You get a call from an ex telling you he’s probably infected you with HIV. Remember when he said he’d gotten tested and he was all good? Well, it looks like he lied. What do you do? How will this change your life? The less we tell you about Jessica Whitbread’s story in advance, the better. But we will say that she defied all our expectations. She made us laugh so hard, we felt a little weird about it (mostly good weird). We challenge you to find a more uplifting, more entertaining hour about HIV anywhere on the nets.

For more about HIV/AIDS in Toronto, visit the AIDS Committee of Toronto, where Jessica works.

UPDATE: The No Pants No Problem underwear dance party will take place on September 10th at the Garrison in Toronto. Facebook event.

Oh, and there’s this Sarah Silverman clip too.

  1. Elah and JP – this was the best episode yet. Jessica’s story was inspiring, honest and I can’t stop thinking about it!

  2. Thank Ruth. This is one of my favourites too. I hope we can get more guests like Jessica in the future.
