  • Manic on January 4th, 2012 - 8:01pm


    Dude, this is mondo cool! I’ve been listening to Adventures in Odyssey since I was little, but I only just found out about this place! Super cool! My fave character has gotta be Jack. He is epic. I like him a little bit better than Whit, even. The episodes with him and Jason rock.

    Later, dudes!


  • Kim on January 4th, 2012 - 11:02pm


    Hey Friends, could you keep me in your prayers?? I’ve got my first ever singing recital on the 28th, and I’m so scared. I’ve never done anything in front of people before. I need courage, please pray for me. (If you can.) I’m just kinda shakin up inside about this, I need help. Plus someone really weird is emailing me and they wont stop and its extremely disturbing. Anyway, thank ya’ll soooo much!! I love you all!!

  • ccc on January 5th, 2012 - 6:19am


    CCC officially agrees with Emily about Buck coming back. And Mary, Mitch won’t come back until cats go extinct, which is why you shouldn’t get your hopes up about Mitch.

  • Rock-o-ages on January 5th, 2012 - 10:27am


    Merry Christmas and Happy New Years everyone!!!

    I know that’s late, but due to the comment freeze-Pun inteended maybe? 😛 Winter? Cold? Freeze? :P-I never said that. So now I have! 😛 HA! 😛

    I can’t wait untill Album 55 comes out! Album 54 was good, but I think 52 and 53 were a bit better, in my opinion. 😉 Regardless, I got 54 for Christmas and I can’t wait to listen through it all!

    Who’s sill on Christmas break other than me?! 😛


    Wow, kind of a long comment. 😛

    Here’s one more. I think Buck is my second, no, first favorite character. Olivia is my second favorite.

  • abbY on January 5th, 2012 - 2:11pm



  • LITTLE ME on January 5th, 2012 - 5:10pm


    I’m not very up-to-date on the newer charecters. Who is Buck? What album (or special album) is he from?

  • LITTLE ME on January 5th, 2012 - 5:15pm


    whats the answer to your question in the last podcast?

  • Gabriel on January 5th, 2012 - 10:23pm


    1. What is the name of another world that Timmy Riley and a girl named Alice supposedly go into?
    2. Name all the episodes in album 50 and what other episodes the titles are taken off of.
    3. Name all the Plan B titles.
    4. Who said: Everyone knows that the shortest distance between two points is a strait line?
    5. Who said: *CHUCKLES* HELLO MITCH!

  • Gabriel on January 5th, 2012 - 10:24pm


    Look for the answers on the next adventures in Odyssey podcast! Odyssey’s 1* fan! 8)

  • GO JETS GO on January 6th, 2012 - 12:33pm


    i knew that boy that asked Valarie to bat her eyelashes sounded familiar.

  • Riley on January 6th, 2012 - 1:11pm


    I think that Eugene and Katrina should foster Buck Oliver?

  • ABigail on January 6th, 2012 - 4:36pm


    Yeah i agree abby Wooten is one of the best characters ever! I hope that Odyssey will be here so i can let my kids listen to them in about 11 years!

  • regollin on January 6th, 2012 - 6:54pm


    I haven’t done the funfacts in forever!
    As Elmo said: It is time!

    #1Dalmations are born without spots. (you probably knew that)

    #2 Bubble wrap was origionally made as walpaper.

    #3 A typical huricane weighs as much as 90 million hippos!

    #4 The largest known octopus arm can wrap around 4 cars.

    It takes 10 men to release the grip of an octopus the size of a human hand!

    #5 Snow leopars can leap 45 feet!

    #6 Tigers can eat 90 pounds of meat a meal!

    #7 Bat hair was used as money!


  • regollin on January 6th, 2012 - 6:57pm


    #8 The first computer was as long as a tennis court!

    #9 A volcanic eruption once made the sun look green

    #10 a pound of spider silk could streach around the equator!

    Hope ya learned something 😀
    God bless!

  • dina on January 8th, 2012 - 5:00am


    I agree with whoever said Mitch and Buck!!!

  • Believer on January 8th, 2012 - 12:17pm


    Eh buck is ok… not my favorite character. I dont like the fact they made him soooo Redneck? anywaaaays I would like to know how everyone turns out… What happens to them after they leave odyssey. I’ve heard what happens to Lucy, and Mandy, but what bout the rest?? Odyssey? Do you know?

  • Go Ia haWks on January 8th, 2012 - 1:10pm


    Me and my sister are in are room listening to aio.

  • Shinobu on January 9th, 2012 - 10:53am


    Wow, Regollin, I definately learned some things. 🙂

  • Anonymous on January 9th, 2012 - 11:17am


    can’t believe our favorite episode in CS&MOGL, How to Sink a Sub, was episode 700!
    Amazing. Keep up the good work.

  • LITTLE ME on January 9th, 2012 - 3:36pm


    I want to c taht too! I love 19 kids and counting. Watch it with my mom all the time 🙂

  • kismint on January 9th, 2012 - 8:57pm


    @ Regollin:

    God Bless,
    K-Mint 😉

  • e.j. jiggles on January 11th, 2012 - 4:43pm


    Buck is my new favorite character!! Listen to album 53 to hear from him. 🙂 To see the actor (Robbie Bruce), look up Robbie and Shelby Bruce on Youtube. They write Christian songs and sing them on their Youtube videos. 🙂

  • karasea on January 13th, 2012 - 10:58am


    how come the poll on features never gets an update??

  • Believer on January 13th, 2012 - 1:59pm


    OMgosh my favorite charicters are: (these are the characters you hear on the “new” odyssey
    1) Ryan
    2) Wooten
    3) Barret
    4) Pricilla
    Sorry Aio but she’s the ONLY ‘normal’ character! the only mature one I think, yes Ik that characters can’t be too mature or else theres not plot but come on! even Robin Jacobs was more mature that Olivia Parker..

  • Elisabeth on January 13th, 2012 - 6:50pm


    regollin cool facts how do you know that stuf? 8 was wierd I didn’t think computers were that big by the way I love AIO 🙂

  • Elisabeth on January 13th, 2012 - 6:54pm


    Is there age guidelines for AIO? Cuz sometimes I think I’m kinda old for it but I luv it so I don’t care if there’s a age limit

  • Jamie on January 14th, 2012 - 12:51pm


    This is really neat! I liked seeing the artists drawings of Richard Maxwell and Mr. Glossman (he looked pretty slimy) 🙂
    Here’s a question:
    Has anybody seen a cartoon show called the tick? I haven’t but i know three of the main voices for the characters.
    Townsend Colman, Jess Harnell, and Micky Dolenz (the last one isn’t from AIO, he just one of my favorite singers from a group called the Monkees)
    Is the show good?

  • robyn jacobs on January 15th, 2012 - 10:30pm


    someone said above that they were odysseys #1 fan but I would just like to say, i turned my room into whits end I listen to AIo everyday and i read the books i share odyssey with ALL my friends, i am always on this website or googling something anout them, so i say that me and that other commentor are BOTH the #1 fans!

  • Emily on January 17th, 2012 - 1:28pm


    This is to Emily, who commented first: Yes my name is Emily too and I agree. I want BUCK OLIVER back! He is AMAZING!!

  • Verses on January 17th, 2012 - 1:30pm


    Todays verse:

    “And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as GOD for CHRIST’S sake hath forgiven you.”
    Ephesians 4:32 KJV

  • Tori on January 17th, 2012 - 5:08pm


    I enjoy Odyssey so much. I listen on the radio everyday except Wednesdays because I have church at 7:30.
    But one thing urks me about Odyssey. They don’t use the King James Version Bible. What version exactly DO they use? It’s really on my nerves. Sorry if I hurt someone. Just thought I’d mention it.

  • emily on January 17th, 2012 - 5:13pm


    I really enjoy Odyssey too. One of my favorite people is Edmond Blackgaard. If I spelled his name wrong, I’m sorry. I really tried. This is something for that “Tori” person: look, you shouldn’t have said those things about Odyssey. I would like Odyssey to use KJV, but it doesn’t bother me really if they don’t. They are what they are, and I like them. I enjoy Odyssey, and I wish you wouldn’t say those things, Tori. To all you in the studio: YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME!!!

  • emily on January 17th, 2012 - 5:16pm


    Yea love that Odyssey. Mitch rocks!

  • regollin on January 18th, 2012 - 11:15am


    Hey. Could you pray for my freind? He was in a high speed carcrash and was found 90 feet from the car. His feemer is shattered, his eye is gone, and he’s in a coma. Please pray God can save him. He is 18 and has his whole life ahead of him. Please pray!

  • USA on January 19th, 2012 - 2:34pm


    REGOLLIN: i hope your freind gets better,i will be praying.

    God bless

  • e.j. jiggles on January 19th, 2012 - 3:20pm


    I’m praying right now. Remember that no matter what happens, God will work everything out in the end. That’s a lesson I’ve learned countless times. His poor family! Is he saved? I’ll tell my family to pray also. Thanks for telling us. 😥 🙂

  • LITTLE ME on January 19th, 2012 - 4:08pm


    . What is the name of another world that Timmy Riley and a girl named Alice supposedly go into? MARIS

    2. Name all the episodes in album 50 and what other episodes the titles are taken off of. …cricket cricket….I have no idea!

    3. Name all the Plan B titles….Okay i just listened to this: missing in action, umm something that starts with a c…..okay i don’t remember!

  • LITTLE ME on January 19th, 2012 - 4:09pm


    4. Who said: Everyone knows that the shortest distance between two points is a strait line? Eugene?

    5. Who said: *CHUCKLES* HELLO MITCH: Connie?

  • tasha on January 19th, 2012 - 4:54pm


    So I didn’t know were to email so I’m just going to ask here,is mitch going to come back because i really like him. Can somebody please answer me. Thanks!!

  • tasha on January 19th, 2012 - 5:21pm



  • regollin on January 20th, 2012 - 3:44pm


    E.J. Giggles: Yes he was saved. And I can’t wait to meet him again. Sometimes I forget he’s gone and ask about him. A song that kinda reminds me of it all is youth of the nation by P.O.D.
    Thanks for praying!

  • regollin on January 20th, 2012 - 3:46pm


    EJ Giggles: Oh you mean the freind that was in the crash. Yes he is a christian. He is still alive. God definatly protected him. But he still might die. Please pray that God can help him recover.

  • regollin on January 20th, 2012 - 3:48pm


    Here’s another did you know. Did you know Toby mac is 47 years old? I couldn’t believe it when I found out!

  • Manic on January 20th, 2012 - 6:08pm


    Dude! Toby Mac cannot be 47 years old. That’s like…as old as my dad!
    BTW, I like your name. Where did it come from?

    Later, Dudes!

  • Kenzi on January 21st, 2012 - 12:00am


    Guys, I’m kinda overly overwhelmed…I have something coming up that is really bothering me, and I was wondering if you could pray for me if you have the time? Thanks. 🙂

    @Regollin, I’m really sorry about your friend. I’ve been praying for you, and will continue too. God bless you!!


  • regollin on January 23rd, 2012 - 1:54pm


    Kenzi: Thanks for praying 🙂 I’ll be praying for you! I can relate.

    Manic: FTU came up with it. I like it, but I can think of a bunch of others I also like.

    Everyone: I know I’v asked this a bunch of times but no one answers me. Should I change my name to Zetrice or celidrin? Or should I stick with Regollin? Please answer!

  • Kim on January 23rd, 2012 - 5:09pm


    Regollin, Oh thank you!! Thats so sweet of you!

    Umm….I like Regollin. 🙂 Celidrin is cool too…..Do you have a favorite?? (Im taking it that Regollin isn’t really your real name?) Do you mind if I ask where you live? You don’t have to answer if you’d rather not.

    Thanks again Regollin!! I’ll be praying for you too.

  • kenzi on January 25th, 2012 - 10:14am


    Woops, Odyssey is doing strange things with my comments……My name is NOT Kim. Its Kenzie.

    Regollin: That comment above from Kim is from me. Kenzie. Sorry!!!

  • kenzi on January 25th, 2012 - 10:15am


    Thanks for praying and understanding Regollin. 🙂 I’ll be keeping you in my prayers too. God bless you!

  • ILH on January 25th, 2012 - 3:23pm


    WOW- that timeline is reallllyyy cool!!!

  • regollin on January 26th, 2012 - 3:25pm


    Kenzi: My real name is Seth. I like regollin, but I’ve had it for a long time. I think my favorite is Zetris, but I think everyone has gotten used to Regollin.

  • kenzi on January 26th, 2012 - 6:20pm


    Regollin: Thats a really nice name. 🙂 I like it. (Kenzie isn’t my “real” name either….lol.) I think my real name might confuse people. lol.
    Anyway, Go for whatever name you think is cool! I like all your suggestions. (And I also like the name Seth. 🙂

    I will be praying for your friend Regollin. I am glad he is saved. I know how it feels to have a friend in critical condition. My cousin David had malaria one time and almost died. Please pray for me and my family as we are going through some rough times right now. Thanks!

    Who is Toby Mac? Heard of him, but I really have no idea who he is. Em is not my “real” name either-as you can guess, it’s Emily.

    Kenzi, I am praying for you as well. \
    God Bless!

  • Kenzi on January 31st, 2012 - 12:08pm


    @Em, thank you! 🙂 I’ll be praying for you too! I understand….

    Tobymac is a christian Rap singer….Probably one of the most popular christian rappers out there…..He’s really nice, and has a great voice. Lyrics are great! My fav song by him is “Hold On.” You should check it out! 🙂

    God bless you!

    hey, i’m not new here just haven’t been on lately

  • Camille on February 15th, 2012 - 6:01pm


    To be honest, AIO this past year, and past couple of years have taken a plunge in the deep end(in my opinion). I grew up on Odyssey and was always accused of being “addicted” to it:) I am in high school now and still love to listen to the adventures I’ve listened to thousands of times. Around volume 50 I feel like the actors, plots and overall content has become more “fake”. But I’m sure many people love the new stories. I’m probably just an overally critical person.
    God bless for AIO and 2012!

  • DVDS on February 22nd, 2012 - 3:10pm


    @ Manic
    Yep he is 47 that’s even older than my dad!!!

  • DVDS on February 22nd, 2012 - 3:13pm


    @ Jamie
    I’ve looked up “The Tick” just to see what it was (Townsend Coleman is my favorite actor)

  • DVDS on February 22nd, 2012 - 3:15pm


    @ Little me
    I’ve only seen some episodes, but we don’t have cable so I can’t watch it much.

  • DVDS on February 22nd, 2012 - 3:19pm


    @ Manic
    I just saw your post about Jason and Jack working together. I really like it when they work together too!

  • Manic on March 1st, 2012 - 5:20pm


    Yeah, but what I liked was that they actually had problems with each other. It really showed how human they were. 🙂
