Sarah Simpson is one of those people you meet and immediately ask yourself “DID WE JUST BECOME BEST FRIENDS?” She also happened to have a mega wacky cancer called “pseudomyxoma peritonei”. Luckily Dr. Sugarbaker is a real human/god in the world of surgery and creater of the MOAS (Mother Of All Surgeries) where they remove as many oragns you can live without! Can YOU guess them all? Also “jelly belly” sounds fun, but heck no it ain’t and Tinder for sperm donors is kind of a thing. Enjoy one of our favourite LIVE shows of all time from Squamish, BC. OH CANADA!

When we met Larry he was literally shaking in his boots. Could have been from the excitement of recording an episode of Sickboy, but it's more likely due to the Parkinson's disease. It's an episode full of horrible puns and we touch on, hallucinations, gene hunting, Levodopa Carbidopa (the drug, not the children's folksong warning of evil witches in the woods.) Lover VS Caretaker, and of course what the hell Parkinson's is all about! 

Also check out Larry's podcast "When Life Gives You Parkinson's" on Apple Podcasts or wherever you get your weekly podcasts!

Hey Vancouver! Let's kick it off very special guest and good pal Ben Nemtin - a #1 New York Times bestselling author of What Do You Want To Do Before You Die? and the star of the MTV show The Buried Life. This episode goes in many different beautiful directions. What does it take to carve out a life that fulfills you? Meaningful communication to navigate your mental health! Which matrix pill are you supposed to take? The blue one? The red one? Both!?! What happens after death? What happens when you talk smack to President Obama? All of this and much much more. 

Jun 11, 2018

We sat down for an intimate chat w/ special guest Dr. Mark Tyndall - Director, BC Centre for Disease Control!

On this weeks episode of Sickboy we chat with Alex! She's a badass cheerleader chick that doesn't have much of a sweet side... okay, actually, she's super sweet, but she's not allowed to eat sugar and she sucks at cheerleading 'jumps'... all because of a super rare and shitty disease known as Pompe! Join us as we dive into the weird world of sweet smelling poo poo, Ke$ha lyrics, and what it's like to live with a glycogen storage disease!

What do you get when a baby is born with clubbed feet, a dislocated hip, triceps but no biceps,  hands curled in at the wrists and can only bend one knee? This week we sit down with Michelle to talk about growing up in small town Nova Scotia with Arthrogryposis, a rare congenital condition causing hooked joints and stiffened muscles. We talk accessibility, how grandmothers make hanky panky too, and....a hijacked plane? Whoa. Buckle up.

May 21, 2018

We decided to follow up a hard week of loss with some light hearted and silly fun! This week we’ve got a very special host episode AND sit down with our long time friend of the podcast/sound guy, DONOVAN THE MIRCAT MORGAN. Although from this day forth he will now be known as Donovan "C-PAP" Morgan on account of his Sleep Apnea machine. That’s right! We take a deep dive into the world of the tricky sleep disorder, sleep apnea. As it turns out we can say with almost 99.9% certainty Jeremie also suffers from this pain in the butt condition. How does sleep (or lack there of) effect a human? Can one still enjoy hanky panky with a night time breathing machine? All of this and much much more! 

May 18, 2018

Episode two in memory of Brandon Thomas. This is the second time Brandon came on the show to talk to us about his cancer coming back. We love you dude. Thanks for all the laughs. 

****

When you beat cancer only to have it resurface less than a year later, is the battle any easier? For Brandon Thomas the battle is no different. He kicked cancers ass once and he’s ready to do it again.   This week the boys sit down with their first repeat guest Brandon Thomas. He gives us an update on where things are at since last recording with us including how his cancer has reared it’s ugly head once more. The boys chat about new secret test treatments, losing your butt hair, King Joffrey Baratheon, and a new Sickboy drinking game.

May 14, 2018

Last week was a tough one. We lost someone very special to us. We met Brandon through the podcast and it didn't take long before we considered him a very close friend. This week we are replaying his episode in his memory. Rest easy buddy. You have taught us all so much about what it means to live. 

 

To truly laugh, you must be able to take your pain, and play with it!

In 1997 Carol jumped out of plane expecting her parachute to gently bring her back to earth. Instead she ended up plummeting out of the sky and into the ground going 90 km/h. Needless to say, her body was annihilated. This week on Sickboy we go in depth into Carols accident and the toll it took on her physically and emotionally - from shattered femur bones, to regrowing bones like an X-Men. Get ready for a jaw dropper.

Two cars colliding head on, each driving 80 Km/h is a whole lot of bad. When Ashley was in this exact accident, unfortunately (and miraculously) she was the only one hurt... and boy was she hurt! From head to toes you name it, it was broken. We dive into gnarly bone breaks, 2 month long naps, living with horny old people, missing your BFF's wedding, and much much more!

“Doctors make for horrible patients”. This week we speak with Michelle, a practicing psychiatrist, who has a history of depression. BUT WAIT?! A Psychiatrist isn't allowed to be depressed! They are the person the depressed people go to for help. Right? Think again. We dive into devastating suicidal thoughts, being admitted alongside a past patient, healthcare fraud and Brian doing HARD time and much more. As always we love speaking with healthcare professionals because they are so dang smart! 

Apr 16, 2018

Imagine being compelled to do or say the worst possible thing at the worst possible time.  Like the “N word" in your class at school, farting on a date, or yelling “Bomb!” in an airport. This is just the tip of the ice berg that we begin to explore with our friend Ken who lives with Tourette syndrome! This episode is a bucket list conversation and it’s a frantic and chaotic as it sounds. Ken, along side of his wife and his stepson (whom all live with Tourette’s) sit dow and drop some knowledge on the fellas on the reality of living a life full of ticks, swears, and inopportune vocal outbursts. 

Apr 9, 2018

Our new friend Hilary spends her days learning the ins and outs of speech pathology while trying not to fall asleep in the middle of it all. This week we dive into Narcolepsy (w/ Cataplexy). We talk about a whole bunch of wacky stuff like, tongues that grow hair?!? Doctors writing like intoxicated 5 year olds, Taylor's debilitating snoring problems, Jeff's low grade narcolepsy, falling asleep in the middle of hanky-panky and much much more!

We kick off our batch of Toronto conversations with Mark Henick as we take a deep dive into his life long struggles with Depression! With 7 hospitalizations from suicidal thoughts/attempts Mark is no stranger to the mental health system. We dive into the meaning of dreams (horrifying dreams at that), fjord jokes, hospitalization, writing a book in the woods and much much more!   

Mark Henick dedicated his life from an early age to opening minds and creating change. Now he regularly speaks to diverse audiences about mental health, mental illness, suicide, advocacy, recovery, and hope. Mark’s TEDx talk on suicide is among the most watched in the world.

We learn about how blood cancer isn't just a bunch of tumours floating around in your bloodstream, how your fathers Golf buddy might just save your life, the side effects of poisonous cancer meds, and the secret location of all your next airbnb sex toys.

This week the boys are joined by figure skating superstar, Melissa Julian! They dive into figure skating jargon, equipment, and how adorbies Scott Moir and Tessa Virtue are... oh and they also discuss that one time when Melissa severed her femoral artery at the Moncton fourplex and nearly bled to death. If an episode of Sickboy could be turned into a movie, this would be the Quentin Tarantino special - so grab your barf bags and get ready for another hilarious conversation!

The fellas hopped on a flight down to the big, bad, bitchin' state of Texas for the annual South By South West festival to have a conversation with Andrew Palmer, professional strongman, director of engineering of Distiller and Leukemia survivor! 

He's 3x the size of Jeremie. He eats 10,000 calories a day. He pushes dump trucks down the street for fun and he's kicking the living sh*t out of cancer. From painful burps, to blood blasting out of your nose, to mega casual doctors, to accepting death, the boys take a deep dive into the world of Leukemia, cancer and hulking out. 

The SXSW experience has been an unforgettable ride! If you dig this weeks episode be sure to share it via social media and tag @sxsw when you do! Thank you everyone for your support and love over the last couple of years. None of this would be possible without your support!

Erin Saari's life changed when she dove into a pool and broke her neck. What physics are at play when a shallow dive goes horribly wrong? At what trajectory must one leap to accelerate the body to speeds capable of pulverizing the spinal column vertebrae into dust? Well, this isn't a math podcast, so don't expect to find those answers here! But we definitely dive into the world of Quadriplegia and the challenges of surviving a severe neck break!

This week on Sickboy Podcast we talk about DEATH! The big scary inevitability that for whatever silly reason we all seem to ignore and or fear. Roxanne Walsh is an author, certified funeral celebrant and end of life planner. Perfect timing, turns out this is the night that Brian is going to die. Roxanne fills Jeremie and Taylor in on what the next steps are. DID YOU KNOW there are no laws about how long you can keep your dead loved one around as long as you are not committing an indignity to the body? Is pouring booze down their throat in celebration an indignity? Yup... it is... very much so. This episode is jam packed with fascinating tidbits about how to plan for your death! Be sure to tune in and share it with everyone you love to show them that you care and to help normalize the talk about death.

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! 
Jan 29, 2018

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.
