The Riverdale Rag #012 – Convenient Colo(ur)

Are the actors of colour who are bit players on Riverdale only used in times of convenience? Will we ever get to see them as fully actualized characters, or are they forever doomed to be the sidekicks? Chanda and Cecily shine a light on the sketchy way Chuck Clayton’s character is drawn in the series,…

The Riverdale Rag #011 – Sit Yo’ Ass Down

As if there’s any doubt, Mr. Wetherbee is the worst principal in the history of useless television high school principals. This week Cecily and Chanda revisit our favourite Riverdale residents, debate in-school segregation and weigh in on whether the CW deserves Black Lightning. Plus all the news and insights you’ve come to love. Show Notes…

The Riverdale Rag #010 – Like a Basket of Kittens

We’ve made it to the tenth episode of the season, and Cecily and Chanda are joined by our special guest (and Cecily’s future ex-wife) Mookie! This week we discuss The Black Hood Reveal (LOL OK), Varchie and Barchie, and the connotation of the word Southside in the world of Riverdale. As always there’s news, hijinks…

The Riverdale Rag #009 – Betty’s Mom Has Got it Goin’ On

I don’t want to say that Cecily and Chanda are tired of the Black Hood mystery exactly, so I’ll just say they’re really happy it’ll be wrapping up soon. This week we discuss vampires, Riverdale Funko Pops, FP and Alice (and why they need to get it on, already) and the somewhat distasteful way this…

The Riverdale Rag #008 – I’m Parched

Let’s get this out of the way up front: this episode is not a PG-13 friendly episode. Chanda and Cecily catch the vapors over Sheriff Keller’s…hidden talents, they discuss the taxonomy of hot Riverdale dads (you won’t want to miss Cecily’s defense of Pop Tate in the taxonomy), and beard rides. Oh, and there’s lots…

The Riverdale Rag #007 – Gimme Some Sugah

Chanda and Cecily are back (finally!) with a full recap of “Chapter 19: Death Proof”, and discuss the arrogance of our red-headed hero, whether Veronica’s turning into a vigilante, and creepy “uncles” who always ask you to give them some sugar. As always, we dish the latest Riverdale dirt, too. Stray Observations Did you notice…

The Riverdale Rag #006.5 – Bye Week

No show notes this week as Cecily and Chanda take a bye week, but they’ll be back with the recap of Chapter 19: Death Proof by the end of the week. In this episode, Cecily takes a brief moment to thank some friends who donated money toward new podcasting equipment.

The Riverdale Rag #006 – Betty, You In Danger, Girl!

Your co-hosts recap “Chapter 18: When A Stranger Calls”, discuss the hidden biblical allegory in this season (yes, seriously), and wax rhapsodic over Charles Melton’s lips. We also discuss sinking ships and sailing ships, girl power, and other Archie related news. Stray Observations Nice job pimping out your daughter, Hiram and Hermione. There will be…

The Riverdale Rag #005 – Iconic and Beyond Reproach

Archie’s suffering from PTSD, Veronica thinks sex solves everything, and Betty’s ponytail is iconic and beyond reproach. Cecily thinks the show has turned a corner (for the better) and Chanda has a new hypothesis on who’s behind the Black Hood. Stray Observations Since when is Dilton a member of the gang? The original Marian Paroo…

The Riverdale Rag #004 – The Groovy Goolies

This week Cecily and Chanda channel Oprah as we discuss talking to your teens about sex, the life choices of gay teens in fictional television towns, and representation of racial and sexual minorities on television. It’s a fun episode, we swear. Stray Observations Is there more to Cheryl’s spider brooch than meets the eye? Chanda…
