Chris Cubed… Usually the three Chris’ on this podcast would be labeled as round… but in this case…  Bad joke… didn’t land.  I apologize. 

Anyway, Episode 55 is in the books where I actually get to talk to and hang with Chris Salemi from the Bronx Zoo.  Let me repeat that…  A wild animal keeper from the Bronx F#ckin’ Zoo said yes to being on this dumb podcast.  Chris works with Lions, Tigers and Bears Oh My but then adds some Godd#mn Gorillas to the mix too.  This dude is a legit bad ass from the Bronx which surprises me cause I didn’t think there were any left.  And he keeps all types of Australian Pythons as well!

You wanna talk sexy… Chris Sexton from Heliguy Serpents is on 15 Minutes of Lame this week.

Hope you guys seriously love this one cause we had a great time recording it.

One of the best things about doing this show is every now and then… you get to meet a guy like Warren Booth.  PhD… Geneticist… Rare reptile keeper… US Ark Board Member… F#ckin’ Rockstar. This was probably my favorite non-ball python interview that I’ve ever done and is easily in my top 3 of all time.

With John Wilder of Wilder Ball Pythons on 15 Minutes of Lame, this show unexpectedly turned into a nice guy episode… so of course I had to be a bit of a douche to offset the 2 nice guys on the show and I probably complain more than usual.  But only to offset!   

Apr 1, 2021

Episode 51 is in the books with Mike Wilbanks of Wilbanks Captive Bred Reptiles. Had a great time with my old friend talking about the nosedive that the scaleless project took, the Stranger vs. Mahogany debate and what's its like to hatch an insane amounts of clutches every year.

Also, on 15 Minutes of Lame, we have Christopher Ward of the Reptile Ward up in Canada!

I was tired of getting #metoo’d and slut shamed so I brought the PD himself on the show to set the record straight!  I had a great time with Justin Kobylka this episode and we got into some things that normally aren’t talked about and we get into the weeds on the biz, the pandemic, gene comparisons, and old school vs new school perceptions.  Josh Strange from Strange Kreations on 15 Minutes of Lame and new music from Fuzz Huzzi.
