In Conversation with Andrew Keen on Keen On
Hosted by Andrew Keen, Keen On features conversations with some of the world’s leading thinkers and writers about the economic, political, and technological issues being discussed in the news, right now.
In this episode, Andrew is joined by Matthew Zachary, the host of the Out of Patients podcast, to cut through the nonsense of American healthcare and explain the steps that can be taken to improve the system.
Ten years after surviving brain cancer at age 21, concert pianist and composer Matthew Zachary created the first health podcast, founded Stupid Cancer—the voice of young adults—and ignited a global movement advocating for dignity in the face of health adversity.
After stepping down as Stupid Cancer’s CEO in 2019, Matthew continues his legacy of building community, galvanizing the patient voice, and blowing up the status quo with OffScrip Media, the first audio broadcast network and educational publisher focused on health equity and patient advocacy.
Fortune 500 companies and businesses worldwide seek Matthew out for his uniquely raw and unapologetic style. From cancer survivor, patient advocate, nonprofit leader, and internet radio pioneer, to concert pianist, composer, storyteller, and social influencer, Matthew’s thought leadership captivates and fascinates audiences through his transcendent blend of animated intellectualism, down-to-earth humility, oddball theatricality, and mesmerizing talent.
