Katie Leigh and Will Ryan (voices of Connie and Eugene) banter on-mic and off-mic

June 23rd, 2015

Will and Katie’s new book features a photo taken in 1983, before Adventures in Odyssey began. Do they look like Connie and Eugene?

Katie Leigh has played Connie Kendall since AIO episode #4 in 1987. Will Ryan has played Eugene Meltsner since 1988. But they’ve never appeared together on an Adventures in Odyssey podcast. It’s time to change that as the two of them share how they met, the truth behind their banter in the studio, and what they’ve been up to recently.

Eugene uses his computer talents to help the Odyssey Police solve a mystery at the bank. And Buck becomes entangled with Vance’s gang in a way that looks like trouble. Where will it all lead?
