Warring gangs run Riverdale, but is The Farm the show’s biggest threat?

Gangs are running amok in Riverdale—really, it’s hard to keep track—but it’s looking like the most dangerous group of all just might be The Farm. In this week’s Dial M For Maple, we dissect the countless threats of “Requiem For A Welterweight,” from the Gargoyles’ new junkie leader to Elio’s sharp cheekbones to (our personal favorite) Evelyn Evernever. Hosts Cameron and Marah try to start their own insane Riverdale gangs, and we ask the most important question of all: What the heck is the deal with 23 Hour Fitness?

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.
