    Death By a Thousand Cuts: In Which We Rise Up From the Dead

    Welcome back to your favorite Taylor Swift podcast!! First up, we'd just like to apologize for going MIA for the past 2 weeks. We were on break from school and decided to take a mini break from the pod, but don't worry we're back now! 

    This week we're discussing one of our favorites off of Taylor Swift's 7th album Lover, Death by a Thousand Cuts! We also dived into 3 weeks worth of Taylor news, ranging from new tweets to supreme court cases! We also played a little game, as usual, and discussed DBATC in depth.

    Christmas Tree Farm: The Chaotic Christmas Finale

    Christmas Tree Farm: The Chaotic Christmas Finale

    Welcome back to your favorite Taylor Swift podcast! Chaotic is in the title, so you know this one is going to be a doozy. We weren't in the same room recording this for the first time since our White Horse episode, so it took a little getting used to! Please give our audio quality some leniency in these trying times, she is truly doing her best.

    This week is the second-to-last in our stretch of holiday specials, where we covered Christmas Tree Farm! We also took a Christmas/Lover themed buzzfeed quiz, went over the news, and of course broke down our favorite elements of the song Christmas Tree Farm!

    If you celebrate christmas, we hope you had a very merry one, if not we hope you had a lovely December 25th! Next week we're moving on to a more secular celebration where we'll be covering New Year's Day, so there's a lot to look forward to!

As a Taylor Swift fan, I thoroughly enjoy this podcast! I have found myself going back into the archives to check out the older episodes as well. I appreciate the in-depth descriptions that the two of you give on the podcast, as I am a blind listener. I love knowing detailed information about how Taylor looks on the particular album covers that you discuss, etc. I hope that you continue to describe things as perfectly as you all do! This podcast is not only wonderful because of all the Taylor talk, but because the two of you have such a great chemistry and provide a lot of laughter and happiness during the podcast. I cannot wait to hear which songs you will be talking about next.

Just enjoyed a lovely walk with this podcast!

I do not regularly listen to Taylor Swift and I still delight in the contagious enthusiasm and fascinating discussion between two absolute Swiftie aficionados with seemingly endless oceans of Taylor knowledge.

Great for Taylor fans and not-as Taylor fans!

I admittedly didn’t know too much about Taylor before I started listening but this podcast does a wonderful job at talking about her, her life, songwriting, and larger contexts surrounding her songs. Learning about Taylor has been really interesting and a lot of fun and the way they tie larger discussions about feminism, music, and pop culture in general is masterfully done.
Malaika and Elena crush it, keeping the audience engaged and amused as they discuss the facts and their opinions about different Taylor songs and news each episode.
Go listen now!!!
