Crime, Heroin, and Justice in Maryland? State’s Attorney Wes Adams Weighs In (E-20)

This week, The Maryland Crabs visit the courthouse to speak with State’s Attorney (for Anne Arundel County), Wes Adams. We remain un-indicted.

In this episode, we delve into the heroin problem that is impacting the state and what is being done to combat it. We talk a bit about the judicial system and how Anne Arundel is getting tougher on crime. Find out about Adams’ personal “YESS!” moment and the one that got away.

For a fantastic insight into crime, heroin, and justice in Maryland, this is a not-to-miss episode of The Maryland Crabs.

Thank you to everyone who wrote with suggestions for upcoming episodes. We are on it.  Coming up in the next few weeks will be the founders of The Annapolis Film Festival, Mayor Pantelides–both the candidate and the Mayor, Brooklyn Park’s very own Britney Girl Dale, and a surprise candidate for Mayor of Annapolis that will shake the race to its core. You will hear it here first!

Big geeky news…. we are now on iHeartRADIO!  So if you listen to iHeartRADIO, you can listen, rate, share, subscribe, favorite right there.  Their app and website search is a bit wonky at the moment but they promised us they’d fix it soon.  But here’s the direct link!

But if you are just joining us…. make sure you check out some (or 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….

  • Last week, we spoke with Marc Rodriguez. You may not know who he is right now, but you will. A sharp guy who has been working with Alderman Littmann and is poised to make a run for office in the upcoming Annapolis elections.
  • We recap 2016. Our last episode of 2016 was a lot of fun and lacking any direction whatsoever. We talked about how we decided to do The Maryland Crabs, where we want to go in 2017 and beyond, some of our past guests, and how good the lunch really was at Sammy’s Italian Pizza Kitchen in Eastport!
  • 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.

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

Tim restrained himself this week—nothing was stolen from the Courthouse! However, he did pick up a few drinking tips for must-visit pubs the next time he is in Ireland! Who knew the Courthouse was such a wealth of information!

Will Annapolis Finally Have an Hispanic Voice? Marc Rodriguez Thinks So! (E-19)

The City of Annapolis has an election coming up.  Yes, it is an “off” year election cycle and there are changes afoot. This week, Tim and John sit down with Marc Rodriguez and talk about his yet-to-be-officially-announced candidacy for Alderman for Ward 5 in the City. Rodriguez discusses his roots in Mexico City and Hillsmere (yes you read that right), what he has been doing for Alderman Littmann who will not be seeking another term, and what he brings to the Council chamber for the Latino community and the larger Annapolis community.

Thank you to everyone who wrote with suggestions for upcoming episodes. We are on it. Coming up in the next few weeks will be Anne Arundel County State’s Attorney Wes Adams and a candidate for Mayor of Annapolis that will shake that race to its core. You will hear it here first!

A peek into next week….Anne Arundel County State’s Attorney Wes Adams….after that whole Hogan thing, he only agreed to speak with us if we agreed to be searched on the way out of the Courthouse….apparently the Governor wants the stapler back that Tim took.

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!

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!
