“I am vengeance. I am the night. I am Batman.” 

Yassir Lester — comedian and writer/actor on Showtime’s Black Monday — joins Sandy to dissect the beautifully dark and twisted Saturday morning cartoon, Batman: The Animated Series. They discuss Arkham Asylum’s model of mental healthcare, Batman’s own mental health, and whether Batman and Robin count as a Thing.
