Weekly Feature 7/1/12

Yes! Finally! The big surprises are up! Check out my Adventures in Connellsville and Contests and Quizzes pages to learn more! For this feature, I interviewed Wooton Basset from The Unofficial AIO Blog and The Old Judge from Twists and Turns.

Alex Jefferson: When did you first start listening to AIO?

Wooton Basset: I started listening to AIO when I was around 4 years old. The first time I heard it was on the radio. My dad and I would listen to it every Saturday morning. I got my first Album a few years ago and ever since then I've been collecting them. I now have over 60 Odyssey items (albums, books, etc).

The Old Judge: December 26, 2009. My grandmother got me and my family Albums 1-4. I wasn't sure that I'd like them, but we listened to them the day after Christmas, and we got immediately hooked.

AJ: What is your favorite AIO episode?

WB: Well, I've had many favorite AIO episodes. Too many to count. But then a week ago I got Album 55 and I listened to the Labyrinth and it was just amazing. It is definitely my favorite. I can't stop listening to it.

TOJ: Oh, that's hard. I'd say The Inspiration Station, The Jubilee Singers, The Highest Stakes, Rescue From Manatugo Point and Operation: Digout, East Winds, Raining, and Something Significant, to name just a few.

AJ: You created the AIO newsletter that was shown of the Official Site. How did you get the idea to create a newsletter and how exactly did you send it to the site?

WB: One day I just got the idea for an AIO newsletter. It took me around 2 days to figure out what I should put in my newsletter. After I finished it I found Jesse Florea's email address in my sister's clubhouse jr. magazine and sent it to him. He emailed me back telling me that he had shown the newsletter to Nathan Hoobler, and Nathan said, “The e-newsletter is pretty fun. Maybe we should feature it on our blog. I don’t believe I’ve interacted with Noah before. You might ask if we can feature the newsletter on the blog.” So that’s how it got on The Official blog.

AJ: This may seem like an odd question, but I just have to ask: How did you find my blog? It appears that you were the first person to find it, and I'm not sure if it was even on Google.

TOJ: Through Wooton's Imagination Station page. He knows more Odyssey fan sites than I did, so I found your site on there. Needless to say, I fell in love with your site. You do an amazing job!!!

AJ: Why did you decide to start an AIO website?

WB: Our friends had a blog (not an AIO one) and it gave me the idea for a blog. I started out making a lego blog (http://epiclego.blogspot.com/
) and then made an AIO one. I made a few posts on my AIO one then became inactive. Just recently I got it going again.

TOJ: Well, I thought it would be nice to have a place to voice my opinions. Another main reason is that I was searching AIO fan sites one day and saw that so many fan sites had either stopped, or had slowed down almost completely on their posts. I thought that it would be nice to have a website that would actually be updated frequently that people could always go to read something new.

AJ: What are the best and worst things about having a website?

WB: I love pretty much everything about putting together a website. It's really fun. Probably the best thing is the fan feedback. They email me or comment on my blog saying that they love it. The worst thing is when there is nothing to post about on my blog.

TOJ: Well, the best thing about is you get to put your opinions in one place and see what other people think. The bad points are probably thinking of new things such as features.

Thank  you, The Old Judge and Wooton Basset for making time for the interview! Post a comment about the feature or the big surprise! And don’t forget to check out Adventures in Connellsville and Contests and Quizzes! Thanks for reading!


  1. Dude, I loved to hear from WB & TOJ, very cool idea. Also the AIC is one of the most original ideas for a feature on a AIO Site/blog. Can't wait to hear more!

    1. O yeah. I LOVE NICK!!!!!!!!!!!!!Also is Maxwell, Richard Maxwell?

  3. Um, no. But that doesn't mean Richard Maxwell won't be involved! (It also doesn't mean that he will be involved, not to spoil your dreams.)

  4. THAT WAS AWESOME! I love how you interview people like yourself or other fans! It's so cool!

  5. Thank you, Hannah J. I'm glad these interviews are getting such a positive response. I'm glad that I get to hear from other fans too. It's great to know a little more about WB and TOJ's websites. I loved their stories on how they started listening. Very interesting stuff.
