Conspiracy Cuties - JFK is DEAD!?

Instead of WEPA this week, we’re giving you a treat of our favorite fun new series, Conspiracy Cuties. The boys dive deep into conspiracy theories in a real cute way, yaaasss! All the rest of these can be heard at http://patreon.com/bayridgeboys 

Yannis Pappas and Chris Distefano are talking about a very old conspiracy that to this day no one knows the true answer to: Who killed JFK? Did the Mob kill JFK? November 23rd, 1963 President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas during a presidential motorcade. 

Chris had the chance to speak to Secret Service Clint Hill on Opie and Anthony show and heard his WILD side of the story.  

Clint Hill and most do not believe that the shot did not come from the Texas School Book Depository Library in by Lee Harvey Oswald. First because Oswald was a squeak and such a shot would need to be done by a trained professional with a certain gun. 

Was his brother, Robert Kennedy the real target? Did the teamsters leader Jimmy Hoffa order the hit? Was Cuba involved? 

Tell us your thoughts in the comments!!


Like everyone else we know nothing. Reality is a suggestion. This is all hypothetical. If you take this seriously, please seek medical attention. NOW LETS GET WILD!

Jerry Seinfeld VS James Altucher a battle for the ages!

The guys go wild with Altucher where you’ll think it’s another episode of Conspiracy Cuties! In this crazy reality the guys say to just go extreme and see what happens? Kanye for President, reparations, Nancy Pelosi to cure Air Aids, and with unemployment everyone should get the hottest job out there: be a stand up comedian.

Reality is a suggestion but make no mistake the boys don’t hold back. Tell us your favorite part of the ep so we can CLIP IT!!
