If you're anything like us, everyone you know watches Riverdale for some reason. Following the first season finale of this teen soap du jour, based on the Archie Comics characters, Marisa, fellow redheaded dude Nathaniel, Jesse, and special guest Maggie got together to discuss the show: as a teen soap, as an Archie adaptation, and as a thing we watched for thirteen weeks this spring. We also talk a little about the 2001 feature film Josie and the Pussycats.

Lena Dunham's divisive thinkpiece magnet Girls ended its six-season HBO run this week, and four of SportsAlcohol.com's regular podcasters are dedicated fans. So Marisa, Sara, Nathaniel, and Jesse got together to discuss the show: the finale, the season that led up to it, the series as a whole, and rejecting the conceit of who on the show is the worst. This conversation is a must for any Girls fans still mourning the loss of their favorite show -- or hatewatchers wondering what the fuss was about.

A few of SportsAlcohol.com's founding editors are longtime Saturday Night Live viewers and fans, so we like to occasionally get together and check in with how the show is doing. SNL is getting record ratings this season, with special guest stars like Alec Baldwin doing his Donald Trump impression and Melissa McCarthy dropping by to play Sean Spicer. We discuss those sketches and more: what this means for a larger-than-average core cast, how Weekend Update is faring in the Funny News landscape, how this year's group of hosts has measured up, and what sketches we feel have been overlooked in all of the political hubbub. This conversation, recorded immediately following the most recent, Baldwin-hosted episode, is a must-listen for any SNL fan.
