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.
This week on Sickboy, we sit down to talk with Candace Reid. Candace is newly widowed and navigating the loss and grief of her husband, Layton Reid, who was one of our original guests. We chat about what it's like to say goodbye, widow biker gangs, and inappropriately named books about how to deal with grief!

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?
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.
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!
