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!

Rock Toews had a very successful online bookselling operation in Eastport for years. And then, in the midst of a recession, he thought it'd be a great idea to open a retail store!  So he did!  And has never looked back. We thought this seemed a little backward, so we talked about it.

We talked about the move from...

Take two aspirin and call me in the morning. That used to be the SOP for a concussion. That, or just walk it off. But no more. With each passing sports season we hear more and more about concussions and the long term danger they can cause.

If you have a child athlete, this is an episode you will want to hear as we...
