"Sunday Toasted" is a song that was recently released by a new artist named Zinn, and it's jam-packed with American slang and vocabulary which we'll go through in this episode. This song is also full of cultural references about working and partying :).
All in all, I can't think of a more fitting song to be the first "music" episode on this podcast. By the end, you'll have a beautiful picture in your mind of a typical summer's day in the South and understand why lake culture is so big there! "You just don't know what you're missing!"
This song was written by Zinn, my husband (Lucas) and Stefan.
"Sunday Toasted" - by Zinn
Clocked out, now I’m en route
It’s about summertime
Been waitin' all damn week
There’s one thing on my mind
Yeah I'm thinking about tan lines
And moonshine, it goes down easily
Night rides, in the moonlight
A cozy on my knee
Cold beer in the Yeti
Beckies on deck
In the dirty water
We'll be speeding
Falling off jets
No sir, no blue collar
Out of touch, ain't no service
Soak it up
Lake house, party down South
You just don't know what you're missing
Pull out from the dock, three deep,
three boats heading out your way
Light it up, let the speakers bleed
Got the girls choosing what to play
Yeah we bumpin' Nelly, Aldean, Country, R & B
Waiting all week, to kick back and release
Meet me on the table, cuz I’m heating up
We can run it back, wanna test your luck
Shoot behind the back it’s a double cup
One more shot I’m on fire
Rerack that I’m a gentleman
Who’s going next you can send them in
Better get ready cuz I’m running it
Let’s get f***

In this 3-part episode, you'll hear a casual discussion about one of life's most mundane topics: peeing and pooping. It's taboo to talk about, which is strange given how it's one of the most common things in the world.
In part 1, you’ll hear about potty training, you’ll hear a joke and learn...
