About Taylor Talk :
Adam Bromberg, who has previously been involved with a lot of the Harry Potter podcasts, had a brilliant idea to start a podcast for Taylor, so long story short - Taylor Talk was born! Along with co-hosts Maya, Diane, and Steve, we have serious discussions about things going on in Taylor's world as well as fun comic relief listener-participation segments. We talk about our own Taylor-related adventures, analyze her music, and occasionally we also have awesome special guests!!
- First podcast was released on 11-1-11 with over 1,000 downloads on its first day
- The AWESOME Charlie Worsham (who opened for Taylor during the Speak Now Tour) graced us with his vocal presence for an interview released on 11-30-11
- The DYNAMIC Declan Whitebloom (who directed Taylor's "Mean" and "Ours" music videos) graced us with an Interview released on 1-18-12
-The AMAZING Brian Mansfield from USA Today came on for an Interview released on 2-29-12
-The BRILLIANT Rick Barker, Taylor Swift's former manager and current consultant working with Big Machine Records, came on for an insightful and hilarious interview about Taylor's early days, and the music business, in a two-part episode released on 7-6-12
-In January, 2013, our Podcast exceeded ONE MILLION downloads on iTunes and went 'Platinum!' WE ARE SO THANKFUL TO EVERYONE WHO HAS LISTENED!!
About The Hosts :
ADAM is the founder of TaylorSwift13.org. His presence on the show provides a bit of testosterone in an otherwise female-dominated fandom, as well as some perspective from the eyes of a male Swifty. In his spare time he can be seen playing on the volleyball courts of UNLV or in the high school gyms coaching and guiding the next generation of volleyball stars to success.

MAYA loves talking about Taylor but tries to keep it to a minimum in real life because her friends might think she was insane if she did. Taylor Talk is her time to have fun and talk about Taylor and she loves it! When she’s not being a crazy Taylor fan she enjoys singing, cheerleading, and playing her guitar.

DIANE has been following Taylor’s career since the release of her self-titled album in 2006 and found that her songs are fun to sing in the car, in the shower, and literally anywhere. In her spare time, Diane enjoys impersonating Taylor Swift on Youtube, drinking smoothies, watching corgi videos, and laughing. She tried her hand at songwriting a few years ago – it was embarrassing, so now she sticks to writing short stories as an English major at UC Irvine. Her dream is to become a best-selling author and be interviewed by Ellen, even though she knows that means she’s at risk of getting scared in bathrooms.

STEVE is a self-proclaimed music connoisseur. While he listens extensively to music of all genres, his focus is country music and specifically Taylor Swift. He has been blessed to attend a number of Taylor Swift concerts, along with a few Country Music Association and Academy of Country Music award shows. Steve is a huge fan of CMA Fest which is a four day country music fan festival that takes place in Nashville every June where both the biggest country superstars perform along with country music’s up-and-coming artists. You will find Steve active on the twitter community chatting with fellow Swifties.
