About the Team

For over 20 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.

Nathan Hoobler, a staff writer since 2002, compiled and wrote The Official Guide, conducting over 100 interviews with past team members, the show's award-winning actors, and many other Adventures in Odyssey contributors.
