We Fact Up (AUS)

"We Fact Up" was born out of the notion that before the internet existed people would have to actually try and work things out for themselves when asked a question. Like, "what does 'O.K.' stand for?" or "who invented the high five?". Listeners send in their questions, the gang then try to work the answer out without the help of Google. After a lot of discussion and general stupidity, the team then see how close (or how far off in most cases) they were to the answer - hopefully to hilarious, or mildly amusing, results.

There's been many crazes in the history of human existence. Yo Yos, Hoola Hoops, Human Rights. All of them briefly gracing us with their mundane presence then drifting off into the ether, forgotten about forever. One such craze was fish swallowing which swept through the United States in the 30s. Join us as we ask why, where and when this all took place. Well, not when, it was clearly 1939. But the other stuff. Also fast fact - why do they say Cutie Patootie? Dave Zwolenski - @davezwol Redd Peterson - @redd5678 Martine - @blakeyjames www.wefactup.com

Off the back of Serena William's tennis controversy, we have some controversy of our own with Dave calling out an online source's research methods for bone picking. There's tears, there's violence, there's racquet smashing and that's before we even started recording. The origin of not letting the bed bugs bite is discussed and once again Numble the Meat Teletubby makes an appearance to haunt all of our nightmares, and this time he's lost his skin on Contiki.

Goat pageants, corn-shephards and the stealing of a sacred goat (could be the follow up to The Killing of a Sacred Deer but it's not). What it is is a miscarriage of justice and one that has been passed down through the ages and now, it just means to annoy someone. But who stole that first goat and why? Plus Operation Mongoose and the failed attempt to overthrow communist cuba.
