Routine Checkup: Is Chronic Lyme Disease Real?

In light of some feedback from the medical professional community regarding our latest episode Taylor and Jeremie sit down to discuss Chronic Lyme Disease and how it is viewed in the world of science and medicine. Big thank you to everyone who has contributed to the conversation! This is what this podcast is all about! Meghan and the experiences she has faced over the past few years are not up for debate. That was her experience and hers alone.


All It Takes Is A Tick - Chronic Lyme Disease

This week we sit down with the ever so lovely Meghan to talk all about Lyme disease. From tick bites, to Mexican medicinal vacations, to blended up food - we go through the awful disease that comes from those pesky little ticks. Like an out of control hotel party where the cops just can’t quite figure out how to shut it down, Lyme is a pain in the rear.


150 - Holding Space - PTSD (Male Sexual Abuse)

*Trigger Warning* This week we tip toe into some very sensitive and challenging subject matter. Wade lives with PTSD which stems from childhood abuse/trauma. What does one do to climb such a seemingly insurmountable obstacle in life? Athletics, yoga, therapy and simply finding people to hold space. "S'Wade" gets hella vulnerable with us, and made for a special and thought provoking episode.

148 - A gosh dang GIANT Cell Tumor

Katie is your typical goofy fun loving gal living in Vancouver. She likes to laugh, she likes to sing, she likes to crack jokes. But for the past few years she's been dealing with huge pain in her ass... er... sacrum. This week we dive into living with a Giant Cell Tumor AKA Tuner AKA TOUMAHHHH (pronounced with an Arnold accent). Bet ya $20 she can't get through this episode without talking about CrossFit. We also talk about Taylors affinity for doo-doo photography. Important stuff people.


147 - Breaking News: Breanna has a Pelvic Kidney!

What happens when one of your kidneys was locked up within your pelvis? We asked Breanna the news lady and she said “get a new kidney.” Obviously. But that tiny pelvic kidney will just stay where it is… smushed up into your ovaries. ER buckets for puking, Barium enema’s and weak nerd ass organs. This episode has it all.

Mother Of All Surgeries - Pseudomyxoma Peritonei (PMP)

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...


When Live Gives You Parkinson's w/ Larry Gifford

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...


#PussyProblems - Adenomyosis

On this weeks episode of Sickboy we chat with Alex!

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!


Cocked Wrists & Crooked Ankles - Arthrogryposis

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.


You Got Sleep Apnea Bro

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...


"When life give's you cancer, get rid of it" - Brandon Thomas

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...


In Memory Of Brandon Thomas

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! - Charlie Chaplin


138 - The Parachute DID NOT Open - Skydiving Accident

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. Click here for the footage of Carol’s...

“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!


135 - F*CKING B*TCH A**HOLE - Tourette Syndrome

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...
