The Arkham Sessions: The Psychology of Animated Series (Sun 3:00-4:00pm) Room 207.  Using Batman: The Animated Series to help educate audiences about real-world psychology and mental health, the hit podcast The Arkham Sessions has created a unique niche where science meets art. But Batman isn’t the only animated series that can help us learn about ourselves and those around us. Join co-hosts Dr. Andrea Letamendi and Brian Ward as they dive into the importance of shows that are often mistakenly seen as “just for kids.” Special guests include writers Eric and Julia Lewald (X-Men: The Animated Series), Henry Gilroy (Star Wars Rebels), and David Wise (Batman: The Animated Series).
