In today’s 24/7 angry emoji-snap-tweeter-facebuns-crying emoji society, there’s a lot of emphasis on what’s popular.

We crave the most likes, the most retweets, even the most crying emojis for some reason. And when something does become popular, we want to be part of it. Why?

For Fear Of Missing Out (FFOMO).

Perhaps there will be a time when we focus more on mindfulness and gratitude, rather than what is popular or “Number 1”.

But that time is not now… because Batmanland is the #1 TV & Movies podcast on iTunes Australia!

WE’RE NUMBER 1! WE’RE NUMBER 1!

BATMANLAND! BATMANLAND!

 

That’s right, the weekly podcast that takes you behind the cowl to uncover the mysteries of the 60s Batman TV show has climbed to the top of the charts, proving that popularity contests are wonderful, especially when you win them.

Why should you, the discerning podcast listener, want to experience Batmanland?

Well, not only do we explore the unlimited nuances of Adam West’s performance, but we also discuss the wider cultural impact of Batman – in movies, TV, radio, comics, books, theatre, phonograph cylinder, daguerreotype, stereopticon, Kinetoscope, orchestrion, lithograph and, of course, mezzotint.

That’s how deep we get on this show. 

Your next step is to subscribe to the podcast on iTunes or wherever you get your podcasts.

Episodes are released right after double episodes of Batman broadcast on Fridays at 6:30pm on SBS VICELAND. Catch up is available on SBS On Demand.
