The complexities and achievements of William Donald Schaefer


We are continuing to raise the bar at Baltimore Positive all summer long with great guests and meaningful conversations with newsmakers, reporters, politicians and civic-minded folks who want better things for our city and community.

No one has dedicated more time and more words to local issues than C. Fraser Smith, who joined us for three spirited segments filled with knowledge, insight and the history of Baltimore’s renaissance.

This final third segment of our podcast series with C. Fraser Smith is Nestor’s favorite topic: what made William Donald Schaefer tick.

Next week: catch our three-part chat with Mayor Jack Young at Faidley’s Seafood in Lexington Market, which covered a wide array of topics from crime to the Inner Harbor and the future of sports in Baltimore.

Next Thursday, we move back to Catonsville for a lunch chat with legendary educator Nancy Grasmick at Jennings Cafe in Catonsville at 11 a.m.

And in a special holiday “double bill,” we’ll be back at Faidley’s Seafood on Tuesday, July 2nd with Matt Gallagher of Goldseker Foundation and legendary Baltimore sports agent, attorney and author Ron Shapiro beginning at 11 a.m. and going through a beautiful summer lunch with crab cakes.

Please follow and enjoy these #BaltimorePositive chats as we continue to discuss ways to improve our community.

And if you see Don or Nestor around town or on social media, let ’em know that you’re listening and viewing our Baltimore Positive chats.
