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!

In this episode of The Maryland Crabs, John and Tim, drink a few beers and crab about doing business in the City of Annapolis. They are joined by man-about-town and former president of the Annapolis Business Association, Sean O'Neill. How tough is it to open or operate a business in town? Are business owners on their own when it comes to cutting through the red tape? Does Tim start to slur towards the end of the podcast? We tackle all these questions and more in this episode of The Maryland Crabs.

Be sure to go back to listen to our prior episodes on crime in Annapolis. 

A shout out to The Ebb Tide for letting us hang out with some burgers and some beers afterwards.
