Interviews, Interviews and more Interviews!
October 30, 2010
Over the past few months we've been busy hunting and collecting as many past interviews with Cast and Crew that we could find, and putting them all into one place for easy reading. There are currently 49 interviews that we've found and we'll continue to add to them as more take place. Eventually we plan on providing written transcripts for all the audio interviews out there, but we're not quite ready yet.
A big thanks goes to all of the people who have conducted interviews over the years, including, The Unofficial Adventures in Odyssey Podcast, The Odyssey Scoop, Adventures in Odyssey Head Quarters, The Town of Odyssey, The Soda Fountain, and The Whit's End Podcast and many more...
In the section, you'll find two recent interviews with Nathan Hoobler from earlier this month, where he discusses albums 53, 54, and 55! (You can find a list of spoilers on the 2011 and 2012 Season pages.)
No matter how long you've been a fan of Adventures in Odyssey, there's sure to be at least one interview that you've never come across before, so take a look.
