Taylor Talk: The Taylor Swift Podcast | 1989 | Shake It Off | Blank Space | Red | Speak Now | Fearless | Taylor Swift

Episode 188 - I was reminiscing just the other day… about doing a throwback song analysis that took me away! On Episode 188 of Taylor Talk: The Taylor Swift Podcast, we discuss “Holy Ground,” a song from the RED album that we believe completes the growth/story arc from “Forever & Always,” to “Last Kiss,” and ending with “Holy Ground” (which are all songs rumored to be about the same person). “Holy Ground” is such a mature way to look at a past relationship. We can learn a lot from Taylor Swift.

What’s your take on the song? Particularly, what do you make of the lyric, “and I see your face in every crowd”? Post your thoughts in the comments below. Enjoy!

Episode 187 - The GRAMMY Museum provides the ultimate Taylor Swift Experience. On Episode 187 of Taylor Talk: The Taylor Swift Podcast, your hosts, Adam and Diane, visit the very special Taylor Swift exhibit at the GRAMMY Museum in Los Angeles, California. We know that not many Swifties will make it all the way to California to see this exhibit, so it is our goal this episode to make you feel like you were there! We discuss the pieces Taylor chose to include in the displays and the unique interactive activities at the exhibit. After listening to the episode and viewing the photos and videos from the exhibit below, which piece of the exhibit would you take home with you? We’d love to hear your thoughts. Enjoy the show!
