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!

It's been an exciting 18 weeks for The Maryland Crabs. In September we launched after years of hemming and hawing. And in that time, we opined, formed our conspiracy theories, chatted with police chiefs, legislators, and even the Governor. 

We solved nothing. But hopefully, it made you think!

Next year, there is a LOT more on tap as we continue to grow and expand across Maryland. In the next few weeks, we will be speaking with Anne Arundel County State's Attorney Wes Adams about our heroin epidemic and more. And, we have some surprise guests in store along with a significant expansion later in the year!

In this episode, we discuss and rehash all that. Where we succeeded, where we failed; and why John blew off the first live podcast at the Ebb Tide.

But we need your help!  Please let us know what is important to you.  Give us an email with your thoughts...tweet at us...Facebook us....if you see us driving on the road, swerve into us and we can talk while the police shut down the road.

And most importantly, THANK YOU!  We have seen our listener base grow incredibly over these few short weeks and now are reaching over 1000 people per episode the three weeks following release. We appreciate it and certainly encourage you to share the podcast with your friends and to subscribe on iTunes or Google Play and give us a rating!


Have you listened to all of our previous episodes? You really should. They could change your life. Granted, your life would have to be pretty bad. But still, we have some gems you will want to check out!  Most recently....

  • Governor Larry Hogan invited us into his private office for Jaegerbombs and wings while we watched the Ravens.  OK, so maybe it was more of a conversation with the State Police watching over us making sure we did not swipe the guitar off his office wall...but we did have a great conversation.
  • Speaker of the House of Delegates, Michael E. Busch sat down and discussed the upcoming session, legislating in a Trump presidency and what it means for Maryland,  and his recent criticism of Delegate Herb McMillan.
  • Annapolis Police Chief Michael Pristoop lets us know what he is doing to combat the apparent crime wave in Annapolis. No one is more upset than he is!

Oh hell...just go back and listen to the ones you have not heard!  And PLEASE be sure to tell your friends about us!

Better yet, go to iTunes or Google Play and subscribe to our podcast and have them automatically delivered to your phone every time there is a new episode.

And coming up next week....we will figure it out between now and then so stay tuned and have a Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah!
