Batman is the world's greatest scientist and we can prove it. School of Batman is a podcast where academics help Batman fight crime utilising their research. In this show, it starts with a tour of some of the science of Batman on film, from the camp crusader of Adam West to the gritty realism of the Batfleck. You'll then get involved by providing scenarios to our hosts Chris George (Figshare) and fibre optic superhero Matthew Partridge (Southampton University).
