The Arkham Sessions Podcast, Episode #111: “Critters”

Much like cult monster movies from the 80’s and 90’s, this self-aware episode about killer mutated creatures is both adventurous and absurd. We get introduced to the villain “Farmer Brown” and his steroid-addicted daughter. Batman has to defend Gotham City from Farmer Brown’s “genetically enhanced” animals. We briefly cover the dangers and addictive properties of steroid use in humans, though observe a mostly insubstantial storyline this time! Of note is our recollection of a scene from last week’s episode, “Mean Seasons.” We take a deeper look at an encounter between an industry manager and a young female starlet, and have a difficult dialogue about sexual harassment and assault in Hollywood.
