Podcast Appearances

Part of my shift out of exclusively writing for THN has seen me delve into the world of podcasts. Appearing on a podcast has always been on my bucket list, but it was this year that I decided to make it a reality. I have been fortunate to find several shows willing to take a chance on me and let me talk about all things movies, and honestly, I wish I’d plucked up the courage to start doing this years ago.

Thus far I have made three appearances, with many more lined up. As each of them goes live, I’ll add the links to this page.

Cage Rage

Hosted by Darryl Edge, Cage Rage podcast is, if the name didn’t give it away, a show all about the acting wonder that is Nicolas Cage. Edge is a super-fan of the actor, citing him as the “Golden Hog of Hollywood” and has set himself the mission to watch and rate everything that the star has appeared in. With an IMDB credit list of over a hundred titles, that’s a daunting challenge, but Edge is fast approaching the finish line. Every week he is joined on Cage Rage by a guest to discuss the next Nicolas Cage film on Edge’s journey to achieve Cage nirvana. After having first reviewed the film back in 2017, I went on to discuss Inconceivable.

You can listen to the show on the following services: Spotify, Apple, Amazon Music, Google.

Director’s Uncut

Rob Simpson’s podcast Director’s Uncut works in a slightly unusual way. Each week he and one or more guests discuss two pieces of work from one director. In itself that doesn’t sound too unconventional, however the director in question is selected completely at random. During each episode the new name is drawn from a lottery of talent meaning that in the space of a week he can go from discussing a master of horror to an obscure foreign director. I have my name down for a number of director’s on Rob’s list so more appearances are hopefully on the cards, but my first venture with the podcast came when I was able to discuss two works by Wes Craven.

The podcast can be found on the following services: Spotify, Apple, Google, Amazon Music.

In addition to discussing Wes Craven I also pop up towards the end of an older recording (focused on director Alexandre Aja) to talk about some new things that I’ve been watching. So if you want to hear me weigh in about Ti West’s X then give it a listen.

Not Just for Kids

Once a week, Not Just for Kids host Russell Bailey is joined by a guest to revisit the movies we loved as children. I joined Russell to discuss one of my all-time favourite movies Labyrinth.

The podcast can be found on the following services: Spotify Apple, Amazon Music.

Ghoulfriends

Each Wednesday join Lucy & Lindsay for a spooky slumber party as they, along with a guest discuss two films relating to one theme. The theme of my episode was Horror Video Game Adaptations, my choice was Silent Hill and theirs was Resident Evil.
