It's All in How You Frame It

The medium of radio allows Adventures in Odyssey to experiment with a number of framing devices. Here are some of the framing devices Odyssey has utilized.

  • Diary/Journal Entry - An Odyssey character journals about a story. The text of the diary/journal entry serves as narration.

  • Show-within-a-show - The events of a show (e.g. another radio show, a TV show, a play) within the Odyssey universe forms the core of the episode.

    • 035: V.B.S. Blues - The sketch-within-a-show variation. The sketch is of a Bible story.
  • Telling a Story - An Odyssey character tells a story. It may be about other Odyssey characters, biblical figures, or other fictional (or meta-fictional, if you want) characters. The story is dramatized and forms the core of the episode.

  • Unreliable Narrator - An Odyssey character tells a story, but unlike the telling a story framing device above, the events being narrated get twisted, mangled, and augmented—even fantastical elements can be introduced. This can be because the narrator is being intentionally dishonest, but she may also have truly forgotten or have a head injury. The point of this device isn’t to reveal something about the events being narrated but to reveal something about the narrator herself.

  • Wizard of Oz - An Odyssey character is unconscious or knocked out and seemingly transported to another place and/or time. People they meet there/then often resemble an Odyssey character they know but who is not that character.

  • Writing a Letter - An Odyssey character recounts a story in a letter. The content of the letter serves as narration.
