Episode 60 is up and running where Dr. Travis Wyman takes us to school on genetic testing, US Ark memberships, and the aggravation of attention seeking hot keepers on the ol’ YouTube. Plus, Til Valhalla/15 Minutes of Lame winner James Lewis of Simply Serpents and The Reptile Gumbo Podcast!
Absolutely motivational talk with Ball Python Royalty, Amad Osman of Ozzie Boids! Talking the snake business without really talking about snakes... Brilliant. As if that's not enough...
We start off with one of the Til Valhalla Project/Snakes and the Fatman winners Eileen Jarp of Bravo Zulu Ball Pythons!
Continuing the SATFM trend of having consistent, incredble people on the show.... Episode 57 is now in the books where we get to spend 15 Minutes with a Texas Legend, Mr. Chris McDougal of Snaekenstein Reptiles as well as the Return of Vudoo - Bob F#ckin' Vu of Bob's Balls in the main interview spot.
Easily this was the most fun I've had at a show in YEARS. It took 2 years for me to get out to a HERPS show and Shawn and Lori did not disappoint! Such a great time meeting and interviewing amazing people who are some of the nicest on the planet. Also, it's been one year since the ReptiChip guy, JT Tomlinson had his life changing house fire. Learn about what he's been up to and how he's rebuilding bigger and better than ever. I can't thank everyone in Texas enough for all of your hospitality. Can't wait til next time!
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.

You may ask yourself… isn’t that enough… but we say…No! We also have the absolutely stunning and brilliant rockstar Miri Sydney Burnish on 15 Minutes of Lame!

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!
Man... this one was a long time coming... Sean Bradley returns to shoot the Ball Sh!t with Snakes and the Fatman and as always, he does not disappoint. We talk about the early days of the reptile hobby, breeders nowardays and how and why Exotics by Nature morphed into Aquatics by Nature.
Also Jack and Heidi Dunlap of Southern Star Reptiles join us for 15 Minutes of Lame.

March 7 - Open Zoom Call for Reptile Breeders
Episode 47 is up and running with Garrett Hartle! Garrett’s tireless work on showing people the value of keeping and breeding Dwarf and Super Dwarf Reticulated Pythons is respected throughout the community and he’s just one of those guys that are just universally liked. It’s so nice to talk to people who keep different species and learning their perspective on them. I know you guys will love this one. Also, Jason Bigler from Morph Mixology Reptiles joins me for 15 Minutes of Lame. Great episode with some big announcements about the future of Snakes and the Fatman.
Wear a f#ckin mask.
Episode 46. Two f#cking hot shots… one awesome episode. Mike Brizzee of Brizzee Reptiles makes an appearance on 15 Minutes of Lame. Ryan McVeigh, head honcho at Zilla takes me to school on real world reptile keeping. I talk some Stranger vs Mahogany sh#t. This is honestly one of the better episodes lol… I guess putting out double the content might be making me a little better! Hope you guys like the episode!

Ending the season with a bang featuring the man, the myth, the legend… Dav Kaufman. I shoot the sh#t with Rockstar Jesus of the Herping world for our end of the year episode! John Fealy of Fealy’s Clutch brings the pain on his 15 Minutes of Lame and we talk about plans for the new year. The much anticipated “Best of 15 Minutes of Lame” contest will be starting on December 1st and will be open until December 21st. More info to come over the next 2 weeks so spend the Holidays “getting yo Fatman on” and make sure you check in every couple of days for new info!
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.
After a month away we’re coming back with a BANG and 2 NEW EPISODES THIS MONTH. Right out of the gate… the interview we’ve been trying to set up for over a year… the legend Chris Nettles from C Serpents. For 8 years we’ve been friends and this was one of the easiest interviews ever. This is one of the hardest working guys in the reptile business and his success proves it. Fuckin’ kick ass interview with a kick ass friend. Also we got another 15 Minutes of Lame with Paul McIntyre from Predator Park Reptiles… We’re not letting a late start hold us back and this is gonna be the best year ever for Snakes and the Fatman.
Merry Christmas to all the Fatman fans on Facebook and Instagram. This month we have Shawn Grey from HERPS as the main guest as well as Patrick MacKnight from Macknight Stables in our first ever breeder segmens… 15 Minutes of Lame! We talk about disrespectful assholes, new sponsors, new shit goin on for 2020 and of course we’ll bring the talk back around to reptiles every now and then. Stay safe during the holidays guys and girls and we’ll see ya on the other side of 2020. Enjoy the episode!
