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!

It happens every year...well at least for the past seven years! The Annapolis Film Festival is bringing more than 70 films to Annapolis March 21st to 24th and we sat down with the founders once again to see what was in store for their seventh go around of this fantastic event that has brought millions to the area economy!

Tchaico Omawale is the writer, producer, and director of Solace. We spoke a little bit about the film and how real the characters are, the struggles they face and how they mimic some of her own as she was growing up as the child of a UN employee living across the globe. Solace is about a 17-year old girl, Sole, who is sent to live with her grandmother after her father's death. The relationship is toxic and the film examines the struggles between the two as Sole tries to find her way and her crew. It has been banded as a coming of age movie, but deep down, this is so much more!  Omawale will be present at the screening and will be hosting a Q&A afterwards!

Solace screens at 2:45pm on Sunday, March 24, 2019 at  St. Johns College Key Auditorium!

And when you are done listening to this--go buy your passes and mark your calendars for the Annapolis Film Festival 2019!
