    Co-host Update: Say Hello to MK!

    Let's give a big GFAW welcome to MK Ashford, our new co-host!

    Kressie and MK are longtime besties who have been to TWO Taylor Swift concerts together, so talking Taylor together is sort of a decade plus long tradition. We have several exciting episodes coming up, including ones on Lena Dunham, Harry Styles, Secret Sessions, and the Swift Life app!

    Chatting with Brooke Barry: A Swiftie Influencer

    Chatting with Brooke Barry: A Swiftie Influencer

    Kressie chats with TikTok star, influencer, and Swiftie(!), Brooke Barry. Brooke, now 21, first went viral at 15 when she posted a short clip to an app called Musical.ly (which later became TikTok) set to Welcome to New York by Taylor Swift. Since then, Brooke has continued sharing her Swiftiness on her TikTok to her 3.1 million followers, all while producing regular, non-Taylor related content. We discuss Brooke's sewing and her current goal to sew an outfit from each Taylor era, handling mean comments, sharing her love for Taylor with her husband Cole, and much more. Please check out Brooke online, @brookiebarry!

    The Jack Antonoff Episode

    The Jack Antonoff Episode

     

    Kressie and returning guest Mary Katherine talk all things Jack Antonoff--including how he first got involved with music, his personal life (*cough* *cough* the infamous PowerPoint), a now disappeared docu-series, and our favorite Jack Antonoff collaborations. Thank you, MK, for being a wonderful guest host! And, congrats to Jack for winning Producer of the Year at the 2022 Grammys.

    At the beginning of the episode, Kressie shares that while she is sad to see Ali go, she is very proud of Ali for putting herself first. Please send all your love to Ali and respect her decision :) More announcements to come soon.

    Please visit Ali’s website www.writingontheway.com to further support her and keep in touch with her projects!

    We Finally Watched Cats

    We Finally Watched Cats

    Good for a Weekend is back and we've finally watched Cats! The 2019 film stars Taylor Swift along with Francesca Hayward, Idris Elba, Jennifer Hudson, Rebel Wilson, Jason Derulo, Judi Dench, and James Corden. How did such a star-studded film end up losing Universal a projected $70 million? We have a lot of thoughts. (And nightmares.) Along the way we discuss our feelings on seeing celebrities walk around like cats, how much CGI is too much CGI, our highlights and lowlights of the film, and Taylor's original song Beautiful Ghosts.



    Kressie and Ali also share a new monthly episode plan to get back to GFAW's deep-diving roots. On the last Thursday of every month, we will release a new, deeply investigated, episode. What to look forward to this month? The Jack Antonoff Episode.



    Ali's Daydream: Jersey Boys and Phoebe Waller-Bridge's Upcoming Follow-Up to Fleabag on Amazon.
    Kressie's Daydream: Search Party on HBO Max.
