    112 - Crowning Wonka's Worst Lyric

    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.

    Due to the Great Wonka Flood, we were not able to experience the Wonka IHOP menu together as originally planned. Do not fret though, because Elaine has taken one for the team and is here to report back on her IHOP journey. Plus, we get visited by our old friend GQ.

    ANNOUNCEMENT: The Future of Wonka Watch

    Now that the Wonka Rapture has occured, we wanted to let you all know the plans for the podcast going forward. After listening to these absolutely RIVETING logistics, head on over to the bonus episode we dropped on the feed today that compiles some of the best of our Wonka Watch News segment!
    Heres the TLDL (To Long, Didn't Listen):
    Wonka Watch, and our future podcasting endeavors, will henceforth be a podcast posting every other week in order to be sustainable in the long run.

For more info on the state of the podcast and all those boring logistics, check out the announcement episode we dropped on the feed today!

My favorite podcast

I’m not being hyperbolic when I say this is my all time favorite podcast. I found it randomly on tiktok one day and immediately became OBSESSED. It’s so fun and weirdly specifically niche and I will mourn the day it comes to an end. New life’s goal is to be a guest on this podcast.

i’m stuck in the wonka well and I can’t get out

it actually makes me Angry how funny this podcast is. I hate that it makes me cackle and lose my mind and now I can’t be in normal society without resisting the urge to impart my newfound wonka lore knowledge and hot takes onto unsuspecting victims. just like paddington 2 this podcast is perfection
