The Maryland Crabs: Blame the Media? An Hour with P. Kenneth Burns (E-8)

mdcrabs_250x250

There aren’t many people a politician will not speak with. P. Kenneth Burns, a reporter for WYRP is one of them. We have him fresh off his dustup with Baltimore Mayor, Stephanie Rawlings Blake.

This time around, Tim, John, and Ken…or Kenny crab about the bull$hit ban, Baltimore politics, national politics, and how the media intersects with all of them. We talk Hogan, Blake, Senator Barb,  a guy to watch — Brandon Scott, and a bunch more.

Get some insight on the political pulse in Maryland with a reporter that has been plying this beat for years!


Hey, did you hear last week’s episode with Walter Vasquez. We crabbed about the growth of the Latino population in the area and the impact it will have on the upcoming local elections. We also figured out how that community really feels about the Crystal Spring development in Annapolis.

Did you get a chance to listen to Sean O’Neill talking about the business climate in Annapolis? Or the one where we crab about the incompetence of HACA, parking in Annapolis, and the overreach of the Historic Preservation Commission? Check them out!

The Maryland Crabs: Crime in Annapolis, A Different Point of View (E3)

mdcrabs_250x250Last week, we rambled on about the increase in crime in Annapolis, Maryland. If you missed the episode, give it a listen and this one will make more sense.

In this episode of The Maryland Crabs, John and Tim sit down to talk to Robert Eades who is a community activist, a product of public housing in Annapolis, and has some solid ideas on how to get control of the crime problem in the City. He is a fixture at City Hall where they only give him 3 minutes to speak. We gave him an hour!

We hear about rival drug dealers from other cities making Annapolis their home base, the slow decimation of any social programs that enabled people to move up from public housing, to the best way the police can easily make the biggest difference.

In this episode, Eades names names and pulls no punches.

Our discussion of this will continue next week when we speak with a resident that is not in public housing, but lives on the fringe of it and attempts to raise a family while dodging bullets.

The Maryland Crabs: Larry Hogan and Labor Day, Annapolis Airbnb and taxes (E1)

mdcrabs_250x250Welcome to The Maryland Crabs!  We are the new kid on the block and want to give a shout-out to Scott MacMullan and The Annapolis Podcast for leading the way.

We’re not the same thing though–oh no no!  Every other week, we will be dissecting the stuff that matters most to you here in Maryland! Nationwide, statewide, or hyper local.

This week, we tackle Maryland Governor Larry Hogan’s controversial (yet totally kick ass) Executive Order to require schools to start after Labor Day and finish before June 15th.  As predicted, most people love it, but the schools themselves (and their unions) are throwing hissy fits.  We also stir the pot on a hotel tax issue in Annapolis. Hotels pay a tax. Why don’t Air BnBs?  Good question brought up by Joe Tierney, the co-owner of Chez Ami Bed and Breakfast.

Before each podcast, we (Tim and John) meet for lunch and try to figure out what the hell we are going to do–this week’s episode is fueled by Little Italy Famous Pizza and Pasta … which we highly recommend.  Great new kid on the block!
