We’ve been hearing a lot about the Perkins family lately in Odyssey. Carla and Wyatt first appeared in “The Sandwich Initiative” and the rest of the family joined soon after. Who are these characters? Why did they come to Odyssey? And are they based on real people? Perkins creator Marshal Younger answers these questions and more.

  1. Hey Everyone, wow this is out early! “I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.” -Galations 2:20 hope this encourages you all in your walk!

    1. Depends. Just a game in my opinion. But the number of people who want to be first decreased, you know.

      1. So we just posted first why does l choose it l don’t really care for the Perkins family but l like cone eugnene and whit

  2. This is super storage I checked today and yesterday for the new podcast but only now it showed up anyone else got it late ( yes I reloaded my page )

    1. God always give you things to be grateful for like a home or mom and dad even if you are adopted order not have a dad God is your heavenly father Han

  3. I geus I was half first but It’s ok. It’s not an important competition anyways. It’s just for fun. Whoever invented trying to be first, I would thank them and we really grateful they did invent it cause it’s fun trying to be first.

    1. They are getting sloppy with their podcasts. They used to have really cool ones. Not any more.

  4. “Behold, the Lord God comes with might, and his arms rule for him; behold, his reward is with him, and his recompense before him. He will tend his flock like a shepherd; he will gather his lambs in his arms; he will carry them on his chest, and gently lead those that are young.” Isaiah 40: 10-11
    I hope everyone has a great week!

    1. hey! Thanks so much for posting a Bible verse, it would be so cool if more people would start doing it! It really encourages others.

  5. Will anyone ask Focus on the Family and Adventures in Odyssey producers to release album 70 Finding a Way on Itunes please so that way I can listen to that album right now? I am waiting for it really patiently and now I am getting really annoyed that album 70 Finding a Way is not on Itunes yet. I really want to listen to the new episodes now.

      1. Because since these podcasts are talking about the episodes from album 70 Finding a Way I feel like out of the loop and Bob and Jessie says that it is available for download. That means to me that it is available on Itunes and I have been waiting for it ever since I found out that its available for download back in February and the CD on March 9.

  6. No 😥 @anonymous is😥😥😥😥😥😥😥😥😥😥😥😥😥😥😥😥 @bunny hope

  7. In Psalms 40:3, the Bible says:
    “And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD.”

    May God bless you all!

  9. Hey guys! I was just wondering if anyone else noticed on the album covers, Connie either has a white blouse on or a teal- green shirt. The only albums she does not is in “Days to Remember” or “In Hot Pursuit”, Connie obviously likes to keep it simple?? These are the things I do when I am bored. Look at random things.
    I like Connie a lot.

  10. “My mom doesn’t believe in God and has to iron.”

    “Oh, as punishment?”

  11. “I’ll give you a hint: there is a lot of water involved.”

    “The bathroom?”

    *dying of laughter*
