CRABCAKE: More Power To You with Josh Cohen (May 2018)

This is a Crabcake from The Maryland Crabs! So, 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, depends on our mood. However, this week, you’re getting a JUMBO Crabcake, whether you like it or not. Because we started recording and didn’t want to stop.

The Maryland Crabs continues to celebrate Maryland Podcast Month with fellow podcaster, former Annapolis mayor, and Friend of the Crabs, Josh Cohen of More Power to You, a podcast dedicated to a sustainable, clean energy economy. It is intended to be accessible to listeners interested in clean energy without getting too deep into the technical weeds. Episodes feature timely and informative conversations with policy and industry leaders, as well as occasional recorded audio feeds from clean energy events.

CRABCAKE: 8th Annual Annapolis Irish Festival (May 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!

OK, so this week John talks with Kevin Chaney who is the current and original emcee of the Annapolis Irish Festival. Aside from an inside joke about Ted and Nina, we thank O’Loughlan’s for their hospitality (and food and drink) for letting us take up a table for an hour and tipping so poorly.

This year’s Annapolis Irish Festival will be a special one for many reasons–and you will need to attend to see about that; but today we chat about the vendors, the new and improved aspects of the fest and we answer the question–what will it take to get Kevin on stage in a kilt…and the subset question— in a kilt without underwear!

We talk about Carbon Leaf, Scythian, Gaelic Storm, The Gothard Sisters, Barleyjuice, Seamus Kennedy, EJ “Piper” Jones, and so many more.

We talk about the VIP section with unlimited “fun” (which is special code for “beer”), and special bathrooms.

We talk about the pipe competition and Friday night where first responders and military (and one guest) all get in for free,  and we share some stories of the past.

Come on out to The Annapolis Irish Festival on June 1st and 2nd and see why this is THE festival of the year here in Annapolis. Hey they even let the non-Irish folk in as well.

The festival is sponsored by Buck Distributing, The Greene Turtle, Homestead Gardens, Galway Bay and a host of others as well.

Tickets are available HERE and if you buy them prior to 1159pm on May 25th you can save $5 on every General Admission ticket by using the code AIF when you check out.

CRABCAKES: Annapolis Film Festival | The Shorts Challengers (March 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!

This year, the Annapolis Film Festival has a “Shorts Challenge” which will happen at Maryland Hall on Saturday the 24th at 10am. It is somewhat American Idol-esque in that there are filmmakers who have competed to be on the stage and to be judged by a panel of experts!

The catch–the audience gets to vote too.

Listen to 6 filmmakers pitch their idea for a short film and the best one will be awarded a fantastic production and post-production package and a slot in the 2019 Annapolis Film Festival.

We spoke to three of filmmakers who have made it to the final round. First up–Jessica Jacklin

WOMAN – JESSICA JACKLIN

Jessica is a Maryland native living in Brooklyn with a somewhat autobiographical film about a woman suffering from endometriosis. The film “Woman” takes you through the highs and the lows of reproductive health and allows her to inject her own experiences as well.

In addition, we talk about what winning will mean to her, and also about another short she has that will also be showing at the festival!

Next up, Annalise Lamberty

SUMMER FRUIT – ANNALISE LAMBERTY

Annalise is a transplanted Minneapolean (made that up) living in LA finishing up film school. Her film, “Summer Fruit” is the story of a young couple trying to make ends meet while dealing with a cancer diagnosis and how to save money, they tackled the very intimate act of cutting her hair rather than risking what treatment might do.

In addition, we talk about what winning will mean to her and her upcoming visit to Annapolis.

Next up is Lindsey Corriveau

WHAT HAPPENED TO LILLY – LINDSEY CORRIVEAU

Annalise is a local filmmaker based in Severna Park and knows Annapolis well.  “What Happened to Lilly” is the story of human trafficking and child prostitution in the US which is a tremendous issue. With this film, Lindsey hopes to bring light to the issue without necessarily relying on shock to do it.

In addition, we talk about what winning will mean to her, and also about another short she too, has that will also be showing at the festival!
