Greetings, all. It’s been a little while since we’ve posted. Things have been a bit busy lately and we haven’t had time to post as much as we want. Hopefully in the upcoming weeks we’ll be able to post a little more consistently. (And hopefully make some better featured images. Please forgive the above horribly edited image.)

So, you may have noticed a few updates to the site. First of all, Gianna Therese has joined the team here on the Odyssey Obsessors! Be sure to check out her introduction post, and be on the lookout for future posts by her. We’ve updated The Team page to include Gianna.

Also, if any of you readers out there have any AIO memes, artwork, fan fiction, headcanons, or if you want to write a guest post, please feel free to write to us on our contact page. We’ll get back to you as soon as possible and see if we can feature it here on the site.

Alright, now on to the latest Adventures in Odyssey news.

January’s Club Episode
On the latest Name That Episode, the following message appeared.

The message which was on the Club on October 7, 2021

So, this message says that Jacob Marley will appearing in January’s Club episode. Interesting. What episode is this? Well, we do know that there is an upcoming Club episode called “A Dickensian Dilemma“, which was recorded in November 2020. I can’t think of any other upcoming episode besides this one which would have Jacob Marley in it. Therefore, I believe that we can safely assume that “A Dickensian Dilemma” is going to be the Club exclusive episode for January 2022.

Album 72 News
Without any spoilers for Album 71; A Slippery Slope, we now know something else about the upcoming Album 72. Wilson Knox will be making an appearance. On the Web Quest section of “Sew on and Snow Forth”, in the place where the cut-and-fold Wilson is, it says, “In addition to this month’s Club adventure, he plays an important role in Albums 71 and 72.” So there you have it. Wilson Knox will play a big part in Album 72. Glad to know that he is appearing more in mainstream albums and not only in the Club.

Also, the Adventures in Odyssey Club has made the startling announcement that the first two episodes of Album 72 will be released early in the Adventures in Odyssey Club! I don’t want to get into details due to spoilers, but these episodes will be released on October 26 and October 27, 2021. I am very surprised about this.

Oh, and in this announcement, the date for when Album 72 will be releasing in the Adventures in Odyssey Club was revealed! The official debut of Album 72: The Long Road Home is December 16, 2021. I assume that Album 72 will be airing on the radio and online sometime next year.

Last Chance Detectives
Terror From Outer Space, book 5 of the re-released Last Chance Detectives book series has been released in full on the Adventures in Odyssey Club. Be sure to give it a read. Also, Austin Peachy, who runs the Odyssey Geek podcast revealed the title, summary, and cover of the next book in the series. Book 6 is called, Revenge of the Phantom Hot Rod. Don’t forget to pre-order it from Amazon!

Well, that’s all the news for now. There has been other AIO information revealed, but I haven’t had time to keep up with it all. I’ll catch up soon in upcoming posts.
