  • rachel on April 16th, 2009 - 6:20pm


    connie is the most awesome person on odyssey!!!!

  • andrea on April 19th, 2009 - 8:39pm


    mandy and connie both rock!

  • hannah on April 24th, 2009 - 4:56pm


    I LOVE Connie!!! She is my favorite, and so is Mandy. Keep up the work Katie and Aria!

  • Mary on April 25th, 2009 - 11:42am

  • skyeler on April 30th, 2009 - 3:14am


    i think mandy is my favorite character. my favorite episodes were the ones with mandy jared liz alex and cal. cal and jared especially

  • skyeler on April 30th, 2009 - 3:16am


    i love that episode about connie and chad pearson. So sweet!

  • Nicole on May 3rd, 2009 - 1:58pm


    Connie is allways in one of those spunky moods, one of those ready or not attitudes. She reminds me of myself.

  • Mercy on June 8th, 2009 - 2:50pm


    SKYELER is totally right!! Mandy & Jared rock!!! 😀

  • Emily on June 13th, 2009 - 5:30pm


    Connie you do a great job on Odessy I love Odessy!

  • noah on June 18th, 2009 - 9:14pm


    Yes, rock on, Katie Leigh, and continue what you are doing for the cause of Christ! I met you at the 20th anniversary live show, and I felt so privileged and honored to meet such an incredible person!

    I like the Chad Pearson episode. He kind of represents today’s idolic figures such as Hannah Montannah or Brad Pitt. This is a fun episode.

    Yes, Jared is awesome! I think (as mentioned in the episode “Something cliqued between us”) he should take over the world!

  • noah on June 18th, 2009 - 9:16pm


    Funny story about “This is Chad Pearson?”

    Chick-Fil-A made it one of their kid’s toys. some parents got upset about a mention to “Middle-Eastern terrorists” on a TV in the electric palace, and they decided to protest. Just one problem: They held their protest on a sunday: the day Whit’s End is closed. 😀

  • Holly on June 20th, 2009 - 9:46am


    i LOVE Connie!

  • Mercy on June 23rd, 2009 - 9:48am

  • Lindsey S. on July 9th, 2009 - 11:53am


    Aravis, I think that Hannah means that she loves how Connie is always SWEET.

  • Mercy on July 10th, 2009 - 12:42pm


    Connie & Mandy totally make Odyssey in every way possible!

  • Lindsey S. on July 20th, 2009 - 5:55pm

  • Lindsey S. on August 20th, 2009 - 3:21pm


    I’m glad that Jared hasn’t taken over the world, and I hope he never does. From the wise words of Mr. Whittaker, “Jared taking over the world? Now that’s a scary thought.”

  • joy on August 25th, 2009 - 3:21pm


    Connie is one of my favorite characters. She is always so nice and sweet. I like some of the arguments she has with Eugene. It’s so funny because they are so different in so many ways!

  • ESTHER. on August 27th, 2009 - 11:36am



  • Lebron on August 27th, 2009 - 3:45pm



  • ISABELLA N.R on August 28th, 2009 - 1:02pm


    Connie is so awesome! She and mitch should really get married some day… or Jason so she can be Whit’s daughter-in-law! Now THAT would be awesome!!

  • KRISTEN on September 6th, 2009 - 10:06pm

I like Mandy to, i never know that Aria acted ducky in the movie “land before time”and i think that’s cool and she’s a good actress.I don’t really like the episode something blue part 2 any more because i get mad at Connie for not marring Mitch.All the actors and actresses do a good job keep up the good work everyone!

  • maria on February 7th, 2013 - 7:59pm


    @Chicken Legs
    Well that was just an expirment, but you don’t count, because you post on the three podcasts below this one. That is why I told Gwenne not to be mad, because it wasn’t suppost to work. I just wondered how many people would come here. I might try it on our computer though. I am using my NOOK®.

    @Anyone else
    Please don’t be mad.

    Well, yes, because I want to have a place where it’s just a group of people hanging out, talking, and also, where not a lot of peoople go, so that there isn’t this big fight, like with katniss

  • Grace on February 25th, 2013 - 3:53pm


    oh,I understand I did the same thing,it just became to crazy to try and have a conversation on the newer ones.However next time you should probably just ask people to post a smile on this page if you visit it.~Grace
