Jeff talks to Patrick Cassels about their favorite pop culture conspiracy theories like Rebecca Black's song "Friday" being a metaphor for the JFK assassination, an arcade game called Polybius being a psychological weapon, and Taylor Swift being an active member of 4chan.

"The reason I'm skeptical, is that the song's popularity seems like such luck and a random occurrence. I'd be more impressed if they made Rebecca Black and Friday really popular than they got a codified message into a song. Even the Illuminati couldn't have pulled that off." [...]
