Welcome to Archie Digest: A Riverdale Podcast! We're a podcast about a story about a town, and we're BACK! Things are NORMAL! We're publishing a fully-edited and polished episode right on time as the episode airs...
Next week, we'll be down a man as Chris Hayner heads to Europe for a friend's wedding and to take a well-deserved vacation from us harassing him. But we know he'll miss us, deep down.
It's also a bit of an odd episode because Russ hasn't actually seen this episode yet. "La Grande Illusion" was screened at WonderCon, but Russ was still back in cold, cold Syracuse and didn't get to watch. He knows what happened -- just from talking to the others -- but don't be surprised if his livetweet (@russburlingame) takes on a life of its own.
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 more to come soon!
