Fifty episodes in, Riverdale is still finding new ways to surprise us

Apologies for the poor audio quality this week—our hosts were on the road and had to use Skype in a pinch. Things should be back in fine form next week. Thanks for listening!


Happy 50th episode, Riverdale! This week, the show celebrates the milestone with “American Dreams,” an episode chock-full of the Joneses, semi-breakups, and kinky blindfold action. Yes, this may be the steamiest Riverdale yet—thanks to one killer Choni scene—but that doesn’t mean it’s smooth sailing for our favorite ‘ship. Dial M For Maple also takes a moment to assess the status of “Falice” and “Veggie,” and we preview Cole Sprouse’s first movie-star role in Five Feet Apart. Plus, Cameron threatens to learn all the dance moves from Robyn’s “Call Your Girlfriend” music video.

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.
