Next week, we are back with brand new episodes of Origin of Speakcies, but this week, check out an episode of Scott's music podcast, Personal Records, with Steve as special guest! Before discussing Guns N' Roses and Steve's chosen record, "Chinese Democracy," the guys go down memory lane and recount old July 4th parties, Blaxl Rose and Fake Duff, epic Chili Cook Off urination and much, much more.  Go to for more about this episode and more from the Speakcies network.
In this episode, the guys look back at some of their favorite food idioms: "Bring Home the Bacon," "High on the Hog," "Salad Days," and "Humble Pie." In addition, Scott's kids take over the hosting duties and debut their debate podcast, aptly named "Raegan and Logan's Debate Podast," with a heated discussion about the merits of McDonald's versus Chik Fil A.  For more Speakcies, including video footage and exclusive podcasts, go to
