Comics Alliance Presents The Arkham Sessions, A Podcast Dedicated To The Psychology Of ‘Batman: The Animated Series’
The Arkham Sessions, hosted by clinical psychologist 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.
As a special exclusive for ComicsAlliance visitors, new episodes of The Arkham Sessions will stream on CA several days in advance of their syndication to iTunes.
This week: One of the toughest, scariest and scaliest villains in Gotham City is on the loose, and the Dark Knight is on his tail! In this episode of The Arkham Sessions, the Psych Doc wrestles Killer Croc in “Vendetta!”
“I’m adaptable. When you grow up looking like I do, you gotta learn to go with the flow.” – Killer Croc, Batman: The Animated Series.
Hidden behind the vicious exterior of sharp teeth and menacing claws is a troubled man who has dealt with disfigurement from a medical condition his whole life. How did this physical deformity impact him psychologically? How realistic is his uncontrollable anger and thirst for revenge? Hosts Brian Ward and geeky psychologist Dr. Andrea Letamendi explain how biological, cognitive, emotional and social “pathways” interact to explain how Croc’s life choices are actually understandable. Is their analysis justifiable or too sympathetic? Listen and weigh in!
