2020 VMAs Recap (w/Ray Glass)

Oh my God, we're back again! Chris and Ryan are joined by MVP-MVP Ray Glass to watch the 2020 MTV Video Music Awards and talk about the nominees for Video of the Year, and simply nothing makes sense. Where are we? Is the theme of this show "New York," "space," or "Toyota"? Why can't Lady Gaga have a california roll? How is Bella Hadid involved in this, and why? We might not have all the answers, but at least we have each other. Let's figure it out together! -- FOLLOW THE SHOW: @musicvideopod FOLLOW RYAN: @blackbeltjonz FOLLOW CHRIS: @chrisjcoffin FOLLOW RAY: @rayeglass SUPPORT SARA'S CIRCLE: @sarahs_circle_chicago

Shawn Mendes & Camila Cabello (w/Andrew Lemna)

This episode we’re focused on pop’s newest maybe-power couple Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello. Andrew Lemna joins us to suss out all the drama, cliches, and almost-kisses of Shawn and Camila’s oeuvre, alone and together. Whether they’re almost-nailing the easiest choreo of the year, posing for ceiling cams, or hamming it up in Old Hollywood, Shamila (Camawn?) will take you back to the kinder, gentler, mask-free days of February 2020.

Other Boy Bands (w/Michael Erickson)

We’ve covered 'N Sync and Backstreet Boys, and now it’s time for...the “other” boy bands: B and C (and sometimes D) listers like 98 Degrees, Five, and O-Town! Michael Erickson joins us to analyze every oversized costume, beginners’ CGI, and lazy innuendo of pop music’s bench-warmers.

Music Video Crushes! (w/Deanna Ortiz)

This episode we’re joined by the Crushes Podcast’s own Deanna Ortiz to confess and dissect our Music Video crushes. From Huey Lewis over-dressed at the beach, to the glam sci-fi jumpsuits of The Darkness, to literally every friend of Janet Jackson circa 1993, we’re leaving no “Hot or Just Tall” stone unturned.

TLC (w/Phylicia McLeod)

Put on your silkiest pajamas and hire an entertainment contract lawyer, because this week we’re digging the girl power, dance moves, and drama of TLC! Superstar guest Phylicia McLeod joins us to analyze every crazy, sexy, and cool moment from T-Boz, Left Eye and Chilli, all the way from the condom glasses to that time Lil Mama performed with them on television.

Theme Songs...James Bond Theme Songs (w/Derek Martz)

This episode we’re shaken AND stirred from watching every single music video from the James Bond film series. Bond expert Derek Martz joins us to sort through all the tuxedos, green screens, and silhouetted innuendos from the likes of Duran Duran, Sheryl Crow, and of course, Secret Agent Gladys Knight. 

Live From the 2020 Grammys! (w/The Gab To-Go!)

The Gab To-Go's Jake Wallach, Lisa Albano and Garrett Williams join us to talk about all those Grammy moments! We go through the nominees for Best Short Form Video (The Chemical Brothers put a dog in space and FKA Twigs danced on a pole!) and later, recap the award ceremony that some are calling "unhinged" and "way too long." Listen now! -- FOLLOW THE SHOW: @musicvideopod FOLLOW RYAN: @blackbeltjonz FOLLOW CHRIS: @chrisjcoffin FOLLOW THE GAB TO-GO: @thegabtogo, @jakingphotos, @lisa.albano, @badboygargar

Annie Lennox (w/Adrienne Teeley)

This episode, we’re taking on one of the original music video influencers: Annie Lennox. Whether solo or with her band Eurythmics, Annie is answering all your questions about period pieces, gender politics, and of course, searching the haunted surf outside your lighthouse with nothing but a blanket and a lantern. Helping us track each flared-nostril Lennox persona is none other than Adrienne Teeley! Listen! Subscribe! Rate five stars!

New Year New Hits! or: The First Top 10 of '20 (Except the Christmas Ones!)

Happy New Year! This episode kicks off 2020 with the videos sending us into a new year: the current Billboard Top Ten. (Well, sort of: we skipped the Christmas ones. That's over!) From Lizzo’s marching band mentor to Post Malone’s medieval journey to at least three people we had never heard of until today, we’re counting down the hits and watching some truly weird videos.
