CRABCAKE: Is An Electric Vehicle In Your Future? (September 2019)

Transportation is changing. We are hearing talks about autonomous vehicles fifty years down the road; but in the here and now, we have electric vehicles.

Elvia Thompson the founder of Annapolis Green joins us with Divesh Gupta who is the Director of Strategy | Utility of the Future for BGE.

Annapolis Green is bringing more than 70 electric vehicles to City Dock in Annapolis on June 14th for the 7th Annual Electric Vehicle Showcase.  This is your chance to kick the tires and batteries of today’s electric vehicles. Chat up the owners and get all those doubts out of your head!

There will be sport cars, family cars, motorcycles, police cars and even a bus from BGE.

And speaking of BGE, Divesh discusses the newest initiative from BGE–installing 500 charging stations in their service area. The first one was just installed last week at the Pip Moyer Recreation Center right here in Annapolis.

Have a listen. See how easy (and affordable) owning an electric vehicle can be, and then make sure you head on down to the Annapolis City Dock on June 14th from 11am to 5pm!

CRABCAKE: Annapolitan Jacob Landis pays forward his gift of hearing (September 2019)

For a moment, imagine that you are hearing the phone ring and dreading another telemarketer call.  Now imagine that same phone ringing tomorrow–but you cannot hear it!

That happened to Annapolis resident, Jacob Landis, at age 9. With no answers as to why he went deaf, his family embarked on a journey that ended with Jacob betting a cochlear implant to regain his hearing.

But Jacob’s journey continued. He wanted to give this gift to others and six years ago embarked on a fund raising bike ride to all MLB stadiums to raise money for implants for others. He raised $180,000.

But his journey continues today. After three more cross country rides, Jacob and his foundation, Jacob’s Ride have funded cochlear implants for 16 individuals. But there are 12 on the waiting list and he can use your help.

You can share his story. You can attend the Celebration by the Bay on September 21st, or you can simply donate.  Imagine how beautiful the sound of a telemarketer calling truly is.

Please listen as we speak with Jacob (and for a minute, his father Randy) about his loss of hearing and how a kid from Admiral Heights is making a difference in the lives of many!

CRABCAKE: John Shields…the culinary ambassador of the Chesapeake Bay (September 2019)

Today, we present a crabcake with a guy who REALLY knows his crabcakes… John Shields, who is been called the “Culinary Ambassador of the Chesapeake Bay.” Aside from being the owner of Gertrude’s Chesapeake Kitchen at the Baltimore Museum of Art, John has written multiple cookbooks on the cuisine of the Chesapeake region. The host of PBS’s “Chesapeake Bay Cooking” and “Coastal Cooking with John Shields”, his work has appeared in The New York Times, the Washington Post, Coastal Living, and Southern Living. He is a frequent guest on WYPR radio, local TV and at public events.

John’s newest book, The New Chesapeake Kitchen was released in October, 2018. Here, John’s decades of exploring and championing the Chesapeake region are presented in a volume that articulates his essential philosophy, as well as his commitment to, and love for the Chesapeake—its land and waters, its people, its history, and its food traditions.

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.
