More of a connotative difference: “spoke” usually implies formality (as mentioned elsewhere in this thread. It also tends to imply a listener/audience (A spoke with B)
Talked can also mean those things, but on its face it usually just means someone said something (past tense). Can imply a listener/audience as well, but not as readily as spoke https://wordmaker.info/how-many/spoke.html
