Ayodhya verdict special

Suicide helpline, Sex emojis, Hater love

The lads succumb to listener pressure and do a sex-special for their 69th episode. Let’s keep it juvenile, why not! First off they encounter the hilarious and thankfully incident-free story of the American college that misprinted a sex hotline number instead of a suicide helpline number. Followed by Facebook’s new policy on the eggplant and peach emoji use. Lastly, the lads muscle up and take on the haters, but give it back with a little love. Hate the game not the playa, playa.

Underwear sales, Foreign medical degrees, Man brews beer in stomach

The lads turn business analysts this week and try to crack open the mystery of falling underwear sales in India. Next, they train their eyes on the story about returning Indian students with foreign medical degrees and what it is that makes them not work in India. And lastly, the sad but entertaining story of a man who could not stop producing beer in his gut - using nothing, but the carbs in his food.

UN Deficit, Bigg boss ban, Male breast-causing pill

Actor’s stolen awards, Gandhi’s mortal remains, Saudi Arabia tourism

This week takes the lads on a speculative journey that loosely revolves around theft. What starts in Mumbai at an actor’s home ends in Bhopal at a trust that used to house Bapu’s mortal remains. This is quickly followed by the problem-solving, passive-heroism that we so love them for. This week, their calling takes them to Saudi Arabia to help the languishing Saudi Arabian tourism industry.

Tetris challenge, PNB buffalo loan, Onion hoarders

The weekly quest to make sense of our world continues through juvenile analysis. The lads go deep into the Tetris challenge, and peel off layer after magical layer to arrive at the core truth of all internet behaviour. Next, they jump into the odd case of the CBI investigating a PNB officer for a Rs. 1 lakh bribe in connection with a buffalo loan. Lastly they put on their capes and go after evil onion hoarders in an attempt to save farmers and consumers alike. This is a job for Far From Fact. Whoosh! Off they go. Here’s a quick glance, if you want to know what the Tetris challenge looks like. http://tiny.cc/rhiqdz + Music credit - Simon D’Souza + Write to us - hello@farfromfact.in (mailto:hello@farfromfact.in) + Follow us https://www.instagram.com/farfromfact/

Ban on e-cigarettes, DGCA on Tik Tok, Fake Dawood gang member

Big news for e-cigarette fans. Let’s rephrase that, bad news for e-cigarette fans. That’s not the only ban this week though, the DGCA has banned cabin crew and pilots from making tik tok videos while at work. But first, the story of a Mumbai resident who got into a world of trouble for impersonating a Dawood Ibrahim gang member.

Fake 81-year old, frog marriage, Pakistani investor conference. Feat. Naalayak

The lengths some people would go, to achieve their goals. In the case of a young man from Ahmedabad, it was his desperation to migrate to the US, for people in MP it was pleasing the rain Gods, and for one Pakistani Minister it was attracting foreign investment. Catch the lads as they LOL these sitting ducks and try and make some sense of the crazies. Also featured on this episode is banging indie band Naalayak, with their single Meri Kahani.
