Ranking Taylor Swift‘s Exes (Featuring MK) (I Did Something Kressie)

September 16, 2021

 

In an act of feminism, Kressie and returning guest MK each rank Taylor Swift's ex-boyfriends (Conor Kennedy, Joe Jonas, Calvin Harris, John Mayer, Harry Styles, Tom Hiddleston, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Taylor Lautner). Neither knew each other's list before recording, so several shocking revelations are made. Which messy ex do you think made Kressie's top 3? Which ranking will MK end up rethinking? We dive into the histories, the age gaps, the drama, and... the arrests?! At the end of the episode, MK reveals her interesting history with Haylor. Kressie reveals a dream about John Mayer.

The Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds Episode

The Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds Episode

August 12, 2021

We talk about the friendship of our dreams: Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds, and Taylor Swift. Did you know people actually thought Blake SHADED Taylor before they were friends? It didn't take long to set the record straight with Blake and Taylor's day off in Australia during the 1989 World Tour, birthday pies, romantic getaways with Ryan and Joe Alwyn, and of course, Taylor's infamous 4th of July parties. Following Blake's introduction of Ryan to Taylor, Ryan has appeared in Taylor's "You Need to Calm Down" music video, lent Taylor his Deadpool costume for Halloween, and even wore a shirt with Olivia and Meredith's face on it in his movie. We discuss everything about Taylor, Blake, and Ryan's early friendship all the way to the folklore album trilogy that announced Blake and Ryan's third child's name.

We introduce a new segment, Nightmare and Daydreams, at the end of the episode--which is sort of like our red light/green light or highs/lows, but with a fun Taylor twist!

Taylor Swift Stan Drama: Fady

Taylor Swift Stan Drama: Fady

July 22, 2021

Big ol' trigger warnings for suicide, cyber-bullying, unsolicited dick pics, possible kidnapping… This content is not suitable for all audiences; viewer discretion is advised.

To kick off our new series, Taylor Swift Stan Drama, we're starting things off with one of the most iconic moments that's ever happened on Stan Twitter: Fady. Last summer, before Folklore was released, a well-known Taylor Swift fan account on Twitter disappeared. It was first reported that he had taken his own life, then later, he was kidnapped. What really happened? In this episode, Kressie utilizes her $30,000+ of debt for an English Literature and Communications degree to research what happened on this monumental week of Stan Twitter history, and attempts to relay her findings to Ali. Things get messy. Let's dive in!

This is all Twitter fandom drama, so take it with a grain of salt--everything in this story is alleged, as repeatedly said in the episode. Remember, people on the internet lie. There is no such thing as a reliable source in this story, so come to your own conclusions. Tell us what Taylor Swift fandom drama you'd like to hear next!

Taylor Swift’s Fourth of July Parties

Taylor Swift’s Fourth of July Parties

June 24, 2021

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!

We end by speculating if Taylor will throw another one this year for Independence Day 2021, but we aren't getting our hopes up! Tangents include Joe Jonas asking out a thirteen-year-old Gigi Hadid, what we would do if we were ever invited, and the logistics of it all--how much security was there? Was there catering--or all Taylor? How did Taylor fly everyone out? Uber Pool style, or one-by-one?
