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!

This is a Crabcake from The Maryland Crabs!  What is a Crabcake? Well, it's a very short snippet of something you need to know. It might be 5 minutes long..or it might be 20.  In any event, enjoy your Maryland Crabcake!


When filmmaker Will Lautzenheiser's limbs are amputated due to a bacterial infection, his life is derailed and he turns to stand-up comedy (or sit-down comedy) as therapy. He learns to adapt through the power of his spirit, sense of humor, and his guardian "Angel." Will becomes a candidate for an experimental limb transplant and undergoes the surgery for a double-arm transplant in the hope of regaining his independence--and once again being able to hug his family and friends!

In this Crabcake, we speak with director, Robin Berghaus from her office in Austin, TX. This is Berghaus's first feature film and we discuss the plotline and the story surrounding Will and her empathy to tell the story.  We talk about Robin's background and what it was like working with Will to bring his story to life. We also chat a bit about the resistance she felt being a female director in a male dominated world. SPOILER: None!

Yet another fascinating film for me and I have marked it on my list of must see movies.
