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!

Baltimore crime is on the increase and so are the pressures of police Commissioner Kevin Davis. In the wake of the Baltimore City riots of 2015 and the death of Freddie Gray, getting a handle on crime is no easy task. Commissioner Davis came into Anne Arundel County to clean up after former County Executive John Leopold was forced to resign; and now he is trying to work his magic in Baltimore. Listen in as we speak with The Commish from his office on the top-floor of Baltimore City Police Headquarters.

And if you get a chance, check out the fascinating Baltimore City Police Museum. We did. It's VERY cool. Just opened. But, limited hours!


Today's nourishment... R House. A food incubator/markethouse/something else that is hard to describe in the Remington neighborhood. Free and easy parking. Incredible food. Great vibe. Check it out.  Hey Annapolis--you can learn a thing or two!

A thank you to Chief TJ Smith for making this all happen!

Coming up....former County Executive John R. Leopold, Baltimore County Executive and Gubernatorial Candidate Kevin Kamenetz,  Maryland State Delegate Nic Kipke (if he will ever return my email), Heather Mizeur, Delegate Herb McMillan, the new Mayor of Annapolis, and a few more surprises!

And hey, check out the Eye On Annapolis Daily News Brief!  10 minutes every day at noon will bring you up to speed on all the LOCAL issues, sports, weather, events and opinions in Annapolis and  Anne Arundel County.  Here's your link...
