WOWEE, it's our 200th episode - and to celebrate, we're catching up with a few of our past guests! Over the past 4 years we've had the pleasure of meeting some incredible individuals whose stories have profoundly impacted our lives. We often find ourselves wondering how they're continuing to manage the challenges they face or if they've achieved the goals that they've set. If you've been wondering the same thing, than you're in for a treat because we've set out to answer some of those questions!
As always we couldn't do this without the support of our Patreon members, if you want to join our exclusive club head over to the Sickboy Patreon page!
In honour of the Apollo 11 50th anniversary, this week we throwback to our sit down with everyone's favourite astronaut Chris Hadfield. It's not every day you get to kick it with someone who's spent a total of 166 days in space. We talk about peeing out your bones, beer in space, how the moon landing may or may not have been faked, and how perspective on life shifts after orbiting the world 1000 times.
Asbestos is no joke. Just ask Laurel. Somehow, somewhere in her life she was exposed to Asbestos in a large enough quantity that it was likely the driving force behind her diagnosis os Mesothelioma! What the frick is Mesothelioma you ask? It's a very rare form of cancer that can affect the lungs and the lining of the stomach. Unfortunately Laurel is stage 4 and there isn't much the doc's can do for her (even the world famous Sugarbaker technique wouldn't do the trick) but that doesn't stop Laurel from taking life by the balls and living out ever last moment!
When David was 12 years old he grew up very quickly. Trauma can do that to an individual. And boy oh boy David is no stranger to trauma. Over the span of only several years his father, his older brother and his mother all died leaving him with no family. But David didn't let these circumstances get the best of him. "Shaped by our past, defined by our decisions" - Words that are tattooed on his mindset. David has taken his life story and is using it to cultivate change in others. Now working as a life coach and grief counsellor David is making the most out of the cards he's been dealt.

Abigail has been an OG Sickboy listener from day one. But now it's time to share her own story. A story that begins with anxiety from the human chaos that was Magic Mountain, and brings us to today where the story hasn't quite reached it's ending. Abigail suffers from Other Specified Feeding or Eating Disorder (OSFED). This week we dive into a childhood of mental health issues, inpatient treatment, outpatient treatment, Shrink's and meds! Sit back and enjoy and we dare you not to giggle at the sound of a little snork or two throughout the episode!
