So much for getting back on track! I'm on my last week of the semester, while Sarah is currently swamped in final assignments and exams... so we'll be postponing our review of The Triangled Web II until a later date. I'd like to say we'll have our next podcast out by the weekend, but we really aren't sure that will be feasible. However, we'll do our best to get our next podcast up as fast as we can!

Adventures in Odyssey... on iTunes?!

With the rapidly changing technology, downloading songs and audio books on MP3 is becoming a popular alternative to buying the actual albums. Until recently, Adventures in Odyssey, has lagged behind. Earlier this year, Christian Audio began selling Odyssey albums, from Vol. 1 through Vol. 38. But this didn't solve the problem for fans who wanted to buy only one or two episodes missing from their collection.

In Nicky's voice... until now! Ahaha!

I recently did a search for Odyssey on iTunes and look what I discovered. Currently, there are twenty-three episodes available, representing all the shows on Album 1: The Adventures Begins and Album 2: Stormy Weather (except for Promises, Promises). Upon further examination, it was noted that these episodes were presented by For those unfamiliar with the website, it's essentially one that provides a wide variety of audio books, magazines, newspapers, radio shows, and podcasts for online download. Anyhow, a quick peek at Audible found individuals episode downloads for not only the first two albums, but Album 3: Heroes as well!

They may not have all the albums up on iTunes yet, but this is a great start. To be able to purchase individual episodes will a huge plus for many. At $3 per episode, it's definitely an affordable price for those who only need a couple to complete their collection. Here's hoping they continue adding more episodes over the next few months.

New Cover Art!

Back in March, I mentioned that Album 27: The Search for Whit would be the next repackaged album. This particular collection of episodes was particularly special because it featured the return of the show's most important character. As such, I had high hopes for the cover art. And the artists did not disappoint!

Compared to the original cover art, I definitely think it's an improvement. That being said, I love the 3D look of the new artwork as compared with the cartoon style of the old artwork. This repackage releases June 2008. Your thoughts?

I'm sure most of you were as shocked as I was when Dave posted the cover art for Album 50 on the Town of Odyssey. While it certainly was a nice surprise, it didn't help that it was a small version. Well, we've managed to track down a high-res copy of the artwork for The Best Small Town... and it looks pretty awesome!
