Totally Random Question

Do you have a TRQ? Not a Twisted Rubber Quilt or Titanium Rabbit Queen. Actually we’re referring to Totally Random Questions, which we have begun asking during interviews on the Official Adventures in Odyssey Podcast. And here’s the cool part: They’re not our questions…they’re yours!

This new podcast feature gives fans a chance to ask members of our cast and crew unpredictable questions that have nothing to do with, well, anything. “What’s your favorite sea creature?” “If you could travel through time, which year would you visit? “How do you feel about quinoa?”

Totally random. In fact, we can’t even be sure who’ll get to answer your question. It could be an actor who’s worked on the show for decades, or maybe one making their Odyssey debut. Perhaps it’ll be a writer. A sound designer. The guy who waters our plants. We do know one thing: They’ll never see your question coming.

So do you have a TRQ?? Leave it in the comments below. Then listen for your username on future podcasts! If Bob and Jesse pick your Torque Risk Quotient … er, Totally Random Question … they’ll be sure to give you a shout-out!
