This week Matthew Zachary of The Stupid Cancer show joined me as the seventh guest on the Causecasts podcast .  As part of a thank you for his time, we are here to raise money and awareness for The Stupid Cancer organization. 

Stupid Cancer a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, is the leader in young adult cancer advocacy, research, and support. We create shared experiences by producing life-changing live events and digital content that end isolation, build community, provide education, and foster meaningful relationships that last a lifetime. Our mission is to empower, support, and improve health outcomes for the young adult cancer community.On today’s show we welcome Matthew Zachary, the founder and host of The Stupid Cancer Show. The show started out on the radio during the transition that radio made from terrestrial stations onto the internet and before podcasts were really in the common domain. It focusses on and is aimed at members of the younger generations who are affected by cancer. Since we usually associate cancer with later life, Matthew saw how the experience of cancer in teenage or early adult years was a under represented and marginalized experience. This awareness came from his own battles with cancer in his 20s and he really wanting to extend a limb of support to those who find themselves in a similar situation.

Our conversation covers the beginnings of the organization and broadcast. Matthew explains his motivations for confronting the specific challenges facing younger people with cancer. With over a decade passing since Stupid Cancer was established, Matthew has a great perspective on the changes that have occurred in the last ten years and notes some the vast improvements in support that his and other organizations are now able to provide. We also then discuss the podcast format and hear from Matthew why the Stupid Cancer Show migrated to YouTube and away from a purely audio format. One of the big takeaways from the conversation is Matthew’s assertion that the impact of a project such as his show cannot be quantitatively measured when the effects are so often more qualitative and intangible. He also stresses the need for dialogue and the democratization of such initiatives in which those in charge are listening to the audience and those at which it is aimed. For a fascinating talk with someone affecting real positive change in a global community, be sure to to listen in!
