Who makes it?
For nearly 30 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.

Founded for the support of the family, Focus on the Family began a special radio drama series in 1987 called Family Portraits. The show was successful with its short-lived, 13-episode run. It was because of this mini-series that Adventures in Odyssey became what it is today. Centered around a grandfatherly inventor named John Avery Whittaker who owns an ice cream shop for children, Adventures in Odyssey has provided over 700 episodes of solid, Christian entertainment. Eugene Meltsner, Connie Kendall, Bernard Walton, Tom Riley, Jason Whittaker, and Jack Allen are only a few of the characters that bring Odyssey to life. The program is geared primarily for the 8-12 age bracket, however, people well into their thirties, forties, and later years have enjoyed the show for its quality entertainment and Christian morals.
