Notes:

This episode was released as a special sampler to introduce new listeners to Adventures in Odyssey. It's interesting to note that Chris Anthony's appearance in the town of Odyssey and conversing with the main characters is a series first. She appeared in earlier episodes talking with characters that fit only within the show's wrap-arounds... never Whit, Connie, or Eugene. This episode is merely a special audio introductory episode and is not intended to fit within the audio series.
