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.

PLUS, the hubristic Hunter finally faces his fate for falsely prophesying Mad Max: Fury Road‘s box office performance. Cheers!
