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 95: Where did 'A Bone to Pick' originate & bed bugs biting?

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.

Past Episodes

Know your memes? Well you'll be delighted to know that our very own Martine AJA James AKA Blakey was once a well-known meme known as "weird kid in the tram shirt" and on this episode he divulges all the sordid details on how it came to pass. From being discovered by TheFatJewish Instagram account, to becoming huge in Italy and shared on every meme site from here to the USA, Martine's Meme days are something to behold. Also where did Pie in the Sky kick off and how much pie is in the sky anyway?

When Christian Hull comes to play things go south very quickly! Kyle Sandilands' new tv show Trial by Kyle is discussed, we respond to our first ever Facebook Q&A (without the A) and we debate whether Dean Cain was in the classic 90's TV show "Sliders". Not to mention we learn where jackpot originated and what the Salem Tomato Trials were. ENJOY!

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.

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"?

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.
00:39:00 8/6/2018
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.
00:36:00 7/30/2018
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?
00:34:00 7/16/2018
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.
00:28:00 7/11/2018
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.
