#30 Nov 22 2020 41:57 In Conclusion

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.

#29 Aug 22 2020 191:32 Review of “The Rydell Revelations, Part 3” ft. Phil Lollar

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?”

#28 Aug 9 2020 132:11 Review of “The Rydell Revelations, Part 2”

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.

#27 Jul 21 2020 112:19 Review of “The Rydell Revelations, Part 1”

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.

#26 Jul 13 2020 128:02 Interview with Phil Lollar, Part 2 ft. Grayson Smith

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.

#25 Jul 13 2020 83:02 Interview with Phil Lollar, Part 1 ft. Grayson Smith

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.

#24 Jul 8 2020 135:21 Review of “Further from the Truth”

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.

#23 Jun 29 2020 115:23 Review of “A Sacrificial Escape”

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.

#22 Jun 7 2020 56:34 Review of “The Good in People”

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.

Four reviewers at once take on “The Toy” in this edition of the AIOWiki Podcast. Hannah Morgan joins Lee, Arista, and Gracie to discuss Phil Lollar’s first episode in Album 65. Among the topics discussed are Connie’s character development, Wooton’s mental health, and Lee’s annoyance at the Adventures in Odyssey Club.

#20 Dec 22 2019 27:35 Review of “The Sandwich Initiative”

As the team continues the review of Album 65: Expect the Unexpected, things get a little off-script for the review of “The Sandwich Initiative.” Arista, Lee, and Gracie discuss the voices of the Parkers, how substantial an episode about a sandwich can be, and getting swamped in flies (among other things).
