Merry Christmas! As the year draws to a close, we listen to the very first radio drama ever produced by Focus on the Family. "Spare Tire" released on the daily Focus on the Family broadcast on December 17, 1983 and it paved the way for "Family Portraits" and - ultimately - Adventures in Odyssey. Hear this drama, plus an interview with Odyssey co-creator Steve Harris.
He loves me, he loves me not? Love—even life itself—is on the line as Connie drives all the way to Washington, D.C., to mend fences with Mitch. But his cool reception matches the frigid waters that nearly cost Connie her life during a stopover in West Virginia. A sudden job opportunity abroad creates yet another crisis for their relationship. Meanwhile, Odyssey's master of mispronunciation, Bart Rathbone, decides to sponsor—what else?—a Shakespeare festival. But he ends up with more theatrics behind stage than on it. Throughout these and other conflict-solving stories, kids 8 and up will learn that running away from a problem only makes matters worse.
