Wonka Watch: An Unimportant, Unofficial Podcast

Wonka Watch: An Unimportant, Unofficial Podcast

An unofficial podcast about the Wonka-verse from two people who didn't think they cared about Willy Wonka until they learned a prequel was being made and it rocked their world. You may think, how much is there to say about Wonka, the most forgettable and most memorable franchise? More than you would ever believe. New episodes release every other Wednesday.

Look we might like Wonka (2023), but that doesn't mean we don't have critiques! And if you're talking about the lyrics specifically, we apparently have more than an hours worth. Join us as we discuss the songs from Wonka divorced from the source, rank them all, and have a heated debate on Wonka's -ocolate based crimes.

Paul King says one sentence in an interview and we have to arrange our whole week around it. This is our fate and our task for this week was to watch the french film Delicatessen which Paul King is apparently attempting to homage with Wonka. It was surprisingly educational!

People often ask us: Just how do you fill almost 100 episodes of a Wonka podcast?? This is how. In this episode we are roasting Wonka's hat for as long as possible. That's the whole thing. There's musical numbers, help from the audience, and the relationship between the co-hosts is tested... but at the end of the day this episode is about the hat

We've exhibited almost immense restraint by waiting almost a whole year to pitch new characters, but THE TIME HAS COME! Have you ever wondered what Wonka would do with a wall mounted bass?
