The Arkham Sessions, Episode 20 "Feat of Clay"

You know the story. You start with an attractive, successful actor who finds a "supplement" that helps his career. The "miracle pharmaceutical" happens to have a permanent, insidious side effect. And horrifically, our friend turns into the monstrous villain CLAYFACE and tries to destroy Batman! In this episode of The Arkham Sessions, we discuss the components of substance abuse disorders, vulnerability to addictions, and how traumatic experiences lead people to "self-medicate."
