ODYSSEY OWL (interview with Jay Smouse)

Merry Christmas everyone! Welcome to the Odyssey Owl! Sorry I am posting late. I got busy.

Today I am interviewing JaySmouse from Adventures in Opinions.

Here’s question one:
When was the first time you started listening to AIO?

I started listening to AIO when I was about 5 or 6 years old. I borrowed an AIO VHS from the church library and it had a bonus feature on it, which was the episode The Mortal Coil, if I remember correctly.

Oh, that’s cool! What made you want to have a blog?

I was inspired by past blogs like Welcome to Odyssey and by AIO Audio News . I wanted to have a place where I could share my own opinions, so I started Adventures in Opinions.

Have you ever had a crush on a character or actor from AIO?


Well that was short, but to the point.

What’s your favorite episode(s)?

My favourite episode is The Time Has Come from Album 25: Darkness Before Dawn

That’s a great episode.

If you could change something from AIO what would you change? And what do you want for the future of Odyssey?

I would probably change the last few episodes of the Rydell saga. For the future of Odyssey it would be nice if they would introduce a small side character acted by me! I’ve always wanted to be in an episode.

Ah, funny you would say that because my next question was:
If you could make a character, how would it be?

Hmm…I think it would be interesting to have a child of Dr. Blackgaard or a sibling of him and Edwin.

That would be awesome! What villain would you like to see come back?

Regis Blackgaard.

Here’s the last question, What do you want to see more from Odyssey?

I think that what I would like to see more from AIO would be more episodes. We’re approaching the 100th Club episode, and I think that would be a good place to stop doing club-exclusive episodes. Then they could instead release more mainstream episodes which can actually affect characters. As I joked about in my initial review of (and reaction to) Make Snow Mistake, we knew that nothing bad could actually happen to Jules simply because it was a Club episode. (you can listen to my reaction and review of Make Snow Mistake here: https://adventuresinopinions.com/2021/12/13/make-snow-mistake-reaction)

Any last words for my readers?

Have a great Christmas, and remember: the best is yet to come! (also, I’m doing daily posts for Advent on Adventures in Opinions so if you want more Odyssey-related content, go there shameless plug)
