Like many who grew up in the '60s and '70s (and perhaps even '80s and later), Tim and Paul had the course of their lives changed by the 1966 Batman TV show, from the types of play they did growing up to their present-day interests.

In this series, they discuss the show's allure and its failures, the arc of the show from satire to sitcom, its influences (the '40s serials and the comic books themselves) and the things it, in turn, influenced.

Bat-hubcapWhat's your Bat-dream job? For Mark Racop it's making replica Batmobiles -- which has been his sole source of income at Fiberglass Freaks in Logansport, Indiana, since 2003. This episode we talk with Mark about the car's history, what it was really capable of doing vs. what was just special effects, how he got into the game and became the sole authorized maker of replica Batmobiles, and why the black, bubble-windshielded beauty still means so much to so many.
