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.


Ep 91: Why are crazy people called 'nuts' & to be stumped?

A rehab facility in USA is now using We Fact Up to help rehabilitate people with brain injuries. This is not a joke. We are as dumbfounded as the next person and to be honest, pretty honoured. In this episode we shout out to the wonderful people listening in the US and attempt to work out why we term people who are crazy 'nuts'. There's a lot of squirrel chat, obviously, and some pretty compelling arguments against nut-farming. Plus, why do we say "to be stumped"?

Past Episodes

When someone calls you the apple of their eye have they been struck down by inflammation of the cornea or are they complimenting you? And is humble pie really a pie or is it a teletubby that never quite made it. Plus we get a submission for the competition of Martine's Tindering dreams.

The internet is filled with cats doing amazing things, but none as amazing as a cat writing a physics paper and passing it off as his own. What inspired this clever kitty to pen a distinguished paper on the physical world and how come he isn't running the country? Also ever told someone to keep it quiet by saying "mums the word" well the origin of this one will change everything you thought you knew. And Dave tries to explain Schroedinger's Cat.

We have a competition running and the winner will get to write Martine's Tinder Profile for 1 week. Get on board and help him find the weird little family of his dreams. Also there was a pope in the 1400s who wrote erotica before he became a pope and that's something that needs to be examined, don't you think? Plus why would anyone invent the term 'Bees Knees' and how were they expecting that to be used in every day life?

Really hope PETA is listening to this one as there may be some serious advocating for pigs parachuting out of planes, which we of course would never condone, but it does make for some funny chat. Swine flu, war pigs, and how Redd would fair as the general in the war of the pigs are all up for discussion. Spoiler - he would not go well.

Kim Jong Un has been in the news a lot lately, and his fat little face is something we just can't get enough of, but the dictator may have gone too far when he stole The Great Barrier Reefs 5 Star Floating Hotel - fact or fiction, tune in to find out. And on this episode we have a very special surprise for the man behind the cans, Le Martini De Wee Man.

If you've got Buckley's chance, you've got nothing, nada, no possibility whatsoever of achieving your pre-determined goal. For example you could say Australia have Buckley's chance at making it through the world cup. But who was the original Buckley and why were their chances so slim? And if something's a cake walk is it a walk in the cake? No, most likely not, that's ridiculous, why would you think such things? Silly. What you will discover in this episode is just what a cakewalk is and how you too can enjoy one.

Somehow Amal Clooney became involved in our discussion of safe words in this week's episode, which no one saw coming. We also tried to figure out why they call it "caught red handed", what Will Smith's musical mate was called and what the hell the sly grog riot was all about. Was it Sylvester Stallone, was it a sneaky riot? Who knows. We do. Now. Take a listen.
00:31:00 6/13/2018
The Jim Crow laws have been hotly discussed lately with the release of Childish Gambinos video 'This Is America' and while we aren't qualified whatsoever to speak on the matter, we did have a red hot go of it. Plus a listener in British Columbia, Josh, may be in more serious trouble and we're only too happy to help get him out of the basement that he may or may not be kidnapped in.

Have you ever thought about where 'to go cold turkey' originated, because if not, you should. It's so weird! We give it our best shot ranging from a turkey trying to quit cigarettes and the country Turkey losing power. We also put the spotlight on the boycott and discover its strange origins. Plus Martine's Tinder Facting continues. Find out all the answers by listening to the show!

Endangered and tasty, these delightfully bent fruits are God's gift to humanity, but why did God choose to give them that perfect little bend in them that makes it fit so snug in your hands (and mouth. And possibly other areas)? We go to all corners of our minds, including the Kirk Cameron corner, to find the answers. Plus, looking to make friends, well we give you the BEST conversation starter to help 'break the ice' yourself. It'll change your life! Oh and will Martine find love on Tinder.... let's see.
