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 sounds a bit like a device you might see advertised on late night television-- Lifeline 100.  Might even be a new hospital reality show. But it is anything but that.

Now in its sixth year, Lifeline 100 is the brainchild of Bike AAA and Anne Arundel County Recreation and Parks Department. It is a 100 mile bike ride that covers all corners of the county. But for those (me) not even close to being in shape to ride 100 miles, there are shorter routes--60 miles, 30 miles, 15 miles, and for the kids a bike rodeo! It is a fundraiser for several non-profits and many local businesses get in on the game. It all get started at Kinder Farm Park on Sunday, October 6th!

We talked with Colleen Joseph from the Recreation and Parks Department and get the scoop. 

Looking to ride with a group?  Join ours!  Send me an email message at  We're doing the ALL TRAIL 30 mile ride and likely the additional 10 mile BWI trail for a total of 40. Start about 8am, guaranteed to be having beers by 1pm. Join us on Sunday, October 67th for Lifeline 100?
