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 week we speak with Natanya Levioff who is the local Race Director for the 911 Heroes Run on September 17th at the Navy Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis. She is also a long-time volunteer with the Travis Manion Foundation.

Natanya gives us the history of Travis Manion, his friend Brendan Looney and how they came to be buried side by side in Arlington. We talk about the growth of the foundation and all that it does for our veterans and active duty service members. And we even discuss fire departments. From Travis' visit to Rescue 1 of the FDNY and our own Annapolis Volunteer Fire Department and their memorial garden.  If not me...then who?
