If you're a fan of Adventures in Odyssey then you're obviously familiar with the concept of audio drama. AIO is a show you can listen to on CD, cassette, digital download, online, on the AIO Club, and it's still going strong on the radio after it originally debuted there over thirty years ago. Today there are plenty of different audio dramas to listen to, but that wasn't the case when AIO first began in 1987. So why did the creators of the show decide to make an audio drama of all things? This new editorial, titled On Solid Sound, looks at that very question. We hope you enjoy. You can find more opinion pieces to read on our editorials page.
With Adventures in Odyssey getting ready to celebrate its 30th anniversary, we thought it would be wholly appropriate to post an editorial celebrating a character who's been with us from the very beginning, Connie Kendall. The editorials page is a section on the AIO Update where we post opinion pieces about everyone's favorite audio drama, Adventures in Odyssey. This latest editorial is entitled My Girl Connie and explores Connie's longtime role on the show. We hope you enjoy! After you've read it, join in the candid conversation by writing your own Connie-related comment below.

The editorial is entitled A Classic Act and it lists nine ideas from the past that could be integrated into modern AIO.

Lately the AIO Update has been adding some new features, such as the Catch Up on Adventures in Odyssey section and a page for Free Downloads. But that of course doesn't mean other features such as news, episode reviews and editorials are going to slow down. A new episode review was just posted last Monday, and today it's time to unveil the website's 25th editorial. This latest opinion piece is entitled An Odyssey Conundrum and it discusses a few unanswered questions about AIO that have arisen as a result of some of the behind-the-scenes information provided to fans in the Official Guide. It lists four main areas of interest, but this is by no means a complete list and please feel free to come up with your own and write them down below in the comments section. After you've read this editorial you can also give it a rating out of ten and you can even send in your ideas for future opinion pieces via the AIO Update's contact page.
Besides posting news and episode reviews, the AIO Update also posts opinion pieces in the form of articles called Editorials. It was about time to release a new editorial, so today the wait is now over. This latest piece is entitled Meanwhile, in Another Part of Marus and as you might expect deals with the Passages series by Paul McCusker. I give some background on the series' creation, talk about its integration with Adventures in Odyssey, and then give my thoughts on the future of Passages audio adaptations. It was two years ago this month that I last wrote an editorial on Passages, so it seems fitting to return to the topic now. After you've read it, please leave feedback by rating the piece out of 10. You can also write a comment at the bottom of this post. Thanks for visiting the AIO Update and please enjoy this new editorial.
In Adventures in Odyssey's very first album, The Adventure Begins, the show began and the three major characters of Whit, Connie and Tom were introduced.

In this new editorial from AIO Update called The Adventure Continues, we come up with twenty ideas for future Odyssey albums. Each has a title and deals with a particular set of themes or storylines.

Besides posting Adventures in Odyssey news updates, poll questions, and episode reviews, the AIO Update also creates editorials. These are articles that deal with all kinds of issues about the past, present and future of the show. Our latest editorial is about Bible stories on AIO and is called Into Revelation. In this instance the word revelation refers to the scriptures, which is God's revelation to us. The Bible reveals God's character and his design for humanity. This editorial discusses a few stories from the Bible that have not been told on Odyssey before, but that I think deserve to be made into episodes.
