Episode 28 – The Dark Knight Part 1 (1:09:40)

Batman! Adam West just died so Batman must unmask the show notes page. Batman!

The first half of the Batman film, the Dark Knight starring Christian Bale and Heath Ledger. Prompted by the recent death of Adam West who played the campy 60’s version of Batman, we take on this beast of a film.


Considered by many to be one of the greatest comic book film adaptations ever (which might be expected when Christopher Nolan is at the helm). We bring on a special guest Shaheen from Adelaide, Australia to go at it.

Here is the Google Info:

With the help of allies Lt. Jim Gordon (Gary Oldman) and DA Harvey Dent (Aaron Eckhart), Batman (Christian Bale) has been able to keep a tight lid on crime in Gotham City. But when a vile young criminal calling himself the Joker (Heath Ledger) suddenly throws the town into chaos, the caped Crusader begins to tread a fine line between heroism and vigilantism.

His paper published in the Journal of Human Resources in 2013.

It’s obviously going to be a lot of technical economics and math but anyone even the layperson can read the abstract and conclusion.
