Congrats! You’ve unlocked the Vault! Enjoy two brand new, long lost episodes of the ongoing Indie/Alt series, What the F**k Did Taylor Swift Do This Time?, covering Speak Now (Taylor’s Version) and the unforgettable Eras Tour. Recorded with Bren Swogger and Emma Davis in July 2023. Photos courtesy Serena Yang.

It’s been almost a year since we released our last WTFDTSDTT? podcast… but it certainly hasn’t been quiet since. Over the summer, we recorded not one, but TWO podcast episodes, as Taylor Swift brought us gifts in the form of her latest re-recording, Speak Now (Taylor’s Version), as well as the record-breaking, unforgettable experience that is the Eras Tour. And in classic Taylor Swift fashion, these two podcast treats sat locked away… until now.

Fresh from the Vault, there are our two lost podcasts episodes, just in time for a quick recap over the past year in Taylor Swift shenanigans, before the release of the Eras Tour film on October 13 and her newest re-recording, 1989, on October 27. So please, sit back, relax, and enjoy this walk down memory lane…

Part One: Speak Now (Taylor’s Version)

In the first part of our WTFDTSDTT? (From the Vault) double feature, Bren and Emma take a look back at Speak Now (Taylor’s Version), in a throwback podcast recorded shortly after its release in July, joined by Emma’s girlfriend Mia and their friend Lindsay. 

Part Two: The Eras Tour

In part two of our WTFDTSDTT? (From the Vault) double feature, Bren and Emma, joined by Emma’s girlfriend Mia, talk all things Eras Tour, looking back on their favorite parts of Seattle Night One.
