The Maryland Crabs: Crime in Annapolis, Living on the Edge (E4)

mdcrabs_250x250In this episode of The Maryland Crabs, John and Tim continue the conversation of crime in Annapolis and what to do to stem the tide. Jessica Pachler, a strong voice in the community was kind enough to talk to us and give us her opinion. Pachler is an Eastport mom raising a family in a home that abuts the HACA controlled Harbor House community.  She has some opinions!

If you missed it, make sure you listen to our prior episodes on crime:

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!
