Odyssey News and Updates

While there may not be any new episodes until Fall 2009, that doesn't mean there isn't a ton of Odyssey news to discuss! First, they've come up with the repackaged version of Album 41: In Hot Pursuit. As is the case with albums 36-41, this one is merely a re-framed version of the original. It's definitely an interesting cover, although I'd never really stopped to consider its significance. Is it just me or does Mitch look a bit too... nerdy? Yes, I know he's supposed to be good with computers, but that doesn't mean the guy has to wear glasses. ;o)

As some of you may know by now, The Truth Chronicles is available for purchase... exclusively from Focus on the Family until mid-2009. You can buy a copy for $25 if you're an American resident. However, if you're fortunate enough to be Canadian, you can get it here for only $17.50. You can bet I'll be ordering my copy soon! If you're more of a try-before-you-buy kind of person, you can listen to the first episode of the Truth Chronicles by checking out

For those of you who are craving for more Odyssey-related content, there's more where that came from... starting, of course, with the Official Podcast. It just released its latest podcast earlier today, so go listen to it! But perhaps the most exciting thing that's out there, the proverbial "new kid" on the block, is the Ceiling Fan. It's a new podcast starring the biggest Odyssey fan, or so he claims. You should check it out. It's pretty sweet. And because I said so.

As far as the Unofficial Podcast goes, we'll be trying to get out an episode out sometime in early October. Stay tuned!

Reliving the Moments

It's now been a full month since the birthday bash took place and yet the memories still linger. I recall being incredibly excited when Paul McCusker came into the studio to record his segment with us for the Official Podcast. It was such an amazing experience meeting someone who has played such an instrumental role in Odyssey's development over the past two decades. I was left speechless... of course, who wouldn't be when Phillip Glossman is talking to you? ;o)

Unofficial Podcast Ep. 47

09.10.08. We're finally back! Although not in a way that you might expect. This podcast is loaded with fan interviews as well as thoughts on favorite moments from the live show. You won't want to miss this one!

I'd also like to take the opportunity to mention that we hit the 300 subscribers plateau yesterday. In addition, we made the iTunes top podcast list for the kids and family category! Our podcast is currently ranked 58th in Canada. We really appreciate all the support we've been getting and hope to continue providing more riveting discussion on Odyssey. ;)

Album 25 Repackaged!

Whenever people are asked to name their favorite collection of episodes, it is inevitable that the Blackgaard Saga will be mentioned. Not only did it bring to the forefront perhaps the most memorable villain in Odyssey history, it also brought one of the most cherished characters to Christ. All while centering around the place where it all started... Whit's End. It isn't hard to see, then, why Album 25: Darkness Before Dawn has been so highly touted by Odyssey fans.

Now the big question is whether or not the listeners will enjoy the redesign! For the record, I'm rather pleased with the updated cover art. But what do you think? :o)

The repackaged album is scheduled to release in November.
