Adventures in Odyssey (also known as AIO or just Odyssey) is an Evangelical Christian-themed radio drama and comedy. It was started by Focus on the Family in 1987.

The series takes place in the fictional town of Odyssey. The show is most in an ice cream and discovery emporium called "Whit's End." The place is owned by John Avery Whittaker. The show's episodes have many things in them, such as comedic and melodramatic, but also have thematic and Biblical stories. Its characters often talk about Christianity, and sometimes Bible stories are taught.
