And That's the Truth
“And That's the Truth” is episode #556 of the Adventures in Odyssey audio series. It was written and directed by Nathan Hoobler, and originally aired on December 4, 2004.


Jack Allen attempts to assert himself more and Tamika Washington decides to be as painfully honest as she possibly can.


Tamika makes a promise to be truthful at all cost—no matter how much it hurts (or how hard it is). Instead of being considerate with her truthfulness, she is brutally honest and says whatever opinion comes to her mind. When she tries Whit's new sundae, she tells him it is gross and tastes like she’s eating a tree. She even goes as far as to tell him he should find a contest for the worst flavor of ice cream ever! When her mom asks Tamika if she likes her new haircut, Tamika tells her it looks like she’s wearing a possum on her head. She tells her dad he’s fat and her brother that his music sounds terrible.

In the meantime, Jack Allen is having trouble with a new employee. The employee is caught lying, doing poor work, and not doing some work at all.

In the end, Mr. Allen and Tamika both learn a lesson in gentle but firm honesty.
