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. Join us as we count down to the day of the Wonka Rapture, March 2023. 

Dec 29, 2021

Roald Dahl thought he knew all there was to Wonka. Mel Stuart dared to assume he could twist the narrative. Tim Burton . . . uh, did what he did with Johnny Wonka, and at Wonka Watch, we say NAY. STOP, HEATHENS. Ye who try to weave the tale of Wonka yet know not of its POWER. It’s STRENGTH. It’s SLASH FIC CAPABILITIES. As Wonka Scholars, it was high-time we added our on cannon to the Wonka-verse. In this episode, Felicia and Elaine read aloud there own Willy Wonka fanfictions for your enjoyment and ruination.
