      1. Hi Raphiel, Someone I actually think KAde, a couple podcasts ago suggested that we post Bible verses. So that’s what I’ve been doing since. I encourage y’all to share your fav Bible verses or one’s you’ve been reading to encourage others here.

    1. Oops, sorry guys, I forgot to put my name in the comment above, I have never been this close to first!!!

    2. I just want to tell you a little about the verse I posted above. I want all of you to know that God has a special plan for every one of you , and that we are his children. Hope this has encouraged you!

    1. I Always thought making the sounds would be SUPER cool and fun. Its fascinating how they would have to think of a way to get a new sound, if needed 😀

    1. Guys, don’t be afraid to reply to this person. I mean, what harm could he be? He’s happy, his name is sparky. He’s a giraffe.

      1. Lydia Elisabeth, that is so hilarious! Isn’t this what Mitch called himself in the Novacom Saga so that he would be able to call Connie when everyone thought he was dead??

    1. “Ugh, It was the best of times, and it was the worst of times.”
      “You see! Even Jay learned something!”

      “You just quoted Charles Dickens!”
      “Wrong! It was the beginning of a Tale of Two Cities, which I was reading because there was nothing else to read, and it just happened to be on the shelf that I was looking at, so there!”

    1. I am upset that album 70 Finding a Way is not on iTunes yet. Today is the day that the CD of album 70 is out but not on iTunes yet. I have been waiting for it and looking for it there every Tuesday and Friday’s. I hope that it will come out tomorrow (Wednesday) when the next podcast airs. Or the remaining days of this week. Will you help me find it

    1. Hi Nathan and Jean Guenot. Will you please ask Luke to ask his coworkers to release album 70 Finding a Way to iTunes please so that way I can listen to his episode that he worked on along with the other episodes that are in album 70 Finding a Way? People like me who does not have the club really want to listen to album 70 Finding a Way are upset.

  2. Congratulations, Luke. It was great to hear how you reached out to people years ago that worked on the Odyssey stories and got to know them, and the progression of you career. At times I wanted you to slow down when you were talking so I could grasp everything you were saying. Hope you continue to be blessed and are a blessing in your work.

  3. Quote from “Accidental Dilemma”

    “And then, I will RULE THE WORLD!!! Whahahahah aahahaah….. cough cough…” -the whisperer

    “Yeah, no kidding.” – the whisperer

    1. Me, too!

      If I ever got onto a show like “The voice,” “AGT,” or “American Idol” I would sing Wooton’s song about macaroni. It was amazing 😂😂!!

  5. “This is a song I’ve written for my wife Katrina. Aptly entitled ‘A Song I’ve Written for My Wife Katrina’.”

        Its my fav movie!!!!
        I know aragons a ranger but the ranger part is a reference to the book series RANGERS Apprentice

  21. My top 3 favorite Bernard quotes, 1. Eugene: “Ah, there. Vest, suit, cufflinks, tie.” Bernard: “Let’s change out of these tuxes before we die!”. 2.

    2. I have not listened to any of the episodes from album 70 Finding a Way because it is not on Itunes yet and I am really upset and mad because I want to listen to the new episodes from that album so very bad. I am wondering if you can help me find them on Itunes so that way I can listen to the whole album so that way I can enjoy all of album 70.
