This week on Sickboy the guys sit down with an 18 year old Knight in shining armour. Literally. Danielle lives with a Mast Cell and Ehlers-Danlos syndrome but that doesn’t stop her from taking part in medieval battles. We dive into the world of L.A.R.P and Brian geeks out a little too much on World of Warcraft. Danielle reminds us of the importance of developing and seeking community in times of need. Oh, and one more thing a real life opera singer stops the studio for a show.

This week on Sickboy we sit down with Haley and talk heart stuff, time bombs and the most ideal place to stick a catheter in your body.

What is a high heart beat? 150 bpm? 180bpm? Try 260….while sitting still….for 6 hours. For Haley, this is all apart of an episode of Supraventricular Tachycardia, or more boringly referred to as SVT. Having to take drugs that give you the feeling of imminent death and shoving catheters up through your crotch are a just a part of the experience. Join us for an ever-riveting conversation about the absurdity of living illness.

Man goes to doctor. Says he's depressed. Says life seems harsh and cruel. Says he feels all alone in a threatening world where what lies ahead is vague and uncertain. Doctor says, "Treatment is simple. Great clown Pagliacci is in town tonight. Go and see him. That should pick you up." Man bursts into tears. Says, "But doctor...I am Pagliacci.” - Alan Moore. For this week’s very special episode we speak to Sunee Dhaliwal, Canadian stand up comedian, about life as a touring comedian, using humour and performance to manage grief, the inevitability of offending someone. Check Sunee out on social media @sunnydcomedy.

We’ve made it Sicko’s! EPISODE 100!?!?! Get ready to get spiritual af! What is life? What is consciousness? What is the soul?  What is reality? This week we sit down with David Maginley, M.Div, an interfaith chaplain who offers guidance to those within palliative care. Wait, Sickboy mixed with religion?! Don’t worry there’s not much starch in this clergy man’s collar. He’s not interested in what you believe, he’s interested in the quality of your love. Oh and on top of all that, David has a rare form of cancer that expresses itself not unlike the critically acclaimed Jason Statham film ‘Crank’. A ticking cancer time bomb within his body that once went off and killed him. Yup… David died. But he has risen and sits down with the boys to spread some wisdom and blow some minds. Check out what David is up to and buy a copy of his latest book "Beyond Surviving" over at his website http://www.davidmaginley.com/

It’s not everyday you meet a couple of people and know immediately that you were meant to be besties, so we took full advantage when we met Zoe and Sophia, hosts of Just Chips Dot Com (the podcast, not the website) and invited them to join us for a host episode we would be recording while in TO. Most notably, we chatted about what our badass Rock n’ Roll death would be, and that went in a lot of interesting directions. Strap in, check it out & have fun.

Stomas, ports, megacolons, no colons, and dogs. This weeks episode is all sorts of silly, disgusting, hilarious, and fascinating. Patrick, much like dog, has only one meter of small intestine. He has  Hirschsprung's Disease, a form of megacolon. What is a megacolon? Exactly what it sounds like, a big ass colon. With no colon, a jajunostomy, a port and a useless asshole, Patrick lives a rather interesting life. Get ready for some silly.

What happens when you have a tumour wrapped around your carotid artery? A whole wack load of life long lessons. This week on Sickboy the fellas sit down with Judith John, former VP of Communications for SickKids and frequent flyer of the healthcare system. Judith unfortunately had to step down from her executive role at SickKids after doctors found a tumour on her brain, but that didn’t stop this wonderful woman from making a difference in the world. We talk ultimate booger removal, jeremie’s transition from the IWK to the QEII adult clinic, the Canadian healthcare system VS American healthcare system, and a buttload more.

Jun 26, 2017

This week on Sickboy the guys sit down with Jesse Hayman, Director of Development & Communications at Jack.org.

They dive deep into the world of grief; what is the difference between mental health & mental illness? is there a right way to grieve? and what is the most practical way to circumcise a baby? Okay, maybe that last one is a bit of a stretch…

Jesse’s ability to be vulnerable about his experience with grief is empowering and, with his colleagues at Jack.org, he is changing the way we think about mental health.

Imagine the challenges facing a 16 year old boy who sh*t's 10 times a day? No one like's pooping in public, but when you go that often, it's the only option. This week on Sickboy the lads sit down with the deep and silky voiced Adrian. They dive into everything from Human donut anatomy, quantum physics, black holes and brown holes.

Buckle up for an inspiring conversation about owning life with a chronic disease.

Did you know May 28th was Multiple Birth awareness day! Why would anyone want to be aware of multiple births? Wait… what does Multiple births even mean? More than one baby at one time, DUH! Twins, Triplets, Quadruplets, Octomom! Did you know that as soon as twins are confirmed to be within the womb that the mother is considered a high risk pregnancy? This week we speak to Jill about her high risk pregnancy with her twin boys and the subsequent post-partum depression that followed. Can Jeremie stomach all the baby talk? Unlikely.

May 22, 2017

Imagine you spend hours of your day obsessing over a million little wrinkles and scars all over your face. Obsessing to the point where it cuts into your social & work life. To the point where you become depressed and suicidal. Imagine everyone around you tells you that they don’t see what you see… except for your sister. Your twin sister. She sees what you see. And you see the same scars on her face. Obviously it must be real then right?! Nah. That’s Body Dysmorphic Disorder yo. This week we talk to Ev about her trippy experience with BDD that she shared with her identical twin. Jeremie obsesses over his acne, Brian doesn’t understand at first but then has a life changing revelation. Taylor, well Taylor just does his thang. Ya know?

May 8, 2017

This week on Sickboy Podcast: Sexual Assault. We cover a topic that no doubt will make some people feel a little bit uncomfortable. Lauren was courageous enough to sit down with the fellas and share her experience in being directly affected by a sexual assault six years ago. How one individual carelessly bestowed PTSD, sleep paralysis, depression and more upon her. It’s a conversation that three privilege males have little skin in the game aside from feelings of empathy and frustration at how some people can be so horrendous. Tune in this week with open wide open and hearts wide open.

May 1, 2017

This week on Sickboy: Meditation Saved My Life! After floating at the Floatation Centre in Halifax the boys hang out with people who make womb-simulating meditation a possibility. As always, they ask some hard hitting questions: how can floating help cope with panic attacks and death, what do the bowflex and floating have in common, and whats it like hanging out with the demogorgan in the upside down? Sit back, relax, and zone into these solfeggio frequencies - this is an episode you don’t want to miss!

Rob Dyer lost a lot of very important people to cancer in a very short amount of time. He was young, devastated and ambitious, so he decided to channel all of his emotions into one big idea: a skate marathon that started on the west coast of the United States and culminated in his hometown near Toronto. The whole idea was to prove that anything can be done with enough determination, and he hoped that this philosophy would inspire people to stay optimistic about dealing with cancer in its various forms. Needless to say, it did just that. Over the last 10 years Skate 4 Cancer has skated across multiple countries, joined forces with major bands and tours, and visited schools around the globe all raising awareness and spreading knowledge of early cancer prevention and detection. Through clothing sales, community events, and the S4C Shop they have donated over $150,000 to Wellspring to help fund educational and support programs for individuals and families affected by cancer. Rob Dyer is one gem of a human being and we hope you fall as deeply in love with him as we did.

Josh Cassidy is a world record holding Wheelchair racer. In 2010, Cassidy won the London Marathon. Oh, but here's the thing, he was diagnosed with neuroblastoma cancer in the spine and abdomen weeks after birth. He was given a very low chance of survival but was declared cancer-free after 5 years of remission, but it left his legs partially paralyzed. Did that shit stop him? Nah. Broke the world record for the Boston marathon, a Paralympic podium contender, can do chin-ups while strapped into a wheelchair?!? This week: Our live recording from Movember house in Toronto. We dive into everything from Memories as a one year old, things that you just NEVER say to someone in a wheelchair, the origin of the word handicap and the fact that a man who is partially paralyzed has larger thighs than Jeremie.

Ever wonder what the difference is between a headache and a migraine? Yea, so did we - at least that was until this week's episode of Sickboy. That's right, this week we're talking about Chronic Migraines! But that's not it, we also explore what the deal is with stars being made up shapes, who has the worst GP, and how stinky Taylor's farts are... spoiler alert: they can make paint peel off walls!

This week on Sickboy, we sit down with Emily to chat about being born with a Cleft Palette. Does Sickboy need a 4th host? If so, Emily is it. She jives with the guys about how mouth surgery can work magic in the bedroom (or the back of a car), why rural female Filipinos need to stop sinning so god damn much, and why Brian think it would be best to live forever....wait, is that this episode? Whatever. Either way, he's wrong.
