AIOWiki Podcast #30
November 22, 2020
Since 2017, the AIOWiki Podcast has grown from an experimental mixture of news and reviews to one of the most popular Adventures in Odyssey fan podcasts. Now, after three-and-a-half years of views, reviews, news, and interviews, the podcast has come to an end. Lee and Arista reflect on the past thirty editions and all that happened behind the scenes in this final edition of the AIOWiki Podcast.

AIOWiki Podcast Announcement
November 15, 2020
The final edition of the AIOWiki Podcast will be released on November 22, 2020. We appreciate your patience over these past few months (and years, for that matter) with regard to the erratic release schedule of the podcast. This final edition will be a retrospective of the 3.5 years of the AIOWiki Podcast, and is approximately 40 minutes long.

AIOWiki Podcast #29
August 22, 2020
For the first time in the history of AIO fan podcasting, the review of an Odyssey episode is joined by the writer himself. Phil Lollar returns to devote another three hours to the AIOWiki Podcast, this time breaking down the behind-the-scenes of “The Rydell Revelations, Part 3.” Lee and Ryan barrage him with clarifications, nitpicks, and questions, which eventually leads to the one question left hanging from the three-parter: “Is all of that… good?”

August 9, 2020
With Arista absent for this edition of the AIOWiki Podcast, Ryan Matlock jumps in to review with Lee the penultimate Rydell Saga episode, “The Rydell Revelations, Part 2.” How good is this continuation of the previous part? The two reviewers pore over all aspects of the episode, including the biggest plot twist and its implications for an earlier, unresolved mystery.

July 21, 2020
The end begins here. The Morrie Rydell Saga is finally finishing, and Lee and Arista are ready with the 27th AIOWiki Podcast, the review of “The Rydell Revelations, Part 1.” Without hearing the other two parts, is this episode a worthy impetus for the conclusion? Spoilers abound as we find out.

AIOWiki Podcast #26
July 13, 2020
There’s a lot of humming on this edition of the AIOWiki Podcast, as we see how long Phil Lollar can go without spoiling anything about the Rydell Saga in Part II of the interview. Aside from Lee’s grilling him about Morrie, Phil shares about covering hard topics on Odyssey, the story around “One-in-Ten,” his relationships with the actors and other crew members, the themes behind “The Rydell Revelations,” and how Joss Whedon’s “Angel” is representative of Phil’s existential worldview.

July 13, 2020
As the release of “The Rydell Revelations” approaches, Phil Lollar joins the AIOWiki Podcast (along with Grayson Smith!) for an extensive interview about everything to do with everything. In Part I of this three-and-a-half-hour podcast, Phil talks about his general history as a writer on Odyssey, tips for writing and critiquing, how characters are written onto and off of the show, and much more — plus a “Lightning Round” of random trivia about Phil.

AIOWiki Podcast #24
July 8, 2020
No nonsense this time on the AIOWiki Podcast as Lee and Arista fully unpack the episode “Further from the Truth.” Coming from an objective standpoint, the two reviewers discuss whether the episode was a worthy successor to “A Sacrificial Escape.” Emily’s emotions and maturity, Whit’s inside knowledge, Morrie’s portrayal, and Suzu’s possible guilt all factor in to the discussion in this review.

Settle in for the longest review on the AIOWiki Podcast yet. Arista, Izak, and Lee are back to talk about the next chapter (and Lee’s favorite) in the Rydell Saga, “A Sacrificial Escape.” Yet one of the reviewers doesn’t share the enthusiasm for this critically-acclaimed episode.… The team discusses Whit’s acting, the reason for the escape room’s existence, expectations, and Morrie’s come-uppance.

At long last, the review of Album 65: Expect the Unexpected concludes with “The Good in People.” Izak joins Lee and Arista to break down the fourth episode in the album, also the fourth in the Rydell Saga. Discussed in the review are Olivia’s disrespectfulness, goofs-that-aren’t-goofs, sound design quirks, and a bit of fanboyance.

Album 59 and more
November 11, 2014
It's been quiet on the news front of AIO lately, but there's been a storm of activity today with 3 new products coming out.

First up is Album 59, the title will be Taking the Plunge, we can assume that this will pick up right from where 58 left off. The hard copy is currently due for release in August 2015, with digital and radio releases probably coming shortly before that. Something new with 59 though is that it will only contain 2 CD's instead of the usual 4, meaning that this album will most likely only have 6 episodes instead of 12. It remains to be seen if Album 60 will follow this format in 2016 or if it will be pushed up to make up for the shortened 59 season.

Next up is the first new sampler album in a while, it's based on The Dropbox episode from the OAC and also includes The Chosen One, Part 1 and Part 2. That's interesting because The Chosen One has already been in a sampler album. The sampler is due for release in March and currently does not have a cover image.

Lastly is a new book based on the Jones and Parker detective agency.

There’s something mysterious going on in everyone’s favorite town . . . Odyssey, of course! No mystery is too big or too small for Emily Jones and Matthew Parker. Whether it is helping the new doctor unlock her office safe or helping Mr. Whittaker find paint cans that have mysteriously disappeared, the Jones and Parker Detective Agency is on the case. Who knows what’s in store for these young detectives?

This book compiles 16 of the best stories originally published in Clubhouse magazine into one fun-filled volume. Kids can play detective along with Emily and Matthew as they hear the evidence and examine the clues provided. Filled with humor and fun, this new addition to the Adventures in Odyssey line will be a sure hit with kids.

It's due for release in May of 2015.

April Roundup
April 20, 2014
We're back, after some unfortunate downtime we're pleased to say that the wiki is back and is once again fully functional. We're also pleased to say that our popular Android app is up again too, even has a few new features to go with it.
Over the course of the past month there's been two new podcasts released, Official Podcast 196 (behind the scenes of the new comic) and Official Podcast 197 (The Bible Network deleted scene), be sure to check them out if you haven't yet.
Also released this month was the new Odyssey Adventure Club exclusive episode Drake the Cosmic Copper, FOTF has also released the long awaited Officer Harley episodes to the OAC. Some of these episodes are available for the first time in over 20 years, we're sure that these will be new for many fans out there. Be sure to check back to the club next week when Mission: Unaccomplished, Part 1 is released, it's one of the last episodes to feature Zach Callison as the voice of Matthew Parker.
There's also been some sad news in the last month, first we've learned that the winning script in the college scholarship writing contest A Jay in the Life will not be produced. While the AIO team enjoyed the originality of the script, it took several characters in directions that conflicted with storylines they had already established. Secondly it's been announced that Brock Eastman will be leaving his job with AIO and taking a new job at Compassion International.
Keep checking back for more news in the days ahead, with the release Album 58: The Ties That Bind getting closer we're sure that details will be popping up soon. On the topic of Album 58, the summary has been released,

Comic-Connellsville! The "Let’s Get Together" Festival!
Who knew that two events could trigger so much drama in Odyssey? Wooton’s announcement about a family of detectives leads to suspicion and intrigue. Whit’s challenge of some popular ideas causes a difficult tug-of-war between conviction and compromise. And the surprise arrival of a few friends and former adversaries creates the perfect blend of excitement, comedy, and important life lessons for everyone.

The Ties That Bind contains 12 all-new episodes exploring questions about God’s design for marriage and family, loyalty, redemption, commitment, and love. It’s a collection for your whole family to enjoy and talk about.

Happy Easter.

More Info on A.C.T.S. Contest
April 30, 2013
We now have more info on the summer 2013 contest: A.C.T.S., thanks to a press release on the Focus on the Family website.

Starting in June, the A.C.T.S.! Summer of Service Challenge will encourage kids to complete 12 hours of service over the summer—on their own or with their family or church. Service logs will be available in over 400 participating bookstores throughout the summer, beginning in June. All kids who participate can download a free AIO episode, and kids can also return to stores to collect stickers of favorite Odyssey characters for each hour served.

The challenge sponsors hope that A.C.T.S.! will help children learn the value of giving their time, talents, and abilities to help people in need. The challenge will also remind kids that service is much more than just “doing” – it’s anytime you put someone else’s needs above your own.
"We want to remind kids that they have a part to play in God’s story, and serving is an easy way for everyone to take part in that,” said Jesse Florea, editor of Focus on the Family Clubhouse magazine, AIO’s official magazine. “The challenge is a fun way for kids to learn about serving, but the end goal is that kids will deepen their walk with Jesus Christ through serving Him.” AIO’s goal is for 4,200 kids to sign up to serve, for a total of 50,000 hours of service.

Webcast Launch Party and Video Contest Kick Off Campaign

Adventures in Odyssey is kicking off the campaign via a live launch party webcast on May 22 at 3:30 p.m. MT/5:30 p.m. ET that will include the big reveal of the contest’s grand prize trip location. Two of the show’s actors, Chris Anthony and Katie Leigh, will also talk about their favorite AIO episodes. Viewers can watch the webcast online at

From July 1 – Aug. 16, kids ages 8-15 can also enter the A.C.T.S.! video contest by submitting a two-minute video that shares how they serve and why they would like to be one of the first official Adventures in Odyssey Ambassadors.

Odyssey Club Producer
April 21, 2013
We've recently learned that a new position on the Odyssey team titled 'Odyssey Club Producer' has recently been filled. Here's the job description from the job posting.

The Odyssey Club Producer position exists to organize and coordinate various media development teams ensuring that audio, video, print, web, events, activities, and games combine into cohesive, engaging club member experiences, The Producer needs to have demonstrated abilities across several disciplines, including web development and upkeep, mission organization, relationship, graphic design, process management ect.

Some of the job responsibilities include working with the A.C.T.S. contest, keeping the website up to date, and working with the Executive Producer (Dave Arnold) to brainstorm and develop story lines for cub dramas and developing video documentaries.
From the sound of it there will be some sort of Official online Odyssey Club, this may be in response the the large number of fans that aren't allowed on Facebook. This club will also have dramas, although it's unknown at this time if it will be officially produced dramas or just scripts posted online for club members to preform with their friends. The official Facebook page has been teasing something big coming this fall, this could be what they are hinting towards.
We also believe to know who has been given the position, Brock Eastman, as it's been confirmed that he recently accepted a job as some sort of producer with the Odyssey team. Keep checking back in the coming weeks for more information as it becomes available.
Thanks to The Whit's End Podcast for finding this.

Imagination Station Books
September 18, 2012
There's also been a fair amount of news from the Imagination Station book series that we haven't reported.


First up is book 8 Battle for Cannibal Island. As some of you may notice this is a new title, it was formally "Battle for the Mysterious Island" and before that "Mystery of Starlight Island", this third title will likely stick though as it's nearing release. The cover has also been updated with the new title and slightly revised art. Here's the summary for the book

Patrick and Beth are hurled into the South Pacific during the 1840s and take part in a breathtaking search for the mysterious Starlight Island. The cousins join the clever Scottish pirate hunter Captain Connor Glenn and the crew of the flagship Saint Andrew’s Lance as they hunt the infamous pirate Captain Tobias Dredd. Their search leads them to the emerald-green islands of Fiji, where they attempt to rescue missionary William Cross. But Captain Dredd’s forces attack the island, and Patrick and Cross are kidnapped. Beth and Captain Glenn must save them, but it’s a race against time. And the only hopes they have of finding the Starlight Island rest in their trust in God and a broken telescope that just might reveal more than meets the eye.


Next up is Book 9 Escape to the Hiding Place

Join cousins Beth and Patrick as they arrive in World War II era Holland. They must smuggle a baby by bicycle into the capable hands of Corrie ten Boom at her home in Haarlem. Along the way they hide from Nazi soldiers, meet a Russian surgeon forced into service by the Germans, and encourage two Jewish children who haven't been outside in over three years. The children learn to appreciate the bravery and sacrifice of everyday people who helped the Jews.

Both books 8 and 9 are due for release next month.


In a glimpse from next year we have Book 10 Challenge on the Hill of Fire

Kidnapped by Celtic Druids in 433, Patrick and Beth are headed to certain death when followers of a former Irish Slave (Saint Patrick, called Patritius in this book) save them. The cousins find themselves in the midst of a power struggle between Ireland’s King Logaire, Patritius, and the leader of the Druids, Lochru. A spiritual showdown begins on the Hill of Slane when Patritius builds a fire, challenging the King’s authority. Will Patritius prove to the king that the God of the Bible is the true God? Or will the king take sides with the Druids? The Emerald Isle holds many tales and legends, but this story of truth and standing strong for God is not one to be missed.

Also coming out next year is Book 11 Hunt for the Devil's Dragon, we don't know much about it yet but keep checking back for more information as it becomes available.

Album Repacks
August 22, 2011
There's been some images and rumours floating around different sites lately that we'd like to try and clear up.

  • First of all some people have been saying that the new logo will be appearing on all future repacks. This is not correct, the new logo will only be used for albums 51 and newer while the old logo will be used on all the repacks of Albums 1-50.
  • Secondly some people think that the final covers for the upcoming set of repacks have been released. This is also not true, currently the following cover art images have been released but they are still needing the title, logo and rays.

02art.jpg 23art.jpg 26art.jpg 29art.jpg 34art.jpg
Also, we've confirmed that Album 2 will be getting a new title, Brock Eastman has welcomed fans to venture a guess at the new title on his facebook page.

Another result of 54 being up for download is that the summary for the upcoming Album 55 has been released:

Upcoming Books
March 25, 2011
Earlier this week we brought you news of the upcoming Album 54 and the Blackgaard Chronicles and today we're bringing you news on three upcoming AIO books.
First is the summary for Showdown with the Shepherd:

The key to adventure lies within your imagination! Cousins Patrick and Beth go to the Holy Land in the tenth century BC. Their goal is to get back the ring Hugh stole and return him to 1450s England where he belongs. But troubles await them as soon as they step out of the Imagination Station. First they meet an angry bear and later an angry giant. Set against the backdrop of the David and Goliath story, the cousins learn that having a giant faith is more important than having a giant on your side.

Showdown with the Shepard is written by Brock Eastman and is currently scheduled for an October 2011 release, you can preorder it from
Following that book is book 6 in the The Imagination Station series it's titled Problems in Plymouth, here's the description:

The Imagination Station Adventures continue! Patrick and Beth’s next adventure leads them to Plymouth Plantation in 1621. There they meet William Bradford, Miles Standish, and Chief Massasoit, who are trying to establish peace between the Pilgrims and the Indians. Things are anything but peaceful, however, when a musket is stolen and the Pilgrims conclude the Indians are planning war. Only Patrick and Beth know who the real thief is—the traitor Hugh—and it’s up to the cousins to find him and stop him from causing trouble. When the cousins hear a gunshot during the first Thanksgiving feast, their worst fears are realized. They rush to the Mayflower and try to set right history, even as Hugh desperately tries to change it.

Problems in Plymouth will also be released in October of this year and can also be preordered from
The last book we have news on is the Kidsboro Omni book, it's titled The Fight for Kidsboro and consists of the 4 previously released Kidsboro books, here's the description for it:

Kidsboro is a small town in the woods behind Whit’s End in Odyssey. It’s a nice little place. It has a church, a store, a police station, a bakery, a weekly newspaper . . . and a total of zero citizens over the age of 14. It’s a town run by kids. Ryan Cummings, the mayor, helps enforce the laws, create new job opportunities, and in general, keep the peace in a town where he seems to have lots of friends and only a few enemies. The Kidsboro series teaches not only moral and biblical principles, but also concepts of government, politics, economic principles, the judicial system, United States history, and Bible stories. The Fight for Kidsboro is a compilation of the 4 books from this popular series.

This book is also due on in October and can be preordered here

We have a few new tidbits on Album 53 today, just a reminder that this is all subject to change and none of this will be confirmed until spring when it's on the radio and in stores.

It all beings when a small plane crashes under strange circumstances outside town. The mystery deepens when a

backpack filled with money is found in the woods near Gower's Field, outside of Odyssey. What does all of this have to do with the Green Ring Conspiracy? Whit, Eugene, and Connie have to put together the clues before it's too late to stop a worldwide conspiracy!
