Three different albums encompass all of the episodes in the 2010 Season. Album 51, Take it From the Top, was released in March 2010. Much excitement was built up in the two years before its release.
Album 52, Cause and Effect, was released in October of 2010. According to the official podcast, album 52 is the longest album ever produced.
The sampler album Welcome to Whit’s End, includes the 11-minute minute episode called “Welcome to Whit’s End”.
Between 2008 and 2009 the AIO team took a long hiatus to reevaluate the direction that the show was taking, as they had done 10 years earlier after Album 25: Darkness Before Dawn. During this time they wrote new episodes, created new characters, and decided to make changes on things such as the show's logo and the release of albums.
Probably the most notable and noticeable change in the season is that the acting role of John Whittaker, who was done by Paul Herlinger up until the end of 2008, was taken over by the actor Andre Stojka. When the switch was officially announced, it was stated that Herlinger retired because of health reasons. Sadly, one month before the premiere of this season, he passed away.
In the past, albums were always available some time after all of the episodes in them were aired on the radio. Starting with the release of Passages: Darien's Rise, albums have been available before their episodes air, or shortly after the first few episodes air.
