Episode 94 - Controversy in the air? We think so. On Episode 94 of Taylor Talk: The Taylor Swift Podcast, join Adam, Diane, and Steve for a controversial, yet much needed discussion concerning award shows… Remember how Taylor Swift wins nearly every fan-voted award she's nominated for? Well, despite having 14 ACA nominations in the award show's history, Taylor has never won an ACA. We discuss the potential reasons why and why it's STILL important to vote for Taylor no matter what. Enjoy the show!

SPECIAL EDITION - Sweeter Than Fiction

Here at Taylor Talk, we think this podcast is sweeter than fiction. In episode 91 of Taylor Talk: The Taylor Swift Podcast, we bring you an analysis of Taylor Swift's newest song "Sweeter Than Fiction!" Taylor penned this song with Jack Antonoff, the guitarist from Fun, for the film entitled "One Chance," which is based on Britain's Got Talent winner, the opera singer Paul Potts. Taylor took a different approach to writing this song; as opposed to writing it from Paul Potts perspective or even her own, she wrote it from the point of view of his wife, the woman who knew Paul Potts could do incredible things from the very beginning. We hope you enjoy Taylor Swift's newest song "Sweeter Than Fiction" and you enjoy episode 91 of Taylor Talk: The Taylor Talk Podcast. Happy listening!

Highlights from Episode 91 of Taylor Talk: The Taylor Swift Podcast:

- Taylor says her fifth studio album is "taking a different turn than anything I've done before."

- The words "Taylor Swift" & "award nominations" always go hand in hand as she's racked up another nomination.... Best International Artist for the 2013 ARIA Awards.

- We jump right into the main discussion: a song analysis of "Sweeter Than Fiction"

- You know you're a Swifty when you bleed red.

- Be sure to vote for Taylor for the AMAs at ama.votenow.tv! You can vote until November 15th.
