    thats Cool,

  • Anya fan on September 18th, 2013 - 10:36am


    None of the comments have been published yet. But don’t worry, I’m just going to enjoy writing my comment and let all those tens of “First COMMENT!” people have their party. (How exactly can twenty people have the first comment?)
    Anyhoo, that was a lovely podcast as always. I look forward to Big Top with glee, I’m a huge fan of J&P mysteries. How crazy that a non-winner of the contest gets made into a show FIRST! It seems this Katie WYNN landed a WIN! BA HA HA! Sorry for the headache.

  • TINYAUTHOR12 on September 18th, 2013 - 10:38am


    Awesome! I love this episode! Great job Katie!

    Kay, just tried to comment, but it didn’t seem to go through.
    Anyhoo, even though it says there are “no responses yet” I’ll just chill and let all those “FIRST COMMENT!!!!!” people go nuts.
    I am a big fan of J&P mysteries, Emily RULES! Congratulations to the author. It seems Katie WYNN landed a WIN! Ba ha ha! Sorry for the headache. You have all us Odyssey fans admiration and envy, Katie.

    Can Aio have a writing contest for Jr. High kids? or High school kids? Thanks!

  • Madeleine on September 19th, 2013 - 5:52am


    I have always wanted to write for adventures in Odyssey. I am working on a script now, about Olivia organizing a fundraiser, but Jay convinces her that it’s boring and being a christian doesn’t allow you any fun. It’s in bad shape right now, but maybe you will one day hear it on the radio. (This might be a fantasy, I don’t know. It’s hard to decipher my imagination and reality sometimes.)

    Just tell them it’s great to get the latest news from Odyssey fast thru the podcast, and it’s a fab way to keep in touch with the fans.

  • Crazy fan on September 19th, 2013 - 7:59am


    Itd be a blast to get shona here again!!!!!!

  • Dr. Dene on September 19th, 2013 - 8:05am


    Yesterday was soooo stressful. First, I got braces over 4 weeks ago, and I was biting on my bottom braces, so they put in risers, made out of glue, to keep me from biting down. They kept on wearing off though, so yesterday at 10 my dad took me, along with my sister, to go get my glue risers larger. I got them on, and then when we got back home and had lunch, one of them came off! Then, my little brother spotted red ink on my feet, and there was the same thing on his feet! I was thinking, this…

  • Dr. Dene on September 19th, 2013 - 8:12am


    …is really strange. Then, I found a little bit of red ink on the floor, and so I got a glass of water and the paper towel roll, to try and get it up. I poured on water, and the ink and water spread! I was trying to get it up, and my mom was on the phone about my risers, and my dad was packing, because he was about to have to go on a trip for the weekend, and I was trying to do it, but I couldn’t. And then my mom came in, and she helped me get it up (though there’s still a very pink stain…

  • Dr. Dene on September 19th, 2013 - 8:14am


    I meant very light pink stain. Then, I found some more ink on the hard wood floor underneath the kitchen table, but that was easy to get up. There was some on the table and the chair though, and that hasn’t come off. Then, my dad left, and I decided to have a break by using the computer. And I look down by the desk, and there’s 4 or 5 little stains of red ink. I went to go get my mom, and she poured water on it, and got it up a bit. She also used some carpet cleaner we happened to have…

  • Dr. Dene on September 19th, 2013 - 8:19am


    So I was thinking, maybe it’ll come up. And I was helping my little brother clean up the room, because it was cluttered with all his toys. Then, my mom went to use the other computer, and I was going to use the computer, because I’d had hardly any time earlier when I spotted the stains. So I made special note of the almost full little glass of water right by the desk, sat down, and bumped over the almost full glass of water!!! I was so mad at myself! I got paper towels and tried to get up the…

  • Dr. Dene on September 19th, 2013 - 8:22am


    water, but then my mom came in and told me to go get big towels, and I did, and then we tried to move over the desk, my mom and I, but my mom accidentally grabbed off the trimming, but she was later able to put it back on with only her hand, because there were nails in the trimming, and she only had to push them back into the desk. So we took out all the drawers, and then tried moving it, and we dried the computer which sits on the floor, because of course that got wet. And then we cleaned up…

  • Dr. Dene on September 19th, 2013 - 8:42am


    the play room, and we left to go get my glue back on. Then, my sister asked if we could go get her ears pierced, because my parents told her that she could get her ears pierced for her birthday. So we went to get her ears pierced, and so now she has 18 pairs of earrings, including the ones in her ears. Then we came back home, and had dinner of pizza (rare) while we watched A Bug’s Life. And while I was eating the pizza, my glue came off! Then, during the night, my other glue riser came off!…

  • Dr. Dene on September 19th, 2013 - 8:43am


    Tell you more later, right now I have to go.

  • 4 the fun 12 on September 19th, 2013 - 8:46am


    @mcawesome It would be AWESOME if odyssey brought Shona back to the show! Do it, please, odyssey!!

  • Kathleen e on September 19th, 2013 - 10:46am


    Hate to break it to you odyssey fans from Michigan but I am most definitely the BIGGEST fan of AiO in the state!!!I have been collecting Odyssey albums for years and can’t wait for “A Call To Something More” to come out. I’m DYING to hear “Life Expectancy”! What’s happening to Connie? How’s Jason doing at J&J antiques? Will Eugene and Katrina adopt, or maybe foster and then adopt?

  • TINYAUTHOR12 on September 19th, 2013 - 11:37am


    @ Wooton: Sorry, but there is already a state that Odyssey is in. It is in Ohio. It has actually been introduced as Odyssey, Ohio before. I didn’t know either until my MEGA FAN sister told me, and I found it on an AIO fan website. Here is one thing from that site.
    In Whit’s Visitor, the narrator begins the episode by stating, during the introduction after the opening interview, that we are going to ‘Odyssey, Ohio’.
    Hope I could help!

    Bring back Jeff Lewis!!! Like Jeff found God. Him and Connie need to get back together. Even though I’m sooooo stinking disapointed about her and Mitch. I wanted to cry when I heard that episode!! Please don’t let Mitch get married! And if he does, bring back Jeff Lewis!!!!!

  • TINYAUTHOR12 on September 20th, 2013 - 11:15am


    @ CCMW: No, they didn’t get a new Emily and Matthew. The actors who play them are just older now, so they sound different. I have downloaded this album, I did back in August, so I have heard this episode before. It is a great episode. Hope I could help!

One time I was a ginny pig for a new thing (I don’t remember what it was) and it kept on falling out I think it was replaced three times before they tried something else. 🙂 What’s a riser?

    But that episode bothers me. It portrays the Puritans as these PERFECT people, which isn’t true at all…just look at what some of them actually believed! And have you heard of the Salem Witch Trials? *shudders* You’ll most likely learn that in High School.
    My comment’ll probably not be fully posted. But, just makin’ people a little more aware of history, that’s all.

  • CCCW on September 24th, 2013 - 9:21am


    @Stem- Yes, that is episode I’m referring too. I am actually studying the Salem trials this chapter in history, but I knew about them before that. The trials were 70 years later from when the pilgrims came over so most of them were already gone. As the years passed from when they came over, they had kids who were unbelievers and people came over who were unbelievers, so that could partially account for that.

  • serena on September 24th, 2013 - 10:03am


    It’s a good episode, a little odd though. That’s probably just because the regular writers didn’t write it. But, you know, it’s a little hard to fallow, so many odd names, strange ascents, wired circus terms… other than that, it’s a grand episode! 😛

    @TINYAUTHOR12- are you really an author? or at least a wannabe author? i totally am! my favorite authors are c s lewis(narnia), j k rowling(harry potter), rick riordan(percy jackson), and jenny l. cote(the amazing tales of max & liz, the epic order of the seven)! those were all series and not book titles
    @ME- I LOVE NARNIA!!!!! my favorite character is Edmund, because he’s funny and his story portrays the sacrifice Christ makes for us. my teacher’s favorite series (besides the Bible) is narnia!

    i forgot 2 ask- @EVERYONE WHO POSTS-
    who are your favorite authors and why?
    my favorites are my favorites because they tell their stories well, and for some(c s lewis and jenny l. cote), their stories have spiritual meaning behind their books that are worth knowing! c s lewis especially.
    but who are your favorite authors, what are their books or series called, and why do you like them? thanks!! (#lookingforsomethingnew2read!

    @ Penny Wise: Yes, I am a wannabe author. I write with my sister some. I like different books. I like “The Mysteries of MiddleField” series by Kathleen Fuller. They’re Amish mysteries. I’m not Amish, and I don’t really understand some of their ways, but I still think the series is pretty cool. I also like old mystery books, like from the 60’s. I’m also starting the Red Rock Mysteries. As you can probably tell, I like mystery books. I’m running out of room! Con.

  • TINYAUTHOR12 on September 24th, 2013 - 3:45pm


    @ Penny Wise: Con. I like old mysteries from around the 60’s like Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys. I don’t know if you’ve ever heard of those. I have my dad’s old collection, and I found out that they still sell the original series at a nearby Christian store. I love to read, so you will hardly ever find me without my nose in a book!

    @ Justinboots
    Once, I watched The Fiddler on the Roof movie for the first time (we borrowed it from some friends) and then, since we now knew what the story was about, went the next day to see a musical of it. We personally knew the fiddler in the musical, and also the father of the girls.

  • Dr. Dene on September 24th, 2013 - 3:52pm


    @ Penny Wise
    I want to be an author. My favorite author is Trenton Lee Stewart. He wrote The Mysterious Benedict Society books. My sister got the whole set (5 books) for her birthday this year. The books are rather long (300- 500 pages), so if you just want a quick read, these aren’t for you. The books by name are: The Mysterious Benedict Society, The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Perilous Journey, The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Prisoner’s Dilemma, a puzzle book that is probably..

  • Dr. Dene on September 24th, 2013 - 3:56pm


    100 pages long, and the last book, The Extraordinary Education of Nicholas Benedict. They’re adventure type books centered around 4 kids: Reynie Muldoon, Sticky Washington, Kate Weatherall, and Constance Contraire. What is their mysterious adventure? And why is Constance always so cranky? Can the kids save the world in time? Find out in this boxed set. (Though for the hardcover boxed set, it’s $50. A rather large amount, but I think it’s worth the money.) Hope you find this helpful!

    You are too funny. I only have 15 albums (my family’s money doesn’t exactly grow on trees, you know), but I have listened to (besides episodes from 57)every single one!Including family portraits. I have been on this website since the very first podcast EVER. I have literally hundreds of quotes and pictures of characters. I can’t answer every question in 10 seconds, and I bet YOU can’t either. Here’s one for you, Who does Mandy marry?
    How long did that take? please answer honestly.

    @TINYAUTHOR12- i have never heard of those Katherine Fuller books, but i have read the nancy drew and hardy boys.
    @DR DENE- i have read the mysterious benedict society series. i rad the first one when i was at least 9 so you can imagine how confusing it was. however, i read the other books and enjoyed them, except i haven’t read the last one!

    No, Odyssey isn’t in Colorado. That’s just where Focus on the Family is located.

    @ Didi The Dad: Whitsend and Focus on the Family are in Colorado, but in the radio show it is in Ohio. It has once been introduced as Odyssey, Ohio by Chris herself. I’m not positive, but so far all of the facts point to Odyssey being in Ohio. I don’t want to start any trouble, that’s just what I’m seeing so far. TTFN!

    @ Didi the Dad: I have some proof that Odyssey may be in Ohio! Ohio and Illinois are next to each other, but Colorado and Illinois are far apart. They have said in the shows that on a train it takes 1 day to get from Odyssey to Chicago. If Odyssey were in Colorado, you couldn’t do that by train, if you could even get there by train. That just seemed like some help. Hope I didn’t offend you, I was just trying to make my point. TTFN!

    @ Didi the Dad: I don’t mean to start an argument either, but I don’t mean Focus or the real Whitsend, I mean in the show itself. How would you be able to take a train from Odyssey to Chicago and make it there in a day, if Odyssey is in Colorado and Chicago is in Illinois? People have been guessing for years, but so far the facts point to Ohio. When Chris says Colorado, she’s talking about their HQ. Please don’t take any of this the wrong way.
    -Peace from the tie-dye chipmunk!

  • TINYAUTHOR12 on September 27th, 2013 - 3:22pm


    @ Ria: Ah, you’re a newer poster aren’t you? Well, a couple of years back, an old poster’s sister got on to his computer, on to Whitsend, and started messing with his name. She typed in something random, and it turned out to say “SHMEEBO”. So, whenever he posted, it came up as SHMEEBO. Then he found out his sister did it. We all found it so funny, someone *ahem* declared it SHMEEBO Day. Sep. 12. We all post as SHMEEBO on that day every year. That’s the story!

  • Gianna on February 11th, 2016 - 12:58pm

  • Gianna on February 11th, 2016 - 12:59pm


    Hi, Lizlibrarian! You once told you me you liked writing, and I thought I might see you here!! 🙂 🙂

  • GIANNA on February 11th, 2016 - 3:03pm


    I am changing my name to Gisela, one of the characters in one of my favorite books. So remember:

  • GISELA on February 12th, 2016 - 12:27pm


    I have a few tips: Snuck is not a word. Sneaked is a word. I used to say “I snuck a away” or something like that, when I should have said sneaked!

  • Julianna on February 13th, 2016 - 10:31am


    Jesells, Nice tip!

  • Gisela on February 15th, 2016 - 4:08pm


    Thanks, Julianna! Is anyone here? I am going to talk about my book I have been writing for a while! (Please don’t copy!)
    It’s called Terror on the Titanic! A girl boards the “the unsinkable ship” and is in for danger!

  • Julianna on February 15th, 2016 - 6:23pm


    Interesting name! I’m writing some music and poetry.

  • GISELA on February 16th, 2016 - 9:15am


    Julianna: You write music? COOOOL! I just chose Terror on the Titanic because it sounded really good.

  • GISELA on February 16th, 2016 - 9:58am


    Is no one here?!?

  • Julianna on February 16th, 2016 - 5:04pm


    sometimes. I’m here. I’m not sure about the others.

  • Gisela on February 17th, 2016 - 9:48am


    Maybe I should advertise this more.

  • Gisela on February 18th, 2016 - 1:32pm

  • Gisela on February 24th, 2016 - 7:27am

  • 1of7 on February 29th, 2016 - 1:34pm


    Grammar Tip:
    When you use the word ‘a’ you have to have a word that doesn’t start with a vowel after it. If you want to use a word that DOES start with a vowel after it, use ‘an’.

  • gisela on March 1st, 2016 - 9:30am


    1of7, Welcome! I started it, no one came, and now you and Starwarsfan8 are here! I Julianna is here too.

    Gisela I like writing too. Can I join?

  • The kid on March 1st, 2016 - 4:18pm


    I have a grammar tip use too instead of to in some sentences. For example: I want to come too!

  • Marie on March 2nd, 2016 - 3:45am


    Hey can I join? I’m in the middle of writing a song…. My parents said they loved it!!! I love writing songs and just singing them in my room and making adjustments!!!

  • Marie on March 2nd, 2016 - 3:55am

    P.S. Your good at writing and drawing…. I am horrible at that stuff:)

  • Marie on March 2nd, 2016 - 6:16am


    I hope they have another contest like the why I heart odyssey contest!!!

  • Marie on March 2nd, 2016 - 6:24am


    Everyone, I recommend three book series, Dragons in our Midst, Oracles of Fire and Children of the Bard!!! They are the best series I have ever read. I am on book three of Children of the Bard!!! I am so addicted to those books… You won’t regret reading those!!!!

  • GISELA on March 2nd, 2016 - 12:11pm


    The Kid: Of course you can join! You don’t even need to ask!
    Marie: You too, if you want.

  • Julianna on March 4th, 2016 - 4:49pm


    Jesella, Just so you know, I will not post in the endorse book club. My computer is very slow. I will post about books here instead.

  • gisela on March 7th, 2016 - 12:08pm


    Julianna: It’s okay! Writing and reading here!

  • gisela on March 7th, 2016 - 12:10pm


    Oh, Julianna, type in books! We will have books there too! There are only 55 comments! See you there!

  • gisela on March 11th, 2016 - 7:36am


    Okay this is the writing place, if anyone else wants to join!

  • 1of7 on March 14th, 2016 - 5:37am


    Do you want to write a kid’s book and don’t know where to start? I recommend a book i got for Christmas, Writing Children’s Books for Dummies! (Seriously im not kidding the book is very informativie.

  • Gisela on March 22nd, 2016 - 4:05pm


    1of7: cool, I will try it!! Are you an author? 🙂

  • RyAN on March 24th, 2016 - 8:07am


    Bob Hoose sounds so much like Alan Young!

  • 1of7 on March 25th, 2016 - 11:04am


    An aspiring author, yes, I want to be!

  • Gisela on March 29th, 2016 - 8:46am


    I write my won little novels…. I hope I don’t sound strange, but I like writing my own books, but not that much in school!

  • Gisela on March 29th, 2016 - 8:47am


    I meant my own, not won! It was just submitting when I noticed that…

  • 1of7 on April 1st, 2016 - 7:42am


    Anyone here?

  • Gisela on April 1st, 2016 - 9:18am


    Yes!! I am!

  • 1of7 on April 4th, 2016 - 2:18pm


    Grammar Tip:
    When writing, it’s more professional to never start a sentence with ‘and’. For example:
    She went to the store to get bread. And while she was there, she picked up jam.
    Instead, do this:
    She went to the store to get bread and jam.

  • Gisela on April 4th, 2016 - 3:50pm


    1of7: Are you there?

  • 1of7 on April 6th, 2016 - 7:51am



  • Gisela on April 7th, 2016 - 1:43pm


    Great! What do you like writing, 1of7? Mystery, romance, ect?

  • Julianna on April 8th, 2016 - 5:18pm


    Hello. I’m back.

  • Gisela on April 11th, 2016 - 1:27pm


    Yes! Hi, Julianna!

  • 1of7 on April 11th, 2016 - 5:21pm


    I like writing Juvenile action, romance, biblical fiction stories! Right now I’m working on one based off of the prophecy of the book of Obadiah.

  • Tigers10 on April 12th, 2016 - 7:49am


    I haven’t started a book , but i really want to write a book. I really want to write books for kids and teens( mystery books).

  • Gisela on April 12th, 2016 - 9:23am


    That’s interesting!! I am writing medieval romance at the moment.
    Do you read Nancy Drew? Or Hardy Boys? If you read them, it might help you. Like about all the twists and plots. Those books give me an idea about what I want to write. I don’t copy plots, though.

  • Gisela on April 12th, 2016 - 4:51pm

  • Gisela on April 26th, 2016 - 1:13pm


    Aw, that’s too bad!! Do you mean like summer break or the weather? It’s not too hot here in Ohio. I’ve been really busy as well. I’ll be on more in the summer!! I’ll still be gardening and stuff, but I’ll be on more. This one girl I know is homeschooled and she doesn’t get summer break! She gets off different times in the year, though. She’s been to the real Whit’s End.:)
