THE ARKHAM SESSIONS, by Dr. Andrea Letamendi and Brian Ward, is a weekly podcast dedicated to the observation and clinical analysis of the characters in BATMAN: THE ANIMATED SERIES.

Imagine that Fagin from Oliver Twist and Captain Hook from Peter Pan had a love child. Now give him an eyepatch and pet killer crocs. You've got the Sewer King, a cruel man who kidnaps young runaways in Gotham City and forces them to work for him in cavernous sewers under the city. We learn that nothing angers Batman more than child maltreatment in this episode of The Arkham Sessions, a podcast dedicated to the psychological analysis of BATMAN: THE ANIMATED SERIES.

It's finally time to talk about the ladies of Gotham! Or at least one lady: Poison Ivy. Maybe we've fallen under her tantalizing spell, but we're pretty sympathetic of her murderous actions in this episode of The Arkham Sessions, a podcast dedicated to the psychological deconstruction of the classic show, BATMAN: THE ANIMATED SERIES. I'm also convinced that Batman's greatest threat is a giant killer vagina. Trust me on this one.

What are phobias? How are they treated? And what is Batman really afraid of? (OK, that one is fairly obvious, we admit). The Arkham Sessions explores the theme of fear and anxiety through the mischief of another classic Gotham City villain, The Scarecrow, from BATMAN: THE ANIMATED SERIES.
