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 started this podcast 52 episodes ago, so it should be a year...but it isn't. Math is hard. But it IS our 52nd episode and we wanted to do something different!

We brought in Cara McKenrick from Annapolis Fork and Lea Hurt who is a restaurant and chef PR maven and decided to talk about the Annapolis food scene. We talked the good, the bad, and the ugly. It is unvarnished, raw, and more than anything--real!

We rated 19 restaurants in the area and discussed a bunch more. The results may surprise you--some favorites scored pretty low and there are some surprises along the way! For the full list of restaurants and rating criteria, visit our website--

Special thanks to METROPOLITAN KITCHEN & LOUNGE for the table and electricity. And to Brenda our server who made sure our glasses were never empty!

Coming up....former County Executive John R. Leopold, County Executive Steve Schuh, the last full interviews with Mayoral candidates in Annapolis before the primary election, and a surprise or two!
