Solvent…an Annapolis FinTech Startup (E-143)

The cannabis wave is sweeping the country with medical marijuana being legalized state by state, seemingly by the day. Can recreational weed be next? But here’s the catch-22…although growers, processors, and distributors are making money hand over fist, banking that money is extraordinarily difficult due to onerous and vague federal regulations. That’s where Solvent comes in.

John and Tim sit down with Brian Meyer and Tony Richards, two of the five cofounders of this Annapolis financial tech startup that is determined to simplify and revolutionize the banking aspect of the cannabis industry using proprietary tools and processes. We did not get high. Unfortunately.

Wow, has it really been 8 years for Kegs & Corks??? (E-142)

Discovering a good recipe for a festival is tough. How many festivals are one and done? How many lose their mojo after a year or two? Well, Kegs & Corks Craft Beer and Maryland Wine Festival seems to have found the answer as they are preparing to bring the 8th Annual Kegs and Corks Festival to the Anne Arundel County Fairgrounds on August 17, 2019.

This week, we sit down with Ashlee and Sharon to see how they do it. The answer is simple–keep it fresh. And fresh this year is The Amish Outlaws! They will be headlining and we speak with Ezekiel at the 23:30 mark.

So, if you are a beer or wine or music fan–this is the festival for you. Listen up as we talk music, vendors, and of course the beer and wine that will be coming on August 17th!

The Guinness Open Gate Brewery and Barrel House (E-141)

John sent Tim, unaccompanied, to The Guinness Open Gate Brewery and Barrel House in Halethorpe to have a pint or two with Ryan Wagner, Brewery Ambassador. Alone. Without any supervision. To a place with Guinness.

When you think Guinness, you think Extra Stout, right? You’re not wrong, but you need to hear about what the exquisite, new experimental beers coming out of the new Guinness Brewery right near BWI Airport. This brewery has a bar with it’s own two-floor museum of the history of Guinness. Ryan Wagner, takes Tim out of his comfort zone of Miller Lite to sample the newest offering from the old sod.

Thousands of local elected officials, business owners, entrepreneurs, and community leaders have graduated from the highly-esteemed Leadership Anne Arundel program over the past quarter century, and Kris sits down with the Crabs to talk about where the organization has been, where it is now, and where it is going. And, in the process, she might be able to talk John into joining the next class.

SPECIAL EPISODE: Surviving Key School #KeyToo

 

This special episode has been a long time in the making. Last year, the Key School was rocked with allegations of sexual abuse by faculty over a period that spanned decades. They hired a firm to look into it and issue a report. 

Today, we speak with two alumni who experienced abuse (in different decades) to present their stories. We hear why they feel the report is only scratching the surface of the problem, what the school must do moving forward, and how they are coping.

NOTE:  After release, there was one minor edit. At the 32:00 mark a characterization was made about the funeral and was followed by a comment stating that she was not there. We removed the characterization.
