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.
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!
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.
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.
