Minute 63: Petrified Paramour (with Claire York)

Art and death collide in a beautiful symbiosis... at least in Joker's mind! Art is homicide and homicide is art. Alicia emerges once more! But something is different... her face... Sketchy Jack's horrors are unleashed! Claire York is back as Special Guest Investigator to finish the week. Can she help the Bat Boys dig their way through Jack's demented mind to uncover the secrets buried within? Tune in to find out! The next episode follows on Monday. Same Bat Pod, different Bat...

Minute 62: The String of Fire (with Claire York)

Joker delivers the ultimate in backhanded compliments in his bizarre attempt to woo Vicki to his cause (and his bed!). Will his romantic boombox accompaniment, coupled with ROARING FLAMES, yield success? I couldn't say no, that's for sure! Sadly, Vicki's portfolio is doing very little to inspire Saucy Jack... though he IS rather taken by some horrifying skulls of war. Joining the our dynamic duo on this date investigation is Claire York - punk rockin', archaeology-lovin', Mother of Rats...

Minute 61: Cut a Rug, Not The Painting (with Leigh Lahav)

A red right hand! A red left! ALL MANNER OF COLOURS, EVERYWHERE! Joker and his goons are doing a number on old-fashioned art and transforming it into the new. One dollar bills? Get outta here! Afterwards, The Clown Prince finally makes his move on Vicki - his catch is secured. How can Ms Vale escape this funky nightmare? Stay tuned, Bat Fans! Joining our Partymen is a very special guest investigator - animator, writer and YouTube star Leigh Lahav (aka OnlyLeigh)! Pop culture AND art?...

Minute 60: Partyman Pandemonium (with Heidi Bennett)

The people are dead. Or unconscious... I dunno, we're not too sure. Whatever. More importantly, THE PARTYMAN IS IN THE HOUSE, PEOPLE! He's here to help us broaden our minds and, oh boy, are we in for a shock today! This guy is the funkiest man I've ever seen! What will Vicki make of this? What will become of her? Stay tuned to find out, Bat Minute Mites! Rounding out the week is Special Guest Investigator Heidi Bennett! You will know Heidi from her great work over at Spinal Tap Minute and...

Minute 59: Villainous Vapours (with Heidi Bennett)

Vicki waiting... waiting... waiting. She did that 'do for nothing! A mysterious delivery is brought to her, however, to add a little colour to her day. But, wait... TOXIC GAS! EVERYWHERE! Mayhem will ensue and people will fall. PANIC AT THE FLUGELHEIM! Returning to investigate the madness is Heidi Bennett of the excellent Spinal Tap Minute and Cabin Minute Cast shows! With Heidi on board this just got turned up to 11, folks! The next episode follows on Friday! Same Bat Pod, different...

Minute 58: Masked Moll (with Heidi Bennett)

Bat Minute is in the house and Daddy’s going to make some art, darling! A porcelain mask masks Joker's first steps into his new world of art. Will his trip to the Flugelheim provide the inspiration he's seeking for further genius? I think a certain blonde will do him just fine... especially as she's been cruelly stood up by her date tonight! Or has she? Helping investigate this week is none other than Heidi Bennett! Heidi is the host of her own fantastic audio delights in Spinal Tap...

Minute 57: Dent's Dueling Decor (with Scott Carelli)

The Borg suggest(s) holding people at gunpoint while Dent talks with his mouth full. Meanwhile, Alfred is revealed as a snooper himself! He's going through Bruce's messages! In other developments, Joker dolls himself up for a night on the town. Dueling with the truth and obscurity is today's special guest investigator, Scott Carelli! Scott has almost cracked this case so you can't keep him away! You know him for sure - Scott is the host of multiple podcasts including Back to the Future...

Duration: 00:51:38

Minute 56: Action News Acne Antics (with Scott Carelli)

Bruce the snoop is going through Napier's files. He's putting this all together... finally. We learn of prior Jack's affinity for chemicals, though perhaps not in the way you'd imagine. Filthy, disgusting, news readers reveal the full extent of Joker's crimes as many are now deceased and the products responsible are being tracked down. Our investigation comes on leaps and bounds thanks to the help of Scott Carelli! Scott is a writer, director and the owner of Dueling Genre who produce...

Minute 55: Audacious Advertising (with Scott Carelli)

LOVE THAT BAT MINUTE '89! The boys are back for more sleuthing as Joker hijacks the news studio's transmissions! Want to look exactly like the former Mr Napier in every single way? Well, boy, does he have the product for you! We wouldn't advise it on the beach, however, despite the commercial. While Joker tries to prove that sex sells by artfully raising the models from the dead, Bruce has made an important discovery... Joining the crew as special guest investigator (SGI?) this week is...

Minute 54: Corpsing on Air (with Crystal Beth)

Beauty has died. The killer? Allergies. ALLERGIES?!? You're kidding me! You gotta be Joke(r)ing! Thankfully for the mayor, the city's birthday celebrations are, somehow, shockingly, still a go. Before Peter can get into it, Becky starts cackling at the news of further deaths. What's so funny? Perhaps some new and improved products could help... or hinder... Getting to the bottom of all of this is our guest investigator, our resident special Element, Crystal Beth! Crystal is a hilarious...

Duration: 00:42:03

Minute 53: Frightful Freighting (with Crystal Beth)

Joking Jack seems to have made a killing - he's shipped a million of these products! There's something other than sales on his mind, however... Meanwhile, Becky Narita makes her presence known, dropping hot knowledge on us like a cat (bat?) falls off a hot tin roof. Candy and Amanda have bitten the dust - but with a smile (?). Back on investigation duties, probing the Bat and giving Joker the ol' once over, is the one, the only, Crystal Beth! Crystal is a podcasting legend as well as a...

Minute 52: Scissor Me Timbers (with Crystal Beth)

Joker is feeling crafty and doing a little scrapbooking. He can't be all evil, all the time! After losing his mojo upon seeing a picture of Knox, he is suddenly back in the game when rather taken by the stunning Vicki! What will Joker's plan be for Ms Vale? There's mooky involved, at least! Throw in silk shirts and crayons galore and we've got some top notch Bat chat, folks! Joining the investigation today is none other than the Movies by Minutes queen herself, Crystal Beth! You will...

Minute 51: Phones, Photos and Phatal Pharmaceuticals

WHAT IS UP WITH THE ALLEY AT PEARL AND PHILLIPS STREETS?!? Well, first of all it doesn't remotely look like an alley, so write that down. The real questions are: just what is Bruce up to? And how DDID Joker bring people a smile(x)? Get the answers to these questions and some lovely new, psychotic, artwork (in audio form) by tuning in to today's exciting edition of Bat Minute '89! The next episode follows on Monday! Same Bat Pod, different Bat Minute! Join us on Facebook at the Bat...

Minute 50: Back to Formula

It's the OG Recipe as Jon and Niall bring it to thee - sans guest! Just the dynamic duo themselves for a well earned break. There's no break in the fun though as Bruce and his barista-esque butler politely battle - complete with Alfred being sent off on a special errand of his own. In a lovely turn of events, Master Wayne finally realises just how darn lovely Vicki is. Aww. Something special is brewing, however... The next episode follows on Friday! Same Bat Pod, different Bat...

Duration: 00:26:15

Minute 49: Talkin' Enemies and Enemas (with Bec Hill)

DEAD BODIES EVERYWHERE! As cops clean up the crime, the mayor can only worry about the festival - and his hot dogs. He goes full 'Jaws' on Gotham! Meanwhile, Joker has been busy decorating - his lair now complete with boxing gloves and porcelain dogs. Toot toot y'all. Bruce arrives back home and steals from Alfred before collapsing onto the couch. He doesn't know what is to come... A very special guest investigator has joined our dynamic duo for today's sleuthing - none other than...

Minute 48: The Silence of the Mimes (with Sean German)

Our mystery man is revealed and he's armed with... a feather? It appears that Grissom DID sign his businesses away to these guys - but with his dead hands, covered in his own blood. IT WAS A HIT! A CON! Meanwhile, many a mime will congregate like a march of penguins and shots will be fired. NECKS WILL BE PIERCED! Back on the case to conclude this week's investigation is Sean German - the magnificent miming maestro behind both the Spinal Tap Minute and Five Minutes of Mime podcasts. Can...

Duration: 00:42:23

Minute 47: Time Square Mime... Mime Square (with Sean German)

Vicki has clearly missed a scoop - what is going on at city hall?!? A wild mime appears. Then another. THEN ANOTHER. MIMES EVERYWHERE! The only thing creepier? The clothes on this damn kid in the crowd! While all of these shenanigans take place, Bob gets his secret snaps for something suspicious. Mobsters arrive on the scene to announce they are the new kings in town, but a dashing, clown-like fellow, emerges to rain on their parade... Once again helping the gang prance their way...

Duration: 00:40:51

Minute 46: Alpha Davids (with Sean German)

A new week of Bat Minute '89 brings new questions: The Bat Minute Men will attempt to get to bottom of all of this, brooding Bruce and even more as they chat their way through the weeds of Tim Burton's 'Batman'. This week's investigation will be aided by a Movies by Minutes veteran: the one and only Sean German! You will know Sean from his fantastic work on Spinal Tap Minute, as well as his duties as Mime Master General over at the wonderful and unique Five Minutes of Mime podcast. Can...

Minute 45: Things Get Steamy (with Bryarly Bishop)

STEAM, STEAM, STEAM! It's everywhere! All over the city! INESCAPABLE! Meanwhile, Vicki goes full crazy and is in hot pursuit of her man. She could probably have done with choosing some rather less conspicuous attire though... Deep in the city, a shade-clad Bruce drops some flowers off at a mysterious, seemingly random, location. Or is it random? The only way to find out is to tune in for more action, excitement and fun - right here on Bat Minute '89! Joining the investigation today is...
