237 Episodes | First Released: Aug 26 '15 | 🇺🇸
Join hosts Jeremie, Brian, and Taylor as they hangout and have an unapologetic, unpolished and unfiltered discussion about what it's like to live life with a disease, in the hopes of finding humour in an otherwise taboo and sometimes dark subject.

Even with the f bombs, this is worthy!

Just started listening to this/ so 300 episodes to go. The Audrey Parker- Medical Assistance In Dying was the third one I heard, and makes me wish my sister had lived in Canada. Her death would have been so much kinder, gentler, pain free, and the way she wanted it. Truly- ignore the f bombs and be amazed and humbled at the conversations these hosts draw out of their special guests. Everybody in the medical world - and human family- should make this a must- listen - and - reflect podcast.

Agree with other reviews

They interrupt way too much, and, in my opinion, seem to make light of anything that isn’t CF. They’re good when they let the guests talk more but that’s a rare event.

Simply amazing podcast

Informative, laid back, powerful, with a touch of humor. Nothing held back. They talk to real people about real experiences, learning a lot and in turn teaching the listener much about life, illness, perseverance, and perspective!

Not for me

Hosts make the show about themselves and you don’t get a lot of info from the guests themselves. It’s awkward to listen to the guests struggle to tell their story while the hosts make jokes.

Wonderful podcast

Honest and funny, we learn about unusual diseases from people who are living with them.Highly recommended unless you are squeamish about the human body and all the odd things folks live with daily.

My favorite!

The first episode I ever listened to was the Dead Baby Jokes Aside: Stillbirth episode. It caught my eye because I had a stillborn at 34 weeks. I didn’t know what to expect but couldn’t stop listening and have been binge listening ever since. Love this podcast. Love the hosts. The jokes aren’t meant to offend but rather ease our way through tough topics and I appreciate the laughs I get throughout the episodes. Will definitely continue to support the guys! Looking forward to more episodes 🤗

Love this podcast and these guys

I listen to a lot (a lot) of podcasts and it takes a special one to make it feel like you’re in the room with the hosts! These three guys are honest, talk too much, have great humor, and pick amazing guests. Also makes me want to move to Canada. Thanks!

My total fave

I was introduced to Sickboy through a friend who lives is Nova Scotia when she listened to the Ehlers Danlos podcast and thought of me! I have EDS and live in Arkansas. It was so relatable and insightful to see how others live with the same thing I do. Now I cannot stop listening!

Sickboy Podcast Drinking Game

Play this game at your own risk.2 drinks every time someone says “I’m not a doctor”1 drink every time Jeremie says “I live with Cystic Fibrosis” 1 drink every time someone says “we’re cutting this out” AND someone else says “oh no we are not!”1/2 a sip every time Brian says something that causes a) Jeremie or Taylor to say “Jesus, Brian!” or “Jesus Christ!” OR a long pause followed by “anyway...” (be careful with this one.. you don’t want to get too drunk and miss this hilarious podcast!!!)All jokes aside, this podcast has opened up conversations between my friends and I that we never would have had without it. Also, it makes my long drives to and from work a lot more fun. If you haven’t supported these guys yet WHAT are you doing ??

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I love this podcast. Thank you for covering such a wide variety of illnesses, for helping your audience and the world learn how to talk about hard health topics (rather than avoiding those conversation) and for making so many car/bike/bus rides entertaining. I have been listening since the beginning and I still look forward to every new episode. As a future medical professional I love to hear the guests’ experience with their illness and with the medical system. It made me aware of little things health care providers do that can make or break the patient experience. It also taught me how to ask people about their experience in a more sensitive and comfortable way. Thank you Sickboy! 👌🏻👌🏻

The best!

My youngest daughter was born with CF. We had an idea that she would be and she was diagnosed around 24 hours old. My little sister had been listening to this pod cast and recommended and said it was awesome. She wasn’t wrong. Although some episodes make me nervous, these guys have helped me and I love how they approach things with honesty and comedy. The way they interact with each other is great. It was also great to get Jeremy’s parents perspective. Keep up the good work guys!

These guys don’t even realize they are totally talking over the woman trying to describe her mom’s schizophrenia. Just let her talk!! One guy equates her mom’s psychotic break, related to her divorce, to him breaking up with his girlfriend. Why even have a guest on?

success on all the right levels.

just started listening, but quickly a huge fan. Being diagnosed with a chronic illness as a 24 year old male wasnt the easiest, but listening to the guys laugh about it really helped. It feels great that im not the only one who has a chronic illness and is so uncertain about what we actually know about it. Bringing light, open conversations about such a diverse library of illness’ is certainly cutting down the stigma if them all, and i think thats what these guys set out to do, so it has really succeeded. i want everyone i know to hear the crohn's episodes now.

A short 400 km drive

Over the past month I have been making frequent trips from my home in Halifax to my parents home in Cape Breton. More specifically recently, to the CB regional hospital to visit my father. Thank you sickboy podcast for making the 400 km drive seem short with your uplifting and insightful stories, comedy, vulnerability, and heartfelt messages in hard times and in good. I have listened to many of these in my time on the road, and today I pulled my car over on the highway just to stop and write this review. I just finished the episode Five Feet Apart with guest Justin Baldoni and I feel so thrilled to have come across this podcast that explores the tough conversations that we are all thinking about but don’t have the platform at times to voice. Opening yourselves up to cry, laugh, smile, and experience whatever emotions come forward while you explore these tough topics is inspiring and I’m so grateful for you! Everyone should take time out of their day to listen to this podcast because, if there was an option for more than 5 stars, these guys would earn it.

I can't believe anyone agrees to be on this show

Although at the same time I am still listening to the show, I am often appalled at how these hosts treat their guests. I was motivated to write this review as I'm listening to the endometriosis episode. You may have already heard this input from other listeners, but yes Brian, it is insensitive to track women's periods. The main reason is that it lets you off the hook when a woman is genuinely annoyed at you. You can't be invalidating women's feelings like that. For example, I'm incredibly annoyed at you right now, and my period is irrelevant. If it's about when to be more compassionate, how about trying to be compassionate all month long?I will say, though, Brian, you do typically do an admirable job trying to re-center the interviews. If you'd like to have conversations to educate yourselves and gain insights from people living with illness, perhaps that's something you'd be better off doing privately. Conversations with that particular tenor are not especially educational for listeners.This can't be the first time or even the hundredth time you've been advised not to interrupt guests and to avoid making the interviews about yourselves. But I am happy to be the 101st. I have every faith that this will be possible for you to achieve.

One of the best podcasts out there

Love this podcast! First and foremost it is CANADIAN!!! I was so excited to find some Canadian content! Secondly, the guys have important and hard conversation to help inform the general public in an interesting but respectful manner.
