    I finally got oac two days ago. So I get to hear this episode but I won’t get to hear the next one :( . I’m so glad that I got it cause the day after I did I was lazy an did nothing all day, do to strep and a cold. Some thing that I don’t understand, why did they put the David harly episodes on oac? Isn’t it still, unintentionally, making fun of police officers?

  • Tinyauthor12 on May 2nd, 2014 - 5:38pm


    @ Destiny14: That is actually Zach Callison in this episode. I read that it will be one of Zach’s last episodes. I read it on an AIO fan site, that only has official Odyssey news.
    Here it is: “Be sure to check back to the club next week when Mission: Unaccomplished, Part 1 is released, it’s one of the last episodes to feature Zach Callison as the voice of Matthew Parker.” Just thought I’d let you know.

    “Be sure to check back to the club next week when Mission: Unaccomplished, Part 1 is released, it’s one of the last episodes to feature Zach Callison as the voice of Matthew Parker.” Right from AIO Wiki, taken from AIO official news.

  • DESTINY14 on May 3rd, 2014 - 2:24am

  • flyingrider on May 3rd, 2014 - 6:15am

  • Kaelyn on May 3rd, 2014 - 11:46am

  • haleya on May 3rd, 2014 - 7:48pm


    Is Zach Callison leaving all because of a change in his voice (aka sad).

    who is zach

  • flyingrider on May 5th, 2014 - 1:48pm


    ELSA Zach Callison is the old matthews voice and now they have Gunnar something

  • NARNIA on May 5th, 2014 - 4:30pm


    Hi guys . . . new odyssey stinks. They failed. Old ones were so much better.

  • Tinyauthor12 on May 5th, 2014 - 4:47pm


    @ Everyone: Yeah, I really think Zach Callison sounds quite different now. The new voice for Matthew is named Gunnar Sizemore.
    @ BritiansGirl: No, I don’t have an OAC account. *sigh*
    -Peace from the tie-dye chipmunk!

  • alec on May 6th, 2014 - 9:58am


    narnia i do not agree with you :(

  • Daisie on May 6th, 2014 - 1:51pm


    I listened to the podcast with the trailer thing and liked it but did not like Mathews New voice :( :) or Camilla s. I don’t like change;):)

  • Tinyauthor12 on May 6th, 2014 - 3:09pm


    @ Daisie: Actually, that is still the old voice for Matthew. His voice has just changed A LOT!

    I’ll be your posting buddy OhioState! What do you like to do?And how old are you? :-)

  • stormshaadow on May 7th, 2014 - 7:55am


    Yeah, a few months ago Zack had dinner with some AIO guys or something and than tweeted he would be leaving odyssey, which made me kinda upset at AIO, but i got over it. So the social-shout-out didn’t really take me by surprise except the Gunnar Sizemore dude. I think AIO made a smart move, however putting Gunnar in.

  • Kinzey on May 11th, 2014 - 7:21pm


    Hey so I wanted to cry listening to this. Does anyone know if we’ll ever be able to buy these on an album or something? I can’t afford $15 a month :(
    BTW What I heard sounded really good and it killed me inside!!

  • flyingrider on May 12th, 2014 - 1:25pm


    Ok to the guys with girls that like them. Well uh i dont know if this has hit u but wearing hair jell and making it look “cool” is probably what they like. Maybe r=try goin without it. Now me the whole hair thing ( if i really knew them and liked them for the inside it wouldnt matter) i guess it may deter girls who like u for ur looks but maybe not the girls who like u for ur heart. I dont mean any offense at all but i am saying maybe that is ur problem. hope it helps


  • #1 fan on May 13th, 2014 - 9:01am


    @ Anyone who can answer- How do I get guys to stop liking me?

  • Darth Vader on May 13th, 2014 - 9:36am


    @FLYING RIDER – Thanks!! But I am not changing my hair style though. :)

  • Darth vADER on May 13th, 2014 - 10:32am


    @#1Fan – I have the opposite problem! How do I get girls to stop liking me. :)

  • stormshadow on May 13th, 2014 - 11:09am


    But i really don’t want to change the way I look, I’ve thought about it but decided not too. 😀

    I don’t know I have pretty much the opposite problem. 😀

  • flyingrider on May 13th, 2014 - 2:32pm


    DARTH/SHADOW i just thought of it as advice. I dont wanna change u guys but i just thought if it was a big bother then ya. But stay how u are if it is how u like it!
    #1FAN i dont know how to answer u i dont have that problem but i hope u find something!

  • stormshadow on May 13th, 2014 - 3:49pm

    #1FAN my friend just told the guys that she didnt like ’em but that just made him more determined…. Ya he goes to church but he isnt nice. He is mean

  • #1 fan on May 14th, 2014 - 11:14am


    @ flyingrider- I don’t know most of the guys very well. They just annoy me when they won’t leave me alone. But this one guy I met him at youth group. I had sat behind him in church that morning and he didn’t seem to have any friends at youth group yet, so I randomly went up to him and introduced myself. Over the next couple weeks we talked for like half an hour at youth group. We talked about fantasy football and the bears and how we don’t like the cheese heads.anyway back to what I was saying. Then around the beginning of December he started acting really weird. And everyone that I’ve asked what they think happened say that they think he has a crush on me. Then we stopped hanging out and now we aren’t even really friends anymore, and it really annoys me that the only reason that we aren’t friends anymore is cause he got a crush on me. So I want to try to prevent that in the future, but I’m not sure how.

  • Odyssey gal on May 14th, 2014 - 2:53pm


    That pic looks like Matthew and Olivia went on a imagination station adventure to South America or something it looks really cool. So my question is when will album 58 be out? And why are they so much at the family christian store? That’s where we get them all the time. But anyways there $25.00!!!! That’s nuts to me. They should be like $10.00. Any way we love them.

  • #1 fan on May 14th, 2014 - 3:07pm


    @stormshadow-in the world of football i’m against you, and we were referring more to the actual packers team not fans.i can’t tell from your post if i offended you or not… i hope i didn’t, however if i did i’m sorry.

But he’s a freshman and I’m a 7thgr. Is that too far apart?:( my friend keeps threatening me she’ll tell him.

    @poodle lover- i tried avoiding one of them, and yes he told me that he like me. he really annoyed me, he would do things like bring his Pokémon cards and want to show me every single one. i avoided him for a whole year. my sister told me that he kept asking about me. after that year he still liked me! Anyway, no i don’t think that two years is to far apart( the guy i posted about is 16 and I’m 14 and i don’t think that we are to far apart). are you guys friends?

    If you were in High school it could probably pass but … Freshmens and seventh graders think differently . Its not bad and its not really good soo…

  • Anonymous on May 23rd, 2014 - 8:35am


    I think that when your an adult its ok to like someone older then you, but having a guy whose like 16 liking a girl whose 13 isn’t the best thing..maybe its just my opinion.
    But if the girl is mature than it’s probably ok.

  • Rosa Martine on May 23rd, 2014 - 8:46pm


    The spanish accent of the grandma in some episodes is so annoying. I am mexican and it doesn’t even sound like that. Also, the new voice of Camilla is SO annoying. She sounds like a whiny brat. The old Camilla was a good ol’ tom boy. This one isn’t Camilla.
