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!

There aren't many people a politician will not speak with. P. Kenneth Burns, a reporter for WYRP is one of them. We have him fresh off his dustup with Baltimore Mayor, Stephanie Rawlings Blake.

This time around, Tim, John, and Ken...or Kenny crab about his latest press conference kerfuffle, Baltimore politics, national politics, and how the media intersects with all of them. We talk Hogan, Blake, Senator Barb, and a guy to watch -- Brandon Scott.

Get some insight on the political pulse in Maryland with a reporter that has been plying this beat for years!


Hey, did you hear last week's episode with Walter Vasquez. We crabbed about the growth of the Latino population in the area and the impact it will have on the upcoming local elections.  We also figured out how that community really feels about the Crystal Spring development in Annapolis.

Did you get a chance to listen to Sean O'Neill talking about the business climate in Annapolis? Or the one where we crab about the incompetence of HACA, parking in Annapolis, and the overreach of the Historic Preservation Commission? Check them out!


Nourishment this week was provided post interview, by the Annapolis Smokehouse and Tavern -- a place you need to go to if you have not been. House-made potatoe chips are on point and make your heart hurt; but you only live once! 


Here are links to some of the stuff we discussed. Got more…send us an email at
