Send Us Your TRQs – Totally Random Questions

Do you have a TRQ? Not a Twisted Rubber Quilt or Titanium Rabbit Queen. Actually we’re referring to Totally Random Questions, which we have begun asking during interviews on the Official Adventures in Odyssey Podcast. And here’s the cool part: They’re not our questions…they’re yours!

This new podcast feature gives fans a chance to ask members of our cast and crew unpredictable questions that have nothing to do with, well, anything. “What’s your favorite sea creature?” “If you could travel through time, which year would you visit? “How do you feel about quinoa?”

Got a question, leave it on our Totally Random Question page. And then listen for your username on future podcasts! If Bob and Jesse pick your Torque Risk Quotient … er, Totally Random Question … they’ll be sure to give you a shout-out!
