I'm absolutely certain that Starship One is Maria Blasucci. There are some idiosyncracies in her voice that sound the same.

I would agree but Blasooch doesn't seem to fit the "asked to perform implied nudity in an Ariana Grande video" archetype. Unless that too was a red herring designed to throw listeners off the trail of Starship One.

Not to you because you're not a music industry scumbag.

Whoever it is, the increasingly probing interviews where she says even less than previously are becoming one of my favorite parts of the show. I hope Matt keeps pressing for more.

Also, the last Star Wars show for a while?! Where am I supposed to go to hear people talking about Star Wars on the internet now?
