Today is the day that Dave, Redd and Martine finally, after 5 years, conquered the internet. There are no more...

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?  See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

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).

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"?
