Tuesday, October 10th, 2017

Writer-director Kathy Buchanan and sound designers Nathan Jones and Christopher Diehl talk about the creation of “Find a Penny, Part 1” and give a preview of what’s ahead in “Part 2.”

Album 63: Up in the Air

Wooton Bassett returns from his honeymoon with two major problems – Penny is missing and his memory is gone! The journey to find his new bride means probing the depths of Wooton’s crazy mind while also reliving his honeymoon – everything from skydiving in Nicaragua to singing on stage with Wooton’s favorite band, the Pool Boys! Meanwhile, Eugene and Connie deal with the highs and lows of raising teenagers. Connie’s half-sister Jules tries to recreate her life in Los Angeles by making a new friend – school troublemaker Valerie Swanson. And when Connie’s driving lessons leave fingernail marks on the dashboard, Jules turns to another source to teach her — Odyssey’s new licensed driver, Buck Oliver. You’ll learn the meaning of true friendship and love as you come along for the heart-changing, risk-taking experience of a lifetime!
