The Official Adventures in Odyssey Podcast

I just finished listening to the podcast. Lots of behind-the-scenes information and hints about upcoming episodes are discussed by Dave Arnold, Phil Lollar, Marshal Younger, Kathy Buchanan and Nathan Hoobler. Seriously, TONS of things were said. I’m not kidding when I quote Jay Smouse in “The Malted Milkball Falcon” and say, “My head just exploded.” I might make a post to discuss all the information revealed in this podcast episode.

I do want to say that the Club release date for Album 71 had already been announced. On June 14, in the Adventures in Odyssey Club, in comments section of the post called “The Stakes Keep Rising” (which was just a repost of the preview for book 5 of the Blackgaard Chronicles. I don’t know what that was for), someone asked, “I know the new album is coming out in July…but what is the actual date?” A moderator responded with the following statement:

Episodes will release on Tuesdays, beginning July 13!


Now, I wasn’t sure if this Club moderator is a reliable source, but as it turned out, they were correct. Last year, Album 69: Best Kept Secrets began releasing on July 14, 2020, so this seems consistent. I was going to post about this comment, but I never got around to it.

Well, there you have it, the Adventures in Odyssey Club release date for Album 71! July 13, 2021. That’s only 24 days away. Mark your calendars! And a shout-out to Gianna who predicted that the album will be released on July 13.

I’ll be posting again as soon as I can. At some point I will also post my predictions for album 71. Keep an eye out!
