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!

"The Election" is almost here. This week, Tim and John crab on the political scene--nationally, state-wide, and on a county level with some unique insight and perspective on one of the most important races on the ballot!

Hillary or Donald. Van Hollen or Szeliga. McCormack, Schaeffer, Vitale, Barber, or Klavans. And what about those ballot questions? We have all your answers (or not) and insight to how we are personally voting!

Hey, did you hear last week's episode with Kenny Burns? We talked about the media and their influence in politics, and what he did to piss off Baltimore Mayor, Stephanie Rawlings Blake to get him booted from her press conferences!  And then we had lunch at the Annapolis Smokehouse!

Other hot topics.... our talk with Walter Vasquez about the burgeoning Latino population in Annapolis and Anne Arundel County...the state of the business community with Sean O'Neil, and of course the whole crime issue in Annapolis and public housing!

Check them out!


Nourishment this week was nothing!  Zip. Nada! We recorded it and had to get onto other stuff, so we left hungry and..well crabby.  But next week, we are talking to a brand spanking new Mayoral candidate and will be lunching at one of our favorite local cafes-- 49 West! Stay tuned!


Here are links to some of the stuff we discussed. Got more…send us an email at
