Holy jesus. We're one year old today. It's a wild thing to think about, but we would not have been able to get this far if it wasn't for your loving/nurturing nature. You're like our mother. Snuggling us, dressing us, and feeding us from your teet. Literally... like, we legit drank breast milk from one of you. Oh my god. Thanks for being there for us. Thanks for engaging with us. Thanks for cultivating this incredible community with us. This week we feature highlights from some of our favourite moments of the year. Including our awkward beginnings, waxing philosophical on death, laughing at diabetes, poo'ing at death, Jeremie's mom's role in his circumcision and much more.
Whats the most embarrasing moment of your life? Is it worse than texting into your phone while walking full speed into a brick wall ending up with a serious concussion? No?

From being forbidden to multi-task, to sh***y co-workers, to passing out and sleeping for unhuman amounts of time Sherri has been through the ringer.
After our episode with Abby we had a number of emails come in re: the facts of abortion. Did you know there is a cut off point for abortions? This cut off point is based off of "fetal viability". Did you know that cut off point differs from province to province or state to state? We didn't until you, yes YOU the listeners dropped some knowledge on our butts! So thanks! We also cold call Jeremie's mom to ask her some other questions about rehab and whether or not Taylor should get a colonoscopy. Taylor wasn't there to defend himself. Sucka!
Hey...Wanna hear something crazy? This week on Sickboy Bowie tells us about the weird little tumor growing on his peanut shaped pituitary gland.
