Blog review: The Adventures in Odyssey Blog

In this article, we'll be discussing the AIO Blog ( Started in 2008 by Austin Peachey, this blog is one of the oldest AIO fan sites that is still updated. It began as simply another source for AIO news, comparable to what the AIO Update is now, and what the Odyssey Scoop and AIOwiki were back then. As it grew, however, it became a unique source for cool resources like contests and wallpapers.
In late 2009, Austin started the AIO Blogcast with his sister Natasha. Over 3 years and throughout 45 episodes, they interviewed Bob Smithouser and Jesse Florea, Phil Lollar, Andre Stojka, Aria Curzon, Zach Callison, and Dave Arnold. They also interviewed several fans, including Devon and Victoria Francis from the AIO Oddcast, Brendan McFarland from The Whit's End Podcast, OdysseyFan (owner of the world's biggest AIO collection), the Taylors from Blimey Cow, Josh and Ally Ko from Out Of Control in Odyssey, and Ryan Matlock from The Whit's End Podcast and The Odyssey Scoopcast. In addition to interviews, the Blogcast also featured original audio dramas and sketches, episode reviews, and original songs. The Blogcast ended, after 45 episodes, on March 29, 2013.
While the AIO blog is not the first and most up-to-date place to find AIO news, they still post around 3 times per month, and they're still a great source for contests, wallpapers, and news about other audio dramas. The AIO blog is definitely a site to keep tabs on; you never know what you'll discover along the way!

Well, that's about all I have to say about that. Again, you can find the AIO blog at
