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, whether it makes sense that Josie isn't the star of the upcoming musical episode (UGH), and how Toni Topaz's ambiguous ethnic coding opens up new possibilities for the series. Plus, news, insights, and borderline inappropriate thirsting over characters, all from your favourite Riverdale podcast. Show notes at http://riverdaleragpodcast.com.
