Be warned! This episode is no standard award show recap.
Short Fuse‘s intrepid host Deanna Costa is joined by a longtime pop music lover (who happens to be her oldest friend), Hailee Edwards on today’s episode. The duo takes on a virtual watch party for this year’s MTV VMA’s.
The pair have quite an exchange, often representing the opposing view on an artist or award winner as they chronicle the events of the evening. But! This episode is no standard award show recap. With Hailee’s professional background in public health and cellar/molecular biology, the topic at hand strays from the performances to the realities of staging this kind of production during the Coronavirus crisis. This episode’s featured song is “Crashing Down” by DYLIS, our theme music artist.
Next week we’ll back with more oddities and observations from former hosts Matt and Lucas.
