Our New Annapolis Police Chief, Edward Jackson (E-145)

The new Annapolis Police Chief Edward Jackson might be new in town, but he is a seasoned veteran when it comes to law enforcement, as he spent twenty years in the Baltimore Police Department, working his way up from a officer walking the beat to colonel. Chief Jackson marks a change in tack by Mayor Gavin Buckley who wanted a chief who could connect with the community and identify the subtleties of policing a town as diverse and unique as Annapolis.

John and Tim sat down with Chief Jackson to talk about where he came from and what he sees as his role as Annapolis’ top cop. How will his strategy be different from his predecessors? What does community policing look like under his leadership? Why would he agree to sit down with us, considering The Curse of the Maryland Crabs in regards to police chiefs? Can Tim hold his gun? We answer all of these questions and more!

CRABCAKE: John Shields…the culinary ambassador of the Chesapeake Bay (September 2019)

Today, we present a crabcake with a guy who REALLY knows his crabcakes… John Shields, who is been called the “Culinary Ambassador of the Chesapeake Bay.” Aside from being the owner of Gertrude’s Chesapeake Kitchen at the Baltimore Museum of Art, John has written multiple cookbooks on the cuisine of the Chesapeake region. The host of PBS’s “Chesapeake Bay Cooking” and “Coastal Cooking with John Shields”, his work has appeared in The New York Times, the Washington Post, Coastal Living, and Southern Living. He is a frequent guest on WYPR radio, local TV and at public events.

John’s newest book, The New Chesapeake Kitchen was released in October, 2018. Here, John’s decades of exploring and championing the Chesapeake region are presented in a volume that articulates his essential philosophy, as well as his commitment to, and love for the Chesapeake—its land and waters, its people, its history, and its food traditions.

Creating Families in Annapolis with Surrogacy (E-144)

Infertility. It is a problem that many people face for any number of reasons. There are a number of ways to deal with it including adoption and In Vitro Fertilization. But what about surrogacy?

This week, John speaks with Becky Morgan and Perla Piekutowski from the Center for Surrogate Parenting right here in Annapolis. What does it take to be a surrogate, and more importantly, what to expect when you are looking to start a family by surrogacy. The process is complex, but in the end worth it.

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.
