Who makes it?
For nearly 30 years, the Adventures
in Odyssey team has been home to over two dozen writers, producers,
and sound designers. They hail from all corners of the U.S. (and
Canada), and their résumés are as diverse as their origins: some come
from a radio background, some from stage or screen, others from music
studios and television, and a few straight out of college. Although they
don't have a common background, one thing the team has always shared is
a passion for entertaining stories that reveal timeless truths.
Founded for the
support of the family, Focus on the Family began a special radio drama
series in 1987 called Family Portraits.
The show was successful with its short-lived, 13-episode run. It was
because of this mini-series that Adventures in Odyssey became what it
is today. Centered around a grandfatherly inventor named John Avery
Whittaker who owns an ice cream shop for children, Adventures in Odyssey has provided over 700
episodes of solid, Christian entertainment. Eugene Meltsner, Connie Kendall,
Bernard Walton, Tom Riley, Jason Whittaker, and Jack Allen are only a few of
the characters that bring Odyssey to life. The program is geared primarily
for the 8-12 age bracket, however, people well into their thirties, forties,
and later years have enjoyed the show for its quality entertainment and Christian
