Kressie and Ali travel through time, recounting Taylor's famous 4th of July parties over the years (2013, 2014, 2015, and of course, the infamous 2016). We share its humble beginnings at her Watch Hill, Rhode Island house and how things ended with a bang, literally--Kesha kicked over a drum set!

    Ali and Kressie discuss the F1RST Theory--the theory that the order of Taylor Swift's re-recordings is Fearless, 1989, Red, Speak Now, and Taylor Swift (self-titled debut album). Will that happen? We don't know. Will Taylor announce something within hours, completely making this episode irrelevant? Probably. But did we have fun guessing? DUH.

MK also explains w...

    Whether it be from fictional characters from a movie (or Shakespeare 😉), past relationships, friendships, or family moments, it's no secret that Taylor Swift often uses real life memories as inspiration during her song writing process. But--did you know Taylor has her very own share of songs written about her?

    We start in 2008 to with Stephen's (of Hey Stephen) song about Taylor all the way to present day and the m...
