Finally, DC has brought the audio storytelling back to fruition with our favorite Caped Crusader as our star. Audio storytelling is not new but how we get them is and now podcasts make up a large chunk of our consumed content. DC’s new series, Batman: The Audio Aventures brings back the yesteryear Noir style of storytelling. Moreover, the storytelling format is exciting as the listener must imagine the details in their mind to allow the story to come to life.
In preparation for DC’s Fandome Global Event on October 16th, they hosted the first episode on their main site at 35 minutes long. This is to intrigue fans to visit their partner Spotify for the continuation of the story. The first two episodes are up now with only one listed on their main site.
As we begin, the setting is Gotham City. After years of vigilante crimefighting, Batman prepares to become an official Gotham employee. Next, Catwoman is still up to her old tricks of thieving. Additionally, Two-face struggles while his two persona halves fight for control as Penguin awaits to take advantage. Last, The Riddler is desperate to be taken seriously. As always,The Joker plots away. This time, it is for Valentine’s Day (HBO Max and Spotify).
Chris Parnell will serve as the DJ and narrator as Dr. Decibel, doing his best to immerse the listeners in this tale. Other actors mentioned that are included are listed below.
