Lonely Hearts Episode 4 - Betty & Veronica

Our fourth episode is all to do with the love triangle between Archie, Betty and Veronica, and in particular, how it all culminated in the Life of Archie series that led to Archie's very death. All to do? Not quite! We also have a nice helping of Romance Comics Theatre for you as well, from a vintage 60s Charlton Comics source!

Listen to Episode 4 (the usual filthy filthy language warnings apply) at the Lonely Hearts' Wordpress page!
