ep 4: Fan Theories

This week Kelly has trawled the depths of fan theory message boards and has delivered a net full of flimsy connections, shaky reasoning, and soggy literary criticism for Mary and Andrew to pick apart. How many portmanteau categories will we Frankenstein together? When will our Oracles start loosely interchanging slightly overzealous media fans with conspiracy theorists?  Will this podcast once again trigger Dave Coulier’s Google Alert on himself?

SPOILERS: too many, very early on, and most definitely.
