This week on Sickboy Podcast the fellas sit down with each other and catch up over stories of flame throwers, Polio, Bowen technique, pimple popping and more. Jeremie threw his back out, like, really badly. Tay got bit by some exotic insect while in Nicaragua and it didn't turn out well. Brian gets far too high. OH and Brandon is back... unfortunately so is his cancer. Having this be the fourth time it's come back Bran and the boys chat about what his options are and how he's feeling mentally. A busy episode with tons of jam packed action!

How do you tell your eleven year old daughter that you have a brain tumour that will very likely take your life? Do you censor yourself for her sake? Do you pretend it's not there? Do you just follow your gut and talk to her like any other human being? 

This week on Sickboy the fellas sit down with one of the coolest moms they've ever met, Charmaine! Blind in one eye, diagnosed with bipolar and sitting on a ticking time bomb brain tumour in her right frontal lobe that could take her out at any point. Are mental illness and brain tumours related? (We have no friggin idea) Is Lollapalooza kid friendly? (most definitely) Are Jeremie and Taylor too hard on Brian? (Too be determined). We love Charmaine! We love this recording and we know you will too!

This week on Sickboy we sit down with Will MacGregor; a man whos braved the medical system, run the gauntlet of tests and treatments, and has advocated for himself to receive the care he needs. His mysterious and fascinating story involves a diagnosis of Wolf Parkinson White Syndrome that has lead to a series of unfortunate complications that we explore in this in-depth chat.

With Taylor away in sunny Nicaragua, the guys invited special guest host, Andrew The Camera Guy, to help reign things in. Evidently, by the length of this conversation, he did a shit job at keeping things on track… or perhaps this was just a case of a long rollercoaster-of-a-story detailing Will’s battle with WPW and it’s associated complications! After listening to this episode you’ll pretty much be a doctor, so hold on tight, take some notes, and get ready to learn a shit load!

This week on Sickboy we're LIVE from SAIT in Calgary Alberta! The fellas sit down with very special guest Matthew Corkum! He's a meteorologist, has his Ph.D., drives a sports car, has incredibly jacked biceps, all the while is dealing with Spastic Cerebral Palsy. Jeremie's thinks if you cross your eyes they'll stay that way. Taylor invites friends over to watch him bike in his living room, Brian tells horrible wind jokes, and Matt reminisces about growing his giant pumpkins patches. The drinks we're flowing and the crowd was incredible! We had an amazing time at SAIT and can't wait to go back.

This week on Sickboy Podcast we have a very special episode! A Sickboy/Turn Me On collaboration! Jer, Bri, Tay and Bryde of Turn Me On Podcast sit down with Lesley to talk about her experience in living with two vagina's and two uterus's?! The fellas are already confused by how the plumbing normally works down there... double down on the amount of cervixes, uteruses, fallopian tubes and ovaries all inside one human body and they are a lost cause. How many tampons does one need? Can you get pregnant on both sides? Is it double the pleasure? Many of these questions answered and more. Don't miss out. 

Thanks to Bryde from Turn Me On podcast popping by to help keep the fellas in line. Check out Turn Me On over on iTunes or at turnmeonpodcast.com - https://itunes.apple.com/ca/podcast/turn-me-on/id1200938612?mt=2

Jan 8, 2018

This week on Sickboy Podcast we chat with Marnie about an experience that isn't her own but one that has changed her life forever. Paranoid Schizophrenia. She grew up in a household where Mom and Dad don't get along. They fall into a devastating divorce, and soon after mom begins to believe that drones with lasers are following her everywhere and silently attacking her internal organs and slowly killing her. A jam packed episode of heartbreak, hospital psych ward escapes, secret letters, brain washing and home made moats dug around the house and most certainly not up to code.

This week on Sickboy we sit down with Laurie Brown, former host of CBC Radio 2’s The Signal, and creator of Pondercast. 

Since our adolescent years, Laurie has been a sort of radio-mom to us, her voice guiding us into the night as she helped expand our musical libraries. So when we found ourselves wondering how music affects our health, our emotions, and our lives, who better to speak with other than the legendary Laurie Brown?

We have a very special episode for you this week! Out of the blue we were asked if we could hop on a call with none other than american actor and stand up comedian TJ Miller from HBO's Silicon Valley, Marvel's Deadpool and of course who could forget The Emoji Movie!


Turns out TJ suffers from a cerebral arteriovenous malformation. You might not expect such profound thought to pour out of such a silly and jovial comedian, but TJ reminds us that even the characters we love on our favourite shows can be dealt a hand that changes the way we look at life & death. Jeremie and Taylor were over the moon for with chance to chat with TJ, and we hope you love the open and honest conversation, as always. 

Catch TJ on his #JFLAlt Canadian tour and hit him up on on twitter at @nottjmiller. Tell him @Sickboypodcast sent you.

This week on Sickboy we sit down with Ardra and dig into what it's like to live with MS, what it's like to rock a walker as a young woman, and how simple catheters can be, although, Taylor is still a little confused. Accessibility becomes a hot topic and we learn just how much of our society is constructed without it in mind. We had a really enlightening conversation and we want to give a huge shoutout to Ardra's blog, Tripping on Air, at trippingonair.com

This week, we’re mixing it up a little bit. We talk to Jordan Whelan about what it’s like to be a gay man. Here at Sickboy HQ, we don’t only like to talk about what it’s like to be sick, we love to dispel stigma, and this week’s episode dives head first into growing up, coming out and living it up as a young gay man. Jordan also has colitis, which certainly makes for a few complications in the sex department. Taylor is astounded at how much he doesn’t know about being gay, Brian gets reigned in by Jeremie, and Jer is super interested to know about being a “power bottom”. Love you all!

This week on Sickboy the fellas sit down with Kalyn who was once infected with the horrifying and totally dangerous and deadly ZIKA VIRUS! Wait... Zika? Like... the mosquito/sexually transmitted virus Zika? Where you get a rash and some achy joints? And gotta lay down for a day or two? YEAH THAT ZIKA! Oh, and by the way it definitely ain't as bad as you think unless you're looking to get pregnant. In that case DO NOT GET ZIKA! 

Sep 18, 2017

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.

Sep 11, 2017

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.
