The latest episode of Archie Digest: A Riverdale Podcast ran a little long — actually about another 15 minutes over what you hear here, since Russ ended up trimming quite a bit of comic book talk that wandered off into the esoteric and absurd.
 
We’ve got quite a bit going on this week. Obviously the biggest piece is talking about “Chapter Five: Heart of Darkness,” the episode of Riverdale that just finished airing minutes ago as of when this episode posted.
 
Other areas we touched on included the Riverdale comic book, which launches next Wednesday, March 1, from Archie Comics. We took a little time out to look at the sales pitch for the first three issues, including May’s issue of Riverdale which feels very much like a wink and a nod to a classic film starring upcoming Riverdale guest star Molly Ringwald!
 
Let us know in the comments whether you enjoyed the comics talk. It certainly seems germane to the podcast, and Russ writing for a comic book website it seemed to make sense to at least address it, but obviously if we’re going to add a few minutes to the show every month or so to look at solicitations and/or the comics themselves, we want to make sure the listeners are finding it enjoyable and worthwhile.
 
There’s also the matter of Beaverdale, a porn parody of Archie Comics recently released to capitalize on the increased awareness of the characters thanks to Riverdale’s success. You can check out the official trailer for this incredibly bizarre abomination below. If it’s your kind of thing, you can see it at PornHub Premium — although, no, we aren’t going to do an episode of the podcast for this one. Sorry.
HOLDING ON — When Jughead (Cole Sprouse) learns that an anonymous buyer has plans to tear down the local drive-in, he fights desperately to keep it open. Betty (Lili Reinhart) finds her friendship with Archie on the line after stumbling upon some startling information she’s uncovered about Miss Grundy’s (guest star Sarah Habel) past.
 
Elsewhere, Veronica (Camila Mendes) confronts her mother Hermoine (Marisol Nichols) about a suspicious meeting she witnessed between her mother and a shady Southside Serpent. Finally, after uncovering Betty’s diary, Alice (Madchen Amick) finds the perfect opportunity to destroy Archie’s golden boy image.
 
Russ, Craig, and Chris broadcast from Vancouver, BC, where they're currently visiting the set of Riverdale!
Craig, Russ, and Chris get together to talk about the second episode of Riverdale, and it's AWESOME.
Craig Byrne, Chris Hayner, and Russ Burlingame get together to digest the pilot episode of Riverdale, our new favorite show.
Just before the season 1 finale, Russ talked with Riverdale's Marisol Nichols about the radical changes made to her character in that episode. Check out the highlights of that conversation here!
Even though we say in the episode that we’re going to try and do it, we don’t have any audio from Craig’s and Russ’s interviews in this episode. To make it up to you, we’ll have a special interviews-only episode next week, complete with exclusive content that HAS NOT RUN anywhere else yet.
 
We did, however, get to have a great talk about some of the big things going on in the world of Riverdale right now, including the status of season 2, the new schedule, some casting news, the soundtrack, and more.
 
You can get the soundtrack on Amazon here or on iTunes.
 
Since Russ is footing the bill for hosting and had to buy some new editing software recently so that he can make all this magic happen quickly and quietly, we’ll probably put together some kind of Patreon so that you can sponsor the show in exchange for swag soon enough. For now, though, if you want to contribute anything and everything, you can do so at Paypal.me/emeraldcityvideo. Anyone who contributes $10 and up will get an 8”x10”, framed original photo of Pop’s Chock’Lit Shoppe, taken by Russ Burlingame during one of our visits to the set of Riverdale.
 
We've also put together a RedBubble Store at https://www.redbubble.com/people/archiedigest/ where you will be able to get t-shirts, stickers, cell phone cases, and other goods inspired by Riverdale and our show. Currently there's just one design -- #SheriffKiller-- but there's a full complement of new content coming in the next two weeks!
 
There's no new episode of Riverdale this week, but that wont stop the Archie Digest crew from delivering a new podcast!
 
This week, Craig and Russ are joined by Rob Raco, who plays Joaquin De Santos on the series.
 
Also, check out the Emerald City Video Podcast, where Russ and his co-hosts will be doing a "summer of Riverdale, pairing movies whose titles inspired Riverdale episodes with classic teen movies all summer long.
 
Trust us: There's a LOT of good stuff to come, even if we don't have new episodes of Riverdale just now.

Whoa. That's a LOT to unpack.
 
Luckily for us, after this insane finale, we'll have some weeks off to discuss it amongst ourselves and with guests -- because that's right, folks: Archie Digest: A Riverdale Podcast ain't going anywhere.

Tonight we learned who killed Jason Blossom — but the why will hang over the town for at least another week, along with plenty of new questions raised by a shocking episode of Riverdale.
 
Chris, Russ, and Craig got together right after the West Coast airing of “Chapter 12: Anatomy of a Murder” to discuss the penultimate episode so big, that it left us wondering what’s left for the season finale.
 
This is another episode that will probably get an editing tweak when the weekend rolls around and Russ has some time, since we wanted to get it up before tomorrow morning for people eager to talk about the killer. It’s almost 4 a.m. here in New York, so…yeah.
