Ask Phil Lollar!

This is our BIG Surprise! We hinted at it with the monkey picture and someone got this close to guessing our surprise. And the surprise is...we're interviewing Phil Lollar on the Blogcast!!

That's right! The creator of our favorite radio drama, Adventures in Odyssey, is going to be answering your questions! Phil played Dale Jacobs on the show, along with many other small roles. He's directed over 300 episodes and written almost 200 shows.

Phil also teamed up with some of the Odyssey crew to create the hit Christian radio comedy, Jungle Jam, on which he played Millard the Monkey, Jean Claude the Flying Squirrel, among others.

And soon, Natasha & I will be interviewing him on our podcast and we need your help. We need as many questions to ask him as possible. So send us your questions by posting a comment on this post, fill out a form, or PM me on the Town of Odyssey. You can also post them on our disscussion board on Facebook. Make sure to send in more no more than 5 questions. The interview will consist of talk about AIO and Jungle Jam, but you're welcome to send in any question.

Hurry! You only have till February 20, 11:00 PM MST!

Time's up! Thank you for all the questions!

  1. 1. Is there any chance of you writing new AIO episodes? (you're my favorite writer)
    2. What show do you like working for better, Jungle Jam or AIO?

  2. Whoah, so I was right about Millard the Monkey? Cool!

    I heard that you went to the same church as Don and Genni Long when they were kids. Did you ever catch anything about the relationship they had off-mike before they got married?

    Are you a lot like Dale Jacobs?

    Did you enjoy doing the Twilife Zone episodes?

  3. What is the funniest moment that you have had in the production of Odyssey? How about Jungle Jam?

    Were you the first to be auditioned as Dale Jacobs?

    What is your favorite Odyssey episode?

    Who is your favorite Odyssey character and why?

    Which character are you most like?

  4. Do you think you'll ever do any more work for Odyssey or any other radio drama?

  5. Were you friends in real life with Erin and Sage Bolte who were your daughters on the show?

    Did you ever ad-lib any scenes that you did on the show or did you always stick to the script?

    Was Dale Jacobs your favorite character to play or did you prefer doing bit parts like the comical grocery store clerk from whom Lucy and Curt purchased orange juice in "Selpurcs"?

  6. Why did you bring back Blackgaard in "Blackgaard's Revenge"?

    If you could go back to re-write one of your AIO episodes, which one would you choose and why?

  7. My questions are a late entry, but if you've got time

    1.How do you write radio drama scripts to a standard time period?
    2.How long does it take to write the script, record the actors and typically produce an episode of Jungle Jam or AIO?
    3.Is there anything you do to pace your stories so they don't sound too rushed or too slow?
    4.Do you have any suggestions for making a consistent living with radio dramas?

  8. I have a couple serious questions and some fun ones too :P
    1! In your career who has influenced you the most and been an inspiration to you? (not including God)
    2! If Hollywood made a movie about your life, what would the climax be?
    3! If someone wrote a biography about you, what do you think the title should be?
    4! If I went back in time to when you were a teenager would I find posters on your wall??? what would be on them?
