The Boys from Red Maryland Come to Town (E-110)

It’s the clash of podcasts! What happens when you put the Righty Tighties of Red Maryland in the same room as the Lefty Loosies of The Maryland Crabs? The knives come out. Well, not exactly. It turns out that when you put four guys who all love the sound of their own voices together in the same room, they actually have a really good time. And you get a really long episode.

Brian Griffiths and Greg Kline of Red Maryland run a media empire consisting of an unapologetically right-leaning website, blog, and podcast in the bluest of blue states. They launched Maryland Podcast Month back in May to promote local podcasts and John and Tim wisely decided to ride their coattails, and a relationship grew from there. They are all now best friends and will most likely backpack across Europe together this summer. But we’ll probably drive. Which is faster and easier.

Everything You Never Knew About the Annapolis Maritime Museum & Park (E-109)

Your kids may know it from a field trip. You may know it from Eastport A Rockin’ (depending on how good a time you had). It was notoriously it was flooded during Isabel in 2003. They host some kick-ass weddings. Free concerts– the Tides and Tunes and Summer Sunset Series.

But we can guarantee there’s a bunch you never knew! This week, John sits down with Alice Estrada, the Executive Director of the Annapolis Maritime Museum to dig a little deeper into this Annapolis community gem!

CRABCAKE: brēth™- The plant-based air purifier | (September 2018)

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!

Tim gets to his gardening roots…pun intended…when he visits his old friend, Ray Greenstreet of Greenstreet Gardens in Lothian, Maryland. Tim was lured to the wilds of South County with the promise of the combination of his two favorite things…plants and gadgetry. Ray and his business partner are launching a Kickstarter campaign on Thursday, September 13th at noon to introduce brēth™, a cutting-edge technological and horticultural breakthrough that uses plants to actively clean ambient air! This product is the first of its kind and is going to redefine air purifiers. So, obviously, Tim was curious. And if you usually skip the links on the episode notes…don’t. Check it out:

Jimmy’s Famous Seafood Vs PETA (E-108)

What happens when a multi-national corporation with deep pockets tries to put a struggling industry out of business? Well, many would sit back and lament the loss; but John Minadakis from Jimmy’s Famous Seafood in Baltimore is a scrapper and survivor and he swung back. Hard!

PETA took aim at the crab industry and Jimmy’s Famous Seafood was having none of it. They employ too many people to let down. They contribute to so many charities. They have such a long and rich history in Baltimore. So, like any scrapper worth their weight, Jimmy’s swung back and is winning this war despite zero help or support from other local crab houses that are equally threatened.

Listen as we talk about Jimmy’s Famous Seafood and the history, the people, the contributions, and yes–the war on Peta with John Minadakis, one of the owners of Jimmy’s Famous Seafood.

And if you are not familiar with the war, this article is a good summary, but the real gold is in their Twitter feed.  Do yourself a favor, set aside 30 minutes to scroll back through it. And when you are done, head up to Holabird Avenue, give them a high-five and a hug and eat some tasty crabs. #GetFamous

PS: And if you are wondering who is behind the Twitter account…well, you are just going to have to wait and see. Jimmy’s, always looking for a way to give back, is working with Make-A-Wish to raise some money before they make the big reveal! Stay tuned.

Michael Hughes of MH Media Strategies…Hot Tequila Edition (E-107)

Michael Hughes is not just the marketing genius behind MH Media Strategies here in Annapolis, but he spent most of his life as a radio god with a Forrest Gump-like knack for brushes with music legends. From being served tea by Sir Paul McCartney to watching Stevie Ray Vaughn air-guitar in his living room to being flown to Germany by Roger Waters to watch the epic 1991 concert at the Berlin Wall, Michael has been sitting on a treasure trove of stories that he’s always been a bit reluctant to tell. That is, until Tim showed up at his office in Eastport one afternoon to coax those stories out, armed only with a bottle of hot tequila that had been sitting in his car all day during a heat wave. John took the day off to go to his anger management class, so there were no adults in the room to supervise this episode.
