In this podcast episode of The Cale Clarke Show, Cale discusses the impact of Taylor Swift’s appearance at the Chiefs/Bears game in Kansas City. Cale also mentions the spike in viewership, ticket sales, and Google searches related to the Chiefs game due to Taylor Swift’s attendance.

Cale raises the question of whether Taylor Swift’s influence could affect the 2024 presidential election. He mentions how Taylor Swift’s social media post on National Voter Registration Day resulted in a substantial increase in voter registrations, particularly among young people. While not explicitly endorsing any political party, Cale suggests that her influence might encourage a larger turnout of young voters, which could impact the election outcome.

Cale also compares Taylor Swift’s influence to past celebrity endorsements in politics, highlighting the potential significance of her reach and impact on young and impressionable fans. He mentions that we as Catholics need to be on guard against making any person, thing, or celebrity an idol in our life. Christ needs to be our Savior and number one influence.
