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!

The numbers don't lie. The Latino community is on the rise in Annapolis and Anne Arundel County. And with elections on the horizon, they are positioned to make a big impact. This week, John and Tim speak with Walter Vasquez who is the "Godfather" for the Hispanic community in Annapolis and the proprietor of the Sin Fronteras restaurant.

Walter talks about his history, the upcoming Mayoral race and who the Hispanic community might support and why; and the proposed, ever-polarizing Crystal Spring development in Annapolis. 

This episode ought to open your eyes a little bit!

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!
