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!

Annapolis has a thriving arts community. It might be music, sculpture, painting, performance art, woodworking, or instructing. June 1st through 8th is your chance to dive into it all!  It is Annapolis Arts Week!

From plein air painters on the streets, to musicians on the stage, to muralists on the sides of buildings. From student exhibitions to those of renowned artists. From Maryland Hall to the Annapolis Maritime Museum & Park to Prism to the Annapolis Towne Centre. First Sunday Arts Festival, Dinner Under the Stars...Annapolis will come alive from June 1 through 8 at the Third Annual Annapolis Arts Week.

This week, we speak with the director of Annapolis Arts Week, Darin Gilliam; Elizabeth Ramierez who is the president of the Annapolis Arts Alliance; and Anthony Henry who is the new GM at the Annapolis Towne Centre which has embraced it as they re-vision the popular shopping district.

Have a listen first, and then go explore Annapolis' arts scene the first week of June.
