Executive producer Dave Arnold, producer Nathan Hoobler, writer/director Sam Suksiri, and writer/director Phil Lollar answer fan questions about recent albums and preview the upcoming Album 65 and look at future books and releases.

Album 63: Up in the Air

Wooton Bassett returns from his honeymoon with two major problems – Penny is missing and his memory is gone! The journey to find his new bride means probing the depths of Wooton’s crazy mind while also reliving his honeymoon – everything from skydiving in Nicaragua to singing on stage with Wooton’s favorite band, the Pool Boys! Meanwhile, Eugene and Connie deal with the highs and lows of raising teenagers. Connie’s half-sister Jules tries to recreate her life in Los Angeles by making a new friend – school troublemaker Valerie Swanson. And when Connie’s driving lessons leave fingernail marks on the dashboard, Jules turns to another source to teach her — Odyssey’s new licensed driver, Buck Oliver. You’ll learn the meaning of true friendship and love as you come along for the heart-changing, risk-taking experience of a lifetime!

Album 64: Under the SurfaceAlbum 64: Under the Surface

A scuba diving adventure leads to an unlikely investigation as Wooton and Penny try to find the owner of a camera they discovered at the bottom of Trickle Lake. And that’s not the only long-hidden secret being uncovered in Odyssey! When Whit sends Olivia and Matthew on an Imagination Station adventure to the Old Testament, the pair discover that their heroes have unpleasant dark sides, too. The Jones & Parker Detective Agency investigates an author’s long-lost final manuscript and discovers that the mystery may be bigger than they ever imagined. And after Buck laments his lack of family connections, Eugene takes him on a road trip to find out more about his personal history. In these six thrilling adventures, you’ll discover why millions of people can’t wait to hear another exciting adventure in Odyssey!

And Buck and the Meltsners face a sudden dilemma when a social worker questions Eugene and Katrina’s role as Buck’s guardians.
