Out of Patients is a no-BS podcast about making healthcare suck less for everyone. Join award-winning host Matthew Zachary each week as he and his guests sardonically deconstruct all the shenanigans in terms normal humans can understand, along with a healthy dose of 80s nostalgia and random pop culture references. So strap in, and let's all make the system less horrible; because advocacy is the only thing that's ever changed anything.
Clinical Trials By Fire with Jane Myles
Jane Myles is the Vice President of Clinical Trial Innovation at Curebase, a platform at the forefront of "decentralized trials." What does that mean? Well, when a patient qualifies and—hopefully—enrolls in a trial, they usually have to take up residence in a different city and uproot their lives for a few weeks or months. The idea behind decentralizing them means all the medications and protocols come to a patient's local hospital so as not to cause such unnecessary upheaval. Jane is also a musician at heart, so there's a bunch of non-science geekery afoot. Enjoy the show.

It's My 27-Year Cancerversary Episode!
As a college senior, I was diagnosed with what doctors thought could be terminal brain cancer. That was 27 years ago TODAY: January 10th, 2023. No guests. Just me. Reflecting on what was, what is, and what may be. If life were easy, we'd all do it. How the hell am I still here? I have no idea. But I am still here. And I thank each and every one of you for supporting me, my work, this show, and the fundamental belief that advocacy matters. Enjoy the show. Oh, and I also relaunched my website, https://www.matthewzachary.com, to commemorate this special occasion. Happy New Year!
AMA (Ask Matt Anything) with Carly Flumer
Returning champion to Out of Patients, advocacy badass Carly Flumer flips the script on Matthew Zachary as she takes the reins for an AMA (Ask Matt Anything) reverse interview. Hilarity ensues as we take a trip down memory lane as to how the sausage was made, the very origins of Stupid Cancer and the young adult cancer movement, and how we've arrived at today's "better problems to have." Enjoy the show.

You need this in your life!
This podcast absolutely belongs on your 'top shelf' of podcasts! What I appreciate most is the ‘real’ factor here…real conversations, real personalities, and so many stories that inform and inspire by way of an invigorating exploration into the healthcare world, and delightfully far beyond. Listening to Matthew and his guests is like sitting down to a beer with new friends, and coming away with a better mind and spirit because of it!
I love this podcast!
Matthew Zachary is one of the best hosts out there, along with being uplifting and hilarious. Every guest has something powerful to share and MZ knows exactly how to bring their best to light.
Dynamic & heart felt
Love the way MZ brings out the best of those he interviews. The episode on nutrition and cancer is powerful, informative and has the trademark humor.
