Together, we are The Odyssey ScoopCast.
And that's kind of a big deal.

Garrett Vandenberg
Former Editor, musician, and contributor to The Odyssey ScoopCast

A long, long time ago, in a land called "Canada", a young child was born by the name of Garrett Vandenberg. As he grew up, he was quickly given the nickname "the bulldozer" because of his lack of gentleness and tact. Of course, this tactlessness soon got him a job as a drummer at the age of 3, and went on to begin playing drums at the age of 10. At 14, he took up singing and guitar. Not long after, Garrett—touring the country in his worldwide fame—had pity on those less fortunate than himself and agreed to join a nagging fans' silly Odyssey podcast. Now, he continues to create music tracks for said podcast, as well as grace the show with his angelic voice. Soon, Garrett went on to share his incredible humility and soft heart with The Odyssey ScoopCast, both co-hosting and co-writing. Garrett resides in various parts of the country with his family and occasional friends who have been helpful enough to donate time to ministry (Notice, as this biography was written by Mr. Vandenberg himself, certain facts may have been slightly enhanced to improve public figure. But he does tour the country.)

Timmy Baze
Co-host of The Odyssey ScoopCast

Timmy Baze has been an Adventures in Odyssey nerd since he realized there was such a thing as Odyssey early in his childhood. When he isn't simultaneously listening to Odyssey and fact-checking on the AIO Wiki, which he's been part of since almost the beginning, he can usually be found hanging out with his wife, Sarah, and their cat Oreo, or studying to complete his MDiv at Andrews University. Before moving to Michigan for studies, Timmy served as a pastor in Bakersfield, California, which is closer to Los Angeles than the beautiful and historic San Francisco, and even farther from the sign for the women's room! (Did Eugene ever make it to Bakersfield??) While he goes by Harlow on the wiki and can do a convincingbut not quite high enough!Rodney Rathbone impersonation, his favorite character in Odyssey, and probably all of fiction, is most definitely Jack Allen.
