Fan favorite Zach Callison returns to Odyssey as the voice of Two-Bits Luker in “The Long End” (Plus: Vote in the Avery Awards!)

Monday, June 3rd, 2019

“The Long End” introduced the somewhat violent Two-Bits Luker, a guy who liked to carry a baseball bat around to get his point across. Two-Bits was played by Zach Callison, the original voice of Matthew Parker from 2010 to 2014. Zach tells us what he’s been up in recent years and how he created a character who was very different.

The Avery Awards have closed. Thank you for your votes. Listen to the podcast later to summer to hear the winners! 

65: Expect the UnexpectedAlbum 65: Expect the Unexpected

There’s never a dull moment in the town of Odyssey! From a mysterious police investigation to an internship at a funeral home, every situation leads to unexpected results. When Zoe Grant and Olivia Parker start a new talk show, they reluctantly choose Jay Smouse as their first guest. But his talent of stuffing his mouth with jelly beans leads to frantic and frightening consequences. An impromptu Parker family picnic turns into an unusual opportunity for David as he decides to go to extreme lengths to prove a point to his kids about initiative. And Buck and the Meltsners face a sudden dilemma when a social worker questions Eugene and Katrina’s role as Buck’s guardians. Don’t miss out on a single shock, twist, or turn as the folks in Odyssey learn about fame, friendship, family, and more in these six exciting stories.

Album 66: Trial by Fire

After years of searching for his true identity, Buck Oliver may finally get some answers. But along with clues about his family, he also is subjected to the dangers of his past. Buck’s old mentor Mr. Skint arrives in town with an offer that would take Buck away from Odyssey for good. Elsewhere, Connie feels unappreciated when Jules starts looking up to new roommate Jillian more than her own sister. And the crew at B-TV chart a course deep into the ocean to learn more about the concept of the Trinity. Dramatic conclusions and fresh beginnings abound in these six entertaining and inspiring adventures in Odyssey!

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!

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.
