Adventures in Odyssey's rich history captured in print

The Odyssey Times is the main newspaper in the town of Odyssey, with long-time editor Dale Jacobs' involvement with the newspaper's success. Throughout Adventures in Odyssey, John Avery Whittaker writes articles for the newspaper (some opinion articles as well) and consistently gives Dale Jacobs the "exclusive" whenever there is big news in town.

The Focus Story
In the 1990's, Focus on the Family produced its own print version of The Odyssey Times newspaper for fans of Adventures in Odyssey to read (Issues 1-6). It was "Always Free" and contained special tie-in stories to the audio series, product promotion, classified ads, and a fun experience for avid fans. It contained references to events and situations which were happening on Adventures in Odyssey at the time. The Odyssey Times is now out of print and considered a rare collector's item. Editions of The Odyssey Times are currently on display at the Focus on the Family Visitor Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Online editions of The Odyssey Times were made available when Adventures in Odyssey's official site launched in 2000 (Editions 7-12). Editions were released periodically for a couple years.

The Scoop Story
Now, we've brought them all to one place for you. We want you to be able to rekindle and experience the memories that many earlier AIO fans have shared. Although Odyssey continues for newer generations of listeners, the archive of Odyssey's early days haven't been forgotten. We've chronicled a majority of editions of the newspaper here, with each article word-for-word and in PDF form. We have not featured every edition of the newspaper quite yet (we are currently missing Issues 1 and 2), so if you have copies of editions we do not have, feel free to photograph them (high-res images preferred) and send them to us. We'd love to share them with the online community!
