Our History
It has been a privilege to bring the Odyssey Scoop to life since its beginnings on December 22, 2000. The site went through various designs and formats, all which led up to the current design. For a more detailed look at The Odyssey Scoop's beginnings and logo progression, see below.

Time and time again, we have noticed that site visitors tend to mistake this website for the official Adventures in Odyssey website, Whit's End, or even think it is the Clubhouse Magazine monthly update. But it's not. The Odyssey Scoop was started by an AIO fan just like you. Since it began on December 22, 2000, the Scoop has grown and expanded - in more ways than one. The site contains information all about a famous radio drama called Adventures in Odyssey.

Many people have been blessed by this site for years. With people visiting from all around the world, we are privileged to be the largest Adventures in Odyssey fan site on the internet. Click here to see what others are saying about The Odyssey Scoop.
 

The Odyssey Scoop
The Evolution of a Logo

Since the beginning in 2000, The Odyssey Scoop has been given several different flavors. Take a look at the progression of The Odyssey Scoop logo timeline:

2000-2001
 
2001-2002
 
2002
2002-2010 2006-2010 2010-?


2000-2001
The site experienced its birth pangs from 2000 to 2001. Founded on December 22, 2000, The Odyssey Scoop was originally a slightly disorganized mess of new information. The site was hosted on a free web hosting service.

During the process of creating a logo I had to think of a name. I finally came up with "The Odyssey Scoop" as the title, thinking it was original as can be, only to find out months later that it was already being used by Focus on the Family's Clubhouse magazine. I decided to keep the name the same regardless and the name has stuck ever since.

2001-2002
On November 10, 2001, The Odyssey Scoop redesign was published with a black background. The organization of the site's features began to take shape. View a sample of the original black design here, but feel free to cringe right along with us!

2002
Before releasing the site with a white background, a preliminary logo was created, though never used.

2006-2010
Our newsletter went out with a logo slightly different from the 2002-2010 logo, with an addition of Lucy Cunningham-Schultz.

2002-2010
On June 19, 2002, the Scoop's redesigned was published with a white background and design that would be used until 2010. The structure of the site was ironed out and more consistent. During these years, the design was tweaked several times for necessary improvements, but the overall layout was kept intact. View a sample of the original white design here.

2010
With a need for consistency, an updated look, and improved organization, The Odyssey Scoop re-launched on February 13, 2010 with the design you see now. The 2002-2010 logo was still used but was changed a month later (March 16, 2010) to the 2010 logo, the logo you see now. In 2010, Adventures in Odyssey had entered a new era with an introduction of new characters, storylines, and updated character illustrations, and we wanted to match a whole new era of shows.
