Episode 36- Red Release Week

-Taylor Talk's 1st Birthday!!

-The "Begin Again" music video just came out (watch in the episode guide on TaylorTalk.org), and we take the time to break it down for you and even include a "Battle of The Directors" comparing Philip Andelman ("Safe & Sound" and "Begin Again") vs. Declan Whitebloom ("Mean,""Ours" and "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together")

-The MINI SEGMENTS are BACK!!!! 

-Our team reviews all the events of the RED release week, including all of Taylor's public appearances

-Good Morning America gave Taylor an AMAZING gift, and the concert afterward more or less standardizes the "arm raise dance" we've all come to associate with "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together"

-David Letterman discusses the TWO car accidents Taylor had in ONE day when doing her Rolling Stone interview, and Taylor gives a great message to anyone with insecurities.  We love you Taylor!

-On The View, there is a kitty smack down!! Whoopi Goldberg's cat is jealous of all the attention and fame Meredith is getting

-Ellen plays a fun game trying to identify which boyfriend(s) Taylor writes about

-Katie Couric has an extravaganza revealing a ton of information.  Taylor even admits (well, more or less) that "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" is about Jake Gyllenhaal.

-WWTD if Adam proposed to her and the ring was made of Papa John's pizza?

-What Are Swifties Listening To? "Hall of Fame" by The Script feat. Will I Am

STATE OF GRACE - Episode 34

-Our hosts give their initial reactions to "State of Grace" having just heard it for the first time

-I know it doesn't happen often, but we made a mistake last week and offer a retraction: The bonus materials on the Target Deluxe Edition of Red HAVE been officially released and include: The Moment I Knew, Come Back... Be Here, Girl At Home, Treacherous (Original Demo Recording), Red (Original Demo Recording), State of Grace (Acoustic Version)

-If you nominate Adam to win a trip to see Taylor on Good Morning America, I will bake you a homemade cheesecake!!!  If you nominate Belle, she will bake cookies

-Probably the COOLEST thing this episode, we share a VERY scientific method a listener used last week to accurately predict the release of "State of Grace" as this week's single!!

-We discuss the unique cover art released with "State of Grace"

-It's amazing how "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" and "State of Grace" provide such contrasting views of the EXACT SAME PERSON!

-Finally, despite what the other hosts say, I (Adam) think music should name a new genre "Taylor Swift" since she doesn't fit into any other genre

-Two of our hosts love "I Knew You Were Trouble," and two hate it.  Maya is out sick this week, so she'll have to be the deciding vote next week!!

-Quote from Episode 33: "I don't like it!"  Who said it???  The same person who said "If Taylor heard what I have to say about this song, 'Mean Part 2' would be about me."

-Learn how this new "dub-step" song is linked and connected to the much softer "Begin Again" and the other singles from Red

-Break down into the nitty-gritty of the song:

What is it about?

Who is it about?

Why does the song title end with a period?

-Finally, hear the latest news and upcoming calendar from Taylor Swift's career!!
