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 and DOOM PATROL.

Gotham's most dangerous villain is back--this time, with something to prove!  We deconstruct yet another episode of BATMAN: THE ANIMATED SERIES which features The Joker! This portrayal of the "psychotic clown" shows both his callous, destructive side as well as his jovial, charming nature. In this episode of The Arkham Sessions, we talk about the Joker's most likely mental health condition, discuss the personality trait known as "risk-taking," and question why clowns freak us the bat out!
