Taylor Swift goes back to December all the time, so we decided to do a song analysis for this week’s episode! In Episode 105 of Taylor Talk: The Taylor Swift Podcast, we discuss in-depth “Back to December” off the Speak Now album. We analyze who the song is about (even though it’s kind of obvious), the music video, and Taylor Swift’s performance on the Speak Now World Tour. We also update you on the first eight days of the Taylor Swift store’s 13 Days of Taylor holiday promotion, including telling you how you can win a free RED Tour Lithograph! Check out more information on our twitter page @taylortalk13. Hope you enjoy the episode!
