  • Lindsey S. on April 24th, 2009 - 1:04pm


    I actually like the rap. Do you think that you can make ‘Lights Out At Whits End’ a free episode?

  • Bethany.s on May 2nd, 2009 - 6:04am

  • The wolf on June 2nd, 2009 - 5:00pm


    Adventures in Odyssey are a reassuring radio program one can listen to without having to worry about what they might say on the radio and knowing that you will strengthen your faith while listening to an inspiring show.

  • Mercy on June 23rd, 2009 - 10:25am


    the rap is cool!!

  • Mercy on June 30th, 2009 - 9:43am


    now because of the secret word contest, I got to listen to Lights Out At Whits End, & it really is NOT that great…..

  • ben on July 1st, 2009 - 10:47am

  • nate on August 31st, 2009 - 3:08pm


    You can get Lights out at Whit’s End when you put in the secret word for the Washington Secret Word Contest. The episode is, Mystery at Tin Flat. I like Lights out at Whit’s End, but the last part isn’t something that the producers would air.

  • Ashley on September 6th, 2009 - 10:35am


    I love Jason he’s like my favorite charactor!! Please bring him back.

    How do we send in questions like the ones answered in the podcast?

  • ethan on October 3rd, 2009 - 9:16pm


    “Communicate” sounds hilarious; by the way, the Imagination Station is a Windows XP, with digital projection AG settings, time code 44.3.

  • idance4jesus on October 9th, 2009 - 10:16am

  • Icarly on January 15th, 2012 - 10:00pm


    you no sam i love odssey

  • thomas on October 2nd, 2013 - 9:47am


    If that rap is your ONLY excuse for not playing “Lights Out at Whit’s End”, then it’s a poor one. You should have at least put it on the “Lost Episodes” album. If you would put it online, I’d be willing to pay double the cost (currently $1.98) of what a regular episode costs (curently $0.99).

  • smile on May 26th, 2014 - 9:56pm


    Can you put more pop-upisodes on the podcast

  • odyssey on June 13th, 2014 - 1:38pm


    Jason is probably my favorite character!! I was so sad when they did that one episode where Jason was in an “explosion” and “died”. I was smaller at the time and I was sooooo sad!! Could Jason marry Connie? I’ve wondered why Connie wanted to see Jason in the episode where Jason came to Odyssey for a time of solitude.

  • 1of7 on April 21st, 2016 - 8:52am

    If you wanna chat please come here…..

  • pupcake on February 13th, 2018 - 12:08pm


    @Dancelover, I will be sure to pray for you! My brother is just getting over a sickness, and I had a flu-like virus 2 times in December. I know how miserable it can be sometimes. If you need something to keep your mind off your sickness, try reading ‘The Green Ember’ series, or ‘Trojan Horse Traitor’. The first is by S. D. Smith, and the second is by Amy C. Blake. They are both amazing books.
