    @LIA:
    Congratulations on getting your TRQ answered! You’re lucky!

    I’ve got on question: who’s holding the Connie mask? Is that Chris? I can’t tell.

    I recently heard Katie’s voice for a commercial here in Ohio! It was for some thing up in Cleveland. I got so excited! I also heard Bob’s voice for a take your Bible to school day. (Yes, it’s a Christian radio station.

    @LIACUPCAKE
    I just checked the AIO Wiki and it says Katie Leigh has acted in 434 episodes!


  • Whit Fan #1 on November 22nd, 2019 - 10:49am

     

    Whoops I forgot to put my name on that one about how many episodes Katie Leigh has acted in.


  • Cal on November 22nd, 2019 - 11:07am

     

    The club episode “Things not Seen” introduced the character of Renee Carter it was originally cut from album 60 so does that mean that Renee Carter would’ve been a normal character ?


  • WWIININJA on November 22nd, 2019 - 1:42pm

     

    What’s up?


  • liacupcake on November 22nd, 2019 - 2:07pm

     

    @COOLCUZ, Wow, and I haven’t even bought presents for 2 of the people in my family! Are you homeschooled?

    Yes!


  • Whit Fan #1 on November 22nd, 2019 - 4:42pm

     

    I think I may have noticed an Odyssey goof.
    I was listening to both parts of Nightmares By Constance, and in part one Jillian noticed a vintage SUITCASE. In part two Cynthia asks Claire to hand her her BAG. Jason said Jillian noticed the bag in the video but in part one it’s a suitcase.


  • Jell-O on November 22nd, 2019 - 5:38pm

     

    @COOLCUZ
    That’s more presents than I’ve got wrapped! 😉

    No! Connie and Jason CANNOT be a thing 🙂

    I personally really like the newer Connie compared to how she was when it first started
    Although I don’t relate to her:)

    we should go for 1000 some time! when was the last time you guys did it? I havn’t been here for a long time.


  • Honeyfur on November 22nd, 2019 - 10:08pm

     

    I’m in my early 20s and still listen to Odyssey. I’ve been able to relate to Connie so much in the newer episodes which has been a real encouragement at times. It’s funny how that happens as you grow; that you can relate to different characters or hear an older episode different. That’s why I like the program so much: it’s got something for everyone. 🙂

    @MODERATORS
    I like to put in my earbuds and listen to the podcast at night to help me wind down before I fall asleep, on my kindle tablet. But these last two podcasts won’t play on my tablet, just on my laptop. The old ones will, however, so I am confused. Have you been using some kind of new thing to release the podcasts or something, that isn’t available on my device? Or is it something you can fix? If you can’t, it’s okay, I’m just wondering.

    I have a question
    1. In album 47: Into the light wooton goes to a carnival and seems to idolize clowns and then in album 64 under the surface wooton is now scared of clowns what is up with that.

    Other than that error I love you guys so much and I listen to you every day with my brother Alex

    I went back through all of the Christmas comment freezes and I can tell you that the freezes started on December 21 at the earliest and ended on January 7 at the latest. The most frequent time span was December 23 to January 3. Hope that gives you a general idea of the time span! Do you think we’ll have enough time to get 1,000 comments on the next podcast?

    Connie has done so much for me over the years. My parents divorced when I was 14, and my friend introduced me to Odyssey. I listed to the first episode that Connie was in that day. I related to her so much. Here was a girl, close to my age, going through all the things I am going through! In 2008, I listened to the episode “Connie” and I became a Christian. She has gotten me through a lot of bad times. I am now happily married, and 6 months pregnant with a little girl! We are naming her Connie.

    I’m the target,
    And I’m weak.

    I then look up. 
    There is a light shining in the darkness.
    I reach out and grasp it.
    I hold it close.
    I’m safe.
    Nothing the darkness does will loosen my grip.

    Jesus saved me.
    He was the light.
    He is the light.
    He always will be the light.
    Forever.
    Amen.

    Dear Katie Leigh-

    Thank you for all you do for AIO. You inspire me so much. When I listened to the episodes Connie part one and two, I came out from rest time and told mom happily, “I prayed with Connie and I’m a Christian now!” I was so excited to have accepted Jesus with my favorite character.

    Love. Ninetales

    @KATIE LEIGH:
    If you are the real one, I just want to say you are awesome and you are my favorite character on AIO and I think Connie should marry Jason. <3<3<3 And even if you aren't, what I said about Connie still goes. (-; That and I got excited about hearing your voice on a commercial for something in Cleveland Ohio. God bless! <3

    @KATIE LEIGH, If that is the real you, and you read this comment, I just want say that you are sooo great at both voice acting, and well, life. Yeah, I’m not good at words, but you get the point.
    I’m a huge fan and think that you are awesome. Also, Connie is my favorite character (though, it’s a tie with Jules.) ?

    @Yazmine, that is just so cool and sweet! God works in amazing ways.

    We always seem to scare off the people who post under the username of the actor being interviewed! Lol!

    Unfortunately, it seems so! Lol!

    I’m still checking, though! They’d be the only celebrities I’ve ever “met”. Unless you count one of the senators for Ohio. He was at our county fair!

    @COOLCUZ
    Yeah, I keep checking too.
    Who knows, perhaps Kimmy Robertson will show up on the main page!
    Have you ever imagined that you’re in a public place and then you catch sight of an Odyssey actor and you get too meet them and stuff? I have dreams like that all the time (Though they mostly end quite strangely!)
