First off, major spoiler warning!

I’m very serious. I’m even writing this warning in large font, so it must be important. But seriously, I beg you, do NOT read this post if you have not listened to Album 71, because it will be spoiled for you. I repeat, this post contains MAJOR Album 71 spoilers. And Album 72 spoilers, so if you don’t want to know the summary and title of alum 72, don’t read this post.

Okay, you’ve been warned.

The title and summary for Album 72 has been revealed!

Album 72 is titled, “The Long Road Home”.

And here’s the summary! (And if you are still reading this, then this is your last chance to STOP. Unless, of course, you want to be majorly spoiled about Album 71 (and 72).)

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 high-quality audio dramas teach biblical truths and moral foundations for children to make decisions from throughout their lives. They are perfect for car rides and initiating important conversations with kids.

In The Long Road Home, album #72 of the series, important lessons are learned about friendship, family, and judging others.

“Have you ever considered that Mr. John Avery Whittaker has his own agenda?” Olivia has a new friend in her life. He’s smart, interesting, and just so talkative. Will his influence, and Olivia’s own desire to settle some scores, ruin her friendships with Zoe and the gang at Whit’s End? Will his devious comments convince Olivia to abandon her faith?

Meanwhile, Buck and Jules discover that Buck’s father left behind a lot more than could ever have been suspected. Could the map help him determine what is next for his life? Because he’s beginning to wonder if he really wants to be in a family with Eugene and Katrina. Elsewhere in Odyssey, Bridgett Perkins learns a good lesson about judging others when she feels that her own life is under the microscope.


This album will be released on March 8, 2022. Be sure to pre-order it from Amazon!

This summary confirms that the recently recorded episode “Judge Me Tender” will be in this album. We also know that the Buck and Jules episode will be a 3-part episode, as it was confirmed in the Official Adventures in Odyssey Podcast. I assume that “The Lost One”, an Album 72 episode title which was confirmed in the bonus feature of Album 71: A Slippery Slope, will be the episode about Olivia and will conclude the story of her doubting her faith. I wonder who this “new friend” is?

And we also know the time when this album will release in the Adventures in Odyssey Club. I mentioned in a previous post, A Club moderator said that the next album, “…will be released in the Club beginning in mid-December.” I’m going to guess December 14, 2021, but that’s just a guess.

I am very excited for this album! Now we need to wait for the cover art to be revealed.

What are your thoughts? Any theories about this album? Be sure to leave a comment!
