Episode 13 – Batman Begins 10th Anniversary / The Dark Knight Legacy
War Starts at Midnight

00:00 / 0

or: Bruce Wayne is just Going Through a “Batman Phase”

 Hunter and Chris are joined by guest Batman scholar and shameless fanboy Joseph “Joe Kerr” Dale  to mark the 10th Anniversary of Christopher Nolan’s Batman Begins. In a wide-ranging Special Features, the Dudes discuss The Dark Knight Legacy, covering Batman in cinema, as well as the realistic reboot culture ushered in by Nolan’s film. PLUS, the hubristic Hunter finally faces his fate for falsely prophesying Mad Max: Fury Road‘s box office performance. Cheers!

I’ve been listening to this nonstop for the past couple weeks, and cannot recommend it enough. No hyperbole, this is one of the best albums I’ve heard all year. Give it a spin! – Chris
