Did you know Taylor received private cooking lessons from Ina Garten? Did you know Taylor taught St. Vincent how to cook?! We share several little known facts about Taylor in the kitchen, so get your apron and oven mitt ready—let’s start cooking!

We even tried two of Taylor’s recipes in preparation for this episode, and we’re excited to tell you how they went at the end.

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!
