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!

Crime is at an all-time high in Annapolis...or is it? Perception and statistics rarely align and Chief Pristoop joins the Crabs to muddle through both. From cameras to staffing and patrols to public housing, and how he's going to spend the $1.25 million Christmas gift promised to him by the mayor, no subject is...

Anne Arundel County, Maryland is an odd place. Some things make so much sense, and then...well, others not so much.

This week, District 6 Councilman, Chris Trumbauer talks to the crabs about a common sense bill that he proposed that was shot down like a flaming jug of Round-Up! He proposed that the county limit the...
