North America’s Revolutionary Voice in Health and Wellness

The trio who make up Sickboy – Jeremie Saunders, Taylor Macgillivary and Brian Stever – are hilarious, ridiculously insightful and determined to break down the stigmas associated with illness and disease. Sickboy began with the realization that when faced with difficult situations pertaining to health, people tighten up. They tend to get awkward and simply don’t know what to say. Taking the lead from Jeremie’s life long battle with Cystic Fibrosis, the trio helps people understand that sometimes the best way to deal with illness, disease and life is merely laughter. Through the therapy of laughter, we can begin to understand whether sick or healthy, we’re all human, and we’re all dying. So let’s talk about it.

The podcast was born in a public library recording room. Eventually, it moved into a recording studio, which was funded by a hugely successful Kickstarter campaign. Within a few weeks, Sickboy was among the top-rated podcasts in the country. Five years later, they are a CBC Podcast, using their voices to start conversations and create change in healthcare systems and homes around the world. Their talks are engaging, forward-thinking and hilarious.
