by Wonacott Communications

We here at Wonacott are passionate about what we do. We’re driven to make sure our clients succeed by providing the best possible public relations service we can provide. While it’s easy to get caught up in work and only focus on that, our staff is always staying on top of everything pop culture. We can’t represent today’s client if we’re out of step with what’s happening in the world of pop culture media. Whether it’s movies, games, theme parks, music, social media trends, food, or art, the staff at Wonacott are always ahead of the pop culture curve.

In other words – we’re a bunch of geeks.

Each week on the Wonablog, we’ll have a different topic from each member of the staff. This week’s Wonablog focuses on our pop culture fix of the month. Some of our staff members discuss what they’re excited about in the world of pop culture. Whether it’s a television show, a movie, or a game, we want to share what we love with you. Ready? Here we go!
