final episode of The Riverdale Podcast landed today. It's Episode #235. Jonathan Merrifield hung up his hat after roughly 4 1/2 years of Archie Comics-related podcasting.
Jonathan started out the program with a future book-of-the-week: JOSIE AND THE PUSSYCATS #1. It was a spoiler-free review for a title that will be debuting in a few weeks. Jonathan loved this title and strongly encouraged everyone to pick up this title when it gets released.
He reviewed a series of phone messages, Facebook messages, emails, and Archie Fan Forum comments. He then reviewed some trivia and fun-facts. He mentioned that roughly 150 downloads every week. I also learned that Jonathan has a ton of Archie Comics cut-out standees, which were featured in this video, in his home!
I've been a huge fan of The Riverdale Podcast. I rarely miss an episode. And I've been honored each and every time that I've been asked to appear on the program.
Thank you Jonathan for all of your hard work and for contributing to my growing interest in Archie Comics!
