    1. Hey I’m Kaylee I’m obsessed with aio! Love love love what y’all are doing. Connie needs to get married’

      1. true!!! she almost got married about 5 times. in back to bethlehem, she almost got married to a roman legion, and a zealot.

      2. YESSSSSS. Please read my message, AIO writers (lol):
        Connie kinda needs to get married
        The Washington family needs to make a big return (they were the BEST)
        CONTINUE THE THINGS YOU ARE DOING!! You guys have helped a lot of people and provided good entertainment for the people who care about what they’re doing. Sorry if that sounded demanding, haha

    1. I can’t believe I got second! That’s the closest I’ve ever gotten to first! And congratulations a.v. on getting first!

  1. Wow, how did the come out so early? Even with the time zone difference, it’s always come out on Wednesday before for me…strange

      1. Actually, in “Truth, Trivia, and Trina”
        There is a trivia question about Eugene’s eye color and it’s revealed they his eye color is periwinkle blue.

    1. I don’t believe in any kind of dating until you are eighteen because why date if you have no intention of marrying that person. You date because you think that you might want to marry that person and would like to get to know them better not because it’s “cool” to have an *opposite gender*-friend.

      And also, true love is the kind of love you have for your family not some strong romantic emotion.

      1. Wow I totally agree with all that you just said! Although I believe that having friends of the opposite gender without having any kind of romantic intention towards them is good for you.

      2. I agree too and I also think that being just friends with the opposite gender is okay if you are just friends. I remember that there are different kinds of love, such as agape and brotherly love.

    2. i love california dreams,hence my it love it love it! hey, why haven’t my comments been posted yet?guess what happened last night,i used f i v e pages in one journal entry and i got writers’ cramp!somebody,when my comments get posted,will you guys read them?pllleeeaaassseee?i realy want friends.i’m gonna go now bye <3

  2. I am 13 years old and have a periwinkle parakeet who is named Anthony. I am one of five kids and hope to become a marine mammal trainer at the Georgia Aquarium. Plus I am VERY passionate about dolphins.

    1. Oh thats so cool Brynne Eliana ! i hope your dream to work at the Georgia aquarium comes true!!😊💕

  3. Hi everyone!
    Hope I can see some of the people in the last podcast! I am listening to the new odyssey episode right now, it came out today for club members! So excited! 😃

    1. It’s from the poem ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas (at least I think that’s what it’s called…)

    2. It’s From “its a wonderful life!”
      A timeless classic!
      btw I love odyssey we have tapes from when my mom was a kid!

  4. I know what you mean. Arkansas weather is unpredictable! Last night it was going to snow a quarter of an inch, but within in hour, it went up to 33 degrees and only snow for ten minutes!

    1. Johanna I live in Arkansas too and I thought that was so annoying because when we left the park it was starting to snow and when we got home it had already stopped!

      1. Me (the other one) how long have you been listening to Odyssey? I have been listening for 5 or 6 years. Who introduced Odyssey to you?

        1. I’ve been listening since I was really little, so probably 10 or 11 years. My mom introduced it to us, because she started listening when she was a kid.

  5. hey y’all! We are supposed to get a foot to a foot and a half of snow today!
    @SMILE, what kind of camera do you have? I have a canon ixus. Its small but takes great pictures!

    1. Cool! Did you have fun in the snow?

      We got 8 inches at my house and built a couple of snowmen and had a snowball fight and sledded down a hill and drank hot chocolate…and…and…

      In other words I had a ton of fun! 😁

    1. I live in Colorado and its mostly dry and hot, the sun sets at about 8:30(pm) in this time of year.
      Oh and also I hope everyone has a great summer vacation!!!! God Bless!!!!!❤️

  6. i just listened to the first episode of the new album and i LOOOVVVEE it i highly reccomend it

    1. I don’t have the club either. But when we tried to get the free trail, it was wierd. Why do we have to fill out so much information when doing the free trail, but only have to write a few things when buying the club?

  7. Only 8 days left till Christmas I’m so sad most people are happy but I like Christmas time just as Much as Christmas Day if not more

      1. Yes, Ryan. I think it is important to realize that God is omnipotent. If God wants something to happen, it will happen.

        (Keep reading next comment)

      2. **(Continued)**

        Romans 8:28 says: “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”

        (To be continued)

      3. **(Continued)**

        I think it is also important to realize that Romans 8:28 does not say that God will immediately work all things for our good. Sometimes he gives us trials to strengthen us before he works everything out.

  8. Um there was only one blackgarrd chronicle that released this year.I should know because I ask for each one whenever it is my birthday or christmas.I am 100% sure I am book getting the fifth book for christmas.

  9. I think that it was supposed to be periwinkle blue. If you listen to Truth Trivia and Trina.

  10. Actually if you listen to the episode where Eugene and Katrina meet she says that he has Periwinkle Blue eyes.


  12. pedal. petal!!!!!!!!! Oh my word, I forgot how funny this parody is!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  13. Hey, when are you guys going to give away another free episode? It’s been soo long. Just wondering.

  14. Hi Adventures in Odyssey fans! Like so many of you, our comment moderators are spending the holidays with their families instead of in front of their computers. Therefore, comments will not be approved between now and January 4. Please do feel free to comment – but just know that new comments won’t be posted until the new year. Merry Christmas!

    1. You are so cool! Thank you for being one of the only odyssey members who comments on here and for all you do on the show!

  15. My family just watched It’s A Wonderful Life and then I listened to It’s A Pokenberry Christmas!

  16. Man, in Christmas bells, the death of Fanny Longfellow is and was traumatic and heartbreaking! “And in despair I bowed my head, there is no peace on earth I said, for hate is strong and mocks the song of peace on earth goodwill to men. Does that not reflect, the world today?

    1. He’s in jail. How is he supposed to come back? The Labyrinth happened really recently. It’s too soon.

  17. The “seargant york, part 4” is acting up for me, and I don’t know why. It keeps playing the next episode instead of the one that I play.

  18. I’m a texas girl too lol
    It’s like every time they say it’s gonna snow they end up being like never mind it texas!
    Texas weather is well…
    I guess it’s ok tho because I can’t stand super cold weather unless I’m SUPER bundled up but then I end up being to hot so it’s not really effective!🙃

  19. Which one is different? 👩🏻‍🌾👩🏻‍🌾👩🏻‍🌾👩🏻‍🌾👩🏻‍🌾👩🏻‍🌾👩🏻‍🌾👩🏻‍🌾👨🏻‍🌾👩🏻‍🌾👩🏻‍🌾👩🏻‍🌾👩🏻‍🌾👩🏻‍🌾👩🏻‍🌾👩🏻‍🌾

  20. I love the Alvin York aio! I have read a book about him and we watched a movie on youtube called “Sergeant York”.
    It was a great family movie!

I get nightmares all the time. my family just moved to a new church and I keep dreaming about our old one. the dreams aren’t, like, scary but they make me very lonely and “church-sick” 😭😭😭😢(homesick😊)

  21. Why do they keep removing comments? I answered a girl on the new page and then they took her comment away but not mine so it looks like I am just randomly commenting stuff!
