Ever wondered how much you'd know without the help of the internet? How would you answer questions like 'who invented the high five' or 'what does OK stand for' without Googling? What if you had to work it out yourself? That's the game that We Fact Up plays - each episode we get asked questions by our listeners and attempt to work out the answers using only the power of conversation. The one rule - NO GOOGLING until the end. And have fun (ok that’s two rules, but you get what we’re saying).

Hosted by Dave Zwolenski, Redd Peterson and James 'Martine' Blake it's the comedy/fact podcast everyone can play.

    The final episode of We Fact Up - Coronavirus Special

    The final episode of We Fact Up - Coronavirus Special

    Today marks the final episode of We Fact Up. It's been a hilarious and fact-filled time spent meandering over some of the deepest of life's quandaries. We've pondered over how to parachute a pig from an airplane, whether ducks would make good fighting animals and if a squirrel is sexy to other squirrels (there were some other things in there too, but we forget most of them). Today is the day that Dave, Redd and Martine finally, after 5 years, conquered the internet. There are no more questions to answer. We have answered them all. 

    Thanks to everyone for your support, messages, likes, subscribes, reviews, questions and above all, your patience with three very stupid men. We have had the wildest and funniest time having these ridiculous conversations with each other and loved having you along for ride. We end the show with a smile, a laugh and an episode about all the plagues that have ruined things for people in the past, just like Corona has ruined our podcast. Please enjoy! 

    AND ONE FINAL THING - before you bury your face in your hands and cry snot filled blubber into the sleeves of your shirt... DO NOT FEAR! We do have something exciting planned. We Fact Up may be over, but there are bigger things in the works and will be revealed in due time. So stay subscribed to the show, stay smiling and stay fact! Because the fact will always be back baby.

    Christmas Special: What was the first official Olympic mascot?

    Christmas Special: What was the first official Olympic mascot?

    Is Martine pretending to be his girlfriend, or is she pretending to be him? We unpack this paradox and delve into Olympic History, debating just what the first Olympic Mascot would have been. And we prove, once and for all, that the We Fact Up Conversation System actually works! Sometimes. Merry Xmas from all of us here at We Fact Up.

    What was the Great Balloon Fiasco & opening umbrellas indoors?

    What was the Great Balloon Fiasco & opening umbrellas indoors?

    In 1986 something happened in Cleveland that went unnoticed, but it shook the earth to its core and changed the way we view balloons forever. And when you open an umbrella indoors people say it's bad luck but is that just because you might smash a vase, or are the reasons far deeper and more concerning?

Growing and wonderful

Being a host on a similar show, I am often looking for others like us. These three are great. They are obviously coming into their own, as it take all of us time to get there, but even from the start I was laughing at my headphones. The candor can get a bit over shot, but the humor remains, not to mention I get to learn a little something.

Thank you. Keep at it.

So much fun

This podcast is so funny and strangely informative. I found it by accident and have been hooked from the get go. Keep up the good work, guys.

Hilarious and Educational

Admittedly, I’m writing this review so I can submit a Tinder sentence recommendation. The show is hilarious though and the five stars are fully deserved.

Here goes my suggestion:
“I don’t have a foot fetish, per se, but please wear sandals (thongs?) for our first meeting.”
