A Look at Batman: The Audio Adventures Season 2:
In Season 2 of Batman: The Audio Adventures, Gotham City's cauldron of crime and corruption is about to boil over. While The Joker remains at large, criminal kingpins and former rivals The Penguin and Two-Face have joined forces – and the mysterious narco-terrorist known as Scarecrow remains unidentified, even as his chemical nightmares plague the city.
