I was given a clip that's 29.93 fps embedded. There's no timeline in premiere that will support this so I get lip sync issues the further down the clip I am. 

 

Has anyone ever heard of this fps before? Is it even fixable?

Yes, it's variable frame rate. It's best to convert that to constant frame rate using something like the free Shutter Encoder.

 

Variable frame rate files are what typically cause that problem. Use Shutter Encoder to convert the files (before editing) to constant frame rate. Try ProRes LT or even PR PROXY format within Shutter Encoder for easy to edit formats with 'better' files size.

That is undoubtedly variable framerate media, VFR, and that is the "overall" relative framerate. However that stuff varies the framerate continuously to save writing data to disc.

 

You could install the free ffmpeg front-end app ShutterEncoder, and convert that correctly to CFR, constant frame rate media. Then use that new clip.
