Hello, everyone, and welcome to the Imagination Station. This is my new links page containing different Adventures in Odyssey fan sites collected into one place for your maximum reading enjoyment.
Adventure Log: Which One Will You Take?
The Unofficial Adventures in Odyssey Blog, run by Wooton Bassett, is a blog that gives the typical news on Odyssey, besides reviewing every album. They have occassional trivia facts, besides a poll, and links to the best Adventures in Odyssey fan sites out there. The link is http://unofficialaioblog.blogspot.com/
The Boredom Buster Podcast is my most favorite Adventures in Odyssey podcast out there. It is hosted by brother and sister Noah and Hallie. The goal of the podcast is to review each Adventures in Odyssey episode, occassionally interviewing an actor in an episode. They also have an amazing website. The link is http://boredombusterpodcast.weebly.com/index
The Adventures in Odyssey Wiki is, well, a wiki for Adventures in Odyssey. It's kind of self-explanatory. This is a really awesome site. With over two thousand articles, it's my source for finding things like websites or characters. There's a page for every episode, besides having a page for most of the characters. The link is http://www.aiowiki.com/
The Adventures in Odyssey Blog is one of the most reliable Odyssey fan sites on the Internet. This blog is one of the longest running Odyssey sites out there. They have news updates, plus Odyssey-themed wallpaper and a "Blogcast" that has more than thirty five episodes. The link is
The Odyssey Scoop is basically everyone's favorite Odyssey fan site. It is one of the oldest Odyssey fan sites on the Internet, being started just a couple of months after the Official Site. Everything you could possibly want is on this site. An impressive collection of articles, which has been added to for eight years, is one of my favorite features, and the Soda Shop Message Boards, which is the place you want to go if you want strictly Odyssey talk. The link is http://www.odysseyscoop.com/ .
If you go to the Odyssey Scoop, you will most likely know the name of Ben Warren, or as I call him, Master Scoop Reviewer. However, he also runs a blog called "The Changing Times". The purpose of his blog is "to comment on and critique Adventures in Odyssey's newest period of change". Besides his amazing reviews, in which he dissects everything piece by piece, and he does that in every episode, he has some Odyssey news. But, it is mostly reviews, because that's what it was made for.

The Voice of Odyssey, run by Christian A., is an Adventures in Odyssey blog that is quite popular among Odyssey fans. You get simple, down-to-earth reviews from somebody who does his homework. He listens to the episode, and then reads other people's opinions on what they thought of it before giving you his. He also does reviews on characters, something that, as far as I know, is not done on any other Odyssey fan website. The link is http://thevoiceofodyssey.blogspot.com/ .
The Adventures in Odyssey Update, my main source for news, truly is a spectacular site. If you want any kind of Odyssey news, go to this site. Since I've been using it, there hasn't been a day when it hasn't been updated. All upcoming Odyssey releases are on the home page. Besides that, there are editorials, which are very well written, and pages where you can rate every album, book, or other Odyssey product on a scale of 1 to 10. The link is http://aioupdate.weebly.com/index.html .
Down Odyssey Lane is a website put together by JoyfulG, and is actually quite nice. It's not flashy or overbearing. As you can see by the logo, it's a nice refreshing alternative to other websites. The website has a blog and actor biographies. There's more to come, though. The link is
Just Another AIO Blog is a blog that's been in dormancy for a while, but is now back in the swing of things again. It is run by "Alex Jefferson", and it has an interesting format. During the week he gives news, on Saturday he does an episode review, and on Sunday he does a feature. The link is http://justanotheraioblog.blogspot.com/
The Whit's End Podcast was started in April of 2008, and was inspired by The Unofficial Adventures in Odyssey Podcast. It is the longest running fan podcast and the fan podcast with the most episodes, and the second most episodes of any Odyssey podcast, behind the Official Podcast only. As their home page says, "While it may not be the most popular podcast out there, if you listen, you are sure to hear something you like." The link is http://thewepodcast.com/
Whit's End is Adventures in Odyssey's official home on the World Wide Web. Functioning for twelve years and running, it has all the latest Odyssey news and The Official Podcast, some interesting features, and a section called The Vault. The Vault is a place you can browse for hours. It's unparalled in the Odyssey fan site world. The link is http://www.whitsend.org
The Odyssey Library is an amazing site. I've only been to it a couple of times, but what I've seen of it is fantastic. Everything is set up in a very orderly fashion, much like a library. There are pages listing themes in Odyssey, Scriptures used in Odyssey, Odyssey sagas, and a list of Odyssey terms. The link is http://www.aiolib.com/ .
The Campbell County Message Boards are amazing. Besides being mainly focused on Adventures in Odyssey, it has a forum for games and contests, and a currency system where you can buy Odyssey items. The link is http://www.campbellcountymb.com/ .
The Soda Shop is the place you want to go for strict Odyssey talk. Though it is the smallest Odyssey message board, if you try it you'll like it. The link is http://www.odysseyscoop.com/forum/ .
The Town of Odyssey Message Boards is the largest of the three, and the most non-Odyssey related. For mostly general conversation, with a sprinkling of Odyssey-related talk, this is the place for you. Also, the board's setup is like a community, with certain officials, and town elections. The link is http://thetoo.com/ .
Dave's AIO Blog is very unique, and you can get a very interesting perspective. Dave is a first-generation Odyssey fan, and he feels very different about modern day Adventures in Odyssey. Probably the most unique feature with his blog is he records his opinions on episodes and puts them on his blog. It's like The Changing Times, but on audio. The link is http://davesaioblog.blogspot.com/ .
Ou of COntrol in Odyssey is a blog run by Josh and Ally Ko. This is one of the most unique and well-written Odyssey blogs ever made. Their articles can range anywhere from talking about how much they love Odyssey to comparing Odyssey with things in real life. One of their current projects is reviewing the Family Portraits series. The link is http://odysseyoutofcontrol.blogspot.com/ .
The Campbell County Connection is a blog run by Adventures in Odyssey fan Freddy Jay. There's lots of amazing stuff, and his posts are very entertaining. He also has reviews and wallpaper on his site, and a biographical page. His blog certainly is one of the older and more respected of the Adventures in Odyssey online community. The link is http://fjayodysseyreport.blogspot.com/ .
Though the Unofficial Adventures in Odyssey Podcast has been out of service for over two years, it had a massive impact on the Adventures in Odyssey fan community, and its episodes continue to be listened to. The blog, though mostly dormant, is still occassionally updated by Sarah, iving occassional Odyssey news, besides reports of what's going on in the former podcast host's lives. The link is http://www.aiofanpodcast.blogspot.com/ .
The Ceiling Fan Podcast is an Adventures in Odyssey themed podcast that gets really wild sometimes. Its website claims it to be a "satirical Adventures in Odyssey fan podcast". The show follows the course of self-proclaimed "biggest Adventures in Odyssey fan" Ethan Daniels. The show has some pretty wacky storylines, and is also the creator of the hit album "M'Kalister Park". The link is http://www.ceilingfanpodcast.com/ .
Abby and Mandie's Adventures in Odyssey Podcast finally has its own website. The website does not have a blog, it is all about the podcasts. However, Abby and Mandie also have quite a collection of Adventures in Odyssey fan videos. Those videos are on the site, too. The link is http://abbyandmandieshow.cluhost.info/ .
A Town Called Odyssey is run by Katrina Meltsner, the sister of Wooton Bassett from the Unofficial Adventures in Odyssey Blog. Though the posts may not be long, they sure pack a lot of opinion, because Katrina isn't shy about voicing her opinions on Adventures in Odyssey. If you like short, concise posts, or if you want just a fan's opinions, go to A Town Called Odyssey. The link is http://atowncalledodyssey.blogspot.com/ .
The Adventures in Odyssey Daily News is run by someone calling himself Skylerfan. The goal of the blog is to give a daily word on everyone's favorite radio drama. The link is http://taiodn.blogspot.com/ .
Adventures in Odyssey Thoughts is a blog run by Victoria Donahue. Though not the most frequently updated blog, her posts are some of the highest quality. One of the most unique features of her blog is that she uses pictures of video clips to elaborate on what she thinks happened in an episode or what her reactions were. The link is http://aiothoughts.blogspot.com/ .
Adventures in Odyssey: Odds and Ends is your typical Adventures in Odyssey fan site, but different. It is done by Audrey, a funny and wacky Odyssey nerd who puts a crazy twist on her site with her opinions. The link is http://aio-oddsandends.blogspot.com/
World of Odyssey Quotes is a fan site run by AIO Quote Guy. Two quotes a day are posted, ranging from Album 1 to the present, and from an even larger range of characters. The link is http://worldofaioquotes.weebly.com/index.html
The Cryin' Bryan Dern Blog is a half-Odyssey, half-general blog run by a blogger under the aliases of "Mr. Whit's End" and "Mr. Dern." If you love Odyssey, cello music, and Minecraft, and you hate Emily, this the blog for you. Even if you don't like any of these things, you should click on the link and give it a looksee. http://www.cryinbryandern.blogspot.com/
In order to give the most detailed and full link page to ever exist in the Adventures in Odyssey online community, I will give all the defunct Adventures in Odyssey fan websites. Some fan sites were erased, but all defunct sites that are still on the Internet will be displayed below. Just because they are no longer operating doesn't mean they weren't good. Actually, these were some of the most loved sites. I believe you will enjoy them.
Odyssey Way (Original run: February 3, 2010-April 19, 2012) is a blog run by Original Joe. Over time, though, it became so much more than a blog. The site contains trivia, fan art, character biographies, reviews, and lots of other fun features including games and an Adventures in Odyssey infomercial. The link is http://odysseyway.blogspot.com/ .
The Odyssey Muchacha (Original run: May 18, 2010-July 2, 2010) was run by an Adventures in Odyssey fan who went by the pseudonym of "Camilla Parker". The blog was unique in the fact that it was "Spanglish". In the blog's post, Camilla would use lots of Spanish along with her English so the reader could have to figure out what she was writing. The link is http://odysseymuchacha.blogspot.com/ .
The Adventures in Odyssey Headquarters (Original run: Unknown-2006) was one of the most detailed Adventures in Odyssey sites, and still is. Though it hasn't been updated in six years, there are very many things on it to still peak your interests. The link is http://www.aiohq.com/aiohq.htm .
The Soda Fountain (Original run: January 26, 2000-October 15, 2008) is not a blog, it is a full-fledged website. Though the news hasn't been updated for almost four years, there are many things any Adventures in Odyssey fan can enjoy. Some of these features include episode listings, cast and crew listings, The Odyssey Scrapbook, and the Bruce Day Art Gallery. The link is http://www.aiosoda.com/index.php .
The Best Small Town Podcast (Original run:October 2, 2008-December 30, 2008) is one of the Adventures in Odyssey fan podcasts of days gone by. The podcast only had five episodes, but what made it unique was that each episode had a theme, much like B-TV. The link is http://bestsmalltownpodcast.blogspot.com/ .
The Heart of Adventures in Odyssey (Original run:April 29, 2010-August 10, 2010) was a unique blog run by an Adventures in Odyssey fan who went under the pseudonym "TC Man". The blog was meant to show TC Man's "heartbeat", or fanaticism, of Adventures in Odyssey. He has some interesting news articles, besides some Odyssey art, and a "Heartcast" that had eight episodes. The link is http://theheartofaio.blogspot.com/ .
Rusty Gordon's Blog (Original Run: June 6, 2008-July 15, 2008) was a blog by Rusty Gordon. The summary of the blog is "The inside scoop of the puny little town of Odyssey..... from the perspective of Rusty Gordon." In a sense, this blog started all the other blogs written by "characters" from Odyssey, but this by far is the most unique and funny. The link is http://www.rustygordonsblog.blogspot.com/ .
Bart Rathbone's Electric Palace Blog (Original Run: July 10, 2008-July 11, 2008) was supposed to be the official website of the Electric Palace. It was a really great setup, and the author of the blog did a very good job pretending to be Bart Rathbone, but, sadly, it didn't last. The link is http://electricpalace.blogspot.com/
Around the Corner in Odyssey (Original Run; September 29, 2010-April 22, 2011) was a blog run by Daniel T. Though the blog contained numerous spelling errors, it is one of my favorites. The blog consisted of journal pages written by our favorite Adventures in Odyssey characters, and a special page called "What Is Around the Corner in Odyssey?". The link is http://aroundthecornerinodyssey.blogspot.com/
The Agent's Blog (Original Run: May 24, 2010-November 17, 2011) was a blog written by "Agent 3XQ". He sounds a lot like Jared DeWhite in that he has such crazy and nonsensical conspiracy theories. However, his posts are very humorous. This blog is a must read. The link is http://agent-3xq.blogspot.com/?view=classic .
Mandy Straussberg's Life (Original Run: January 19, 2010-October 24, 2011) was one of a series of short-lived character blogs. This blog was the longest-running of all of them. This gives you a typical look at the town of Odyssey through the eyes of Mandy Straussberg, AFTER she left the radio drama. The link is http://mandystraussbergslife.blogspot.com/
The AIO Fan's Life (Original Run: December 31, 2009-October 30, 2013) was written by an Adventures in Odyssey fan named Marvin D. Though recently it has become more of a personal blog, there are still Adventures in Odyssey-related posts. The site also has character profiles, some fun features, and other interesting stuff. He has also done a few podcasts before. The link is http://theaiofanslife.jigsy.com/
