    Dear Paul McCusker,
    As a loyal fan of a few years running here, I know that the show has taken a turn. It’s different. But because I’m such a big fan, I have a question: will Richard Maxwell ever come back? Like EVER? Or will my imagination have to keep running wild with all the ideas I have stored in Word documents on this computer?
    You say there is a mystery story-arc coming up. I’m anxious to see what you have planned. 🙂
    A big fan – Danielle

  • Will on June 30th, 2010 - 7:40pm


    Thanks for telling us the secrets! I’ve been wondering about where Katrina is myself, although I thought she was in Odyssey. I also liked the name of Album 53,”The conspiracy of the green ring.” My sister says it sounds like the name of a “FREAKY book”.

  • winnithepooh on June 30th, 2010 - 8:32pm


    I have to say, i love the question answer podcasts! i cant belive the 100th is so very close! Paul Mckuscker is my favorite writer, thank you for your work with focus and for blessing me with answers to my questions in an email!!!
    god bless,
    winni the pooh <3

  • rose on June 30th, 2010 - 8:46pm


    Thanks for answering all those questions!I myself have one question: In the poster that comes with album 50 “The Best Small Town”, are there more actors/staff hidden besides Walker Edmiston? I thought I found Hal Smith and Dave Arnold, so I was wondering who the other people were. Are you there, Brock?
    Thank you producers for being so awesome by helping make odyssey possible! God bless you!

  • Elijah on June 30th, 2010 - 8:46pm


    This is awesome!

  • Noah on June 30th, 2010 - 9:29pm


    Is it really called the “Green Ring Conspiracy?” That’s a little… interesting…

  • woodstock on June 30th, 2010 - 9:37pm


    is grady comeing back soon ?

  • AE on June 30th, 2010 - 9:46pm


    Love the news! Bring on Catrina and Album 53!

  • Lydia on June 30th, 2010 - 10:10pm


    When I heard them talking about Connie going to college I stopped breathing for a minute, but when they said they would only be references I breathed out and said to my dad “Good thing they didn’t just say that Connie was going to leave or else there would have been a revolt.” The mystery/drama one coming up looks good. Please Odyssey bring back some old characters!

  • Ellis on June 30th, 2010 - 11:13pm


    Wow almost 100 episodes of the podcast! amazing keep up the fun interviews they are so awsome!

  • Anonymous on July 1st, 2010 - 1:03am


    thank’s guys! 🙂

  • Rebecca on July 1st, 2010 - 1:21am


    That was really good you guys!
    Thanks so much!
    God Bless each and every one of you!

  • brittini on July 1st, 2010 - 6:40am



  • Daniel on July 1st, 2010 - 6:48am


    that is so cool

  • Alaine on July 1st, 2010 - 7:13am


    Did Dave Arnold just say my name?

  • GS on July 1st, 2010 - 7:50am


    Oh well, they didn’t answer any of my questions. I guess I’ll try again.

  • Sarah on July 1st, 2010 - 8:03am


    Yay. A new podcast! I’m thrilled you are making another Story Ark, but I wish the old characters wouild come into in, instead of having the new families in it. Like it would be fine if they had parts and everything but I wish you would include some old characters (which you may still have ???) I’m wrote down the address and I will be working on a letter 🙂 Though I still want to know more about Mitch, thanks for giving a headsup about album 53.

  • Sarah on July 1st, 2010 - 8:07am


    Also though this is a bit off topic I just heard the episode, Something Significant and I loved it! I have heard it several times before. I think you did a fantastic job on it from the unique voices ( I love the variety) and the way you told the story and the lesson learned. I want more of your episodes to be like that. I learned stuff in that episode, the story and also the lesson about even the little stuff is important and it made me want to do “small” stuff. But none of the stuff in album –

  • Sarah on July 1st, 2010 - 8:09am


    Continued…. none of the episodes in album 51 one inspired me like the old episodes. I know that is sad cause you had an episode on Inspiration (and it was good but just a little too bizar for me. 🙂 Something Significant really did inspire me as did MANY other episodes! I love you AIO and I hope more inspiring episodes will be coming out. Sorry this got so long but I so much appreciate you reading it!

  • Hanah on July 1st, 2010 - 8:14am


    woah I totally didnt’ know that was Connie on the cover of album 52. I didn’t recognize her.

  • Ber on July 1st, 2010 - 9:00am


    Happy 100th Birthday!!!!

    How often do you put out new podcasts?

    I wish you would put them out more often.

  • odysseylover on July 1st, 2010 - 9:10am



  • ALBUM51LOVER on July 1st, 2010 - 9:30am


    hi i am so happy i love the podcast 🙂

  • Jess on July 1st, 2010 - 10:06am


    The characters I liked were… um… no offense, but I didn’t like any of them. Matthew, David and Simon were okay, Barret, Eva, Emily and Camilla were okay

  • AioFreak101 on July 1st, 2010 - 10:18am


    This sounds AWESOME

  • AioFreak101 on July 1st, 2010 - 10:19am


    OH MAN! Album number 53 is already getting started! NUMBER 52 ISN”T EVEN OUT YET! AIO IS GROWING UP TO FAST!

  • miss america on July 1st, 2010 - 10:23am


    neato! they responded to my comment I’ve always wanted to be on the AiO podcast! by the way do you like my name?

  • Joe B on July 1st, 2010 - 10:35am


    1. Where is the photo art for album 52?
    2. When does the album release?
    3. Is Mitch ever going to come back for Connie?

    And i’m really glad Katrina is going to come back… I’ve missed her alot.

  • hannah on July 1st, 2010 - 10:37am


    thanks for the shows I’m sure a lot of children listen to it

  • Meg on July 1st, 2010 - 11:04am


    PLEASE bring back some old characters like Mitch, Jared, Mandie, Liz, Trent, the Barkley’s, and more. I like the new episodes OK but hopefully you can kind of combine the old and new.

  • juLIA on July 1st, 2010 - 11:24am



  • Brittany on July 1st, 2010 - 2:19pm


    I loved hearing your answers to these questions. The upcoming episodes sound even better than the ones from Album 51. Can’t wait! I’m really happy to hear that we’ll be hearing from Katrina again. “The Green Ring Conspiracy” sounds like an awesome name for a mystery. Kudos to whoever came up with the name!

  • Trixie on July 1st, 2010 - 2:40pm


    Wow! They used my question and I am totally bouncing off the walls! I am so excited! Thank you guys so much! This means a lot to me. I’m a huge Odyssey fan, and I am bursting from anticipation for the new episodes!

  • odysseyfreak on July 1st, 2010 - 2:45pm


    What is going to happen to Kelly since the Washingtons are gone? Jesse, to find the picture of the cover of album 52 go to whitsendblog/album52.org

  • Marvin on July 1st, 2010 - 3:10pm


    I have a few questions:
    1. Will Mr. Whittaker ever get married?
    2. Will the Album 53 saga be about Novacom?
    3. What new characters will come into Album 52?
    4. Will there be a new contest where fans can send a voice clip?
    5. What does “Cause and Effect” have to do with the album?
    Please choose which ever ones. 🙂

  • Big fan on July 1st, 2010 - 6:45pm


    My two new favorite characters are Vance King, and Jay Smouse. They remind me of Rodney Rathbone, and Rusty Gordon, both of whom I love.

  • XOBEO on July 1st, 2010 - 7:31pm


    Will there be more any episodes in album 52, 53 that are tell more about Whit’s life, like what other things he has dabbled with and maybe an episode about the creation of the Imagination station?

  • XOBEO on July 1st, 2010 - 7:33pm


    BTW I was also wondering if you will have any more contests involving sending in voice clips?

  • XOBEO on July 1st, 2010 - 7:36pm


    ONe more q. Will we hear from Lenord Meltzner again? Will he possibly be involved in a saga?

  • maddie on July 1st, 2010 - 8:57pm


    What will happen to Everett if Leonard dies?

  • molly on July 1st, 2010 - 10:23pm


    Where are the washingtons did they move away or something??

  • pAul on July 2nd, 2010 - 7:51am


    Will Richard Maxwell or Jellyfish be in the new storarc?

  • pAul on July 2nd, 2010 - 7:51am


    Aio rocks!

  • MOLLY on July 2nd, 2010 - 10:07am


    YES YES YES YES YES! Katrina is back! I was so sad when she wasn’t in album 51! And I think she could have been involved with the stories…..like in “For the Birds, her husband is getting attacked by birds all the time, then shaves his head, and she’s not to be seen anywhere? Oh well I’m just happy she’s back! 😀

  • Meg on July 2nd, 2010 - 11:39am


    I love the Adventures in Odyssey Q and A podcasts! I really enjoy listening to them. Will Jason ever come back to Odyssey? Will he ever meet Monica Stone or Tasha again?

  • unsatisfied on July 2nd, 2010 - 12:31pm


    I don’t realy like Album 51 because you took out almost everyone that everyone likes exept Wooton,Eugene,Connie,Whit and a few others.

  • Savannah on July 2nd, 2010 - 2:55pm


    Will Jenny Roberts or the Mulligan family ever return?

  • dAyne on July 2nd, 2010 - 4:15pm


    I was wondering why you had to change the whole show. I meen it just kind of stopped and then it’s all new characters and voices. Nothings like it was.

  • Elissa on July 2nd, 2010 - 4:26pm


    Bob and Jessie,
    Thankyou so much for what you do! I love listening to the podcast! It’s a good day when there is a new podcast!

  • dAyne on July 2nd, 2010 - 4:31pm


    Are any of these character in future episodes?
    Grady and family.
    The Washingtons.
    Liz and Mandy.
    Eugens Dad and his son.

  • A on July 2nd, 2010 - 8:05pm


    another story ark! I thought one would be coming up.=) my favorite was in darkness before dawn. I’ve heard it would be very similar to darkness before dawn. keep it up! =D

  • fumiko on July 2nd, 2010 - 9:22pm


    Wow thanks for all the info! And thanks a lot for actually reading one of my comments on the Podcast! SOO COOL! Oh, And I liked Olivia Parker (She reminds me of myself) and Matthew Parker. It would be great to see more of Olivia’s music interests come into play later (Maybe you can get her to sing a song). Also Matthew sounds really fun with all his electronic gizmos and stuff. And the new Whit is actually really nice! I look forward to the next albums and seeing all your hard work come to life.

  • Jenneniah on July 3rd, 2010 - 5:41pm


    Cool, my question was asked…On here, I go by Jennie or Jenneniah…so, that’s me!

  • Anonymous on July 4th, 2010 - 4:19pm


    This may be out of your line Paul and Dave but I would LOVE it if Connie would get married to someone really special in one of your episodes! PLEASE!
    God Bless you and everyone who runs Adventures in Odyessy!

  • winnithepooh on July 4th, 2010 - 5:03pm


    after giving it some time, i also thought of some questions.
    1.Will there be any art contests in coming months for the new albums?
    2.does the green ring conspiracy have anything to do with the episode On the other side of the glass?if my memory is correct wasnt the name of the town something like greenville or am i just imagining?
    more to come! winni the pooh

  • winnithepooh on July 4th, 2010 - 5:05pm


    3. in the last chance detective series by focus, jason whittaker appears on the show, will any other characters from odyssey appear in other radio dramas such as father gilbert? or vice versa since whit likes to travel? sorry for the 2 posts, i just didnt have enough room! Please consider my questions for future podcasts! god bless you guys! Winnie The Pooh 🙂

  • amy on July 4th, 2010 - 8:10pm


    since you told us to ask can you aline every episode with the bible the ones that mean the most thanks

  • Kirsty on July 5th, 2010 - 4:21am


    Yes, the Queen does still send birthday cards to people when they’re 100 (and every year after that), though their families/friends have to request it.

  • jonny boy on July 5th, 2010 - 6:40am


    Are you going to show us a picture of the bald Eugene when is album 53 coming out ?

  • Katya on July 5th, 2010 - 11:13am


    i love the question answer podcasts! i cant belive the 100th is so very close!
    I know that the show has taken a turn. It’s different. I have a question: will Richard Maxwell ever come back? Like EVER? Oh and will Mr. Wittaker ever get married and by the way how old is he.

  • zack on July 5th, 2010 - 12:27pm


    Will any of the old kids come back? Will Eugene’s Dad and brother ever come back too?


  • curious on July 5th, 2010 - 12:40pm


    Hey I have a question for you. I know that Jason is in hiding. Is there any way that you could envolve more episodes with him in them. I loved the work that he did in 634: “Accidental Dilemma, Part 1″635: “Accidental Dilemma, Part 2”. I also love his character all around. I have grown up listening to Adventures in Odyssey and loved every episode that you have made. Thanks and God bless you and all that you do.

  • anna on July 5th, 2010 - 1:51pm


    what happened to katrinas vioce it’s higher and different not to be rude i like the older katrina better

  • taliyah on July 5th, 2010 - 6:45pm



  • alayna on July 5th, 2010 - 6:54pm


    are you guy’s gonna make a new character that’s Connie’s age? like: new girl comes into town and somehow, they just connect with each other!
    is Connie EVER gonna get married?
    because: Lucy (who is younger than her) is gonna get married in a couple months!
    we all know Trent and Mandy are gonna get married, are y’all gonna tell the story that goes deeper into their relationship?
    I’ll email these questions to y’all so you can answer them. P.S. congrats on 100th podcast. the event is so emotional;(

  • Daragh on July 5th, 2010 - 7:11pm


    The name is ok… not my favourite but OK…
    I would like to see richard maxwell back…
    I would also like to see:
    The whole barcley family come back
    Grady come back
    Kelly come back…
    hmmm who else?
    Actually, I would like to see you do an open casting call across america and Canada… You could send out scripts and people could record them and send them in:)

  • connierocks on July 5th, 2010 - 8:09pm


    I like abulita!!!!;)

  • L.A.Reynolds on July 5th, 2010 - 8:20pm


    I’m still wondering if Mitch and Jason are coming back. Please answer. I really want to know. And i am looking forward to album 52.
    I love to listen every day on line!!!! Thanks for all your hard work!!! 🙂
    Thanks!!! 🙂

  • anonomus on July 6th, 2010 - 5:22am


    I love your shows! I wish your website would work, though. I listen to your shows every single day of the month! But for some reason, your website won’t work! I do love your shows so much, YOU ARE AWSOME!!!:D

    Sighned your’s truly, anonomus..

  • anonomus on July 6th, 2010 - 5:25am


    How did you make the imagionation station sound so….REAL?

  • Elissa on July 6th, 2010 - 11:25am


    Happy 100th birthday Odyssey! I’ve been a fan for many many years. Odyssey is my favorite drama BY FAR! I love what you guys are doing! You have blessed many peoples lives through Odyssey. It’s an odd day if I don’t listen to multiple Odysseys.

  • Savannah on July 6th, 2010 - 4:14pm


    I agree with Daragh. I would like to see an open casting call. It would be awesome! I’ve always wanted to be on the show!

  • Gabi on July 6th, 2010 - 4:52pm


    Are Jason, Mitch, Lenard, or Everett ever going to come back? Is Wooton going to be in albums 52 or 53?

  • odysseyfreak on July 6th, 2010 - 6:46pm


    hey, elissa, my sister would listen to a whole collection in a whole day if my mom would let her… even episodes that we’ve heard hundreds of times! so in my home, it is a strange day if we don’t listen to at least five aio episodes.

  • lecrae fan on July 6th, 2010 - 7:49pm


    I don’t know if I want Connie to get married. Wooton needs to find someone to marry who is a Christian and just like him (like in the one episode, only better.)

  • lecrae fan on July 6th, 2010 - 7:57pm


    What happened to the summer contests/reading programs? Did you run out of ideas? My library doesn’t have any reading programs.

  • ZACK on July 6th, 2010 - 8:08pm


    Happy 100th podcast!! I really like the odyssey podcast and I’v heard almost all of them. I hope you keep making more,

    Zack 🙂

  • odysseylover on July 7th, 2010 - 9:33am


    I have 2 questions. Is Mitch ever coming back? and Are Alex and Call ever coming back.

    Ilove your show keep up the good work!

    P.S. If u ever redo the characters again my whole family agrees that Connie should have blond hair, Eugene should look geeky again and Wooton should be fat.

  • jose on July 7th, 2010 - 11:03am


    Is there going to be anymore podcast featuring Regis Blackqaard and Richard Maxwell reuniting? happy 100 birthday.I listen to you everyday in my room are there any new characters in issue22 or 23 your the best!

  • justin b on July 7th, 2010 - 12:36pm


    wow! that’s cool.and happy 100th birthday,my friend told me about you guys.

  • hannah d on July 7th, 2010 - 12:54pm


    can you bring back Lenard and Everett back i want to hear more from Everett he was only in like 3 episodes
    and can you bring Jason back i know he “died” but you can put him in another country or something

  • Anonymous on July 7th, 2010 - 1:05pm


    when will Mitch, Grady and his family, Lenard and his son come back. I realy miss them. The new charactures aren’t as good as the old ones to me so I hope you can bring than back soon:) I’m excited about the new mistery.

  • Sage on July 7th, 2010 - 1:37pm


    I love Odyssey! The new characters are not as good as the old ones, but I still like Odyssey…

  • Elissa on July 7th, 2010 - 2:32pm


    I agree the name isn’t great

  • Noah on July 7th, 2010 - 4:55pm


    just sent off my birthday card… with “50 reasons why i love the AIO podcast”.

  • andrea g on July 7th, 2010 - 6:48pm


    What Savannah said. What about the Mulligans? They were a neat family. (And I only found out about 2 years ago that Bill Myers does the voice of Mike. One of my favorite earthly authors.)

  • andrea g on July 7th, 2010 - 7:02pm


    I like Mr. and Mrs. Parker. (Their kids are a bit annoying, though, particularly Olivia – too high-strung.) Abuelita was cool, too. I thought Emily Jones was kind of annoying, a bit too much of the know-it-all-I’m-better-than-you-I’m-never-wrong kind of person in her. I did like her dad, though.

  • andrea g on July 7th, 2010 - 7:22pm


    Exactly how old is Connie??? Does she stay a teenager forever while everyone around her ages? She should be around her mid-twenties by now. In “The Very Best of Friends”, she was 15 or 16, right? (Couldn’t be much older, because she graduates from high school 24 albums later.) In that episode, Jimmy and Donna are still in elementary school. Could’ve been in 5th grade, I suppose, but they’d still be pretty young, about 10 or 11. ***

  • andrea g on July 7th, 2010 - 7:23pm


    In “The Triangled Web”, Jack and Lucy had been in college for 3 or 4 years already, and it would take about 10 or 11 years to get there from the 5th grade (Jack was about the same age as Donna, so they couldn’t have been more than a year apart in school, if they weren’t in the same grade.) So, add those 10-11 years to Connie’s 15 or 16 from “The Very Best of Friends”, and you have 25-27 years.

  • andrea g on July 7th, 2010 - 7:23pm


    ***continued again…

    …Unless the white birds brought her a fireberry every night like they did to Ramandu…

    Do you have any specific age for her, or even an age range within 5 years?

  • leah on July 7th, 2010 - 10:12pm


    I love adventures in Odyssey we have all 51 albums.

  • Elijah on July 8th, 2010 - 7:15am


    Will Grady be on album 52 or 53?

  • Josiah on July 8th, 2010 - 8:34am


    this is so cool

  • odysseyfreak on July 8th, 2010 - 9:40am


    andrea g, you are so right! i posted something like what you did on some other podcast. connie’s age is soooo messed up. i mean 24 albums later she’s barely a year older? katie doesn’t have to change her voice, but connie should be getting older at least.

  • Sawyer on July 8th, 2010 - 1:23pm


    Is Mitch coming back??? And why is the name the conspiracy of the green ring???!!

  • Savannah #2 on July 8th, 2010 - 1:32pm


    I must say, I love Odyssey, and I have for years! 13 years to be exact, but I was extremely disappointed in album 51. I don’t like any of the new characters, they all sound identical, and their “humor” seems very forced, over done, and well, like they are acting! One of the tradmarks of AIO is how well the writers and actors do of NOT sounding like they are acting. 9 times out of 10 the episodes feel like real circumstances, people etc. And everyone loves AIO for it. They “show” not “tell”……

  • Savannah #2 on July 8th, 2010 - 1:35pm


    treating us listeners like we are really there, a part of the life in Odyssey.

    I do not fault anyone at AIO, I just feel like it’s been so much better than Album 51. I still listened to it, and enjoyed select parts, (the new Whit for example, it’s hard to replace a beloved character, and I was as worried as the next fan, but I have been pleasently surprised. I will get used to Andre’s voice like we did with Paul’s before.)

    Another thing I noticed…..

  • Savannah #2 on July 8th, 2010 - 1:38pm


    Was the fact that Connie, Eugene and Wooten appeared to be, for lack of a better term, “token” characters. Just showing up enough in the episodes to say they’re in Album 51, but not taking on their former places as the focus of many episodes. I think that instead of adding all the new families, I would have perfered the AIO team just stick to stories about Whit, Bernard, Connie, Eugene, Wooten and other “old” characters.

    I also would like to point out for the AIO staff….

  • Savannah #2 on July 8th, 2010 - 3:21pm


    Sorry for the delay in finishing my post!

    I also wanted to point out to the AIO staff that all the newest character editions to AIO are either really young sounding kids, or their parents. There are no youth! That is one thing I loved about the last AIO families. You had young 8-10ish Grady and Sam McKay, and then you had Mandy, Trent and Liz about 14-15 or so, and then you had Tamika and Marvin who, correct me if I’m wrong, were in between Mandy and Co. and Grady……

  • Savannah #2 on July 8th, 2010 - 3:26pm


    I like the age range previously in AIO episodes. Personally, I am 17 and homeschooled. I understand you not wanting to dive into “teen” issues in a Family program, (I wouldn’t want to have to listen to “dating” troubles or anything like that, not that I’m opposed to “seeing” how Mandie and Trent finally get married!) but it would be nice to have someone older than Emily Parker as a kid on the show.

    I suggest you transfer over the Kidsboro characters into the AIO world like you had mentioned..

  • Savannah #2 on July 8th, 2010 - 3:29pm


    Anyway… despite my long discourse, I must end on a positive note… I love AIO and will still faithfully listen no matter what you guys come up with next. God has used your show to impact me and many other families all across America. Continue to keep up the good work and fight the good fight!

  • isabel on July 8th, 2010 - 3:39pm


    I wonder if Eugene and Katrina will have and kids 🙂

  • J.R.C on July 8th, 2010 - 6:08pm


    This SO cool!!

    Camilla Parker is so much like my sister! Several years ago, my sister stuffed her dirty clothes under her bed, and when I asked her why they were under there, she said, “Where else am I supposed to put them?” just like Camilla!

  • Elizabeth on July 8th, 2010 - 6:30pm


    You could do more of Jason’s adventures by having him thell the Whit’s End gang some of them!

  • jESSE on July 10th, 2010 - 11:09am


    For an anniversery of Odyssey, can you make new episodes, that are in the time period of jared, or jimmy, or trent, because they all grew up, and their in their twenties.
    P.S. How come Connie is now in college, and some ccharacters who are younger than her, are out of college, isn’t that kind of weird?

  • jESSE on July 10th, 2010 - 11:12am


    I agree with you OdysseyFreak, I also listen to about five or six episodes a day!

  • jESSE on July 10th, 2010 - 11:20am


    what about monte and jennifer,whit’s grand children, will they ever come back?
    P.S. in whit’s family in every generation, there is a jennie, whit’s wife, daughter, and grand daughter are all named jennie, is that because she died, and to show love they named them jennie?

  • MJ on July 10th, 2010 - 6:02pm


    Was Regis Blackgard the chairman of novacom?

    Why are the imagination station plans always getting stolen?

  • Jacob on July 10th, 2010 - 7:34pm


    Awesome podcast!
    I am so excited about album 52 and 53.
    But I have a question: Will we still see some old characters like Mandy, Jared and Aubrey???
    Please answer!!!

  • Melinda on July 11th, 2010 - 6:47pm


    I agree with whoever said it. I really want Mitch to come back!!! And even if it’s not to him, Connie should get married.

  • Zoe z on July 11th, 2010 - 7:58pm


    is mich ever coming back to odyssey?

  • brent on July 12th, 2010 - 12:41am

  • Dave on July 12th, 2010 - 4:15pm

  • lecrae fan on July 12th, 2010 - 4:31pm


    How old is Trent supposed to be?

  • Emmy on July 12th, 2010 - 7:00pm


    I agree with Danielle,
    you HAVE to get Richard Maxwell back onto the show!!!

  • anna j. on July 13th, 2010 - 7:07am


    This morning,I was listening to Adventures in Odyssey on my computer,I saw a podcast of a roadtrip to Odyssey,and I was thrilled!I told mom about it but since she was half-awake she didn’t listen much,I really want to there someday.

  • Jenneniah on July 13th, 2010 - 8:27am


    @Brent I agree! I never thought to ask though. My sister and I have that question going through our heads a lot!

    Nathan? Marshall? Anyone? Who is the pastor now?

  • Jamie on July 14th, 2010 - 9:02am


    Hey Paul! I think an interview with Nathan Carlson would be a great idea! I really miss his character Richard Maxwell and there could be a lot more exciting episodes with him coming back to Odyessy!

    P.S Why did Jack marry Lucy? Besides the fact that thier voice actors are married in real life. Jack liked Donna and Lucy liked Richard Maxwell. Oh and how far apart are Lucy and Richard in age? Please have Richard Maxwell come back to Odyssey!!


  • Rebecca on July 14th, 2010 - 9:05am



  • dAMON on July 14th, 2010 - 4:21pm

  • dAMON on July 14th, 2010 - 4:27pm


    Hey Brock do you realy want those macadanium nut cookies you asked for when Bob and Jessie were chasing you to get back the video camera? Or was it just a joke.

  • dAMON on July 14th, 2010 - 4:32pm


    will wooton ever get maried please ask this question on your next podcast.

    thanks for all of the hard work you went through to make AIO such a big success.

  • hannah d on July 15th, 2010 - 6:34am


    they said my name!
    im gonna but a D at the end now so it can be more specific

  • Biggest fan! on July 15th, 2010 - 9:27pm


    The Green Ring Conspiracy sounds awsome! If it is anything like Darkness Before Dawn or the Novacom Saga, I am excited! Also, I am so glad to hear the news about the older characters coming back! I also LOVE the new characters, especially Emily Jones and Olivia Parker.
    Thanks for making AIO. I have listened to, and memorized pretty much every episode. I can quote Slumber Party word for word!My friends and I listen all the time! Keep up the ggod work! Hopefully Odyssey will stay around forever!

  • Dan on July 16th, 2010 - 7:55pm


    Thank God and thank you for the 22 years you have been running this series, it bettered and is still bettering my life and I have been listening ever since I was 5 years old. I love Adventures in Odyssey and I always pray that this series will continue even until I have children.

  • Abbie on July 16th, 2010 - 9:31pm


    i so agree with Lydia! wen i heard about that, i wuz talking to my bro, and as soon as he said that, i jumped and almost stopped breathing! (ok that wuz a joke, but it felt like that!) my brother got really annoyed, cuz he’s little and has no idea what the whole point is! Savannah “2, I fully agree wit u! I am 13, which is a long way away from u, but i really agree! and as my ending statement (yes, i was exaggerating, but will not in my next question)

  • katie on July 17th, 2010 - 1:56pm


    thats a interesting name for the new album.

  • Kelsey11 on July 17th, 2010 - 3:05pm


    I am ready for the next album , bring it on;);)
    I also really miss Mandy and Liz, and not to be rude, but out of all the new characters i only liked Camilla she is totally just like me, other than that i am way older. I love soccer to death. are you ever going to have an episode where we hear about one of Camilla’s games where she learns that the game is not a one man or in this case girl show. That would be really great. Thanks for taking the time to listen to us all, and answer all of us! :):)

  • Stevie on July 18th, 2010 - 10:03am

  • kaelyn on July 18th, 2010 - 4:41pm


    happy birthday Odyyssey me and my family think
    you guys do a great job
    keep up the good work!

  • ANONYMOUS on July 18th, 2010 - 7:04pm


    My family and I really miss the way Odyssey used to be. We find that the new characters aren’t very interesting and the story lines don’t grasp our attention like they used to. We are HUGE Odyssey fans and we listen to them over and over again. We miss families such as the Washington’s and other notable characters like Bernard, Wooten, Rodney, Jason, etc. Will any of them be returning? We appreciate what you guys are doing but it is not up to the usual high standards we have come to expect.

  • HUSKYGIRLUSA on July 19th, 2010 - 9:35am


    Maybe Connie turns a month older ever few months, and turns one year older every couple of years. Maybe?? That’s I answer this, without banging my head trying to figure out how Connie ages.

  • Jamie on July 19th, 2010 - 3:55pm


    are Nick Mulligan,Lisa Mulligan,Mandy Strausberg,Liz Horton,Trent DeWhite, EVER coming back to Odyssey!?!!

    I wont know what to do if they dont come back! Please try to get them to come back! waahh…

  • MJ on July 20th, 2010 - 11:11am


    will there ever be any games on whitsend.org ?

  • David on July 20th, 2010 - 11:12am


    If you guys are doing a mystery series, it is not going to fly without old the characters from 2000-2008.

  • Chrissy on July 20th, 2010 - 2:20pm



  • zIAnna on July 20th, 2010 - 2:37pm

  • isabel on July 20th, 2010 - 3:45pm


    Hey Stevie! I’m a big odyssey fan to! 🙂 😉 we have I think I’m not sure but I think we have almost all of them! 😉

  • mabel on July 21st, 2010 - 12:28pm


    Thank you for answering the questions! It was very informative. 🙂 New minor characters that I like are Mortimer (from “The Inspiration Station”) and the Coach (from “Target of the Week”).

  • Stevie on July 21st, 2010 - 1:50pm


    Isabel that so rocks, I have a big collection too! What is your favorite Adventure? I love all of them but I really like A Licence To Deprive, i didn’t spell that right did i? The Washingtons are one of my favorite families. So long for now,
    -Stevie a Washington fan and one of A.I.O’s biggest fans

  • Stevie on July 21st, 2010 - 3:04pm


    Happy Birthday guys, this is one of the best podcasts! It inspires me to imagine and to create keep up the good work!:)

  • isabel on July 21st, 2010 - 4:56pm


    Stevie, ALL of them are my favorite! What are your favorite people besides the Washingtons? MIne are Wooton and Mitch! To bad Mitch wen to bootapest how do you spell that? oh well I’l just spell it wrong 🙂

  • isabel on July 22nd, 2010 - 6:52am


    I don’t have one! all of them are my favorites though my favorite people are Wooton and Mitch! Oh Mitch, why did you have to leave Connie, all alone? *sniff* 🙁

  • Anonymous on July 22nd, 2010 - 3:35pm


    that was really cool

  • hks on July 22nd, 2010 - 5:36pm


    the podcast was great but I’m wondering. Why did you change Mr. Whitakers voice I liked the other one better.

  • Stevie on July 23rd, 2010 - 7:07am


    hey Isabel, I like Wooton a lot, then I just cannot get over the character of Whit! Thanks for asking! By the way you spell Budapest this way, it is the capital of hungary, which is in Europe. Who is your favorite writer Isabel?

  • Stevie on July 23rd, 2010 - 8:27am


    I was wondering do we ever get to hear about the new card company that Emily started at the end of “When your Right Your Right”?

  • Elaine on July 23rd, 2010 - 9:05pm


    Sorry, I don’t care for the new Parker family. Kind of boring. Their voices aren’t interesting like the Barkleys voices were. I miss the old characters! There has been too much of a drastic change…doesn’t even seem like AIO anymore.

  • dominique on July 25th, 2010 - 5:07pm


    i love connie?

  • Cassandra on July 25th, 2010 - 6:00pm


    I really think that you should bring Mitch back after being injured and having the FBI send him back or something like that. I think that Connie should get married; it would be great for the show! I also think that Mr. Charles should come back. That would be so cool! I love what you guys did with album 51. I know a lot of people don’t like how it was a bit like a new start, but I like it because I haven’t actually heard all the episodes! Please bring Mitch back, and keep up the good work!

  • Elissa on July 27th, 2010 - 8:22am


    WE WANT THE OLD CHARACTERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Elissa on July 27th, 2010 - 8:23am


    Odyessy isn’t up to it’s usual standards…

  • JAmes on July 29th, 2010 - 2:14am


    Thank you so much for your excellent podcast! I love Adventures in Odyssey and have been listening for 7 years; I’m 18 now. I have a few questions: first of all, what happened to Bernard Walton? Red seems to be a replacement for him, but I never heard what happened to Bernard. Also, what happened to Rodney? Album 51 seemed to neglect some of the previous story lines like Mandy’s family in favor of all-new characters. When can we expect to hear about some of the older characters?

  • sarah on July 29th, 2010 - 8:41am


    Will Connie ever finish her book? Will it ever get pubished?

  • sarah on July 29th, 2010 - 8:48am


    I like the new people in Odyssey but not as much as the old ones. I don’t really like Olivia. Her voice is WAY to light and whining.

  • joel on July 30th, 2010 - 12:12am


    I love this show

  • polly on July 30th, 2010 - 12:48pm


    it would be neat if you could bring Mitch back to odyssey and have a wife and a daughter on the way for Mitch and connie gets really mad. just an idea it would be cool if you changed the odyssey characters back to the way they were cause i dont like the new characters please dont get mad at me im just expressing my feelings plus i love adventures in odyssey and so does my best friend Grace cant wait for more albums i hope there will be a thousand more albums your biggest fans GRACE and POLLY

    God Bless!!!

  • Savannah #2 on August 2nd, 2010 - 1:35pm


    Thanks for all the nice comments guys….

    Good point, James. I didn’t even notice that Bernard was gone. He can’t be off the show! All we have left are Whit, Connie and Eugene. (And Wooten vaguly).

  • Cas on August 2nd, 2010 - 6:20pm


    ‘The Green Ring Conspiracy’. Sounds interesting…but I have to confess that I’ve been a little unimpressed with the latest few episodes. It’s like something’s missing…though that’s probably because so much has been done already. But if at all possible, could you please, please bring Regis Blackgaard and Richard Maxwell back? It would be so simple, and the fans would go wild. Good luck with brainstorming and script writing. God bless.

  • ROBERT E LEE on August 5th, 2010 - 4:29pm


    I have an idea…if the Green Ring involves Novacom, that might bring back Mitch!

    Will Mitch ever show up again in AIO?

  • Ashley on September 18th, 2010 - 11:45am


    I was listening to the Episode V.B.S. Blues and noticed the plot sounded oddly familiar. So here’s my question:

    Was V.B.S. Blues inspired by the book “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever”? I love that book, and the plots were noticeably similar. Thanks, guys! And keep up the great work! 🙂

  • odyssey love on January 15th, 2011 - 9:59pm


    i really like emily jones and mathew parker and there mysteries.

  • korinna on January 30th, 2011 - 6:53pm


    random question, but I’m curious. On the cover of Take it from the Top Eugene has purple eyes, but in the episode where he meets Katrina and they compete on Bart’s new gameshow with Connie the final question for Katrina is the color of Eugene’s eyes. Doesn’t she answer periwinkle blue and get it correct? So what’s with the unrealistic purple eyes?

  • korinna on January 30th, 2011 - 7:03pm


    Also, I have to agree with some of the other comments stating how we miss the old characters. But you’ve done a great job in letting them grow up even though I think you’re losing people with Connie “stuck in time” & everyone else aging. I LOVE the new charcters. The Parker family is great & I’m sure there’ll be a lot of new adventures coming up with the Jones & Parker detective agency too! I do think you should bring the Isrealites back & have another mystery involving the ‘hidden’ tunnel too!!

  • Bringo on February 1st, 2011 - 6:11pm


    well i like these peeps cause they are so cool! The green ring conspiracy. we already like Matthew the best. Right guys?Come on!!!!!!!! you know you want to. Matthew Parker!:)

  • Bringo on February 1st, 2011 - 6:13pm


    Don’t listen to me! That’s a joke! Odessy rules

  • COOlcuz on August 16th, 2019 - 12:41pm


    A birthday card from the queen of England? Her sending cards? Did she really do that? To cool!!! If she still did that, I want to turn 100! Even though by then, there would be a king on throne: Charles, William, or Williams son (who’s sons name I don’t remember)!!!! Wow, that’s weird to think about!!
