Sickboy

Join hosts Jeremie, Brian, and Taylor as they hangout and have an unapologetic, unpolished and unfiltered discussion about what it's like to live life with a disease, in the hopes of finding humour in an otherwise taboo and sometimes dark subject.

Live from Edmonton, Alberta, the guys sit down with Jared, a Death Investigator with an aversion to throwing up. Jared is one of 6 Death Investigators covering thousands of square kilometres of Alberta cities and townships. He and his team are responsible for assessing all deaths that happen outside of the hospital and determine whether they might be suspicious... and if you're thinking that that sounds like a busy or daunting task, than consider this: on Jared's busiest weekend he's been to 35 different deaths (also, spoiler alert - Jared's weekend is the same for everyone else, Friday to Sunday... yeah, duh Jared). If this doesn't sound crazy enough, imagine what it would be like to be around all of these decaying bodies when you constantly are worried that you're going to throw up. Well, Jared hates spewing chunks so much so that he literally has what's known as hypochondriacs disorder... so, let's talk about it!

Adam Delorey - the man who tells jokes with a broken heart. Literally. The man went into full heart failure at the age of 13 when his ejection fraction (heart function) was at 11%! Since then he's lived a somewhat normal life, although knew that one day he'd need a full heart transplant. Fast forward to today Adam is a touring stand up comedian wearing a machine (LVAD) on the outside of his body that keeps his failing heart ticking until he can go through with the transplant! From not having a pulse, to popping viagra, to including every last name he's ever known this week is full of the laughs! 
 
Adam's debut album Heartless is available for pre-sale on iTunes today!

Kenzie Brenna is an actor, creator, influencer and mental health advocate. This week she joins Jer and Bri in the beautiful city of Toronto to discuss all things mental health! After all, it is Mental Health Week! We take a deep dive into Kenzie's past and current struggles with an eating disorder. From being convinced that all of her food was being secretly poisoned, to committing self-harm we talk about the ways that Kenzies mental health spiralled for the worse. We also discuss how she wished the people in her life could have been there for her! 

 

This weeks episode is also meant to spread awareness about the new mental health resource initiative launched by Jack.org called Be There. Just talking about mental health isn’t enough. We need the knowledge, skills and confidence to step up and be there for one another and this is where Be There comes into play. For more information head on over to bethere.org now.
