Series Synopsis: Adventures in Odyssey (AIO) is an award-winning audio drama series created for kids ages 8-12 and enjoyed by the whole family.  The episodes teach lasting truths and bring biblical principles to life, with just the right balance of fun, faith and imagination.  The stories are brought to life by actors who make you feel like part of the experience and teach kids how to deepen their relationship with Jesus.

Episodes often start with the grandfatherly Mr. Whittaker (“Whit”), who runs an ice cream shop called Whit’s End. Young friends from all over town come to Whit for advice, and his employees (perky Connie Kendall and genius Eugene Meltsner) often learn as much as the kids! And Wooton Bassett, the zany, fun loving mail man, helps the kids in his own unique way. 

Adventures in Odyssey is one of the longest-running audio dramas in the world. Launched in 1987, the show has released 74 mainstream episode collections totaling over 900 episodes. The show was created by Phil Lollar and Steve Harris.
