Almost 13 years ago Josh Dueck, world class skier, over shot a front flip off a massive jump. He crash landed, severing his spinal column and rendering him a paraplegic without feeling from the pelvis down, never to walk again. Fast forward to present day and the first question Brian asks is “does your dick still work?”. Nice one Brian… Real nice. Although to give him credit it opened the doors for a conversation that went deep down to a level that most of us rarely have the pleasure of experiencing with someone we’ve only just met. A no holds barred fully open dialogue about the ups and downs of life from a chair. This is an incredibly special episode and we are forever grateful to have had the opportunity to shoot the sh*t with Josh.

This week we dive into the world of the unfortunately invalidated auto immune disease called Celiac's, with our new friend Allyson... the disease in which Gluten is your greatest enemy. But what is a gluten? We still don't really know - and we don’t think anyone does. However, one thing is for sure, this episode is chalk full of tidbits. For instance, did you know Corona's are legally* gluten free? Did you also know Corona's taste like crap? Now ya do... We dig deep into dispelling the myths between gluten intolerance and celiac's, vomiting & explosive diarrhea, making out with celiac's, having children or not having children, and a bunch of other fascinating stuff! So order up your favourite Pizza Hut pizza and grab a case of your favourite IPA because we’re going DEEP into the world of Celiac's Disease!

What if the men in the world could be okay with being more vulnerable? What is the men in the world held each other accountable for their words and their actions? What if more men began to openly embrace their natural feminine qualities? That’s what Connor Beaton from ManTalks is trying to cultivate in the world.

 

This week the fellas sit down with Connor Beaton, founder of ManTalks,  to discuss the intricacies and possible evolution of modern masculinity. They also dive into Connor’s struggle with sex addiction and how ManTalks came from his ability to be vulnerable and confront his addiction head on by speaking to it openly.

Is the recent news of Trump becoming the supreme leader of the big bad U.S. of A getting you down? Things could be worse… you could have an enlarged heart, constant diarrhea, chest pain, blood in your urine, hardcore endometriosis, skin changing colour, constant, painful orgasms for three weeks straight, random and unexplained anaphylaxis, weekly medical specialist appointments, constantly fainting, and many many MANY more things which are all happening to Brittney. For her whole life she’s lived with some sort of totally f&$%ed up mega rare issue where her whole body seems to hate her and is lashing out with vengeance. So, sure the end of the world may be close, but hey… things could always be worse. Tune in as we have our minds blown by the insanity that is Brittney and her Mystery Disease.

If you were 3'6" tall how much differently would you see the world? For Jim, not all that different. 

This week on Sickboy we sit down with Jim as he describes what life is like as someone who lives with extreme Dwarfism. We create a safe space where we can ask the questions we've always wanted to ask! We talk about everything from getting busy with an average sized person, to the names Jim and other little people prefer, work as an LP, and of course the age ol' question... how big is it? We also got to speak to Jim's 11 year old son Caden, He's also a little person and he's got a sailors mouth.

Herpe Halloween everyone! This week we get extra spooky. We aren't talking about spiders or goblins or ghouls. Instead we're talking about HERPES!  The fella's are in Vancouver and sit down with their first West Coast guest Hannah, she has HSV1 & 2. The conversation is full of extra spooky. Stories of hijinks in the deep dark woods, waking up one day with sores on your lady bits, revealing to new partners you have the herps, and much more! Oh... spoiler alert! Herpes isn't nearly as scary as one might think. Tune in to find out why it hasn't ruined Hannah's life!

What do you do when nobody around you can hear the music you hear? How do you explain to your loved ones that you don't recognize yourself in the mirror? Who do you call when you hear scary voices coming out of the walls?   Last week we dived into what it's like to care for a loved one with Schizophrenia. This week we sit down with Laura. She has Schizophrenia or as she likes to put it, madness. In this very raw conversation Laura opens up about her most horrifying hallucinations, the mourning of her identity before the madness set in and shares some of the art shes created through her recovery.

The title says it all... This week we do a little personal update for Bri-Guy. Turns out everyone's favourite lispy blonde cutie isn't a hypochondriac after all. He got (semi)tested and the results are in. ADHD positive. Will he lean into this diagnosis and use it as a crutch? Probably. Ugh... Also on a more serious note, Brians mom came down with a case of Cancer. We talk about the reaction of his friends and family and how he's handling it all!

Oct 17, 2016

This week on Sickboy: we sit down with CC, her Mom has Schizophrenia. We explore the challenges of living with someone who experiences extreme paranoia - like Xtreme paranoia... like imagine smoking up and the 5-0 roll up so you quickly ash the bud but like then you realize you're flying so high that the Po-po are actually just your buddy who just turned up with more Skunk. Yeah like that. Times a hundred. So seriously, tune into this episode... because it got us right in the feels.

This week on Sickboy, we sit down with Caleb. He's got ADHD. Brian thinks he also has it (big surprise), but is almost certainly wrong (as usual), Jeremie is really, really curious about adderall, and Taylor is astonished by how this episode itself is a real live example of what it's like to have ADHD 

Oct 3, 2016

While Jeremie was visiting Montreal he met a young girl named Brittany. For almost half of her life Brittany never spoke a word. She suffered from a complex childhood anxiety disorder known as Selective Mutism. Jeremie and Britt explore the social challenges of growing up without a voice and the scary thought of hearing yourself speak for the first time. The two discuss first words and favourite words and Jer may or may not step over the line when it comes to "political correctness"... spoiler alert: of course he does....

Sep 26, 2016

This week on Sickboy: We sit down with Katie. A professional puker! We’ll I guess she’d really be considered an amateur puker seeing as how she isn’t getting paid to upchuck. Katie has Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome. If you’re saying to yourself “what the F is that?!” look no further than our discussion with Katie. We dive deep into the world of CVS and Katies experience of bi or tri monthly 12 hour episodes of vomiting, for 10 years straight. The boys share their most epic throw up experiences, Katie trumps them all, and it turns out Jeremie likes to barf.

Holy jesus. We're one year old today. It's a wild thing to think about, but we would not have been able to get this far if it wasn't for your loving/nurturing nature. You're like our mother. Snuggling us, dressing us, and feeding us from your teet. Literally... like, we legit drank breast milk from one of you. Oh my god.  Thanks for being there for us.  Thanks for engaging with us.  Thanks for cultivating this incredible community with us. This week we feature highlights from some of our favourite moments of the year. Including our awkward beginnings, waxing philosophical on death, laughing at diabetes, poo'ing at death, Jeremie's mom's role in his circumcision and much more.  

Sep 12, 2016

Whats the most embarrasing moment of your life? Is it worse than texting into your phone while walking full speed into a brick wall ending up with a serious concussion? No? Well, then you ain't got s*** on Sherri.   This week the boys chat with Sherri and dive into the world of Concussions. From being forbidden to multi-task, to sh***y co-workers, to passing out and sleeping for unhuman amounts of time Sherri has been through the ringer. 

Sep 8, 2016

After our episode with Abby we had a number of emails come in re: the facts of abortion. Did you know there is a cut off point for abortions? This cut off point is based off of "fetal viability". Did you know that cut off point differs from province to province or state to state? We didn't until you, yes YOU the listeners dropped some knowledge on our butts! So thanks! We also cold call Jeremie's mom to ask her some other questions about rehab and whether or not Taylor should get a colonoscopy. Taylor wasn't there to defend himself. Sucka!  

Sep 5, 2016

Hey...Wanna hear something crazy?   This week on Sickboy Bowie tells us about the weird little tumor growing on his peanut shaped pituitary gland.

What does an alien chest buster and the miracle of birth have in common? Nothing.   This week on Sickboy: The guys sit down with Danielle the Doula to talk about pregnancy and breast feeding. Jeremie faces his deepest darkest fears, Taylor learns about acceptable auto cannibalism, and Brian expresses how much he’d prefer to suck from the teet of a human than the teet of a cow.

Aug 15, 2016

He gives us an update on where things are at since last recording with us including how his cancer has reared it’s ugly head once more.

What do you do when someone is having a seizure? Shove an object into their mouth? Step over their limp/flopping body? Assume they are pulling a zany prank? These are just some of the stupid things people assumed was necessary when Carole experienced epileptic seizures. This week we dive into the world of epilepsy. We talk about flashing lights, how a tonic clonic has nothing to do with cleaning out your butthole, elevator doors and almost but not quite drowning to death.
