Well, we’ve got some news about Album 71! Please do not read this post unless you want to be spoiled.
The title of Album 71 has been revealed! This album will be called A Slippery Slope. Here is the official summary:
Adventures in Odyssey audio dramas release the imagination of both young and old as listeners follow a host of characters through adventures in the town of Odyssey. Geared towards kids ages 8 and up, these audio dramas teach biblical truths and moral foundations for children to make decisions from throughout their lives. Perfect for car rides and initiating important conversations with kids.
In A Slippery Slope, album #71 of the series, a girl loses her faith and walks through the process of seeing if she can ever find it again. Each of the six episodes conveys a strong moral theme:
1. “The Team”―Teamwork
2. “Please Adjust Your Frequency”―Pride
3. “Higher than Our Ways”―Grief
4. “Triple-Decker Sundae”―Faith
5. “Set a Watchman”―Friendship
6. “Worth It”―God’s Way
Recently winning the “Radio Program of the Year” from the National Religious Broadcasters Association, the team that creates these audio dramas continues to deliver content children love and adults can trust.Amazon
Unfortunately, there is no cover art available. It will be released on CD on October 5, 2021 and is available for preorder on Amazon!
We also know when this album will be released on the Adventures in Odyssey Club. In the comments section on of one of the posts in the Club, ModeratorHolly recently made the following statement:
Hi Club friends! We’ve been seeing a lot of questions in the moderation panel about future episodes and the release of Album 71.We don’t want to ruin too many surprises but we will say that…Album 71 will be released in the Club this coming summer. For all the other great suggestions, please know we’ve passed them on to our writers for consideration. May God bless your day today!ModeratorHolly
I assume that this Club moderator is a reliable source. I’ll soon be making a post about my theories for this album!
In other news, we’ve also got the release dates for Young Whit books 4 and 5 from the official site, whitsend… er, adventuresinodyssey.com, on the Young Whit page. Books 4 and 5 will be released in 2022.
It appears as though the release date for book 4 has been delayed. The Young Whit page used to have this picture of book 4:
As you can see, it says book 4 will be released in April 2021. But now the picture is gone and the page now simply says “Coming 2022”. That’s sad to hear. But Phil Lollar did mention last year in an episode of the AIOWiki Podcast that it has been delayed to 2022. I had thought he had made a mistake because at the time the above picture was on the official site. I guess I was mistaken about him being mistaken.
It is going to be a long wait. Hopefully, the next book in the Blackgaard Chronicles book series will be out before then. And of course, album 71: A Slippery Slope will be released by then, so we’ll have things to do until 2022.
Well, I’m certainly excited about album 71! I’ll be bringing in more news as it comes in!
