The Maryland Crabs is a podcast based in Annapolis Maryland which was launched in September 2016 after, quite literally years of hemming and hawing.  After a few false starts, many aborted concepts, we just took the plunge, whipped out the credit cards and lit Amazon on fire with equipment orders. And here we are!

This podcast is not about interviews. It’s about topics and conversations of interest to Marylanders!

We are not going to shy away from controversy or discomfort. Valuable conversations can emerge from them. We will not be adversarial for the sake of being adversarial, but you can expect some heated exchanges between Tim and John and Guests–or any combination of those.

About Guests–we're going to have plenty of them! Some will be local or regional in nature--others more broad.

And, we may even take this show on the road. Some night, you might find us propped on a bar stool at the Ebb Tide..or worse!

We're staring down the barrel of a new year, so The Maryland Crabs wax nostalgic and look back at 2017 to talk about our ten most-downloaded episodes. 

And, since it is the end of the year, John loosens the rules and lets Tim ramble on aimlessly about whatever random thought pops into his little head. We crab about

When he makes that call, Bob Mosier is a hero to 84,000 students, but the nemesis of parents who need to scramble.

But, as spokesperson for the Anne Arundel County Public Schools, it is a lot more than just making the call to cancel school for a snow day.

This week we talk about snow days, homeless students, the highs...
