It's the final episode of our three-part For Fact's Sake series on elections.

This week, we are looking at the biggest vote taking place in this election year: India.

Ali and Paul spoke to Jency Jacob, the managing editor of BOOM, a fact checking organisation based in India and also covering Myanmar and Bangladesh.

He explained the difficulties of fact-checking in an election that covers a billion potential voters, and the types of misinformation that voters in India encounter.

We also have the second of our Conspiracy Dictionary segment, where Ali and Paul discuss chemtrails.
