:41pm


    @ROA: I’ve never listened to them before.

  • Wooten rocks on February 28th, 2011 - 8:46pm


    @ FTU- i was kidding!!

  • Wooten rocks on February 28th, 2011 - 8:46pm


    really, i was!!:D

  • Rock-o-ages on March 1st, 2011 - 4:30pm


    @ Guineapigman:
    Ah, okay. I get it. 😉 Thanks for the advice!

  • Rock-o-ages on March 1st, 2011 - 4:31pm


    @ Drew1200:
    Thanks! 😀 I may check them out sometime, I might not. I don’t feel like I’m missing anything since it’s not directly related to AIO and just a fan podcast, if you catch my meaning. 😉 No offence to anyone of course! 😀

  • ftu on March 1st, 2011 - 6:16pm


    Haha, you almost had me there, Wooten rocks! Good one!

  • Drew1200 on March 1st, 2011 - 7:03pm


    @ Rocko

    Yeah, I know what you mean. :)

  • EUGENE on March 3rd, 2011 - 1:15am


    What do you mean by magic?
    can some answer?

  • odysseylover on March 3rd, 2011 - 7:21am


    Wow!This is SO cool! 😉 :)

  • serena on March 5th, 2011 - 7:08pm


    I didn’t think the Celling Fan would be so funny! I rilly like it. When is the next one comming out? 😛

  • serena on March 5th, 2011 - 7:09pm


    I miss hearing from Mitch and Leonerd. 😉

  • serena on March 5th, 2011 - 7:10pm

  • VIRGY on March 6th, 2011 - 6:37pm



  • ftu on March 8th, 2011 - 10:36am


    Hey, WOOTEN ROCKS, are you a boy or a girl? I’m just asking because some the stuff you’ve said seems like what a girl would say but you can never tell. I’m a girl, by the way, and I want Mitch back SOOOOOOOON!!! My siblings and I simply love his voice! :) 😉

  • rubin on March 8th, 2011 - 9:16pm
