CRABCAKE: The Maryland Black Bears (March 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!

No, this is NOT a DNR podcast!  And while Maryland does not have any four-legged black bears, we DO have the two-legged variety in The Maryland Black Bears hockey team!

With their home ice right up at the Piney Orchard Ice Arena, this junior league team of the NAHL snuck up on our radar this year!

We went up and spoke with the President of the organization, Robyn Remick; the Head Coach and GM, Clint Mylymok; and Director of Communications Colin MacCarthy to learn all we could about the team.

The take away–if you can’t make it this season to see them, make plans to next year! I went last Friday night and had a blast watching elite hockey in my own backyard and enjoying a $20 evening (all you can eat soda, pasta and a ticket to the game).

CRABCAKE: Franchot: Taxes, Beer, the Annapolis Machine and a Run for Governor (March 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!

Today, we sit down with Maryland’s Comptroller, Peter Franchot–who I might add is one of the most accessible elected officials– to talk about his roles, his failed Reform on Tap program, taxes, and his battle with the “Annapolis Machine” that is trying to strip him of some of his duties in a vendetta. And with Governor Hogan as a term-limited Governor, we find out if Peter Franchot might be next in line!

Jared Littmann – Minimum Wage, Maximum Pain? (E-130)

The cost of living in Maryland is staggering. But, when you live in a state that has the country’s best flag, what would you expect? So how do you level the playing field? Raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour might be a good start, right? Welp, it’s a little more complicated than that when you’re a small-business owner.

Jared Littmann, owner of K&B True Value and former alderman of Ward 5 in Annapolis, could be described as a Progressive Democrat. But he’s not a fan of HB 166, which would raise the minimum wage by almost 50%. He must have a pretty good reason for this, right? He does. Jared breaks down what this legislation would mean from the perspective of someone who owns a family-run business.

Thank you to Roxana and Raul Rodriguez for hosting us at Caliente Grill on Forest Drive in Annapolis!
