I cant believe I waited this long to have Albey Scholl on the show.  This guy is one of the most bad a$$ old schoolers I’ve spoken with in a long f#ckin’ time.  I can call him an old schooler because he was producing geckos in 19 f#ckin 72.  A full year before the Fatman was even born.  He’s shared the stage with Stevie Ray Vaughn and at least half a dozen other blues legends.  He might even make a living doin’ what a bunch of you are trying to do… selling ball pythons.  Hey, two out of three ain’t bad.  

Also on a new 15 Minutes of Lame, Jarome Hollon is crushing it out in CA!

Listen to it now on Spotify, iTunes, and wherever great podcasts reside. Or you could listen to it at www.snakesandthefatman.com

Thanks in advance for listening!

Remember, the 2021 15 Minutes of Lame Contest is open now at snakesandthefatman.com!  Go vote for your favorite up and coming breeder!

Episode 65 is out! Robyn Markland has definitely carved out a status among legends in the herp world by co-founding some of the most influential companies of the last 25 years. From Pro-Exotics to Ship Your Reptiles to The Reptile Report to Redline Science... this guy has forgotten more stories than we probably remember. Sit down with us as we take a trip down memory lane, discuss the new breed of keepers, and talk about his new disruptive company, Redline Science.

Also Paul Taylor of Snake Road Constrictors joins us for a new 15 Minutes of Lame and we talk a little about the Morph Market DDoS attack last week!

Thanks in advance for listening!

I’ve known Crazy Ray Tabano for 25 years and even after 25 years I still love  just sitting down with this guy and listening to stories about the early days of Aerosmith and the legends that he had the chance to share the stage with.  Ray is an amazing storyteller and someone I’m proud to say is my friend.  This episode is a little different… not much snake talk but plenty of Rock N’ Roll history talk.

Not only that but I get to sit down with another Texas legend… Mr. James Durling of Yellow Rose Exotics  hocks his wares on 15 Minutes of Lame.

Two f#ckin’ great people on one amazing show.  Snakes and the Fatman Episode 61 is now up and running on Spotify, iTunes, and wherever incredible podcasts are found.  Or you could just listen to it on www.snakesandthefatman.com
