    I like hearing from Marshal Younger and the rest of the staff. It’s also a lot of fun to hear the stories behind the episodes. Keep up the good work!

    P.S. What happened to the section of the podcast where a secret was shared from the Odyssey Guide?

  • Curtis kids on June 4th, 2009 - 5:00pm


    We would enjoy listening to the Search for Whit 3.
    We really enjoyed the other Search for Whits!
    The Curtis kids~

  • lydia on June 4th, 2009 - 7:32pm


    I loved the Search for Whit 1 and 2. Could you please, please, PLEASE!!!!! Play number 3 tommorrow instead of whatever was intended to play. Please I beg of you! I am on pins and needles!!!!

  • Chels! on June 4th, 2009 - 9:09pm


    Everyone the Search For Whit III is coming out the day after part II, so chill!!!!!

  • LNH on June 4th, 2009 - 10:14pm


    Why do the kidsboro characters sound so mature? They actually sound like adults playing kids…Was this done on purpose? Also, maybe Robert Skead should call Marshall Younger “Marshall” instead of…well, you know 🙂

  • Anonymous on June 5th, 2009 - 9:27am


    This is totally not related, but where’s Search for Whit 3? I don’t know where to address this, so I hope someone sees it. I’m on the edge of my seat waiting to see what happens to Whit… and then the 3rd one is missing!

    I love Odyssey, and have been listening faithfully for umm… 14 years or more. It was my “bedtime story” when I was little.

  • hl on June 5th, 2009 - 10:38am


    LNH, the kidsboro characters are played by adults. Thanks! HL ;}

  • Jessie Fan#1 on June 5th, 2009 - 11:05am


    there was a glitch on the site and The Search for Whit III is not listed as playing today. However, if you click on Search for Whit II and scroll down in the media player, The Search for Whit III is available.

  • Lindsey S. on June 5th, 2009 - 11:53am


    For Anonymous and anyone else; Search for Whit part 3 can be heard on http://www.focusonthefamily.org. Just click on famliy media center at the top of the home page and then scroll down until you find Search for Whit part 3. Hope this helped and have fun listening!!!

  • Joe on June 5th, 2009 - 3:19pm


    Hey, Lydia,
    If your “On pins and needles,” doesn’t that hurt? Anyway, can anyone tell me how you make those emoticon all yellowy and so life like. The best I can do is :). By the way, continuing what Jessie Fan#1 said, Kidsboro 2 is available even though it isn’t supposed to be released until tomorow.

  • xobeo on June 5th, 2009 - 3:29pm


    Thanks Lindsey S. !!!

  • Joe B. on June 6th, 2009 - 3:10pm


    Hey. I have the Original Kidsboro book and I can remember reading it and trying to understand who that kid that claimed he knew Ryan was. The new one’s you made cleared that up for me so thanks. WHen Are you going to make some more? The Audio Version was great too. But I’m really looking foward TO MORE BOOKS!!! PLEASE MAKE MORE kIDSBORO BOOKS MARSHAL!!! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!!!

  • Daniel on June 7th, 2009 - 12:53pm


    Wow! Neato! That’s very interesting.!

  • leslie on June 8th, 2009 - 6:20pm


    Is kidsboro going to be like a whole other Oddessy?
    That would be AWSOME! 😀

  • michelle on June 9th, 2009 - 12:34pm



  • Molly on June 9th, 2009 - 2:23pm


    Hi i love kidsboro! My whole family are like Odyssey fans #1!

    This is totally unrelated, but i think that Jason should get married and whit should get married maybe.

    And Eugene and Katrina should have a baby! Or twins!

  • Naomi on June 9th, 2009 - 3:00pm



  • m. on June 10th, 2009 - 8:37am


    I just want someone to write back.
    could someone?
    i am the last person so far to leave a comment.

  • m. on June 10th, 2009 - 8:39am


    I love kidsboro!

    i LOVE the books much more.

    the kids sound more like adults.
    i love kidsboro and hope that marshal younger will write more.

  • Olivia : ) on June 10th, 2009 - 8:55am


    Dear focus on the family,
    I know this is kinda late and all but the “Adventures in odyssey” one
    where Sam use to be friends with a guy named Bryan but now Bryan is in the bone of rath and does trouble, and the adventure is called :

    “The Good, the Bad and Butch”,

    Well, did you ever continue that?
    I mean did Bryan who’s now named Booch turn away from the bones?
    I know it’s kinda late but i was curious.

  • Olivia : ) on June 10th, 2009 - 11:41am


    Please make more!

    this is my favorite series, i’m sad that i already read all 4 books!
    please make more

  • olivia: ) on June 10th, 2009 - 11:42am



  • michelle on June 10th, 2009 - 11:44am

  • m.l. on June 10th, 2009 - 11:48am

    there my favorite series.
    please make a 5th and 6th and 7th and 8th and 9th and 10th and 11th all the way up to 100.

  • Lindsey S. on June 10th, 2009 - 6:59pm


    Olivia, yes, Butch did leave the Bones of Rath, but he got a black eye and a busted lip for it! You can hear the whole episode in album 25, Darkness Before Dawn. It is towards the end of the album, but I suggest that you listen to the whole album so that you know exactly what is going on. Enjoy!

  • lydia on June 10th, 2009 - 8:07pm


    Thanks for airing “The Search for Whit 3”! I loved it! Thanks a lot!

  • Joe on June 11th, 2009 - 10:05am


    Hey Olivia :), they did continue that story line in album 25, “Darkness before Dawn,” with Sam and “Butch”.

  • Irwin on June 11th, 2009 - 12:50pm


    Thanks for Kidsoboro and the Truth Chronicles Adventures in Odyssey!

  • carissa on June 11th, 2009 - 6:12pm


    I “LOVE Odyssey!!! i listen to it everyday!!!

    Dear Carissa,
    Thank you for your comment. Remember not to submit last names on our forum. 🙂

    It was a good idea to put a stink bombe in Kidsboro.

  • will on June 12th, 2009 - 7:34am


    Pleeeeeeeeeeease make more books!

  • will on June 12th, 2009 - 7:39am


    Good idea of a stink bomb in kidsboro 2.It was funny!

  • will on June 12th, 2009 - 7:50am


    What gave you the idea of kidsboro and where do get kidsboro books?I want to look at pitures of kidsboro.Thanks!

  • will on June 12th, 2009 - 7:56am


    I have listend to kidsboro about athoseend times.I loooooove it!

  • Will on June 12th, 2009 - 8:17am


    I have a problem. Me and my brother are in a fight for this computer game. I have tried to get out of it except it is too strong. We always get into fights about who gets to do it first. We then figured out a plan. I said I would give him a tip every day. I thought that would be a good idea for an episode.

  • a. on June 12th, 2009 - 9:58am


    can connie and jason marry eatchother? I think they would be
    a good match.

  • a. on June 12th, 2009 - 3:24pm


    can eugene and katrina have a baby soon?

  • Savannah on June 13th, 2009 - 3:39pm


    I’d love it if Tasha became a Christian and (finally!) married Jason.
    Connie needs her Mitch!

    When is the NOVACOM saga going to air again? That is THE best AIO saga EVER!

  • aly on June 13th, 2009 - 8:03pm


    I love kidsboro!

  • Anonymous on June 14th, 2009 - 6:33am


    I’m not sitting on pins and needles really.

  • Michelle on June 14th, 2009 - 11:55am


    Your right A, they would make a good match

  • M.L on June 14th, 2009 - 11:59am


    I think the books are much better then the CDs.
    I mean there was NO stink bomb in the books.
    I know this might be annoying, but you kinda ruined the whole books by making that.
    i know it might hurt feelings, i LOVE the books a lot better,

  • Olivia : ) on June 14th, 2009 - 12:12pm


    Thanks Lindsey S. and Joe for answering. : )

  • Sara J. on June 14th, 2009 - 1:11pm


    I agree with A. They should get married! I mean Connie and Jason sound and feel right toghther! They’re both christians, and both cherish whits end. When I heard Jason was getting married, I started screaming at my computer. Good thing Jason broke the marriage. And I still think Connie has a crush on Jason. Just please make it happen Odyssey people. (Who are really cool) P.S- I absolutely love,love love love love—ADVENTURES IN ODYSSEY!!!! I hope to join the cast of this podcast. BYE

  • elise on June 14th, 2009 - 8:18pm


    I *heart* kidsboro!!!!! oh, and jason and connie MUST marry eachother, eugene and katrina MUST have a little girl,oh, and you MUST keep making podcasts!!! well, to be easier on you guys, can just 1 of my wishes be granted??? 🙂 elise

  • KattyBlackyard on June 14th, 2009 - 9:48pm


    Hi, interest post. I’ll write you later about few questions!

  • Victoria e k on June 15th, 2009 - 9:43am


    thanks so much for making kids burow We love it so much!

  • Emily on June 15th, 2009 - 2:36pm


    I disagree with A. Jason and Connie don’t love each other that way. There has never been any real chemistry between them. They’re just friends. I will say, though, that Connie should get married. She’s been single way too long! The AIO staff should bring in Connie’s perfect match, or, maybe bring back a certain FBI agent. (Hint Hint) Come on! Be creative! There is someone out there for Connie Kendall! I’ll be listening for wedding bells.

  • tim on June 15th, 2009 - 8:07pm


    I agree with Emily!! Jason and Connie should not get married because that would be SO unlike Jason or Connie!! However if Connie does get married pleas don’t let be another long, drawn-out, seemingly never too end engagement please!!! 🙂 I also don’t think Eugene and Katrina should have a baby yet because it would take too long for that child to grow up (Unless Odyssey time speeds up again and the baby becomes older than Connie like Rodney did :)) Anyway those are my thoughts on those issues.

  • Gary on June 15th, 2009 - 11:28pm


    How soon will you update your blog? I’m interested in reading some more information on this issue.

  • michelle on June 16th, 2009 - 4:19pm


    i think connie and jason should get married. But i mean… tim and emily might be right.
    I mean what was i thinking. I wished she married mitch,
    But then he died! ( cry ) Oh well. I kinda wish she married
    Eugene. But he already married Katrina. oh well, I don’
    OH well. It would be nice for them to have a child. But i kinda hope its a he.

  • michelle on June 16th, 2009 - 4:22pm



    (-: That’s the best i can do.
    please tell me how you can do it.

  • michelle on June 16th, 2009 - 4:25pm


    Well, i wish connie married mitch, but then he turned out to R.M! How could he? Oh, is there an episode where they find mitch alive?? I mean cause he did die. I mean.. i don’t think he really did die…

  • michelle on June 16th, 2009 - 4:26pm



  • Olivia : ) on June 16th, 2009 - 4:56pm


    Please don’t make Eugene have a kid.
    It would ruin Eugene.
    I mean, Eugene use to be a man who said words no one understood.
    He used to be a single funny guy.
    I’m sorry, he’s not like that anymore.
    Please don’t think I’m being rude,
    it’s just… Well, i don’t think he should’ve gotten married…
    And now you can always understand what he’s saying..
    I just don’t think he’s as funny as he was..
    I don’t want to be rude…. I hope you understand.

  • gelila on June 16th, 2009 - 5:49pm


    Kidsboro is awsome. i heard somewhere there were books- ist that true? Any way, are there more epidoes in the series? I especailly liked the part about judical system (boo Valerie!)

  • a. on June 16th, 2009 - 9:22pm


    thank you Michelle for saying something.

  • janelle on June 17th, 2009 - 1:08pm


    Nice podcast. But I do have to say I enjoyed the books more than the Odyssey episodes of Kidsboro. Tahnks!!! 🙂

  • Michelle on June 17th, 2009 - 2:45pm


    Yes, there are some books Gelila.

    OH, and your welcome A.

  • Abbie on June 18th, 2009 - 10:20am


    I LUV AIO!!!!!! Search For Whit III Was totally a relief to find out what happened. Kidsboro is totally AWESOME (As if your other’s aren’t)!!!!!! My fav character is Alice. She’s so funny! Keep up the good work!
    PS. Is Jason and Tasha gonna get married someday? I think there a perfect match!

  • Abbie on June 18th, 2009 - 10:28am


    i can’t tell if a i desagree or agree with A. but i do know they are a match sort a. But i agree with olivia. now i can understand eugene! we always had a good laugh when eugene stumped connie. Don’t make him change!

  • Rainey on June 18th, 2009 - 2:17pm


    I have read ‘Battle for Control’ ‘The Rise and Fall of the Kidsborian Empire’ ‘The Creek War’ and ‘Risky Reunion.’I have liked them very much. I hope you will write some more Kidsboro books. My Favorite character is Ryan Cummings

  • tracy on June 19th, 2009 - 4:19pm


    don’t let coonie get married to jason she needs to marry mitch they are right together it is true

  • michelle on June 20th, 2009 - 9:44am


    yeah, i agree with tracy, i think connie should marry mitch.
    they are a perfect pair.

  • Steph on June 20th, 2009 - 9:57am


    I totally agree with A. and Michelle.Jason should soo fall in love with Connie andthen they should get married and then Connie and Whit would be related and that would be soo cool because whit was the one who witnessed to Connie and prayed with her the first time!!!!! That would be sooo awesome.

  • eden on June 20th, 2009 - 10:22am


    I love Kidsboro SO much that one day my sister and I made our own “town”. 🙂

  • m.L on June 20th, 2009 - 1:15pm


    mitch and connie should get married!

  • mit on June 20th, 2009 - 3:06pm


    I love the kidsboro I bought all the books and have read them all the books twice some even three or four times and i have listend to the episodes plenty of times i wish they would make more episodes to!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

  • Shiloh on June 20th, 2009 - 10:24pm



  • Mariane on June 20th, 2009 - 11:05pm


    Jason and Connie sitting in a tree…..
    Please, PLEASE, PLEASE make Jason And Connie Get Married

  • Julia on June 21st, 2009 - 5:00pm


    I ordered the 1st Kidsboro book and I CAN’T WAIT FOR IT TO ARRIVE! I LOVE KIDSBORO!!

  • Julia on June 21st, 2009 - 5:08pm


    im also kind of confused about the connie/mich relationship. it seemed like they had broken up for good in the album “in hot pursuit” but it would make an AWSOME episode if mich came back. but it kind of seems like connie isn’t the kind of girl to get married. hmmmm… what do you think people? reply! oh, but i do agree with elsie but disagree with olivia. i think it would be sweet for eugene and katrina to have a baby, and it would make a good episode on responsibility. Plese tel me wat u thnk.

  • a. on June 21st, 2009 - 9:54pm


    thank you so much for agreeing with me Sarah J. i loved your

  • a. on June 21st, 2009 - 10:16pm


    i love Aio! they make good shows.

  • Gemma on June 22nd, 2009 - 2:53am


    I know, Jason and Connie like each other but then Mitch comes back and Connie has to Choose!! That would be an awesome episode!! If not that Connie should marry someone!! She has been in Odyssey for ages and she is still not married!! The kids that she used to see at Whits end are getting married before her!!

  • Marizona on June 22nd, 2009 - 2:57am


    Sorry that was one of my ‘so called’ friends. Sorry Joe!

  • Marizona on June 22nd, 2009 - 4:00am


    tracy its connie.C-O-N-N-I-E. just thought i’d let you know. 🙂

  • Michelle on June 22nd, 2009 - 4:07am


    Connie and Jason can’t get married! They just can’t!

  • Tim on June 22nd, 2009 - 11:13am


    I hate to break this news to about Mitch/Connie getting married but Kathy Buchanan, writer for AIO, said that Mitch would come back when Ronald McDonald became a vegetarian, Starbucks ran out of money, and the Chicago Bulls would win the Super Bowl (yes, she knows they play basketball and not football)! So it does not look like Mitch and Connie will ever tie the not. I got this quote directly out of the official guide. Oh well, water under the bridge!

  • michelle on June 22nd, 2009 - 11:38am


    That would be awesome!!
    If an episode where Mitch returns but connie likes jason.

    I’ m sorry, but i don’t think jason and connie should get married.
    connie and mitch should totally get married!!!!!!!!!
    C & M !!!

  • Lindsey on June 22nd, 2009 - 12:21pm


    In reply to Julia.
    Connie shouldn’t get married to either Jason or Mitch. She and Mitch were close, but I think that there is someone better out there for Connie. She really deserves someone special! Oh by the way, Connie no longer likes Jason as a cutie guy, she now likes Jason as a really good friend. If you don’t believe me, just listen to the past 5 albums (45-50) and you will hear that they just think of each other as friends. And I think that is the way it should be!

  • a. on June 22nd, 2009 - 2:27pm


    could someone please tell me if mitch dies? and does Jason ever marry Tasha?

  • a. on June 22nd, 2009 - 2:29pm


    I agree with you Steph! great comments!

  • a. on June 22nd, 2009 - 4:01pm


    if jason dosent marry tasha and connie dosent mitch then they really should marry eachother. even if they dont marry
    eachother they should marry somebody!! and if they do marry
    someone please dont make the romance long and drawn out like
    eugene and katrinas.

  • michelle on June 23rd, 2009 - 11:30am


    kartrina RUINED Eugene!

    Now he’s not very funny!
    he’s all about “KATRINA!”

    It would be funnier if he married Connie!

    Its funny cause they hate each-other so much!!!

    well, they don’t HATE each-other…..

    but i kinda wish they married.

  • michelle on June 23rd, 2009 - 11:32am


    Yes A.
    Mitch does die.

    BUT CAN SOMEONE TELL ME IF HE returns????????????
    its mysterious! please tell me if he does return.

  • michelle on June 23rd, 2009 - 11:33am



  • mit on June 23rd, 2009 - 2:34pm


    hey michelle mich does return i think it in volume 40 then connie almost marries him but he never really did die!!!

  • mit on June 23rd, 2009 - 2:35pm



    jason never marys tasha

  • a. on June 24th, 2009 - 1:28pm


    what? jason never marries tasha?! and connie never marries mitch?! i cant believe it! well, I guess they can now marry eachother. please connie, please jason marry eachother.or marry someone! please!

  • michelle on June 24th, 2009 - 1:50pm


    OH! Is that the one where he went in the car, and connie thought he was kidnapped? and they almost got married Mit?
    I remember that one! but…. i didn’t know he returned in that one.

  • OLIVIA : ) on June 24th, 2009 - 2:23pm


    Well, to tell you the truth, i don’t think Connie should get married.
    I mean, if you think about it, it wouldn’t be like connie.
    I mean, imagine her kissing a man.
    “Bye dear, see you later.”(Connie)
    “Okay, sweaty, i love you.” (Her Husband)
    That is NOT Connie.
    PLease don’t make her change.
    Connie is a teenager who everyone loves and i will miss her if she gets married because she won’t be Connie anymore.

  • a. on June 24th, 2009 - 3:09pm


    i agree with all of you who have said that eugene is not funny anymore. I dont think he is very funny anymore either.
    I want him to go back to his old self.

  • samantha on June 25th, 2009 - 5:35pm


    I LOVE kidsboro!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! VARY MUCh!!!!!!

    In Christ,

  • michelle on June 26th, 2009 - 6:22am


    Yeah, Eugene is not funny anymore.

    and connie won’t be either if she gets married.

  • kate on June 26th, 2009 - 6:46am


    it would be really funny if connie and eugene get married. and PLEASE bring whit back dont let him stay in the archaeological dig!!!

  • Rebekah on June 29th, 2009 - 7:55am


    Me and my sis love Odese.

  • jesse on June 29th, 2009 - 11:22am


    i loved it (:

  • Lindsey S. on June 29th, 2009 - 1:50pm


    Don’t worry Kate, they do bring Whit back. Listen to “Welcome Home!” to hear the whole story.

  • Christian A. on June 30th, 2009 - 4:13am


    This is one of your coolest podcasts yet! Though I agree with LNH in that Robert sounds kind of silly calling Marshal, ‘Mar’. Keep up the great work Bob and Jesse!

  • OLIVIA on June 30th, 2009 - 12:15pm


    I have a joke:

    Q: What kind of food is flexible?

    A: A banana split!

    Um.. Write back and tell me if you liked it.

  • samantha on July 2nd, 2009 - 1:08pm


    HaHaHa a bannana Split! Funny good one Olivia!

  • michelle on July 2nd, 2009 - 2:51pm


    everyone is talking about it, when i don’t know how to listen to it or what it is.
    could someone please tell me??

  • Olivia on July 2nd, 2009 - 3:09pm


    Thanks Samantha.
    I am the same person as OLIVIA, i just forgot the : ).

  • a. on July 3rd, 2009 - 1:12am

  • m.l on July 4th, 2009 - 9:29am


    yeah, how can we listen to search for whit??? please tell me.
    everyone keeps talking about it!

  • Olivia on July 7th, 2009 - 8:32am


    Really? I hated the joke. My younger cousin told it to me and I was trying to convince her not to say it in public. But I guess everyone has their own opinions. 🙂

  • Olivia: : ) on July 7th, 2009 - 10:32am


    Thats okay.
    It wasn’t that great of a joke.
    Oh, and people,Olivia is not the same person as i am.
    I am OLIVA : ) but my computer is not adding the : ).
    Well, it was nice meeting you OLIVIA.
    It’s okay you don’t like the joke.
    It really wasn’t that great.
    You’re right.
    Everyone has their own opinions.

  • michelle on July 7th, 2009 - 10:48am


    yeah, everyone has opinion’s. but opinion’s can hurt people’s feelings. You know what i mean.

  • ymca on July 7th, 2009 - 6:16pm


    hello everyone, has any of you read that book series adventures in odyssey with patti and mark???

    well, is that the last book when he goes to camp and shares a cabin with the bully??

  • Lindsey S. on July 10th, 2009 - 2:42pm


    Michelle and M.L,
    Unfortunately you can no longer listen to ‘The Search for Whit’. But if you want to listen to other past shows, go to the whitsend home page and click on listen to today’s show. That will take you to Focus on the Family Media Player Center. From there you just scroll down and you will see some recently played episodes. But if you keep scrolling down, then you will see some page numbers on the bottom right-hand corner. Click on those and you can listen to even more episodes!

  • Becky:) on July 12th, 2009 - 8:17pm


    Hope 2 hear more kidsboro in the future!!!!

  • Lindsey S. on July 24th, 2009 - 3:46pm


    Mitch didn’t die, he did go to Budapest, and I think he is still there now. That is so cool that you and I have the same name. How old are you and do you live here in the U.S.? I am 17 and I live in Texas.

    I love the KIDSBORO BOOKS !

    the people in the c.d.’s are adults, NOT kids.

  • OLIVIA : ) on July 28th, 2009 - 1:45pm


    Wow, LINDSEY S. You’re 17?
    Do you go to college yet?

  • Lindsey S. on July 29th, 2009 - 12:50pm


    Yes! I am Dual Credit student at a local community college where I live. For those that don’t know what Dual Credit means, it means that I am earning high school credit AND college credit at the same time! By the time I graduate from high school this May, I will of already finished my first year of college. I LOVE getting ahead!!!

  • OLIVIA : ) on July 30th, 2009 - 8:20am


    Wow.. It’s like your in high school AND college!

  • Olivia on August 6th, 2009 - 5:53am


    im really sorry OLIVIA:). i didnt mean to sound soo rude. please forgive me!

  • Lindsey S. on August 6th, 2009 - 7:17pm


    Ok, I’m confused. There are TWO Olivia’s? Please identify yourselves better so I know actually which Olivia I am blogging to. Thanks!:-)

  • AShley on August 7th, 2009 - 11:52am


    Lindsey SI noticed that one Olivia has a smily face next to their name. The other one doesn’t. I liked the video.

  • AShley on August 7th, 2009 - 11:53am


    I meant to put a period and a space between the S and I

  • OLIVIA : ) on August 7th, 2009 - 3:08pm


    It’s okay, Olivia. And no, everybody, We’re not the same people. I’m olivia : ) and she’s olivia.
    Thanks for apologizing, Olivia.
    Sometimes we say things that kind of sound rude but we don’t mean it.
    Besides, the joke wasn’t actually that great.
    Does anybody have a better punch line than a banana split?

  • OLIVIA : ) on August 20th, 2009 - 7:23am


    I’m so excited!
    Yesterday my siblings and I created a town!
    I don’t want to tell you the name in case you decide you wanna a name a town you created like it.
    My older sister is the Mayor, my younger sister is the vice mayor,(I don’t know if there are real such as vice mayors)
    My dads the Juge, my brother is the detective, my sister owns the restaurant, and I am a Librarian.
    We have lots more jobs but that’s just a few.
    Todays the first day we start our town!

  • Original joe on August 20th, 2009 - 1:54pm


    Olivia :), that’s cool. Did you name it “Kids (+Dad) boro”?

  • Lindsey S. on August 20th, 2009 - 2:57pm


    That is really cool! I wish my family could do that, but unfortunately I have only two siblings. Not enough people to make a town! But I’m glad that your family is able to do that. Have fun with your new town! 🙂

  • OLIVIA : ) on August 21st, 2009 - 3:46pm


    Original Joe, Well, actually our town should be called, Kids(+DAD and teenager) boro.
    The mayor is actually a teenager!
    Lindsey S., I’m sorry you cannot make your own town.
    Maybe you could do it with your friends?

  • michelle on August 23rd, 2009 - 3:08pm


    I’m Olivia : ) sister, and the town is fun! But, the mayor doesn’t want to be mayor anymore…. and its not much fun without her.

    so, its kinda like the whole town never happened.

  • michelle on August 23rd, 2009 - 3:09pm


    sorry, i mean existed . not happened.

  • pj on August 23rd, 2009 - 6:15pm

  • Lisa on September 4th, 2009 - 4:31pm


    I love the tid bits you through in about how you make revisions to your writing, deciding what to keep and what to get rid of. I would love to use a clip from this podcast to remind myself (and my students)how to revise. It’s great to learn about writing that from an expert like Marshal.

  • Cristinia on September 6th, 2009 - 5:20pm



  • a texas girl on September 8th, 2009 - 2:14pm


    “olivia:)” i have seven siblings, so that is a good idea… but, 3 of them are 21, 16, & 14, so i don’t know if that would work for us… (i am almost 13 how old are you?)

  • anonymous on September 13th, 2009 - 5:53pm


    I love kisboro! I wish I was in it. I want to hear more episodes.

  • Olivia : ) on September 19th, 2009 - 1:57pm


    A texas girl, Sorry I haven’t replied.
    I haven’t been here in a while.
    Anyways, I’m ten, almost eleven.
    I have six siblings.
    Yeah, actually the town didn’t work out. It was a little confusing and all. But it’s still fun to read about it.
    So you mom had 8 kids? Wow…

  • Brody on September 27th, 2009 - 1:04pm


    Is there a way you could make kidsboro a virtually game world on the internet?!?!

  • Olivia : ) on September 28th, 2009 - 4:22pm


    Oh, that would be so cool!

  • Elyse on September 30th, 2009 - 4:20pm

    I mean think about it, Connie: (C) “Hi honey” Jason: ( J )”Hi sweetie!” C: “KISS!” J: “KISS!”
    C: I love you honey bunch!!! J: I love you more sweetie pie!
    EWWW!!! And Mr. Whittaker would be connie’s father in law!! That just doesn’t work! She should marry Mitch…

  • Max on October 27th, 2009 - 8:16pm

    PLEASE MAKE MORE KIDSBORO BOOKS! Those books were basically my very first chapter books…. Well, one of them. I STILL LOVE THEM!

  • Michelle on March 11th, 2010 - 6:01pm



  • Olivia :) on April 20th, 2010 - 6:39pm


    PLEASE make more Kidsboro!
    I just re-read the books. I need to see what happens!
    They’re my favorite series. (Or at least one of them… THAT’S for sure).
    Your fans are all counting on you, Marshal Younger. PLEASE make more! I want to see if Ryan (or is that Jim? 😉 ) is ever going to forgive his Dad. I am so sad. Your books are the books which made me a book worm. Now I read all sorts of books.

  • Olivia :) on April 20th, 2010 - 6:42pm


    but I will never forget the Kidsboro series, the series that were so awesome that it makes me want to cry, the series that made you read the next book to see what happened, the series in which leaves us all hanging, wondering what’s going to happen.
    Please make more, Mr. Marshal, we’re all counting on you! I NEED TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS!!
    Olivia smileyface 🙂

  • olivia :) on June 5th, 2010 - 12:05pm


    First of all, where’s Scott? Second, what is with the stink bomb business? I mean, come on! My sister was laughing because it was funny. And she said it was funny because you got it all wrong. I’m kind of disappointed in you guys.

  • olivia :) on June 5th, 2010 - 12:06pm


    Ok, so the audio series aren’t too bad. But it’s just, they’re not like the real books. But a lot of people liked them, besides my sisters and I, so well done.

  • andrew on July 9th, 2010 - 11:33am


    I think kids bro is awsome but Ive only seen 5 episodes but so far its awsome I want to read the books!!

  • kelly on July 9th, 2010 - 11:36am

    I will make more

  • marshal on July 10th, 2010 - 1:28pm

  • andrew on July 10th, 2010 - 1:29pm


    are you really marshal?

  • mashal on July 10th, 2010 - 1:29pm


    yes I gotta go now

  • andrew on July 10th, 2010 - 1:30pm



  • satrianifan on July 20th, 2010 - 9:08am


    I really like the Kidsboro books.It’s so funny in The Creek War when Marcey(i think that’s the banker’s name) is talking about that dream Jill had about Ryan/Jim.I think Jill has a crush on Ryan.And the part where Alice pulls up the support beams in that tent their being held “captive” in. I agree, they should make a Kidsboro computer game. I’m pretty good w/ website design, so I might try to design a Kidsboro video game sometime.

  • satrianifan on July 21st, 2010 - 8:00am


    Anonamous, if you’ve been listening to AIO for 14 years, how old are you? I’m 13 years old and I’ve only been listening for three or four years. Are there any listeners out there that live in Missouri, the Show Me State? That’s where I live.

  • onny on August 13th, 2010 - 9:59am


    I love kidsboro. Their a good story. Ive listend to adventures in odyssey for a long time.

  • onny on August 13th, 2010 - 10:02am


    I love kidsboro they rock. Ive been listing to odyssey along time.

  • ? on November 22nd, 2010 - 4:17pm


    how do i listen to shows on here? i mean like odyssey shows 4 free? please post some!

  • Michelle on January 17th, 2011 - 1:09pm


    Hullooooooo! Nobody hardly every post’s on here. Hey, Marshal, are you REALLY marshal? I mean you spelled Randomly wrong, by the way.
    I know everyone loves the audio series of Kidsboro, but its not the real thing. I mean, like, i know this sounds kind of weird, but the audio series is NOT the real series. If you want to know the real story of Ryan/Jim, then read the four books. They’re the bomb. My oppinion? Much more perfesional then the audio will ever be. By the way, Ryan is only twelve.

  • Michelle on January 17th, 2011 - 1:12pm


    not seventeen-he sounds so much older. And where in the world is his best friend Scott? He’s not even IN the audio series. And why is there the bomb thing? Whaaaaat? What’s up with that?

  • Christopher on March 7th, 2012 - 2:32pm


    Could you make a new kidsboro odyssey story? I realy like to listen to the kidsboro story!

  • Christopher on March 7th, 2012 - 2:59pm


    I wish kidsboro was real! I realy realy do!

  • Christopher on March 7th, 2012 - 3:00pm


    I wish kidsboro was real. I realy realy do!

  • Christopher on March 10th, 2012 - 3:02pm


    I want to make kidsboro!

  • Christopher on March 10th, 2012 - 3:07pm


    Could I have the people that wish kidsboro was real and some
    workers? I want to make my own kidsboro!

  • Blake on March 10th, 2012 - 3:21pm


    My Brother likes Kidsboro to much. (By the way he is Christopher)

  • Blake on March 10th, 2012 - 3:24pm


    Hey Marshal, you forgot to make more Books.

  • Blake on March 10th, 2012 - 3:28pm


    Kidsboro is one of my favorite!!!
