Red note

Hey Nora was talking about the Revenge dress of Lady Di’s and i wanted to point out that lady Di started dating Prince Charles at age 20…and Charles was considerably older than she was…13 years older…

Older episodes are *chefs kiss*

I looooove visiting the old episodes about Taylor’s albums but I’ve noticed the newer ones are not nearly as concise or interesting - as if they are trying to hard to come up with a topic. Maybe we only need this pod once a month? I like hearing Nora’s takes but she speaks non stop for about 70% of the episode and it’s too much sometimes.

Stop the long clips.

Why do we need a thirty second clip of a song every time one lyric is mentioned? We know the songs you’re talking about. Like, we do not need to hear the chorus of Flowers just because you mentioned Flowers was on the chart. We all know the song Flowers. The points of reference are redundant and irritating. UPDATE: Nathan, comparing Taylor marching during TSMWEL to her being “on the frontlines of Ukraine” is not the witty commentary you think it is.
