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!

We all have bucket lists. Tim wants to find proper New York pizza in Maryland. John would love to find a podcasting partner who isn't allergic to work. We can all dream. But "100 Things to Do in Annapolis and the Eastern Shore Before You Die" by Susan Moynihan is the ultimate Maryland bucket list!

Susan moved to Annapolis when she was 13, and her best coming-of-age memories are here. She moved to NYC after college, but Annapolis was always home, albeit for shorter bits of time: Christmas break, two weeks in summer, spring or fall weekends as work and life allowed. 

In 2018 she moved back to Annapolis, and found her hometown familiar, but different. She wanted to get to know it on a deeper level, so she went to her go-to: writing. She spent six months researching this book, driving all over Annapolis and the Eastern Shore, talking to old friends and making new ones, revisiting longtime favorites and searching out surprises.
