​Mind Control Comes to The AIO Club

The cover of the Novacom collection.

Our friends at Focus on the Family have added The Novacom Saga collection to The Adventures in Odyssey Club.

When Novacom Broadcasting moves into the town of Odyssey, the media company gives every impression of being family friendly – until unexplained events begin to happen. Whit finds hidden cameras in his office…Eugene disappears…and blueprints for the Imagination Station are stolen. Could Whit’s invention be used for evil instead of good?

Meanwhile, Connie begins dating a young manwho works for Novacom. But can she trust a guy who seems to be keeping secrets from her? Soon Whit’s son Jason realizes that the strange things he’s noticed overseas may actually be pieces to this complex puzzle. With lessons on truth, trusting God, and spiritual warfare, the thrill-a-minute Novacom Saga presents this complete epic miniseries (plus bonus features) in one action packed set.

There has never been a better time to be a member of the AIO Club. With this collection added on the heels of The Ultimate Road Trip, could we possibly see the addition of The Blackgaard Chronicles in the future?

With great additions such as the Novacom collection, the AIO Club is a real deal at only $9.99 a month.

However, if you want to get a sample of what life is like as a member of the AIO Club, Focus is currently offering a 14 day free trial. You can find out more by visiting the website.

The Official Podcast shares memories of Janet Waldo and Alan Young

Alan Young and Janet Waldo

This spring, we were faced with the passing of Janet Waldo and Alan Young, the actors behind Joanne and Jack Allen. Earlier this week, The Official Adventures in Odyssey Podcast released a special episode to honour their memory and reflect on their time with the show. I knew that I’d cry while listening to it, but I also found myself laughing along as members of the Odyssey team shared their memories of Janet and Alan.

It’s a touching tribute to these two people who brought to life characters that we’ve all grown fond of over the years. They will be dearly missed.

You can listen to the episode on the Official Blog.

“Kurt Bruner and Al Janssen both worked with Adventures in Odyssey in the late 1990s and early 2000s. Now, they work with Open Doors, this month’s featured ministry in the Odyssey Adventure Club. Kurt and Al told us about working at Whit’s End, whether “Sunset Bowlawater” fits in Adventures in Odyssey, and a soon-to-be-fan-favorite bailiff character. Plus, they tell us what Open Doors is doing around the world and how the Club episode “When One Door Closes” fits into that mission.”
