“There are no bad episodes of Odyssey.” The singular exception to that rule is up for debate as Ryan and I delve into “The Team.” Split between dozens of plot inconsistencies and Ryan’s holding out hope on the word “commit,” we attempt to justify our criticism of one of the most controversial episodes in the history of the show.
It’s been exactly 600 days since the first review in the post-Blackgaard saga on AIO Audio News. Now, at long last, Ryan Matlock is here with me to review the final episode in the arc, “The Decision.” And just like the very first one… I’m sick again.

Why is Eugene waging a battle with geese? Find out on the latest edition of AIO Revinews, as Ryan and I discuss the impeccable “Solitary Refinement.” In this very focused podcast, we talk about Bernard’s criticism of Eugene, the connection of Whit’s storyline with Eugene’s, monk stereotyping done well, and Katrina’s maturity filtered through Eugene’s subconsciousness. And a few games of goose solitaire here and there.
How could the return of John Whittaker become even more impactful than it has been so far? The answer is “Clara.” On this review on AIO Audio News of the next post-Blackgaard episode, Ryan and I delve into this masterpiece of a story, and along with a lengthy discussion on modern-day AIO character development, we break down one of Phil Lollar’s best emotional scripts and one of Paul Herlinger’s best performances. And while it still takes 100 minutes to slog through, the third installment in the return of the Revi-niews should be worth the wait.
Whit returns to Odyssey and Ryan and I are here to talk about everything that is remotely connected to the episode “Home, Sweet Home” in this review on AIO Audio News. We’re back to covering the post-Blackgaard arc, which means we have a lot of story to catch up on, a lot of character development to cover, a lot of tangents to take, and a lot of jokes to make… but no red meat.
Buckle up. We’ve reached the Train Room scene in the review series of The Ties That Bind, and the thesis of the album has been laid bare. Ryan and I are here to go to the mat on picking apart every piece of this episode and album, and we hold nothing back in our candid but tasteful discussion of the issues at hand. Be forewarned that no stone is left unturned, and some listeners may be put off by my viewpoints. It’s a long but important discussion as we unpack just why The Ties That Bind is one of the most controversial series in Adventures in Odyssey.
