The Maryland Crabs 2016 Recap; and a Peek Into 2017 (E-18)

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!

  • 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!

Come Drink With The Crabs

The Maryland Crabs are going on the road. It’s a short road.

Crabs Ebb Tide

On Tuesday, December 27th, we will be setting up our mics at the world-famous Ebb Tide on Bay Ridge Road in Annapolis.  Yes, at 7pm, we will have two cheap beers on the table and an open seat just for you.

Sit down, pull up the mic and tell us whatever is on your mind. If you need some help, we will have several random “topic” cards that you can select.  No need to give your name; just come out and give us your two cents!

We will only have space for an hour’s worth of comments, so it will be first come, first served.

Will we see you there?  We hope so!

MD Governor Larry Hogan: Road Kill, Sick Leave and Just How He Manages the Job (E-17)

Larry Hogan is Maryland’s 62nd Governor with some “through the roof” approval ratings. He figured we could not do too much damage and agreed to sit down and crab with us a for a bit.

We discussed his 2017 plans–BOOST, paid sick leave and the Road Kill Bill. We talked about President-Elect Trump, and what is on his Netflix queue. Spoiler: he has YET to see House of Cards.
All in all, this is an insightful look into the Governor who took the electorate and the legislature by surprise by defeating sitting Lt. Governor Anthony Brown!

Speaker Michael Busch – Maryland in a Trump World…and More! (E-16)

Michael Busch is the Speaker of the Maryland House of Delegates and is one of the longest serving Delegates and has been the Speaker for the past 13 years.  The man knows Maryland!

This week the Crabs go on the road and talk to Speaker Busch in the Speaker’s Lounge in the Annapolis State House. As always, we have no set agenda and the conversation ran from “what the hell does a Trump presidency mean for Maryland?” to gerrymandering, to the rising stars in Maryland politics, and exactly why Delegate Herb McMillan was banned from the Governor’s Mansion. Check it out and see what one of Maryland’s top politicos has to say on The Maryland Crabs!
