Katie & Madyson deep dive into the rabbit hole that is Taylor Swift's debut, particularly five of her biggest hits from her self-titled album. They find bait-and-switches, bearded pronouns, storytelling that mirrors folklore, religious guilt, and sapphic themes. Listen to them discover the demo lyrics for Picture To Burn and Teardrops On My Guitar, and find out that Taylor was inspired by lesbian singer-songwriter Melissa Etheridge. Along with queer lyrical analysis, the archers decode cryptic lyrics that listeners were puzzled by. What's more queer than windows, wrecking plans, rhinestones, mental illness, and honey?
