Brian, Jer and intern Lauren sit down to discuss the hot topic that is Coronavirus 2020. From the facts to misinformation to the panic induced xenophobia and racism being spread just as fast as the virus. If you take anything from this episode: Wash your hands and don't let children sneeze into your mouth.
We have a new member with us here at Sickboy Podcast! Our homegirl Lauren who has never gotten sick once... ever. *EYEROLL* But she did bust her face wide open falling down a flight of stairs so that's a start. We also talk about topics of the utmost importance in the world of medicine. Hair growing out of eyeballs, a doctor who syphoned pee-pee out of a grown man's penis on a flight (not a kink), and Canada's latest attempt to understand how MAID should be implemented!
Adam was your average hard-working good ol' Nova Scotia boy who grew up in the country and worked heavy machinery. Until one day a small yet unfortunate fall led to a spinal injury that forever changed his life. Chronic pain, 12-hour vomiting fits, internal organ problems, major corrective surgery. Adam has been through hell and back. And although his life will never be the same, he's found solace in his sweet little piggies. We dare you to tune in to this episode and not fall deeply in love with this man.
This week we sit down and chat with KP about their experience with abortion. No matter how many times the topic is covered it still manages to hurt our uterus'. But that phantom pain is NOTHING compared to the sh*t KP faced. We dive deep into next level abortion complications, being gay as a form of birth control (use protection folks), identity issues faced with non-binary people seeking help from the "women's clinic", and all the goodies in a post-abortion gift bag!
Recorded LIVE from the 2019 Bioport Conference at Pier 21 in Downtown Halifax, the fellas sit down with world champion paralympic swimmer Andrew Haley. As a child, Andrew had cancer twice and each time was given a 35% chance to pull through. Although he lost part of his right leg, he never lost his fight. Despite the long odds he fought and won and has used that same fight all his life. Andrew truly believes that anything is possible and shows audiences that with a lot of hard work and determination you can own your destiny.
