Haunted: Our Halloween Spooktacular! 

Happy Halloween and welcome to our spookiest episode ever! Today we're tackling one of Taylor Swift's only scary songs: Haunted!

This episode is also super special since Malaika is turning 20 today! Make sure to go wish her a Happy Birthday on our instagram @perfectlygoodpod

We start out discussing the news, which was super fun this week as Taylor has been busy! We play a little game to determine our Halloween costume by building a Taylor playlist (which you can find here!) 

We go deep breaking down theories about who Haunted is about, our opinions on the acoustic version of the song, and why we love the production so much! We also talk a lot about the aesthetic of the song and the Speak Now album in general, so be prepared to pull out your Speak Now lyric booklet to check out some of the photoshoots from that era!

If you enjoy the podcast, please consider leaving a 5-star review on iTunes! It helps other people find the show and we’ll read it out loud on the pod :D

I Did Something Bad: Taylor's First Swear 

This week our dynamic duo is doing a deep dive on one of our favorite Taylor Swift songs off the Reputation album: I Did Something Bad! 

As always, we cover the Taylor Swift news from the past week, including chart updates, merch news, and more! Our little game of the week this week is a tribute to Speak Now, which turned 10 this week. As for our song of the week, we get deeper than ever before, doing a line-by-line lyrical breakdown of the song, pointing out allusions to past songs and albums as well as live events. We discuss the role IDSB played in the reputation era and how we would have changed the album rollout based on this song! We also do our music video discussion and make some fun visual connections between IDSB and Blank Space!

Come Back... Be Here: A Very Harry Conspiracy 

This week, the gals are discussing a bonus track off of Taylor Swift's RED album: Come Back... Be Here! Sorry this episode is late, Elena had a busy weekend and didn't have time to edit until sunday!

We had a lot of news this week, so buckle in! We discuss everything from merch updates to awards shows to shifting, and lots in between! Our little game of the week is a Folklore themed Buzzfeed quiz that (accurately) guessed our relationship status (you can find it here:  https://www.buzzfeed.com/cxk/we-can-guess-your-relationship-status-based-on-you-9qne8778nw) 

We dive deep into the timeline of Come Back... Be Here, dissecting who it could possibly be about (Malaika thinks Harry Styles, Elena isn't so convinced) and discussing lyrical connections between CBBH and One Direction songs.

ALSO: As discussed in the news segment, Elena may have an extra SIGNED CD that she could possibly give away! Let us know on our instagram if you'd be interested in entering a giveaway!

Mary's Song: We're Getting a TikTok! 

This week we're discussing one of our favorite songs off Taylor Swift's debut album: Mary's Song (Oh My My My)! We both really love this song, and dive deep into our favorite lyrics, connections to other songs, and the backstory behind the song. As always we also break down Taylor news for this week: new records broken, a new tweet, and more! Our little game of the week is a buzzfeed quiz which you can find here: https://www.buzzfeed.com/gracengraham123/what-mix-of-5-taylor-swift-songs-are-you-8txo67lqxx

We also discussed a fan-made music video which you can watch here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NlQbK-Vu37I 

Sorry this episode came out a bit late, as y'all know this week has been absolutely CRAZY and editing had to take a backseat.

MAATHP: The Voting Information Extravaganza! 

Welcome to our voting information episode! This week our hosts are discussing Miss Americana and the Heartbreak Prince off of Taylor Swift's 7th album Lover! Due to the nature of this song and the fast-approaching voter registration deadlines, we decided to dedicate a portion of this episode to answering common questions about voting- including how you can vote, why your vote matters, and why voting for Biden isn't quite as depressing as it seems. 

Don't worry though, we still have plenty to discuss unrelated to voting this episode! We discuss all kinds of Taylor news this week, including new merch items, her nemesis talking about her again, grammy predictions, and more! We also discuss the impact of Miss Americana and the Heartbreak Prince as Taylor's first political song, and how we feel about it within the landscape of political music. 

As promised, here are some voting resources to check out!
