More Album Cover Art!

Although it's been nearly two weeks since the live show, I'm still getting over the thrill of being part of such an amazing event. Over the next little while, Sarah and I will be recapping and sharing some of our favorite moments from our time in Colorado Springs. If you have any questions you'd like to ask about the live show or anything else you think we could answer, feel free to drop us a comment on the blog or send us your queries to

Now back to some actual Odyssey news! The lastest album to receive a new, redesigned look is Album 30: Through Thick and Thin.

As an closet chess fanatic, I particularly appreciate this scene from Poor Loser, one of the more popular Bernard and Eugene episodes. This cover is definitely a significant upgrade from the rather uninteresting shot of Whit pulling Jared and Rodney out from a well. It's worth noting, of course, that Eugene appears to be left with only a pawn. What happened to his king? ;o)

An Adventure of a Lifetime

What an incredible experience. It is difficult to put into words the sheer excitement that I felt as I sat down to watch a live recording of an Adventures in Odyssey episode. Having literally grown up with the show, it all felt like seeing a long lost relative for the first time. What a joy it was to see long-time cast members like Chuck Bolte, Will Ryan, Katie Leigh, Dave Madden, and Chris Anthony. Along for the ride were Jess Harnell and Aria Curzon, two of my favorite actors ever.

They also had four surprise guests at the live show, with Donald and Genni Long, Dave Griffin, and Sage Bolte all getting brief cameo appearances. It was a real treat seeing all of the actors and getting an opportunity to talk with them as much as we did! They were all incredibly gracious with their time and they even hung out with us for a couple hours in the hotel lobby at the conclusion of Saturday's crazy day.

Sarah and I also had the opportunity to collaborate with Bob and Jesse, hosts of the Official Podcast, on a few episodes. Over the next several weeks, you'll hear more of went what down over the weekend and what we thought of the event. You won't want to miss the next editions of the Official and Unofficial Podcasts!

One Week!

The end is near. The time has come.

What was once a passing thought is slowly turning into reality. It all begins in exactly one week. I can't believe I'm going to be a part of such an exciting event. To see the faces behind all the voices of my all time favorite show--radio or otherwise--and witness a live recording with hundreds upon hundreds of fans... it's going to be an incredible weekend.

Sarah and I will be on site at the event, so be sure to introduce yourself if you see (or hear) us there. ;o) For those of you who can't make it to the live show, we'll have a few surprises that you won't want to miss!

Keep listening? :D
