Mandler Swift: The Eras Tour

So, the Mandy’s saw the Taylor Swift movie. I’m sitting here writing these notes, and I have not seen the Taylor Swift movie. In fact, until I was sitting down to edit this podcast, I hadn’t even watched the trailer for this movie. And I’m kind of a movie guy.

Listen… It’s not that I don’t like Taylor. Who doesn’t like Taylor, for God’s sake? But another concert film? Prince had the final word on concert films with Sign o’ the Times, amIright? Do I look like a guy who saw Glee: The 3D Concert Movie? Don’t answer that.

So, here we find ourselves, dear reader, saddled with the responsibility of listening to the Mandy’s gush about a film that has come out within weeks of TayTay becoming a billionaire. Wonder how that old manager of hers is feeling now? Whatever. Old news. We’re all Taylor’s Version people now.

I guess I spoiled it. Yeah, the Mandys liked the movie. I’ll spoil it again: THEY ARE ALREADY PLANNING ON SEEING IT AGAIN TOGETHER. So let’s just call these show notes a review of the Mandys review of Eras. It’s funny! And charming. These two white ladies really know how to celebrate their emo-pop. And, for someone who hasn’t seen the movie, I’ll go ahead and put it out there: I thought the podcast nailed Taylor’s vibe. I give it four mandjobs.

Here’s an interesting test… do you think the Mandys will even read these show notes? Stay Tuned, dear reader!

The only podcast hosted by best friends who have nothing in common except their names.

Mandy Kaplan and Mandy Fabian are both Mandys, and both best friends, but that's where their commonalities end. MandCave is the podcast that lives between them.
