    1. I wonder why everyone want to be first . It’s not like u get a prize if your first .🤨
      But I guess that is just me that thinks that being first doesn’t matter

    1. OH MY GOODNESS!!! I LOVE the mandalorian!!! Personally I don’t like calling him grogu, he will always be baby yoda! lol

  1. You know, instead of trying to be first,.we should quote verses instead of thinking about ourselves. Sorry, just thought this might help.

    1. Hey Elena, the verses idea is really cool! That is actually my favorite verse as well. We know when the new podcasts come out because they are posted every other Wednesday.

      1. Say thanks to KAde. 🙂 Thanks so much, I love 1 Timothy 4:12 so much too! Thanks for the info! Like I said, it would be awesome if everyone would post their fav Bible verse!

    2. Elena: it is not on a certain time or day but last time it was released on Dec. 30 for “House Guest” this podcast was released on Jan. 13 for “Meet Kyle the Whit Award Winner”
      So it kind of isn’t on just one day. I just check the website every morning and if there is a podcast I will type in.

  2. Hi! Last podcast someone named KAde posted this comment:
    “I wish people wouldn’t say stuff like “First” or “Hi.” I wish people would post about Bible verses and theological issues.”

    The idea is great, and I would love if people would start doing this. I will post my Bible verse that I would like to share with you all in another comment below.

  3. “Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.” – 1 Timothy 4:12 This is one of my favorite Bible verses, hope it inspires you!

  4. “Hide? I am French, we do not hide! Especially not in such small spaces!”

    “This woman is a fraud!’
    “You, sir, are a fraud!”
    “What!? You cannot call me a fraud when I am calling you a fraud! What is this, kindergarten recess?!’

    Unfortunately, it’s not as funny without the accent.

    1. I still think it’s funny, lol. If you guys are wondering, I think this quote is from Something Old, Something New Part 2

  5. Had anyone seen a comment posted from my friend who posted as “Zendaya Saanvi M.”? She posted from my computer and I don’t think her comment showed up. I was wondering if AIO thought that I was posting under multiple names.

  6. @ Lydia Elisabeth
    Sorry I haven’t seen your friends post, 🙁
    But it’s really good to hear from you all!
    Do you guys have the AIO app? Cuz if you do then they are commenting on what you would like odyssey to do differently or what they do awesomely, anyway, just wondering if any of you saw that on the app.
    Thanks AIO Staff, you are so Awesome! 😃

  7. The only thing I didn’t like about the app commenting, is hat your post comes out in like 1 hour, which means there are A LOT of posts, it’s hard to find your own post. But it’s cool to se what people think about odyssey!

  8. But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere.
    -James 3:17

    1. @A Friend, Thanks so much for posting a Bible verse!! You picked a really nice one. The more people that post Bible verses, the better!

  9. Did you know that there is sarcasm in the Bible? In Job, after his friends have told him everything he is doing wrong, and blah blah blah blah blah 😁, Job answers them and says, “No doubt but YE are the people, and wisdom shall die with you.”

    Basically saying, “Oh, you are SO smart! When you die the world will be SO depraved of your knowledge!”

  10. “hello you’ve reached Wooten Bassett’s ear, if you’ll kindly say something I’ll say something back.”

  11. “Yeah! Cut off the bad guy’s head when God says to!”


    “Never throw spears at harpists?”

  12. Has anyone here read Psalm 23? I think it is a very comforting verse! I think it means that we should trust God whatever happens even if we are killed because of our faith. God loves his chosen people. And if we are killed it will be better for you if you are a christian and truly follow Christ because you will go to heaven!

Think about the language that’s used by characters on Adventures in Odyssey. If Whit or Connie wouldn’t say it, please don’t write it.Constructive criticism or negative comments are fine, but mean comments aren’t.
