Description

Start with the excitement of old-time radio dramas, add action-packed stories, intriguing mysteries, and lessons in fatherhood. The result? Adventures in Odyssey! This collection of previously-released episodes will introduce new listeners to the characters and places that make Odyssey, well, Odyssey.

Discovering Odyssey is a special introductory album. Featuring 9 episodes on 3 CD's, this album contains a majority of early episodes from Adventures in Odyssey, with several newer ones sprinkled in. Also contained in the album is a special booklet with an AIO product listing.

Although it is not part of the mainstream audio series, Discovering Odyssey is a more current beginners' release. This package was produced to somewhat replace the classics album, Welcome to Odyssey. However, the episode listing is slightly altered from the original.
