I did a special instalment for Comedy Central when The Trust came out on DVD: We Used The New Nicolas Cage Film To Choose Our Lottery Numbers

And after I’d temporarily finished in 2016 I wrote a defence of Cage for the New Statesman: The most misunderstood man in Hollywood? What I learned from watching every Nicolas Cage film

I’ve also talked about my quest on two “watching every film with Nicolas Cage in”-based podcasts — PodCage, who interviewed me, and Cage Club, who invited me to help them review 2017’s ‘Arsenal’.
