As many of you know, I have a special ‘bond’ with Batman, and it all began with Batman: The Animated Series! Now, as a psychologist, I often turn to comic book characters to explore relationships, elucidate patterns, and teach others about the fundamentals of psychological science. I feel that others must also have an ‘origin story’, right?!
To commemorate the Caped Crusader on #BatmanDay (September 17th), we discuss what Batman has meant to us over the years and share the various stories we have received about the impact Batman has made on the lives of our listeners!
In addition, as we have arrived at the end of the original B:TAS collection, we provide a “wrap-up” discussion of the progress, transformation and psychological growth demonstrated by the core characters of the show, including of course Batman and The Joker! Tune in for our in-depth thoughts!
The Arkham Sessions is a podcast [typically] dedicated to the psychology of the show, Batman: The Animated Series. Have psychology related questions about Batman? Write to us via twitter @ArkhamSessions or on Facebook.
