Jeremie invites Brian and the listeners to join him on his tri-annual Cystic Fibrosis clinic visit. Is Jeremie taking all his meds? Probably not. Does he have a heavy gag reflex? Very likely.
This week on Sickboy: Jeremie, Brian, Taylor and special guest Becky have a frank and sometimes offside conversation about Body Dysmorphic Disorder! BDD is a psychological disorder in which a person becomes obsessed with imaginary defects in their appearance. So what does Becky see that the guys don't? The boys learn a lot about Becky and perhaps Jeremie learns even more about himself… spoiler alert: there’s a good chance he’s gay!
This week on Sickboy: Jeremie, Brian and Taylor sit down with our guest Shannon to talk about the struggles of Chronic Depression. We dive into why Jr. High is SooooooooOOOooo NOT fetch! Monkeys fucking on the hood of your safari jeep, taylor pissing his pants (pretty much every weekend) and the sobering moment of calling an ambulance for yourself in order to prevent self harm. Chronic Depression is the epitome of "invisible illness". It is wracked with stigma, and is a serious topic that needs to be talked about. Shannon was an amazing guest, and we're so grateful for her insight into what she deals with on a day to day basis.

This week on Sickboy: Jeremie, Brian and Taylor sit down to reflect on past episodes and actually end up having a heated debate. We dive into the world of homeopathy and Naturopathic Medicine and learn a whole hell of a lot about Jeremie's love for homeopathic remedies. We also touch on anti-vaxxers and, surprisingly enough, phallic cannibalism...again.
This week on Sickboy: Jeremie, Brian and Taylor sit down with very special guest Paul to have a frank and sometimes offside conversation about the time he caught in Malaria in Sub-Saharan Africa. Paul shares his riveting story about filming a documentary about Malaria and then catching Malaria! Womp, Womp! They talk about Mosquitos, traveling to Zambia in the name of love, penile canabolism and witch doctors!
