The dynamic siblings Morrie and Suzu Rydell work together… and apart

There is plenty of story ahead for Morrie and Suzu Rydell. Atticus Shaffer (voice of Morrie) and April Hong (voice of Suzu) share their journey together from the beginning to the climactic “The Rydell Revelations” to last album’s “Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off” to the upcoming adventure “The Team.”

      1. I agree!!! She has ( actually ) has a crush on Nelson Swanson! She also calls chocolate “chock-a-wety”!
        She is sooo cute!

    1. Who here likes Suzu Rydell? Okay,
      Who here likes Nelson Swanson? Good!
      Who here thinks they both would like each other? If you think so, join the “Ship Snelson! (Nelson+Suzu=❤️)” chat! Just keep on replying from this text, and join the chat!

  1. Hi Odyssey fans! Here’s a Bible verse that has really encouraged me this week. Galatians 5:13-14 For you, brothers, were called to freedom; but do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh. Rather, serve one another in love. For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Pls share verses!

  2. first maybe! 😊 hope everyone has a great week! and i Love Morrie and Suzu episodes!!! sorry that was random 😋

  3. This was a really fun and awesome Podcast !! I loved listing to it!! Thanks Bob and Jesse !!

  4. This should be the totally random question page ,but we should ask the questions to a commenter

    1. You mean the JONES mysteries.
      They broke up in A Sacrificial Escape.

    1. Hey, welcome to the family!☺ Jesus loves YOU! I’m also a Christian! Can I ask you how you found Christ?

  5. I can’t wait to hear the one where Emily decides if she is going to join Suzu and Morri!

  6. The Rydell mysteries have been very interesting, and have kept both my sister and I on the literal edge of our seats. Keep it coming, Adventures in Odyssey!

    P.S. Odyssey is just about my sister’s and my favorite thing.

  9. Honestly, i love everything in Adventures in Odyssy, when i first started listening to it was AMAZING! I was probably somewhere at about the age of 5 or 6. Thank you so much for making it!!!

  10. Again, if you got my first comment you already know i have nothing to say against this. i just forgot to write that i to make podcasts, so does my friend, hers are out mine aren’t just yet all i like to writ books! have a nice day!!!!

  11. First? Also could you guys air The Ties that bind? I haven’t heard it, and I really want to. I hear it is really good. I am a huge fan of Adventures in Odyssey.

    1. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There is another Hannah on here!!! Hannah, can we be friends?????????? My name is Hannah too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh my goodness!! Heavens knows how ecstatic I am!!!! I have met a twelfth person with my name. I’M GOING CRAZY OVER HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    2. @Hannah. LETS BE FRIENDS, GOT IT??????????????????????? How many siblings do you have, I have four
      Moderators, I know what you said about using multiple usernames but I am putting a thumbs up emoji next to my name from now on, FYI

          1. So, Hannah, can you and I negotiate? Obviously we have the same name, right? I know on your last comment you put “second one on this website” but that is kind of tedious. I will put Hannah U (since that’s my middle name) next to any of my comments to prevent confusion if that OK with you. It’s cool we have the same name, though, that’s awesome!!

    1. Lol “I’m just me” When u have memorized the whole “I’m Just Me” song you’re officially a crazy fan of Jules (me and my younger sis, lol)

      1. I used to be a huge Jules fan, but I honestly don’t like her anymore. In my opinion she’s kinda stuck up and rebellious. Does anyone here agree? Despite that, I don’t hate her, and I do.ike the song “I’m Just Me.” Please play it on a podcast sometime!!!!!!!!!
        ~Politely, Hannah

    1. Album 71 A Slippery Slope will come to the club on July of this year and then for digital download on September of this year as well. Finally the CD will come out on October 5.

  12. I’m excited to hear this new episode. I’ve been listening to the Rydell Saga from the start.

  13. Probably not first but that’s fine because I’m probably in the top fifty!

  14. Oh wow I thought the actors would know a whole lot about the actors they play before they act…. I learned something new

  15. I think I already said first, but by the time this comes out my FIRST will probably be out to!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  16. Congrats Eleanor! On first you know. does eneyone have guineae pigs? For pets????? I do. I know my speiiling isnt good but you can guess mostly? Hope? Love Odysseus.
    Sume times– OK lots i mispell!!!! but i try impreve ever I can. My grammar is not that good BUT I try!!! And I improve lots!!! LOL! Hope you understend.

  17. Now that we listened to albums 69 and 70 which is your favorite Rydell Saga episodes between The Rydell Revelations and Let’s Call The Whole Thing Off? For me even though I enjoyed both of them I think it is a toss up between the two episodes.

  21. I also love all of those things (Except for photography, I’ve never really tried it.”! Especially calligraphy and reading!

    1. @pennybasset,what are some of your favorite books?
      Have any of you girls read Before You Meet Prince Charming by Sarah mally? i really want to get it.

    1. Hi Hannah, you may need to try looking at the guidelines in another browser if they aren’t coming up for you. You (or a parent) can always call us at 800-232-6459 to work out any technical issues you are having. Have a blessed day!

  23. @sophia
    Great! I love writing, drawing, photography (also!), Doing makeup and hair, playing piano and violin, Making movies/YouTube videos, Gymnastics, Crafts, and I love playing outside also! We have a lot of acres and trails and streams!

    1. You like gymnastics, too? I can do a full split and I can almost do a backhand spring, believe it or not!! I don’t take acrobatics or gymnastics I have natural God-given talent. I have a few friends that take an acrobatics class and I have another friend who has been in gymnastics for 7 years she can do a backflip. I know the Bible says not

    2. CONT.
      but I am envious of her skill, she can do a front flip too and can down in a full split in all directions which is far beyond me. Lydia Elisabeth can you and I be friends? Wait, I will find you…

    3. Artsy girl, i am not the most athletic person, so i dont really do gymnastics. I dont wear makeup but i love doing hair! thats cool you do youtube videos. What are they about?

  24. Has anyone here gone camping this year? My American Heritage Girls Troop went on one with Trail Life USA, but we didn’t go we went on a family vacation instead. I would tell you all what troop I am registered in, but I don’t know if that is against the guidelines or not. Does anyone else here belong to American Heritage Girls or Trail Life USA?

  25. The next podcast comes out in two days!!!!! Who’s ready to stay up until midnight to be the first one? (LOL)

  26. I am confused. Why are you hesitating to become a Christian? If it is something personal don’t tell me, I understand.

    P.S. 🙏🏾 Becoming a Christian feels really good. You’ll feel a lot better once you become one

  27. So, guys please pray for my neighbor. I won’t post her name for privacy issues, but she is dealing with a friend of hers who is cussing a lot and she is getting in trouble for it. She goes to public school and she has to deal with bullies. Please pray for her, I am putting it as Anonymous cause I don’t want to be a gossip

    1. I will pray for your neighbor. I have a friend who says her friends also cuss. 😦

  28. I love the TRQ’s. My least favorite month is probably August too like Atticus. But honestly, I like every month. I like January, because it’s cold and fun
    February, because I like Valentines Day and getting candy and telling people how much I love them
    March, because that’s when I get to do fun spring activities
    April, same as March

  29. CONT.
    July, because I love the 4th and getting together with relatives
    August, iffy
    September, School Starts
    October, fall is so pretty!!
    November, Thanksgiving is amazing
    December, Christmas is the best going to parties

  30. In the other side of the glass it never mentions how old the guard new Mr. Whitaker‘s name

  31. God morning everyone. ‘May the Lord bless your going out and your coming in from this time forth and forevermore.’
    Have an amazing day!! God loves you very much.

  32. Is anyone here homeschooled? I love being homeschooled, and when I do handwriting, I love listening to adventures in odyssey!

    1. I am too! I hadn’t thought of listening to odyssey while doing handwriting, thanks for the idea!

  33. What is everyone’s favorite podcast, or favorite episode? I honestly don’t have a favorite, but I am curious about others.

  34. Hi guys, here’s a great bible verse

    1 John 4:6

    6 We are from God, and whoever knows God listens to us; but whoever is not from God does not listen to us. This is how we recognize the Spirit of truth and the spirit of falsehood.

  35. I love Morrie and Suzu episodes!
    P.S. Why is everyone commenting “first”? XD

  36. Jules Kendall Fans:

    Did any of you have the idea to ask AIO to make a music album of all of her songs? Would any one else like that?

    Reply to this message if you would!

  37. Anybody Buck Oliver fans? I am! i love his life story. The only Buck episodes I haven’t heard are Ties That Bind. Please, Please, Please, AIO, Please air those on the radio.

    1. Yes I Love Buck!!😄💞 but I actually haven’t heard that many episodes that he is in but I know his life story

  38. Here’s a bible verse I hope encourages you all:
    Proverbs 30: 5
    Every word of God is pure he is a shield to them that put their trust in them.

    LOVE YOU ALL!!!!!!!!!👧🏾👧🏾😊


    God’s loved is unimaginable and amazing.

    1. I agree! i became a Christian when i was 7 years old and i got baptised when it became 2020.

  40. Hi! i’m a BIG fan of Adventures in odyssey! I got the Mega Pack as well. I HAVE SOO MANY ALBUMS!! anyway, do any of u play Minecraft Hypixel? if not that’s ok. <3

  41. i love listening to adventures in oddessy especialy about emily and morrie and suzu

  42. Its so weird to hear the voices of Morrie and Suzu talking out of character. You get used to them always being one way then suddenly they act like the actual actor. Of course that happens in nearly all the podcasts, but whenever its a newer character for the first time it sounds odd for a bit. 🙃

    1. Have you ever watched God’s not dead?

      It is a GREAT movie!

  43. TRQ: What is your least favorite day of the month? Like 1, 2, 3, ….

  44. Hello! Who are your guy’s favorite adventure in odyssey character?
    Mine are:
    Washington Family
    Parker Family
    Morrie + Suzu

  45. Hi everyone Let’s call the whole thing off was a awesome episode! I can’t wait to hear more

  46. What’s your favorite album?
    Mine is probably album 44, Eugene returns.

  47. I love this! Thank you for doing these podcasts. It is funny because the guy that plays Morrie sounds like Morrie, but April, Suzu, doesn’t sound like Suzu. They are talented.
