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!

Former Anne Arundel County Executive John Leopold resigned his office after being convicted of misconduct in office after a torrid trial replete with accusations of infidelity and sexual trysts in parking lots. 

In his first interview since leaving office, Leopold opens up and lays it all out. His history, his accomplishments, his mistakes, and his future.

We talk about his time in office and how he hopes to regain the voter's trust as a Delegate in District 31-B.  And of course we talk about the trial and his conviction. We discuss the testimony, his medical records, and how his very own lawyer (who was also the General Counsel for the Maryland Democratic Party) threw him under the bus.

During this hour, he is contrite (and it seems very honest), and has a genuine desire to serve as an elected representative again. No easy task for politician convicted of misconduct.

After hearing this, I think many will consider pressing the re-set button on John Leopold and taking another look at him in a light that is significantly different than what you may have known before.
