The Deep End: Now Available for Download



If you've been keeping up with Adventures in Odyssey news this week, then you might already know that Album 55, The Deep End, is now available for download in the U.S.


Jason Whittaker discovers a life-threatening plot in the works after he tracks the villainous Mr. Grote to London. In Odyssey, rumors fly when a wedding brochure is mistaken for an announcement and everyone thinks Connie is getting married. Eugene and Katrina hear unsettling news about their future. And Kids Radio tells the exciting story about how a back-country man with a simple desire for peace winds up on the front lines of World War I. Amidst all of the conflict and comedy, our pals in Odyssey learn that being in over their heads can be a very touching and funny experience when God is put in the center of it all.

The Ceiling Fan Launches Season 4



Fans of the ever-growing Ceiling Fan Podcast are in for an interesting continuation of an epic series that started with Season 3.


When Phil is visited by an old associate, he learns that protecting the ones closest to him may mean facing the dark truth of his past. Are things what they seem? Find out in this dramatic continuation of the M'Kalister Park Saga. Season 4 has begun.


An innocent band tour has evolved into a series of unexpected twists and turns as the show's characters find themselves on a confusing adventure. If you're new to The Ceiling Fan, it follows fictional characters Ethan Daniels, Phil Jinkus, and a host of others. The best part is that it's inspired by Adventures in Odyssey. Ethan Daniels, self-proclaimed "biggest Odyssey fan", ironically knows very little about the show he claims to be a die-hard of.
