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!

As we head into an contested primary for the office of Mayor of the City of Annapolis, we thought it would be a good idea to talk to all of the candidates in depth about their vision and see if we can find out what makes them tick.  Up this week, Nevin Young who is running as a Republican for Mayor and who will face the current officeholder, Mayor Michael Pantelides in the primary election on September 19th.

In other election related news...

  • If you have not listened to the candidates running for Alderman in your ward, we spoke to 17 of the 18 running (Ward 1's Larry Claussen never returned any calls or emails) we have a single post with all of the interviews, you can pick and choose...or listen to them all! [LINK]
  • If you were unable to get a ticket to the Maryland Crabs and Eye On Annapolis Mayoral Forum in June. We do have the audio for you on that as well. The forum was designed to get a basic look at the four candidates running for Mayor. [LINK]
  • And finally, we have a survey.  It is anonymous, so if you don't mind, please take about 45 seconds and let us know your inklings on the upcoming election. [LINK]

Coming up....former County Executive John R. Leopold, County Executive Steve Schuh, Mayor Michael Pantelides, Senator John Astle, and a surprise or two!
