The Arkham Sessions, hosted by Dr. Andrea Letamendi and Brian Ward, is a weekly podcast dedicated to the psychological analysis of Batman: The Animated Series. Nostalgic, humorous, and even a little educational, each episode promises to lend some insight into the heroes, villains, and classic stories of the Dark Knight!
The Arkham Sessions, Ep. 127 – “BTAS Wrap-Up”
Holy podcast, Batman, it’s the bat-ter end! This special episode marks an important milestone on our show: the completion of our coverage of the Batman: Animated Series collection! Over the course of five years, we have examined over 100 Batman episodes, analyzed over 29 villains, and took the show on the road to perform live recordings of at least five panels at comic conventions. In this celebratory wrap-up episode, we discuss the most significant character arcs stemming from the show’s storylines to review mental health progress, development, and even deterioration over the course of the series. We also mention notable recurring themes that emerged from our show, including our favorite moments of Batman, Catwoman, Mr. Freeze, Two-Face, the Robins, and more. Finally, we answer questions from listeners about Batman’s self-care and coping. Centering our show around the psychology of Batman has been an amazing experience for us! Thank you for being a part of our journey! We can’t wait to soar toward the next chapter with you!
