Taylor Talk: The Taylor Swift Podcast | reputation | 1989 | Red | Speak Now | Fearless | Taylor Swift (general)

Episode 106 - We knew Taylor Swift was trouble when she walked in at the Victoria's Secret Fashion show. In this mid-week episode of Taylor Talk: The Taylor Swift Podcast, we discuss Taylor's killer performances on the VS Fashion Show, first opening with Fall Out Boy for "My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark" and closing the show with "I Knew You Were Trouble." It's undeniable that Taylor gave the best performance of the night, but we ponder why exactly Taylor appeared on the VS Fashion Show. After all, the words "Taylor Swift" and "lingerie" have been mutually exclusive until now. Perhaps Taylor performed for promotional reasons? Or because one of her best friends, Lily Aldridge, is a VS model? Listen up to episode 106 of Taylor Talk to find out our opinions and be sure to send us your own. 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!

Episode 79 - 

This week in Taylor Talk: The Taylor Swift Podcast, we speculate on potential new Taylor Swift content for the fall. In the past, Taylor has released new albums in even years (ex. 2010, 2012) and gone on tour in odd years (ex. 2011, 2013). However, even in the odd years, she releases new content such as "Journey to Fearless," the Fearless Platinum Edition CD, and the Speak Now World Tour CD + DVD. In this episode, we theorize what Taylor could release this year... perhaps she'll even take the RED Tour to the big screen? Listen up to find out our thoughts and be sure to leave us some of your own in the comments below!

- Could Taylor take RED to the big screen? Steve wants to dress up for the midnight premiere.
- Note: this entire conversation is educated speculation. We aren't privy to any "inside information," unfortunately.

This week in Taylor Talk: The Taylor Swift Podcast, a friend of the show, Taylor (@Taylorr_GC) joins us from the land down under for Episode 77 to discuss the song “Sparks Fly.” Many of Taylor’s singles, like Sparks Fly don’t do nearly as well in Australia as they do in the United States… why?

- Country music may not be as big in Australia as it is in the United States… is that why some of Taylor’s songs aren’t as popular?

One of our favorite guest hosts, Eric from the All Guys Episode, joins us for Episode 76 of Taylor Talk: The Taylor Swift Podcast to discuss one of the most poignant songs off the RED album, “I Almost Do.” Despite the sad nature of this week’s song discussion, we share some laughs over listeners’ creative mini-segment submissions and engage in a heated debate over what qualifies as being a true member of the Swifty community.

- OMG! Adam hates cats! Don’t tell Meredith….
- Eric calls “I Almost Do” a ‘sleeper hit’ and it’s his favorite on the album.

Episode 72 - Why Vote For Taylor? 

Every day you log online, you're faced with a choice: should I vote for Taylor Swift for fan voted awards or not? In this episode of Taylor Talk: The Taylor Swift Podcast, we discuss the nature of fan voted awards and the extent to which the award shows control who wins. But never fear, every vote for Taylor STILL matters! Our good friend Agustin from TheSwiftAgency.com joins Adam, Maya, and Steve for this entertaining and informative episode of Taylor Talk: The Taylor Swift Podcast. Enjoy!

In Episode 72 of Taylor Talk: The Taylor Swift Podcast:

- Maya gives us her rainy adventure story seeing Taylor perform in Philly. 

- Agustin suggests we pick our battles and not send out death threats... We discuss Bad Kids Clothing using a list of Taylor alleged ex's as a tank top.

- Taylor teases us with the fifth album in Rolling Stone: "It's so overwhelming that when you're starting a project there are such endless possibilities if you're willing to evolve and experiment. If you're willing to become a different version of yourself, you can really go anywhere with it. And that's kind of where I am. The kind of the laboratory experimental stage of really catching onto a new thing that I'm liking.”

- Despite what we talk about in this episode, please continue to vote for Taylor in the <a href="http://www.teenchoiceawards.com" target="_blank">Teen Choice Awards</a> and the <a href="http://www.mtv.com/ontv/vma/" target="_blank">MTV VMAs</a>.

- Main Discussion: the Taylor Talk team breaks down what fan voted awards REALLY mean

- For the Teen Choice Awards, the fan vote just narrows down the five nominees down to four... the sponsors ultimately decide the winner.

- Is this deceiving? They lead you to believe that the award is purely fan voted. Not many fans would take the time to read the legal information to find out the truth.

- The disclaimer is there to protect the award show. In the end, the award show says they have the right to pick the winner.

- Should there make this information more public? Agustin thinks it would cost the award shows their popularity. 

- Maya admits if she ran an award show, she'd want control over what happens too. At the end of the day, the award show is a show. 

- Award shows are not created to recognize celebrities; the point of the show is to make money for the network. 

- THE BIG QUESTION: Why should fans vote if the vote doesn't really matter?

- Agustin says that your fan votes still help Taylor get recognized by the award show sponsors and the public. Voting for Taylor ALWAYS helps Taylor maintain visibility and relevance! 

- "I don't see many Maseratis, but when I do, I sing 'Red.'"

- You know you're a Swifty when you take creepy stalker pictures of old men with Taylor Swift license plates. 

- Adam almost forgot Journey to Fearless is on Netflix, but he does remember that "Long Live" makes him cry.  

- A round of Stump the Hosts turns into a round of Stump Agustin!

The Diet Coke endorsement…. Yay or nay? We discuss the possibility that Taylor is promoting an unhealthy lifestyle.

Taylor Swift goes back to her country roots with Tim McGraw and Keith Urban in “Highway Don’t Care.” The hosts love it!!

Diane and Haley share their impressions of the story of the song.

The highway must be metaphorical… what does it represent? Another person? An escape?  A force? Regardless, the highway don’t care.

This is the first time in a long time Taylor was a featured singer in a song she did not help write – what impact does that have?

“Highway Don’t Care” is an homage to “Tim McGraw”  

We debate whether or not this song is lyrically similar to a Taylor Swift song.

Will Taylor perform “Highway Don’t Care” on the RED with special guests Tim McGraw and Keith Urban?? Nashville anyone? 

Adam encourages you to listen to “Highway Don’t Care” ANYWHERE!

Mini-segments will resume next episode. Be sure to send us your submissions!
