The Magic of Lights on the Bay by the SPCA of Anne Arundel County (December 2019)

25 years and going strong!  Lights on the Bay–brought to you by the SPCA of Anne Arundel County.

We sat down with Kelly Brown who is the President and Executive Director for the SPCA of Anne Arundel County to talk about the magic that happens at Sandy Point State Park between Thanksgiving and New Years.

We rambled on about the history, what’s involved in setting it up, what to expect, and of course we talked about puppies, kittens and more!

Shawn Noratel, the Creative Director (and Co-Founder) of Liquified Creative, was also on hand and he is the brain behind the incredible ads you have seen and for the show. We talked a bit about Liquified and how they became one of the leading sponsors for Lights on the Bay, and really what drives them to get involved with so many area non-profits! (Spoiler: Stay tuned, we are working with Liquified Creative on a cool new project for 2020)

Have a listen:

Lights on the Bay is $20 per carload and there are a number of special nights and discount coupons out there–and we talk about all that as well.

Paula Poundstone…a comic legend returns (November 2019)

This is a Crabcake from The Maryland Crabs! What is a Crabcake? Well, it’s a very short snippet of something you need to know. It might be 5 minutes long..or it might be 20….we don’t have any kind of plan. In any event, enjoy your Maryland Crabcake!

Paula Poundstone is back for her annual December visit to Rams Head on Stage on December 6 for two shows. Tim and Paula chat about climate change, Facebook fights, the tense political climate, feisty daughters, passive-aggressive Thanksgiving attacks, and, of course, cats. Paula also cranks out a hilarious weekly podcast, No One Listens to Paula Poundstone and is a frequent panel guest on NPR’s Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me!

Links:

Thank you to Ann Alsina, principal at Covington-Alsina in Annapolis, for allowing Tim to take over your conference room for a couple of hours. And we apologize in advance, because he plans on making a habit out of it.

Maryland Health Benefit Exchange (November 2019)

This is a Crabcake from The Maryland Crabs! What is a Crabcake? Well, it’s a very short snippet of something you need to know. It might be 5 minutes long..or it might be 20. In any event, enjoy your Maryland Crabcake!

When it comes to health insurance, Tim is an idiot. In fact, let’s face it, a lot of people are. Everyone has a strong opinion about the Affordable Care Act, but few could actually explain what it means. That’s where the Maryland Health Benefit Exchange comes in. Tim sits down with Executive Director, Michelle Eberle, who patiently explains what the MHBE does and what it means to your healthcare as a Marylander.
