Quick note: Apologies for the lower audio quality this week—we had to record on the fly in an irregular space. We’ll step it back up next week, we promise!

“Join us! We welcome you!” Just when you think Riverdale can’t get any weirder, The Farm fully lets its cult flag fly in “Fear The Reaper.” This week, Dial M For Maple is thrilled to welcome back special guest host, LaToya Ferguson! Though LaToya used to write The A.V. Club reviews for the series, she tapped out earlier this season, so Cameron does his best Edgar Evernever impression to draw her back into the cult of Riverdale. Plus, we say goodbye to Josie McCoy—one of the show’s only characters with any common sense—and LaToya shares her well-founded research on all the ways Riverdale actually mirrors Glee.

If you’re a Riverdale fan, you’ll definitely want to give Dial M For Maple a listen. You can subscribe here, and can even drop us a review over on Apple Podcasts. As always, we’re taking comments and questions on Twitter, so just hit up @DialMForMaple, and we’ll see it.
