Christopher Nolan's game-changing Batman film, 2008's The Dark Knight, may very well be the only reason this podcast exists. Allen and Steven give a detailed account of their hype for the film, go in-depth with the viral marketing as they experienced it, and all around how the Bat-tastic summer of 2008 cemented a friendship of nearly a decade. Gerald gives his recollections of the time, in stark contrast to the experience of Allen and Steven, though he loved the film just the same. The Bat may never reach these heights again, and we'll never be 18 again, so the hype may never be so real again.
