    :O I was listening to the podcast, and all of a sudden I hear my question!! (“How has AIO impacted your life, and have you had any life changing experiences while working on the show?”)
    That was so cool!!! Thanks for choosing/answering my question Mr. Arnold and Mr. McCusker!!!
    I love AIO, been listening for practically all my life. Thanks so much for making such an amazing show!! 😀
    P.S. I’m super excited for the new album 🙂

    How come you will not tell us if Mitch is coming back?????

  • Janessa on January 26th, 2011 - 10:47am


    i can’t believe they answered my question!! thank you so much!

  • meme on January 26th, 2011 - 10:54am


    how do you know when they are asking questions ?
    i`m beginning me countdown to Feb 1st !

  • HUGE FAN on January 26th, 2011 - 11:26am


    cool i cant wait until spring.

  • Gabby on January 26th, 2011 - 11:30am


    Will Mitch be in the Green Ring Conspiracy? It sounds like an adventure Mitch would be in. He can meet Connie but they can just be good friends 🙂 Also, is Rodney going to be in album 53?

  • CHristian a. on January 26th, 2011 - 11:48am


    Is anyone else having a problem listening to the podcast past 13:32? I am!

  • Hannah on January 26th, 2011 - 12:09pm


    This was a great podcast! I can’t wait to hear the Green Ring Conspiracy!
    My favorite new characters are the Parker family. 🙂
    Keep up the good work!

    Katrina coming back? that sounds great

  • Hoosier on January 26th, 2011 - 12:36pm


    I don’t have high speed internet right now though, so I probably can’t download it today though. 🙁

  • Tanner on January 26th, 2011 - 12:38pm


    Will there ever be an anymore references to The Andy Griffith Show? You know, like in ” Blackbeards Treasure”
    Sheriff Randy and deputy Arney LoL!!!

    My Theory About “Stilleto”

    So, there has been a lot of secrecy about the identity of the bad guy “Stilleto”. Is he Dr. Blackgaard? Did he survive the explosion underneath Whit’s End? Is it some one else? Well, let’s look at some of the information we have:

    1. We know this guy from previous episodes*

    2. He was thought to have died years ago**

    3. Nobody’s ever seen him**

    Is it Dr. Blackgaard?
    1., Yes, he was in several previous episodes

  • cAITIE on January 26th, 2011 - 12:46pm


    Hello again,Im a little bummed ’cause they didn’t answer my question. Anyway, I’m just posting to answer the Producers request about the new characters!I can honestly say i dont really like the new characters.I’m not connecting with them like i did with the old characters. The old characters i would LOVE to have back is Mitch,Richard Maxwell,Mycays,Kelly and the Washingtons,Bernard Walton, Rodney and Bart Rathbone. And a bunch more… haha :D. THANKS! Looking forward for the upcoming albums!

  • Odysseyfan#1 on January 26th, 2011 - 12:47pm


    My Theory About “Stilleto” 2

    2.,yes,they thought he died beneath Whit’s End

    3.,No… Hmm? Nobody’s ever seen him? That doesn’t fit Dr. Blackgaard at all. Many people have seen him. So Dr. Blackgaard doesn’t fit that.

    Is it Richard Maxwell?
    1., yes
    2., No, he never died… That we KNOW of…
    3., No, he was seen

    So that doesn’t fit either

    Could it maybe be the Chairman from Novacom? As you may recall, he never did get captured in the Novacom Saga.

  • Odysseyfan#1 on January 26th, 2011 - 12:52pm


    My Theory About “Stilleto” 3

    And I quote the Chairman, “It’s over… For now…”***
    And nothing ever came of the “For now…” I had a distinct feeling the Novacom Chairman wasn’t done yet. So… how does he line up with our clues?

    1., Yes, he appeared in the novacom saga
    2., No, but this could have been something that happened after the Novacom saga.
    3., Yes! He kept hidden, and never was revealed to the public, and it is quite possible Mr. Charles never met the chairman face to face CONTINUED

  • Odysseyfan#1 on January 26th, 2011 - 12:56pm


    My Theory About “Stilleto” 4

    So, it is quite possible it could be the Chairman. But another thing to consider is that in the January 26th edition of the Official Adventures in Odyssey Podcast, Paul McCusker didn’t just say “no” to “is it Dr. Blackgaard?” This could be a hint that it is. What did he say about it? “I think we’re going to have to listen to find out.”* That might be a subtle hint that it is indeed Dr. Blackgaard.

  • Odysseyfan#1 on January 26th, 2011 - 1:00pm


    My Theory About “Stilleto” 5

    But one last thing comes to mind, and that is what Mr. Whittaker once said, “Yes. Dr. Regis is finally, really, and truly dead.”**** It seems they closed him out. Blackgaard is gone in my mind, and I really think it would be best if they put him to rest. My personal theory is “Stilleto” is the Chairman. It just seems to make the most sense. But, you never know. Write me, and let me know you opinions. I’m anxious to hear!

  • nathan on January 26th, 2011 - 1:43pm


    My absolute favorite new character is Ryan, because he is kind of a leader. And I also like mathew parker. My least favorite is well, I like them all. I really miss
    Alex Jefferson, please bring him back.

  • Starflyr on January 26th, 2011 - 1:55pm


    Is Katrina going to come back?

  • JAGUAR J on January 26th, 2011 - 2:22pm


    It’s hard to pick a favorite. I like Matthew, and the whole Parker family in general. Emily is an engaging character, but sometimes I want to punch her really hard to be quite honest (that wouldn’t help I know) it’s just the way she treats Matthew sometimes. but I am glad you’re dealing with those issues because there really are people like Emily out there. I think of the old characters I’ve missed Jason the most, though Dr. Blackgaard inspired me to do low voices, but I figured he was completed

  • Anonymous on January 26th, 2011 - 2:27pm


    stiletto isnt blackgaard. in one podcast they said he was never coming back

  • Caleb on January 26th, 2011 - 3:18pm


    I got the First comment!

  • Guineapigman on January 26th, 2011 - 3:43pm


    Great Podcast guys!! I loved it. I wish they would have ansered my question though. 🙁

  • loveaio on January 26th, 2011 - 3:44pm


    Dear AIO,
    Well as for the old people: Bernard, Grady, and the Real Bart, Jason, and most of all probably the Washingtons + Kelly. Loved the washingtons and think their kids could be friends with the Parkers. Marvin and Matthew? Tamika and Camilla?
    New people I don’t like: Probably Barett, Emily Jones
    New People I like: Have to be Matthew, and Mrs. Parker.

  • Kat on January 26th, 2011 - 3:55pm


    Hahaha a ‘stilleto’ is a type of knife.That’s a great name for a criminal! I love all the mystery episodes that Odyssey has been doing. Can’t wait for the Green Ring Conspiracy.

  • Liana on January 26th, 2011 - 4:15pm


    I love this podcast.
    Ya’ll answered a lot of my Questions.

  • johnathan on January 26th, 2011 - 4:23pm


    I would like Jason Whittaker, Alex Jefferson,Mandy Straussberg, Liz Horton, Jared and Trent Dewhite,Rodney Rathbone back.I enjoyed Matthew in the Mystery of the Clock Tower. I dislike the new Mr.Whittaker i rather have him leave for awhile like in the years past.

  • Stevie on January 26th, 2011 - 4:27pm


    Ow WOW I got on!!!!!! YES!

  • aio fan on January 26th, 2011 - 7:32pm


    Is it just me, or were Paul McCuscker and Dave Arnold a little edgy when asked about Richard Maxwell and Doctor Blakcgaard?

  • Maura on January 26th, 2011 - 7:40pm


    I want Bernard back. Will he come back??

  • hannah h on January 26th, 2011 - 8:49pm


    hey odyssey my name is hannah and me and my 7 younger sisters and brothers (and mom and dad) LOVE odyssey! we all love bernard and we are wondering if he is going to be in the *new* odyssey?? my least fav. is Mis.parker and camila but my fav. new actor is Jay! 🙂 and my brothers and sisters all agree! 🙂 you all do such a great job and i dont know what i would do without odyssey! i listen to at least 1-2 episodes a day!

    Yes! It’s finally here! I’m going to listen to right now! 😀

  • daniel on January 26th, 2011 - 10:20pm


    My least favorite character is Emily Jones. Her character seems to change from episode to episode. In stage fright Emily seems to be a brave detective while Matthew seems to be a cowering wimp. In square one Emily seems to be a bully of sorts while Matthew is the level headed one.
    P.S. This is only my opinion so don’t get mad at me

  • fumiko on January 26th, 2011 - 10:30pm


    I think that’s a good idea to make it part 1, part 2, part 3, etc. It’s simpler to keep track of. It would be really cool to meet Whit and go to Odyssey in real life. I can hardly wait till February 1st, The Avery Awards podcast… AND, the new album… Not to mention the interview with that Megamind person, the name escapes me though… Oh! and I’m glad Bob is feeling better, Being sick is no fun.

  • JoethePlMer on January 26th, 2011 - 10:53pm


    Awsome, i can’t wait for album 53!!!! I know the staleto isn’t Regis Blackgaard because a few podcasts back you said he was never coming back to Odyssey. so it must be….My favorite charactor is Matthew & my least favorite charactor is probubly Barret. I think you should bring Bernard Walton back. Glad your feelin’ better Bob!!! YurBIGGESTaioFan, “Joe the Plumber”

  • Zoey on January 26th, 2011 - 11:15pm


    Why did you create Mrs.Sutton? She’s so sappy. Ick! She always at Whitsend following Mr. Whittaker around.

  • Lucy on January 27th, 2011 - 12:23am


    My favorite character now is Olivia Parker
    My least favorite is Emily Jones
    The character i would like back would be Mandy and Alex

  • Lucy on January 27th, 2011 - 12:33am


    I would also like Richard Maxwell and Glossman back.

  • brittini on January 27th, 2011 - 8:48am

    New characters I like:

  • Luke T. on January 27th, 2011 - 8:48am


    Well I am glad to hear Katrina will be back. My brain is trying to figure out who the Stilletto is… could it be Mitch? or Jason? Talk to ya later -Luke T.-

    Is the ‘ring’ in “The Green Ring Conspiracy” a piece of jewelry or a type of gang?

  • Maddy on January 27th, 2011 - 5:03pm


    My favorite new character??? Hmmm…. Matthew Parker. Least favorite: Olivia Parker. She can be fixed though, just make her whine less! Characters I want to see come back: Richard Maxwell! (someone needs to start a fan club or something) and Bernard Walton. Thanks for the answers Paul and Dave!

  • lilianatita on January 27th, 2011 - 5:31pm



  • Anna on January 27th, 2011 - 5:47pm


    when is katrina coming back if she is when is she coming back and are you going to intoduce her brothers anytime

  • Ann on January 27th, 2011 - 5:50pm


    I like Emily Jones and Mathew Parker’s mysteries and their characters best(so far).
    I miss Bernard, Tom Riley,and Whooton the most. I also miss everyone else too(especially Paul Herlinger as Whit)! I would also REALLY like it if Mitch could come back! Will Eugene and Katrina have kids? Will Connie ever get married?
    Thanks! I know your doing your best with who and what you have but I miss the old Odyssey that I grew up to (I’ve listened for about 15 years, I’m almost 16).
    I Love Odyssey!

  • Dax on January 27th, 2011 - 6:00pm


    The Green Ring Conspiracy sounds AWESOME!!!!

  • Rock-o-ages on January 27th, 2011 - 6:03pm



    Okay, so I’ll just say here that Emily Jones is my favorite character by far! 😀 Shes funny and it’s nice to have a kid detective around Odyssey now. 🙂
    My least favorite? Probably Red. Never really got into him as much as Wooton or Brenard, but mabye over time I will.

    And I feel just like you Dave! I can’t imagine my life without AIO! 🙂

    Keep up the great work everyone! 😀

  • jamie on January 27th, 2011 - 7:10pm


    Hey odyssey,
    my name is Jamie Clinton and you said to tell you some stuff, Well i cant write you so is it okay if i do it on here? Uh, you asked who we liked best, I think Mr. Parker is awsome! I don’t like the new bully….i know no one likes bully’s but i mean just on the show in jeneral. And you asked who we’d like back on the show, I am down on my knee’s begging that you’ll bring back Mitch! And i really miss Jason, and the washington family! They were so great!Please bring them back! Thanx

    i like it. it sounds very cool. i think mitch should come back. in his last episode he leaves for buddahpest and says he’l be gone for ex amount of years. he should come back as a secret agent on the green ring conspiracy.

  • arom a. on January 28th, 2011 - 7:25pm


    Is the Stilleto Richard Maxwell from the Blackgaard saga or Mr. Bennett Charles from the Novacom saga? Isn’t time Mr. Charles has gotten out of Jail?

  • arom a. on January 28th, 2011 - 8:24pm


    Is it possible that the whiperer from album 50 could be Stilleto?

  • Joe B on January 28th, 2011 - 8:32pm


    Can’t wait for the green Ring Conspiricy to start. I also can’t wait for some of the old characters to return. My favorite new character is probably Ryan… but i guess he’s not that new.

    I would have to say that some of my old favorites is Mandy Strausberg, Bernard Walton, and Mitch (who you all claim isn’t comming back) 🙁

  • Anonymous on January 28th, 2011 - 11:08pm

  • megan on January 29th, 2011 - 8:20am


    I still don’t understand why the “New Whit”, Andre Stojka, has such a different sounding voice than the other actors that have played Whit. Especially when in interviews Andre’s normal voice sounds just like a mixture of Paul Herlinger and Hal Smith. Why change the sound of such an established character?

  • Noel on January 29th, 2011 - 11:12am


    I think they should come up with a family that gets along and doesn’t fight all the time. The Parkers aren’t exactly the best role models for siblings.

  • caitie on January 29th, 2011 - 11:46am


    Hello again,Im a little bummed that my question didnt get picked.. but I’m ok now!LOL :D. anyway the new characters i really don’t connect with them like i did with the old ones.But i have to say i did like Matthew in the Mystery of the Clock Tower. I would like to ask to have Mitch,Richard Maxwell, Mandy Straussberg, Liz Horton, Jared and Trent Dewhite, Rodney rathbone, and Kelly and the Washingtons back PRETTY,PRETTY PLEASE!

I origanaly wanted my name to be “Sparky the Happy Giraffe” as a refrence to Mitch’s alternitive IM username, It didn’t fit, so I used Miss America because My good friend and I had our dance recital last june and the theme was “What I Wanna be When I Grow up,” and her class was “Miss America.” there were several girls and one boy in the class so he got to be the host and the girls were different states. my friend was New york, our home state. she gave me her costume.

  • James on January 29th, 2011 - 8:50pm


    I know all the answers yes i know who the Stilletto is “i never would have guessed that the infamous Stilleto is relly…” lissn to the episod were you find out who the Stilleto is and let me know what you think i would let you know who he is but i can’t spoill it for you

  • Kenny on January 30th, 2011 - 3:38pm


    Good podcast. I noticed the similarity between the Lamplighters and the Inspiration station the first time I heard Lamplighters 2 days ago.

    I highly doubt that the Stilletto is Dr. Blackard.
    In the Novacom interviews Paul McCusker said that “We should let go of Blackard, let him be dead and not bring him back again.” Paul said that he did not like the idea of “perpetuation of evil” (evil guys who keep coming back to life even after they’ve been destroyed)

    Love the show. Thanks for the podcast

  • CATERINA on January 30th, 2011 - 5:34pm


    Can Mitch Please come back? It has been over eight Odyssey years! Shouldn’t he be done with training by now? What is happening with Dan Isidro?Do you have the same AIO adventures that I know from
    the radio written down in book format?( I would like to know because I am currently writting down Whits flop and I am just now on the third track) What did you do with all the episodes you don’t play any more like the Telltale Cat, Sticks and Stones,and Career Moves? Do you still play Family Portriats

  • becca on January 31st, 2011 - 3:51pm


    I was wondering what has happened to Kelly the one the Washington’s were fostering? I do not like David Parker and I think that Emily’s father is to care free because it seems that his kids do not have a lot of respect for him. I also want to know why in the stories it seems that Whit is only shown when a problem has happened and the Parker’s are telling Whit what has happened? I do like Jay as my favorite new character so far.

  • Anonymous on January 31st, 2011 - 4:32pm


    I think it is so cool that they are coming out with more mystery stories!I can’t wait till there air it!

  • Kelly on January 31st, 2011 - 4:35pm


    My favorite old character that I would like you to bring back? Let me think… Bernard Walton! Without a doubt the best thing to happen to Odyssey since “Connie Comes to Town”!!

  • winnithepooh on January 31st, 2011 - 5:09pm


    Im very excited for “The Green Ring Conspiracy”, The novacom and blaggard sagas are my most favorite episodes and I hope to include this saga too! Katrina coming back will be very sweet as well. Where did everyone here about the stiletto? This is the first ive heard, and wuold like to listen to the origninal clues about the charater..thanks!
    My favorite new charater:Emily Jones 🙂
    Character id like to hear again: Jason, my most favorite haracter ever!!
    Thanks everyone at aio!!

    LOVE IT! I have to say that my favorite new character is Ryan, my least favorite is Amber, and the thing that I miss most is Mr.Whittaker. I really miss the old Whit’s voice. I also really miss Jared, he is one of my favorite characters!
    I am really glad that Katrina is coming back, I thought it was kinda weird to have so much of Eugene and not anything of her.

  • Miriam on January 31st, 2011 - 6:12pm


    Greetings from CANADA! I have listed to Lamplighter theater for about 1-2 years and did not really see a lot of similarity between that and the inspiration station. They are like two totally different worlds almost, Lamplighter is directed towards a slightly older audience as well, but I love both!

  • Anonymous on January 31st, 2011 - 7:56pm

    Hey Odysseyfan#1
    in one of your theory comment above, you said Richard Maxwell never died. He did jump out of a moving car and roll down a steep embankment and they thought he was dead.
    Just though I’d mention that

  • Xandy on February 1st, 2011 - 8:06am


    Hiya kiddo!
    Me and my sister like Ryan the most in the new characters,
    And we don’t really like Emily, I have to agree with Jaguar J ” Sometime 1 want to punch her…” She seems way too bossy and she isn’t very thoughtful about other peoples feelings. Makes you feel kinda sorry for Matthew. Anyways our favorite old character is Richard Maxwell, We have like all the episodes he’s in… excepting ‘Encounter with Mrs. Hooper’. I really hope you bring Richard Maxwell back! Please!

    I am to excited for this new album, I love it when you guys make Odysseys about the CIA or FBI and the Secret Services! I have lots of brothers that are excited about it too. I love it when Connie is in a show, Jason too. Thanks for creating a radio show for us kids to listen to for free! Love how you guys can always make the show have to do with something in the bible.

  • zawicki1 on February 1st, 2011 - 10:00am


    🙂 I was listening to an advertisement on the player on here and heard that someone returned to Odyssey. It was SOOOO obvious it was Jason. And I went here and I got it confirmed 🙂

    Least Fav New charecters
    Emily (The irony, that’s my name.)
    Camilla (she could have great potential though.)

    fav Kidsburo chareters

    least fav kidsburo kids
    Pete (Why is his voice different? there is no way that’s just the actor’s voice changing!)

  • Faith on February 1st, 2011 - 2:48pm


    Awwwww, I thought it was going to be like Novacom. 🙁 Well, I bet it’ll still be good 🙂
    Well, I’d have to say the new Whit is my least favorite new character. No offense to Andre, but he’s my least favorite character in AIO ever. It just doesn’t feel like AIO with all the new characters. And I agree with Miss America.. I don’t get why Pete’s voice is different….
    Please have more intense mysteries!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I agree, I think staleto is Jason!

    For my favorite new characters: David Parker, Mathew Parker
    , And Nelson Swanson. Least favorite new characters, The jones’s dad, And most of all EMILY JONES!!! And for the older characters that I want to come back: Trent Dewhite, Mandy Strauusberg, Bernard Walton, And most of all, The Washingtons!!!

  • jps on February 2nd, 2011 - 12:31pm


    yo, i really like Cammilla Parker, Jay, and vince. all thoughs guys R really awesome. keep up da good work, guys and think about knocking Mandy back in that would be way totally cool. bam

  • Odysseyfan#1 on February 2nd, 2011 - 3:27pm


    Hmm… interesting point, Jamie. But i thought it was pretty common knowledge that he didn’t, but I could be wrong. I haven’t listen to that album in a long time, but i just got it, and I’m gonna listen to it soon.

  • isaiah on February 2nd, 2011 - 5:14pm


    i love aio GO AIO!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Katie b on February 2nd, 2011 - 5:21pm


    I don’t think it’s Blackgaard cause The Odyssey team said that Earl Boen had retired and moved away. Maybe Mr. Charles? I wish Dr.Blackgaard would come back but I seriously doubt that he is the Stilleto.

  • Stevie on February 2nd, 2011 - 10:15pm


    Jamie I am pretty sure he didn’t die, they had a part in the Guide about what could have happened and Richard dying was one of those on the list, however it was what could have happened so it probably did not. I soo knew Monty was in this! 😀 Keep up the good work OdysseyFan#1! 😀

  • Bethany on February 2nd, 2011 - 10:42pm


    I think my favorite new character would be Jay although I like Emily and Barrett too. My favorite old character that I would like to see return would have to be Mitch. Also I wanted to say that I looooooved the episodes on Album 51 about the Jubilee Singers..They were sooo interesting. They sang great too..It was just so beautiful. I would love to be able to get a cd of just the songs from the album..

  • Stevie on February 3rd, 2011 - 7:53am


    I think that the blackgaurd case has come to the end. I am getting a little tired of him, no offense.

    I only listen to whatever you play on the radio.I haven’t been listening to you show for long so im kinda new thats why i haven’t gotten any of your albums yet. I love AIO! But my mom doesn’t 🙁

  • kathryn on February 3rd, 2011 - 12:09pm


    I loved this preview! Are you going to air the whole album like you did with album 52? I hope you do. Is Jason going to come back too?

  • snowbunny on February 3rd, 2011 - 8:52pm


    My favorite “new” characters are Matthew Parker and Monty. My younger sister’s favorite characters are Emily Jones and Monty. My OTHER younger sister just likes Emily. 🙂

  • a i o fan on February 3rd, 2011 - 8:53pm


    i hope jason is coming back

  • snowbunny on February 3rd, 2011 - 8:57pm


    Oh, and characters we’d like to see back are Mitch, the Chairman(?), Richard Maxwell, Mandy, and Kelly.

  • sara on February 3rd, 2011 - 9:01pm


    I cant wait until album 52 comes out!!!!!! thanks for the preview!

  • Wendy on February 5th, 2011 - 12:51am


    I don’t really like any of the new characters…they’re not the same quality as the old characters. I miss Lucy the most. I think that she and Jack should come back on the show as a married couple! Also, whatever happened to Robin and Melanie Jacobs? They disappeared and I think that they should return in some way.

  • 4 ever fan on February 5th, 2011 - 1:22pm


    i just got finished listening to the podcast..loved it! AIO has always been one of my favorite things to listen to during my free time!!!!! can’t wait to hear the new album…

  • taliax177 on February 6th, 2011 - 8:13am


    @SARA: Uh, it did come out. Are you talking about album 53???

    Hey, I found out what a STILETTO is!


  • Supersis on February 8th, 2011 - 9:06am


    I think I’d have to say that the character I miss the most is Bernard Walton second to that is Rodney Rathbone. For my least favorite new characters….. hmmm….. probably Olivia and Jay. I’d love it if you’d replace Jay with Rodney.

  • Abbie on February 8th, 2011 - 6:41pm


    I haven’t listened to part 1 yet, and I won’t till it comes out, but people say Jason’s in it. Is that true?? Because when I was listening to an advertisement on the Media Center, Whit said, “Take off that disguise- Its good to see you again.” Wouldn’t he be all like, “JASON!!!!” I don’t know, that’s what I think. PLEASE tell me I’m wrong!!!! Please tell me that was about a different character!!! The suspense is killing me!!!

  • Anonymous on February 9th, 2011 - 10:06am

  • KAITLIN JOY on February 9th, 2011 - 11:30am


    Love it! My favourite new character is Jay. It’s so weird because he’s alot like me. He say s a bunch of random things that everyone is thinking and that sortof what I do. Emily Jones is my least favourite new character. She thinks she know everything. very prideful. Could you bring back Mitch? Connie was heartbroken when he left and I want a new reaction. Bring back wooton and Bernard too. Maybe you should make an episode with a big odyssey reunion! Get everybody back here!Love AIO!Can’t wait!!

  • sarah on February 9th, 2011 - 4:02pm


    odyessy is awsome and i want to buy album 53 and listended to it.I listended odyessy on 88.5 and 88.1. by sarah

  • ftu on February 11th, 2011 - 12:23pm


    Wouldn’t you all be shocked if the “Stilleto” turned out to be Jerry Whittaker? Let’s be realistic here: no one really knows whether or not Jerry is actually dead. None of the Odyssey residents were there at the time, and there is no reference to Jerry being buried that I can remembered. Of course, if this theory was correct, Whit would be having an extreme emotional jolt(not to mention what it would do us!), but hey, this is Odyssey. Anything could happen!!! 😉

  • Sarah on February 12th, 2011 - 9:27am


    matthew is probably the best new character. Emily one of the worst.

  • MATT on February 12th, 2011 - 4:45pm



  • MATT on February 12th, 2011 - 4:49pm



  • Stevie on February 13th, 2011 - 4:52pm


    FTU, I have to say I would love it if Jerry was alive, from the few episodes about him he sounds like a cool character. You make a good argument however, from listening to the first episode, the Stilleto sounds evil. Jerry would NOT be evil. Then again maybe the Stilleto is good. Will we know? I guess we’ll just have to wait.

  • wnm on February 14th, 2011 - 12:26pm


    want,s going on you,stilleto is a bag giy its the chairmen.love

  • wnm on February 14th, 2011 - 12:31pm


    i love bernard,:)

  • ftu on February 14th, 2011 - 3:05pm


    Maybe he was brainwashed, Stevie, or had some kind of brain damage and can’t think straight. Anyway, I think it would be cool to have him come onto the stage and make life interesting for everyone involved. Besides, I’ve always liked Jerry’s character. They ought to make him marry a Vietnamese girl and have lots of lovely grandchildren for Whit to love. So, far, the only Whittaker to get married has been Jana!

  • wnm on February 15th, 2011 - 12:22pm


    what,love aia.

  • drew1200 on February 15th, 2011 - 7:03pm


    I just finished listening — It was probably the best podcast I’ve listen to so far! =D I haven’t listened to enough of the recent ones to know what my favorite charecter is, though it would still probably be Eugene. =P

  • Anonymous on February 17th, 2011 - 9:13am


    Can Mitch come back from Budepest…however you spell that…and marry Connie…or Jason can come back to and marry her!!! I want Jason and Mitch to come back. I love AIO. I’ve been listening for 8 years…almost everyday!!!

  • Jenneniah on February 20th, 2011 - 12:42pm


    I have a question that has been on my mind all week, so I thought I might as well post it on here.
    Are the Rathbone’s saved? I know they don’t act like it, but in some of the episodes it seems like they are.

  • anonomous on February 20th, 2011 - 5:41pm


    I really hope Mitch is back!!!!!!

  • deanna on February 21st, 2011 - 11:15am


    When are they going to start airing album #53??? i can’t wait!!! 😀

  • Cory on February 21st, 2011 - 7:41pm


    My favorite character from album 51 and forward is Camilla Parker. She’s very funny and I really enjoy listening to her.
    If you brought back any of the older characters, I would really appreciate if you brought back Bernard Walton. He was a very good storyteller and I miss him.
    The Washington family was great, also!!
    For the record- I personally believe that Jason Whittaker is the one in the hospital that worked for the Secret Service. He was still involved in the Federal Agency in(See next)

  • Cory on February 21st, 2011 - 7:47pm


    (Continued)Album 50, and the last we heard from him he was Jason Israel, trying to avoid another revenge episode such as the event with the Whisperer. He could try to return to see Whit, I’m not sure. Just a theory.
    Anyway, I really enjoy listening to Odyssey just the same. Thank you for everything you’ve done. The program is great and I love it.
    PS- If you could, I would enjoy it if Mitchell Roberts could come back, even if he doesn’t see Connie. Thanks!

    I think the review that I tried got deleted, so I’m going to try again.
    My favorite new characters would be the Parkers, and Mr. Parker in particular.
    My least favorite would be Red Hollard. As politely as possible, I think he is not a very good replacement for Bernard. I miss Bernard! And I miss Hal Smith and Paul Herlinger as Whit. I can’t believe you guys found such a close voice match in Paul!
    P.S. I love the audio drama of Chronicles of Narnia. Keep up the good work!

  • maxwelfan# 1 on March 13th, 2011 - 12:55pm


    to follow up on that comment. I think it is the green ring that is bad not the stiletto.and when I say “green ring”I refer to a spy ring not an actual ring. but I don’t know yet I have only listened to episode 1

  • Supersis on March 13th, 2011 - 7:50pm


    Favorite new character: Matthew Parker Least favorite new character: Emily Jones- her voice just doesn’t sound like a kid because it’s a grownup playing her. That also goes for the other grownups playing kids- it never sounds real.

  • Supersis on March 13th, 2011 - 7:52pm


    I wasn’t trying to be mean to the actors. That’s just my thought on the subject. They do a good job it’s just that a grownup will usually never sound like a kid.

  • Supersis on March 13th, 2011 - 7:53pm


    favorite (alive) old characters: Bernard and Rodney

  • Cinderella on March 14th, 2011 - 5:07pm


    If it’s possible, I wish they could bring back Bernard Walton! His cynicism is refreshing 🙂
    AIO is getting less believable in my opinion. I think they need to balance out outrageous action with more believable situations that kids could actually find themselves in.
    PS i miss rodney

  • abby on March 14th, 2011 - 5:50pm



  • Anonymous on March 14th, 2011 - 9:54pm


    I personally think characters shouldn’t be replaced with new actors and new names especially if the character had his or her own personality well developed, like Connie or Eugene. I do for the most part like the new stuff, its just the girl characters sound a little whiny.

  • Samantha on March 14th, 2011 - 10:45pm


    I have a guess on who the Stiletto is:

    Dalton Cern

  • ftu on March 16th, 2011 - 7:36am


    Interesting guess, Samantha. Maybe, if he’s Dalton Cern, then Leonard and Everet will return. I hope so!

  • hl on March 18th, 2011 - 2:44pm

    I think that the whole thing is pretty cool. I dont know about Jerry Whitaker though. If he was alive, that would ruin past episodes, like Memories of Jerry.
