    Save The Turtles!! Feed 'Em Mayonnaise!! - Feel Good Friday

    Save The Turtles!! Feed 'Em Mayonnaise!! - Feel Good Friday

    Jeremie kicks this weekend off with a heartwarming video of a cute little creature being rescued from a dark and foreign place he probably shouldn't be. Two wanna-be grandparents in India are suing their son and daughter-in-law for not giving them grandchildren. Did you know that Moderna's name comes from "modified RNA"? Neither did we. Moderna just began human trials for the next big breakthrough in mRNA tech! Speaking of tech, what do you think is the latest concoction being used to save sea turtles from dying a horrible death via oil spills? Mayo. Bring back straws and drench the ocean in mayo... That's what I say. Finally, what's more rad than a baby falling out of someone at a Metallica concert? Trick question. Nothing is more metal than a baby falling out of someone at a Metallica concert.

    Sex Is Ouchie - Secondary Provoked Vestibulodynia (PVD)

    For 20 years or so, Jayme had a totally normal functioning vagina... Ah, those were the days. Until one day things began to take a shift. After around a year of struggling through the medical system in both Canada and the USA, Jayme got a diagnosis of PVD and has continued to struggle to get treatment and support since then. Jayme joins the fellas to discuss the mental and physical struggles of painful sex as a young and single female, from getting physicians to take her pain seriously, struggling with self-worth, and how she goes about addressing the problem with new partners.

    Homegrown Penis: Phalloplasty - Feel Good Friday

    Homegrown Penis: Phalloplasty - Feel Good Friday

    Sometimes you just have to say oops. But then sometimes you get fired on the spot. Rightfully so because sometimes you mistake an elderly person for dead and then zip them up into a body bag and load them into a hearse. Israel opened up a Blood and Mommy Milk fortress that can withstand pretty much anything short of a meteor the size of Texas. Speaking of space… how many people have doinked in space? Nature vs Nurture is at the forefront of a recent study involving twins who were separated from their siblings and raised in a different country and different culture. Finally, one man has grown a penis on his arm and had phalloplasty. It’s a heartwarming tale, but things got a bit awkward when it turns out his mom volunteered her own arm to grow the penis on first.

    Routine Checkup: Generation Dread: Finding Purpose in an Age of Climate Crisis w/ Dr. Britt Wray

    Routine Checkup: Generation Dread: Finding Purpose in an Age of Climate Crisis w/ Dr. Britt Wray

    Dr. Britt Wray is an author and researcher working at the forefront of climate change and mental health. This week the fellas chat with Britt about her new book Generation Dread and how the existential crisis of climate change is having an effect on all of our mental health. What is climate anxiety? How does it show up in our everyday life? How can we deal with it? Although this is some heavy subject matter, Britt is a beam of sunshine (but not in the “this is too much sunshine and the polar ice caps are melting" kind of way). More like the beam of sunshine on a day in the future when carbon emissions are zero and everyone is awarded free candy for life for their efforts, kind of way.

hajj rind sc ,

thank you!!

I just listened to the episode on June 4th, 2018 with Alex who was diagnosed with Pompe Disease. I love it because i am currently in the early process of this same thing as her after many years of misdiagnosis so i appreciate the realness of it while getting to laugh about it too. It felt so good to hear another young, athletic female who is going through the same things. Thank you!!
