    Is anyone else commenting?
    @ All my friends on here
    What’s up? What have y’all been doing lately? Did you have a nice Sunday?

    1. Hey Abbi! I had a great Sunday over the weekend we went camping what about you? Never talked to you before wnat to be my friend. have you started school?

      1. I would love to be your friend!!! I didn’t really do anything last weekend. My Dad, siblings, and I took my mom out to her favorite restaurant for her birthday on Saturday.
        Yes I have started school. Have you?

    1. @ Olive way 🐎, do you like horses? Also are you a boy or a girl? I am a girl, and I love horses, although I have never written one with the reins. I really want to though!

  2. I thought this podcast was supposed to be the AVERYS? BTW thelast comment posted on this while im writing this says it was posted at 10 and it is 8 o clock

  3. Hey whats everybodys favorite Food? Mine is seafood i know not really a food but i don’t care.

    1. I don’t really have a favorite food, but I like things that are pickled, some spicy things, and the weirdest one… Is 🧄, yup garlic.😂

    2. I do not prefer seafood! My brother has gotten sick to his stomach the two times that he has eaten shrimp.

    3. My favorite foods are (this is going to be a long list)burgers, sea food (although I haven’t tasted alot)chicken , noodle soup, turkey ,pizza, pork chops , chipsalad yeah I love food

  4. What is everybodys favorite epsoide? Mine is the one about the washingtons getting ready for church and they think they are late but they are early

    1. I love all of the mystery ones like the nova calm, green ring, and in the deep end has some good mystery. I also love the ones where Emily and Matthew were working together on cases. Maury and Susie’s pranks are unbelievable!

  5. I’m so confused . If the podcasts are supposed to come out on Wednesdays, why did it come out on a Tuesday? I don’t know when the podcasts come out, so I can’t try for first and I really would like to. Anyone know why?

    1. hi, I’m doing good! how are you? mostly I’ve been practicing for the musical I’m in, and getting ready for school 🙂
      how about you?

      1. I’m great!!! I’m sorry, but can you explain what a musical is? Is it like a concert?
        I’ve started school already. It has been chaotic.

        1. A musical is basically a play, but with songs. Like all the Disney princess movies are musicals, for example. I hope that makes sense 🙂 The musical I’m in is Anne of Green Gables, have you ever read the books? They’re really good!

          1. I’ve never read Anne of Green Gables.
            Thanks for explaining about the musical.

    1. Same! And part two! When you made this comment, part two might not have been out. If you have not listen to it listen to it now! Too bad that I have already listen to some of these episodes.😞 it just means I’ve been listening online for a long time.

  6. “Drake The comet copper” would be a great screen name. If you scroll down to the bottom of this page, Wooten is holding a comic book titled Drake the comet copper.

  7. At first I did not recognize the a new podcast was out, because the picture is the same when you look. Also, this podcast is out really early! It is about 8 o’clock my time, and it’s already out with comments!

  8. What! Podcast came out on Monday! No wonder no one else is posting yet! I know because at the top it says August 23, 2021. Will more people start commenting when Tuesday rolls around, or are there not very many people because of school? I know a lot of people left!

  9. Oh, I like that one to, Edana. My favorite is probably when Wooten does a contest between Connie and Eugene about who listens better.

  10. hello guys i used to comment for a while when the site was still and they didnt change it yet… some of you might remember me hehe
    i dont know what my fave episode is, im in the club and my faves are usually one of those lol
    there’s one about rumplestilskin, and thats pretty funny

  11. btw, odessy team, your artwork for this club artwork is slightly inaccurate because in korea nobody wears shoes in the house, and usually the floor would be wood floors… and if this is a house in north korea this is a very well to do household, if they even have a computer that is very rare. many people still use walkmans and headphones

    1. That’s really interesting! Thanks for telling us. It might not be polite to criticize their work, but I completely understand that it may not have been meant that way.

      1. Thanks for praying for me. I’m back from taking a break, but I saw that you might be taking a break soon? How are you? I’m doing fine. Praying for you too. I 💜 you.

  • Remember that many children read this page, so we won’t allow comments that are offensive, overly personal, disrespectful, irrelevant, or redundant. 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. Again, think about how Whit would address a problem as opposed to Rodney Rathbone.
  • Due to the number of comments we receive, we can’t respond personally to questions submitted here. If you would like a personal response, please e-mail [email protected] Additionally, please keep comments to the restricted length of 500 characters or less.
