    Jerome Segal & David Lashar: Alternative Voices Offering Alternative Choices

    Jerome Segal & David Lashar: Alternative Voices Offering Alternative Choices

    We've got three months to go before we vote for a new governor. And subsequent to the big-party primaries in July, most Marylanders are thinking that they face a stark choice limited to Democratic and Republican candidates who represent the very best or the very worst of the two parties, depending on how you look at it. But there ARE other voices out there. In this podcast, Tim sits with two of the more interesting voices out there, 1) Jerome Segal, who is founder of Bread & Roses Socialism, ran for Governor in the Democratic primary, and is now running for President against Joe Biden, and 2) David Lashar, the Libertarian Party candidate for Maryland Governor this fall. It was a good coversation between three people with different political views but a common passion for civil debate on both general philosophy and specific issues.

    Jerome Segal & David Lashar...Dark Horse Gubernatorial Candidates

    Jerome Segal & David Lashar...Dark Horse Gubernatorial Candidates

    We've entered election season with just slightly over three months until we vote for a new governor. We're a solid-blue state that does not shy away from electing moderate Republicans. So the two major parties generally suck the air out of the room, leaving little for other candidates. That means that we rarely get to hear new ideas and perspectives. Tim sat down a couple of days before the primaries to chat with two gubanatorial cadidates...Jerome Segal, a Socialist who ran on the Democratic ticket (and is now running for President of the United States) and David Lashar, a Libertarian who ran for Congress during the last election. It was a good conversation between three people with different perspectives on politics who may agree here and there.

    Paula Poundstone...'Tis the Season to Be Funny (December 2021)

    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....we don't have any kind of plan. In any event, enjoy your Maryland Crabcake!
    It's not the Christmas season until Paula Poundstone comes to Rams Head on Stage ! This year, she will be in town for two shows on December 18. Tim and Paula are now best friends (probably) since they chat around this time every year. This time, we covered surviving the COVID lockdown, kids and social media, Twitter, cats (which is de rigueur at this point), and the release of her new album, "Paula Goes to College (for one night only)." We also talk more about her hilarious weekly podcast, No One Listens to Paula Poundstone.

    Chow - Empowering veterans through the culinary arts

    The transition to civilian life is not easy, and it can be daunting when considering a complete career change. Chow is a nonprofit designed to provide services for military veterans through cooking therapy, cookware donations, culinary education, and business advice for anyone from home chefs to aspiring food truck or restaurant owners. In this episode, Tim talks with Jordan Foley, a Naval Academy graduate, still on active duty, who founded Chow and completely eschews sleep.

    Football, Golden Goats, and Global Beer Responsible Day

    Football, Golden Goats, and Global Beer Responsible Day

    When you are tired of Zoom podcasts and the weather is beautiful and there is a big picnic table outside--you get together in PERSON and record a beercast!

    This week, Cassie, Lauren and Bill from Katcef Brothers Inc. are in the flesh and we relish getting socially distant together!

    What's on tap this month? Football, seltzers and the warning that there will be peppermint and gingerbread flavored ones on the horizon (yuk). Bud Light Platinum now has a seltzer too along with an alcohol free Bud Zero.

    We also touch base on the Golden Goat Ultimate Bud Light Tailgate Giveaway.  Details are right here and the odds are good!

    Despite the lack of events, there is a lot going on in the world of beer.  And speaking of events--the Military Bowl tells us that they are planning to move forward so ... stay tuned!

    The Fall Beers are Coming!

    The Fall Beers are Coming!

    Just because our local Oktoberfests have been cancelled along wth the real Oktoberfest is no reason that we can't start thinking about the delicious fall beers and the team at Katcef Brothers Inc teases us a little bit with a Spaten-Devils Backbone collaboration.
    We also hit on Cutwater's international tequila award and marvel at how well Bud LIght Seltzer contines to do with the intro of three nw flavors--pineapple, cranberry, and grapefruit. 
    September 18th is Global Beer Responsibility Day and I am searching Hallmark for a card... but locally, you want to stay tuned to Eye On Annapolis and Katcef Brothers for a fun promotion this fall that could score you a wild tailgate party....when we can do that again! :( 

    Enjoy and cheers!

Seltzr ,

Solid podcast

Albeit a bit Annapolis biased. On the other hand, they know Maryland politics and even interviewed Governor Hogan (my man with a plan for 2020)

S/V Auspicious ,

Well done

Tim and John and their guests make keeping up with the real issues in Maryland and especially Annapolis easy and fun. I appreciate their insights even when I don't agree. Their recent series on the candidates for election in Annapolis were outstanding. Major kudos for the work to put that together.

The podcasts are supported by a website and a couple of Facebook pages. They use Flash for links to their podcasts from Facebook. Flash is evil. -1 star for that. Sorry guys. Technology fail. I shouldn't have to reboot to listen to your podcast online. Podcasts work fine through iTunes but notifications of updates are sporadic - that's an Apple problem not theirs.

Keep up the good work and let me know if you want to talk about boats and boating.
