Let's give a big GFAW welcome to MK Ashford, our new co-host!

Kressie and MK are longtime besties who have been to TWO Taylor Swift concerts together, so talking Taylor together is sort of a decade plus long tradition. We have several exciting episodes coming up, including ones on Lena Dunham, Harry Styles, Secret Sessions, and the Swift Life app!
