Episode 91 of Snakes and the Fatman with an EXCLUSIVE interview with Joy and Justin Kobylka! We sit down and quickly realize that Joy is the heartbeat of the Kobylka family and how Kinova would be very different without her…Oh and for all you fanboys out there.. Relax… Justin will be there too… but we quickly regulate him to the background. Boom…Only SATFM can roll like that!
 
As if that’s not enough… We have a brand new 15 Minutes of Lame with the always beautiful, always charming, Holly Russell of Texoma Exotics!

Episode 83 has dropped and it’s a good one.  Steven Kush of Rep.Tek and Cold Blooded Café sits down with me to talk some sh#t…  Twenty-one year old kid that knows more about more than some keepers who’ve been in the game for 20 years.  Plus I rant on some jagoffs and list my 5 favorite Ball Python genes… well… almost.

Not only that. But we’re giving Canada another chance to prove they’re all not full of sh#t, we got Mr. Foster Baillie of Genetic Intuition on a brand new 15 Minutes of Lame!

Episode 81 – Possibly the most positive, spiritual, inspirational show that we’ve ever done here.  You meet a guy like this MAYBE once every ten years.  Socrates of Ari Elli Max Arboreals is easily my person of the year… yep… lil’ bit of a man-crush goin’ on here.  You know someone is unique when he could inspire the Fatman like this guy did.  Easily one of my top three interviews in the six year history of the show.  I promise you won’t be disappointed in this one.

Plus, on a brand new 15 Minutes of Lame, Adam Clear of @benevolentreptiles makes his debut and you have to hear the story that got him a spot on the show!

Episode 79 is out now and it was a F’N BLAST.  All the triggers are discussed on this show… Nido Witch Hunts, Trans and Gay People not being accepted in the community, Victim Mentality, and all thru the lens of one old Eye Talian and one slightly younger Eye Talian Mix.  We get a lil bit Chicago, a little bit New York and a whole lot of aggravated with PC and Cancel Culture.  Oh, I didn’t mention this earlier but Mike also breeds some of the best monitors in the country!

We also have Caleb Howell from Caleb’s Exotics and More on this week’s brand new 15 Minutes of Lame… so I mean… that might bring the show down a lil, but hey, they can’t all be home-runs.
