Dial M For Maple has been dreaming of a Riverdale flashback episode since the early days of the podcast, and the show has finally delivered with “The Midnight Club.” But does this throwback get swallowed by the hype, or can it be saved by the bell? Hosts Marah and Cameron discuss their favorite before-they-were-parents performances, and try to figure out which year the show thinks all of this is actually taking place. Plus, Cameron attempts to connect the dots between Fizzy Rocks, Jingle Jangle, and the town’s G&G “epidemic.”
