17. Turning Grief to Help More Boys

17. Turning Grief to Help More Boys

January 19, 2021

Welcome back to the Penis Project podcast! We hope that everyone had a great holiday.

This is episode 17. Today, we speak with Claire.

Claire started the Kai-Fella / Kai Eardley Foundation after the passing of one of her sons, Kai. The foundation aims to help boys of all ages have the necessary support to battle mental health issues like anxiety and depression through school programs.

This episode, we hope, can teach us the value and importance of listening, of understanding how different people are, and to also recognize pain.

16. Pedro

16. Pedro

January 13, 2021

 

Today, we speak with Pedro.

Pedro was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer at age 62. At first, he felt lost and looked into his situation as 'half empty', even initially deciding not to go through treatment. But a request from his daughter changed his perspective.

Today, Pedro is enjoying his experience and new discoveries, even saying that he felt like losing his virginity all over again - in terms of his orgasm.

For this episode, we hope that the learnings Pedro had from his experiences, starting from his discovery to recovery, will help you see the brighter side of things - as he did.

14. Getting Diagnosed of Testicular Cancer at 32

14. Getting Diagnosed of Testicular Cancer at 32

December 16, 2020

 

Welcome to episode 14 of The Penis Project Podcast.

 

Today, we speak with Glenn.

 

Glenn was diagnosed with Testicular Cancer at the age of 32. That was three years ago. And fortunately, according to him, his life is now back to normal.

 

Glenn talks about his experience from the time symptoms appeared to that time when he decided to have his check-up (6 months after experiencing signs and symptoms), to eventually going through the operation, and to changing his perspective on life after everything that happened.

 

Glenn’s advice to anyone experiencing some symptoms?

 

‘There’s nothing to be ashamed of, go see the doctor’. ;)

 

------

Testicular Cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in young men between 18-35, affecting 1-2% of the population. To help you with checking your nuts, here is a very helpful resource from Movember:

Welcome to episode 13 of The Penis Project Podcast. Today, we talk with Craig.

 

Craig is a men's health expert and also the author of Prostate Recovery MAP (Men's Action Plan 2).

 

Craig talks about the importance of a holistic approach to men's health, explains what man points are, and why prostate cancer is not a war but a guerilla movement.

 

His advice: try to get the emotion out of the diagnosis.

Penis Project Episode 12: Meet Naomi; The Woman Who Had Her Prostate Removed and Her Story

Penis Project Episode 12: Meet Naomi; The Woman Who Had Her Prostate Removed and Her Story

December 2, 2020

Welcome to episode 12 of The Penis Project Podcast. Today, we speak with Naomi.

Naomi is a male to female trans woman. Please listen as she shares her story in a heartfelt, honest exchange. From overcoming her prostate cancer at 47, her challenges to becoming the woman she is now, and to advocating the importance of frequent PSA checks.

We hope this interview will educate and assist more in reducing ignorance about trans folks and positively, ripple into respect. As Naomi said, "We're not weird, we're human beings - we have the right to live".

We have tried to cover topics you have wanted to ask but didn’t think you could such as: experience of discrimination and acceptance, difference of crossdresser from transgender, being called queer, and saying goodbye to the penis.

 

Below are helpful links of the things mentioned in the podcast:

Charlie Martin - the first trans to join the 24 Hour Le Mans competition. See her details here: https://www.gocharlie.co.uk/

 

As mentioned by Naomi, here is her email:

10. Bins for Blokes: The amazing Lina who made it happen

10. Bins for Blokes: The amazing Lina who made it happen

November 18, 2020

Welcome to episode 10 of The Penis Project Podcast, this is the place to come to find out everything you've always wanted to know about men's health but were too embarrassed to ask.

 

This month is Movember which is an annual event involving the growing of moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of men's health issues, such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and men's suicide. The Movember Foundation runs the Movember charity event, housed at https://au.movember.com

 

Today we hear an extremely passionate Lina Scaffildi talk about the emotional impacts of her proud husband having to wear nappies (continence pads) following surgery for prostate cancer and how this made her realise how difficult this can be for men. You may have never considered it before but what does a man do with incontinence pads when out in public? Men’s toilets do not come with sanitary bins so what is a bloke to do??!!! Lina has championed this cause with Dr Jo and change is happening. This is a story of stickability and not being afraid to speak out for what you believe in.

9. Percy’s Pecker and the secret of the flow thru fart!

November 11, 2020

Welcome to episode 8 of The Penis Project Podcast, this is the place to come to find out everything you've always wanted to know about men's health but were too embarrassed to ask.  

 

This month is Movember which is an annual event involving the growing of moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of men's health issues, such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health issues in men. The Movember Foundation runs the Movember charity event, housed at https://au.movember.com, which originated in Australia in 2004 and is now a global entity. 

 

Today we hear Percy’s story. Percy was diagnosed with prostate cancer 2 years after his father. He did not take the diagnosis seriously to begin with and waited 6 months before seeing the urologist, however 3 years down the track he is going well and is 90% back to pretreatment functionality.  Sadly it is a different story for his father. This episode is a reminder that early detection and treatment are the key to good outcomes.

8. PTSD how it feels

November 4, 2020

Welcome to episode 8 of The Penis Project Podcast, this is the place to come to find out everything you've always wanted to know about men's health but were too embarrassed to ask.

 

This month is Movember which is an annual event involving the growing of moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of men's health issues, such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and men's suicide. The Movember Foundation runs the Movember charity event, housed at https://au.movember.com

 

We though it would be fitting to start the month off with a mental health issue. So in episode 8, Jo and Melissa speak with Parry. Parry is ex-military and has suffered with post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) for many years. Parry talks about his journey from denial through to acceptance, diagnosis, treatment. He speaks openly about how this illness has affected his life and those who he cares about and how he has found his way through.
