It’s part two in our series of ‘Ruin Everyone’s Childhood’ series, and this time a beloved children’s movie is on the chopping block! Lots of people have pointed out that it’s pretty weird that Willy Wonka was fine with baking and stretching children in the film ‘Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory’. But few have dared to make the argument that in fact those children weren’t just juiced - they were iced. Heroic podcast producer/comedian and dear friend of the show Rian Kountzhouse stopped by to argue just that. We have a spirited debate about whether Gene Wilder was capable of killing the children, whether the Oompa Loompas are just brainwashed cult members, and of course about the nature of reality. It’s a classic episode!
