    The Evermore Episode (Part 3)

    The Evermore Episode (Part 3)

    We discuss the final seven tracks of Taylor Swift’s Evermore (Deluxe Edition): Cowboy Like Me, Long Story Short, Marjorie, Closure, Evermore (feat. Bon Iver), Right Where You Left Me, and It's Time to Go. Kressie shares her theory on the story behind Cowboy Like Me, Ali relates the lyrics to Marjorie to a personal life experience, and both debate the bridge divided by Swifties caused by Bon Iver's part in Evermore. We also discuss the lyrics in It's Time to Go that not-so-secretly refer to, you guessed it, Karlie Kloss. Stay tuned for the Evermore Reactions episode coming soon where other Taylor fans pipe in with their thoughts on Taylor's ninth studio album.

    The Evermore Episode (Part 2)

    We discuss the next seven tracks of Taylor Swift's Evermore, 'Tis the Damn Season, Tolerate It, Happiness, No Body No Crime, Dorothea, Coney Island, and Ivy. Ali shares an interesting fan theory about 'Tis the Damn Season and a real-life Woodvale street in Reading, PA, Kressie brings up a quote from How I Met Your Mother that resonates with the song Tolerate It, and both speculate the role HAIM (pronounced Hime!) played in No Body No Crime. Stay tuned for part three of this album series, beginning with Cowboy Like Me, as well as our Evermore reaction episode where we hear from you!

    The Evermore Episode (Part 1)

    The Evermore Episode (Part 1)

    We discuss the first three tracks of Taylor Swift's eighth album, Evermore -- Willow, Champagne Problems, and Gold Rush. We question the "90s trend" lyric in Willow, unpack Champagne Problems line-by-line and freak out over its mental health layers along with the double meaning of the King Midas reference, and praise Jack Antonoff for creating another quintessentially-Jack song, Gold Rush -- a song that may be from Joe's POV. Expect the following Evermore episode next Thursday.

These two gems are hilarious to listen to. Ali always has me cracking up. And Kressie spills the truth and the tea. Their voices are so relaxing and they give a fair assessment. It truly feels like you're hanging out with your best gals 🙌🏻

Can't wait for the Evermore reaction episode 🤩🤠🥂

A Taylor Swift Podcast for all Swifties

I happened on this podcast randomly and I become a huge fan of it. Whether you have been a fan since country Taylor or have joined during the folklore era, this podcast is for you! Ali and Kressie, the hosts, make these podcasts so fun to listen to as they make it like a conversation between friends with you naturally listening in. They have a lot of love for Taylor Swift and respect her through making sure to do their research along with not gossiping about her personal life. It’s always exciting to get a new episode to see what Ali and Kressie will discuss next, and how they will do.

One of my favorites <3

A good podcast really helps me focus–there was one day this summer where I was working and I listened to the Karlie Kloss and Kanye West episodes and I did way more work than I should have as a part time employee because I was so into it. It’s also like having a good conversation with your friends which I like in particular because I don’t have any friends that love Taylor Swift as much as I do :)
