R.I.P. Luke Perry. It’s been a tough week for many in the wake of such heartbreaking news, but Riverdale nobly marches on. And while Dial M For Maple dutifully recaps the fiery “Fire Walk With Me” (a surprisingly literal episode title), our podcast cedes much of its time to honor the life and legacy of the late, great Luke Perry, Riverdale’s very own Fred Andrews. Hosts Marah and Cameron tell stories from when they were lucky enough to bask in the actor’s warm, generous glow. Plus, we share some writing from the cast and the internet at large that truly highlight what a unique, charming, and selfless person Luke Perry really was. He will be sorely missed.

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.
